Considering how boring this part of the story is, they did a decent job, the funny parts caught my attention. I still find the art beautiful, but now I'm starting to get pissed at how the characters (especially Ed) are portrayed sometimes. It seems they don't keep track of their proportions very well: in this episode, we have Ed's ultra-long hair in the pestering-Winry scene, and a little before that, when he wakes up, his eyes are almost as huge as Hawkeye's. Please, animators, try not to slack off too much...
I'm pretty sure next episode we will see a bit of the Marcoh-Lust confrontation. It may not look like it, but it's pretty relevant: Lust still has to make Marcoh spit off the location of the files to her. Not so sure they can just assume it all happened without confusing new viewers.
About Winry... well... never liked her, but I like this initial, ruthless appearance of her. (It's a shame it's not gonna last for long, though) Loved the new colors of her clothes; yes, women not always have to wear pink. And, is it just me, or does her new voice sound kind of familiar? I can't say for sure, but I kept hearing Kagami (from Lucky Star) every time she spoke. A little high, yes, but not so annoying, IMO.
- Goodbye, FMA, please help me find the strength to move on and get stronger, too!! ^^ - If I don't answer your reply, it could be because: 1) I'm too busy to turn on my computer. 2) I got shy, and didn't come back to the discussion. 3) I hate you, and I'd rather ignore you. 4) Your point got me speechless, congratz!
