Haven't seen the episode yet, but based on the screen shots, I'm glad they kept the entire info exchange sequence intact.

Was an ok episode. I'll rewatch it again with subs just to make sure I got everything they were saying.

And jeez they made Olivia even stronger in the anime. 0__0 Poor Armstrong lol, being thrown in the fountain must've hurt. Greelin's fight with Wrath was nicely animated, and the info exchange was good. I couldn't understand exactly what they were saying, but in the Youthswell scene, were they acting like May Chang was a stranger and welcoming her? Couldn't tell well. ED was cool too to reflect everyone moving towards 'The Promised Day'.

Yeah, in Youswell people were treating May as a stranger (because, well, she is a stranger to them in the anime, since there was no scene with rescuing Kyle's father), but still proposes her help after hearing that she plans to go trough the desert to Xing. :P
That was the one of two things that I didn't like in this episode, the rest was awesome. The second thing I didn't like was the change in Ed looks. Do they plan of making him look like a Hohenheim's second clone or something? Look at this. He looks more like young!Hoho with different hairstyle than like Ed... xD' hope he'll look like always from the next episode. In the last episode he did, I think.

i was wondering what would happen lol........like will everyone have a wtf moment?(wondering why the youthwell people know may) or will they show it in a flashback? or will they just not show youthwell and have the may/envy convo happen on the road? lol :)

Wow, this episode was amazing.

First off, I had an eyegasm during the Bradley vs Greed fight. The animation was delightful to watch.

O_O @ Olivier's super strength.

I loved the fleshed out Promised Day montage, and the ending was a nice treat. And wow at the preview for the next episode! I can't believe we've gotten to the final battle already.

Absolutely fantastic episode. Any number of the scenes could've been the episode highpoint for any other anime.

Olivier sure is wild!

Greed vs Wrath was nice.

I'm glad to see Ed mature to some extent and make a decision based on logic for a change! It might not be the best decision but it's at least a step forward.

How sweet tsundere Greed decided to be nakama with the good side. Things are getting active! As usual I love the conversation Roy, Hawk, Armstrong, Habokku ( don't know spell ) and the others do. Solid friencship right there, love it!

Lol Greelin is finally here^_^ I truly enjoy this anime more then any other right now. The whole information exchange was completely epic in anime form too and I like the end scenes after the credits now too. Lets just hope Brotherhood doesn't catch up before the manga ends.

the episode was awesome! the fight scene was well done and I also love how they included the elaborate message relaying :)

At the pace the anime is going I feel like this series will also be a 51 episodes series o.o

but the manga is not done yet...so I hope it lasts longer. wow its almost been a year since this series started. Time flies

Now that I think about it, it really feels like "24", like many different fronts happening at the same time that will all meld together at one point. There's tension in the air for sure. <3

WAHHH SO GOOD. This episode feels like it's leading into a time skip for next episode. From the preview, it looks like Ed and Winry are going to reunite!

I love how this series always hypes me up!! I can't wait to see where this is going to go!

I don't read the manga, but I agree this episode feels like the beginning of the end, or the last episode of a season.

Can anyone tell me if the manga is close to finishing? :o

The Armstrong family really is quite a unique bunch to say the least =P
But really Axel would have kicked Olivier's ass with easy due to his sheer mass and vastly superior strength.

And we finally get allot more of one of the better characters Greed/Lin =D
Great fight between him and Wrath, even though he technically "lost" :p

It's on the verge of ending. The manga already has 104 chapters and some people think there will be at least four more chapters to go before it ends.

The Greed vs Wrath scene was full of win! And I loved the ending with Mustang followed by the episode title.
The only thing I can complain about is that Ed looked a little off this episode. His head looked longer than usual. :\

Finally, Greedling Goodness x3 Excuse me while I'm in my bunk.
xD
Greed/Wrath was pure gold.

"If I'm gonna be king, why don't I become king of the whole world?" - and THIS is the only thing about which I hold Arakawa to her word. If Greedling is king, I can accept any kind of ending. And I mean any.

Also, it sounds so cool when theyoverlap the ED with the last scene. Especially when it's their epic message-sending. The Promised Day is near!
(I stopped believing Arakawa finishes the manga before they catch up with the anime. )

Totally loved that episode, a lot! Brilliant fight sequences, a lot of development and hilarity. It hit all the right notes I look for in FMA. Fair share of characters, equal military stuff with Ed (and Al stuff), good use of humour vs darkness. Terrific sequence at the end, really floored me. Loved it. Laughed at the random dog in Dublith. <3

Whenever they do this on a show, I much more likely to be impatient for the next episode. I love its use here.

The introducing fighting scene was fantastic and most developments were just great (seeing all the cast of the series thanks to Ed's message was a brilliant idea too). Well, this episode, as the last 10 or 15 ones, was extremely well executed. It's a pure pleasure to watch FMA's second season, especially when you have witnessed the wrong direction because of which the first one totally lost itself.

In every age, in every place, the deeds of men remain the same.

Olivia vs Alex Louis Armstrong was pretty cool. They totally wrecked the whole house. X'D

Greelin vs King Bradley was the shit! I loved how they showed the flashbacks during the fight. They really showed Greed's inner struggle very well.

Mustang getting the intel on the "Promised Day" reminded me of passing notes allong in class. :D

I really liked the last half of this episode. I'm sure I'm alone when I say I didn't really care for the fight scenes themselves, just what they meant for the characters. I also wonder if these people know what the Promised Day is. It felt like they all knew, but I don't understand why, unless it's some kind of holiday.

SO. FUCKING. GOOD.

Love Greedling. Love the Armstrongs and their epic-ness. Love the bit where Greedling teams up with Ed-tachi.
Fuck yeah, they did the information train SO WELL. Love it, love it, love it.
Lol @ Rebecca. And getting to see Havoc always makes me happy. ;)
Now we just have to wait like a million more eps to see his badass return. XP
