Talk-back/content discussion for English dubbed episode on Adult Swim starts on page 4.
Please post the discussions on the content of episode 61 here. This thread is declared as a Spoiler zone for the content of the first 61 episodes.
NO REFERENCES TO CHAPTER 108, even in spoiler tags. Nothing. Not a word. Such posts will be edited. This is so nothing is spoiled for the people who do not follow the manga.
Please don't ask for links on where to watch this episode, raw or subbed. Discussions on 'where to watch' belong in Where/How to Watch FMA Series 2. Don't post screencaps unless highlighting something important about the content of the episode. Just like on in most area's of the board, avoid one line posts, spam of any kind or conversations between two members.
-Do not spam. -Add spoiler tags to spoilers -Do not go off topic -Do not fight
Spam means one line posts that contain little content. "OMG that ep was so cool" would be an example of spam. If you enjoyed the episode please specify what you enjoyed so much, was there anything you didn't like?
Spoilers mean anything you know will happen in upcoming episodes. Not everybody reads the manga and you may reveal something they didn't know. For future episode discussion, please go to the relevant topic. If you are unsure how to use spoiler tags, please ask.
Going off topic means discussing a characters actions outside of the episode, or talking about the artwork, or upcoming episodes etc. I know this can happen easily so don't be upset if I move your posts or guide you in the right direction. Double check the forum for the right place to take your post, or if required, start a new topic.
Everybody can voice their opinion, and nobody is correct just as nobody is incorrect. Because none of you will spam (right?) people will justify why they didn't like something. You are welcome to say "well I like that part because..." but you CAN NOT say "no you are wrong because..."

My initial thoughts:
- No OP? Woah, serious business. - Woah, Father's usual voice coming out of that new body is weird. - Typical villain mistake. STOP TALKING AND JUST KILL THEM, STUPID. - OH HEY, LET'S RESOLVE THE BEST CLIFFHANGER IN THE STORY ALMOST IMMEDIATELY - Cha-La, Head Cha-La.... oh, right, sorry. Thought I was watching Dragon Ball Z for a few moments. - Oh, Bradley, you so crazy. - And, of course, Scar's brother is the mega genius hero of the whole story. *cough*rubbish*cough* - Guys, can't you just point Roy in the right direction and tell him to blast some fire? He's just standing there, pointlessly! - STOP GOING AT BRECKNECK PACE! SLOW DOWN, DAMN IT! - Well, at least this part with Pride looks awesome. - This part with Kimbley, however, makes no effing sense whatsoever and is complete B.S. - This part with Ed entering Pride is even more nonsense.
I'm going to vomit after this episode.
Fullmetal Alchemist is over! Thank you, Hiromu Arakawa! ;_;
- No opening this time? - Old Fatherís voice doesnít suit sexy Father at all. - Hoho looks serious. And the counterattack begins. - Wow, the soul tornado. - So this is why we didnít have an opening. Rain is an insert song now. - May and Hoho are great. - I see epic animation in the Bradley vs. Scar fight. - Bye Bradley. - Bones loves using Battle Scherzo for epic scenes. - Oh, the talk about the alchemy in Amestris. - Scarís brother got lots of flashbacks. Well, he was the first who realized what's going on. - Izumi & Sig reunion. - Aww, the Roy & Riza scene. - Pride looks very creepy with one shadow eye. - Kimbley cameo! - Ed, youíre so awesome. - And hereís baby Selim. Great episode again, it covered almost 2 chapters.

Hot!Father has the same voice as the old Father? That's... terrible. Well, I'll save my judgments until I've seen the episode. Still, it covers 105 and 106? That's a lot of material to blaze through...

Hey, one of those shots of Hohenheim in the beginning was from the 4th OP!
Anyway, I think this episode covered a little too much. There was some action from the beginning of Chapter 105 and 106 cut, namely this favorite page of mine. So things seemed a little less DBZ-ish, but Hohenheim throwing the purple ball up in the air was cool. And the music placement wasn't anything like last episode, though I did like "Fanfare for the Brave" at the end.
The first five minutes or so with the soul tornado bit felt rushed the most, but Wrath's demise and Pride's defeat were fine. That's a really cool way to go out, Bradley, catching that sword in your mouth like that and stabbing Scar in his side.
And so Bones really does ship Royai. Riza wasn't trying to hold her hands out to Roy in the manga when she found out he went blind.
I don't know about this episode, maybe I need to wait for subtitles, but at the moment episode 60 was definitely superior.

this has got to be one of the most epic episodes of this show. hands down. no op is wat i'd predicted bones would do....so im happy awesome animation (budget blown) fa sure scar vs bradley (more awesomeness from kameda) lots of fast paced stuff tbh , hoho's plan worked better for me in the anime than in the manga..there was the sense of rush and the souls returning to their bodies made perfect sense... pride's misery was better depicted in the anime , tan in the manga

First thought after the end: WAH it was so fast! But I liked it, I can't wait for subs.T___T Just one thing disappointed me, and it's Father's voice. I thought they'd have put some damned hot sexy younger voice, but... Oh well, never mind. He's so sexy. *cries*
And, oh, I loved Bradley face while he was dying. T__T He was somehow... sweet.

Not my favorite episode, it seems kind of rushed, and they cut one of my favorite joke: http://www.onemanga.com/Full_Metal_Alchemist/106/027/ Father's voice was odd: I thought they would used young Hohein's voice. I always had some problem with the final Pride-fight: Edward entering Pride in his mind? That doesn't sound like FMA. But Kimblee's appearance was nice.

There's nothing odd about Father having his usual voice. Well, maybe he should sound younger. But if he had another VA - like young Hoho's - THAT would be odd. He didn't get Hohenheim's voice when he originally got his body. He kept his own. So there's no reason for him to have a voice change now. Father's "soul" has it's own voice, just like Al's and Greed's, and apparantly this fact is not affected by whose vocal cords in use.

This episode had a LOT of content in it, and I can really feel the 64 episode limit taking its toll. However, I think that someone who hadn't read the manga would like the episode just fine. I think they're rushing it here, so the final battle can have 3 episodes. I think it'll be okay.
