Its a good old fashioned recap show. Interesting, because Fullmetal Alchemist is one of the few anime series I remember that very sparingly used old clips and flashbacks. They didn't even have a recap or clip episode.

There's some new voice over by the Elrics and principle characters. I think its basically a refresher before the movie opens up in a couple of months.

Heh, I just saw this. It's worth a watch. One of the sections is from Envy's perspective which is pretty interesting, and yeah, I didn't catch the Greed info from the show either so it seems somewhat new.

There isn't any new footage or anything, but it does a nice job of outlining the show and describing what all happened and why.

Sparingly? There was a six-episode flashback (and a flashback within that flashback? Probably, but I can't recall exactly). D But no actual clip shows or anything, this is true.

Yes, but they were flashbacks we haven't seen before. Typically, anime series constantly reshow and reuse flashbacks of footage we have already seen. Naruto and DBZ were pretty infamous in that regard.

What I'm saying is, every FMA episode is truly a new episode.

Ohh, glad I saw this thread. I just finished watching the special and it gave me a pretty decent fresh FMA fix. Recommended viewing for anyone feeling binge-watcher's remorse. So, does anyone know when/where/why this aired?

It's not an episode; it's a 55 minute special that basically recaps the entire show (so don't watch it yet if you do stumble across it! :P ep 51 spoilers and such).

It aired in Japan (or so I reckon, based on the fact that it was subtitled), though I'm not sure when. Someone told me about it the day before yesterday.

As for the 'why,' I've heard that it aired to give people a nice recap before the movie comes out, but that may have been speculation. (: I haven't looked into it.

That wasn't new footage, it was shown during the Izumi arc in the series.

That's another cool thing about the special guys. It basically shows all the Rizenbul and the Elric brother human transmutation things in chronological order.

In the series if you remember, they kind of jump back and forth a little bit. This new special just takes all the old footage and places it in the order of how it actually happened. So it was cool seeing all this basically old footage edited different.

So you see them lose their mother. Then set up the human transmutation experiment, dropping their blood in the pan. Then it shows them starting the transmutation that goes horribly wrong. You see Al lose his body, Ed loses his leg. Ed sees the horrible thing they created. And then he transmutes Al's soul into the armor and loses his arm in the process. Then you see Al take them to the Pinakos and you pretty much know the rest.

But there are ways wink.gif .

I didn't think it would be against board policy if it wasn't an actual episode (IE: An episode FUNimation probably wouldn't even release)

Could someone drop me a PM? XD
