Summary: Using the Philosopher's Stone, Alphonse battles Pride and Kimbley. Kimbley is impressed, but is curious as to why Alphonse hasn't used the stone to retrieve his body. Alphonse claims that the possibility exists to save everyone and regain his body. Kimbley argues that it's possible that neither will occur, and attacks using his own, refined stone. In Central, the Armstrong siblings take on Sloth, who proves to be the fastest of the homunculi. Pride seemingly gains the advantage against Alphonse, but it turns out to be a trap. Heinkel comes from behind Kimbley and bites his neck. Edward, Scar, and the other chimera continue to fight the homunculi army, who try disabling them by taking out their legs. As Pride taunts Alphonse and his group, a car comes out of nowhere and hits him. The car is driven by none other than Yoki, who helps the others escape. Alone with a dying Kimbley, Pride decides to devour him like he did with Gluttony. Back at Central HQ, the troops who corner Olivier are attacked by the homunculi army and she tells them to make a choice between dying or making a stand. Beneath Central, Envy chases Mei. In the room where Ed and the others are, they are beginning to get overwhelmed, but Roy and Riza arrive. Penguintruth, used with permission

^Agree! The helicopter shot, as you called it, of Pride was gorgeous!! Don't know why, but I thought it was!
The close-up on Kimblee's mouth when he showed his PS was really nice too!

(Rant about Al's hands moved too Character Design. *is afraid the mods will come after me*)

I love when Kimblee throws up rocks to hear where Al is! It's so smart! Gosh! (He should look a bit more dirty, though, IMO.)
I don't mind the gore-censoring, though. Just look at the last panel! Ugh! I'm quite happy I didn't have to see that animated.

I thought the OP-insert was nice. The melody was maybe a bit too cheerfull, but it made me not see that the fight had a lot of Dynamic Stillframes. I felt really sorry for Ed, as he doesn't like this kind of thing. He's just a kid and has a vulnerable heart. He still value souls very high. Nice to see he pulled through and didn't freak or mope out.
The cheerfullness did NOT on the other hand feel out of place when they switched to the Armstrong's fight!! Then it was Crowning Music of Awesome!!

(Haha, lol. When May kicks the first doll, there's a questionmark!)

I just realised the title for the episode (and chapter) is beautiful <3 Combined strength. The whole episode was just about that. Teamwork. Lovely wub.gif

(I have disappionted myself. sad.gif Epic fail. I mixed up the first anime, where A. Armstrong is in the north, I think, and betrays the military/don't follow order, with the manga. I have been sitting here, waiting for it to happen, because I've only read these last 30 chapters once, and seen the first anime once, both a year ago so my memory was blurry. But still, how could I? ;_;)
