And we start off with gushing blood. Looks like it's going to be an awesome episode! And sure enough, it kicks butt even if people say it's dragged out. I guess it just seems that way since the battles in FMA are usually short and sweet. *has flashbacks to DBZ*

Yes, Irena, Fuu's mustache looks like he snorted a fish! laugh.gif

Ed blowing up makes up for the lack of Fullmetal vs. Flame episode! Love the epicness of this episode too. LanFan's wicked ninja skills... Ed's heroic actions... Roy casually blowing up a bar... Pride being Pride... Love it!

And it only gets more exciting from here... wub.gif

It's really sad to see Gluttony go ;___;
Pride is so ruthless...


Though it's nice that the anime has "slowed down". One chapter -> one episode? That sounds just about right! Keep that up animation team! XD

I think Takayama Minami should have dubbed for Pride instead of Envy...

Disasterpiece - please don't spam by asking such things, you just have to check your usual sites for them to update with the subtitled version.

Shall fill in with my thoughts in a little while, only just watched 47 stitchface.png

- animation already clearly better than last weeks, which I think is important with battle scenes, especially at the speed RanFan works at.

- Team Edward's blasting off again! (oh he is looking so good)

- Madam Christmas is such a gangsta moll, love her.

- Evil grin is most evil, blood galore! And oh no, fire, run Simba!

- Goodness, even I pity Gluttony.

I think the whole reason this episode was "dragged out" (aka simply slightly slower paced!) is that they didn't want Gluttony's end to feel too abrupt.

Here's a homonculus that's been around since the beginning of the series, was only just reintroduced after 20 episods out of action...and is being offed already.

Even if it was (sadly for him) almost nothing but him getting a beating, I think they at least wanted to give him plenty of time in the episode before he was finished off.

Nice episode. It was slow paced but not too much dragged out in my opinion.

I loved the whole Pride vs Ed fight sequence and the new music at the beginning. Poor Gluttony he is one of my favorite homunculus alongside Envy, it's a pity that he had to go in a such cruel way. However it was a good reason to see Pride in all his evilness.

I'm glad that thy didn't change the conversation between Roy and Madame Christmas, it was one of my favorite part in the manga.

[/superinformativepost]


Only changes I noted were extending Gluttony's fight, removing the fourth man from teh team of people investigating Madam Christmas, making it seem like Mustang and Madam Christmas DIDN'T kill those men (which will make more sense in reflection later on) and making it clearer how Gluttony was anywhere near Pride when the flashbangs went off. None of these changes seemed bizaare to me. Actually the stuff with Gluttony especially worked really well.

I liked the music playing while Lan Fan and Ling beat up on Gluttony, it sounded more like music you'd expect to here while the Homunculus were beating up on the good guys, not while the good guys are beating up on the Homunculus. Kinda made you feel even more sorry for poor old Gluttony. I will question one thing tho; Gluttony jumping to his feet like that, was hilarious and impossible to my eyes. Funny tho.

I'm kinda dissapointed that Pride didn't switch to his Selim voice while taunting Ed, cause that's how it came across to me in the manga. But I can't complain too much because every scene Pride was in was solid gold awesome. I'm bias obviously, just look at my avatar, but Pride really came off as creepy and menacing this week, far more than he did last week. It was nice to see him in action properly as well, I especially like how little Pride talks compared to his siblings. Seriously compare Pride's fight to against Greed, Lust, Envy or even Wrath. Those four spend almost as much time talking as they do fighting, ESPECIALLY Envy. Pride, just says what's needed and gets on with it. I guess it's a way for showing how little Pride thinks of his enemies.

But of course I have give my judgement on my number one favourite moment in the entire series; Pride kills Gluttony. And my verdict? WOW. I didn't think they could make that scene any more harsh than it was in the Manga but they seriously managed. They made it more drawn out and alot more brutal. I have to admit I was never a fan of the Brotherhhod Gluttony voice but it has definately grown on me. I'm not 100% sure that the original actor could've given a performance that good. The main reason I like it is just how innocent and confused Gluttony is right up to the moment he's killed, he really doesn't understand what's going on until it's too late. He's so trusting, and this along with his love of Lust and the scenes he had with Al previously, make you wonder if the guy was ever truly evil, or just very very devoted to his family, which ultimately betrayed him.

It also says alot about Pride, the other Homunculus have demonstrated some kind of familiar love for each other (Envy and Gluttony's reactions to Lust's death being a prime example, even Wrath seemed to respect her) but Pride, you really get the feeling he sees all of them beside his Father as below him sometimes. It's what makes him such a great lil' badass.

Oh and Mustang did some stuff but I'm not fussed.

Next week: Okay next week will be more of the awesome Pride battle, but I've also got a suspicion... that it'll be another one Chapter episode. Not gonna complain, just means more Pride biggrin.gif

Didn't notice that it dragged things out at all. The pace and content was perfect, for me; it didn't rush through things, and it managed to keep me excited, it never felt slow or boring.

The music was very neatly placed throuhout the episode, except for during the after-credits scene. That track is not one of my favourites, and they always keep looping it whenever it plays. Also, the animation here wasn't the best. Rest of the episode looked pretty good most of the time though, but, did anyone else find Mustang looking a bit off this week? I don't know what it was, maybe he had a bad hair day or something.

Something I noticed: Why did Roy change back into a military uniform to kidnap Mrs Bradley? Aren't they all kind of supposed to be rebelling or something?

^ well, I know he is wearing them on the Promised Day.
But it is a bit confusing I suppose.
I'm not going to complain though smile.gif

I loved Mustang and Hawkeye taking down Mrs. Bradleys guards though.
I just wish the camera angle had been better.

I rather enjoyed this episode. It seemed to have everything in even amounts and was very exciting.

Perhaps so she could recognize him better? Or perhaps he was thinking "screw it, I want them to know I'm doing this to make a point." I dunno really...haha.

Hi everyone btw, first post after lurking for quite some time, lol.

I always thought it was because his uniform is easier to move around in/more comfortable than if he were wearing his civilian clothes.

Or maybe Arakawa just threw it on him because she's drawn the dang thing so many times she could probably do it in her sleep. xD
