Episode 12: "One is All, All is One"
Ed and Al arrive at the town of Dublith, and reunite with their alchemy master, Izumi whom they have not seen for a long time. Izumi tells them some news about their father, Hohenheim. That night, Ed remembers about the time they met Izumi first time. That was not long after their mother's death, and to farther their skills in alchemy, Ed and Al asked Isumi to take them as her alchemy apprentices. In return, Izumi sent the Two to spend a month on an isolated and an uninhabited island and ordered them to find the answer to this riddle: "One is for All, and All is for One." ...

Reminder:
For those who had seen the first series of FMA anime, and/or read FMA manga, you can probably guess what's coming next. HOWEVER, please remember that there are some who have not seen FMA-1, nor read managa. I know many of you would like to talk about "the upcoming episode." If you do, please USE PROPER SPOILERS, so that those who have no idea for the future story would not be spoiled. THANK YOU!!! smile.gif

Judging by the fact that I didn't know Mason's name until I read through this thread... nah, not bothered. We got cannibal!Ed instead (why not Al, I wonder?.. is he too civilized?).

I nearly died of cute, with all the instances of chibi Ed and Al! They're just adorable. I totally see why Izumi's heart melted.

I got annoyed by the angst in this episode, but then I've rarely been happy with the way angst has been portrayed here. I mean, Ed nearly flying into hysterics at the mere mention of Hoho papa? Yeah, daddy issues, I get it, but he sounded like he was about to *cry*. And the whole thing with Izumi hug I felt was - omg - more poignant in FMA1, somehow. I mean, it was a good scene overall, with the "teacher is as bad as the students" and her story, but that hug and the apologies were just over angsty and too melodramatic, as for me.

Izumi is made of so, so much win. I hope they keep her manga lines in the next episode, it's one of the rare relatively early manga bits that I remember very clearly, because Izumi = awesome.

And don't Sig and Armstrong meet in the nearest future? They must keep those scenes. THEY MUST.

Heh, I don't know.. for some reason I've loved how they do the angst here. It's a good opposite for all the 'coolness' that's usually on. It makes even Ed and Al look more 'vulnerable', in a way.

I've never been much into characters who just get to be cool all the time, never crying, etc. Making them angst makes things more natural. XD

Heck, I'd even love to see Ed share a few tears at least once. Apart from the childhood part when he resurrected Al. *shot*


(and as I said, I nearly cried when the hugging scene came on. But then again, I'm always like that with movies. Can't help my over-sensitiviness. 8''DD )

I'm not into characters who're cool all the time, either, but that's why I said that the angst *here* doesn't work for me =) Maybe there was as much angst in the manga, but it was portrayed more gracefully... It could very well be just the animation style - you know, exaggerated everything, crazy happiness and then overflowing angst. I don't watch a lot of anime, so I might be missing the subtleties of conveying powerful emotion through this medium. *shrug* Still don't like what they're doing to my dear Ed, though =)
