WOW I LOVED HOW THEY USE ALL THESE SECRET CODE TO PASS THE INFORMATION ABOUT THE PROMISED DAY, VERY INTERESTING WOW LOL. I guess it's all going to happen on the promised day huh? I'll be waiting for that then.

Anyways, Ed and Greed joining forces together? I guess Ed won't be seen for a while. I bet he'll suddenly pop up out of nowhere during a battle or something. As the elders say, good heroes always come late.

So North and East are joining forces together. Wow I seriously can't wait for them to bring down the Central army. Also there's Scar too. But I'm still wondering if Olivier really joined with the central. I'm hoping not since she's a force to be reckoned with.

I absolutely loved this episode. That fight scene between Wrath and Greed was fuckin' amazing. Just in awe o' the animation. Bones♥. Izumi gettin' into Griggs again was pretty funny.

Olivier and Alex made this episode though. I love them. This is soo gearing up. It's gettin' intense.

I totally loved this episode! Loved how the information about The Promised Day was passed around. <3

And the Armstrong family! I just love them. Everyone's so lovable. *w*

Ahahahah, this time Wrath wasn't even close to defeating Greed. Ed working under Greed... I couldn't wish for something better! Ed preparing rebellion all over the country... he sure is cool!

Wrath vs. Greed was amazing. As was pretty much everything that happen in this episode (but come on May, you're way to easy to manipulate...). Though my favorite part had to be the information exchange about the promised day. The way this anime portrays that kind of scenes is simple awesome^^

Man, that fight between Greed and Bradley was great. This series doesn't have as many action scenes compared to most shounen of this type, but when it does it's usually fantastic. So many interesting things going on, it feels really epic in scope with all the characters coming into play.

Great episode everyone helping each other passing a message through! The fight with both Armstrong siblings was quite something and it seems May has gone back to Central maybe been tricked by envy but still good that she'll be back in the episodes!

Either way lovely episode!

the battle with Greed and King Bradley was awesome!!

stupid Pride, don't interfere with this.

not to mention it seems he shield is much stronger compared back then.

since Bradley was able to slice his head with ease.

Olivier tried to retire her father just so they can place them in a safe place.

funny their father is the same voice actor as Alex :P

like father like son ^^

kinda funny how the battle was happening while the family make it look like nothing's happening XD

good to see Catherine here :)

she had a great episode on first season.

poor Alex being thrown all over the mansion, the fountain everywhere XD

that smirk in Olvier's face is soo good :D

poor May Chang, when everyone is kind to her.

guess she needs to protect them despite her clan at the verge of extinction.

damn Envy don't plan anything suspicious :P

nice so Ling can still take over his body huh ^^

so Ling manage to pass the information about the "Day"

what is "Father" hoping to achieve by opening the gate?

to get more power? etc??

King of the World :D

funny seeing Ed bow out to Greed :D


nice ring to it ^^

seeing them team up is amazing :)

you'll pay Homunculus :P

haha i thought the person that assaulted the northern region was scar.

it was actually Izumi XD

i wonder if Izumi told them they've she's been stealing their goods back then :P

everyone's preparing for the day :P

Grumman must be resting huh :D

such a badass tapping Rebecca's ass like that :)

hehe Rebecca passing the message to Black Hayate ^^

same with Havoc and his cigarettes.

so in Spring both north and east will collide huh?

Gluttony is alive!!

guess we won't be seeing Lust since her stone was destroyed :(

amazing stuff, i wonder what happens on that day.

this series is just amazing, wish we have more of this nowadays.

on to the next one :)

Boring episode but the last 5 minutes made up for it.

Both fight scenes felt meh, this series right now is suffering from fatigue, there's not a single fight or conflict that would seem genuine or be exciting, nobody has been really f**ed over by someone else.

The only thing that seems well built up is the big war between everyone and the Father's side. Some intelligent hints and good tension a bit by bit.

Mustang's group is back and they are by far the most interesting part of the plot (I don't think I liked them that much in the first half aside from Havoc).

Is General Oliva an alchemist too? Or was Alex holding back? How the hell did she beat her bro so easily?

It's great to see how the resistance to Father/Homunculi is slowly building up with a couple of every powerful characters on their side. I love Izumi and hope she doesn't die on us anytime soon.

Fantastic Greed/Wrath fight, engaging information exchange, funny Armstrong antics. It was a good episode.

I think Greedling has become my favourite character, with Hohenheim trailing. And then Al.

He always makes the scene for me - really entertaining. I love that he formed a wolf pack with Ed and inevitably made more chimera friends. I like Ling's expression at "rule the world," because Father couldn't have put a better Sin in him since he does have greedy ambitions you wouldn't normally find on the good side. Of course, it won't come to fruition with Roy as Fuhrer.

I also like that Ed doesn't have the stiff pride I've come to expect from protagonists.

One of my favorite episodes. I think it's really cool how they pass the message to each other and lol at Grumman when he touched Rebecca's butt

The information relay was awesome! I loved seeing all of that come together and all the characters working together, despite being separated. And hmm, Ed and the two chimera teaming up with Greed/Ling? That's pretty cool, I like that. Should be an awesome team assuming it lasts. Mei is coming back, meh. We'll see if she's better this time.

Episode eventful, although the last is the one that puts more excitement, a great plan is going to be, as someone has said: "In Spring blossoms determination."
