Talk-back/content discussion for English dubbed episode on Adult Swim starts on page 4. smile.gif

Please post the discussions on the content of episode 58 here.
This thread is declared as a Spoiler zone for the content of the first 58 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 Michiyo's post.

Summary: Edward finds himself going through the same experience he had when he saw the Gate of Truth as the gold-toothed doctor's array is activated. Greed and Wrath fight fiercely, until they end up hanging from a high spot. Ranfan grabs Greed's hand. Briggs soldiers shoot Bradley and he drops into the water below. Helped up by Ranfan, Ling is devestated that Fu is already dead. Central soldier open fire on him. Ling lets Greed come out in full-force by a dying Buccaneer's request and takes on Central soldiers. Buccaneer dies with a smile on his face. Olivier is informed of the status at the front gate of Central HQ, and decides to continue down the stairs into the basement. In the depths of Central, Edward and Izumi materialize in Father's lair, where he has disabled Hohenheim. Father is disappointed that a fifth sacrifice has yet to be prepared. The gold-toothed doctor has Riza Hawkeye seriously injured in hopes Roy will peform a human transmutation, and he seems to give in. - © Penguintruth, taken with permission from his blog.


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..."

Alright, I recently had a chance to view this episode in a more, um, reliable format wink.gif

A few further observations are in order:

1. I thought Ling's voice-actor did a great job with his dramatic scene and the directorial build-up to the full-on Greed mode was great. Despite the fact that we've heard it several times before, I actually enjoyed the musical selection for that moment; the slightly mournful, resigned flute solo went well with Buccaneer's last moments, adding to the sense that these characters might really die defending the main gate. Greed ling's agony, Buccaneer's slow demise, Falman and co. running out of ammo - it was a poignant scene.

2. Was that bit of Lan Fan's tears mingling with her blood in the manga? If it was, I certainly don't recall it, but it was a great touch nonetheless. Lan Fan's voice actress continues to do an incredible job with these dramatic scenes. The moment where she tells Ling that Fuu has died was heart wrenching.

3. Wow, brutal throw by Bradley - Fuu's sword stuck straight into that Briggs soldier's bone! If I recall the manga panel correctly, it was just a glancing blow - this version was far more graphic (odd considering the censoring Greed's fight endured...maybe because he's supposed to be a 'good guy' now?). Not that I'm complaining; if any character in this series earns his ultra-violence, it's Bradley. Like PenguinTruth commented earlier, that guy just doesn't give up!

I'm seriously considering making a compilation of all the instances of characters screaming BRAD-O-LEEEE in this new series. It's becoming his trademark. laugh.gif
