Though I didn't like the last part, when Alphonse actually panted...)
I really enjoyed this episode a lot. In fact I think since the Nina episode it might be the best adapted episode. But having Al pant was a pretty stupid mistake.
Anyways the one thing I liked that they moved the Roy/Hughes phone conversation to this episode instead of next (which is how it was in the manga). This way they can give more time to Al's issues without it feeling rushed and they put Hughes in another episode. A very smart move if you ask me.

So has anyone found a subbed version yet? I'm happy with my raw but it's even more enjoyable when I actually know what the characters are saying. (Though I guess it's not that big of a deal since the dialogue should match up with the manga anyway).

Yay, subs are out! Watching right now, will comment later. XD
Fantastic episode! The pacing was just right. Action scenes are very nicely animated and fluid. My favorite parts would be Maes telling Roy to find a wife and Barry taunting Al with the possibility of being an armor doll instead of a human with a soul and memories. That was particularly awesome and I cant wait to see the tension next episode. Envy's new VA is amazing. I love hearing my insane Dilandau mixed with some new elements for a wacky, Envy sound.

I like how this episode wasn't dragged out for several episodes like in the first series.
The homunculi and Ed finally meet.
Maria Ross and Denny Brosh were awesome as always. Loved their facial expressions when they discovered Ed and Al were gone. Better enjoy these two now because soon they wont be appearing in the series for a long time.

This episode was sooo good! I had no complaints, except that they didn't keep the "I kill, therefore I am!!" line from the manga. I love that line! Al's panting at the end didn't bother me much, cuz I know I've heard him gasp. Rie-sama did such an excellent job! Everyone did! Even Envy's voice actress! And , we got to see (some of) Kimblee! HE should be making an offical appearance very soon. As for the next episode, I can't wait for it! We should be some great performance's from Romi-sama and Rie-sama. I have to agree with some of you guys, that the "Certain event" should happen episode 10. Epsiode 11 at the lasest. Oh, and the "Hurry up and get married" line was awesome. So funny! Epecially Mustang's reaction. XD

I enjoyed the latest episode. The action was good, the animation was smooth, the music wasn't bad, and the voice acting was strong, too. I did miss the dark ambiance and desperation that was present in the first series adaptation of this material, but I didn't have much of a problem with them getting this arc over with as quickly as the manga did. They really managed to get a lot done in one episode and it didn't feel too sped up, either.
Minami Takayama really is an excellent fit for Envy. He was really starting to sound like Dilandau in this episode, which is good, since both characters are utterly demented.
There are a few things I'm getting pretty sick of, though. One is how Havoc's face always looks way, way too long. I mean, comically long. It's totally off-model, not resembling either his first anime or manga version. I know they only seem to show him in a little short scenes, but really, Havoc deserves better.
Another is the "previously on" segments. Those have to go, too. This and the narration over it make the show seem generic, and FMA is anything but that.
Fullmetal Alchemist is over! Thank you, Hiromu Arakawa! ;_;

What an amazing episode! (after i watched it...i just wanted to watch it all over again XD)
The animation was stunning and the fight scenes were well animated and so exciting! There was a lot of intensity with Ed Vs Slicer. It was so fun to watch!
Barry was awesome, His little back story was so creepy...Also his new voice is great! I'm so glad he has a bigger part in this series, i love him in the Manga ^w^
The voice acting was really well done, Al in particular sounded really mature and strong (i noticed the panting too at the end of the episode on my second viewing but i don't really mind it...i hardly noticed it when i was watching the live (laggy keyhole) stream XD). Ed sounded great as always, Paku-san is amazing!. I'm really liking Lusts new VA! She has a great mix of evil and sexy XD Hehe, I like it. Love the new Envy, the voice is so fitting! ^w^
Wow, the Homunclus make such an awesome entrance (i loved the music here)! Especially with Lust's shooting fingers XD (i wasn't sure what to call them lol). Seeing Envy stab the 2nd Slicer brother's blood seal continuously...that was brutal.
I'm looking forward to episode 9, it's gonna be great to see Winry again!
Watched the subbed version. All in all, this was a really good, satisfying episode. The pacing was good; the animation was perfect, especially in the Ed-Slicer fight: that was awesome. I hope the rest of the series will have the same quality like this episode.
Voice acting was brilliant again. Paku Romi and Kugimiya Rie did an awesome job again. I liked Barry’s and Slicer’s voice, too. I’m glad that Barry will have more role in the new anime later. As for Envy’s voice: it totally suits him.
The appearance of Lust and Envy: Envy killing Slicer and Ed’s facial expression was scary at all. And poor Ed: he got called runt again.
Loved the Roy-Hughes conversation, with Hughes advising Roy to get married. But I missed Riza from that scene.
