Ownage, Philosopher Stone battle + Mustang coming to save the day and Kimble's death the movement is awesome. I think I agree with Kimble, Al should just get his body back and THEN save everyone else.

Kimblee's annoying, but still, his death is making me baaaw ;o; though I doubt he's truly dead.

HaHA, go Alphonse! Damn that was some brilliant animation for the battle scenes, especially the first one with Al against Pride and Kimblee. Definitely my favorite Al moment up to this point in the anime.

And lol Yoki. See, this is what you get when you take a cowardly character and give him some character development. First anime never had that chance cause Gluttony shot him dead (..which, by the way, how'd he do that? I never quite understood how that happened).

Also, can't wait for next episode. Sheesh, Roy looks deranged in that last preview shot. 0-0

yay for Alphonse and his awesomeness and omg Marcoh and Yoki were useful and wow Heinkel just went right for Kimblee's neck.... and he should've shredded him to pieces so that Pride wouldn't absorb/eat him and wow those immortals are still creepy as ever. Armstrongs ftw!

Kimblee breathing in the end was kind of creepy @_@


I hate to be morbid but I think that was the air escaping through his broken windpipe as he was breathing his final breaths... since didn't they say that was where Mr. Lion bit him or something?

All the battles in the episode were pure win. I was happy to see Pride a little daunted by Al with a Philosopher's Stone, mwahaha. You've got it coming to ya, Pride.

Armstrong against Sloth was AMAZING. I suppose Armstrong won't match up to Mustang until he completely kills one homunculus by himself, too. XD Mustang killed Lust... now Armstrong must kill Sloth. Maybe then he'll get his mansion? ;) Then again, it's Olivier... so who knows~

I love love love these action-packed episodes. BUT ENVY BETTER DIE FO' REAL NEXT EP. He's such a pain. Go Mustang!

Poor Roy D':
Oh Kimblee, you funny dude.
Having a Philosopher's Stone seems reallu convenient. And it'd be convenient if Greedling could use alchemy btw 8D
Roy! x)
The next chapter episode is pretty awesome btw.

I'm a bit disappointed with the anime's adaption here... mainly because the animation quality dipped in and out so many times, ruining some really cool moments from the manga. Also, the adaption held true to the original, except that a lot of the humor was lost... which is a big problem in my book.

6/10 (for the episode adaption)

Aahhh, yet another episode when someone appears as Deus Ex Machina to save someone from the jaws of death. It's become somewhat of a trend lately to bring up such a lame excuse to bring the good guys out, alive and safe from a battle against overpowering enemies. Yoki this time? Damn, that was ridiculous.

The only thing that was achieved there, was making Pride look weak. But he's weak if you think about it. Ever since he was introduced as Pride in the anime, what has he achieved? Kill some nameless soldiers in the tunnels amounts to nothing. Got outsmarted by Al twice. Losing his fight even though he ate up his own comrade to get a power-up. Got ridiculed by Hohenheim and his identity exposed to everyone by Hawkeye, nonetheless. And now, today, made a fool out of himself because of Yoki.

Talk about a disappointing development out of a much anticipated vilain... But what do I expect out of Fullmetal Alchemist?

Sloth was... fast @_@; Too bad that speed comes at a price. Plus, he's definitely a little slow. But Olivier was kinda annoying in this episode. Alex showed her.

Al vs Kimbley+Pride was okay. I expected more out of that. I dunno how I feel about Kimbley; wanted some more badassery from him. Being offed by that chimera surely must have been embarrassing. Him trying to breathe was kinda like that one video I saw where Chechen extremists slit the throat of Russian soldiers @_@; Very f*cking creepy.

Wayyyy too many dolls. Mustang would be a great help I know.

Envy couldn't match up to a little girl? hahaha! That was kinda good. I now hate May Chang a little less.

Biggest surprise? Yoki finally grew some bawlz :P

I'm somewhat disappointed with the recent fights. They don't feel very...smooth, in the sense that I don't get the sense of rush, action, urgency/panic ambiance.

Every minute of this show has been outstanding! I had more than a few WTF moments during this episode. Most of all finding out Sloth is the fastest Homonculus. And FINALLY Kimblee goes down! Thank you!

I think this episode had the worst animation and music in the entire series. It is getting so bad I no longer even want to watch :(

Freaking pig on a bike! this episode was seriously overkill, the animation was incredible, and the entire episode is anime at its best, this is seriouly becoming one of my favorite action series of all time with such an awesome plot.

I'm seriously overdosing here.

Oh Mustang for the rescue huh? I guess he'll just burn those zombie-like things into crisp. Anyways, I love how they put every character in spot light, just like Yoki, although I was laughing when he appeared out of nowhere.

Anyways I wonder how will Sloth die. The armstrong siblings are seriously injured and the other soldiers are being occupied by the zombies. AAAH I guess everything will be over if the father lose.

This was a great episode. Wonderful animation that made me have a glimmer of hope (again) for the possiblities of Al if he were used in any offensive capacity. I'm always in awe of the way he uses alchemy. He's a mix of Ed and Hoenheim--being really strong to put on pressure, but also very tactical--and exactly what I like to see from good guys in this show. Too bad I don't feel like I get enough of it.

Also...whatever happened to the tattoo on Riza's back that's supposed to power up Mustang. That was such point of focus that I don't really get why it hasn't been used yet.


I agree with you 100% on Al. He is my favorite character and yet he never gets the spotlight that Ed gets. Ed gets the acclaim of being the youngest ever state alchemist and prodigy yet Al was able to not only pass but complete the written part of the Alchemy exam which many people couldn't, including Ed, even though he's younger than Ed. His fight with Pride and Kimblee was epic, I just wished he could have finished at least one of them off without getting help.

I was on the edge of my seat for this entire episode!!
Sloth is amazing. I think he's my favorite homonculous.
Pride and Envy just need to die!!
Pride is worse than Gluttony when it comes to devouring people.

Loved the Al vs. Pride/Kimblee fight. Yesss. And now Kimblee's gone. Sad way to die, though.

The Armstrongs were awesome too. <3

Whoah, fights here were quite well done. I almost feel sorry for Kimblee. In FMA he was real bastard, but here he's more like... less bad villain, who just have different point of view on the world.

Kimblee wasn't all that "bad" in this series, he just had a different perspective from everyone else. It's too bad he didn't have a bit more screen time.
