On the way to Central, Scar and Yoki run into a mysterious girl, May, who uses "rentanjitsu," a strange form of Alchemy from the East. She tells them that she is from Xing, a large country East of Amestris, and she is here to find the way to achieve immortality. Meantime, Ed and Al are in Rush Valley to get Ed's automail repaired. There, they run into a boy collapsed of hunger in the street. His name is Lin, and he is also from Xing, and he tells Ed that he is here in search of Philosopher's Stone. Lin asks Ed if he knows anything about the Stone, and Ed tells Lin that "he knows nothing about it." Just then, two shadowy figures approach from behind, and Ed and Al felt the blades pointing at them in their back...

I'm in despair! Or am I really?
Probably...as a Royai fangirl I'm in it since there was no jealous!Roy and they cut Barry scene T_T
But what with the whole episode?
They cut Mei's Youswell introduction, but hey, there was at least amazing!Ed in her dreams and few other funny things from manga. Lin and RanFun made episode for me, I think every part with them was great biggrin.gif About OP/ED no good parts with Roy n Riza! OBJECTION! they were good...I mean OP, when you look at it you can see many spoilers from upcoming fights (Lust fight!)
Maybe I'll say something more with subs or at least HQ raw since KeyHoleTV is a b!tch -.-

My initial impressions of the episode:

- Scar's fight with the Silver Alchemist was pretty rad.
- Wow, Mei just sort of appeared, without any real intro. And she's already having daydreams about Edward, without ever having heard about him, I think. Hm.
- Mamoru Miyano is a fine Ling. Probably a better VA than the character deserves. I did enjoy seeing him enjoy Ed's hospitality, or rather, force it.
- A little geography lesson really made the world expand.
- The battle was fairly well done.
- Barry's meeting with Riza, Roy, and Falman was sped up, but it wasn't bad, either.
- I love Ranfan's VA. Sure, it's the kid Wrath from the first series, but it fits so well for her!
- The pace is pretty dizzying at times, but they did keep a lot of the humor. Mr. Garfiel!
- Next episode has Ed running down a certain alley!

Overall, a fairy decent episode, overlooking my dislike for the Xingese characters.

I love the new OP credit sequence, but not so much the song. The new ED isn't as good as the first one.

Nah you're not the only one. I was looking forward for that too... anyways.
And I need to see the OP again, I was squeeing as soon as I saw the Roy-tachi so... lol, and yes, there's significant foreshadowing in it *nods*

EDIT:
Found screenshots for who's interested:

I spy lots of manga panels in the screenshots! I'm glad they kept Mei's imaginary Ed laugh.gif And RanFan looks adorable :3

OT:
@Tombow: Small typo, it says "Spoilers for the first 16 episodes" even though we're only up to episode 15 tongue.gif

Screen shots look good!! ^^
Also, I see Xing is a BIG country and Amestris is so tiny according to this map.


OT:
Oops, thank you, kkg22104!! Corrected. biggrin.gif

Amestris sure is landlocked. And, as usual, it looks like a cookie with a bite in it.

(All Father wants is the cookie!)

Only going by the screenshots so far I think I'm going to enjoy this episode, seeing a lot of scenes taken right from the manga (though I can imagine there are many missed out as well). Rather excited by the preview screenshots too...

Am I so childish or do I really dislike Ling just because he was mean to Ed in the beginning? biggrin.gif Probably so.

Scar vs. Silver Alchemist battle was great, it got aproximately the same length as in manga, you had to be amazed at what trick the old grandpa comes with next.
No complaints about Mei (OK, I miss her meeting Yoki a little), her adoration of Edward is fun to watch and am I wrong or did Scar try to kill Xiao Mei?! Looked like it.
What I probably will sulk about for some time is not enough Barry. He is so genuine in his desire to chop things up that I can't help but want to see more ("Can I chop you?" "No." "Can I chop them?" "No!") and I MISSED him decribing Lust and Envy *weeps*
The rest of the episode was good, fight scenes are usually done well in Brotherhood.


Can't tell so much about VA untill I see this ep in better quality...

Loved Mr. Garfiel!

Yes you are wrong but that's not your fault because they purposely tried to make it look like that but knowing Scar he wasn't trying to hurt Xiao Mei he was trying to pet Xiao Mei

Btw does anyone remember if Xiao Mei is a boy or a girl?

Anyways as for the episode itself I really enjoyed most of it but I can't give it a perfect score because I was somewhat disappointed in the introduction of Mei and the Barry the Chopper scene. The rest of the episode was great though and just as fun as the related manga chapters.

As for the new voices I really loved Ran Fan, Ling and Fu, but Mei's was a little grating to me (it does fit her character but I wish they chose someone whose voice was not as high pitched).

Anyone notice in Mei's daydreaming of Ed looking all bishounen, he looks alot like Vega from street fighter. All he needs it he claws and rose.

Xiao Mei is a girl wink.gif Do your spoil really needs to be spoiled though? It is spoiler, but spoiler that has more to do with databooks and bonus material than actual manga material, and it is not really important for the plot...

I liked it personaly, especially the bit when they are in the cart and May is sleeping while Scar and Yoki are talking.

About Yoki, is it me or is the lack of proper introduction makes him just a little bit more likeable than in the manga (although I like him in the manga. The guy proves useful at the most unexpected moments laugh.gif ).
