Sigh, Incredible...

I really liked this series and I still do but god WHY do morons deviate from the manga? A good mangaka would make the story nice and perfect compared to the anime writers version. Trigun, Samurai Deeper Kyo, Love Hina, Kenshin's 3rd season etc. Instead of making their own crap they should have fucking waited a bit before starting the anime so they won't catch up to the manga that fast and I bet it would have been 10x better.

Now I have to go find the manga and read it because I want to know what fucking REALLY happened. Great. Fucking great.

Maybe, but manga and anime have a limited shelf life in Japan. You don't create anime from manga that is over and done with. You create it from hot properties that are running now. There are two ways to go about it though, either stall, add filler and keep the pace slow (Naruto) or follow the manga up till a point and then make your own story (FMA). Those are really the only options.

Since Sonchou was out I got to see the episode. Some thoughts...

Okay, so Izumi created Wrath (since we now have a name for this kid). But what I don't understand is whether Ed created a homonculous or not. Of course the quick answer would be to say that it was Sloth. But we can't say that because Juliet Douglas (as Sloth's alias is) started the war in Ishbal, right? Which took place two years after the real man died, so it had to have been Sloth...so maybe Ed didn't create anyone, but rather helped Wrath out? It's very confusing...at least we know where Wrath comes from.

Very informative episode. It does seem envy is the main bad homo now. I thought greed was a super badass but envy punked his ass. I think envy is the weakest most annoying homo. Seems lust is slowly fading out the main badguy limelight.

I don't like this development, either. In an alternative universe, Greed only respected Lust because of their abilities, and Envy is the one everyone punks around...which is consistent with his name. But now Envy is the boss and ring leader? Why the hell should he be envious, then?!

I don't really care about that whole chronology deal. Envy said Sloth was the youngest of them all (before Wrath showed up), but we don't know what exactly "youngest" means. So for all we know, Juliet Douglas could've been the actual human culprit who started the Ishbal War and afterwards Sloth came by and took her persona.

I really enjoyed this episode, the revelations didn't disapoint. I think Wrath is going to be tough baddie to beat. I suspect when we see why he's called Wrath it'll be spectacular. I'm glad Izumi didn't die, I was really fearing that would happen after the preview last week...

One last thing, what the hell is Archer up to?

well, people tend to be mean when they're jealous of other people.

Also, I think even though it appears that Envy's being the ultimate manipulator, I think "you know who" might actually be the leader of them, but that's just me and my very vague speculation.

This is a super A+ grade episode! *big thumbs up*

I think the scene where envy punked Greed was fricken hillarious. And I do agree that the more answers that are given, the more questions they spawn.

I just want to add that the mangaka plans to have FMA running for 20+ years. There is NO WAY anyone would wait 20 years to start on an anime. And no way most of the readership will stay way into their thirties and fourties.

Look at animes like One Piece,Naruto,etc. The anime creators actually waited a bit before starting the anime and create some filler episodes here and there and a filler arc if need be BUT still stick to the main story that was in the manga.

The ones that try and cash in the money too fast and start the series very early like FMA are forced to go and make their own story, but of course the story is NEVER as good as the original manga one. Pretty soon you will start seeing plot holes and things that generally don't make sense. People have already said the whole thing about Envy being the youngest yet now Wrath seems to be.
