I have to say I really really REALLLLLLY missed Vic as Ed. Don't get me wrong, Romi rocks it, seriously. The girl has got it goin' on when it comes to Ed, but to hear it done in my own language, Vic still knows how to work it. As somebody said prior to my post, I seriously cannot imagine anybody else voicing Ed when it comes to both English AND Romi for Japanese, if you ask me. Anyway, episode was still very fast paced. I was little disappointed that they cut the intro short. I mean what was up with that? o.O I guess they had to to fit it properly into the Adult Swim timeframe maybe? I dunno. Anyway, Maxy did a pretty good job as Al. There were a few times she sounded a bit...off, but really a few times I had to remind myself that it wasn't Aaron voicing him this time around. Elysia's voice didn't really bother me. I guess it's because small children don't really bother me considering I'm a mother of a little one myself. Travis still rocked it as Roy. I loved it. I can't say anything about Riza yet considering she only had one line. We'll wait and see Anyway, awesome watching this in English. Can't wait to see the next one!

Okay, looking back, I still don't understand the ending of this episode. So the Homunculi gave Isaac a small Philosopher's Stone and put him up to some task? What did they expect him to do? Were the giant ice walls helping or hurting their plan? We know the circles got ol' bright-face's attention... 43 episodes later, I'm still confused on this! (I guess if you have any answers, then, you'll have to spoiler-tag them, since this is the episode 1 thread.)

If I'm not wrong, Isaac was supposed to be one of the candidates for human sacrifice and he used to be an Ishval veteran. So it's natural he also got a philosopher's stone because they were given to them during the war.
Although one thing bothers me, a lot. How can Isaac move after using his blood for like...idk a lot of things, he should've lost a lot and barely move D:

I did find the first episode really slow and all at the same time unreasonably fast, they introduced characters then before you knew a lot about them moved off the topic. I agree witht he others when seeing isaac as a lame villan though.
