i don't deserve the first post, but here i go.

Epic.
I felt that the deaths happened to fast and that appearance was REALLY random. Animation was solid all the way around from my broken perspective. In fact, everything happened too fast. but from what i hear they need to do all that to keep up. I'm not a manga reader but i just don't see where theres 3 more episodes of content.

I kept my post very vague because I know I get curious too and read what i shouldn't before i watch.

Another mindblowing episode. Another awesome use of the BG music (too bad they shortened the Battle Scherzo theme).

Also. THAT FREAKIN BIG DAMN VILLAIN ( not talking about Bradley)

Is there's something Ed can't do?

So... Epic... how...

You got your arms blown off, so you wield your sword with your teeth!!!

...

What just happened...

Something epic happened...

Oh yeah... he stabbed a guy with his teeth!

Pretty awesome last words too.

"I chose that woman, there is no need for last words between her and me. That is what it means to the wife of a king."

What the...

How can a villain be so... inspiring...

It's not right!

I can't believe that Scar managed to defeat Wrath once and for all.

And that Pride, so this is your true form huh, pride?

I wonder how will MS Bradley feel to see this when it's over...

Also the end of the Fight betwen Ed and Pride. It was as epic as the original FALCON PUNCH segment

I kinda didn't understand the exchange of words between Wrath and Saber (Lan Fan)

If only these last few eps had some action...

I'm very glad it was Hoenheim that was responsible for bringing Father down to a realistically beatable level, and not his sons. His centuries-in-the-making counter-plot was the only realistic way to make that happen. And damn, is Scar isn't GAR incarnate - what an arc his character has had. He's really shone as we near the finish line.

So yeah, It's over for Bradley's Family (See you in hell, both of you.) even Homunculus themselves. Except Greed. 6 down, one to go.

Maybe ED will show some appreciation to his dad next sunday.. it is Father's Day after all and his dad is pretty kick ass. Since Ed STILL blame him for leaving them behind years ago but he did it for a perfectly good reason, so his family can survive.

Can someone count how many new BGM were used in this episode? I'm becoming addict to them. lol

After an entire day of FUCK YEAH'ing so hard, I've just noticed. Why HE of every person, saved Ed's ass? revenge on Pride? don't think so.

This episode did great justice in adapting to one of my favorite characters (Bradley and Kimblee) last moments. Great music placement for both of them.

Shame the start of the episode was a little messy, though that's because they didn't show Father's boss form at the end of last weeks episode. Here we see it right at the start, and seconds after the counterattack begins not leaving enough time to be effected by it. Ah well.

I'm glad that I never read the manga because I'm thoroughly enjoying the run of these final episodes, it's just leaving me speechless. Hohenheim's plan dealt Father due justice and Wrath's final breath was just amazing. I really wish I had more to say but this episode left me craving for more.

3 episodes left and I'm hoping to see everything wrapped up nicely, this is definitely worth becoming a classic series in my book.

One problem, for those manga readers out there who watched this episode, had you noticed that the fight scenes way too short during their fights against the blob in the flask?

Godly episode. The animation of the souls exiting Father's body made me skip a heartbeat there and the background music for the epic scenes were just played perfectly at the right time.

10/10 for beyond epic episode.

Not really. It's just your typical manga to anime adaptation. Length of a fight scene are just portrayed differently in each media.

Awesome, this was a great episode! Wrath grabbing the blade with his mouth, totally bad ass.

I am a little confused about what Scar did though. Did he unseal alchemy or remove a limiter that Father had placed or something?

God, I thought Greed wants revenge, but I was wrong (I was anxiously expecting that to me but damn...).

Scar finally put him to and end. It's over to me. It's over for Bradley's Family. Talk is cheap huh, Selim?

Only 3 episodes to go. THE END IS NEAR!

BTW hold on a sec, did you guys noticed that the Opening sequence had finally removed this week episode but instead they make it look like a Finale Opening?

I think he was basically telling her that the she's destined to become companion of a king (Ling) and that he'll probably think about her the same way Bradley thought of his wife. Which could be either good or bad considering he never flat-out says if he loved his wife or not.

On a side note, remember when Bradley was all climbing-through-windows and giving people melons as gifts? What a change in character. If homunculi go to heaven, I hope he gives Fuu a cantaloupe as an apology for killing him.
