My initial thoughts:
- More of volume 11's overexplaining- WE GET IT! SHUT UP! - Roy's new VA continues to shine - I've grown accostumed to the "Fullmetal Alchemist!" guy. It only took twenty one episodes. - How are they explaining how the Xingese can sense the homunculi if they've never encountered them in this series (thanks to scene cutting)? - Maybe it's just the bad streaming from Keyhole, but did they just SKIP THE SCENE WHERE ENVY COMES TO GET DR. MARCOH?! - LOVE the scenes with Edward going around fixing things to attract attention! Hilarious. - Scar, you don't have to wear that hood. They know who you are. It's a poor disguise. - I still find it hard to believe that Scar is SUCH a difficult opponent. I mean, really. Fine, we get it, he can deconstruct things. But he shouldn't be half as fast as he's protrayed. The guy is like the Flash. - Love Mustang pretending to be several people on the radio. - Henry Douglas is starting to LOOK like Henry Douglas! AMAZING! - Oof, Gluttony, that kick from Ranfan had to hurt. - Episode ends RIGHT at the end of volume 11. Thank god that volume is over being adapted.
Fullmetal Alchemist is over! Thank you, Hiromu Arakawa! ;_;
I don't care what anyone said, I glad they kept the manga humor in this. The episode looks sweet and I glad they kept the Denny scene of Armstrong remember Mario Ross. Looks like they kept Roy chewing out Riza for some Royai sweetness. Can't wait for the next.
for some reason, I can picture the dialogue of Ed getting closer to Roy. Ed = Comon Roy, lets keep the yaoi fangirls happy. Roy = Get away from me you freak or I'll burn you! Wow did I make my own cap summary?

They kept most of the funny scenes that I could be bothered remembering, so I'm happy. I'm not sure how they'll explain Marcoh's disappearance though...? In a way it adds suspense, but it's also clear why they skipped it.

After taking out all the humour from the scenes with Hoho I'm glad to see screencaps of comedy moments...even better that there are so many straight from the manga. The action also looks really quite impressive.
This is only screencaps review though, I realise they have skipped Marcoh and altered things again.

Lust was waiting for Dr. Marcoh when he got back to his house, after he had given the note to Fullmetal. It was a very short bit in ep. 6 I believe.
As for the episode as a whole, it looked awesome. It looks like they kept all the military interaction which is great. Overall I think the episodes starting from ep. 17 have been really good. Its not the manga, but it follows the manga close enough and for all intents and purposes is the manga animated. These parts are definitely my favorite part of the series.
Oh and Wrath does not mess around, I remain curious as to how anyone will actually take him out.

This episode is about a lot of talk and not much of action, but thanks to that I feel the pace is starting to be slower and thus satisfactory. I love Ed's fox face (or Suneo-look-alike ) when he made fun of Roy.

For a second I thought they were going to bring in Ranfan's awesomeness which they cut out earlier. I was wrong. Oh well. The animation itself looked much better in this ep than ep 20 - what was wrong with Ed's face??
