After all the whining last week, I'm surprised (not really) that more people haven't acknowledged the additional Ishbal flashback scene in this episode.

This episode was amazing! It presented the material it should and though I missed some minor scenes (such as Mustang's funny expression in Madame Christmas bar) I was still satisfied.

First: the art and animation. What I noticed as first was that all the characters looked like themselves all the time! Especially the eyes - Hawkeye's eyes (which fall victim almost every time somthing's off) were allright all the time. Edward's eyes were amazing to look at and Kimblee's eyes! Loved them.
(you know how to recognize bad character drawing? not only Riza's eyes but even Ed's are just weird)
Fuu and Lan Fan walking into the night while Greedling sits under starry sky. Poetry for my eyes. By the way, I'm so looking forward to see the north. I love the way BONES does background and the flash I got of Briggs looked impressive.

Otherwise my impressions are almost te same as after watching the raw, subs only highlited for me scene with Knox' family.

Fuery telling Hayate to grow nto a big and strong dog so he could protect everyone made me laugh - it was almost as if Fuery instead of Hayate talked about himself.

Mustang and his chess pieces. So that's why they didn't include assembling of Mustang team in previous episode!

Envy + Kimblee playing double. Who of them is more twisted and evil? Hard to say. But how they understood each other! I love Envy's voice actress, and while I'm still getting used to Kimblee's new voice, their little intermezzo was refreshing and delightful, in a way.

I'd include this episode in my top 5 for sure. Not much of a dramatic development but I enjoyed every second. And that counts a great deal.

Interesting how the animators can draw Al's complicated helmet perfectly symmetrical every time, but Hawkeye's eyes are always different sizes and positions. (until this episode, at least biggrin.gif )

Yeah, I've always wondered about that too. Maybe there's a little disagreement about how they should be drawn? Some animators want Hawkeye to look more moe or something?

Anyway... nice episode! I've always loved that little scene where Lan Fan leaves with her big "I'll be back" and then they pan to Greedling. So glad they animated it. Just realized we won't be seeing Lan Fan for a while... I'll miss her.

The episode was pretty good due to slow pacing but I'm surprised im the only person bothered by the omission of one great comedy scene.

That's one of my favourite comedy scenes in the entire manga, I love the "monster" Ed you see every so often in the manga.


I missed that scene too! It's one of the few times that Ed actually seems to put his military position into good use (aside from his research into the Philosopher's Stone). Plus I love his forked tongue.

I also thought that having Riza telling Roy not to die seemed extremely out of place given that it's original use in the flashback to the two standing infront of her father's grave was never included (at least not that particular line)

I loved the chess pieces bit (especially Riza as the Queen, big Royai fan as I am) but I felt a little bad for Fuery there, just a pawn...
