I'm going to start to sound like a broken record with each episode being this high in quality

So yeah, epi was awesome as always, the Wrath part was just WOW, but the Father vs Hohenheim was a bit underwhelming considering that they cut it just when the good stuff was about to happen.

But that's just a minor nitpick compared with everything else.

Spoiler for Next time:

Yay! The thread is up!

As expected, Wrath was jaw-droppingly epic, I think I was drooling through the entire episode He really stole the show, although Fu's entrance with the Xing theme song was great too.

I never expected Brotherhood to get this epic.

The tank scene was very bad ass.

I hope they give next episode the Mustang treatment (far as animation goes).

I dare someone to say they don't like Bradley after this episode.

Well, I like him as a villain, because other wise he had moments where I would've hated him otherwise.

Great episode as usual. Bradley was badass as expected, the tank scene was just awesome. His sword is also impressive, how freaking sharp and durable is it? I was half expecting him to cut that tank in two with it

haha, yeah, the tank scene was fucking awesome.

In the manga, the tank was stationary, IIRC, so when bradley got up to it, he just had to stay in the blind spots.

In brotherhood, they made it so the tank was going in full reverse, and bradley JUMPS ONTO THE DAMN THING, then proceeds to wreck havoc on it as in the manga. It was awesome XD

I don't, he's such a hacker.

He struggled against Ling before he had Greed, now he can dodge bullets? How can someone dodge bullets but not move fast enough to beat a human?

I CALL SHENANIGANS.

struggling? Just because Ling was able to parry some of his attacks doesn't mean bradley was struggling against him. :P

I thought Brotherhood was even more awesome because the soldiers in a freaking tank were running away from him. You know you're hardcore when you have guys in tanks shitting their pants and trying to get as far away from you as possible.

Anyways, pretty good episode as usual, but the pacing worries me. They're taking it somewhat slow and even adding a fair bit of filler when they still have 10 chapters to cover and the last 4 are so much longer than the usual. I really hope it doesn't happen, but I can see them not having time to cover everything in the last chapters because they instead chose to waste time extending Ross and Fuery's conversation or show the Central soldiers using gatling guns and whatnot.

I'm a little worried, though if we don't have episodes like this anymore then we should be in the safe zone. Let's just see how next weeks episode is handled.

Plus this episode has awesome cliffhanger material, so i'm glad for that.

Anyone notice how the preview for next episode was very very small and didn't show much? I imagine it is so as not to spoil anything - which they will have to do every episode from now on, since there are so many "HOLY SH*T" moments.

Bradley RULZ. From last weeks preview, I actually thought they saved some money for the animation, but I was glad I was wrong. The fighting scenes were awesome. I like Bradleys personality very much, even though he is a supposed villain. He is very coherent in his ways, which is something I admire, even if I do disagree with many other things. He looks very calm even in tough situations, which, IMO, is very intimidating.

This series is so good, I can't believe I almost didn't see it because of the first version (I now know that it was because the story went so crazy and made less and less sense as it was made without the manga material).

I hope they keep it up.
