Talk-back/content discussion for English dubbed episode on Adult Swim starts on page 5. smile.gif


Please post the discussions on the content of episode 30 here.
This thread is declared as a Spoiler zone for the content of the first 30 episodes.


REMINDER to U.S. fans in the area with Daylight saving Time, and following the streaming of the show as it airs in Japan:
1. Don't forget about changing time tonight/this morning... setting it back one hour.
2. BUT, they don't change time in Japan, and hence, after we change back our time from Daylight Saving Time to Standard Time, the show in Japan would start ONE HOUR EARLIER from now on. ^^



I'll be back later and fill out the rest of the first post. ^^

Was that a shot of Isaac I saw about halfway in? I found that a nice touch to the episode.

I believe it was! At 10.04; metal sheet covering the arm, crew cut, shadowy eyes... nice touch indeed. Now on to finish watching the rest of the episode. So far I feel it has been quite punch-packing, impact wise, despite what everyone has said smile.gif I really like the bombastic militaristy music.

EDIT:

Now that I've watched the whole ep, I'll give away some thoughts.

- That (new!) vocal piece which played during the creation of the Philosopher's stone was great. Conveyed some serious emotion.
- I feel like making small (and essentially insignificant) changes like Riza's father dying in bed helps establish Brotherhood as it's own series, instead of having it be a slideshow of moving panels from the manga. It feels more of an adaption that way, rather than a slavish "recap" (?).
- Good way to end the episode; quite a cliffhanger. Or at least it would be, if Marcoh had gotten some more screentime. As it is, we barely knew who he was, which makes it harder to emphatize with him as a character.
- About screentime, too bad they left out Marcoh talking to Dr. Knox. And Armstrong proving himself to be human. And Kimbley ruining that one humane act. And Riza saving Roy and Hughes from that Ishbalan soldier. And Envy's precence on the battlefield, right after Kimblee goes extra crazy. In short, they left out a couple of great scenes, a lot which I didn't mention here. Let's hope they'll put things like this in later.
- The only thing I actually felt lacking with the episode was the missing feeling of war. Where's the chaos? Where's the hectic battles? Where's the stray bullets and nearby explosions? This is why I think they should have made a FULL flashback. Thrown us back in time for maybe two full episodes, and really having the past of Ishbal feel like the PRESENCE. The here. The now. Like it is now, they're sprinkling (as someone previously said) scenes from Ishval here and there throughout the series, which is really not a bad way to have it. It's just that it takes away the impression of being "in the moment".
- Oh, and Bradley was finally made justice! So far he's been looking chubby (facially), IMO. The lines of his face has been ridicilously thick at times, making him feel really cartoonish. Now he resembled his serious-looking anime1 counterpart more. Which I think is good.
- The eyecatches were awesome biggrin.gif This is the first time I've looked at Riza as an attractive character xP
- And lastly, it just hit me that we've probably gone through more than half of the series! I mean, we're already at episode 30! It suddenly feels like it's gone really fast T_O
