Summary: Denny Brosh reuintes with Maria Ross at the radio station, where Mrs. Bradley wonders about her husband. In Father's lair, May challenges Father and the Elric brothers take on Pride. Father effortlessly repels May, hurting her. Ishbalans set up drawn alchemy arrays around Central. Wrath and Scar exchange blows, with Scar revealing that he has an array on his left arm now, and can use alchemy. Edward tells Alphonse to assist her while he handles Pride on his own. Izumi assists in fighting Father, but Father has had enough and restrains his sacrifices. The eclipse occurs, and Father explains that the world is like a lifeform, and he plans to open its Gate. Suddenly, Greed attacks, but Father makes his way to the true center of his array and activates it. The five sacrifice's Gates repel each other and cause the Gate of the world to open, taking the lives of the people in Amestris as energy to open the Gate. Father calls on the "God" of the Gate and pulls it down to absorb it © Penguintruth, taken with permission from his blog



*WARNING*

Please follow these simple rules;

-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:

- Speed lines!
- Am I only one who thought the dagger thing was too silly?
- Is this some new music?
- I'm convinced that Wrath is Bones' favorite character, because whenever he's around there's a huge animation boost.
- I still wonder when Scar had time to get that other tattoo
- Lol, finger gun... wait, should he be doing silly things like that? He's the ultimate baddie, stop being so... cartoonish!
- ED HEADBUTT!
- OH SHI- GREED!
- I love how the diagram on Father's workbench is the activator. And how nothing else on the workbench is disturbed when he uses it.
- It's the end of the world as we know it, and I feel fi--*URK* *falls over*
- I KNOW, I KNOW I'VE LET YOU DOWN, I'VE BEEN A FOOL TO MYSELF, I THOUGHT THAT I COULD LIVE FOR NO ONE ELSE...
- LOLWUT?
- And there's your cliffhanger!

That last part gave me chills. CHILLS. I will have nightmares for sure.

- Lol, Fatherís gun.
- Great fight scenes again. But itís time for something epic.

All the second half of the chapter gave me the chills... oh my God... I need this in HQ so much.

Plus, the GanGan ad just made matters worse.

Episode 60 is the product you get when tomokatsu nagasaku (eps 53,43,26) and hiroki kanno (main artist , ep54) work together . .

Watching all the coolest characters drop dead isn't very pleasant... I liked the very end though... reminded me of Evangelion SO much.

Wow this episode was insane.

-Surprised/glad they kept in Denny/Maria's reunion. Thought they'd cut it out.
-Enjoyed the addition of May's surprise alkhestry attack on Father, which without knowing he can transmute without moving, she decided to attempt a foot in his face.
-Wrath vs Scar was okay. Scar didn't trip on a puddle of blood. I think this was my least favorite part of this fight anyway.
-Lol, Father is a little crazy with that eye gun.
-Ed vs Pride animation is noticeably similar to their fight in episode 48, but I don't mind.
-Disappointed with Pride's cheek being destroyed rather than his eye. Though, it's unclear if it's just the cheek, since he continues to cover that whole side of his face. We might not get Batman Pride now. (Seriously, that's who that scene reminded me of!)
-Greed's appearance was a shock (well, as best as it can be for knowing it would happen) and the music for it was pretty intense. Overall, the music arrangements this episode is one of the best in the series.
-And the nationwide circle is activated. Seeing everyone "die"...sucked. Father is ginormous! Though I prefer Chapter 104's cliffhanger, this one was nice, too.

As for the preview, episode 61 looks insane as well, if not more so. While I was disappointed with how DBZ it got in Chapter 105, it promises to look pretty amazing next episode.

Not that anybody has yet, but as before BE CAREFUL WITH SPOILERS. Yes many of you know what's coming, but remember to hide it from our members who don't read the manga.

Can we also take care not to spam? If you haven't seen the episode yet but have posted, EDIT THAT POST to add your thoughts once you have seen the episode, rather than make another post. If not, I might simply merge your posts. It's just to keep the forum tidy and easier for people to see other peoples thoughts on the episode.

hilary and Thalogens - I have removed your posts. It is nothing personal! To keep up with the rest of the forum we are trying to avoid ANY 108 spoilers. Thus any images related to 108 are to be links only. Since not everyone will see the adverts in the middle of this episode, not everyone will see these images. Please discuss the cover at the moment at Waiting For The Next Fma Manga Chapter!

I didn't see the episode yet; did they actually do -all- of 104? Based on the randomc screenshots, it looks like they may have cut off before reaching the end of the chapter.

Edit: I just saw the episode, and yeah while it does cut off a little from the end of the chapter, I do think it was extremely well done. Even though they basically put two chapters into this it really didn't feel that rushed. The scene of Father activating the circle and opening the gate was pure High Octane Nightmare Fuel, and I found it all the more shocking- it didn't have the shot of Gracia and Ellicia on the ground but the images of Paninya, the people of Liore, and others made up for it. Exactly how I imagined it would play out; only I wish it covered the last couple of pages of 104 too.

I'll have to watch it again.

This episode was awesome.
Sometimes, things just make more sense animated. I love reading manga and all, but personally I find that it's a little hard to judge how panels flow from one to the other. Maybe it's my lack of imagination. Who knows, but it definitely looked so cool animated.

And creepy... SO creepy.

Was the music for Greed's entrance pulled from Psycho or what?
