Initial thoughts:

- Some decent action, but after a while the same battle gets a tad tedious
- May Kick!
- Mamoru Miyano is too good for his role. Hate Ling, like Miyano.
- Alphonse with Xaio Mei is adorable!
- Spending way too much time on Winry, not giving a damn
- Oh god, Ranfan sounds like she's in SUCH agony. Cringing!
- Oooh, nice callback to Ed's arm trap from ep 15. You know, I never even though of the parallel until now! Yikes.
- I love Ed struggling in between all those people arguing
- Ooooh, what a cool place to end!


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

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

Sneaking in before Amestris Star, but the Preview Screencaps are up.

Thanks again RandomC

Thoughts based on Raw:

- That part where Winry held on to Ed's hand to try and keep him there was a lovely added extra by the anime.
- It's only brief but I love that moment were you see from RanFan's P.O.V. All prasie her V.A too.
- Battle time Al owns my heart almost as much as his brother. The hands grasping for Scar were brilliant. Mei kicks butt also.
- Fangirl parallel! Both RanFan and Winry are wrapped up in coats sacraficed mid battle.
- Winry's flashback round the table, the perspective looked a little awkward.
- *scary fangirl moment removed for lack of coherence*
- Next weeks should be pretty good.

Slight Extra: Perhaps it's the EdxWin shipper in me, but has the anime added moments to enhance their relationship? Like it this episode, when he see's her sat at the table he jogs in with a smile on his face whereas in the manga he was stern. Plus in the car, he's facing her, not looking at the back of her head.

Man I just finished watching that ep raw on this japanese youtubeish site


http://up.b9dm.com/lz/11466.html

I must say, the animation is spectacular and is up there with episode 19. May came in and kicked [All hail lord Xenu] literally and they fit in all the great moments. I was hoping they would end the ep with the the Edwin train scene but they did such a excellent job that no worries and Ranfan was so awesome in that ep. Nana Mizuki outdone herself. Bones really outdone themselves in those and i hope the next episodes will maintain that quality. I glad I almost stayed up all night for this. hahahhaa.

Hmm... The animation wasn't that great... but I am thankful that they diddn't show Gluttony's explosion too detailed!
And finally the music of "what we will see in next episode" really annoys me. We need new music for this.

I thought this episode was amazing, this is the first episode in a while 19 to be specific thats had be this excited! The action was fluid and consistent, the scene where Lin put the bomb in Gluttony was done well. The explosion was also kinda cool, I think they didnt show as much detail as the manga did but its cool. Ed and Al's Part 2 battle with Scar was awesome, Ed's mini fight with Scar was cool but from the preview you though it would of been longer, and I love how May popped in and kicked Al though I thought it was better in the anime because it was animated awesome as well as funny. I love all these EdXWin scenes they put into the anime, they always pull a lot of emotions to the table and its very reality like. Though the animation in Brotherhood is usual fluid but manages to maintain lots of detail but in this one it was still fluid but lost some details, thats my only con. The scenes with Lan Fan were so powerful, just like in the manga I could feel her pain lol. The arguing at the end of the episode was entertaining as well, and we also got a little introduction of Gluttony's belly, that was an awesome cliffhanger. wink.gif Lin's voice actor is so experienced and amazing btw!

Brotherhood is FINALLY following the manga correctly! They've got their pacing downpat now!

It's too bad they didn't go at a better pace from the beginning. I knew they have $$ issues and didn't know how long the show was going for, but I'm sure it turns off a lot of newcomers to the series. My friends are lazy and won't read, so I wanted to get them into Brotherhood...but I'm not really sure that they'd have the patience to wait until episode, like, sixteen for it to get good.

This looks amazing, though. I'm becoming so excited just looking at all these pictures and knowing that I'll be able to watch all my fave manga scenes come to life. This may seem kind of OT, but it's what I thought when I got all excited over the pics Chiyo posted. //rant over///

After seeing the RAW and man do I wish I'd understand what they said. On first sight, everything was amazing.
Surprisingly, I'm more and more fond of Ling Yao (who I don't care about in the manga) and am not afraid to proclaim so in public wink.gif Poor LanFan, her hand covered with blood looked so alive (if you get what I mean, like a hand that is still attached to body).
Loved Winry with Ed's coat over her and had a laugh at Hawkeye's secret identity (steeling Fuery's glasses, shame on you laugh.gif )
And a glimpse of Garfiel-san made me happy above else, I love the man/woman. And Mei holding Scar's hand leading him away in dust - so cute!
