You're not alone, I also thought that they significantly improved the animation quality. Good sign

EP 44 thoughts

About Greed X Ling Yao, Imagine how it reminds where during Gundam 00 times (Where Setsuna & Graham are both same VA)..

Oddties:-

- Why did bido running scared after he seen just mannequin figures?

- during before the car chase scene, how did Darius & Heinkel managed to get a car in a 1st place?

Yes, yes it was. *insert hallelujah smiley here*

Looks like they're going to be putting everything they've got into the final arc.

As a huge GreedLing fan, I loved the scenes at the end of the episode: The flashbacks and light bulb memories Greed experienced + the anguish, along with Ling chastising him about friendships and his pathetic display of no greed with regards to them... it's awesome.

Good episode, Al finding out about his father was cool. Nice to see Greed finally pop back up.

Indeed, along with the piece that was played when Al was looking over the town, and then decided to help out.

Yeah that one I was sure was new.

They were both pretty good songs too, hopefully they'll be used again from now on instead of those same old ones that have been there since season one.

I was rather surprised at all the Winry fanservice.

Rather unusual for this show, and then they just seemed to decide to go all out.

It's a good thing that the music doesn't feel old in this ep, but I don't think there's anything new really. The pieces Endless Twilight and Shiroth mentioned, I think I've heard them at least once before.

This was played once in ep 4, when Ed and Roy visited Tucker's house for the 1st time.

The other piece (in Greedling scene at the end) is very similar to the one that was played in ep 22, during Scar's flashback, except this time the vocal part was tuned down a little. Not quite sure about this one though.

I think as long as they don't use the same track over and over so many times it sure feels new, especially when the timing is right.

Are you sure? Has been quite a while since episode four, so i wouldn't be surprised if it was.

Well she needed a bath after everything that's happened, and it was nice of Arakawa Hiromu to show us.

Yes, I'm sure about this one.

I'll need my headphone to be sure about the other piece though.

Are you sure you wouldn't run scared if you were in his shoes?

They robbed it from a couple. That scene was cut though.

Were you expecting some nipples maybe? It's still possible for the DVD/Blu-ray release

Though I think it might be kind of out of place in FMA... what we got in this episode was just the right amount. But I wouldn't turn down more

I know i would. They creep the hell out of me, and more so when they're not moving, because you're expecting them to move at any minute.

They probably looked liked (human) bodies rather than mannequin figures.

They stole it from a couple. It was shown in the manga.

Great epi, Im glad Al learned everything from Hohenheim, I think its cute how Al treats him like a father (since he is) but Ed simply hates him.

Interesting about Father's shell, cant wait to see whats underneath it.

Seeing Greedling was great, I was wondering when he was gonna show up again, the back and forth bwtn him and Greed was awesome. Didnt see the very end coming next week looks awesome!

So....speculation time
Spoiler for Hohenheim:

I agree, it is lame. =[ I don't understand the point of doing it, either.

They took out all 3 of his "funny" lines, though the "don't pull things out of your crotch" wasn't something he actually said, I still wish they kept all that in there, but it's no big deal..

It gives the rest of us more motive to read the manga.

How come people are not talking about what happen at the end of the credits?

The next episode looks like it is going to be badass since it is Wrath vs Greed round 2. lol.

Some of us already have. It's just that most people would rather talk about what happened in the episode, instead of a cliffhanger.

nothing need to be said, it will surely be the best scene of the next eps, the question is will Pride intervene or not since his mom is also around

the only thing i did not expect from this series is fan-service, even tho it is only a 5 sec bath scene^^
