I blame forgetting this week's Fullmetal Alchemis: Brotherhood watching thread on my losses in Vegas. I dunno how that works, but at least I'm home now.

Anyway! The latest episode is online here, and those of us who watched the first series or have read the manga know a bit about what we're in newbies don't, but I'm betting it'll be a good episode, even if it's a bit of a wringer. Hit the comments while you're watching and share your thoughts!

I can't get over how weird Ed looks in that first shot of the OP @_@ He looks so much like the lead from Hero Tale.

Y'know, I've never really understood why Arakawa-sensei decided to go with "Fullmetal Alchemist" as the translation for Hagane no Renkinjutsushi-- hagane really means steel or metal, the "full" addition is a bit odd, especially considering that Ed ISN'T "fully" metal, or even half. No wonder people keep thinking Al is the Fullmetal Alchemist. ;)

Heh time difference over where I am. Though the party is over I suppose...I shall still share my thoughts.

This episode was EXACTLY how it was in the manga, more or less. It was nice seeing Scar finally since he is one of my favorite characters in the series. I believe this is the...first chapter in the second volume? So they're moving right along with things which makes sense. It looks like in the preview we see Eds first encounter with Scar as short as that fight was (it was pretty much just Ed and Al running away from Scar until they came to that alleyway) it was still a decent fight. So here's looking forward to the next episode and hopefully I can make it in time for the party.

Edit: It was so nice seeing Tucker die in this episode instead of him being a chimera throughout the series.

Schwindelmagier: No, I usually account for the time difference and start the thread at 8am, which is 10am CST, which is when the ep goes up...but it slipped my mind this week :)

Well-done, I suppose, for repeating the same material...but at the same time, I feel like the pacing might be too quick and less thoughtful-feeling than the first series, which would matter more for people who are new to the franchise.
