Talk-back/content discussion for English dubbed episode on Adult Swim starts on page 5.
Please post the discussions on the content of episode 54 here. This thread is declared as a Spoiler zone for the content of the first 54 episodes.
Please don't ask for links on where to watch this episode, raw or subbed. Discussions on 'where to watch' belong in Where/How to Watch FMA Series 2. Don't post screencaps unless highlighting something important about the content of the episode. Just like on in most area's of the board, avoid one line posts, spam of any kind or conversations between two members.
I will not tolerate anyone ignoring the rules. I will make these clear and simple;
-Do not spam. -Add spoiler tags to spoilers -Do not go off topic -Do not fight
Spam means one line posts that contain little content. "OMG that ep was so cool" would be an example of spam. If you enjoyed the episode please specify what you enjoyed so much, was there anything you didn't like?
Spoilers mean anything you know will happen in upcoming episodes. Not everybody reads the manga and you may reveal something they didn't know. For future episode discussion, please go to the relevant topic. If you are unsure how to use spoiler tags, please ask.
Going off topic means discussing a characters actions outside of the episode, or talking about the artwork, or upcoming episodes etc. I know this can happen easily so don't be upset if I move your posts or guide you in the right direction. Double check the forum for the right place to take your post.
Everybody can voice their opinion, and nobody is correct just as nobody is incorrect. Because none of you will spam (right?) people will justify why they didn't like something. You are welcome to say "well I like that part because..." but you CAN NOT say "no you are wrong because..."
I don't like to start a thread so negatively but I want to stop these things before they happen. Please ensure this is the only time I have to mention these rules.

Dang, Colleen did beautifully at the beginning for the "burn my back" scene. That's one thing that stood out for me. She was just amazing in general, as always, so no complaints there.
One thing I don't remember hearing in Brotherhood, or the first series, was the voice of whomever Envy was disguised as blending into Envy's own voice when switching into his original form. For some reason, I was totally in love with the transition of Roy's voice to Envy's after Riza played that trick on him. Don't think they did that with the original. I freakin' loved the tone in Roy's voice when he was surprised to find Ed with them, the "Aw, Fullmetal. Let me have that," and his threat to burn Ed's hand. And when Riza told him she knew he was a better person than that and she couldn't see him fall to that level. Everyone nailed the tones of the emotion coming through their voices. And good job Wendy. XD I knew you were dreading this scene. XD
I only had a few nick picks. One was some of Ed's dialogue when he was yelling at Roy about looking at his own face. I didn't like how Ed asked him if he would become a monster, or something like that, rather than screaming out becoming the ruler of the country was what he was fighting for. And then Travis' attempts with his final scream when blasting Envy and his cry when he let out that final blast down the tunnel sounded a little awkward. But then Miki Shinichirou is my most favorite seiyuu, and was nothing short of God of Voices when it came to these scenes (his screams and cries never fail to give me goosebumps) and after watching this episode over 50 times literally subbed, it was strange hearing it in english finally. So Travis (for me personally) had A LOT to fill in, and I had a REALLY hard time not comparing his performance with the sub, even though I'm usually pretty good about that.
So other than that one line from Ed (Vic's actually performance through the whole thing was downright amazing), and a little of Roy's mega screams/yells (not the actual dialogue; he got that down perfectly), everything was amazing as expected. Congrats guys, especially you Travis, considering after watching so many series just because of my love for Shinichirou over the course of 11 years (with this scene being one of the best in his career in my opinion), you took up the challenge wonderfully.
