THIS IS AN ANIME ONLY DISCUSSION POST. DO NOT DISCUSS THE MANGA BEYOND THIS EPISODE.
----------------------------------------
So Pride is finally revealed. Just try rewatching the scenes with him at the library without getting creeped out now.

The reveal was extremely horrifying - I'm proud of Riza for keeping her cool.

Poor Mrs. Bradley D:

great episode.


I personally thought that Pride reveal worked better in manga, but thats just me...Its just....tat he remained way too cute in there, while in manga the art portrayed him differently.

I kind of appreciated the juxtaposition of his cuter appearance and the creepy shadow things. :)

Finally: Selim Bradley is Pride. I found his shadow eyes/faces more creepier in the manga, though.
Fans of the fightings will get a lot of it soon :)

Tuesday is the next manga release, can't wait to get it :O_

I thought the Pride reveal was very creepy- to see the normally cool and collected Hawkeye sweat like that was well done. Bravo on her part- trying to be as professional level headed as possible and collect information while probably freaking out internally was well done on her part. I think it would have been better played, though, if they had strung the viewers on until the end of the episode, ending at the same point that 70 ended on and showed the rest at the beginning of the next episode. It would have switched the order of events a little bit, but seeing as how that scene is independent of the scenes at Briggs, it wouldn't have been a big deal.

I do wish they had cut down on some of the comedy in the earlier part of the episode- like Ed's extreme reaction to Hawkeye guessing he loved Winry. I like the comedy in the manga, but in animated form it's kind of distracting and is a lot harder to just shrug off than in the manga.

Great episode, it was really weird when that shadow, or what ever it is, retreated instead of killing the rest of the people in the tunnel.

I thought the Pride reveal had less impact than in the manga. However in the manga i was of course surprised by it.

i have to say it's strange that the homunculi let all those people alive, after they obtained crucial information, like Mustang and now Hawkeye who are not important sacrifices.

It's great to see Winry a lot in this episode...And as others said, pride was not portrayed very well as in manga...not that creepy and terrifying...

hmm,,,, I think they did mention that Mustang was a "potential sacrifice". With that, Hawkeye was for keeping him in check

I do agree that Selim being revealed as Pride was done better in the manga. Imo he didn't look creepy...at all. At least his voice changed a bit.

Thought the Pride reveal scene was well executed. It was filled with tension and terror. And the cuter the kid, the creepier the moment IMO. Glad Winry is no longer in the dark. Next week looks to have plenty of action.

Was it just me, or did the character design look terribly off? I felt like everyone's faces were rounder with bigger, rounder eyes. It really spoiled a lot of Mustang, Riza, and Selim's expressions. Pride's reveal was good in the house, but in the courtyard, it was really lame, since i could only think of Naruto, and knew that nothing was going to happen to Riza. Didn't feel menacing at all.

Oh well, that aside, it wasn't a bad episode.

I was never a fan of this season's art to begin with but I have to agree, their facial and some of their body structure changed from how it was before. The preview for the next episode made them look fatter too.

I thought the episode was decent but wasn't really a fan of how Pride was introduced. Like a few people have already mentioned the kid just seemed too cute to really be taken serous. I mean if they wanted to stick with the cute sadistic look they could have at least made him look a little more sadistic and crazy as he was talking and less like he just wanted a hug lol.

Interesting, because I find it creepier if you have a cute face and a sadistic, menacing personality hiding behind it. There is something horribly wrong with an innocently smiling kid being that powerful and threatening to toy around and kill someone. To make his creepiness too obvious by changing Selim's features/expression would risk making the scene look downright cheesy. I think the route they took here was the better choice, IMO, but admittedly, they could have made it better by playing with angles, lighting, etc. to increase the tension.

Anyway, good episode, even though it wasn't exactly exciting. I'm just wondering what the hell Winry will do while tagging around with Ed and Al. It's not like she can fight or anything =/ I guess the alternative, though, would be to hang out with Kimbley...

Pride. Oh yeah :P

Be back after finishing the episode.


*EDIT:

Well, that was kinda creepy when Pride had Hawkeye. His ... "things" moving up her shoes and then :lol: Wonder what else that naughty guy did :P :P
Why did he back down inside that tunnel? Was it because he sensed Hawkeye at his home?

How could anyone think of Mustang as weird? He's just cute and awesome. Stupid girls. Oh and Winry didn't cry. Good for her.

Anyway, looks like we'll get some action next time which is good.

Only Greedling and Wrath are fused on real humans.

Others are mostlikely created in some way, just like Gluttony is.


OH and yes. At this point in manga, NO ONE saw Selim as Pride coming. Its one of best hidden awesome secrets Arakawa has ever done.

Great ep =)

Winry finally knows like-everything and making an excuse, for not just staying at the Fortess.

Ed accepting the job and the philosopher's stone while actually planning on finding May!

and Selim being Pride o_O!! The first Humonculus...

5/5!

Seems like a lot of stuff is gonna happen soon!
Till next ep~~!

The wait every week kills me x__X But I finally came to a conclusion that downloading from the subbers' site is much better than crappy quality streams. Go me.

Selim being Pride is one of the best plot twists in FMA. Makes most of his earlier scenes so creepy in context. The scene with Hawkeye was great, although it was much less scary than in the manga (that's because it was black and white only and the shadows were a lot more terrifying)...I love how much guts she has, I'd freak out immediately.

And yay for Winry not being a completely useless wimp! I like it when she takes action :)
