A rather delightful episode I must say. I am not going to compliment Yoki's silent movie cause thats old news to me, in other words, things may not be that funny the second time around but still good for Yoki (getting some screen-time). The only part I did find rather amusing during his silent movie was when cute lil Ms Armstrong threw that piano at Yoki, gosh beautiful Armstrong girls are sooo deceiving!

What I am curious about is the whole interaction between Scar and Winry. Could it be that their heart to heart has brought Winry some closure? Could it be that some friends become enemies and some enemies become friends? Ohh noooess!!!!

IMO this was probably the funniest episode of FMA to date, glad they finally put in a bit of Yoki's backstory, although I wish they could've also used it to explain May's presence in Amestrias as well.

Good stuff, good stuff. The brothers' synchrony was awesome and how they dealt with the chimera was hilarious.

Shame we have to wait two weeks to see one of the best scenes from the manga.
I found it unique and clever. They skipped over that so this was a great way to tell those who didn't watch the first series what happened. The only problem I had with it was it was a little too long.

They already told us that May is there to investigate immortality.

Al's anime original line "I'm a two timer?" was also nicely done. Forgot to mention that.

I liked that one. So many romance protagonists would benefit from a realization like that.

In the manga May appears in a different fashion which I liked much more, and showed immediately the differences in alchemy and Xin alchemy.

Episode XXXVIII: Clash in Baschool

I don't think it's too good of an idea to immerse down Yoki's memory lane, since the road trip to PastVille detracted me a little bit from the main fights in this episode.

Spoiler for First FMA:


Ok. Ed's gung-ho behavior and jokes were fine gold, preceded by Al's two-timer quote, and May's jealosy streak upon watching Winry coming out from Al's armor.

Alright, we needed even more fights with Scar against the chimeras, and the Elric Brothers against the chimeras.

It was just awestruck cool all the action, and the oozing attacks.

Spoiler:


BTW, for the newcomers FMA: Brotherhood takes a break due to New Years' Eve. So no FullMetal Alchemist episode until January the 10th.


Happy New Year's Eve!

Spoiler for First FMA:
The whole flashback was told in an biased way since it was Yoki telling it. At least I thought that scene was purposely skewed to show he wasn't telling it exactly like it went down.

I think someone at Bones was watching a little too much Yugioh the abridged series.

The part where Ed is acting psychotic because of his new automail is hilarious.

That was a pretty fun flashback. Damn you do not want to try and rob the Armstrong family. Love the one girl chucking a piano at him .

A touching moment though when Mustang made that phone call. It's really too bad that Riza can't feel comfortable talking even in her own home. The stress of knowing Pride could be watching at any time has to be overwhelming.

Ed and the new automail was a classic scene.

the artwork seems a lot better as of the last two episodes. hmm. have yet to watch 38, but it has a few great moments in it based on where it is in the manga.

Great episode. Yoki's silent movie flashback, was awewsome, especially some of Edward's expressions. and the break in to the Armstrong house. and 'AHHHHH!, chucks piano" I laughed through the whole scene. Got some Guyver vibes during the Chimera scene, might have to rewatch the greed episodes, but I don't remember Chimera's changing like that.

Definitely one of the better episodes of Brotherhood. I loved the Yoki flashback, especially Ed's evil grin. I also liked the fillerish scenes of Yoki meeting the Armstrong sisters. It was nice to get that scene in with Catherine and the piano somehow.

Normally I don't like when Brotherhood switches the order of events around. But this time I liked how they showed Scar abducting Winry before something else.

Overall I was pleasantly surprised with this episode. Besides the Yoki bits, Ed and Al's fight with the chimeras were very funny. I also loved the black/white/blue scene with Olivier & Buccaneer. It was nice to see that scene in color so to speak.

It's a shin guard. Remember Winry said that the Northern automail will be lighter but it will also lose some strength in the process. She gave that to him to replace some of the strength.

I agree, but man they made Buccanear's grin way freakier than it was in the manga.

So there is no FMA 39 this week? agrr well at least Heroes is back!

Anywho, if I was Ed I would at this point be thinking that not having his human arm and leg might not be such a bad thing after all. I mean having a chick like Winry around taking care of the mechanic certainly has its perks and without automail well.... half of Winry's purpose would fly out the window.

At any rate I really love how this second version gets Winry involved a lot more in the whole plot of the series cause in the first one she was just a very cute fixture.
