Please post the discussions on the content of episode 51 here.
This thread is declared as a Spoiler zone for the content of the first 51 episodes.

Summary: The officer who activates the homunculi dolls is eaten by them, and they turn o the scientist that was with him next. Edward, Scar, and the chimera arrive at the doorway near where Barry died. Ed tries to open it, to no avail. Suddenly it opens and the homunculi dolls pour in. Olivier takes a general hostage, but he orders his subordinates to shut the gates so that Mustang's and the Briggs forces can't get in. Sloth attacks, but Olivier moves out of the way and the general is crushed instead. Edward's group tries to fight off the dolls, but they don't have any luck. Edward suddenly realizes what they are. He shuts the exit to the room so they can prevent them from escaping. Back at the mound, Heinkel realizes that Pride has been sending out morse code signal, but it's too late. Kimbley attacks, breaking the mound, which releases Pride. Underground, Mei runs from the dolls, balancing the jar with Envy on her head, but Envy is swallowed by one of the dolls and takes control of it. Devouring the other dolls, Envy returns to his original form. Olivier tries to fight Sloth, but isn't damaging him. When she is about to be crushed, her brother Alex arrives to assist her. Alphonse tries to help Heinkel and escape from Pride and Kimbley, who shows him the Philosopher's Stone he saved from the mine. Alphonse uses it to challenge Kimbley and Pride, to Kimbley's amusement.. - © Penguintruth, used with permission.

My initial thoughts:

- Full-armored Greed in the new OP! Awesome!
- This guy's thinking, "NOTHING CAN GO WRONG!" What a doofus.
- It's an army of skinny, white, monsters! It's like a Kate Moss army!
- Aw, Barry. D:
- Olivier <3
- I like how this general actually has the guts to order the lock down of the gates.
- And now he's squished by Sloth.
- Yawn, fighting the stupid white zombie things.
- And more of them pour in. And I continue to not care.
- ICEUUUCREAMUU TRUCK
- Kimbley sure knows how to make an entrance.
- Oh, that wacky pair of Mei and Envy! What will they do n---
- Oh, right, Envy's extremely stupid, contrived return to his previous self. It's a bit different, though.
- Olivier, why are you shooting Sloth, KNOWING it's not going to work?
- Sibling back-up! THE ARMSTRONG SIBLINGS TEAM-UP!
- Pretty badass, there, Alphonse.
- The new ED is... eh, all right.

Fairly good episode.


--------------------

Fullmetal Alchemist is over! Thank you, Hiromu Arakawa! ;_;

- Beautiful opening, will write more in the other thread.
- Those zombies are still creepy.
- Olivier is still cool.
- Hi Sloth. You missed Olivier.
- Wow, there are so many zombies.
- Buccaneer looks scary.
- That extra scene with Roy-tachi wasn’t in the manga. But I liked it.
- And Kimblee arrived. Wow, Selim changed back to his child voice.
- What’s with the Fullmetal Alchemist guy? He sounded like the zombies.
- The other eyecatch was a cool Al. That’s better.
- Envy’s voice is still cute. What, the zombie ate him? That didn’t happen in the manga. And now he is back.
- More Olivier fight. And Alex is here to save his sister.
- Finally Al got a chance to be very cool. And they used nice, new music when he decided to use the Philosopher’s Stone.
- I like the new ending too.

Happy Easter, everyone!

Am I the only one who LOL'ed when that General guy got bitten on his neck? laugh.gif

Maybe those zombies aren't that creepy, but being cornered by like a hundred sure is scary.

I love May for being so cool in her fight today.

I also love the first eyecatch. laugh.gif

- New OP, woohooo! ;D I liked it, very angsty thou, well, it's going to be over soon, we have to face it...
- Zombies~!
-Keyhole lagging
-Badass Olivier is badass, she's made of awesomeness
- Lolwut, the Fullmetal Alchemist voice, he should really shut up, but first eyecatch was for the lol, at least for me, really good one xD
- Argh, Kimblee, I hate you but you're so awesome at times
- Here we go with Envy, nah, so he's back it means THIS one particular thing is going to happen in the anime soon (I'm royai fangirl so guess what I'm talking about)
- More Olivier and Armstrong siblings united, the epicness has begun
- New ED is well, urm, the Winry one was worse, it's not bad, but it wasn't oh-so-awesome

Cheers for the pics Omni

No idea how we'd survive without em haha

On the site it shows a brief clip of the end of the episode and wow... they should've waited a week to change endings.

I mean yeah that scene is still nice btu imagine how much better that scene with Al at the end wouldn't been if Ending 4 had kicked in at that moment.

I'll post afull opinion when it gets subbed.

But I am so looking forward to next week; they better not screw up my favourite line in the series of all time.

Thank you so much Omni! I'm so relieved that FMA will still be blogged. =D I love the new layout by the way!

(I'm being really lazy here as i just copied what i wrote down in another forum. >.<)

Oh god. What an amazing episode!! I'm still in awe! The animation was pure eye candy! 8D

Firstly, I love the new OP and ED! I'm not usually a fan of slow openings and endings but not this time. The more i watch it, the more i like it. Such amazing animation and songs. It's so beautiful...The opening has such sadness but Ed smiling at the end makes it feel bittersweet as a whole. The ending is uplifting and hopeful with Ed's determined stare and Al's smile.
It's really suiting...It made me tear up and reflect back on the series. That FMA is really going to end. I absolutley love how at the beginning of the opening it shows Ed and Al then pans across to show the rest of the cast. The shot of Greed was incredible along with the shot of Mustang. I can't believe FMA will be over in a few months...=(

Anyway, onto the episode! 8D

-Those zombies give me chills. Seeing them eat that general guy was disturbing.
-Oh Ed...opening the door. Lol! XD
-The smooth criminal is back! Hello Kimblee. My god..he makes an entrance
-Poor Heinkel. T___T
-Mei's fight with those Zombies was effin' awesome.
-Envy's revival was so sickening. I like it! 8D Though i don't remember him being eaten by those zombies in the manga when he was midget. 0.0
-Olivia never ceases to amaze me. Gah...=w=
-Alex's entrance made me laugh! <33
-Al...oh god...Al! Gah...Epic personified in a suit of armour. Love him!! This was my favorite scene in the entire episode. Al helping Heinkel without his legs was such an intense and moving moment. The music, the voice acting and the animation were all perfect. Al was so gar stepping out of the smoke looking so determined with the "Ray of light" playing. It was beautiful!!

The best thing is we haven't seen nothing yet!! I'm really looking forward to the final chapters being animated. Waiting weekly is just so hard now. XD

Oh! I forgot to add, the eyecatch guy sounded like a little girl for the first eyecatch. No...just no. XD That's wrong. Your a guy, you don't laugh like a girl....*shudders* Glad to get that out of my system. XD

O.O

The EdWin fan in me just about died for joy at the last shots of the OP! biggrin.gif

I also just now LOLed at the screencap of first eyecatch. "See no evil, speak no evil, hear no evil"!!! XD It seems that Bones can't quite take the crazy zombies 100% seriously either. happy.gif

I can't believe we're getting so close to the end... I'm not one to cry over just about anything (I can count the times I have in the last decade on one hand, I think), but this series has meant so much to me, I really think I might shed more than one tear over the next couple months, between the manga and Brotherhood... *sigh*

My thoughts exactly. =D Anything Edwin = squee!! XD Yes. lol.

Oh my gosh! I didn't notice that! Nice catch! I was too focused on that guy's voice. XD Zombies doing the monkey is very funny. Oh Bones. XD

Yes...i feel the same way. It's the only anime that i truly care about and hold close to me....it's made quite a big impression and has become a part of my life. So to think about ending is...hard. I think i will feel empty for a while when it ends and will truly bawl when the last chapter of the manga and last episode of FMA:B come out.

Wow!! You did a great job! It's so beautiful! <33 Way to go JELEE. They are practically glowing! 8D Beautiful zombies...Oops...well um...they do look really great there. XD

Just a random thought...Selim has gone from super mega evil/creepy to adorable again. XD It's those eyes.....He lost his awesome sexy purple eyes.

Alphonse and the transition was amazing. I was surprised to hear the music for like 20 seconds before the ED kicked in.

May vs Zombies was actually pretty nice. Did anyone else think of Gluttony from CoS when Envy was eating the zombies?
