Talk-back/content discussion for English dubbed episode on Adult Swim starts on page 3.
Please post the discussions on the content of episode 31 here. This thread is declared as a Spoiler zone for the content of the first 31 episodes.
REMINDER to U.S. fans in the area that uses Daylight saving Time, and following the streaming of the show as it airs in Japan: Now that we changed back our time from Daylight Saving Time to Standard Time, the show in Japan would start ONE HOUR EARLIER than it used to be (till two weeks ago.) ^^
I'll be back later and fill out the rest of the first post. ^^
Let's see: - Royai scene: They left the „please don’t die" line - „They took my queen” scene!!! And they showed Riza right after that, I loved that! - Roy in casual clothes ^^ - The 520 Cenz promise - Fuu is back - Madame Christmas!! - No „Elizabeth was taken by another man” - Roy and Kimbley eyecatch - Fuu and Ran Fan leave for a while now - They didn’t leave out Knox’s family, that’s good - More Ishbal flashbacks with Kimbley - Scar destroyed Marcoh’s face, and they’re heading to North - Grumman in the next ep!

My initial thoughts:
- I forgot to mention that the previous episode ended in a stupid place - Did they skip the part where Alphonse says he wants to eat an apple pie? - Oh, yeah. I forgot how little happens around this time. - I like Roy assigning the members of his team to the chesspieces - Madame Christmas! And... that's it. Way to shorten another scene I like, Bones. - That commercial with Olivia in it again! Who is her voice?! - They left in the scene with Knox's family... who cares? I have not put in enough time with this character to care. - Kimbley! And a flashback to something that should have been in the previous episode! - Envy and Kimbley, each trying to out-crazy the other.
The next episode is "The Fuhrer's Son"? Uh... how long are they going to stretch out that one scene in the library? But it looks like there might be an added scene with Bradley, and that's always good. More Bradley equals awesome, right?
Fullmetal Alchemist is over! Thank you, Hiromu Arakawa! ;_;

Nope, they didn't skip this.
- Chess scene, hell yeah! - Hot Havoc in chess scene is hot - Hot Roy in eyecatch is hot - Madame Christmas is WIN, EPIC WIN - Grummy is also win - But cutting out "Elizabeth was taken by another man" isn't win at all -.- - cm with Olivier again But who the hell is her VA? - RanFun, I want to hug her - Next episode, scene near Maes' grave=win - Still no "burn my back", right now I have no idea where they might put it in - It's nice to see some of the Ishval flashback

Yes! It seems good animation is back, and pace slowed down again, no Ishbal flashback thus far (was secretely hoping for Roy, Riza and Dr. Knox).
- Mustang-tachi got the chance to say good bye in a dignified way - Mustang steering the car LOL - 520 cenz promise. Yes! - Dr. Knox scene uncut - loved it so much (could've been better choice of music but hell...) - Kimbley's voice still doesn't suit him (in my opinion), sounds strange but that may be turned around - Kimbley out of prison scene well done - Madame Christmas, how could I forget, she looks amazng! But I miss the rest of the scene, Mustang in bar was amazing in manga - Nearly choked on my breakfast when I saw what obscurity it was Grumman was polishing - Fu and Lan Fan, again, well done
So next episode we move north and we get some sightings of that cute son of that horrible King Bradley. And there will be some Mustang on graveyard. Looking forward to it!
I'm biased, I know, but I can't help but love the way Dr. Knox is drawn in Brotherhood so I enjoy every bit of him I get. Kimbley look wonderfully this time round. Overall feeling of this episode was more than good, though I couldn't believe it was over so quickly.
Edit: I heard Olivier's voice! Should be fine, it's deep and close to what I hear in my head while reading FMA.

I really liked this episode- the animation and art were both great, and it had good pacing, and I like that they kept in the majority of the scenes. : ) (I'll be able to have other things to say when I've watched it subbed; I only watched it on Keyhole with the volume down. >.>;;)
Although I'm probably going to steer clear of this thread (and probably the RoyAi one) for a while because I just know there's going to be a bunch of "there was no 'Elizabeth' scene!" comments. xD; As much as I love the couple, it just seems as though, especially for the last episode or so-- that it's actually just the hardcore RoyAi fans that complain about the episode because it's missing such a scene that only pertains to their favourite couple. >.>;;
I can understand why sometimes because it further develops the character and their relationship with each other (for example, the 'burn my back' scene) however when it's just things where Roy says "Riza" or says he's 'lost Elizabeth' - yes I see why RoyAi fans would be bummed about them, but to me (and maybe others) they're just of little importance.

KIMBLEY EYECATCH. <3
...Though, after all of my nitpicking over the years, it turns out I was wrong... |D; They spelt his first name with an 'S', not a 'Z'. Oh well, I'll get over it.
Riza was actually drawn very well in this episode, I think. And so was that fountain behind Ed and Al in the beginning. xD As far as I could tell and from what I can remember from the manga, they didn't skip anything all too important. The pacing was great, the animation wasn't weird, and they kept my favourite scene from this part of the manga- Kimbley and Envy in the car. That part always made me giggle for some reason.
