Well this week’s FMA was certainly less exciting then I thought it was going to be. I was expecting more of a fight and less chatting and feeling sorry for yourself. At least next week we get to see Winry all grown-up. Mmmmmm, blondes.
That is one fucked up dream.
Ah, religious fanatics. Fucking nuts, all of em. Whether it is intentional or not (leaning toward yes considering the desert settings and other themes), the series does provide a running commentary on religious fanatics. It’s something that everyone who lives in today’s world should be knowledgeable about. Whether it’s far out Christians or far out Muslims, there’s a lot of issues out there to solve.
Well…he kind of got his dome punctured and was eaten by Gluttony if I recall correctly. And by the way, Envy’s androgyny always crept me out. He’s definitely not a delicious trap like Mariya, which is rather unfortunate because this show would be more enjoyable with Mariya in it.
Even MORE crazy religious nuts!
Oh, harsh words baby. He’s just a little gun shy when it’s wet out there. He really wants to do it, I swear!
Maybe that’s because you shouted out a warning right before you punched him.
While Scar’s fight with Ed and Al was rather one-sided, I was rather entertained (for the short while it lasted) by Armstrong’s battle with him. Made up somewhat for the majority of the episode where everyone was talking with their hands in front of their mouth or by a panning away to save on animation budget.
To me it always looked more like someone stuck an X-shaped branding iron into his face than having a scar.

So it was time for ultimate X-Men fan Scar to really show his worthy and while I agree that it could have used more action I enjoyed most of it mostly due to Armstrong’s martial prowess. Watching that fight reminded me a little bit of Punch Out, but that is another issue entirely. I suppose having Ishbal now might make it a little more poignant though as always killing them and sending the souls of fanatics to meet a real God like Zeus/Mazinger Z is all you can really do for them. Really you’d follow a God named Leto who isn’t a Sandworm and who doesn’t make the spice flow? Some people are just plain stupid. While there was a lot of talk it was still amusing to hear Lust talk with Kikoku Inoue’s evil voice, I am still not used to hearing Envy as I am expecting to hear Patrick asking for a new mobile suit or something. Still the second best thing this time was Hawkeye saving Mustang’s bacon from Scar, impotent Roy is impotent. I think they could have used a bit more Hughes but another time perhaps. I am glad that they didn’t get too weepy as Scar crashed the second one and Alphonse would have none of it when Ed was batting for three.
