Well, now I'm waiting for ep 30 - Ishvar falshabck and Roy/Riza backstory, I hope they won't mess it up - I've got a feeling that BONES has something against Riza so who knows...Still I hope they will do this right! They have to!
My thoughts exactly. But then, the Royai parts were really well done, so... dunno.
"I'm sorry... thank you..." Credit for signature art goes to: http://www.geocities.jp/yn_cq/ for the amazing Royai artwork! And to Michiyo for the avatar coloring!

Ok, I've watched this episode and guess what - booooooooooooring~~! Really, penguitruth was right - this is not even a filler just recaps.
I liked OP, just because of Briggs part and maybe Ishvar, it was average I think, not the best one. ED was just simply crappy, I think this is the worst ED so far.

I just saw the part where what appears Father unmasking Pinako to be Honemheim, freaking symbolism athough I hope capsummeries has the idea of a scoobydoo joke.

lol putting mei and ran fan in the ending for like 2 seconds was pointless XD they shoulda made it an all girl ending and included riza (and possibly olivia and izumi too) and split the time equally between them, would flowed better XD

Ok, I haven't seen the ep yet - though I'm not exactly opposed to a recap ep. Samurai Champloo had one that was pretty good, and this looks to be about on par with that. Not as good as a new episode, of course - but at least it isn't the wholly manufacted storyline a lot of people were fearing, and that's a good thing, right?
I like the new OP well enough, though I still think the first remains my favorite. The clips they used were great (but absolutely spoilerific). GreedLing! Dapper Hat!Kimblee! (whom I just love, I'm so glad we're going to get the awesome urbane Kimblee) Olivia and the Briggs crew (Falman included)!
The ED is... well, forgettable. I'm also wondering why we're basically getting a "day in the life of Winry." I think the first remains my favorite, as well - the Elric brothers sketching out things in colored chalk was just adorable, and when you see them turn around at the end of it, it sort of brings it all home. These two are ultimately what it's all about.
Also, uh... WTF HAPPENED TO WINRY'S BOOBS? Just what kind of work are they doing at Garfiel's shop? I'm just sayin'.
She went from this...
Whuuuut??? Ok, I get that we don't have Lust anymore, but geez!
Mmm, I love that sound. Is there anything that strikes a more beautiful note than the sound of two indomitable wills colliding with each other?

lulz well maybe winry just grew up a bit, im sure it happens in the manga too (allthough i dont think to that degree XD thats a hell of a lot of growth in such a short time period XD haha) Ed gets quite the growth spurt aswell

Okay technically this is about the end credits but it does tie in to the series. The part where Winry is on the phone mirror's a semi important scene from the manga. See these credits are letting us know what Winry's up to currently, but the phone call might be like after Bradley makes it clear to Edward that he knows Winry is his "weakness" and Ed goes off to call her to check she's okay. I say it mirrors it as she's angry and then calm

Garfiel-san may have learned her a few tricks Honestly, I like Winry but I couldn't force myself to watch Motherland, this is far more better than that. No animation.
I was so hoping Hohenheim was shown in the preview only to distract us (like right before 19 we were made to worry about Hawkeye while the actual focus of the ep was on Lust and the one in most danger was Havoc). Oh well. No we know that Pinako was enthusiast drinker and smoker even in her youth and that Hohenhem always keeps a bottle with him.
On the brighter side - waiting for subtitles won't be so hard, we just can switch between wpisodes

I know this isn't concerning the episode itself, but for some reason those flowers shown in the op are really really pretty. I mean, the shape isn't pretty, the colour (plain white?) isn't that amazing either but for some reason they just seem to glow. Huh. Maybe they WERE glowing lol^^
Maybe her boob tube is actually REALLY tight? Maybe she stuffed it so Ed would actually notice that she's a girl, not just his childhood friend XD

Glad I live in Asia, I didn't have to wake up in the morning to watch this recap of episodes that I've seen more than twice (thanks fansubs). Oh well, we can't forget those people who don't download/rewatch the past episodes so yeah, maybe BONES thought people have forgotten everything and just wanted to remind them LOL. But they could've just used their budget for some episode more important than this. The end was quite good, though. It's good to see Trisha again. And Pinako, too.
I just saw the op and realized Winry wasn't in there so maybe that explains why the ending was almost all about her. But seriously, why didn't they include Riza and Olivier in it? Do they have something against blonde female soldiers? Oh wait, Olivier was shown for like 3 sec. in the opening while Riza just got half a second. They really have something against Riza. D:

It didn't even deserve to be called "filler". It was a recap ep.
I'd take a village of people with a strange hardening disease (ala series 1) over this.
I am one of those people who never chooses between an arm and a leg so for me they are both equally bad. I hated that episode in the first series and I refuse to watch this one.
If this episode was all filler I would also refuse to watch it just to clarify. But since the first series was making up its own story I guess that episode about the village of people wasn't really filler (it just wasn't a good episode.)
And two endings that focus on Winry. Don't get me wrong I love Winry but someone on the animation team must really love her. As someone said I would have loved an ending that focused on all the the FMA girls not just Winry.

Ya know last week I suggested that what we were seeing in the preview would make up on a small amount of the episode, this wasn't exactly what I had in mind O_O Bit surprised by a recap episode, buuuut I suppose with a story this complicated it was needed? Uh... give full opinion when I see the episode but yeah... bit surprised by this

lulz if people forgot what had happened they coulda just rewatched the old eps, recaps in animes that go on forever annoy me, but in fma when they skipped so much material is GAAAAH, why couldnt they have say, included another ep in the Greed arc! owell last week i promised not to moan since BONES practically perfected my favourite scene (ed and al in the gate)
