Looked really good. Didn't understand what they were saying, but none-the-less looked really good, can't wait for the sub.
Given the military are my favorite group of characters from the manga/anime I'm really pumped up to see the sub version and next weeks episode.
One little observation, based upon the preview for ep. 19 it looks like they kept the whole Riza going berzerk and then breaking down part (not that I thought they'd cut it, but I'm really glad they kept it). The first bit of the preview is when she's unloading into lust (my guess). The last bit you see her starting to cry.
Tomorrow's forecast: An expected high of 68 degrees, partly cloudy, with a chance of DOOM!

Meh I wish they kept more of the Breda scenes during the Ross conversation, 2 ones I liked were missing and it stole personality from the scene as usual.
Where the heck was Ranfan at the end too? I wonder if they'll even keep the scenes with her and Ling in the next ep?
Preview looks good anyway but I know the episode is GOING to have omissions and I just seriously hope none of them are unforgivable ones. There is VERY little I could forgive them for cutting from the next episode.

Noes! I was so caught up in the rest of this episode that I forgot that Ran Fan was missing ;_; I really hope they keep the part where she fights Envy, although if they put that in next episode they're going to have a lot of ground to cover. I'll just try to think positive!! Because if they cut out the Ling and Ran Fan parts I will be exceedingly sad =(
But otherwise I liked what I saw from the RAW. The animation is looking sooooo much better - thank goodness! And I liked the Havoc - Falman - Barry - Riza part, I thought that was done well ^^ I loved the scene where Barry calls Roy haha.

I WATCHED THE PREVIEW PROBABLY TWENTY FRICKIN' TIMES, I EXAGGERATE NOT.
OH EM GEE, NXT WEEK WILL BE EPIC!!!1ONE!!11one!!1
I thought this episode was pretty good, but DAMN did it go by fast! This will probably be in the next episode, but I was kinda waiting for the 'Elizabeth!!!' from Mustang. Well, that just adds to the Royai overload next week. Along with the game, new volume, and possible appearance in Ch.98. OMG YAY.

Mmk, just saw the subbed (I tortured myself waiting for it, buz I'm not a raw person...) and it's really pretty good. I loved how they got Riza's eyes right (finally!) and Havoc was great, though I was hoping they kept the "fashion statement" line. Glad they kept Roy and Riza's telephone conversation and I absolutely cannot wait for next week's episode. The preview was amazing. They made it seem as if Riza was going die... especially those who haven't read the manga, the preview kinda makes it seem that way. Ooh, isn't that nice... I will be counting the hours till next Sunday.
My teeny-weeny-complaints-that-I-can-actually-live-with (meaning please don't attack me for my opinion... it's just an opinion after all: -Revealing Maria Ross was too early IMO, especially, like someone else said, since it was right on the heels of the last one. -I was also kinda hoping the kept the Ed in Xerxes scene stuck with that scene and then moving over to what's happening with our military dogs, instead of switching back and foth between them, but still -Can't say anything about the quality of the subs though.

I guess the lack of impact as in manga can be guessed due to arrangement. xerxes:actually quite nice.ed & co is drawn quite well.and i like where they put the music in xerxes-not greece music,ut still fine for me(i know they played it b4).Xerxes is grand and i think it has the feel in the manga. I'm dissapointed at 2 breda scene is cut out.i like where in the manga bread holds a gun at his back,and where he pulls edward hair.
Barry & co. I like the Bunny jokes,but it's cut out(again-but i'm not that pissed off in here).i hope ranfan will be included next scene. The fights between barry & co and Barry -chimera are quite exciting,ruin a bit perhaps by the scene jump suddenly to somewhere else. EDIT:I think I can comment on Bones,up till now,have not screwed up on full-fight scenes.in fact i think they done a great job for the fight.and hawkeye's shot is awesome.
Code Scene on a personal level however i am glad they did not delete the scene.i comment on this later.
Music overall the music are fine.at least one(or two cues) are out.it brings out emotion level especially at maria ross farewell.
Voice I think maria ross seiyuu d...maybe she sounds too soft..not like someone who escapes from Ameritis,leaving everything behind...i am not sure but she doesnt sounds quite like for me --on maria ross case to xerxes(ie exclude the 5th laboratory arc)
Ed,ling's seiyuu sounds good as usual.. preview I am not sure if they toggled the sequence...and lol,i didnt think beuaty means lust...still i'm glad u point that out @ hand made city
some dissapointment-probably i expect too much,and i put the volume quite low.cant hear shinichiro miki speaking in code.
