Even if it was a filler recap episode. The last bit where hohenheim is talking to trisha, with Let it all out playing in the background made me shed a tear. Was really nice!

Skipping this episode because it's a filler and judging by everyone's comments it's an exceedingly poor episode.

Despite what some of the opening people (from the thread) said, I really liked this episode. I really enjoyed seeing everything, since 26 episodes really is quite a lot. That ending was the best part, with the Let It Out soundtrack playing.
I like the OP song the least of the three so far, but I don't dislike it. As for the new ED, I place it second of the three ending sequences so far. A little too much Winry in it, though.

LOL my face when I saw this, o_o

How old are the people in MAL?! Do people really care about the OP or ED that much? They're just songs/credits. Who cares about them!

A recap was probably needed in a long TV series after 26 episodes.

Wow, the last 5 minutes, when the previous ED song started playing "Let it all out, let it all out" Damn, from then on it was AWESOME! Glad to see more of Hohenheim here, and his "promise" with Trisha. The first 19minutes was meh. So, we have 2 Hohenheim? Hmm..

Now I am going to miss the previous ED so much.

I'm a bit annoyed it was a recap with kinda important moments. I just planned to skip this ep but I couldn't because of the scene with 'the father(?)' every few minutes. Honestly, I didn't understand what was going on, it was very ambiguous and random.

I liked the ending of this episode, for some reason that song which was playing along with the ending really touched me.

The world really hasn't treated Pinako properly, she's aged really, really badly.

EDIT: The new OP and ED is awful.

Shame it's a recap episode. And it's not even a real recap. They just showed random scenes from all over the place and Hohenheim having a drunk dream.

That was a good recap episode. Well for someone who's doing a marathon, it's not really needed but I got to learn some stuff about Hohenheim. He doesn't seem like a bad person.

It was confusing until you realized Hohenheim was seeing things / dreaming.

I was like, 'what is the timeline for this?!'

New opening and ending song~
A filler, huh. Is that their mom, Trisha?? Just what the fuck is Hohenheim?? Seems like he has a clone or something. Is he human, homunculus, immortal?!?!
Well, I fell asleep after the ending song~

Recap episode, blegh. New OP and ED are way worse than the previous ones. Confused with the timeline of the Hohenheim conversations too. Were they all in his dreams? Oh well, back to the good stuff next episode.

Although a summary, this episode was done so as not to bore the viewer. Hohe finally makes its appearance, not only, new opening and ending, not bad but I preferred the previous ones indeed.

What the hell
Like
I'm rewatching the anime and after this perfect episode I came here expecting everyone to absolutely adore it, same for the OP (which is my favorite along with Period)
Well I guess my expectations were KINDA wrong rotfl
Anyway, absolutely loved the episode, to me this is a perfect recap, as well as probably my favourite episode so far. God do I love this series.

Uhm...I don't get why people are so suprised at Pinako becoming shorter with age.
It happens in real life, actually. Don't you have grandfathers and grandmothers? Don't they have picture of their younger self? People DO become shorter when aging, it's normal.
Of course in anime the thing is exaggerated to the point that they become midgets, but that's just an hyperbole for something that actually happens.
Also, it's pretty common to represent old people as short in anime. Was FMA the first anime those guys ever saw? -_-

About last names, it's not unusual in Japan to take the family name of your mother, for various reasons. Mostly because the family of the mother is more socially relevant (don't forget Japan, unlike western countries, was still in a medieval society since relatively not long ago, therefore such things are still taken into consideration there). The family name of the father may also be rejected by the son due to him having some grudge on the father (that's often the case in anime).

It's so fucking dirty when they have recap episodes mixed with content.

I cant believe people call this the greatest anime ever and give it 10/10
its quite mediocre shonen garbage so far.
Someone died? Dont worry, lets relieve the tension with some slapstick humor. Important battle? Dont worry, nobody ever dies except for boring side characters.

Maybe this is great as one of your first anime. But by now, after all the shit I watched, its garbage.

Hate recap episodes -.-

Also, new OP is very confusing (I didn't read the manga).

And how come Pinako changed from that tall girl into a tiny old woman so quickly while H. looks the same?(I know it was a dream but I remembered Pinako showed Edward and Al a photo of her and Hohenheim at the beginning of the FMAB. She was young in that photo.)

That was actually a good recap episode.
I love how even in Hohenheim's dream Edward was still looking pissed :D

Also Winry looks hot in the new ED.

this was a big recap, but adding on to it with more hohenheim backstory. didn't mind it actually.
new op is catchy, i like this more than the second opening, but the first one is the ultimate one.
i'm still fully expecting the "father" to be hohenheim though

I don't like recaps in general, but this one was quite okay I must say. At least we had some new scenes with Hohenheim and everything was entertaining to watch.

Aside from the new opening and ending which were pretty good, the episode's pretty much a recap with Hohenheim having a really trippy dream about how weak humans are while he tries to deal with some sort of existential guilt brought forth by his immortality.

Granny Pinako sure looked lovely back in the day and that revelation of Father actually being Hohenheim's twin brother, therefore technically being the Elric Brothers' uncle is insane! Alphonse is about to enter the room and confront the Homunculi's big bad daddy for the first time and it's not good.
