52 episodes, hm? Are the majority of these going to be flashbacks? While I'm enjoying this lengthy retrogression to some extent, I find myself a little frustrated with the pacing on the whole; episode 4 in particular seemed slow and unnecessary. Things ought to pick up with the exam - though I suppose we already know whether or not he'll pass

I don't mind the lengty flashback. In a 52 episode series they better be telling us how the heros got there. And I'd rather they do it all right now then throwing bits and pieces of their past at us at times when you'd rather see what's gonna happen in the present.

Because seriously, the series whent back to the past at a time where you don't need to know what happens next in the present...

Anyway, I'm really loving this series up to now, too bad the games will probly be PS2 exclusie as well as being shitty Square soft clone-RPGs

hhmmmm i think i would have to agree. The fire element that he used is more of an evil type of wep. I wonder if he later on becomes an enemy? . Guess i will have to wait to find out

Nope, from what I read, the game is actually pretty innovative... And I wouldn't be surprised if it's more Enix-influenced than Square, since this manga was published in the old Enix's manga magazine. (though Enix wasn't really a game developer)

<OTslightly> I'll insulte his pyro alchemy since for the last 2 years i've been the Eldest pyromancer in a mud a play, and my napalm spell makes his little flame look like nothing.


Odds are the show will do flash backs till episode 10 or so and then work their way on,
i still wanta know when we get to see the other sins, so far it's just Lust and Envy, i saw a 3ed in the op so i guess in the first season we get to see 3 of the 7 and in the second we see the other 4, at least that's my guess.

Manga Chapter 5 & anime episode 6

Toriyamaworld finally released Ch.5 of the manga. Now THAT I can't wait to see animated (and no, I'm not spoiling it either!).
By the look of the preview at the end of episode 5, the next anime episode will be partially adopted from manga chapter 5. Which means, it's a heart wrender.

Im lovin this show so far. Good story, cool characters. Nice music, great animation.

Ep5 was awesome. Lots of action, and also pretty funny.

I can’t wait for more!

A heart wrencher? Man words cannot describe the sorrow that you feel after reading chapter 5. Watching Grave of the Fireflies won't help you out of the depression either.

Personally I'm hoping it's not gonna be a heart wrencher, it just looks like the typical "he'll never pass the exam/preliminaries!" and everyone is so shocked when the action hero passes while saying he has grown, evolved, or a genius.

I've been hunting a -long- time for an anime such as this. Every episode so far has kept me in the hotseat and begging for more.

Since it's released by Square-Enix, is there any word out there about seeing our favorite alchemist on Playstation 2 ?

I think the first two episodes were more of a "flash-forward"; they wanted to hook people in the first manga volume/episode by introducing the characters in an exciting and dramatic fashion.

Considering that he has the most evil eyes ever, constantly says things with evil undertones, wears evil clothing, leads a government organization that numerous characters have called evil, and was practically going like this...


...I would say that the probability is extremely high.

They sure messed up the sequence of the story. I'm all o_O confused between the manga version and anime version. That train scene- didn't that happen when Edward was already a national alchemist? The sequences of his life is told in different order and occurred at wrong times. I kinda prefer Edward act more rudely to Colonel Roy Mustang to show they're on the same level power-wise.

In the manga I liked how Edward has that cool atmosphere about him and how he settles conflicts with his intellect. But in the anime the viewers watch him grow through trial and error. Hmm, I like both sides of the story but I prefer Ed already grown up so the story can get to the point. The storyline is completley mixed up since the creators decided to begin Ed&Al's story from the beginning ~ which means before they became national alchemist age 11 which explains their childish voices.

Ed&Al were already well on their way to find the philosophers' stone in the manga age 15 but the anime rearranged the sequences of his life.

..I wonder who trains Ed and Al in alchemy.
