    Two well-liked Shounen protagonists who also happen to be English. Well ok Ed technically isn't but still.

    Which of these two do you prefer?

    I'd have to say Allen. Edward just never really clicked with me and Allen has a complex and existential character arc that is just really fun to watch unfold.

    Ed isn't English in any way, not just technical. Amestris is supposed to be Germany.

    I voted for Allen, because Edward is still too much of a typical shonen protagonist; he may not be a complete clone of Goku the way that Luffy, Naruto, and Natsu are, but he still is short-tempered and clueless about romance, whereas Allen is actually calm and rational and seems to have some concept of romance.
