Please post the discussions on episode 16: "That Which is Lost" here. smile.gif


Some people might call this and the next episode filler, but if you've been paying attention to Fullmetal Alchemist, I think you may realize by now there is no filler.
There are some interesting developments to say the least, and some great character moments with Major Alex Louis Armstrong smile.gif

Reminder: Fullmetal Alchemist is on a half hour earlier now, not top of the hour.

The crashing deal was funny. Especially with Edward.

Also with Al and that boy. Al: I am the demonic armor... laugh.gif
The sheep...
Armstrong's pink gems. *twinkle*

And about Armstrong. His voice is... alright. Not quite was I was expecting. It's decent VA, that's for sure...
(note the fact this is the first FMA episode I've seen for about two weeks...)

What was scary: Armstrong's bulging muscules.


OT:
Could I get a run-down of what I missed last two episodes? Please PM me or just post it here. I missed the last two episodes. (darn it)
What became of the doctor and that maid? I think I missed it.


Oi, I almost forgot.

What's up with Roy and his little opera singing voice? (second time I've heard it)

I liked that girl in gluttonys mouth, and also I liked how lust was making that soldier horny.
This episode revealed a bit more about the homonucleus.

Al's VA was hilarious tonight, especially his ruse on the young boy.

Christopher Sabbat is doing a great job as Armstrong IMHO.

Next week's episode is one of my favorites.

You didn't miss anything about what happened to Dr. Marcoh and the maid Falling Man...because they never showed us wink.gif .

Al was really funny! Nothing like a good scare to set a kid straight!

I liked Ed's conversation with the grandfather, too.
I really like the perspectives that are brought into the show by the characters.
For example Ed just assumes the the man wants to have an artificial leg so he be more productive.
But the man explains how he has gained more time with and appreciation for his family by not having the leg.

The loss of his leg is also there so he never forgets the things he did and the things that happened.
Things that you would probably want to forget about, but for the sake of history, need to remember.

Although this episode wasn't exactly what I expected there was much to love.

* "Al's "This is the first time I am being treated like a kid" line
* Ed's concern over missing Al
* Ed's discussion with that legless man
* Armstrong in general
* Ed's comment about why Mustang visited the Rockbell's. I loved how they left it open.
* Ed's and Hughes' talk and salute
* Roy's impression of Ed in the beginning of the episode
* The mini fight with Lust and Marcoh, good suspense

I am very excited about the next episode, ep 17 , it covers one of my favorite manga chapters.
But then again I am overly excited about every episode.

Chris Sabat can overact at times but he is a very good voice actor, you just have to look at the range of characters he has played: Vegeta, Piccolo (DBZ), Kuwabara, (YYH), Ayame (Fruits Basket)

Do you guys think maybe Roy just also wanted to see the Rockbell family since he killed Winry's parents?

I think that is exactly right.He feels he needs to make up for what he did IMO.

This episode was alright. I really had my expectations up after last weeks episode.

I thought it is was funny when it started raining and Al said, "No fair rain, I'm the one that wants to cry!" or something like that.

I also liked the fight between Marcoh and Lust, especially when he attacked Lust(that was awesome how he drew the circle in his own blood).

Ed's conversation with the old guy seemed to open his mind up as to all the possibilities of equivilant exchange.

The only thing that I didn't really like about this episode was that a lot of story lines were started really quick and not ended.
But, that will keep me looking forward to next weeks episode.


--------------------
I'm still waiting for Al to rip someone in half.

This show has such subtlety- visual and verbal pauses can really say a lot.
(Ed/Armstrong/Station attendant, Ed/Grandfather, etc.


A few questions and observations (sorry in advance for lameness) biggrin.gif :


1.) What the HECK is LUST, and the rest of the other 7 DEADLY SINS?
Are they human?
They have tattoos, and appear able to do Alchemical Transmutations- BUT ON/IN THEIR BODIES, unlike a "regular" alchemist, who seems to "influence" OUTSIDE OF him/herself.
(I understand revealing a lot of this right now could qualify as one helluva SPOILER, for most of us just starting out with FMA on Cartoon Network... so, if no one answers, well... that's OK.) Just curious.


2.) Al's soul is in the armour, right? Where the heck IS IT, exactly?
I mean,... is it in the amour's METAL? Contained in the EMPTY SPACE inside the armour?
Is it like an AURA, surrounding the armour?
When that kid stole the armour, then put it on- I was, like... WHAT THE... ( ! ), AL'S STILL IN THERE!!
I didn't think anyone could put the armour on, while Al's essence was contained somewhere within it.


3.) You can tell Roy's superior is up to something !
Cliffhangers at the show's end are storyline stock-in-trade,... but, OH MAN, they're KILLERS!
Especially, for a show that seems to go by SO FAST (time flies when yer havin' fun... )
And THEN,.. you gotta wait a whole week for a new episode! (No,.. I'm not complainin')

Yeah, he's up to something... anyone wanna venture a guess?


4.) JEEEEEEEZZZZZSUS!! Is the ARMSTRONG CLAN one HUGE, ONGOING EUGENICS EXPERIMENT!!
Let's lock up Hughes and Armstrong in a room, let them talk to each other about their families- Ad Nauseaum, and let's see who keels over first! blink.gif ohmy.gif tongue.gif biggrin.gif


5.) Yeah,... Al really got to shine- in a really funny light, in this episode! Great!

I also think Ed had a strong, decisive moment of clarity, there at the table, with Gramps.


Ciao.

Patience, everything will be revealed in time.

Al's soul is affixed to the armor like your soul is theoretically affixed to your body.
As to how that works...well you find out next week wink.gif .
