Talk-back/content discussion for English dubbed episode on Adult Swim starts on page 3. smile.gif


Please post the discussions on the content of episode 55 here.
This thread is declared as a Spoiler zone for the content of the first 55 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.

Screenshots: see mersaydee's Post.

Summary: An announcement is made to the Central Army that the Briggs troops have occupied Central HQ. One of the other generals inside tries to turn the Fuhrer's office into a new operations headquarters, but is attacked and killed by homunculi dolls. Meanwhile, Sloth attacks Olivier and Alex again, using his great speed. The other soldiers try to hold Sloth back, but he breaks free. Before he can attack again, however, Izumi arrives and slams him with alchemy. Then she throws him to Sig, who clotheslines him into a wall. The Armstrong siblings are astonished by this display of power. Alex and Sig team up and attack him, throwing him up, and Sloth lands on a spike that impales him. This time Sloth has run out of lives and crumbles away. Underground, Hohenheim confronts Father, suggesting that he created the homunculi out of a need to have a family. Father claims that he wants to become a perfect being. After a short battle, Father is surprised to discover he is unable to utilize the Philosopher's Stone in Hohenheim. Alphonse, Heinkel, Marcoh, and Yoki are in a part of Central when their car gets stuck. The Briggs troops claim victory in occupying Central, when suddenly Fuhrer King Bradley appears again - © Penguintruth, used with permission.


*WARNING*

Please follow these simple rules;

-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, or if required, start a new topic.

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..."

It was on a half hour later than usual.

My initial thoughts:

- Armstrong continues to be awesome.
- I love this bit where the soldiers help out with the chain, showing that the common soldier can make a difference
- Now that's an entrance! Go, Izumi!
- I lol at how overpowered Izumi is, too.
- Aww, poor Sloth. Rest in peace, you lazy bastard.
- That's a lot of excitement for the first ten minutes of the episode.
- Armstrong siblings eyecatch!
- All right, Hohenheim versus Father! FINALLY.
- Oh noes, Hoho-papa!
- Oh, snap. Hohenheim strikes back!
- Hey, Alphonse. OMG, BRADLEY WALKING BY!
- Hooray, they've won the day! They've... oh, wait.
- OH SHI-
- Heeeeeeee's back!

Great episode, and it's going to get even better.


--------------------

Fullmetal Alchemist is over! Thank you, Hiromu Arakawa! ;_;

- The fight at HQ continues. Still too many zombies.
- Finally the Central soldiers can do something useful.
- And Izumi enters the fight. That throw was epic. smile.gif
- Even the Armstrongs are shocked.
- Too bad they left out earlier the first meeting of Alex and Sig.
- Another homunculus is down. Only 3 left. And Father.
- Back to Hoho vs. Father.
- And the epic fight starts. Hoho is awesome. And is that new music?
- Hi Al. We havenít seen you for a while.
- More new music.
- Donít be too happy about winning the fight. Itís not over yet.
- Nice cliffhanger with Bradley's return.
Next ep. will be an action packed one.

-Lost already, huh? tongue.gif
-That "thank you", I liked it. Different from the manga but good in it's own way. And longer. Wow, Scar was moved. But... no Riza's sigh? *sigh*
-This zombie thing does feel dragged on. Curious enough, it didn't seemed so in the manga...
-What an entrance, Izumi. Liked that hollow fist. ^^
-Ho ho ho, muscle power! That music was spot on.
-The shocked-Armstrongs image is exactly the same. But in color. That is, priceless. laugh.gif
-Ah, the throw. Too bad that's as awesome as Izumi is going to get in this finale (so far)...
-The end of this fight felt so rushed... I thought Sloth was tougher. Then again, on paper it didn't seem so.
-Wait. Was that last Sig-Armstrong moment in the manga? o_0 That looked sooo strange...
-Too... many... sparkles... I swear there are way more than in the manga. But now is the time, if any. XD
-Was Buccaneer blushing in the manga after saving those Central military girls??? I don't remember it!!!
-The Briggs army's victory celebration was great. Especially if you think the next thing that happens is Bradley walking toward their door. XD
-All in all, it feels slow. Which is odd, considering that the last two episodes were actually slower. Then again, can't beat Roy's epic rage.

It may seem that I'm complaining, but what really happens is that most of the positive remarks I had on mind about this episode were already written by others. ^^U
Ahhh... Wish that we had some delay on this episode and all afterwards, as some things cannot be judged yet since FMA still goes on... When it's all said and done, I'll surely have to edit some of my comments.

No, but they didn't have one of the girls trying to climb into a window to escape and another sitting on the ground covering her ears.

It was nice to see Al and crew again already, but I thought the scene was kinda weird. Shouldn't Bradley's Ultimate Eye or regular hearing have noticed them?

Good episode, though, I didn't expect Bradley to pop up until next episode. Hopefully, they keep up this pacing.

Mmm, I love that sound. Is there anything that strikes a more beautiful note than the sound of two indomitable wills colliding with each other?

My hale. If that wasn't an awesome episode, I don't know what is.

Izumi, Sig, Olivier, and Alex owned this episode.

(oh yeah, poor Sloth)

Hohenheim vs. Father was awesome. Looks like they're saving the 500,000 revelation for next time. But I did like that they kept in the "You won't defeat US so easily" line.
I loved loved loved the ending. Everything about it. That was perfect biggrin.gif

(and what's up with them spoiling Greedling's return? When I read that in the manga I had no idea it was coming and was shocked to see him)


Did anyone else find it extremely interesting that once again the English DUB tied up with the Japanese episode?
With the dub, we got the introduction of Izumi. And with 55, we got her returning and showing who's boss.

The episodes continue to be f****** damn good.

Armstrongs were bad.
Hohenheim - Father confrontation was bad.
King Bradley's return was bad.

This episode was BAD.

(And I don't mean that in a bad way.)

Everything was as good as it could have been. And probably better still.

I cannot wait for next week. Until then I shall weep a little over the inconsistency of this show.
