Summary: Ling and Ranfan team up to take on Gluttony, easily taking out several of his lives due to their ability to sense him, which Fu (who suddenly appears) explains to Edward. The lights in the slums begin to come back on, concerning Ed and Darius, and Ed comes up with a plan involving Fu. Heinkel continues to attack Selim, but doesn't make very much progress. Meanwhile, Roy meets with Madam Christmas and recieves confirmation that Selim isn't human. Villagers happen upon Heinkel and Selim and Selim scares them, causing one to drop a lantern. The fire allows Pride to use his abilities, but Edward saves him. In Central, soldiers try to get at Roy at Madam Christmas's bar, but he blows it up and the two escape in the sewers. Roy meets with Hawkeye, Breda, and Fuery in a hideout underground as they prepare to go into action, and he tells them not to die. Pride, unable to hurt Ed because of his use of carbon hardening on his automail, decides to use Alphonse to fight Ed, but Ed has Fu use a flashback which seperates Al long enough to be carried off. Gluttony races to meet with Pride, who he informs of the many lives he's lost. Pride takes this chance to devour Gluttony to gain his sense of smell in order to find his opponents in the dark. In Central, Father wonders what Roy plans to do next, and Olivier says that he will probably kidnap the Fuhrer's wife. Roy does just that. - written by penguintruth over at his blog.

NICEE
Goodbye, Fullmetal Alchemist. Thanks for the memories.
-the manga, characters, story lines, the ending, the Brotherhood series, the first anime and the movie and all things related to it, are the only things that I will always love like how I love my own life.-
- Nice fight scenes at the beginning. Ran Fan is really good. - Fuu is back too. - Madame Christmas! - Selim is a bit old for a child. - Whatís that map AGAIN! Ah, Iím glad it disappeared. - Roy-tachi!! <3 - Aww, Hayate is so cute. - And finally the underground oath. - Ed is acting cool. - Poor Gluttony got eaten. - Itís ending already? Oh, more scenes after the ending! - Wow, they extended the scene when Roy-tachi kidnapped Mrs. Bradley. Roy and Riza are awesome. Keyhole was lagging really badly this week, so I canít wait to watch it again in a better quality. (EDIT: Found a good raw. )

- We start off with Ran Fan kicking Gluttony's arse once more. And she's awesome! - Mizuki-san! How nice to hear you after 17 episodes or so! - The animation is awesome - tag-team Ling and Ran Fan is indeed invincible. - Ahaha, the part when Edo was blown up by a grenade was superb. I don't recall this from the manga, but still! - And here goes Central again. - Madame Christmas! - KE?! What's this weird map and sound and... don't tell me this will last the whole episode! NOT AGAIN! - Oh, it disappeared. Thanks God. Just in time for the awesome explosion. - Is it new music or do I mishear? - COOL RAN FAN EYECATCH! - And Gluttony finally got one! I think it's his first one. - Wow, it's all about new music... I love how it fits the "just don't die" scene. - Ed vs. Pride fight! The animation really has gotten better. - WOW.. JUST WOW... THE FLASHBANG SCENE IS.... MY GOD... BEAUTIFUL! - Poor Gluttony... Really, I do feel sorry for him. Selim, you meanie! - And we end up with Hohenheim. - Oh wait, we end up with the Mustang Team kidnapping Mrs. Bradley. - Oh God, the old music returned to the previews. But still, the preview is awesome.
Wow, the episodes lately are getting more and more interesting... the current fight is just awesome - I love the quality and animation. I think the whole Pride fight is my favourite arc so far.

-I laughed so hard when we got an Roy x Some map, that was a surprise! Ranfan, honestly, she now seems like a sadist or something to me. She likes when others suffer. Poor Gluttony. And then the poor guy got eaten! *shakes head* -For me, music didn't fit at some spots. But sometimes it was great. -And Keyhole sucked today. I missed the spot where Hayate becomes 2nd lieutenant, Keyhole wouldn't show me anything. -I liked that effect, when Al's armor stepped on the floor and underneath his boots shadow hands rose... looked kinda cool. -Is it just my imagination or was Greedling totally useless today? He just screamed "Ranfaaaaan~<3" a few times and didn't fight at all. -Kidnapping of WifeBradley was funny. Riza knows how to kick guys. Nobody can withstand her xD
You have to leave me alot of cute messages! I love messages =3

My initial thoughts:
- Wow, Ranfan is just brutalizing that fatty. - Oh, hey there, Fu. Nice for you to show up and STAND THERE, DOING NOTHING. - Is it just me, or do some of these scenes seem a litle dragged out? - Madame Christmas! - WOAH, WOAH, WOAH, is this... another map?! Oh, there it goes. Okay. - Dragging things out... - Aaaaaand dragging things out more... - What the eff is taking so long?! - Gluttony ;_; - I hate you SO MUCH, Pride. You little douchebag. - Ah, Mrs. Bradley. You're just as much a prop here as in the first series. - That's some pretty calm music for a next episode that has one of Hohenheim's best moments.
Bloated episode was bloated. Like Gluttony. (;_;)
How disappointing. But maybe the next episode will be better.
Fullmetal Alchemist is over! Thank you, Hiromu Arakawa! ;_;

- Gluttony getting owned by Lan Fan is always awesome. - Ed gets blown up? HA. - Fu's mustache makes me think of a fish. Don't know why. - That look on Pride's face kind of made him look like some sort of evil mini-Mustang. - Another Stray Dog cameo! I love how it keeps popping up. - Is it just me, or do Ed and Mustang have lumpy heads? They seem to be drawn kinda weird. - Aww, Hayate~ I wish they'd kept the joke about the dog outranking Fuery, but I guess that would ruin the "srsbznz" atmosphere.
This episode did feel pretty dragged out, but I can understand why - If they go too fast when Arakawa isn't finished yet, they'll run out of material!

Freaking awesome episode was amazing. Pride just became even more epic in my eyes. I mean, I knew this would happen. But seeing it animated. Oh GAWWW I loved it XD And poor Gluttony He was my favorite.
LanFan of epic win porportions. I loved watching her just Rape at the beginning. And the two eyecatches were pretty amazing. I'll gather my thoughts later, but I wanted to come on here and share my impression

I don't know if that was "dragging it out", but they really emphasized Gluttony getting trashed. It made me feel pretty bad for him seeing him helpless, especially when Pride ate him. I wonder if, with his intelligence, it were possible to pull him over to the good side. Just keep his hunger under control, of course. Anyway, awkwardly enough, I didn't hate Pride for it. I guess I was too annoyed at the repetition of Mortal Sin, though it did work under that scene.
I'm a little disappointed at how they rearranged the Mrs.Bradley kidnapping scene so that Father doesn't say anything after they kidnap her. And Sloth wasn't snoring.
But the animation was pretty good. Overall, the episode was much better than last week. I think next episode is done by episode 19/38's animation director.
