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..."

Well, they nailed the desert feel perfectly. You can sense the heat and the dryness. This whole scene looks very nice.

The tank sequence, from beginning to end, was seriously intense. While the change from stairs to tunnel/elevator shaft makes no sense whatsoever - I've been pondering on that since way back - they did handle it really well, and managed to make it awesome nonetheless. I agree with Vagrant about it seeming like something out of a video game, I got Strong MGS vibes tongue.gif

Anyway, even if it was cool enough, I would have preferred had they kept it as it was in the manga. This way, it means that the Greed "reveal" scene later will be different. Also, I felt that fighting in the open space of the stairs, as opposed to the claustrophobic tunnel, contributed with a feeling of unprotectedness, both for Briggs soldiers, and for Bradley, making his feat seem more... not impressive, becaue it was very much so in this episode as well, but... yeah, something.

But more importantly, that way Falman, Buccaneer and the rest of the crowd actually saw all what he did out in there in the open, before approaching, which would make him seem all that more threatening and intimidating.

And I liked Falman using a cannon better than machine guns =/

Nitpicking aside, the scene was very well done. And the following figthing does not dissapoint. This episode made me realize what a bad cat Bradley really is. I mean, I knew it from the manga already, but seeing it animated brings him to another level of awesomeness.

Pretty great episode all in all. Animation was great, and music was used nicely. I particularily like the track playing in the desert, and the creepy "DANGER IS HERE" one when Father turns the tables and Bradley lets all hell lose. Only choice of song I find questionable is the heroic melody when Greed comes to the rescue. That didn't feel entirely right for the scene.

(Found an unusually high quality stream for this episode, and man, this is one of them that demands it XD)
