Another very nicely animated episode. I hope this is the standard now as to what we should see from this adaptation. Also very decent pacing, going by how much material they're covering. The show will probably stay at this pace, which is a good sign.

If anime only watchers love to see their Pride acting all twisted and evil, then this is the episode for you. :p

good episode!! another beyond epic, it was a bloody and creepy episode!!

Jeffry2009 2010-03-14 07:22

What in the Hell!? How could that scum Pride Betrays Gluttony & ate him alive!? What the hell is that all about!? :upset:

GaimeGuy 2010-03-14 07:48

Simple: Pride is the focus on oneself above all else. of course Pride would be willing to sacrifice his brothers and sister to save himself. That's what the sin is all about :P

Awesome, awesome epi, Selim was deliciously evil and Roy beginning his coup d'etat made me jizz in my pants :D It was great... But for some reason I thought Roy looked a little strange in this episode...

Indeed. This fight does wonders for Pride's character and him eating Gluttony was actually slightly more disturbing than in the manga, which was nice.

Speaking of Gluttony, it is pretty sad how the point of his entire character is to make the good guys look cool by getting beat up over and over again.

Chapter only covered one episode, but the pacing was fine and makes me wish they'd go with a 1 chapter per episode ratio more often.

Only problem I had with the episode was that they didn't do these awesome Ed panels justice:

I did too haha, I think it was his hair. It didn't look right at all. Olivier also looked poorly drawn this week as well.

I agree, it's a bummer. =/

This was a decent episode overall, I'm loving the 1 chapter per episode, but it's funny when you look back at the beginning and see how fast everything happens and how it starts slowing down durin the Briggs arc. It's understandable though.

We've come to expect that from this adaptation, which is a shame.

Great music placement this week, along with Pride eating Gluttony which was 100 times more creepy then the manga thanks to sound effects. Episode get's a 10/10 from me.

Krazzy Angel 2010-03-16 09:05

I was going to give a 10/10 but the way the characters was drawn compelled me from not doing so.

so i herd there waz an urthquake warning? oh well. we'll make due like we did last time, except we won't have Winry's underboob to tide us through.

It's just a few beeps and a warning sign that doesn't last for that long. Nothing major.

germanturkey 2010-03-16 15:38

ah, i was half expecting a map again. anywho, this ep moved along swiftly. it was okay as far as i'm concerned. Gluttony getting eaten was pretty freaky. chomp chomp chomp.

I kinda felt sorry for him in this episode. All he did was cry while getting beaten up, and then he gets eaten by his "brother"... he was fodder to the end.

It was the "Help me Lust." which really hit me. :(

Noe 2010-03-16 18:32

Pride now ate Gluttony. Pretty sympathetic.

GaimeGuy 2010-03-16 18:49

Gluttony was always a giant punching bag, even in the first half of the series.

IIRC, he attacks scar on 7 or 8 different occasions, and gets blown up from the inside each time. It's kind of funny XD

Heh, all I really remember about Gluttony is that wailing howling scream of his...

Gluttony always was fodder, which you have to wonder if it was intentionally ironic, considering. Anyway I noticed some of the bad animation scenes and it didn't bother me too much. The episode was awesome and pride is one evil SOB. I hope his defeat is glorious.

No surprise there. Many religious scholars consider pride to be the worst of the seven sins, and the one from which the others arise. Of course Pride the Homunculus is going to be the oldest and most evil... ^_^
