Okay . I guess its safe to start this thread now . My first post here will question the content of last 2 episodes . I for one feel , that the battle with father will conclude in the first half of episode 63 . . Followed by an extended epilogue , explaining things , much better than the manga . And i'm expecting filler material too . .

I'm betting that 63 and 64 probably won't be too great with art. 64 especially. But the extra episode gives them time to flesh out the last manga chapter a little.
I hope they include things like Al's first sleep or first eat. Like the apple pie.
...that's all I want, really.
Okay, fine, some conclusion on Roy and Riza. I don't really ship anything, but I felt like the manga skimmed over their storyline, and considering that they're so important to the story, I hope that there's a bit more closure.

Since we have an extra episode and that the last one was done rather quickly, I expect some filler material, which I think could be interesting.
I have something clear in my mind: We see everyone tending their wounds (and helping each other, cheesy stuff!): they will move their lips as if they were speaking, but we won't hear their voice, it will simply be the music (either the opening or the ending or an extra song). It could also work for the end of the epilogue: instead of seeing the photos, we see them in "real life" except for the family picture.

Two suggestions from me, really:
1) As others have said, more Roy x Hawkeye. With these two characters as important as they were to the series, it was a bit disappointing to see that even the chimeras got more attention than they did. Some clarification on their status would be nice.
2) This only applies to the dub, but they really should get Aaron Dismuke to play older Al in the final episode. It would be perfect- Al is, what, 17, after the 2 year time skip? Certainly his voice will have matured by then.

Goodbye, Fullmetal Alchemist. Thanks for the memories.
-the manga, characters, story lines, the ending, the Brotherhood series, the first anime and the movie and all things related to it, are the only things that I will always love like how I love my own life.-

That's an excellent idea! I'd love it if Aaron got to play grown!Al in the epilogue. Getting his old role back just for the finale. It's genius.
Everyone's saying there should be more Royai, but to be honest I like it better the way it was done in the manga. Their relationship is so strong and so deep that it didn't really need confirmation; we know it happened. I always saw it as an example of "show, don't tell" in that we know they love each other by their interactions, and I feel that having them come out and say it would cheapen that. It kinda reminds me of what Bradley said about how there's nothing between a king and his partner that requires last words.

There should be more Royai, i mean come on there was only one picture of them in the manga and they were working while Ed and Winry had kids. It was two years so that means they were only 18, what the hell?!
MORE ROYAI PLEASE!!
I don't know who you are. I don't know what you want. If you are looking for ransom, I can tell you I don't have money. But what I do have are a very particular set of skills; skills I have acquired over a very long career. Skills that make me a nightmare for people like you. If you let my woman go now, that'll be the end of it. I will not look for you, I will not pursue you. But if you don't, I will look for you, I will find you, and I will kill you.

I think the final photo montage page was more than two years later. There was the epilogue, where Ed leaves for the west and that was two years after the fight with Father. Then the image was set, I'm sure, a few years after that. Don't quote me on that though.
Anyway, I want more Royai... but... I also don't. I don't deem anything in the anime canon, more like fanservice. No wait, I take that back, I want Royai fanservice... If they're going to spend a whole episode on the epilogue I want to see, as I wanted to see in the manga, things like Ed and Al recovering in hospital, more of Scar, whether Mei and Ling developed a friendship and I also wanted to see Ling return to Xing and present the stone.
