  • In this episode of FMA the Philosopher's Stone is finally created, but with a price.

    This was the episode I was waiting to see for a long time. In the episode the Stone is finally created. Scar uses Al's body to make it along with the lives of the invading soldiers helmed by Archer. This is a classic episode. It was sad to see Scar die but it had to happen. Now with the Stone being Al, Ed needs to decide what to do now. A super episode and a true classic.moreless
  • Very good episode showing that this show has more to come and will only keep getting better. Spoilers inside.

    Before this episode I was expecting this show to be ending solely because of where the show was going, all major characters revealed, philosopherstone was about to be made. another ishbal ect. But thankfully tthe show was able to hold strong by allowing new elements to come into focus and allow this show to keep going.
  • Yep, this show is definately awesome. P.S. Spoilers are in this review people, so I'm just warning you before the clicking.

    This episode truly showed it's awesomeness. That dumb bomb guy is finally gone (thank goodness) but another person that's gone is Scar. I still wanna know his name! Oh well, it was a good episode and he helped Al too! Archer is still alive! I know it, just keep watching the show. Another cool point is that Al is the Philosopher's stone. That doesn't mean that their journey is over though, with the military, the homunculus and LYRA!!!!! Yes, that's what I said: LYRA!!! That weird girl with the perfume. Anyway, I can't wait to see the other episodes when they come on TV! This episode has lots of awesomeness.

    P.S. NEW THEME SONG!!!moreless
  • Awesome episode

    Finally, after many episodes, the Elric brothers finally obtain the most sought after stone - The Philosopher's Stone. Now all that's left to see is what they'll do with it.



    An episode that is sure to move you when seeing what it cost to make the stone. Roll on Episode 43!
  • AS USUAL, Fullmetal Alchemist shows yet another great episode, that answers questions from its previous episode, yet create new ones that create intensity and interest to the viewer.

    Fullmetal Alchemist, episode title: His Name is Unknown, shows another great transition in the main story plot, and was intense. We lose yet another main character in the story, Scar, who sacrificed his life to save Alphonse, who was slowly absorbing oxygen to blow up like a bomb. Although Al was saved, many lost their lives. Now the story continues on...Al IS the Philosopher\'s Stone, and what will happen next? Yet, this episode does not have a preview, making it more harder and harder to be patient for next Saturday :).moreless
