I had remembered that Ed was 15 in the series, then I realized that I had no clue how old Winry was! Does it say anywhere how old she is, or do they just give an estimate?

    I always assumed that Winry was the same age as Ed and any size difference between them is because Ed is a mid.....*gets an Auto-mail kick to the head*

  • For what it's worth, there's a light novel / short-story (though not by Arakawa) involving Ed, Al, and Winry at the village school . . . but seeing that they live in the countryside, there might be greater fudging between grade boundaries.

You can check the FMA Wikia

Her year of birth is mentioned as 1899, which is the same as Edward's, although their exact birthdays are never stated. She is 15-16 years old during the course of the manga/anime, and around 18 post-timeskip.

MyAnimeList lists her exact birthday as June 9th, 1899. However, I don't know if there's any credible source for that.

  • Arakawa supposedly doesn't really give character birthdays much---this was mentioned in one of the post-chapter inserts I saw (re: Ed's birthday), which other people have also mentioned---so the MAL date probably isn't accurate.

  • @Maroon, I see. Makes you wonder where MAL comes up with that stuff.

  • Interestingly enough, the current revision of the Wikia gives her birthday as July 26 of the same year. I wonder where people are getting these dates.

    Alright, with some digging around, I've found that there is a probably reference for the 1899 year from the second manga guidebook. (See this forum post and the discussion here.)
