I've been looking forward to this episode for too long now, hope it doesn't disappoint me : /
Why, the OP got a little bit better since last episode, even if it's the same x)

Oh What The HE-!? Looked pretty sweet when Ed 'n' Ling with Envy in tow came out of Gluttony xD

Hahaha 'Father' disabled their alchemy x)

D: Greedling : o And he's even got a new voice ;_;

And Xiao Mei got disappointed xD

And yeah, why can Xiao Mei and Scar use alchemy while Ed and Al can't? O.O

Sooo did Ling reawake a litthe there by the end?

As usual, can't wait for next episode >.<
Protip: I don't really check the forums anymore, so if you want something, take it on my profile.
Is it time for my long-awaited return to the forums? щ(゚Д゚щ) Nope™, probably not.

That was awsome, never fails to impress this series, I find it to be a wonder. Where does the mythology derive from for all the signs and hand signals for the alchemy. So I guess Hofenheim is not their "Father" it really is some mysterious guy, the animation was brilliant, it was so good. When Scar arrived it increased its epicness. Looking forward to next week!

...I believe Xiao Mei could never use alchemy, cause it's a panda XD Lol. You meant Mei Chang, I think.

Nanakogin said:
BTW, don't you guys love the graphics for Envy ? I mean, it's so fluid and always moving and all, not like sometimes in anime where the character is talking or something and stays as still as a rock T_T

I have to agree with that. I actually prefer that Envy over the human-like one xP

Absolutely fantastic episode. Makes up for last week's recap in so many ways.

Interesting that they decided to put the last Father/Gluttony scene after the credits. Not sure I would have done the same.

And motherfuckin' Greedling! About time! That whole sequence completely exceeded my expectations.

I'm starting to get sick of the little girl and her stupid panda, though. I've read the manga, but I don't remember if she's important in any way beyond explaining alkahestry later.

Speaking of which, I know that in Japanese alchemy is "renkinjutsu," while Xing's form (usually referred to as "Eastern alchemy" in fan-translations of the manga, or in episode 2 of "Brotherhood" as subbed by Eclipse) is "rentanjutsu." If I remember right, the "official" English form of "rentanjutsu" is "alkahestry," which is how it's translated in the Funimation streaming version of episode 2.

So, do you think that Eclipse is going to change "Eastern alchemy" to "alkahestry," like they changed "exchange of equivalences" (or whatever) to "equivalent exchange" or "Ran Fan" to "Lan Fan," or will they just keep calling it "Eastern alchemy" (which is, IMO, much more awkward than alkahestry)? The difference between alchemy and alkahestry becomes very important later on ...

Anyway, I can't wait to see the Ishbal flashback that's coming up. Hell, who am I kidding, I'm can't wait to see the whole rest of the series!

Hurray, finally Greedling <333333
I was pleasantly surprised that they used Greed's voice, I had never originally pictured Ling's voice changing when he transformed into Greed. I dig it though! I can't get over how Envy's true form movement seems so fluid when it's animated...

Now that one of my favorite characters has been introduced (reintroduced?) I can't wait for Briggs...

Good episode and nice fluent animation. Although I hope they won't use another voice for Ling's, Miyano is doing a perfect job with it.

I always expected they'd stick with Miyano's voice with a more villainous tone for Greed-Ling, so this is gonna have to take some getting used to. Other than that, good episode, stuck to the manga, etc.

Alright episode but could have been better imo, especially after the recap episode. However, as far as purely action driven episodes go this was pretty decent.

Ling no longer sucks, yay!! This series has made some major improvements from the shitty summary start they had. I'm still not happy with the random jokes they toss in at serious parts. It totally kills the mood :(. Should be interesting to see how Ling and Greed coexist in one body.

Like you couldn't guess from previous hints and some not so subtle ones (such as the new op)?

Good episode. Hope things continue like this for a while. And no more Ling makes me sad. :( At least Greed is back.

Pretty good episode really..
Ling transformation as Greed was handled fairly...
Poor May Chang..her dream was crushed :(
Father is damn strong...he can nullify alchemist with no guts
I don't think that Ling is gone forever...maybe he's waiting opportunity to reclaim his body
Waiting for the next episode... ^_^

I was seriously like this the entire episode -> O.o
Not exaggerating. Oh, and I do believe, "Holy sh**" slipped out a few times, too.
In other words, awesome episode. :D This episode definitely made up for last week's.

Wah, I want Ling back. I miss him and his old voice.

Can't wait for the coming episodes though. Reading the manga makes me want to see how the show does it even more.

badass ep!!!

Ling "Don't interfere!" .. it's rly sad 2 say goodbye for ling T_T .. n Ling/Greed with greed's voice didn't rly sound right 2 me ((guess we'll have to get used 2 it laterz on)) *yea, my guess from last ep was correct in this .. Ling became a Humonculus >_>*

Hope Ling would be able to make a comeback again ... or I meant 2 say .. Bring MY REAL LING BACK!! >_<"

the Humonculi's Father was powerful like hell ...

n Ed u shouldn't break the heart of a lil' girl, midget xDD (that was one of the funny moments in this ep n May's vision was like, rofl!!)


5/5 ep!

n looking forward to more~

Ed and Al going to Wrath (a.k.a: Fuhrer President King Bradley) .. that's gonna be something ...

n the after ed song, "No worries, my son. I'll recreate u. with ur memories, of course."

seems like we'll be getting a lot of badass eps soon (if) it didn't start already from this ep =)

Fck yeah! Just when you think it can't possibly get any better :D; I'm sad to see Ling go but I'm pretty sure he lurking inside there somewhere. He's my favorite character in Brotherhood. Also when Ed mentioned Lan Fan, there was this moment and this new Greed showed some of Ling's mannerisms. Greed is welcome back anytime though. He was my favorite character in the first anime. So I'm kinda confused about this situation.

It was cute to see Shao May trying to protect May Chang fom Gluttony :P :P
...and Chang's response on seeing Edward lol

I also hoped they'd show what's going on with Hawkeye and Mustang and the others. I guess we'll see that next week maybe.

I'm curious if I'm the only one who thinks Father showed an expression when he said he'll recreate Gluttony. He said son didn't he? Maybe I'm just speculating too much but we'll see.

Overall, I loved the action. This was an explosive comeback after the recap episode. I guess that's one reason why I liked this episode so much. The next one looks like it will be a quiet one. Last thing, the way they showed Ed/Ling/Envy come out of Gluttony was awesome and so was Ling's transformation into Greed.

Oh hey, are we missing Sloth?

10/10; Brilliant episode this one.


*EDIT: Was Scar really talking about the Elrics when he said they're working with the Homunculi? Wasn't that kinda stupid seeing as how Ed/Al were practically being crushed under Envy's hands... paws...

He said that they *weren't* working with the homunculi - he'd thought they might be when he saw them together in the alleyway last episode (er, the one before the recap), but seeing them pinned down by Envy made him realize he was wrong.

YES. Greedling! I didn't think they'd give him a new voice, but it's fine,
. This whole episode was done really well. Loved when Scar finally found out about the truth of Ishval.
