Not a lot to say if you read the manga, pretty much as you would expect it to be, except Al woke up when they were carrying him in the snow. Otherwise not a big difference.

It's still weird seeing Rose so pale...

Next episode should be intense.

Another wonderful episode, as always :D

Ahh! Caught up! D:

'Not sure that anyone here will agree with this, but my only problem with this anime (and it is a relateively minor problem) is that it is really the best when the episodes are focused primarily on Ed and Al's going-ons, but they tend focus instead on the larger plot, which is severely lacking in comedy and personality 3: It is still amazing, though :3

5/5, wonderful anime.

I actually think it's quite the opposite. To me, Ed and Al are not as interesting as the other characters and the greater plot around them.

Before this episode, Pride was just goofy looking, and I didn't really understad why most people called him creepy, etc. This episode (because of the direction) really made me feel how menacing Pride is. Maybe it's because Hoehenhim felt threatened, I don't know, but the way he was animated, racing through the tunnel with a weird 2-dimensional, yet somewhat 3-d sense was a little disturbing in the best way possible.

Everything else was nice.

Shit, mayb i missed out sth, but selim bradley is Pride rite? But according to this episode, pride is confined to his cave. But, in a earlier episode, selim revealed himself as pride to Lt. Hawkeye. I'm confused. It'd be nice if someone explains it for me. Ah, this is a great ep as always.

He can only stay within the tunnel and the center of Ametris.

That's where he met Hawkeye

I have to agree with ArnoldK on this one. It is the other characters who are indeed more interesting.

Way to go, Hohenheim. This was one of the best non-Ed episodes up till now.

Wait, why did I think Envy was dead...? Damn, he's back.

I KNOW. And he's not even the Big Bad.
So, they're finally closing the bloody circle with war at Briggs and epic stuff is going to happen. I mean, even more of it.
I loved how they ended it with cannons firing, Kimmy's crooked smile and then the dynamic ending. x3

Hohenheim acted kinda out of character there for a bit. Meaning he isn't usually that talkative. But the guy's cool.

I fucking knew it. Drakma is now involved into this. All thanks to Kimblee and his plans to create a bloody crest into Briggs. I wonder if Olivier will pop up and beat the shit out of that army.

Okay so the main thing was Hohenheim. Oh my, did you see that alchemy? He's almost like in the same level as the father. He's also declared war to father. Wow this is getting intense. I wonder who will win.

Also in the end, did Zampano really betray Winry and the others? If so, then fuck him. If not, then fuck him still. I don't like chimeras, that's all.

So... Pride can only act in Central and the hole? That's a good thing. Or else his power would be pretty much unlimited. I mean... shadows are everywhere.

And Sloth's finally finished with the tunnel. I wonder what Hohenheim will do...

Hohenheim was behind cool when talking to Pride. Btw, I can see a little of Ed in him when he was running away or, rather, I guess it's the other way around. Still, it's good to know that the stoic character he had seemed to be just a front around Ed.

amazing episode as always :D

they were able to decipher the notes by flipping them, Overturn :P

so the symbol was basically the same one homunculus used from the XerXes ruins.

though i have to wonder how Scar's brother were able to decipher it?

then again Hohenheim spread alchemy from both regions and he did studied both.

wow so Sloth manages to finish the circle, and kimblee now set on decleretion of war.

poor Roy's subordinate, spread throughout the region.

Feury stay alive!!!!!

yay a stable Rose is much better :P

haha Hohenheim was saved by her XD

which is funny since Ed did like her ^^

so the underground passage in Liore is similar in the first season



here it just connects the circle Sloth created from all of the regions.

so that's why Sloth has been digging all this time.

Hohenheim vs Pride!!!

and yeah Hohenheim manages to use alchemy without even using his hand motions(just by thinking of it)

so that's why Pride is the "first" homunculus, it was homunculus first emotion that he let go.

Slave Number 23 is coming for ya Homunculus!!!!

Kimblee is using the Drachma to declare war agains Briggs huh?

damn kimblee and his smile :P

wait till you see Olivier coming back(hopefully)

everything is being set into motion

man i am freaking excited about this :)

i don't actually mind not seeing Ed in this episode.

give others some screentime huh?? :P

damn zampano is such a rat.

the other two with scar and others are much better :D

Maaan Kimblee's nastiness knows no bounds! But it was inevitable that Drachma would enter the story at some point. Seeing how much they have been talking about that country during the anime. I kind of have a feeling Hohenheim will die, but that his death won't be in vain. Sure hope not as I have grown to like that ancient relic quite a bit.
Anyone got any dragonradar laying around? I'd like to wish for a deliciously painful death for Kimblee! >:)

Hohenheim's alchemy skills are very impressive.

Ofcourse they are! The dude has had hundreds years of practice and to top it all off he is a fricking philosopher's stone! That's a sure fire recipe for badassery man. I was kind of dissapointed he didn't put up a fight against Pride. I wouldn't expect him to be able to kill Pride in his own 'domain' but at least putting up a fight should be possible for the sage of the east and west, right?

Good episode, interesting that Drachma is attacking, shouldn't they try to avoid killing either way? Even winning would cause lots of bloodshed and the circle is complete

Hohenheim is one badass aclhemist and Drachma has come (as expected they look totally Russian!).

UGH, Envy is showing up again. I detest characters like him. Could he die a painful death (a la Lust) please? That's the only thing missing at this point.
