He's so adorable.

I hope you meant Pride there, and not the giant, musclebound, tunnel digging freak...

Hahahaha I hope u mean pride too, unless u have unique taste XD

Yes, I mean Sloth, that giant dope.
I suppose my taste is a tad unique, yet I think he's adorable.

First thing I noticed. Story is good, and then this episode started with two character failing hard.

'I've just been told that these things are immortal. They're not paying attention to me right now, I should pull out a gun and start shooting them!'

Then Edward himself, finds a big door closed, has a conversation with a clearly stronger guy on his side, and then tries to open the doors himself. Doesn't even try to alchemy them open somehow, tries to pull them open. *facepalm*

At least the rest of the episode made up for the stupid with greatness. But those.. ugh.

The new op/ed didn't really seem to fit. Kinda suprised me when I started watching. Maybe they'll grow on me eventually, but the former ones seemed to fit where the story is headed better. Just stick new images behind them would have been fine.

You don't need to see anything to get a sense of a person's interest. Can't you listen to a CD and hear if the musicians are actually into what they're playing? It's the same here, Al should have been able to tell something was up with Pride long before.
Maybe it hadn't been that long (Ed had said good-bye earlier that morning, hadn't he?) but it still seems like something you'd question.
Maybe it was just starting to tickle his mind when the homonculus realized what it was and shouted though.

Didn't Ed and Al use morse code themselves earlier though? Or was that the other anime?

I like all the OPs and EDs, though these ones seem... less powerful somehow? Not sure how to describe it. Anyway, they were okay.

... Envy's back. D:

I loved Armstrong's appearance, hahaha. And man, those immortal doll things remind me of the vampire-things from "I am Legend". Plain freaky. Hopefully everything will still turn out in favour of our beloved heroes in the end... D:

That episode was OUTSTANDING! Though the beginning was pretty disturbing. Gluttony's dead... or something, but we're still seeing people eaten alive. The rest of the episode I just watched dream matchup just come together. Alex Louis Armstrong versus Sloth?! YAY! Alphonse taking on Kimblee? YAY! Seeing Pride & Kimblee together just reminds me how much I want them dead. Seriously Al! Stop being a victim & kick somebody's ass!

Wow so many grand entrances and spot lights on a single episode. The Major, Alphonse, that lion guy, etc. This Anime is definitely going to be 1 of my favorites. I mean who could deny its greatness?

Okay so they made a zombie-like enemies now, lol. Oh and guess what, Envy's back too, great.

As I really will be rather pissed off.

Also agree that last OP was better.

Scar is a frickin tard for trusting Envy with that little Chinese girl. It makes no sense she would even bring it back to Xing since its not like owning a homunculus will make you immortal or anything.

Blah. It's not like I dislike Brotherhood. But judging the way things go in it, the overall feeling at the end would hardly resemble the one I got while I was watching FMA.
New OP and ED so soon? I like the OP because of the AMV and the ED is just OK.

Envy is back! (Why am I a bit happy about this? xD)
Alphonse was quite badass at the end, I hope it'll be a nice fight.
And I'm also guessing Roy Mustang will get a new car design. Hoping he has better taste than Ed xD

New OP is great, imo - at the level of the last one, although a lot calmer. New ED is... well, I guess it'll grow on me too.

The new OP sucks. And why is it that Ed gets more screen time in it? I hate that. Even though Ed is my favorite character, Al is just as important. It's not fair.

Well, I thought Envy was harmless unless Father meddled with him. But apparently he can regain his form by himself. I guess Scar didn't know that either.

New Opening and Ending...I like them.
The voice singing the opening sounded familiar so I searched it was the rock group SID which had previously recorded "Monochrome no Kiss" among others for Kuroshitsuji!

Great new OP and ED both are strong with getting the right visual over! The episode was also quite nice, envy is back though so she might give some trouble, the armstrong battle with sloth was also quite nice but definitely the ending when Alphones receiving the stone!

Let's see what's next!

the new op and ed are great but i prefer the 1st and 4th OP/ED

still the new scenes gets us a glimpse on what's to come.

man the immortal army is pretty brutal.

guess alot and i mean ALOT of people in XerXes died huh??

pretty surprising to see Number 66 and Barry's corpse around there.

didn't his true body killed him??

lol Ed can't open the door, yet Scar seems to be able to open it.

probably his hand??

Olivier as brutal as always ^^

love her face :)

Ed and gang beating the hell out of this monsters :P

so Heinkel notices the morse code huh!

of course his a soldier after all.

man Heinkel is already injured and get's blasted on by Kimblee


why does Pride sound very different?

guess without the echoing voice huh??

im really pissed at May Chang.

so stupid of you to carelessly go back, now Envy has regained form

good to see Alex back in action :)

been waiting to see him for awhile :P

Olivier you should be thankful for him!

so Heinkel dies :(

so Al finally uses a philosopher stone!!!!

Al is pissed all right :D

man im getting too addicted on this ^^

let's go Al and Ed!!!!!

You guys have such low standards.... What exactly happened in this episode apart from Pride breaking free?
To be honest this episode was lame... can't believe they filled this ep with so much stupidity.
Scientist: ''Oh wait let me shoot these fucks WE made to be immortal with a single handgun. That outta work!''
Olivier: ''Oh wait let me shoot this guy we couldn't put a dent in with cannons and bazooka's with a handgun. No? Grenade then! That should do the job!''
Alphonse: Blows his legs off and is surprised his legs no longer work ''Dafuq is this shit? You stupid legs!''
Kimblee: ''Let me blow away this smoke that has been created by an explosion with.... AN EXPLOSION!''
May Chang, nuff said.
Ed&Co: ''Let's fight a gazillion of these things that can't die and at the same time lock ourselves up with them''
And probably more which i already forgot about.

Don't get me wrong guys I know this is anime and these things happen in almost every show. The thing that really annoys me is how they put so much stupidity in a SINGLE episode. Every single scene that we got to see had one of these happening.
Still i rated it a generous 3/5 because up till now pretty much every episode was enjoyable.

/end rant

There was one good scene though. When Alex made his entrance!

Stupid May Chang. I've never liked her character, always felt like she was just a token loli in an otherwise brilliant roster of characters, and now she goes and does the stupidest thing ever. Now I have to put up with Envy's stupid, arrogant mutt again. I hope they kill him soon.

General Armstrong gave a Homunculus a fight with just a sword, gun and a grenade. She'll a hell of a fighter.

Alphonse has no choice but to take a PS. I hope it has no adverse effects on him later on.

As long as Heinkel-san is all right in the end >.<

I already knew Pride was doing morse code -.-" I guess it wouldn't be much of a series unless the bad guys are let out, haha.
May Chang is still a kid for getting tricked by Envy like that >.>

Alex Louis Armstrong will always crack me up with his flashy flexing appearance xD

Lmao the scientist was such an idiot, there is an exit there and he chose to shoot down the "immortal" army? LOL.

The mid-break "hehehe, Fullmetal Alchemist" was funny lol. Parasite Envy was funny too, freakin Envy is back!

Yo, Alex's back too! Armstrong siblings tag team! And Al, he looked so freakin badass at the end, incredibly so! Seriously, I can never understand their stubbornness of not using the Philosopher's stone, I mean it's too late now to save those people within the stone, so why not make use of them, just like the Heinkel dude said, to save the good and destroy the evil. If this was Ed I think he will be wishy washy and act like a little kid and choose not to use the stone, I am glad that this is Al.

I like the OP, not sure how I feel about the ED yet, as always.

I love the new op!

But Al...destroying his own legs and then what? what did he think would happen next? I understand their promise but that was plain stupid, he was lucky the stone was given to him. I really don't remember another anime I enjoyed as much as FMA: B yet I found the main characters so annoyingly naive and acting so idiotic at times that I felt like punching them.

I also noticed some clunky animation at times during the last few episodes, I mainly refer to the characters faces during certain parts of the episode.
