Please post the discussions on episode 17: "House of the Waiting Family" here. smile.gif



Ed, Al, and Armstrong finally make it to Rezembul(?) in order for Ed and Al to recuperate and get fixed up.
Again, most of the ignorant would dare call this episode filler but IMO it just doesn't feel that way.
This is actually one of my favorite episodes because it really teaches you a lot about the Elric brothers and their relationship with Winry and Pinako.

Plus, a big revelation in regards to Al, so let's pay attention.
As for Winry, she's going to look QUITE different from when we last saw her.

I think these are the episodes that make Fullmetal Alchemist the best anime series of all time.

lucky I had two chances to watch this.
it will air at 11:30 pm and 2:30 am.

if I miss this, it will be over for me, because this thursday I need to go to the mall and sleep over in the dorm, and my VCR is broken, and I don't know how to set a timer, so I will not be watching this thursday.

don't forget the humor too

And, what about a wrench thrown from Winry to Ed's head?
That'd leave a mark

I have been waiting for 3 weeks to see this episode.
I saw some screen caps of it, and... theres a picture of a cow! (Sorry >.>)
But thats not the reason I want to see this one. It just looks really good.

Awesome episode!

I haven't been able to watch FMA for several weeks and got excited when I was able to watch it tonight.
Although I've already seen it subbed, I always enjoy watching the dub.

Winry's character is awesome!!
Although I'm not too fond of her English voice.

But yeah Major Armstrong made me laugh hysterically a few times.
I liked the line when he said "I think I'll go chop a year worth's of firewood."

I did notice some dialogue changes from the original version but didn't notice any scenes cut out.

..overall it was awesome!! happy.gif

^ Yeah I thought that going to cahop a years worth of firewood thing was funny to biggrin.gif

It was also pretty funny when the jewels around Armstrong's face finally fell off.

I am so happy I finally got to see this episode.
Although there were a few scenes that did contradict the manga (the one with Al in particular)

I am looking forward to see what the anime is going to come up with My favorite scenes:
* Ed and Al 's talk in the room before Armstrong interrupted them
* Ed and Al beating Armstrong, so cute.

I also was a lot happier with Winry's voice in this episode but that is probably because now that she is older it is alright for her to sound older.

Some highlights others didn't point out:

-The defeat of Armstrong. (his pink stars just kept sparlking the entire time)
-Ed repairs Al.
-Winry asking Ed and Armstrong to mess with their watches. "You guys are so stingy."

Good stuff.
Let's the Am. viewers know and ponder more about Al.
I'm also pretty sure Ed fans must have enjoyed this at least a little...

I enjoyed the conversation between Al and Ed a lot.
I am looking forward to finding out what Ed was going to tell Al.
I can't believe he would keep a secret from him this whole time.
Maybe my opinion will change when we find out what the secret is.

Also, I thought that it was a little weird that Al and Ed would show Armstrong how Al's soul is attached to the armor.
That seems like information that only the two of them should know, you know cause other people knowing about it could lead to Al's death.
ps-There were a lot of topics started in this episode that were left open, so please clearly mark any spoilers for those of us who are not in the know.

This episode reminded me a lot of episode 3 because most of the episode was emotional and the only real action was the Al vs. Ed scene.

These last two episodes were a great break from all the action that was in the the previous few episodes.
I love the action episodes but these kind are the ones that allow you to get to know that characters real well.

ETA: After seeing the episode again, I am a little surprised that Winry's parents were never mentioned by Al or Ed.


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

Ah,... so now I know....

That small, eight-pointed star array, inside of Al's suit of armour-
that's the CONNECTING POINT between Al's SOUL and the ARMOUR itself!

Been wonderin' about that.


And yeah,... great show, by the way.

Aw MAN,... you're not kidding, Dragons04!
I was watching the episode with a couple of friends, and when- from outa nowhere, that WRENCH HIT...
we all yelled: YEEOUCH!!

Honestly,... don't you all think he should've gotten a concussion from a HIT like that?
(NOT WISHING ANYTHING BAD ON THE ELRICS, OR ANYTHING,.. BUT... )
I mean, his skull isn't Automail. THAT HURT!!

I bete did get a WHOPPER OF A LUMP on his head, from the impact,...
but we didn't see it hanging around for the rest of the episode. blink.gif ohmy.gif

Just to let you guys know, you WILL find out what Ed was going to ask Al later on.
This episode should've given you some good hints.

Great episode.

The voice actors captured the emotional and comedic moments beautifully once again, especially Dismuke's Al.

We really understand the pain Al is going through in this episode, and Ed sees that pain and its tearing him apart emotionally as well.

Caitlin Glass I believe is the English voice of Winry and she did a great job as well.

i really liked this episode.
too bad my vcr and tape were being stupid so i could only tape like half of it dry.gif

i was a bit surprised at Winry's voice.
something about it seemed weird at first...

and the fight between Al and Ed and Armstrong was hilarious!
i laughed out loud for the first time at FMA when Armstrong tackled Al.

and Winry had some funny and cute SD facial expressions.

what about the memory?

and yes, that wrench leaves a mark on Ed's head

Did anyone else notice that when Al was still broken his childhood memory's were really blury to him, but when he was repaired they came back? Could this mean that when Al loses parts of his armor he loses parts of his soul?!


--------------------
Thunder is nature's roar,
A herald of what's in store,
It sounds low and high,
telling that a storm is nigh.
Heed lightnings booming voice,
Before you are have no choice,
But to bear nature's loudest cry,
And witness the white fire of the sky.
