Okay. Here I go:
-WTF? Time change! Haven't they heard about it? Today the summer time changed to winter time! Is that normal that the Japanese ignore it or do they do that later?
-I imagined it with the 520 cents alot better and more detailed! They diddn't even show the coins. It could have been done better. Seriously...
-We got Roy Eyecatch. Will we get Riza eyecatch? Oh... no, it's Marcoh T____T
-Oh. Marco got crazy.
-This episode is so detailless. I mean the way it's drawn.
-The music isn't nice this time.
-Chuui, Taisa and Alex in a car... lol?
-Yes, Ed, bring the gun to the lieutenant. So that we can see the tatoo in the next episode <3
-OMG NEXT EPISODE ISHBAAAL FLASHBAAACKS!!!ONEONE11

Ah, Japanese people doesn't have a time change. Tsk. I knew about that still I woke up too late xP I started watching ep from cms.
Honestly, I thought they are going to end this episode with cliffhanger and they did, with Marcoh and Scar, I wasn't expecting this, I wanted Riza's back, really. Ok, I'll say something about ep when subs or at least raw will be out.

I thought the episode will end with Riza's tattoo, but it looks like they left that for the next ep.
I agree, Ed borrowing money from Roy was too rushed.
Marcoh was weird when he began laughing.
I hope Riza will get an eyecatch next week. Can't wait for the Ishbal flashbacks! biggrin.gif

My initial thoughts:

- Lol, Envy saw Ed's wang.
- I love Bradley's second run-through of Al, this time missing
- I'm getting used to hearing Greed's voice coming out of Ling
- The scene on the roof between Greed and Bradley is great
- Flashback of Armstrong's breakdown!
- Injured Xingese showdown!
- Edward's looking pretty mature.
- Oooh, intense post-credit scene with Marcoh and Scar
- UGA, UGA UGA

Not a super exciting episode, but still pretty good. Next week, Ishbal flashback!

Fullmetal Alchemist is over! Thank you, Hiromu Arakawa! ;_;

Agreed! There's nothing wrong with that scene. In the manga it was just one panel with bubbles of dialogue. That scene is of no importance right now in this episode. wink.gif

Aha, <OT, but a good reminder to U.S. fans for the next week when we switch times> :

Anyone who is in the U.S., and following the live streaming of FMA:B episodes from Japan, for the next week's episode, don't forget that they don't change time in Japan. ^^
biggrin.gif


(I'll delete this post after the next episode. ^^)

@black~hayate - You're in Europe, and you guys, except for Ireland, do the time change this weekend, right? In the U.S., (except areas where they don't use Daylight Saving Time) we switch back from the current Daylight Saving time to the Standard time NEXT weekend.
And, no, they don't switch time in Japan. smile.gif

Eh, sorry if I ask this here, so that means that the episode will be aired one hour earlier every time now? For me, I mean?
....Yes. ^^ ~ Tombow

If this is the case, then I'm happy, I can watch fma and don't have to miss my shooting training xD
(sry for offtopic)


Now:
I guess you guys are right with the cents promise thing. It would be just cooler when we see the part 2 of the promise (Roy asking Ed to pay him back the money) , when the watchers who don't know the manga, get a light bulb over their head. There is a high chance that the promise will be forgotten if it came so short xD

I think my favourite part of this episode was the preview for the next one. o3o First episode we get to see Kimbley's full face outside of the opening! xD Ishbal! My favourite part of the series! I can't wait! I really hope they do a really amazing job with episode 30, because if that's the only episode they're doing the flashback in, it needs to be good. :/

Anyway, as for this episode, I agree that the art was a bit lacking this time around, but you also have to remember that this was filled with mostly talking, so there was no real need for amazing animation. Better they save that for the episodes to come, y'know?

-I always thought Envy's soldier disguise would have a different voice. Something cool. Guess not.
-Roy's looking almost cute in this episode. Weird.
-They kept the scar on his hand, though, so that's good.
-Riza's awfully nice sounding. I guess it was fitting, though.
-Xingese rivalry! I love how they did it.

Can't wait for the neeext~!

Well, I must say, I didn't like this episode as well. The animation was simply horrible. Repetative motions, no coins at all (wtf?) wobbly art. And nothing much happening as well. The only good scenes for me were Ed's shower (modified through and through of course...) and Ranfan fighting with Mei.

Why do they have mess with the story so much?

2/10


--------------------
Due to the cancellation of the end of FMA, Kasumisty must think of new signature.

It may take a while.

Mess with the story??? Are you being hypocrital on purpose or is it natural? I didn't see anything messy with how they made the story, and didn't see any strong lack in animation and drawings.

I personnaly loved the last bit with Scar, the guy's anger gave me the creep. I really was worried about Marcoh there. I was also pleasantly surprised at the discussion with Winry on the phone, I was expecting her to freak out, but no she kept that soft tone the whole discussion, and even then Ed freaked out laugh.gif

Well I, for one, find this episode very well done and enjoyable! What's wrong with the animation? I hardly noticed anything. Certainly you can't expect a 'rest' episode like this one to have superb animation like 26, 28, right? But it's in no way horrible imo.

Nothing much happened? You must be kidding, them crammed 2 chapters of the manga in this one episode, and they did a good job this time around, nothing much was changed or omitted, well, apart from the shower scene (which I didn't give a damn about and is just one small unimportant scene) and maybe some lines were shortened. But look back at ep 11, now that's messing up with the story. This ep was much better than that.

Of course, hating it or liking it is your own choice, I just find your reasons for hating it rather ridiculous and unreasonable. huh.gif
