Wow! such a great episode!

Spoiler:


Seems this series is really heading towards a darker path... but then I love darker animes!

Still no new OP/ED though...

So rose was raped? I know this show is dark but didn't think it would step in a sexually dark way.

Same here, when I watched this episode I was like... what did Scar just say... I only know as much japanese as one can learn from watching anime. So words I hear a lot I understand. During that scene I made out what Ed said... then made out the last part that Scar said... but the part in the middle, I didn't know the words. But from ED's reaction and the atomosphere at the time, I had a pretty dam good idea what was said. I was like NOO FREAKING WAY... I was so vexed that the forums were down at the time so I couldn't confirm what happened.

Below contains a spoiler for another show...

Spoiler:


And rorosama use spoiler tags, if someone haven't watched the episode yet, you just spilled a huge a spoiler.

Do you really need spoiler marks in these threads?

To be honest anyone who hasnt seen the episode and is reading these threads obviously wants to know what happened. I doubt anyone just reads this without watching the episode and without wanting to know what happened.

Don't you think is about time for this episode discussion thread to move into the sticky threads?

Regardless, I think for that person who will look and them maybe doing it out of excitement. With stuff that happens in a show like this even if a person asks I wouldn't spoil it for them.

Highly unlikely. Hohenheim has a beard for a start (and you know that kind of thing never changes in an anime!)

You know i'm so glad this series is not splitting intense episodes up with spoilers any more. I hope at least from now until the Ed/Al's quest/story is fulfilled i hope they don't delay or include fillers because they are annoying.

Esp when everything gets good and you have to wait not 1 but 2 weeks to see the rest. The exitement kinda drops and pisses you off a little.

I would really REALLY like to see Colonel Mustang fight, omg omg, seriously! Such a powerful character and we've never seen him fight a real serious fight with a descent enemy.

Also, i can't wait until this episode! Sounds...exiting, i'm rather spoiled but still wanting it.

Got news for you here, that's the way it has always been through all the show's remakes from HK, Taiwan or Singapore over the last 25 years. This series was originally adapted from a series of chinese kung fu novels and is still quite popular. It's just that what happened as well as the heavy use of poisons [which is a trademark of sorts for the author Louise Cha] can be rather starting for ppl unfamilliar with his work. Fair warning, he doesn't shy with killing off a favourite either.

So Jin Yong's english name is Louise Cha? sounds weird... anyway it's not his trademark, the use of poisons are as much a trademark of chinese martial art novels as the use of chi.

I think "that part" of the Legend of Condor Hero is just one of reasons of why this novel is so great. It ranks my third favorite of his 14 novels (the top two being Tian Long Ba Bu and Lian Cheng Jue)

As usual, Yebyosh's translated preview summaries didn't do it justice...

Spoiler:


And to the person who complained about fillers:

It's almost safe to say, that won't happen. We're in the last arc now, ten-twelve episodes out and there isn't time. And at least we know until 44 it's all plot movement, even if some might not seem like it. But I don't see where the filler could even come in at this point.

So next week...
Spoiler:


Oh, and question for those that understand...
