Are we ready for ep 3 of Fullmetal Alchemist Brotherhood? Good! Here's where to get the video.

What new appearances do you think we'll get this time?

All righty!
And I of course will be joining in again, I have quite a bit to share about this episode this time! ^^

Ahhhh, a deja vu episode. I wonder what, if anything, they'll do to make this different from the first time they covered this, the first episode of the original series?

Gia: Her hair looks darker and skin tone lighter, or am I just seeing things?

Schwindelmagier: Definitely. All of Lior's seems a bit lighter...I wonder if they're trying to avoid pissing off Middle Easterners or something?

Again, feeling pretty confident that the animation isn't as good as the original, even if it's not bad.

Well, THAT was new. Rose with a gun. Weird...

They got to a scene that, in the old series happened near the end of the episode...in the middle of the episode this time. o:

Yeah, I'm a little sad that Rose's hair is more red and less pink now :/

That transformation was new, too...

Wow, they shortened that arc a fair bit. Wasn't it two episodes originally? And didn't Father Cornello make a second chimera, for Rose? That wasn't in the manga though. But I liked the early inclusion of the horror that is the chimera.

...Then again, looking at the next episode's preview...I think we'll get plenty of that soon anyway.

Well, since I've gotta get ready for work I may as well post my thoughts on this episode now.

To be honest, I wasn't too happy with this one...actually I didn't like the two-parter original either. They took what was originally a two part episode and made it into one. I think the main reason I didn't like the episode was the lack of homunculi, I mean sure Lust and Gluttony were there at the end and they had their share, but yeah, this episode didn't really impress me all too much. Two things that I didn't like were that they changed Roses hair color and skin tone that was kind of irksome..AND the fact that they had Cornello transform into this huge mutated beast of a man. I guess the fake philosophers stone has some hella nasty side effects. xD

Anyway, this whole party thing has been great so far, hope to see more threads to come! ...if only there was cake. o:

Bah, the streaming speed has been absolutely terribe for episode 3. So frustrated, taken me over an hour to get all of it (on a really fast connection and compared to last weeks and the week before).
