Nice to see the story behind Yoki I did preferred the whole episode dedicated to it from the original FMA but it was still quite nice they included it! That ending was a bit unexpected though!

nice timing for Roy to contact Hawkeye :D

so the coal mine was actually the same one Ed and Al went back then.

can't believe he doesn't remember it O_____O

and yeah i kinda like the first season's portryal of the flashback more just because they dedicated an episode for it.

though there seems to be a missing character here :P

May chang really likes Al XD

ahaha it does look like he's two timing her with winry!

poor Yoki having to try to kidnap the armstrong home :P

we need scar to decohper his brother's notes!!!

Zampano and Jero is scary as hell!!

and lol the elric brother's making it seem like they don't know them so that they can beat them without any fault.

Ed seems to like Northen style automail :D

yeah Winry seems to want to face him just to end this sadness.

i think scar should just tell winry why she killed them.

due to insanity and mental breakness after seeing his whole family and brother dies in front of him due to the state alchemist and all.

Olivier bending the rules by acting based on the broken watch :P

she really cares about her men :)

wow so alot of Central people going to the north all of a sudden O__O

Winry!! i hope scar doesn't do something stupid T__T

can't wait for the next episode ;)

This episode was awesome! Yoki's flashback was the best flashback of the show (and there were many!) and the fight against the chimeras was great as well.
I agree with some other people that mentioned Scar taking Winry is probably some scheme they came up with.
After all Ed knows very well that they need Scar to decipher the research results of Scar's brother. That and... The enemy of my enemy is my friend i guess?

I love the fight scene. 5/5 I thought it was really funny when Ed and Al were freaking out about the "talking monsters" LOL

I completely forgot about Yoki. I knew he was a wanted criminal and stuff and the mine flashback brought it all back to me I was like "OHHHHH HIM!"

"FMA isn't like other shonens; it doesn't have these generic random battles, it uses strategy in fights and they play a part in the story"

Guess that just applies to the old series.

I staaaaarted to actually get into the fight when they showed they weren't fodder (despite still looking like YYH ripoffs), but then, that's right, shitty jokes out of nowhere to ruin the flow.

Underwhelming in every way.

Episode's just started with shocking scene,yet it turned out nothing important.Pheww.
Evil dog..
Selim was so calm while he was threatening Hawkeye.. Scary
Ed's expressions make my day all the time.
Elric brother's and May,Marcoh and Yoki's encounter was hilarious.
Black and white film scene was spectacular.
Those ugly chimeras...

I really like the Hawkeye/Mustang relationship. They understand their silences so well it's almost eery.

I'd go to battle anyday for General Armstrong.

Roy X Riza moment was too cute x] He could tell something was wrong even through just a phone call kyaaaahhh~ I ship them so hard xD

and Winry is just fine in the hands of Scar so I wouldn't worry. He's a good man deep down after all :) just needs a little guidance, but still a good man.

When Winry appeared again in front of Scar, I was totally "WTF come on, do we really need more of that chick's drama?".. Sigh this is one of the reason why FMAB won't be one of my favorite series.

I think it's pretty obvious that it's their plan..

My hate for Winry is unquenchable. But I have a feeling this has all been an act from the start, Ed probably has some genius plan.

That fight with Kimblee's guys was hilarious, that was probably the only thing I actually laughed out loud for in this whole anime so far.

I'm really interested in seeing more of Pride/Selim but completely uninterested in the Briggs story arc, I wish they'd switch location and leave the North, because it's just BLAH there.

lol the flashback was fully animated in the original....... What a strange recall of memory since I don't remember much from the original.

-Hawkeye psychologically shaken because of Pride. I was pretty creeped out when she was in the room alone picking up the phone as well.
-Looks like Ed is devising a show to trick Kimboslice.
- Armstrong has some splaining to do......

great ep

Can someone explain me better Yoki's story? I didn't quite get it, the flashback was sudden and unexpected, I even thought it was a made up scene in his mind... I'm kinda watching the anime by pieces, I occasionally stop because I lack time so I might have forgotten something

Looks like they will team up with Scar.

I just slept a few hours ago, but for some reason, I just suddenly woke up and couldn't sleep. I realize that FMAB is calling me. I shall finish this Anime before the year ends!!

Oh great, of course Winry is going to get kidnapped. I can't decide if I like Scar or not! Olivier showing mercy to her soldiers with the broken watch was awesome too. Good episode overall!

Less exciting, but we think the comedy to make you enjoy watching this episode, you get to the fateful rendezvous, who knows what will emerge. Narrative that gives a twist at the end, but I think it's just a farce.

Hmm Yokis story was pretty funny, especially when he tried to steal from the Armstrongs, poor guy xD. Can it be that this was to see in the normal Full Metal Alchemist?

Would have been interesting to see the reaction of Scar to Miles. And now he took Winry? Omg I think Ed will freak out.

Strange persons from central I think appeared at Briggs. Seems they come for Raven.

I'm so curious on the next episode. This is getting more and more intense.

Sooo, I have 2 theories about what's going to happen on the next episode:
1) Scar didn't actually kidnaped Winry, it was actually a way of getting her out of the Army's eye (and thay can't say she isn't a hostage that way!)
2) Scar actually did kidnaped Winry, yet he won't do anything bad to her as he feels bad about killing her parents

I LOVE this series so much, I can't stop watching it! I actually had to stop myself yesterday as I don't want to binge it, I want to slowly and fully enjoy it. I also don't want it to end. Ever. :'(

P.S. Though I know how it ends, but I will never get that "First Time" feeling whenever I re watch it :/

Wow, how many more people will Scar kill before they finally stop letting him go free? This is like the 5th time they've let him walk for their own personal reasons. Their selfishness and naivete really grates on me sometimes.

Scar is no different from people like Mustang, Hawkeye and others, people who killed many. If people like these can stay free, so can Scar.

I don't see how they are selfish at all. If there is a thing the Elric brothers aren't is selfish.

Surely this must be part of their plan, Scar "kidnapping" Winry so she's safe from Kimblee and the military.
Also I loved the Chimera mix up, acting like they dont know who they are :D

Looks like everyone is trying to throw Kimblee off.

Since Winry is being used as a bargaining chip, if they can protect her then the Elric brothers will be free to run loose.

i feel like winry is purposely going with scar as a plan, so that kimblee can't use her as a pawn against ed and al
if not, scar better not do anything

Edward enjoyed his new, lighter arm. His fighting skills noticeably improved if we compare them to the first episodes.

Yoki's story was truly heart touching, but if I were him, then Armstrongs' mansion would be the very last place to try to steal something. ;D Mei's reactions on seeing Alphonse were awesome as well.

Olivier Armstrong might be rigorous and rough, but she really cares about her soldiers.

Great episode with action, story and characters' development and funny moments!

Pride's overwhelmingly terrifying threats left Lieutenant Hawkeye paranoid about the monstrous brat tracking her every move and waiting for her to mess up so he can finish her off. Considering that she's stuck with the Fuhrer President as his direct assistant, it'll be a lot more difficult for her to get anything done in her end.

It was very amusing to watch the Brothers pummel those Chimeras from Central HQ while pretending that they're completely oblivious about the situation. Yoki's story is top lul.

Since Scar was captured just a second ago and observing how Edward shouted at Kimblee for not keeping an eye on Winry even though she was with them the whole time, it feels like they're pulling another trick from their sleeve.

They adapted the Yoswell arc with a black and white flashback from Yoki' pov lol

Feel like the Elrics and Scar are trying to trick Kimblee into thinking they're not working together
