Alright guys, here's our discussion thread for episode 23 of the series airing tonight. Tonight we see the aftermath of the 5th Laboratory incident and Ed and Al's encounter with the Homunculi. Ed is in the hospital nursing his injuries, while Al is severely damaged both physically and mentally since he now believes that his soul and memories are no longer real.

Anyway, these next two episodes are a HUGE blowoff to something that's been noticeably building up in the series.

Even if Scar does die, *which somehow I doubt* then put it in a spoiler box.

Wow, if thats true that is quite a spoiler as I and many others havent seen this episode yet.

I saw 1 AMV with clips from this episode (I am almost sure) and I really wanted to see what happens. Now I get to, hurray for me! I love episodes with plot development over action, though both is always good. wink.gif This looks to be my kind of episode. I cant wait!

I hope you guys kept your eyes peeled to see the two new crucial characters that were briefly seen tonight.

I know who you are talking about, I was very excited when I saw them biggrin.gif <3 <3 <3


Anyways I really liked this episode (although I liked the manga chapter more). Everyone's performance was top notch. My only complaint is Elysia sounded way too old. Oh well, she is a minor character anyways.

Well, it's one a.m. I am sickened. That's the only word to describe. Al made me sick. Smacking Ed around. Good old Winry, Hughes... Elysia was too cute. But Al. Al had to go off and be an idiot, and not listen to Winry or Ed. No, he had to go off an break Ed's heart, didn't he?

As for two new characters, yup-o ;D.

Well the two crucial characters are just in the crowd of the train station, so it's hard to know which ones they are. Well, look for distinctive clothes, I guess.

And there really isn't any build-up, just some episodes to take a break from the heavy stuff.

Also... Elysia-chan dies...very violently...
I mean c'mon the, producers are twisted. No little girl EVER lives past puberty in this show. If you think what happens to Elysia-chan is twisted, just WAIT until you see the episodes about the alchemy-cult.


































Gave you a heart-attack didn't I? I have fun at your expense.

But here's a little hint of things to come. Highlight to see, it won't ruin that much anyway, but just in case don't read it.
QUOTE

Hughes gets to become semi-important to the story-line.  And we all know what happens when a minor character gets thrown into the razor-sharp and rusty blades of the ceiling-fan of fate.  Imagine a turd if you would, thrown upwards...and it hangs in the air for an eternal moment...and...
Elysia-chan never actually dies, I was just tormenting you needlessly.

I know, I'm a bastard, giving you guys false hope and then yanking it away.
To those who didn't read the box: False Hope? What do you mean? Elysia-chan doesn't die does she? Does she? You can put your mind at rest, IF you read the blank box's hint. The answer lies in the Pandora's Box above. It's dark mystery beckons to you...I do so love elaborate torture.

Damn those FMA writers, I should have known that they would leave us hanging until next week. I really liked how Al was really blunt and "mean" whenever he answered a question. I also liked when Hughes explained to Winry that she is the one that the boys will talk to if they ever break down.
It was so sad when Al knocked Ed down and Ed was like, "Alphonse" real emotional like, and then you could tell that Al was sorry.


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

Awesome episode where things that have been building up for quite some time finally come to a head.

There was a noticeable change in the English voice acting. Al was a lot more aggressive, venomous, and angry in the hospital when he spoke. "Drink the dumb milk." In the Japanese version he's very thoughtful, and somewhat...internally sad. He doesn't really become scary and angry until the end of the episode where Ed tries to fix him. But I liked this approach in the episode, it was different, and they made it work.
