Sloth's voice was a lot more human than I expected... I think I would have preferred something a little more gravelly, but I'm sure I'll get used to it.
Nice pacing in this ep, though I agree that the ending felt weird.

The subs for ep 34 aren't out yet, are they? Because I can't find them anywhere.
Not the best quality, but I know one. Anyone would like to know the link, please PM me and ask me.

Well, can't complain too much about the subs, since they don't have anything to do with Bones' performance.
- Great episode. The only thing I feel missing is a Briggs "main theme" addition to the soundtrack, and some new bgm. - Miles voice was perfect. Sloth's voice was good; as you guys said, it sounded a lot more human and less monster-ish than you'd expect, but I think it suited him. - And lastly, this felt like a really fast episode. Not because it was paced too fast, but because stuff was happening all the time. There wasn't any StreeetchiingTM or questionable filler material. - Looking forward to next Sunday, as always

OT: BTW, thanks for the link. Already watched it though, but I think it might have been the same version, since you mentioned the not so high quality...
The Drachma? The Briggs? The Central?
And then there were random lines translated to spanish throughout the course of the episode....

*nod nod* I wants a Briggs Main theme too! I'm happy they slowed down, thinkin about it we're like on volume 17 now! SEVENTEEN where did all that manga go?? I'm happy they slowed down but I can't help but feel a little edgey they missed so much previously, I seriously don't understand this pacing in the slightest, anyway the ep was really good, havnt seen the subs yet, but scenes like Ed and the icecles made me chuckle XD and Olivier is awesome

I'm happy they finally kept the pacing well, and I love all the new VAs! The only problem I had concerned the sub (since when is Miles married???!!!!) but that has nothing to do with the episode, so no complaints (except the weird ending)
Best parts? OLIVIA (everything about her) and seeing Falman again!

Ahem, anyway, this episode was particularly good. I absolutely love seeing Olivier (I really hate calling her that...I prefer Olivia <.<)really kicking some serious [All hail lord Xenu] in this ep! I loved how they kept in the red shrimp jokes and how talking about Alex pissed her off. xD It was awesome. And enter Sloth! He's...just...so...sluggish. I actually cracked up laughing when he fell asleep as soon as I he dug himself out of that tunnel. The eye catches this week were awesome. I LOVE Miles! <3 I loved the scene between him and the brothers. I always enjoyed that in the manga so it was particularly cool to see it finally animated. I laughed a lot in this ep. It was a great one. I can't wait until Winry finally comes up north! x3 More EdxWin moments ftw! lol I know it's a few eps yet, but yeah.

Episode 34 is, quite possibly, my favorite episode since episode 19 (Roy vs Lust). There are so many great elements to it.
First, the art/animation for the snow and ice is perfect. I love how the Briggs fortress looks, and can see my waiting paid off. The battle with Sloth was pretty well done, too, though you could tell that they were saving their budget for that part because the first half of the episode had some wonky animation here and there. The presentation overall, especially with Olivier's reactions, was excellent.
The episode itself was well-paced, my only problem being where it ended, but it's forgivable. I felt like everything that I saw had just the right amount of screentime. This isn't some big, epic battle with all parties, but it is something that needs to be done just right, and it's being done so.
Olivier's VA is awesome. Miles sounded different than I expected, but he sounds good. Sloth was great, and sounded exactly the way I thought he'd sound. Romi Paku continues to perform well. I wish Alphonse would get a few more lines (or actions), though.
I really loved seeing the team work of the Briggs crew. It reminded me a lot of how Roy and his group work together, but Olivier is far sexier, and she doesn't even need alchemy to pull it off.
The little details were great, too, like the detail of Olivier's sword and the continuing appearance of Edward's scar. I've been noticing that about the scar on Roy's hand that's still there from when he cut an alchemy array on there. Little things like this really help to immerse me in the show, and the world it takes place in.
My only real complaint is the lack of new music. Somebody get Akira Senju into a studio. If you can't, threaten to bring in Oshima again.
If only the past few episodes could have been this good. If only all of them could be. But then, we could never catch our breaths, were that the case!

i loved everything about this episode...hahahaha...awesome...the detail level was top notch and the pacing was spot on...hahahahah....by the way...i might be counting unhatched eggs here...but i have a feeling that l'arc en ciel is gonna perform opening 4 of this anime....because ...they are coming out with a single on around 27th january (BLESS) and i bet that there is going to be a new opening in close to 5 to 6 episodes.....ie january 1st week....its just a hunch...i hope it comes true....
well now talkin bout the episode.... so many plus points -pacing -art work -detail.....wat really struck me about the detail of this anime is the fact that i noticed wen ed,al and miles were having that convo before falman entered the scene......its the way they released smog...awesome......they only did so wen they didnt talk for a few seconds......otherwise ...no smog....realistic....... -olivier was awesome...... -sloth looks menacing........ -and the ending was awesome too......
as penguintruth said..............WE NEED NEW MUSIC!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
