Nice episode, indeed. Actually I expected Scar or the Homunculus(as they were called now) to attack the boys, but it's not the first time episode of FMA is not ending the way I expected it. So it's living human being, after all. I wonder how the boys are going to do anything about their bodies now.

man so the stone uses humans as sacrifice huh??

Sheska is soo good at remembering things, that fact that she can write a single book let alone multiple books despite being fired quite awhile ago.

plus it seems Edward has alot of money :P

so we learned that the scar man fought the group called homunculus.

and yeah we also learned there are still alot of Ishbal people from all over the land.

i wonder how they'll be able to revert back to their original bodies???

man the plot get's better and better :)

oh god! Gluttony isn't human, that way he survived Scar's attack. Homunculus eh? now Scar gotto handle her too! there's definitely more to this going on as Edward gets closer to unraveling the philosopher's stone!

^ well yeah, ofc Gluttony isn't human. When Lust got "killed" by Dr. Marco in a previous ep, she didn't even die. That should've clarified that her partner in crime isn't human either.

i am not sure if i can predict the ending right since this anime can be pretty surprising but i really feel like i know how it will end now that we know that the philosopher stone needs a living human as sacrifice.

i really loved this episode with knowing more about the philosopher stone and stuff but i wonder now that is known what they will bring next.

scar is really strong if he can fight both the homunculus but i wonder why she said oh there is still someone who believes in us does that mean they are mythical beings or something?? well i guess we will see sooner or later

this shouldn't be so surprising seeing how far he can open his mouth and that he eats living humans i think i would be more surprised if he was actually human lol.

So, no Philosopher's Stone then?? I can understand Ed's frustration.
Dafuq is wrong with Scar.

Really enjoyed this, maybe the best ep so far.

I'm not sure I understand Lust though; she wants them to find the Philosopher's Stone, but didn't seem to mind the library was destroyed? What's up with that?

More Lust and Gluttony, yay! What exactly are they if they can't seem to be killed? And I'm definitely interested in who Lust really is/was from Scar's memories, and what happened to make her the way she is now!

And wow about the ingredient of live human beings... I hadn't given it much thought before, so I didn't see that coming. I don't understand why Lust needs Ed and Al though... -- 4/5

Episode that gives wings to the history both of the two protagonists, that's the main one, many background to come to light, exciting! Good script, the plot apparently going to have a further push in the next episode. The cast expands, I'm happy!

Well that's a massive roadblock. The Philosopher's Stone isn't something that can be easily made, in that case.

Roy needs to find himself a wife LOL

Confrontation between Scar and the homonculi was intense!

Good luck trying to make a philosopher stone now.

Good to see that girl can actually have a job again, despite thinking all she could do was read ... but who the hell can remember so many books O.O

Also the evil duo are "homunculi" or something and we see the Ishbalan's still doing fine despite almost going extinct back then.


How ironic, the Phiosopher's Stone needs live human beings ... and Edward wants to bring his mother back with it, a life for a life. - Equivalent exchange.

We could assume that she knew about Sheska, or is just that confident in Edward's abilities, but I personally have a hard time believing either. Then there's also the matter of how she, Gluttony, & Scar managed to sneak into a government compound in the first place. They already had word that Scar was there, shouldn't there have been more security instead of less?

I really want to like this anime, but it ticks me off how poorly they explain the details. Guess I'll just have to keep watching and hope the explanation is randomly dumped off like with the circle-less transmutation technique.

Sergeant Denny Brosh and 2nd Lt. Maria Ross seem pretty cool so far, I wonder where they'll fit in later. I really liked Sheska being able to recall everything she's read albeit it being quite unrealistic. Lust, Gluttony and Envy being Homunculi explains why Lust didn't need a mask to survive the red water in The Other Brothers Elric or why Gluttony didn't die to Scar. It was such a shame and a huge shock that producing the philosopher's stone requires human lives though!

Great episode, the secret of the stone is revealed, not much different from the manga or the Brotherhood Anime this episode.
I like how the Anime community acts like a bunch of Commie hippies, "We the Anime community!"

It's just a bunch of different circlejerks who all hate each other and their own kind.
