While Uso was quirky and unique, I have to say that my first reaction to LET IT OUT was 'oh great, another generic anime ending' but after having watched it a few times, it's starting to grow on me. I think at this point in the series, it's a bit out of place, but with what's to come, this ending could really, really work well. In fact, I would not be surprised if BONES did their old trick of changing the ending for one episode using this (they did it for both Soul Eater and the original FullMetal Alchemist so is not a complete impossibility)

All in all I find the new ending is a bit of a letdown compared to Uso, but I think that it's still far and away much better than some of the endings we got given in the first series (of which I only really liked the first and last ones, and even then not much)

Weird Side Note - Why the hell is May Chang shown at sunset while every other character is shown during the day? I'm wracking my brains to figure that one out. It's obviously got some kind of meaning but I'm not sure what they're trying to hint at.

Less Weird Side Note - I also like the shot of Winry looking on in awe quickly followed by a shot of Ed's back. Nicely done.

Yes, I agree!!! biggrin.gif I would have probably liked the song in any case (somehow mellow, upbeat and full of deep sentiment all at the same time, plus amazing vocals... I'm going to have to investigate this Miho more!), but having not listened to any previews of the song and seeing it for the first time there with the visuals, my inner fan just screamed, "EDWIN" straight off the bat and I was instantly won over. O_O Most similarly reminds me of "Motherland" by Crystal Kay from the first anime, but this song feels even more promising since I know what's coming from the manga plotline. biggrin.gif

Plus, I understand a lot of the lyrics all by myself. Looking forward to finding a full translation though. smile.gif

I actually really like the new ending as well. Although I like the opening sequence more I think the ending song is quite pretty. And I like how it's quiet and peaceful, contrasting with the more action orientated opening. Because that is sort of my feeling about FMA anyone. It has a lot of great action and exciting parts. But it does have those more quiet moments.

And I really loved how they showed the montage of all the photos and then jumped to Hohenheim. I thought that was very fitting. smile.gif

I have to admit I found that both fitting and rather amusing. I know it's not what they were going for, but it ended up looking to me like they were trying to keep Hohenheim's face a secret. Which is amusing when you consider his face is one of the first things we saw in the first opening.

Yes, I seriously love the new ending too. While Usos one was cute and pretty unique, the new ending is simply beautiful. The windy scenes showing everyone's backs, those photos, a calm song in the backround.. Loved it. smile.gif

I've only listened once, but my reaction is like Jealous Rogo's first one. Just "another generic anime ending". It was okay, but yeah.

The ending looked really boring as well. Compared to all the detail, the laughs and the story in the previous ending...

Plus dark blue skies in the intro and ending just don't look right to me. :\ (Ling's crew and Mei Chan's bit looked okay though)

New ED:
http://video.yahoo.com/watch/6171808/16024783
I think it's a crap, prove me wrong I know you can't
Why crap? I think it's pointless to make a whole ED about Winry ("Motherland" anyone?) with 3 seconds animations with May and RanFun, besides most of these are just pics, not even animations, it looks like some kind of AMV from series "Winry Rockbell's Day". I think better idea would be more screentime for RanFun and May, adding Izumi, Olivier, Riza and making it all-FMA-girls-ED. It's not like I'm Winry hater but I don't really like her (actually I don't like characters that are like her), so yeah, I think only Winry's fangirls/boys will like this xP Ok, I won't just flame this one - I think song isn't bad, I kind of like it. It is similar to LET IT OUT - song is decent but animations are kind of boring, too simple and all~

I agree. Riza, Olivier and Izumi should've been in the ED, too. I don't like that it's all about Winry.

I don't mind Winry, but the ED is boring if it's all pics and not that much animation. :/

Mei and Xiao Mei scene was cute but short, and I felt sorry for RanFan with her sleeve blowing in the wind T_T Bones definitely has something against Riza.

The song's not that bad though.

One of my first thought after seing the new opening was "hey, no Winry?" But that's because the whole ending was just for her! Why? I mean, she's not such a major character, it would have made more sense if it was Hohenheim, or even Trisha. Is there that many Winry fangirl/fanboy? My favorite part was Ranfan and Mei, but even them seem like they were thrown in randomly o_O

i like the new ending song happy.gif tis a bit annoying its all about winry, id have preferred if it had all the girls in in equal amounts or at least winry mei ranfan and RIZA in equal amounts, the xingese characters made the ending awkward and inballanced cause they were just randomly there for a few seconds xD on the plus side, the images were pretty and the phone conv part is foreshadowing (aww edwin <3) i don't mind it though, winry is the central female character to the plot, its ok for her to get an endin to herself and she isnt in the opening at all

The ED doesn't work for me, sorry. :|

Like a lot of people, I don't like that is was just about Winry with Mei and Ranfan (who looked very pretty in her 3-5 seconds, and was the only reason I watched it again) thrown in at the end. Hawkeye and Olivier should have been added as well. :<

I also really didn't like the style of it....just a bunch of still images with some animation at the end.

Ugh....I can't believe we have to watch this for another 11-15 weeks! D:

OT: Contradicting a lot of people, I don't really think that they have a thing against Hawkeye......wait, what the hell, she's the most popular female character in FMA in the poll and probably the most important female character plot-wise and she got 1/2 second in the OP and nothing in the ED! What the hell, BONES? At least the Royai is always pretty epic.

The OP images are dark, they are about war and evil. Would we want that in the End too? I doubt it.

I like Winry, but I'm not keen on the ED credits and I really dislike the song. I think the point of it, if you can argue there is one, is Winry represents "normality". While all others are fighting monsters, the military and their own inner demons, she as a character is currently having a pretty calm time of things.

However, in terms of episode count, she won't be out of the picture living normally for long, so her featuring SO much in the credits is silly. It's not the first time FMA has done it, and certainly not the only anime to have.
