Will there be FMA:B this Sunday? The most countries are celebrating easter, but I doubt the Japanese do. But I want to be sure. Is there any or isn't there?
@black~hayate - Yes, as A Pierrot's Aria has posted above, they have a regularly scheduled airing of FMA:B episode this Sunday. And, no, Easter is not a national holiday in Japan, nor most of people there celebrate Easter, as far as I know. ^^ (the population of people who are of Christian faith there is much smaller than those in the North/South American and European countries, I think. ^^)

Maybe she has a script for it. You know, she must have written the story somewhere on paper.
Was that harsh sarcasm? Or did I misread...
I don't know how it would turn out if they have been animating the last couple of episodes according to script/storyboards. It might be a good thing, it could spur - or force out - some creativeness from Bones. But that might just as well go all kinds of wrong, and end up being a horrible way of doing unjustice to the awesomeness that these last few manga chapters have been.
On anotehr note, I'm really looking forward to seeing and hearing the new OP and ED. I don't feel any of the ones following Again and Uso have lived up to the standards set by them. All of the openings have been pretty catchy, but not much more. As for the endings, the only one I really like is Let it out. The third one sucked, and the fourth is alright. But not great. I hope these last themes of the show will be just that, great. I'm happy that it's SID doing one of the songs again, since I loved Uso, even though that's of course no guarantee. But it does get your hopes up. But I guess I shouldn't set my expectations too high, that's a good way of getting dissapointed.

I wouldn't look at the whole situation so gloomily. We assume manga's got (or will get) 108 chapters, of which 108 we assume (again) to be epilogue. So, there's the possibility that episode 62 will be based on chapter 106 solely, which is already drawn by Arakawa-sensei right now (end of March). It may not be inked and stuff but it's very likely there's already a more or less final version of the chapter. /end of speculation

Was looking back at my future episode prection thing from late February again and I see this is where I go wrong now.
I was right in thinking Episode 51 would rearrange a bunch of scenes from the manga, but I wasn't expecting them them to get as far as having scenes from chapter 92 as well. Looks like next week is going to cover scenes from 91, 92 and 93 too, the preview shows scenes nearly halfway through chapter 93.
So looks like Episode 53 is going to cover just over half of 93 and then all (or most) of 94.
I hope it works out as awesome as the manga though because the most sensible way for them to do it would be for the cliffhanger of 93 to be pre-eyecatch and then the action scenes of 94 to be post eyecatch, but that means all of Roy vs Envy will be condensed into a 9 minute period, which isn't as long as I would've liked. It also means the anime only people will have practically no "build up" to the fight like manga readers had with the cliffhanger, which is a shame.
Oh well, I guess it's still a ton longer than Mustang vs Lust.
