Yoki appeared out of nowhere, we don't know why he was with Ishbalans, who he was earlier (we know that he wasn't a beggar always since he said "I'll rise up once again", but nothing more), why would he hate Ed... If creators of this anime assume that everybody knows everything why do they make this anyway? It's done so poorly that I can't believe it can get better when Ling appears. For 13 episodes it's been either bad, very bad or pathetic. 13 episodes in a row it has been annoying me. So far I'm watching it only to see my favorite manga characters in motion but if it keeps up I might drop this series. I was so excited when I first heard there would be "proper" adaptation and I've met with such disappointment... Al was portrayed as duffer, he was disabled in like 5 seconds. Meisun appeared suddenly, Izumi came out of nowhere, they didn't show her vomiting at the crocodile, Shig with babes, etc. etc. The dialog in 15th minute didn't make much sense to me. Maybe the subs were inaccurate:
Ed: A tatoo of Uroboros. Greed: That's right. It would have been convenient if we could finish this with just Armor-kun here but wahtever. E: If you're in cahoots with that lot then ask me directly. G: "That lot?" E: The guys who have that tatoo were in the 5th Laboratory. We met some guys who had affixed their souls to armor there. G: Is that so? Well, that was a bit of a special case. I can't really do that.
To be honest all dialogs in this episode were messy. Ed knew from Bidoh why Al was kidnapped, so he shouldn't have asked Greed whether he was in cahoot with these homonculi. If Greed were then he wouldn't need Al, he could ask Lust about armors. It made Ed look stupid. Overall, too much compression in one episode and too many stupid changes. It was worse than poor.
