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.

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 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.

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

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

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.

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... ^_^
