I have pretty much one thing to say: Pride MADE this episode. I liked him in the manga, but he was just amazing this ep. SO cold, so brutal, and I love that in him. Especially his voice.

Also, HI THERE ROY-TACHI!

Something I noticed: Why did Roy change back into a military uniform to kidnap Mrs Bradley? Aren't they all kind of supposed to be rebelling or something?


I'd always assumed it was because he's hoping to become head of the country from the coup, and that he coudln't do that if he deserted like the rest of his men. Most of teh people of Amteris know and recognise and turst the military, so if he just abandoned it altogether and threw it aside, then the general public may not trust him as much. I dunno, I assumed there was a reason like this behind it.

That and it looks badass.

I'm kinda dissapointed that Pride didn't switch to his Selim voice while taunting Ed, cause that's how it came across to me in the manga.


Glad I wasn't the only one who thought this. I was sure he'd switch when taunting Ed and perhaps even when he went "Goodbye, Chimera-san."

But oh well, that's my only complaint because everything else with Pride was indeed done justice in this episode, and him eating Gluttony was even more disturbing than in the manga, which was awesome.

And the one chapter per episode pace didn't bother me at all. I actually wish they'd gone with it more often.

-I didn't really notice the one chapter pacing. To me it made the episode better and we got more Pride.
-And we start off with some blood.
-Loved the music playing when Gluttony was getting beat up by RanFan and Ling. They need to play that music more often.
-Fuu's moustache does look he snorted a fish! Hehe.
-Pride is awesome during episode.
-LOL Ed getting pwned by Darius.
-Roy X map? That's... new. Anyways I'm just glad they didn't change the Madame Christmas scene. It was one of my favorite scenes in the manga.
-Ooh... Ed's looking good this episode. I mean everyone is animated well. That is always a plus.
-Mustang tachi!
-Why didn't Pride switch to his Selim voice when taunting Ed?
-Flashbang scene looked good.
-Oh my... Poor Gluttony! sad.gif You have to wonder whether he was really evil or just absolutely devoted to his family. He seemed so innocent (for a homunculus) when Pride gobbled him up. Gluttony was always one of my favorites and honestly, I'm sad to see him go.
-Hahaha. The "kidnapping" of Mrs. Bradley was funny.

This episode was awesome. This is now one of my favorites.

So...Ling punshed Gluttony so he bounced away like a rubberball...Wow. The man has muscles. (Wait!! He's only 15/16!!)
Hmm, the quality wasn't that good. I fully understand it can't be top notch all the time, though. Except close-ups on Ed, they're all badass...no, wait, apparently not. (But the last one in the preveiw *_* Pretty!) I think they went for the actionscenes instead, which I'm not overly enthustiastic about.
Oo, the eating made me slightly queezy.
But it was so short!! D:
Although I'm not into older guys, this episode served as a reminder to me that Mustang is, indeed, drop-dead sexy.
Can't wait for Al to do some stuff!

(Since I did not ONCE mention Pride in that short review, you may have guessed I'm not his greatest fan XD)

I actually agree with this. It's like people are never satisfied. If the episode goes too fast, they complain. If they cut stuff out of the episode, they complain. Now for once they actually pace the episode properly and it's all one chapter filling an entire episode, for once it's not too fast and not much has been cut out, but they still complain. I don't get it. People need to stop contradicting themselves. I, for one, found the pacing of the episode just fine. It was an excellent one and it really showed just how devious and evil Pride really is. I also love his voice. It gives me the chills, it's so positively creepy. And of course RanFan!! Yay for RanFan! <333 She absolutely mutilated poor Gluttony there. I almost felt sorry for him.

This IS the pacing the show should've roughly been at since the beginning, yes, but the problem is just doing it randomly (during an action ep no less, where pacing is usually faster) throws people off and makes the episode feel slower.

The show's pacing is too inconsistent which is the only issue now with pacing. It's funny, early on they were covering weeks of story in FMA time in a few episodes, now it's going to be 15 odd episodes all occuring in the same 24 hour period.

No matter how good the series' finale is, its one biggest flaw will always be that the pacing is incredibly inconsistent.
