Talk-back/content discussion for English dubbed episode on Adult Swim starts on page 4.
Please post the discussions on the content of episode 59 here. This thread is declared as a Spoiler zone for the content of the first 59 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..."

Speaking of Scar and Wrath's stare off...
HAHAHA I started to giggle in the middle of it since it went on forever and was so corny.
Scar. Wrath. Scar. Wrath. Scar. Wrath. Scar. Wrath. Getting a bit closer now. Scar. Wrath. Scar. Wrath. Even closer. Scar. Wra--asoijiosjdaisojAAARRGGG-smash-
And also I agree with the scenes that lack in emotion... whether it was the background music or the lines or the angles they took these scenes from it just didn't hit all that hard. Though every time I say that, I get a feeling it's because I already know what's going to happen from reading the manga. =\ BUT Wrath tackling Roy was cool and was animated very well. It was hard to comprehend how exactly that went in the manga, with Roy's blast launching Wrath further and faster toward him. The action was very smooth too.

Why does everyone think Mustang agreed to do human transmutation? O_o What he said at the end of the episode was, "Wakatta," which means "I understand" or "I get it." That's exactly what he said in the manga too. The cliffhanger wasn't that he agreed to do it and then went "just kidding" at the beginning of the next episode. The cliffhanger was supposed to leave us wondering whether or not he WOULD agree to do it. I guess you could argue that it made it seem like a confirmation, but I always thought that line was meant to be ambiguous.
I only watched the RAW of that episode and me with little knowledge of the Japanese language understood that much. He didn't say "Okay" he merely said he understood. Who he understood, he didn't say and that along with the preview would have given non-readers of the manga something to worry about. I mean, the preview showed him at the gate, or at least in a white space looking pretty freaked out. Watchers would assume he did human transmutation willingly. Surprise, guys, he was just raped and forced into it, that's all.
