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

Ling is what, 15, 16? I always figured Lan Fan to be around 19 - 20. I don't see a romantic relationship here, even though mutually strong feelings are a given between the two. Not to ruin the mood or anything... we don't know Lan Fan's age, she might be Ling's age, I've just gotten the impression that she's older.
Anyway, yeah, I liked this episode. It carried a lot of emotional weight for me; Ling and Lan Fan - whose actors performed really well btw, especially Ling's, at times I didn't even recognise it as his voice - scenes were great. The sheer sorrow and desperation in Ling's voice sent shivers through my body. Then we have Buccaneer's death. The music here was perfect. And Olivier's reaction to when she hears about it... well, there were a lot of things that got to me.
Not to mention the Greed going full out epicness. He definitely deserved to have that track accompany him ^^ The only complaint would be that it didn't last long enough! And it could have been gorier! Though I love it when he stands on the pile of rubble surrounded by flames, and the camera closes up on the blood dripping from his hand. Even if we didn't get to see it, we can imagine the things he did And everything just screams quality, from the flames, the blood, and not to mention his face. This whole shot was very cool. And the changes involving the elevator worked a lot better than I had imagined.
And I actually thought that Roy's emotion did show well; he didn't scream hysterically - not something I would expect from Roy - and there wasn't as dramatic facial expressions as in a few of the manga panels. But just look at how his face is twitching. I thought it was good. I agree that maybe the situation didn't feel filled with crazy, senseless desperation, but it felt very dire nonetheless. And the cliffhanger was a good way of ending it.
Side note; I compared the voices of Dante from series 1 with her cameo appearance as that old lady in this episode, and no, sorry to say, I'm pretty sure it isn't the same voice actors
