    Death it comes for us all, it doesn't matter how long we avoid it or delay it, sooner or later it will find us and our time runs out. This is the same even in the world of anime, this episode just shows how truely human Ed is.



    One of the things that make this episode special is the fact that is we do see what's on the other side of the gate which is an alternate world that's slightly similar to our reality. Once again Ed learn a valuable leason about the secret to equivilant exchange which is the principle about life and death, there can be no life without death itself, it's an enevatable force in life that can't be beaten no matter how much we want it to, things will always be gained but something must always become lost. This was the hard lesson that Ed learned thoughout his journey.



    However thats not entirely what this episode was known for, it's known for building up to what we never would of guessed would happen I mean nothing in this world could of prepared me or anyone for it. From a gut wrenching twist when we discover how truely deep the connecting between Dante and Hohenheim, the fact that Envy is the homunkuli version of their decesised son, making him Ed and Al's half brother. But of course as we see the episode gets even more tragic when we see Envy has stabbed Ed though the heart. I'll admit when I saw that my heart just sank, I saw it but I couldn't believe it my favorate character Ed actually dies. It always gets to me whenever a favorate fictionaly character of mine gets killed this is one of those moments, it made me shed a tear or two. Ed was more than just a hero he was a wonderful human being.moreless
  • Well, it's exactly as the title says. (SPOILERS)

    Wow, although I had the ending spoiled for me, Ed's death was still sad and unexpected. I wish you could put two classificasion cause this episode was revaling, just as much as it was a tearjerker. What was on the other side of the gate is oficialy revealed as our world, where alchemy comes from is directly from human lives, and that Envy is infact the homonculis of Hohenheim's son. I just don't know what else to say, it was incredible, best episode of the series, possibly one of the best episodes of any anime show. Though this isn't the last episode of the series, I still feel sad that it's already almost over *sigh*. So to sum it all up, awsome episode.moreless
  • Well, the episode title kind of says it...

    9.9
    This episode reveals everything about the series - literally. All secrets are revealed and most importantly, the main character is killed by the cynic Homonculus, Envy.



    There's really not much to say about this episode... The fact that I nearly cried when Edward Elric died says a lot. This episode, is indeed one of the best anime episodes of all-time.



    Some key moments in the episode are when Edward is transported to the other side of the gate (with Hohneheim); Edward escapes from the other side of the gate; Edward finds out that Envy is his brother; Edward is killed by Envy.



    This episode is truly an amazing one, and a tearjerker, nonetheless... But it's not over yet, the final episode -- well, that is possibly the best episode of a TV series, period.moreless
  • ed contiues to save his brother from dante wen ed is their dante reviels y she has worked so hard for the philosifer stone she sends ed to the other side and sees his dad.ed goes back and has his last showdown with envy in the serismoreless

    9.5
    this episode couldnt hav been better wen enyv killed ed it was perfect dont ending me wrong i like ed but i was glad that their was a heartless villian and cum on wen was the last time u saw a villian stab the good guy in the heart.however there could hav been more fighting and wrath should hav had a bigger part.other than the low fighting and how cofusing it was to follow how dante and hoingheim was about y they made the mhomucluli.however ed getting stabed was truly the coolest part in this episode it was definitly cool best episode in the serismoreless
