Wow... Greed and Hohenheim's death ( ;_; ) were handled way better than in the manga. I'm really glad they extended those scenes.

It's a bit of a shame they cut out Roy's line, but I think it helped create a bit more suspense. I wonder how many anime only watchers thought Ed was going to sacrifice himself?

If they've been watching this series since the first episode, then hopefully none.

Now that you've said this, no one will ever admit it!

I guess it's true for the people who have watched only Brotherhood, but the ones who've seen the first anime adaptation as well may be influenced by it, deep down.

@Kanon I watched all of the first series and I never thought Ed would do it

Man of all the Homunculi I was hoping Greed would stick around but its fitting how he went out, taking Father down with him.

I knew Ed wouldnt sacrifice himself but it took me a second right after he looked at his hands that he would give up his alchemy instead. Im glad he kinda got to stick it to Truth-kun

Oh Hohenheim, that scene was amazing.

Gah I cant believe next weeks is the last...

Well I did see some first anime fans who thought Ed & Al sacrificing themselves was so much more meaningful. Of course I should realize that I am on a totally different wave length from most first anime fans.

edit: Just read a comment here where someone indeed said that were afraid it would end like the 1st anime with Ed & Al sacrificing themselves.

Well to be honest I was a bit stumped on how Ed was going to get Al back. I thought he might for a moment, before thinking he wouldn't do that. It would just flip his position with Al and then they'd be at exactly the same place. Thought he might give up what he gained from going through the gate, but didn't think he'd give up the gate entirely and lose his ability to use alchemy. Of course in comparison to getting his brother back it's a small price.

You knew Hohenheim wasn't going to survive through the whole series. Still that was a nice way for him to go after the battle was over and in front of his wife's grave. Also liked the montage with the OP at the end.

The anime managed to beat the manga with Greed and Hoho's deaths.... ah, the power of dramatic music Hoho's last moment destroyed me For once the Rain insert sounded good.

This episode was seriously an epic overload. I loved seeing Ed and Al return, animated, and the scene with Father in front of his gate was oddly (unintentionally) comical...

I think they cut it off at a good moment, leaving the entirety of the final episode free for a nice unrushed epilogue... I am so going to cry next week too.

It makes a hell of a lot more sense for father to die from Greed's softening + Ed punching a hole in him which released all his remaining lives, cause in the manga, it made no fucking sense how father could have died that easily, especially since he was blocking most attacks by the army + alchemists. It just didn't make sense that ed punching a hole through him was the last death father had left in him.

Gotta admit, as an anime-only watcher (original and brotherhood), that I was trying to convince myself that he wouldn't do that up until the moment he looks at his hands. At that point I was almost screaming at the screen asking Ed no to do it cause I understood right there what he was about to do (it was pretty obvious if you watched brotherhood carefully actually ).

Spoiler for episode:

They knocked it out of the park with this one. Hoho's death was executed perfectly, and finally BONES actually got Rain to fit perfectly. Third times the charm (?)

Anyway it's great to see that the final episode will be a well paced epilogue.

I think the people who actually like the first series ending are also big fan of Greek tragedy. First series also have the tones of atonement in death. For one thing, both Ed and Al are gone from the world, it made no difference to death. However, on second series, the tones is more like atonement in being alive. Even if one commit unforgivable sins, they would use the rest of their life in repaying the deed. Tales of Abyss also have similar theme, that made it one of my favorite game.

Acutally, one line that was cut out from the manga
Spoiler:

And when you think about it, sacrificing himself is STILL sacrificing a "life" which kinda betrays their promise not to use human lives....

I thought either hoenheim would give his life or that ed would give up his memories to get al's body back. Giving up the memories would have more impact but I guess it would ruin the ending.

No Battle Scherzo for the final battle.

Wish they had used the BRADJA theme from the first FMA (very unlikely) for the last part.

or at least Ray of Light for the ending theme.

lol King Bradley stayed as a Hero.

For me, the entire third act with Hoenheim was the highlight of the episode. I knew he wouldn't survive (though part of me hoped he would, as he's a wonderful character), but they really handled his exit beautifully. And I'm glad they saved an entire episode for the epilogue, as Seirei no Moribito did - when you have a long-running series with a deep emotional investment in the characters, I think it's cheating the audience not to give them that kind of closure.

I'll admit, tears were flowing down from my eyes during the scene where Van Hohenheim died with a smile at Trisha's grave.

10/10 for the super excellent episode and I want to declare this day my own VAN HOHENHEIM DAY, 27.Jun.10 *sings Rain by Sid*.
