Yep. Should air this week.

mageormike 2009-07-12 03:13

still watching the broadcast, but I just have to say the new OP is freaking sweet. :D

That is all.

Sidestep 2009-07-12 03:15

Urk, I missed the OP. T_T Oh well.

shiroandfubuki 2009-07-12 03:39

As far as quick first impressions of the new OP and ED go... I liked the OP quite a bit. They did this monochromatic effect thing at the beginning, too, that was really cool.

The ED was a bit "standard," to use others' words, but not bad. The letterbox widescreen that they used for it made it stand out a bit more to me than it would have otherwise, which is a good thing, of course. :)

In other words, I still like Again and USO better, but Hologram and Let it Out are by no means horrible. (Though Hologram>Let it Out, IMO.)

Omniscient 2009-07-12 05:11

This was a pretty good episode. New OP and ED sequences always make the episodes themselves seem better, but I also liked seeing the new characters, and Miyano Mamoru did a nice job as Ling.

Luckily, I've uploaded both the OP and ED :)

I thought Hologram was about as good as Again and LET IT OUT was much better than Uso. For whatever reason, I liked Uso less the more I heard it.

Nakamura is in the animation credits for the OP. <3 <3 <3 <3

Not a bad episode really. Let's see:

-The new introduction for May was done well enough, plus there's a demonstration of her alchemy (as well as in the new OP), so it works out fine. They kept in her image of Ed, so i'm happy. :heh:

-Barry's scene made me laugh quite a bit, as it did in the manga. I can't tell if they missed out a few of my favorite lines, so i'll have to check back with that in the subs. Riza with her hair down shall always be a wonderful sight.

-I'm not that happy with Miyano Mamoru voicing Ling. Sure he did a good job, though it's not the voice i've always had in my head when i picture Ling, or read the manga. It doesn't help that Miyano is in everything these days, and there's never much change in his voice. It'll take some getting used to. The fight was animated quite well, as shown in the preview last week. I don't think we'll be seeing any complaints here.

-Ranfan is adorable. Nana Mizuki does a good job.

-The preview doesn't show the scene i've been on about in the spoiler thread. :(

As for the OP and ED. I quite like them, especially some of the later scenes shown in the OP which are events to come.

Yep, already watched them both. I appreciate the upload. :)

Anyways, the OP is really good, about the same level as "again" for me. The ED hasn't really stuck to me yet.

Charred Knight 2009-07-12 05:47

Just saw the opening. Incredible especially Ling vs. Wrath. Will have more when I watch the episode this thursday.

Sannom 2009-07-12 05:59

It was a really good episode in my opinion. Great animation and drawings, and the events reorganisation was good I think, especially about May's introduction (I laughed when I saw Scar trying to pet Shao May :D )... I would say something but I think that can be considered as spoilers for the manga, so I won't.

That OP contained a lot of scenes that were directly taken from the manga if you ask me, the last one being the most prominent. Can't wait for that part by the way. Scenes with Bradley fighting against Lin, Ran Fan and Who were epic.

The humor in this one was good, not overly exagerated. And finally we got to see Alphonse transmuting without a circle (that scene is as hilarious as ever :D ).

touge-n00b 2009-07-12 06:35

Lan Fan = episode WIN! :D

Kirarakim 2009-07-12 07:32

Disappointed in Mei's introduction and the way they rushed through the Barry the Chopper scenes (no Roy threatening Barry scene=Boo).

At least they didn't cut Falman from the scene because I feel they have not been giving Roy's subordinates their due in the anime (with the exception of Havoc) so I was also very happy to see that scene of all of them in the new opening.

Anyways the rest of the episode was quite fun. I wasn't sure if I would like Miyano as Ling and although his voice is everywhere now I thought he was great here. All of Ling's scenes made me smile just as much as they did in the manga. I think they revealed that Ling was a prince a little too soon though.

As for other new voices Ran Fan's voice is perfect and probably my favorite of the 3. Mei's voice while fitting is a bit too high pitched for me and my least favorite.


I am also thrilled they didn't cut the "pride of the older brother thing" because that was one of my favorite panels in the manga. And now the first anime viewers can start to see just how cool Al will be in the manga. I love manga!Al so much it just needs to be said.

Finally I really enjoy the new OP & ED. As for the OP I did like the song Again more but I love this new opening sequence, so many later scenes that I can't wait to see animated. Including a scene from my favorite chapter 53. :D

And I think the new ending while not as fun as Uso is very pretty.

Overall not a perfect episode but it does get a 9 because it was very enjoyable. :)

Hell yeah! :D

I wonder which part he did. I only watched it in low quality but maybe is 0:57 - 1:13? Too bad I have to wait Wednesday to watch the full episode in HD...

I haven't seen it in HD either, so I'm not going to comment on that. :)

Kirarakim 2009-07-12 08:46

It's good to see Nakamura is on board. Hopefully he will be animating some of the later action sequences in the story. :)

Vicious108 2009-07-12 09:44

Haven't seen the episode yet, but man the opening is amazing. It's like they wasted half of their budget on it.

Though it does contain a fair bit of foreshadowing, especially about some of the homunculi, and hints for future fights as well.

It's not just Nakamura too. It's most of the usual BONES crew who worked on the original FMA as well as Sword of the Stranger. Awesome OP. :D

Ziziphus 2009-07-12 10:13

Wow, great OP and ED! They really hyped me up a lot! :)

I really like the new ED, both the song and the sequence. Simple, but very pretty and emotional.

I only watched the raw but my, this ep was funny as hell it made me laugh very hard! :heh: Enjoyable episode really!
