Talk-back/content discussion for English dubbed episode on Adult Swim starts on page 2. smile.gif


Please post the discussions on the content of episode 56 here.
This thread is declared as a Spoiler zone for the content of the first 56 episodes.

As exciting as the release of chapter 107 is, do not mention any spoilers here please.

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 Broken Chouchou's post

Summary: Hohenheim reveals that he is working in tandem with the souls residing in himself, surprising Father. Father is attacked by the souls he took into himself from Hohenheim, but sheds his mortal shell, becoming a black phantom, resembling his flask form. Above, Fuhrer King Bradley/Wrath attacks the Briggs troops, making quick work of Buccaneer. However, Greed appears before he can attack Falman. The news of the Fuhrer's return are relayed to Mrs. Bradley at the radio station. Mustang's subordinates are forced to blame the coup on Major General Armstrong. Greed engages in battle with Wrath, with Buccaneer returning and taking Bradley's sword from him (by being impaled with it). Central troops move into the HQ, but are taken out by Fuu, who then comes to the aid of Greed and the others.

*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..."

My initial thoughts:

- It's great that they're keeping the flashback to Hohenheim being found by the Xingese.
- Hohenheim is so awesome.
- Father's Truthy form!
- Poor bastards. They have no chance in hell against Bradley.
- Aw, poor Falman.
- Greed returns! That's weird music to use for it, though.
- Seems like their giving Mustang's underlings more to do than in the manga, even
- Ol' Bradley has the moves.
- Get 'em, Greed!
- What's with this filler material? Get back to Greed!
- Okay, there we go.
- Oh hey, old man Fuu!

Can't wait to see this in better quality.

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

- Oh, we start with the Hoho flashback that was in chapter 97.
- More Xerxes flashbacks. Too much explaining.
- Bye-bye, old Father. Here comes the creepy monster with the eyes.
- Back to Bradley. Wow, the animation is awesome.
- Poor Buccaneer and Falman.
- And here comes Greed.
- I don’t remember that much talking at the Radio Station in the manga.
- And the Bradley vs. Greedling fight starts. The animation is still great. But Bradley is too strong.
- Nice entrance from Fuu with great music.
- It’s already over? The preview was too short.

Thanks for the screens Broken Chouchou. Man, I usually only look at the screens now and barely watch the episodes. =\

Oh yeah and since this scene's pretty horific, I thought I'd post it here so everyone can see it in all it's glory

Some strange changes (tank in the tunnel, added filler scenes, etc) but overall a very entertaining action packed episode. No single moments of animation that were quite as good as the Greedling vs Wrath stuff in 45, but still overall great animation wise.

Ended exactly where I expected it too though, which is unfortunate but since next episode is titled "Eternal Rest" then it couldn't really have went any further.

Lookin at the first few minutes of the episode , and a few seconds of the bradley fight , makes me feel that this episode has a really fast pacing . . . Just like how the manga was paced . . . Extremely quick . . . I mean even arakawa raced thru this portion of the manga . . . And actually , its a good thing that bones has paced this episode perfectly . . Great place to end the episode too . . .
And great to see this episode subbed early . .

Remember Selim was left behind when Al, Marcoh, etc escaped in the car from the battle. He's quite a distance outside the city and not all Homunculus have super speed to get anywhere instantly!

So there's absolutely nobody who could have given him a ride? But then, this just makes me wonder if he's going to burrow directly to the underground lair with his slicer tentacle things.

And thus Brotherhood proves to me again why it is I love Wrath. My HECK, that was an amazing episode. The entire tank scene was screaming bad A.

Ooooh! Loved the music playing at the very beginning. Dark and solemn... I remember it from when Ed was inside Gluttony's stomach. Father was scary and warped enough in the manga... animated, he is the stuff of my nightmares! O_o

The tank in the tunnel thing was actually pretty cool! Maria and Kain's conversation was nice too, even if it wasn't in the manga exactly. I will appreciate it just as long as manga scenes aren't cut in the future with time running out... AHHH!!! It's almost over!! *smacks self on head* Calm down... calm down...

Greelin's return was full of hair-in-the-wind glory! The music when he entered made him sound like a hero. Bradley was more than epic of course, and Buccaneer proved to us all that he is the manliest man around. Fuu was a wicked ninja... Heck even Falman was awesome! I think all the other guys of FMA are trying to prove that they can be amazing without Ed, Al, and Roy around!

I believe this episode gets the award for most blood. laugh.gif

Yeah, it was a bloody good fun-fest. And you can TELL they still had to censor things. Like Bradley getting all those briggs guys (the 2nd group) They didn't show the people actually falling apart. They chose a camera angle on the sword.

I think one of my favorite scenes was Bradley toying with the knives. It's so simple, but so bad A.
