THIS IS AN ANIME ONLY DISCUSSION POST. DO NOT DISCUSS THE MANGA BEYOND THIS EPISODE.
----------------------------------------
So it starts with Ling runing away and Ed going after Scar.
Ling/Ran_fan moment :3
Badass Al.

WTF....WTF IS SHE DOING THERE? SHE SHOULD NOT BE HERE? SHE SHOULD NOT BE HERE? SHE SHOULD NOT BE HEREE? SHE SHOULD NOT BE HERE? SHE SHOULD NOT BE HERE? SHE SHOULD NOT BE HERE? SHE SHOULD NOT BE HERE? SHE SHOULD NOT BE HERE? SHE SHOULD NOT BE HERE? SHE SHOULD NOT BE HERE? SHE SHOULD NOT BE HERE? SHE SHOULD NOT BE HERE? SHE SHOULD NOT BE HERE? SHE SHOULD NOT BE HERE? SHE SHOULD NOT BE HERE? SHE SHOULD NOT BE HERE? SHE SHOULD NOT BE HERE? SHE SHOULD NOT BE HERE? SHE SHOULD NOT BE HERE? SHE SHOULD NOT BE HERE? SHE SHOULD NOT BE HERE? SHE SHOULD NOT BE HERE? SHE SHOULD NOT BE HERE? SHE SHOULD NOT BE HERE? SHE SHOULD NOT BE HERE? SHE SHOULD NOT BE HERE? SHE SHOULD NOT BE HERE? SHE SHOULD NOT BE HERE? SHE SHOULD NOT BE HERE? SHE SHOULD NOT BE HERE? SHE SHOULD NOT BE HERE? SHE SHOULD NOT BE HERE?

I don't remeber Riza thar too -___-
The Eyecatch scenes sucked too.
Al scene :3
And so Ling reveals the truth about Bradeley, sadly that does not matter...

ANd so Gluttony Decides to take his revenge against Mustang, opening his True Form.

A so-so episode, considering the anime-original scenes they inserted.
Did they include the arm-dog scene and "Maybe i was in love the whole time"?

IF yes then 4/5.
If no then 3/5.


P.S. DId preview REALLY Have to include THAT character? -.-

- The Ranfan eyecatch was adorable.

- Speaking of which, seeing Ranfan getting fixed up by Dr. Knox hit me a lot harder than in the manga thanks to her seiyuu.

- I'm glad we finally got to see the awesome and more serious side of Ling.

- Mei was crazy fast in escaping, never really noticed that before.

Yes those scenes were included in the manga. That was actually one of the better scenes this series did (i don't know, i find the manga more exciting and the anime is more passive...)

Ranfan/Lin scene :3
Dr.Knox fixing her shoulder really is more intense than in the manga.

oh boy, can't wait to see Gluttony out of control, and more =)

Great episode, I've waited Ling was strong, but it's always a surprise to see the "blooming" of the characters idiots. The real form of Gluttony is amazing, this anime makes me want to that the episodes come out every day xD

I'm guessing those who didn't see it live watched the RAWs which are relatively easy to follow when you know the manga well and have very, very basic comprehension of Japanese.

For someone who has never read the manga I thought the ending was a huge "WTF TEETH?!?!?" moment. I saw that in the new intro a few episodes back when they changed it and was like "WTF TEETH?!?!?" but thought nothing of it since they often show scenes in the intro that don't happen in the show.

Additionally if he has a "True Form" and can use it, why did lust not use her "True Form" to rapeify Mustar--err Mustang? Is that explained later? If so I'd rather not know.

AND MANGA READERS PLEASE FOR THE LOVE OF GOD STOP COMPARING STUFF IN THE MANGA TO THE SHOW BECAUSE THEY'RE FULL OF SPOOOOILERS. DO YOU KNOW WHAT SPOOOOOILERS ARE CHILDREN?

Spoilers are when I say "9 was a great movie but I don't remember number 2 dying in the short story version of the fil--OH SHI!! DID I JUST RUIN THE MOVIE FOR YOU GUYZ? LOLOLOLOL"

Me, as Winry is getting on the train: "Wait is this...?"
Me, as Winry is waving goodbye: "Omg, it is!"
Me, as Winry finally says it: "FUCK YES."

Why is everyone in this series so damn badass? Seriously.
Great episode. Love the Ran Fan arm thing and Ling hogtying Gluttony.

I thought this was a great episode. I was all over the board emotionally, from yelling at Ranfan when she pulled her trick to sniffling at Winry. I've not read the manga so this is all new to me and it's doing an excellent job keeping me on the edge of my seat and getting me emotionally involved with the characters so much more than the first series did. FMA:B, I love you.

I liked this ep. How long is FMA Brotherhood supposed to be? I really don't think they can cram a satisfying conclusion into 3 eps to have a regular episode amount.

Good episode but I hope the series starts to pick up speed a bit now because it's been a bit too slow paced for my liking.

Haha yeah, started to laugh when that panda thing realised Alphonse is above them xD

Can't wait to see Gluttony in the next episode, he looked pretty wicked.

Soo, here we go, another episode in this already awesome series : 3
In general, great episode, as always lately : D

I don't really feel like writing anything else much now though, since I have a test in Japanese tomorrow, and I have to study. (Yeah I count anime as studying Japanese! : D) Maybe I'll write something on of the coming days, or at least respond to some other post if I find it arguable enough x)

Oh one thing though, goddammit Ling is actually cool! xD
And so is May : D

Still.. Was that actually what Ed said? Guess we might get to know sometime : o Wait What?! What was Winry thinking there? O.O Gee, or well.. actually, I was wating for that : 3

Gluttony goes *RAAAAAAAAAAAAGE* O.o

And I seem to have written more than I was going to ^^,
Anyway, epic ED is epic, kthnxbai

I have seen Higurashi (uncut dvd version) and Elfen Lied.
This is way more gory then those. It is not at sick as those animes, but it shows alot more blood and the gore looks way more realistic then in Elfen Lied and Higurashi.

It's still unnecessary, and also (somewhat) spoiler for those who want to read the manga later.

That. Average episode, if it isn't for the awesome ending and cliffhanger.

It was an OK episode - lots happened but I felt it jumped around a lot in random directions. For example, one moment, we have the epic battle between Scar and Ed and Al. Then, it jumps to Ling and Bradley and then cuts to Ran Fan in the sewers. Then it cuts to Gluttony and Ling joining in on the battle with Scar. We also have Riza and Mustang in and out in the first half. Then Mei randomly appears to save Scar...and then we have a car scene with Ed, Al, and the panda, meeting with Winry, a small bit of Winry development with the phone call, train and love realization scene, etc. etc. It all just felt "all over the place" rather than following one (or just a few) direction(s).

Or...maybe I'm just tired as hell and so confused by life in general that I can't quite follow things as I normally can....

I loved Winry's train revelation. It was just so simple and sweet. It's kind of funny how when I watched the first FMA anime, I did not like Winry at all, and then once I picked up the manga and Brotherhood, I started to love her character, especially in the manga. :) Her and Riza are definitely two of my favorite female characters in anime.

Looooove Lin. Man I could just hug him. I can't wait for the next few episodes with his character development.

Totally excited for the next episode (or for however long it carries out.) It was some of my favorite parts of the manga.

I'm with Aeterna and Jacut...just ok. I totally forgot about Panda-girl, so I was very angry when she showed up out of nowhere after how many episodes? I just wanted Ran Fan to kill herself since she hasn't really been useful at all, and I really want Scar dead because he's such a distraction from the main story. Gluttony and his stomach is a really stupid concept, so I'm hoping this marks his doom so I don't have to hear him whine about Lust anymore.

The only character who really looks like they've developed at all from the start of the series is Al, which makes me happy because he's doing everything I hoped he be capable of; on the flipside, everyone else is mind bogglingly stagnant.

Winry's, "Oh, I'm in love with him." Was just so dumb and uninspired. I hate her so much more than the first series where she was more of a nuisance.
