It was a great episode. I did not expect Huges to die. It seems like this series will far more interesting than I originally thought.

Welp, the inevitable happened. Much earlier in this series than the other one. They're really rushing through what took about 25 episodes to do in the first series aren't they? Hmm, well, still sad seeing Hughes die once again. Sigh..

WHAT THE FUCK MAN MY MAN HUGHES DIED? WHAT THE FUCKING SHIT IS GOING ON MAN I THOUGHT HE'S ONE OF THE MAIN CHARACTERS AND YET HE DIED IN A SINGLE DIGIT EPISODE NUMBER (Episode 9). Okay I'm done crying but seriously I didn't expect this happening.

This is starting to feel like it's a thriller/suspense series, and I like it. How ironic was that when Ed, Al, and Win were talking about Hughes the same time he was killed, lmao lol. Also, wtf how did that black dressed girl got into the building? I'm thinking that someone let her in. That or she just snuck in, lol.

Anways, I'm so excited to see the Elric brother's master. They're going to go there to be stronger. Yes that's what I'd like to see, some training. :3

Except that this was episode 10, not episode 9. So he died in the first double-digit episode.

Poor Hughes, he died so soon, it's so sad, like babykeiji, I really cried when Elicia shouted, I wonder what will happen to Ed, Ad and Win if they know this,


I hated that, but I have to admit, I did cry too when Elicia was like "Stop! Don't bury him"
I can't help it, it does make me cry each time I see that part...She doesn't know he's dead already...

Ed and Al wanted to thank him when they come back...Also Winry....I guess that'd be much of a nasty surprise and a shock.

I hope they get stronger so that they can prevent such tragedies from flaring again..

We'll miss you Hughes, or at least I will. 。゚(゚ノД`゚)゚。

Yeah, the death of Hughes was sadder in the last series because he had a bit more screen time. But the man was pretty awesome, it sucks we never got to see him fight...

Hughes was given more screen time in the previous series because there were like 20 more episodes before the funeral. This is only episode 10.

I thought Elicia crying wasn't as sad as the original series though. She didn't have as much insistence about Hughes doing work.

Although the raining scene was so much more emotional in Brotherhood. I think Riza not understanding at first followed by the tear make it so much more gut-wrenching.

Still a great episode. RIP Brigadier General Maes Hughes

I actually found this sadder than the original anime and manga, maybe because Elicia was so great in this one and the relationship beetween Roy and Hughes seemed closer than in the original anime. I definitely cryed a lot more in this one

Not as well handled as the original, but still made my throat dry beyond nearly anything else I've seen, mainly because he was always my favourite FMA character.

Is this how quickly Hughes dies in the manga?!

I really hope they just decided to rush his death in this series because they assume we've all watched the previous adaptation. Otherwise it's both sad and odd that one of the most popular characters of the show is only around for such a short time. :|

He was only around the first few volumes.

And Hughes's overall popularity is higher here than in Japan.

Thanks for that.
I guess I've always assumed Hughes was popular because, well, he is very popular in BL doujinshi. Then again, that's a completely different demographic.

I don't know about the first series , but they killed him here too quickly..

It's sad , but i can't be that emotional , because you know.. this is 10/64 and he didn't get much character development.

This. I starting sobbing when Elicia went all "Why are they burying papa?"

And Roy's "It's raining" line was great. Thumbs up.

I've been loving the series so far but seriously this episode really pissed me off. They really went overboard with the super deformed animation and Lust is once again at exactly the right spot at exactly the right time, but what annoyed me is this.



It made it really hard for me to feel sad when he died even though I liked him as a character, especially since they right after the incident jumped to the cheerful train scene before I had the chance to fully take in the moment.

There are no “private” or “public” matters involved. Aiming to become Fuhrer-President and avenging Hughes’ death... are both my will as an individual. This words deserve to be remembered forever.
And for anything else in this episode... I'm not going to comment it, Hughes' death is enough for the episode, not to mention the anime at all.

Great episode.

I already got spoiled of Hughes' death but still it was touching as if I've never got spoiled.

Roy Mustang seems cool btw. :)

This was damn sad... I mean, the guy had a family... And he totally loved them. That scene when Elecia was saying "Don't bury papa!" really got to me. But what did he find out exactly? Why was he killed? I can't connect the dots from what he said to himself while he was in the library. And how the hell did Lust get inside the building? Isn't that supposed to be hard? Crap, I'm just left with lots of questions. Roy was pretty cool in the end of the episode too. And Riza seems to have a reason for following him too. I really wanna find out all that. Glad I picked this up during summer vacation^^

The Fuhrer's meeting with Hughes seemed like an important plot point that wasn't included in the original. Interesting timing of events.

So far this anime is way too crammed. Hughes death was as emotional as watching grass grow.

Scene was much better in the original. So far this anime has been okay to good at best. I hear they deviate from the original anime and into the original manga in episode 13/14. I just hope so, because so far the amount of stuff they crammed into these past 10 episodes has been insane, and storyline pacing has been rushed.

No doubt most of the high scores been received from the original manga materiel, but its been hard viewing for the first 10 episodes and I LOVE both the orignal (depite the fillers which were great) and the Manga.

I wasn't really crazy about how Hughes died at first, but after watching FMA again a few years later, it's a bit saddening this time around cause he really was a good father/person.

Woah that was quick. Was this episode aired that quickly in the original series? (its been awhile) xD

As for the episode, dayum, that was so sad and unfortunate. I saw it coming (obviously), but it was still sad nonetheless. ;-;

I really have no idea why some people think this is rushed. It may be shocking but, Hughes isn't really all that important a character. What this episode was meant to do is give some background on Mustang and give him some added motivation as well as show that there is a conspiracy in the military. I thought it was a really well directed episode, particularly from the death scene on. I liked how they inter-cut the children into the mix of the funeral, his daughter's reaction, and Mustang's "It's raining" line.

Even though it was a sad episode it was a great episode, they really made a great compact version of this tragic scene! Maes Hughes you'll be missed! It's sad that he didn't came to much in these couple of episodes bcs in the original you saw him more as a bigger role and it was even more tragic to see him get killed!

Even though great episode!

I agree, and I think the really heavy dramatic score didn't help. Something with more sorrow, perhaps? I didn't feel as much as I should during this scene. =(

yeah it kinda felt like their rushing Hughes death.

next thing the fight ends just like that, then next he walks towards a booth then went outside out of nowhere.

the original was more slow paced, heck he even get's to kill the imposter Ross then Envy quickly switches to Gracia.

here he just switch to Ross then to Gracia.

they also didn't show how Hughes and Roy came to a agreement that Hughes will help Roy get to the top since he looked like a drunk man who has no ambition.

they didn't also show Ed seeing Hughes at the train stop, making him wonder why he's there.

the dialogue is pretty much the same though

it's good to watch the first season right after since your memory of it is fresh and you'll be able to compare the differences between the two.

overall it's still amazing episode.

Hughes is much more bloody and he get's to say one last thing before he dies.

I've finished the series quite some time ago, but heck, I can come back here and give my three cents still. And if I were to pick the best episode of the FMA:B, it would definitely be... difficult. But I think this one is a prime candidate for me.

Before this episode, despite all this talk about transmuting humans' souls and stuff, I imagined FMA to be just another adventure, shonen or something. Boy, I was proved wrong and this episode was what made me realize that.

Before episode 10 I thought Hughes was just a comic relief. And while his cheerfulness and easy-going nature helped him play that role well, there was much more to that. And all this emotional-foreshadowing! Hughes pestering everybody with all this stuff about his family? Roy getting annoyed by his carefree attitude? You come back to previous episodes and suddenly the "jokes" aren't that funny anymore. In fact, they make you cry.

Also. I love "comic reliefs" who turn out to be clever bastards (solved the mystery of the whole anime tens of episodes before anybody else) and/or the greatest of friends despite the "he just hangs around and is annoying" thing going on most of the time (Roy, dude, I can see how much you'd like to go back on dome of your words now).

Personally I like to think that the "It's raining" line is a foreshadowing to the last (and the best) opening song of the anime, titled RAIN, which in turn I like to think is a tribute to Hughes. Hey, don't question me.

Disclaimer: I did not and do not intend to watch the first anime. No matter how good it might be, I wanted to see the story the Author wanted to tell. Besides, I heard the characters were all messed around with in that one, good guys being bad and vice versa, I don't see how it could work for me at all. I guess it's good the first anime was made, since it gained popularity and made the Brotherhood a) possible and b) BUDGET'D AS F*CK, but after Brotherhood got made, there's really no reason to watch the first one IMO. Aside from "what the heck is this, lol, they got it all wrong" feeling. Which some enjoy. I don't.

HUGHES!
