[Anime] Episode 49: The other side of the door

Very interesting episode, and once again proves that the conversations in FMA are really well written.

Spoiler:


I'll also be leaving this board for 2 weeks now, only to return after I have seen the final episode. I encourage free speech and don't believe in telling others what to do or say, so I don't think it would be fair to ask everyone to stop speculating or talking about FMA, but I really don't want any other views to influence what I feel or expect out of the final two episodes so I'll just go into hiding until it's all over.

The conversations here have mostly been informative and interesting and all of us have played a part in contributing I believe. It's been a great ride from Bones so far imo, and I'm definitely in the anime > manga camp, but hey to those that thing otherwise, you're not wrong either. ^_^

So here's really hoping they won't cop out on the end and give us a smashing and definite finale only to follow it up with a solid movie that doesnt undermine the existance of the series!

As Frankenarcher would say..... "I'll be back!"

*big sigh*

They had better make the finale pretty damn amazing to make up for this bullshit. This was the LAST thing I wanted to see FMA turn into. I'm not going to say the ending sucks in general until I see then ending, but this does NOT look good.

I'm agree with you, totally! From the start to the end of this post.
In my case I'll stop my speculations. ^^

My love for this serie will never end!

I'd like to see a summary as well if possible... sounds like an interesting episode.
Thing you mentioned seems a bit odd, but they've pulled off odd stuff really well before, so I'm gonna wait to see it to judge it...

Y'know what? Screw it. I watched the raw, and it was actually kinda cool. I'd like to see where things are going.

Also, I guess this means it'd be easy enough to make a sequel and everything following a different concept. Thinking into it, this might not be as bad as it sounded at first.

I just hope the ending is not a cop out like Big O.... in Big O... the main character's world was all fake and basically all 25 episodes leading up to the last one were rendered pointless.

Also if the other side of the door is our version of reality, then why the hell were all those freaky purple eyes and black shadow demons inside the door?

I agree, that would be extremely disappointing...

Maybe it's something like the MWI theory...where each decision leads to mulitple realities...completely different worlds, that would be better than having a place we've watched for 40 episodes turn out to be fake -_-. Bleh, I don't know, might help if we knew what Dante and Ed said before he was brought before the gate.

Anyway, the preview for 50 looks great, can't wait.

yea I was thinking about that too. And if Wrath is from the other side of the gate, and if the gate is what makes Alchemy possible...

Selim isn't that young, he's like 10 years old. So he'd be concived when Bradley's in his 40's. So it isn't *too* late.
