Episode 8: "The Fifth Laboratory"
Seeking the truth about the Philosopher's Stone, Ed slips into the Fifth Lab of the Amestris military. There, he discovers the Alchemy circle for the Philosopher's Stone on the floor of the lab. But, he is attacked by an armored man who calls himself Number 48. Meanwhile, outside of the lab where Al awaits Ed, another armored man, Number 66 attacks Al. Fierce fights among them ensue, and during the fight Ed and Al discover that both Number 48 and Number 66 have their souls attached to the armors, like Al....

=======================================

Episode Summary: (courtesy of Edamame)
Desiring to learn more regarding the terrible truth behind the Philosopher’s Stone, the Elric brothers had snuck into the abandoned Research Laboratory Five. Outside of the laboratory, Al is confronted by a mysterious armored figure that goes by the alias of Number 66. While Al plans to defend himself against Number 66, Ed stumbles upon a transmutation circle that is used transmute the legendary Philosopher’s Stone. Before he even has time to ponder the transmutation circle, Ed is also met by armored figure that goes by the name of Number 48. Number 48 is entrusted with the job of eliminating all outsiders who have infiltrated the building, and that means eliminating Ed. Ed enters into battle against the armored figure, only to realize that the suit of armor is completely empty inside, just like that of his younger brother. Shocked by Edīs revelation, Number 48 reintroduces himself as Slicer, and proceeds to tell Ed that he was once a victim on death row. Ed asks if the artificial body of Slicer also has a seal that mediates the connection between his soul and body. Slicer shows Ed the blood-seal and tells him that if he is to destroy the seal, then he shall win the battle. Having seen Slicerīs weakness, Ed should have a upper hand in the battle ahead, but Slicer has another trick up sleeve.

Back at East City Military Headquarters, Colonel Roy Mustang and Maes Hughes discuss the current situation regarding Scar. Mustang tells Hughes that Scar is presumed dead and that it is safe to free the Elric brothers from their escorts Denny Brosch and Maria Ross. Unfortunately, Brosch and Ross learn that they have been outsmarted by the two brothers who Ross knows have snuck out to head to the laboratory. While Denny and Bross make their way to the laboratory, Ed fights against Slicer only to have his automail “act-up” in the middle of the battle, and therefore put him at a disadvantage against his opponent. Outside, the battle rages on between Al and Number 66. Al quickly learns that the body of Number 66 is exactly like his own after knocking 66īs helmet off. Number 66 tells Al that he is the infamous serial killer “Barry the Chopper”, who was once a butcher who grew bored of chopping meat and decided to chop up people instead. Barry begins to toy with Alīs mind by saying that Al may truly have never been human and that his memories were created.

Inside the lab, Ed is able to trick Slicer and remove his helmet that holds the blood-seal. Thinking he has won the battle, Ed lets down his guard only to be stabbed by the remaining half of Slicerīs body; Slicerīs body actually houses the souls of two brothers. Ed is able to defeat the artificial body of the Slicer brothers, but is unable to kill them. If Ed were to accept the Slicer brothers as inhuman, he would have to do the same for his own brother Al. In exchange for the humanity that Ed has shown the brothers, they agree to tell him more about the Stone. Before one of the brothers can even speak, he has his blood seal destroyed by the mysterious woman named Lust who is accompanied by a strange being named Envy. Envy puts pay to the other brother and antagonizes Ed for ruining their plan, but says that he is still a valuable sacrifice.
Outside, an explosion is occurring that threatens to destroy the entire lab. Envy carries a seriously wounded Ed outside to Al, Denny, and Brosch before disappearing. At the nearby jail, the psychotic murderer Kimbley reminiscences about his days in the Ishbal Massacre as the laboratory crumble to pieces.

Wow, in opposition to previous episode, that was awesome. The animation looked gorgeous, the voice acting even better (though I didn't like the last part, when Alphonse actually panted...). The pace was perfect - The idea to place only the battle scene was very good. Ed battling against Slicer was soo fast <3 The jokes were balanced and SD haven't popped every one minute.

To be honest I didn't like only two things:

-The "Fullmetal Alchemist!" guy. Man, I wanna choke him
-If I saw correctly on Keyhole, Barry didn't slice the guard head in halves? Too bad...

And the next week we're gonna see one of my favourite and most touching scenes~


--------------------
Due to the cancellation of the end of FMA, Kasumisty must think of new signature.

It may take a while.

He sliced him *needs to check coz I saw it with dratty Keyhole lag* but it wasn't as crude as in the manga.

Now... for the ep:

I loved it! It's my favorite after episode 5 till now *___*

(Ahahaha, and they put the "Get yourself a wife" phrase <3

Nah, this was perfect to me... and the upcoming episodes... can it be next week already?

I was surprised at the pace and how much manga material they covered in just this one episode. I expected them to get to Envy and Lust's appearance at the farthest, but to the collapse of the building, too? I'll have to watch everything again to get a real sense of how I feel about the episode. They definitely handled everything a lot better here then in the previous episode, though.

Considering how fast they're going, and how soon the Alphonse thing gets wrapped up in the manga, that certain event may occur in the next episode.

Episode 10 will bring that event I suppose, we might get a glimpse of something in Ep. 9 *nods and sighs*

Well, if you recall, Hughes dies at the end of Chapter 15 and his funeral is in Chapter 16, so they may seperate it like that, unless they plan to do it like in the first series where it all happens in one.

I'm so looking forward, and not, at the same time.

Currently downloading the raw version. @C. Eduardo, I'm not sure if the subs have come out yet, fansubbers are working hard but they're not quite that fast. tongue.gif

Anyway, I think the "certain event" is probably coming in episode 10. It's even titled "Seperate Paths," which was the same title as the manga chapter. It makes me sad that it's coming so fast though. sad.gif

Well, in the manga it actually IS very fast. Volume 4. So I consider that as being fast. Anime is reflecting that fastness in my opinion.

Subs are still not out... actually I prefer waiting a bit and getting a good version wink.gif

True true...still makes me sad though. sad.gif

I didn't really need subs to understand what was going on because I remembered what they said in the manga lol. Plus I could pick out curious words with my limited knowledge of Japanese. tongue.gif

I agree with Kasumisty. This was very satisfying episode!!! biggrin.gif
Things move fast in this episode, but it didn't feel rushed, and animation quality was much better than the last episode, IMO. Can't wait to watch it again with better quality sound and vid later!!

And out of the shadow of lurking I crawl! biggrin.gif

Anyway, I thought that this episode was far better than the previous - even more so now that I'm watching an HQ raw instead of Keyhole... tongue.gif Is it just me, or have the action-oriented episodes been overall better animated so far? I didn't catch any off-model moments or annoying smirk lines this time around.

Al's voice acting, save his panting at the end of the episode (Oh, continuity! The Greed arc later looks back on this moment and laughs!), really stuck out to me as being particularly good. Lots of emotion. And wow, Envy was absolutely brutal - him striking Slicer down, strange as it is to say, held more of an impact for me here than even in the manga.

This week's episode was completely satisfying, and fulfilled pretty much all of my expectations. Hopefully next week will continue with this trend...
