This episode was really nice, but I didn't like that they've strongly suggested turning Amestris citizens into philospher's stone so fast (it wasn't in manga before Xerxes retrospection and Briggs story, was it?).

Too bad they couldn't cover the manga in as much detail before, instead opting to butcher the Greed arc and omitting the 1st Xingese/Homunculus fight. But they covered up for the last one decently, so I guess it wasn't a huge loss.
Am I the only one who didn't particularly care or notice that they cut the Ling n' Ran Fan vs. Homunculi fight? .____. All I really remember from that scene was Ran Fan stabbing Gluttony...or Envy...somebody...in the eye. And Pride's appearance, but I like how they handled Pride's scene in this episode.
The Greed arc is unforgivable, though.
What color is Envy's true form, by the way?
Dog Envy looks kind of like a Scooby Doo from hell, no?
Lmao, Scooby Doo.
TBH the first Xing/Homunculus fight wasn't THAT important, but it made things move along more smoothly. Mostly I just miss them introducing Pride a bit earlier, plus Envy as a dog (which they seemed to try to compensate this episode instead of a horse.) But someone said it'd be weird to see a horse spying in the bushes, rofl, so it's understandable.
I think Envy's true form is going to be green? His little shrimp form is colored green in the manga, so I guess it'd be a darkish green? I always imagined him just being greyish though...

Really? I always imagined him in fleshy tones, like pinks and reds and pale oranges. I can sort of imagine him green... but I dunno, I always thought because of how and what he's made of, it would be more bloody colours.

Lol, I never thought about that word association but it's true!

i may draw your attention to thiscover you can see a small part of envy and it is green
Oh you're right, I totally forgot that Envy was in that cover. Mh... I can't say that I like Envy's true form in green (simply, it looks strange to me) but maybe I'll change my mind when I'll see it animated.

I don't know, but I've always imagined that form to be brown or grey!
The saying goes "la envidia es verde" ("envy is green"), hehehe. Anyway, Arakawa has already painted the very true form of Envy in green, so...
Heh, never thought of that association either. Thanks for pointing that out, now Envy's greenish colours make more sense.

yah i think he'll be green, i allways imagined him as dull greeny grey, also if i may draw your attention to thiscover you can see a small part of envy and it is green
Ah yeah, I think I saw a cover somewhere before with him on it, that looks familiar. Nice find.
Anyway, my only concern is they better animoot him well. Cos his true form is pretty detailed with scales and those faces all over it, to name a few. So I hope they draw it well, but from the preview next week's ep. looks good quality too.

I never imagine colors when I read the manga, I always just look at the shape and details. I wonder why I never imagined what Envy's color was.
I am very much looking forward to seeing the next episode. The pacing's gonna change a little and things will move a little swifter, I believe, but I love the fact that a lot of the interesting stories are starting to pick up. Seeing everything fall into place, and seeing how the characters change will be very cool.

I just watched it on Adult Swim and it was pretty good. Seemed extremly short for some reason, though.
My fandom has gotten to the point of just sad. My entire week revolves around waiting for Saterday nights for Brotherhood to come on. While most people have lifes on Saterday nights, I have anime. Oh the joys of dorky obsessions. XD

I really like Pride's voice. It sounds more like I imagined it would when I read the manga. Not that his Japanese voice isn't great, but it seems a little too... deep? Then again that adds to his creepiness.
