I don`t know if someone knows me but whatever...
I just wanted to say how awesome the series is going and despite it is closing to the end I will apreciate it as much as those lst few buckets of gas one may grasp once petrol is over.
Anyway father`s true form or maybe the first of many (Final Fantasy VIII anyone?) is awesome! This is the sort of freakin aberration the big bosses always turn out to be near the end of the game and that is always the best part.
I mean it was pretty odd Hoho beating up Father like he had total control then BAM time for the real show.
Yesterday I had a dream before seeing this chapter that if Wrath was alive then Greed would end up fighting him.
At first I thought he would face Sloth but since Izumi popped up with her awesomeness I was wondering what then?
Well it kinda turned out my vision was right and Wrath and Greed will have their awesome fight.
The best of it is the fact both fighters are made through a very similar process, Ling had a Philosofer stone injected into him and so does Bradley. That makes room for those huge psychological confrontations we die to see in any series.
Ability wise they are kind of matched since Greeling is virtually indistructible but Bradley can predict movements ahead of their execution which makes him arguably unscachable.
This is up to Arakawa`s madness to put things up.
I don`t care if neither Ed or Al showed up because the whole chapter was already full of awesomeness and ya don`t need POP brothers to hype up sales when things are going well.
As for Envy`s death two chapters ago I can`t complain since it was a damn way out for that SICKO we all loved. He lossed most of his power when Marco drained his stone (arguably way beyond what he could regain absorbing zombies) and nuff said avenger Mustang is unstoppable. Moreover blasting his own stone and giving everyone a huge "..CK YOU ALL" was a nice farewell sign.
As for Sloth I can say it couldn`t have gone anyway different, he wasn`t very intelligent or at least was too lazy to try any strategy and holding up against the armstrong brothers, even making them need help from those poor canon fodder soldiers, was something remarkable. But the Curtis are well... YEAH! BABY! YEAH! In other words he was doomed.
Now what really bugs me is what Pride is up to. Alphonse made a damn rush out of there but that sneaky ice cold killa mentioned something which make you thing no matter what the heroes do it will always end up into a "CURSE YOU VILLAIN CURSE YOU".

Right now, I'm just kinda like.... get to the end already. I don't know, I feel like somehow they're stalling. I mean, I thought it was close to the end, like, 10 chapters ago. I don't want this to be another Naruto or Bleach or Dragon Ball... or any other never ending manga. I hate to say it, but I want a final battle already. P.S. I want more Winry.

Nice episode it was. The war is just beginning, Hohenheim gets awesome and (I hope that) it isn't going to end soon. But one thing: where is Ed? I really like all those new chapters, but I'd like to know how the story of Elric brothers will develop. Hiromu, don't forget about the brothers
