I loved the new opening it was like literally fanservice to the manga fans. There were scenes from:

Chapter 39, 41, 44-45, 53, and so forth.

The opening works for me, though I have to admit something about the song seems a bit... off but I can forgive that for the absolutely stunning visuals the opening has. I love the fact that Feury, Havoc, Falman and Breda actually get to prominent in opening now. I don't recall them being in any of the original series apart from Undo where they were literally poking their heads in through the curtains to be seen.

I love the action sequences here as well, especially the scene at the end that shows Bradley fighting Lin. That looked absolutely awesome and beautifully animated.

Also loved the foreshadowing here, but mostly I love that they showed Ed throwing Envy into a pillar and the impact absolutely demolishing it. Good indication of things to come, though it's ironic considering the first opening had him and Ed fighting on a structure that only collapsed once Gluttony got involve...

Only thing I have to admit I didn't like, the weird slow motion bit with Scar and Ed at the end. I think it's Scar's face, it's just contorted and weird.

Overall, another great opening for FMA:B in my opinion. So it's already got a better track record than teh original series opening wise (I hated Melissa)

Yeah I also loved the prominence that they gave to Roy's subordinates in the opening because I feel with the exception of Havoc and Riza they have been cutting their scenes. So it was nice to see Falman, Breda and Fuery getting some love. smile.gif

Yeah Breda, Falman and Feury usually get the shaft in everything, and even in the original series Havoc was shafted to one side along with them. It's gonna be good to see them all being something other than comic relief.

Aaaand to keep this on topic, did anyone else think the last scene of the opening was alot like the last scene from Undo in the original series? All that was missing was a bird flying off of Al. Not complaining as Undo was my favourite of the original openings. Just surprised me a bit.

Agree! Maybe these scenes are taken directly from the episodes? It's possible?
I think that this opening is great; music is catchy and pictures are well-chosen. I preferred the first but this one still rules.
I don't like very much the ending. Yeah, it's nice, but the first was a masterpiece!

After seeing the screenshots, I'm a little surprised that the OP shows Gluttony in his true form. People might think it's just another homunculus, instead of him, but still. It's a spoiler. lol

Agreed, if only because the openings so far have actually contained scenes that were relevant to the plot. Though ironically the worst offender of the original openings for having stuff in it that never happened was probably Undo looking back. Ed and Al fighting giant serpants? Scar leading the Ishbalans across the desert like some kind of angry moses? Ed and Al fighting Greed and the Chimera in a ruined town? Not that it wasn't cool but it was all a bit odd.

That's what strikes me about this opening the most, everything that happens in the opening is relevent in one way or another. Though to be fair, this probably comes out of the fact they've got alot more material this time around.

I loved how that one part that showed all of Mustang's crew resembled the cover for volume 9.

Whoa, that opening was one giant bit of manga fanservice on a stick. XD

My favorite part was in the very beginning, with Ed and Al in black and white, and how it goes into Al's blood seal and Ed's automail and stuff.
I like how the opening sort of characterized Mustang's staff, too...with the hot dog sticking out of Breda's mouth, lmao. XD;
