Aw nuuu!!! D: Selim! He was so cute. Poor Mrs. bradley, how awful for her :(

Goodness, Kimblee is a complete sociopath O__O

Aw, Ed 's and Winry are so sweeet~♥ ^_^

Ed: Think about something else Ed!!! "Hydrogen-Helium-Lithium-Beryllium-Boron-carbon..."
Winry: "Why did I fall for a wierdo like this? =__="

Oh no! Almost caught up! 3:

HAHAHA....I was soo wrong about Selim. I should have known...

Loved the Winry/Ed moments. Too bad they're not in the best situation for the relationship to grow.

Correct me if I'm wrong but I think a similar Selim moment happened in the original FMA as well.

This episode was actually pretty good. Edo is such a smart boy.

What the fuck? Pride is Selim? Just what is this all about?! I knew it man. So that's why he got an entire episode all by himself, because he is an important character. Does the Fuhrer president know all about this? Well I guess he does know because apparently he knows everything, lol.

Okay I wonder which side will Ed choose. I think he'll join forces with Scar for the mean time to fight off the central army and then later on they'll fight again.

Also about the philosopher stone that Kimblee offered to Ed, why was Ed suprised to see a piece of it while Kimblee has a whole stone by himself? Wow Ed is clueless, I guess.

Man.. Wouldn't it be annoying having to act as a family all that time then for bradley and selim? They probably should get rid of the mother >.>

Wow. Was NOT expecting Selim to be Pride. Awesome Hawkeye moment there, further cementing her as one of my favorite anime characters. Plus her VA rocks.

Winry finally said she loved Ed! I mean, I think we all knew it from the beginning, but hearing her say it just made it that much better. :)

Selim Bradley is Pride. Okay. Didn't expect that. He was just so cute. Now I feel bad for Mrs. Bradley for having two homunculi in her household. Freaky.

One of the best episodes so far, no doubt about it. I love how kawai Winry was at the start of this episode and then how serous was she at the ending.
About Pride... let's just say I didn't see this coming. I still probably like more the FMA version of Pride, but this one is the best Brotherhood hommunculus so far... second only to Greed, of course :P

Amazing, once again. Ed is going after Scar first, so he's only planning to manipulate Kimbley's orders to his own benefit. (Well, of course he wouldn't kill anyone...) Roy's information exchange was hilarious, since he ended up having to keep the flowers LoL But the best part was actually Pride. So Selim is the first Homunculi and controls the shadows. Riza was amazing there, realizing it and even asking questions when he appeared. So she's the reason he didn't attack the others at Briggs...

This operation could end up badly for the Homunculi.

If Kimbley gets killed by Scar, then Ed and Al can take Winry to a safe place (maybe with Izumi or even to the east?) and the Fuhrer would have just lost his hold over them.

wow Kimblee really put an act on Winry despite him intensifying the war and all.

wow Winry sure loves automail, especially new and unseen like from the North :P

so the florist that Roy is talking to is Armstrong's mom or their own florist??

so that's pride huh :P

very different from the first season.

so he's the first homunculus huh :P

Riza almost died there O___O

kimblee is such a bastard, guess he just wanted to see which side will win. humans or homunuculus and wants to witness it towards the end.

plus he get's to use his alchemy powers freely so this guy is such a greedy bastard just like greed.

guess Ed will not use the philosopher's stone since they know it was made from the XerXes people.

i really have to wonder what is special from the eastern alchemy other than using the natural resources itself.

things are getting better and better each episodes :)

its best to just keep the first fma anime totally seperate in our minds from brotherhood.

and i can definately say, despite having been a massive fan of the first FMA, that brotherhood is superior....and it never made me piss my pants alongside hawkeye when Pride was revealed here. Cute happy kid who tears apart the toughest ass soldiers and turns them into whimpering maggots.

its the same sorta element that say works in..and iam sorry to bring it up here...a grimdark fanfiction called Cupcakes of that My Little Pony show, where one of the happiest and cheeriest chars (from what i gather) maintains her happy cheery upbeat mood while horrifically torturing and murdering another main character. A lot like pride in the corner surrounding hawkeye with his...shadows...

So Pride is finally revealed. Just try rewatching the scenes with him at the library without getting creeped out now.

No need to rewatch, because back then I already thought it was stupid of Alphonse to tell a random stranger of their intentions, even though I ofcourse didn't know the kid was actually Pride. I just had a feeling that telling all that to the Fuhrer's kid might end up hurting them and this feeling proved to be correct albeit for slightly different reasons haha. This does make me wonder whether Pride's obsession with the Elric brothers is real.
This episode also revealed a little about Pride's abilities. Pride is for example able to move around his shadow or whatever it is freely across the land. But can he only move around like that in the shadow or also in the light? Guess we will find out soon enough!

This episode felt really short. I guess that means the pacing was really good. Time to watch the next episode.

Had to skip the first 5 minutes of the STILL crappy, overused and cliche jokes.

The creeping shadows aren't creepy at all, and became a complete joke with that terrible new addition to hommunculi, terrible design, terrible dialogue, and extremely childish.

This series so far is purely kiddie. The hommunculi are nowhere near as fearsome, well-designed or well-written or even well-fitted into the story as the previous set. This is purely a shonen group of top-tiers, like Ginyu force or Shichibukai. Lame.

Ed and Kimblee's dialogue was interesting. However I wish I could buy the possibility of Ed killing everyone for suspense, but it's too... pure.

That episode was really intense. I was so tense while watching the anime.
Noo. Selim is just a cute little fellow, he can't be a homunculus.
Just reminding, Selim is also a Turkish name.

Selim revealed as Pride. And what an insanely powerful homunculus he is.

Wenry finally starts learning some of whats going on. What I don't get is how Armstrong allows Kimblee to just walk around undisturbed? Can't she give him the same treatment as to the General? Just pour cement on him.

So you're the rumored HurricaneSweet, my pleasure to meet you.

On topic, that Pride, man, the first time Bradley, or Wrath, talked to Pride telepathically, he was talking to his "son"? Lol. Pride sure know how to act like a child, huh? Can Pride shapeshift or change his size? I mean, it wouldn't be normal if he is not growing at all, right? Hmm..

I still dislike Winry, meh, always trying to do things she can't. What's with her following Ed and Al? What is she planning to do? Oh, hold the gun against Scar again? -.- Women need to get the hell outta shounen. I don't mind someone like Riza or Armstrong nee-san, but not someone like Winry.

I can't deal with Winry's shit. I can't do it. Why is she such a freaking burden. I'm considering putting this anime on hold for a couple days because I can't take any more crap from Winry.

Pride's reveal wasn't even a shocker. I saw it coming ever since that scene of King Bradley talking to Pride in his house and when he said hurting his son wasn't a worthy threat. But, all that creepy eye shit and about being the first Homunculus, that I did not see coming.

Damn, didn't expect Selim to be a homunculus. I was thinking he was a normal human and would somehow become collateral damage, which would set things in motion somehow. Oh well. Ed having a plan as always, nice. Hope Winry doesn't get in the way or hurt.

Ed remembering what Riza told him about Winry was really funny haha and he missed she saying that she fell for him.
I love Winry's reactions whenever she sees an automail.
Finally Selim's true identity is shown! Pride!

So when the flower lady gives Roy Mustang those flowers and asks for 36,000 cen, she is asking him for the equivalent of $299.55...That is a ton of money. Wtf. Yet they charge Edward 100 cen for coffee which is $0.83... Is he paying for the info she gave him?

The situation becomes even more serious, but the narrative maintains an atmosphere very funny sometimes, is good as well, do not exasperate the minds of the spectators, finally comes out also another truth. Plot increasingly intriguing.

The Selim scene was really fucking creepy O.o
So he is the first Homunkuli, what I personally never had expected as a non manga reader. Especially in the first episodes where he got introduced who had thought about that? After this scene I'm extremely worried about Riza. :-/

Indeed poor Mrs. Bradley.

The atmosphere changed in the last episodes. Sometimes creepy like with Selim, sometimes it's funny or it's serious. But as we saw Ed planned to do something against Kimblee. Hopefully nothing will happen to Winry.

Omg I had to laugh when I saw Mustang with all the flowers :D
