Talk-back/content discussion for English dubbed episode on Adult Swim starts on page 5. smile.gif

Please post the discussions on the content of episode 62 here.
This thread is declared as a Spoiler zone for the content of the first 62 episodes.

Please do not discuss Chapters 63-64 here. For discussion on the final two episodes go here if you HAVE read the manga...and here if you HAVE NOT.

If for any reason I feel your post contains spoilers for Chapter 108 or the next two episodes, I will edit your post. Please understand this is nothing personal, it is for the benefit of all members

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 divinespirits post.

Summary: Father creates more Philosopher's Stone by taking the souls of soldiers, but Hohenheim, Alphonse, Izumi, and May arrive to stop him. Father distracts the group by creating humans with the souls of the people inside of him, and then unleashes an enormous energy blast that a late Edward also gets caught in. Meanwhile, Greed recruits a group to go fight Father, including Roy, Riza, Alex, and Ranfan. Olivier finds out from Scar that Bradley was already mortally wounded when he fought him, thanks to Buccaneer. When the dust clears from Father's blast, it appears Alphonse has shielded May at the cost of massive damage and Hohenheim shielded Izumi and Edward. The Briggs soldiers attack Father and Roy and the others arrive to join them. Eventually Father starts to lose control of "God" inside of him and requires more Philosopher's Stone again. He staggers towards a wounded Edward, but Alphonse decides to use Rentanjutsu and sacrifice himself to restore Edward's arm. At the Doors of Truth, Alphonse's soul and body unite and the Truth loses Ed's arm. Edward's arm restored, he attacks Father on his own, with everyone cheering him on. - © Penguintruth, used with permission and taken 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..."

I'm a (little lot) late as I've saved the latest eps to watch at the same time.
I just have to say that I though the animal in Roy's flame was a boar at first. >.>
And that I like how they added Al screaming more than in the manga when Ed was pinned (and he even cursed!? ("kuso") I can't remember that happening before...), and then talked calmly when asking for Mei's help. It really made him seem more determined. (And in between, he halts, and you see that lightningeffect that they use for him, that looks like a tear running down his cheek... ;__;)

I really liked the lightning when Father "gave birth" and when Roy used his flames. It was very pretty and, how-do-you-say...splendiferous... (yes, yes, Online Dictionary, that's exactly the word I was looking for...I can't even say it!! XD)

Other parts seemed a bit too clean. Compare top panel with episode, but that's just how Brotherhood does it, and belongs in a more general thread. But the shot of Al sitting in front of Mei to protect her from Father's huge blast (that burnt the old Xerxesians to ashes) was VERY detailed and dirty and awesome and *gasp* (dare I say it) better than the manga-panel!! (Even though Xiao Mei creeped me out when she squeaked.)
And I liked Izumi's swords, cause Al used one fighting Pride. Makes you remember that she taught them practically everything they know about combat-alchemy!

And I am straight as an arrow, but still think Hawkeye have been looking smoking hot these last episodes!! Especially the eyecatch, when Roy asked her if she still can fight and when Roy made the stone-wall to protect them from Father's fire blast. Acctually, that light made everyone look totally droolworthy (from an artistic point of veiw. I mean if I will ever be able to draw like that...!!) And Ed has been very well-drawn and animated as well, and even inthe middle of fights his face have not been distorted or weird-looking---well execpt those last minutes! XD Ah, well he acctually has his facial features in the right place for the most of the time there too...

Absolutely adored Ed's reaction to Al's transmutation. So intense. I just love those two. ;_;
It was übercute and reminded me of the Beauty and the Beast when Al's body grabbed two of armour!Al's finger!
Oh, and I had forgotten that Al's Gate!armour/soul/whatever that is you in front of the Gate/ dissolved, and that was beautiful, especailly when Al sat there with a fascinated look on his face.
And the changed Al's weirdlooking eye, haha! Yokatta! He was so pretty!! *squea!!!* And he just waits there, and trusts Ed, but what if he doesn't come, would he just sit there forever until he starvs...? And Ed goes ballistic, and THAT was great to see. *squea!!* (But I agree on that the arm should have been animated in place.) Even though I'm not a great fan of the weird faces and Mr. Fantastic-limbs, it made him seem really crazy with anger, fury and desperation and Father was really ruthlessly plummeted to the groud. It was awesome. And then you see Greeling for two seconds just staring and it makes me lol!
Aww, Greed...

Ok, this turned into quite a long post! laugh.gif
