Sayonara May! I really liked May she was a great character in the story, hopefully she'll come back! The Epic fight with envy was quite something never would have guessed she would be a small monster like that... Though of first the doctor completely killed her, oh well now May has something to present her clan!
Either way great episode lets see what happens next!

wow the battle against Drachama was too fast O___O

guess Kimblee did creat a bloody crest

wah Ishbala people are still alive and well and scattered all over the country.

Hawkeye seems to be worried now that she knows both King Bradley and Selim are homunculus.

damn i thought that Zampano is such a bastard, guess he was acting huh :P

the fight was awesome, great to see May attacking from a far, but Marcoh did the considerable work :P

i actually thought envy died O____O

so he was just a insect?!?!

ahaha no one cares about Yoki XD

poor Envy trap on that jar :P

Bye Bye May :(

but i think she'll be back along with Ran Fa and Fu!!

damn that lizard guy is still alive all this time O____O

poor Alex XD

being bullied by Olivier :P

damn so that general guy is Homunculus himself??

So Al finally meets HohenHeim!!!!

hehehe Winry seems to be a little jealous about Rose :P

amazing stuff, finally Ed appears next episode!!!!!

she isnt jealous. she was smiling, she was probably reflecting on how she misses him too.

and the armstrong siblings interactions were hilarious. Major may be a tough mother but his big sister is several magnitudes tougher with an additional load of ferociousness

His men and those who know him must be having double takes seeing him like that while realizing just how tough the General is.

and that marriage comment was just asking for it. i really liked the dubbing for this.

And here I thought Zampano had betrayed them. Tadpole Envy was pretty funny.

Last episode i overlooked the fact that Kimblee didn't necessarily have to betray Briggs to create a bloody crest so I expected him to do so. I was pleasantly surprised he didn't and instead led the foolish drachmans to their deaths.
It was a good episode and Zampano's supposed betrayal was done nicely as well as the short battle against Envy. But it's obviously foolish to let a powerful Homunculus like Envy live, even in that form. I expect it to hurt them later on especially since he is only in the custody of May now and i don't think they will let her exit the stage like that. In other words, something will happen and she won't be able to leave to Xing with Envy in the bottle.

Damn, it was kinda satisfying seeing Envy get destroyed like that. And dat cliffhanger. This show seems to really be picking up. I hope it keeps this up.

Feel slightly sorry for Drachma. Olivier said they learnt their lesson but it wasn't Drachma's idea to fight anyway. :( Yes! They finally captured Envy! Let's hope the Emperor of Xing is pleased and May's clan is saved.

Words cannot express how deliciously enjoyable this episode was. Seeing Envy literally beaten to being a puny little worm is even better than having him dying.

surely the worm version of envy has to come back at some point. him latching onto that dude who got denied really hard was classic

Al and Hhh's reunion, next episode should be good. I like the Armstrong siblings interaction, they were fun to watch. Seriously, that Doc.Marcoh's power felt like an asspull, I mean, if he had that kind of power, he should've told someone, or taught it to Scar, or Al..

Edit: Is Xing not going to play a role in this at all? I am very interested in that country.. and what about Ling? It's been a while since we've seen him.. sigh.. they mentioned Greed in this episode so he should appear soon, but.. ugh..

Dr Marcoh is so awesome! He finally reveals his powers!

I really hope we get to see more of Hohenheim and Greed soon because they're my favourite characters. I'm also loving that Ed has disappeared for now.

Envy's true form was so funny! It suited his name so well because it explained his cause of envy.

The scene where Envy controls Yoki was hilarious! Scar's moment was so funny!

Saying bye to May so early was unexpected. I really thought she'd hang around more.

The ending was so perfect, mainly because General Armstrong was in it.

Gotta admit, I forgot Marcoh was also a state alchemist so when I saw a transmutation circle on his palm I'm like "oh...oh yeah" lol. Does that mean he has the power to stop even Pride?

Nobody cares about Yoki XD! Ah Envy...a big fugly dinosaur thing whose actual form is actually just a tiny lizard thing. Perfect example of compensating for size haha.

"However, I picked my bride myself." Tragic. Fuhrer. :'(

Great episode, tons of stuff happened.

I was annoyed at Zampano and then actually grinned when he said "Shitty acting, huh?" It was nice seeing a tag team and even nicer than Marco, of all people, ended up taking Envy down. It's kind of a ridiculously OP power though, making him more effective than pretty much anyone around? You'd think it would've cropped up before.

I almost can't believe Envy is gone. But the way he melted out was wonderfully gross and it's delicious irony that he actually isn't a big green thing after all. Just a little one that was almost cute. Have to say I'm happy that Mei is making her exit here, though I've warmed up to her.

When Envy tried to take hostage of that greasy sidekick LOL

Nah, you cool, Zampano.
Badass Marcoh for the win!! Envy, you are just a little shit, huh. I think his true form looks cute. That voice ahahaha.
Scar is slowly leaving the dark side. They have gone separate ways. I will miss May and Shao.
Those things looks like Greed. Winry is jealous.....and Hohenheim just finished washing the dishes ahahaha.

Zampano! What a total bro! Envy just got absolutely wrecked, so that's another homunculus gone. Adios to Mei and her panda as well, it would seem. Marcoh and Scar teaming up for good seems pretty cool too. And Hohenheim and Al are about to be reunited! Interesting...

Funny moments with Al calling out Winry's face when Rose said she missed Al, and Yoki not having any friends.

Okay I didn't expect that they planned to place a trap for Envi. Marcoh was badass in this episode. Envy is a little worm? wtf

Was sad to see May leaving...I will miss her ;_;
Also Scar and Marcoh left the group. Curious about what Scar will do.

Haha at the scene with Mira and Alex Armstrong :D

Wow at that ending scene. All these synthesised bodies, that are really bad news.

Omg Winrys was a little bit jealous when Rose said she wanted to see Ed, of course Al had to provoke her :D

Now Hohenheim finally meets Al. The real war will begin. I AM SO READY FOR THIS!!!!! or maybe not, let's see :P

Have a feeling that leaving Envy with May isnt the best idea, he's probably going to come back in his original form later on.

Seems their "immortal" army has been shown to Olivier, guessing that's what the alchemy circle acoss the entire country is made for.

Marcoh was such a badass defeating Envy in his giant fetus form. I'm not sure if thisis the last we will see of Envy though, since that green thing is him, he might just go inside of another body or whatever.

Marcoh is a beast woah. Took down Envy where everyone else failed.

Everyone is making moves. May is gone from the story. She did what she had to. Scar and Marcoh will be back for the final confrontation. Getting some of the side characters out of the way is a good thing so we can advance the main ones.

Winry jealous of Rose? Ha.

marcoh was a badass in that scene, knew exactly how to take him down. i have the feeling that leaving greed with may isn't gonna go right though, couldn't he just inhabit another body if he were let out of the jar?

Drachma are a bunch of idiots for taking Kimblee's word for it. He's a fucking state alchemist, even if he says he betrayed them they should've took his words with a grain of salt.

Poor Chimera lamenting Greed's abduction even after all this time. Talk about not being able to move on.

Nice that Zampano didn't betray them. Ishvalans suffered enough as it is, their hiding villages being destroyed would be too much.

Envy was thoroughly humiliated by the very humans he looked down upon, getting thrown around all over the place like an insect after he fell for the bait Zamparos set up. I didn't expect him to deal the finishing blow but Marcoh sure was awesome when he destroyed Envy's core. Mei's seat as Emperor is pretty much cemented because she finally has something to present back at Xing.

Armstrong discovers the immortal army Raven has been raving on about all this time and they're as inhumane as it gets.

Hohenheim makes the most unexpected reunion with Al and Winry~
