I have been waiting for this episode since they skipped past it in the original season. Mustang's BAMF-ness is without a doubt my favorite part of the manga, and now the anime. Love it.

I'd forgotten how epic that part was lol. Very nicely done episode, even if they did cut out Ranfan and Ling's involvement in the battle. Great animation when Roy was killing Lust, Roy epicness all left intact, and they FINALLY showed how cool Alphonse can be. Seriously, I've been waiting for a really great Al moment in this anime; FMA1 killed off his personality horribly. Plus, Havoc. Poor guy; stabbed in the back by the chick he was dating. He really does have a crappy time with girls lol.

Only thing that bothers me is that the lack of the Ranfan and Ling battle with Envy and Gluttony can cause a few problems later on. That was the battle that


Spoiler'd for those that haven't read the manga and want to, and also that the thing I said will probably happen in future episodes. I hope so at least.

Very good episode other than that though. Roy epicness is always epic. <3 Definitely one of his best moments throughout FMA.

FUCK YEAH MY FAVOURITE EPISODE

(screencap under spoiler)


I will even excuse them for cutting out the Ling and Ran Fan moments (IMO, the pacing still fails).

I am really really disepointed: ( The lust battle was awsome but they cut out envy from the whole episode! Envy is my fav character from fma. And they cut out ling vs gluttony: (
So it will be an 4 from me.

Favorite Episode of the season so far. I haven't read the manga so this episode was just full of so much win....so much happened in one episode and I was almost crying with Riza till Mustang showed up.

My friend is holding me back from reading the manga because he likes being the one who knows what's going to happen for once but after that episode....I don't think I can hold off much longer.

Wah they killed off Lust, they are proceeding quickly. I don't mind though.
I love the extra instrumental phase into the credits though.

Fire! Fire! FIRE! BURN!!!

Saying Mustang is badass would be an understatement.

Seriously, great episode, everything was nicely done and I loved every bit of it. I seriously laughed hard during the scene with Alphonse and Winry at the end.

I absolutely loved it. It was full of action and it ended with style. Mustang standing firmly to the very end... what a scene! i think this episode is where it starts to get interesting for the fans who havent read the manga. because the plot really starts to deviate from the previous series.

Most epic episode of both FMA series, hands down. The intensity and dynamism of the animation and direction in the fights and all scenaristic developments was simply unbelievable. And Hohenheim appears at the end of the episode on top of that.

In every age, in every place, the deeds of men remain the same.

This episode BLEW my mind XD!! Opening scene was great!

I loved Hawkeye's breakdown - it was very fresh in the sense that I've never seen her cry like before (since I didn't read the manga and I believe she didn't cry at all in FMA1)

Havoc and Barry TT__TT...

Roy definitely stole the spotlight this episode :3 ~!! <3

And I loved the ending cliffhanger with a beautiful and smooth transition of the ending song *nods*

Can't wait till next week again :P

Omg, you have such a selfish friend. What right does he/she have to determine whether or not you can read the manga, don't listen to him/her >=(!! Read the manga if you want to!! I support this!!

Greath fight. Roy was pretty badass and Al was badass 2. Liza Hawkeye was awesome!

Poor Barry R.I.P.

Mustang really overruled this episode. He was epic, awesome, bad-ass and hot. Do want a wallpaper of him of this episode.

Mustang kicks incredible amounts of ass. Lust was great, Havok was sad... love that supporting characters can actually be killed off in battles, shows actual plot movement.

Really good episode. It was kind of spoiled by the randomness of the Barry and Hohenheim scene at the end, but entertaining nonetheless. Shame Lust had to die, but I guess that's more of my attachment to her from the first series than this one speaking.

As much as I like Al here more than in the first show, he's almost equally useless. He can do alchemy without a circle, and basically only manages to create a spear, and then be an iron shield for Riza. I really wish they'd do more with him.

Hell yeah, this episode was amazing. I loved this part in the manga, and seeing it in anime form was just as entertaining. Roy is the man.

Holy fucking shit! Roy Mustang was even more awesome in this episode, and I didn't even think that was possible. He was more badass, manly, and garish in this episode than he was in all of the original FMA. Seriously, he fucking rocks my socks.

The massive level of Roy's manliness made me forgive the fact they took out the Ran Fan-Ling vs. Envy-Gluttony scenes.

exactly my thoughts. The new series is pretty good but it feels a bit rushed. It gets -1 for badpacing
"...our faces marked by toil, by deceptions, by success, by love; our weary eyes looking still, looking always, looking anxiously for something out of life, that while it is expected is already gone – has passed unseen, in a sigh, in a flash – together with the youth, with the strength, with the romance of illusions.” - Joseph Conrad ('Youth')

LOL. I liked how Havoc and Roy just ran from Lust like a bunch of pussy's. Roy is and always will be useless in the rain.

But dude...Lust is a crazy bitch. Holy shit.

Honestly, the episode was a lot better without these scenes. Ran Fan and Envy would have come from nowhere, and the scenes would have been a distraction from the direction, focus and pacing of the show, which was great. Besides, those scenes serve a purpose and could be inserted/adapted later on, they aren't pertinent plot points.

The Barry end scene could only be done in this episode, and was pretty ironic, even a little sad. Hohenheim was an obviously important segue to episode 20. The spear was very useless, but Lust would have cut/pierced through anything Al could have created, it's not as if he could easily create fire like Mustang.

Details please, as to why this episode was badly paced. I don't understand.

I don't think the Barry scene was necessary, unless his body comes back for something, but even then, that surprise is gone. His "death" earlier was much better, and the end just takes away from that.

As for Hohenheim, I know it's important, but it was random nonetheless, and incongruent to the tone of the episode. Maybe they should have done it in 18.

That was important too. Plot important.

Thats because the anime studio tends to cut out all Al scenes...Which is sad...really...

As for Hohenheim stuff, blame anime rearrangement...

In the manga:
First we have the whole Lust/Mustang/Havoc stuff (alongside the cut out Envy/Gluttony/Pride/Ling/RanFan/Fu encounter) in the underground.
Then we have Ed at Xerxes plot, which latter culminates with him meeting Hohenheim at Risembool.

If they did all according to manga, Hohenheim scene would not feel so...out of place.
