@up Thank you very much!
I'm worried about the events of Chile and Japan, but the map, which was almost at the center of the screen was very annoying. I found the episode nice, though. The animation was very cool, Ed looked nicely masculine and Winry so grown up. My favorite screenshot:
Due to the cancellation of the end of FMA, Kasumisty must think of new signature.

I can't believe it's been only a year since the start of the series - surely not even teenagers grow so much? Ed looks at least 17. On a different note, his hair looks longer than Winry's )
I don't speak Japanese, but it seems they pulled another classical
Love interest: 'OH PROTAGONIST I LO-' *insert random interruption* Protagonist: 'Yeah g2g kthnx buhbye!!!'
FMA's entry on TV Tropes' Better Than It Sounds page:
Military specialist searches for a magic rock recipe to get his brother out of a can. In one version of the story, the rock is their father, in the other version the rock is us. Or: Children see a Thing Man Was Not Meant To Know, run around country looking for another one.

Looking back at it again (watched the RAW without the map) I could see things a lot better. : )
I loved Pride's malice grin, and I loved the bit with Roy and Olivier. Also, I touched upon it before, but like how they drew out the EdxWin with out making it too over the top. I couldn't help myself and took the screenshot I now have as my avatar. xD
And Ed's hair looks much shorter than it did last episode. xD

I've heard a lot of complaining about no new music... Sounded like a new track in the preview.

Much more than a year has passed by the show's timeline. There are lots of points where it skips multiple uneventful months. Especially in the beginning, there part where they're researching Marco's notes is supposed to take around two months, as I recall.

I just watched the raw for the EdxWinry scenes They are pretty good even though I don't know what they are saying I wish that they would have said "I love you" to each other or they also could have hugged since this is the last time they see each other Winry better not be dead after chapter 104!!!. Goodbye Winry I'll miss you A LOT!! She won't be seen for at least another 15 episodes!! :'(

I agree 100%, I was watching and thinking "Kiss her you FOOL~!!", argh! I wondered why I care some much, but I'm pretty sure it's because I've been following FMA for years now... so... I ... care.... o_o;;;

I can't say much about this ep as I was skimming through it (not going to enjoy it much with the map) but I have to say the end of the ep shows that Father's voice will never, ever grow on me. The whole scene with him showing up behind Oliver is creepy but the second you see him talking it just totally takes away from it and ruins it. I can't believe they cast that guy as the main villain.

Holy crap did that music make the EdWin scene hilarious! This episode oozed EdWin, and I think I actually enjoyed it. Actually I loved it. They look so grown up and beautiful. *sniffle* Can't wait for a conclusion to the romantic tension! (Actually what I can't wait for is Kit-chan to do the capsummary!)
And I just realized this... Yoki's actually a funny guy. That's all.
Al's capture scene was epic of course. Pride and Gluttony make a really good tag team! They have the best combinations of cuteness and utter horror...
I love the Roy and Olivier team too, but I support Royai all the way! Roy and Olivier are just so funny together! And totally not plotting.
Funny how General Hakuro doesn't make an appearance in the beginning of the series, but when he does show himself, he still ends up dealing with a train! And then it blows up. He has really bad luck with trains.
ED with Riza and the crew left me pumped up for the next ep! Roy fading out was great too!
Let me just say this: I really hope Japan doesn't get devastated by a terrible tsunami.

-the map of Japan was annoying, but it could've been worse -this episode is chock full of EdWin. At least I enjoyed the scene; it was done well. -they left the "bake me an apple pie and keep it warm" in -eh the scene with Bradley's train blowing up could have been done a little better me thinks -Pride and Gluttony make a cool team. they have the perfect combination of cuteness and creepiness -Al's capture was epic, just as I thought it would be. -Olivier and Roy are sooo not plotting together -liked the scene with Riza and the rest of the Mustang gang -I knew they were going to end this episode with Father and Sloth appearing in Central command
Ooh next episode: the fight with Pride and Gluttony with (hopefully) Ran Fan's return. I miss her...

I didn't even notice the map watching it this time. Totally forgot it was even there, but I was also in my mood where I just look at subtitles instead of reading them.
Good to see Gluttony back if only for 2 more episodes. Pride looked great, but his animations continue to be weird. It looked like his shadows were boiling up his eyes like eggs..or something.
Hate to see all the familiar faces from the manga be nobodies at the end. (Hakuro, Ishval war buddies, etc.) And the train could have blown up better, too. Grumman's expression with the fan and the ED starting then were awesome, though.
I want to hear that new track in the preview next episode. Speaking of upcoming episodes, I wonder how they're gonna draw out all the action over 3 episodes.
