I'm so excited to finally see this part of the manga animated! I hope it's another great episode like last week's!

Only watched it raw, but I must say a very awesome episode all around! I loved every bit of it!

Spoiler for this ep:

Too bad there's no FMA next week.

The nod to the first series' piano lifting was very much win indeed.

I have yet to forget the legendary episode 37 of that show.

Actually, the nod was to a manga omake, but yeah.

Won't be watching this episode until the morning, though did the animation deliver like it did in the preview last week?

The animation looked great to me, throughout the whole episode.

The Youswell flashback was hilarious, I can't believe they showed the other 2 Armstrong sisters.

Excellent episode. The animation was top-notch. I wonder why they can't afford this standard for all episodes? All the characters looked so amazing. Can't wait for 2 more weeks to see the next episode(even if i know what's gonna happen). 10/10 (I think it's the second time I'm giving that score.)

Good episode^^ The Yoki flashback made me giggle, and the action with the Chimeras was hilarious. Can't wait for more.... Too bad there's no episode next week...

Well that was one of the best episodes in recent memory. And naturally a lot better than last week's.

Yoki's flashback was pretty hilarious, as was Ed going crazy over his new automail.

And yeah 2 weeks wait now for the next episode is pretty lame. But oh well, maybe these breaks will help them prevent from catching up to the manga before it ends.

Probably it's because it's New Year's.... It's pretty big in Japan.

Wasn't expecting the Yoki flashback, but very cool. And even more squeeing Mei than the manga! Her expressions were very cute, and Ed's were good too (Al just has to make do with happy closed eyes). The chimera fight was drawn out very well, making this a well paced episode.

Truly loved the Yoki flashback. The original black and white silent style was used very nicely. Had me laughing quite a bit, especially with the addition of the Armstrong sisters who haven't appeared at all yet in this adaptation.

Shame we have to wait two weeks to see one of the best scenes from the manga.

Lol at Yoki flashback XD
It is ironic that only oldest and younger sister look good un Armstrong family
I actually could picture Oliviet chasing Yoki there with sword and dressed in night gown

I wonder what is Edward planning by making a deal with Scar...

The addition of the silent movie narrated by Yoki to tell the story of Youswell (and the in-joke for FMA1 viewers and manga readers w/ the Catherine Elle lifting a piano scene) was absolute gold.

Great animation on the Scar vs. Jelso and Zanpano fight. And I loved seeing the antics of Ed and Al from these manga chapters animated ("LOOK! SOMEONE'S OVER THERE! *runs*" "AAAH! IT'S A MONSTER! *flying kicks" "YAY! MY AUTOMAIL IS SO LIGHT! *dances around while dodging attacks*").

10/10

"How foolish of you to sheathe your weapon in front of your enemy"

Mwuahaha, I knew it was coming but it was still good animated.


A clever bit of misdirection with Scar and his hand in the end there. Non-manga readers won't know what hit them next episode.

Duno, the thing with Ed screaming "Why didn't you take better look on Winry, Kimblee?" says a lot and it is obviouse that everything was planned since Winry was with them and there is no way Kimblee could look after her.

That line alone had explained everything.

The only question left is what was the deal about.
