Another cliffhanger! DX
Omg, what happened to Winry? And they didn't even showed Armstrong this time, wonder why.
The narrator said in the end: "God" is an invention of those with nobody else to turn to.
Can't wait for 61 ._.

Nah, this episode was out-of-this-world, but it was nowhere as surreal nor as bizarre as End of Eva.

There we go, Eclipse were slacking off~ =3=
Hah? What'd they do to the OP? Was there always a Truth-version of Winry? xD..

Anyway, Bradley vs. Scar is still so badass~
And the world wide transmutation.. No comment.

Now then, can we have some nuclear fusion? : 3

Awesome! I'm all for planet-destroying entities! What a dammed epic cliffhanger at the end there too!
But umm... I'm assuming there's not really a "God" being in the story, right? The voice-over narrator at the end sounded very convincing there for a second, but then again, it wasn't really canon though. But if true, in FMA, God's merely a "system" then? Hmm.

I know this was supposed to be epic and all, but I just couldn't feel it. It's probably because I watched the second Evangelion movie the other night. That was so epic that I was sweating and standing up sitting down squirming in my seat and, even though that was only the midpoint of the Rebuild and this is nearing the finale of Brotherhood, opening the gate to God here just seemed lackluster in comparison. Maybe because it wasn't specifically focalized?

It was also a lot more tame than I was expecting, as, from last week's preview, I thought the country was going to straight up die when the ring activated (though undoubtedly to be saved somehow later), but it seemed more like an exaggerated faint. Going back to focalization, I could have more agony on the part of the heroes and shots from their perspectives. I did like the inclusions of the living Hughes and Rockbells in the destruction montage though.

Well , if bones had money from selling the same crap over and over again . Then i guess even they'd have it in them to MAKE MOVIE RENDITIONS of stuff and milk the franchise till eternity (and make somethin look flashy and stuff ).
you can't compare a movie adaptation to a weekly anime . The budget is limited , human resources are limited as well .
Any movie for that matter would give me an epic feel over a 25 minutes weekly episode .
For example , shamballa gave me the epic feel which fma 1 did not . (mind you , fma1 had a better story)

Was away from the internet for a while, and [Eclipse] guys were having a post exam celebration hangover (and thus the delay).

Yeah, it looks bad to me, indecisive things always ruin a show, and this could be the last thing i ask for an anime i loved so much thus far. this is the first time i didn't see the raw and i waited for [Eclipse]. Somehow i thought it was dragged a bit, would have loved to see Scar putting an end to Bradley, overall, the series was excellent, but still somehow i felt a bit hollow, may be because its nearing the end, which i don't want, but again, changing the length this late seems a bit odd, and hopefully they were well aware of this beforehand and just wanted to give us a surprise (this better be it)

also, i would rather see a full length movie in coherence with the manga than requiring an extra episode to cover the chapters. well thats my opinion only :/

If this was in any way a response to me, keep in mind that my first point was that any inadequacy I felt existed on FMA's part was primarily to due to watching NGE in proximity, not that this episode was necessarily less than epic in itself -- though there are certain elements that I would have liked to see done differently, as I believe doing so would have heightened its emotional impact further.

And, yes, I recognize that there's a difference between what a full length feature film and a television episode are able to do.

I'm so glad I waited a measly extra day for Eclipse's version. I don't get why people felt the need to go with TMD for such a short delay. You lowered the experience for yourselves. Oh well.

I was expecting the Bradley-Scar fight to end this episode. I guess that'll be next episode. The pacing is nice though. I guess they're leaving the final episode to cover the last manga chapter. It's going to be an extra long chapter this month, so either they'll use all of episode 64 for it, or the last part of 63 and finish it off in 64.

I can't wait for the chapter release. I find myself checking every day for it on mangastream.

Okay this is a much better news, from ANN

"64th, the final episode of the Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood anime series will air on July 4 (Sunday) in Japan. The episode will match the final chapter of the manga, which will be published in the July issue of Square Enix's Monthly Shonen Gangan magazine on Friday."

So the Manga will be available on 2nd of July (Friday), TV series will end in 4th (Sunday). Now thats something to look up to. now i can easily rest assured that the ending will be great!

/me is relieved. whew.

@chicanerous . . I get your point .

@shanimebib . . Have you read the manga recently . Have you seen the length of the chapters . Each chapter from now on is 60pages+ in length . This is the best thing bones could have done .
P.S . The last chapter has more than 80 pages . Hence , the 64 episode count makes sense :)

That's the rule if the series in question is moderately popular or more than that, since there're those unpopular ones (that are really good, some of them) but no one knows about, and there're no 1/5-trolls there : D
Uhm. Yeah, /random

unfortunately no lol, but yeah, like i said, since the manga will be serialized on the first friday issue of July, i can totally understand that the anime couldnt have a better ending date just on the first sunday of july.

brotherhood is still my fav anime, and i hope it remains there, the only anime to ever get into my top 10 while still ongoing :)

may be i wasnt in a proper FMA mood, as i watched it after coming home from the uni with a tired day. may be a rewatch will do me a good job, will do that this weekend :)

well its not like anything new, i have seen almost all the episodes more than once already :D

"Feels good, man", come on people that's old; although I still use it from time to time.

And thus, for the first time, humanity knew despair... Quote from Gantz, I thought it fit quite well with the ending of this episode. Also, MIND=BLOWN.

meh ep was nothing special. Read it before and thought it was a poor chapter so of course the anime does nothing to make it better.

The whole god thing just does not sit well with me. My least favorite part of the series. 2 out of 5

Last 5 minutes of this episode reminded me of The End of Evangelion movie. The way that father got bigger and interacted with sun/moon and stuff. Well I think this is totally epic, yet not completely original.

i hope (for your sake) you eat your words once the final battle concludes . All he's done is use up the entire population of amestris , to pull TRUTH down to earth .
What did you expect him to do wit the power obtained from the souls of 50 million people , Extend his IMMORTALITY . Ha ha ha .
Fma has always involved truth . . So whats over the top if truth gets overpowered .

Oh by the way, I totally agree with this post. The anime is greatly leaning towards a to-be shit ending.

Indeed. Everything else was probably realistic to you, too.

Yes, it totally doesn't suit the series at all... except for something -very- similar happening about 20 episodes ago in Xerxes.

So what did YOU expect them to do with a countrywide transmutation circle?

Seriously, with a fricking NATIONWIDE transmutation circle, whatever happens is -going- to be huge and catastrophic. With 59 episodes of epic setup, with setting up the "Promised Day" and all that, anything less than what happened would be anticlimactic.

Yeah, the final chapter of the manga (108) is coming out in like 2 days. Heh.

Plus, I'm pretty sure the final chapter will be split over episodes 63 and 64, with 63 also including the end of chapter 107.
