THIS IS AN ANIME ONLY DISCUSSION POST. DO NOT DISCUSS THE MANGA BEYOND THIS EPISODE.
----------------------------------------
Kimbley free, Marco free - now it will be taking up speed.
There were some flashbacks again, but i don't think they will really deliver all those they missed out in the previous episode..

Personally I really liked it. Animation and style were top knotch, and everything just really went well together. And anyone besides me like the way they used a flashback to introduce Kimblee as a bigger character?

And LOL, oh wow that bit from the preview is going to be amazing next week.

Nice transitional episode. I loved the chess scene montage (and my queen ♥) and Ed's drawing skillz.

So much old people love in this episode- Madame Christmas, Grumman, and Fu! :D

Oh, and I can't wait for this:

I really like this episode. I mean, i"v read the manga and i know what's coming, but it still pretty well done.

The part with Dr. Nox made me cry a bit, don't know why ;_; I guess I'm just very sensitive to family issues lol

Ok, finally, to the North!!!! *w*

Kimblee in a white suit is quite classy, can't wait to see him wreck havoc.

Marcoh losing his face looked painful. :/ So I guess they're moving onto the north now, should be interesting.

Kimblee <3 He looks like the mafia in that slick white suit. I can't wait for him to do what he does best. And I gotta say, I wasn't so hot on his voice last episode, but hearing it this time around really made a difference. It fits him perfectly.

Loved the chess montage. Mustang is too cool for words.

To the North!

Quite entertaining for a set up episode. The Dr. Knox scenes were very touching. Eh, Scar's sensibilities leave something to be desired.

Getting the exterior of your face completely disintegrated? OUCH!
Would it not have been better to just give him a mask or something? =P

Kimblee is released and Scar is going north.
Looks like the show is starting to pick up the pace again after being stagnant for a while.

One thing that puzzles me though is why Edward is so keen on getting his limbs restored.
I can understand if Alphonse want his body back, being trapped in a clunky suit of armour can't be very fun since you can't experience any fleshly pleasures, and the size and weight must be very inconvenient at times.
But Edward on the other hand got a perfectly working superior automail arm and leg.
Why would he want to trade away that?
It's far stronger than your normal human arm and you can easily fit different modifications in them, plus he can use alchemy on at any point to enhance their usefulness even further.

I for one would not trade that away.
Heck if we had that good working artificial limbs I'd cut my own arm off =P

I rly loved this ep!

Roy with the chess scene (damn, I guess one can't call this guy anything but a tactic genius!)

Riza stopped by Roy's office to tell him about Scar being lurking around *n to get her stuff which I think is only an excuse =)*

The queen thing was <3!!
Roy x Riza ftw!!

Dr. Knox crying when he went to make coffee for his family was rly touching!
Lan Fan & May Chang rly did good thanking him like that.

Ed telling the General (Roy) he is gonna get himself in a debt with him one after the other (in other words, not gonna let him die) was quite good and touching at the same time, too. =)

Ed & Al are in search for Shao May (to learn the secret about May Chang & Scar's alchemy) and Scar, whatever-named coward, May Chang and exterior face destroyed Marco going North!

and not to forget, Kimblee (by Envy's help) out in the run for Scar! *btw, he rly looked good in that white suit o_O*

5/5 ep!!

Keep it up, FMA.B!!
U'r always surprising me with each single ep <3! ^.^



Can't wait for next ep~

Looks like Scar just wanted to hurt Marcoh.
Then again, I wouldn't blame him. I mean he spend all this time killing State Alchemists in general to avenge his fallen comrades & now he comes across someone who used them as guinea pigs to create a philosopher's stone. Ofcourse he'll want to hurt him.

His limbs probably remind him about their failed attempt to ressurect their dead mother & of the consequences of their actions. As Hohenheim said "Just like a child hiding the sheets after wetting them."

Hoshino doing Kimblee's voice was strange. It took me by surprise. Though Kimblee is still Kimblee and that little redemption joke on the guard cracked me up. Hehe. Also, Roy looked very cool throughout this episode and Dr. Nox's scene was pretty emotional. He deserves more screen time damn it!

Btw, can't wait to see lady Armstrong!

Not bad, just not very interesting. It was nice to see Scar kept Marcoh alive, and that Mustang called Riza his queen, but besides that I found myself not paying too much attention to the episode. Including the whole car ride with mustang. I could only think about what 520 cenz they were talking about. I don't even remember it being borrowed.

Ed borrowed them after they were brought back up from the Father's lair to make the call to Winry in the phone booth.

I am a bit dissapointed in this episode, but seriously, it's rather hard to beat the Ishibal episode so it might be just that... hmm....

Aww, they skipped the little scene where the Elrics see Roy meeting up with some woman right after their talk D:
'Sorry, ignore the alien over there' xD Poor Al, having to bear Ed's idiocy.

Knox's reunion with his family got me teary-eyed. But it was a little less heavy with emotion than in the manga.

Hmm.. wait I find this pretty interesting, "VENGEANCE" is written in English on the wall when Envy walks in?xD
Also, I understand that Ed would focus on getting Al's body back over getting his own limbs back, since I don't see having a metal arm/leg as something negative xD
And.. Oh lol Scar is quite a brute, ain't he?xD

This was a better episode than last week, nothing was really crammed in, therefore it has a relevant pace to it. I liked the doctor with his family, it was really emotional with him, I wonder what he has done, looks like he has a dark history. Also what Scar did to the other doctor's face was harsh, but I guess it was smart in its dark and dilluded way. Anyway hopefully we will see some action in the next episode!!

I liked this episoooode~ So many good things in it.

I felt so bad for Dr. Knox when he was crying while making coffee... And poor Dr. Marcoh! Doctors are getting hit hard in this episode huh? I can't imagine Marcoh's pain. D': Obviously Scar is still very bitter (with good reason, especially towards Marcoh, who was actually involved in slaughtering Scar's people to make a Philosopher's Stone).
