Episode 23: Heart of Steel [Spoilers]

I think it's about time for us to begin discussing our hopes and anticipations for this episode. As for me, it is apparent that what Barry told Al certainly affected his outlook on life. Also, Tucker's explanation of how he would 'implant' his memories of Nina into the chimera must have had an influence on him also. I only hope that he and Ed will be able to get along somehow -- the two brothers' relationship, along with their relationship with Winry, is one of my favorite parts of the series.

Hopefully, we'll see more of Greed and the Crimson Alchemist. I kind of hope that those two people with Greed weren't Sloth and Pride (or Sloth and Wrath, or Pride and Wrath), because I definitely expected the three to look much cooler than they do. Especially if one of them is Sloth, I was hoping that Sin would look really menacing and awesome.

Whatever happens, I'm looking forward to it.

Nah, neither of them are Sloth, Pride, or Wrath. ^^;;

Baah, just in case..

Spoiler:


But I'm also looking forward to Episode 23.. well, I've been looking forward to every episode after Ep01.

And I think that the people who have read the manga should stop spoiling the ep before it airs and stop doing manga spoilers without being tagged as such...

Manga (mini?) spoiler about the rational behind 21/22:

Oh yeah.

This doesn't really warrant a separate topic, so I'll just add this here. For any of those wondering, the name of the country this whole story takes place is Amestris, which would also be the name of the wife of Xerxes.

I guess they did things a little differently in the episode than in the manga. ^^;

Can't wait.

Speaking of the latest Toriyama's World chapter release (volume 4, chp. 13), I found it funny how

I'm sorry this is kind of off-topic, but can someone tell me who Sloth, Wrath, Pride and the Sins are supposed to be? I have no memory of hearing those names.

*apologizes for stupidity*.

Eh, no problem.

In Christianity, there are 'Seven Deadly Sins' -- that is, basic sins that are not so good to commit. They are: Lust, Greed, Sloth, Gluttony, Pride, Anger, and Envy. Hence, it seems obvious that since Lust, Gluttony, Envy, and Greed have already showed up, we presume the others will also.

Anger is called Wrath in the manga, as the manga readers say. They also say he/she has already shown up in the anime, but it hasn't been revealed which of the characters Wrath is. I wrote a post of speculation about Wrath's identity somewhere around here...

Hope that helps.

just saw the raw for Ep. 23. MORE WINRY! WOOHOO! <<does that count as a spoiler? if so my bad, but its Winry! who doesn't want more Winry in an episode of FMA right? ^_^

anyways, since there aren't much in the way of words that I can understand in Japanese, I can't, neither would I, spoil anything. It's a really good episode though, one of the more non-action, yet quite serious episodes in the series. These kinds of episodes give lots of good clarity anyways and thats partly why I like them, plus i rarely read the manga!
