  • Oh boy

    I can't believe Al went to Tucker. That guy was certifiable. And really Tucker put all that together by what happened?
  • secrets just keep reavealing themselves...

    there are so many secrets that has been revealed these past few episodes... its great! its really really great! in this episode al learns what really happens if they use the philosophers stone and ed learns how lust really feels about dante... this episode really probes that you only want what you cant have... i like the way fma somehow relates to real life... not in the violence of course but the lesons you learn
  • (Contains spoilers) Learning to use the stone. Could it mean an end to the journey with joy or death.

    Not the best episode that I have seen. Al should have realized that Ed was holding back with information. With all the research in all.

    What Sowing Life Alchemist did was very distasteful. What the writers should have done is had Al talk him out of doing the transmutation.

    Al should have realized that using the stone would cause him to decay.

    Envy being Ed's brothers was a big surprise. Now I can understand why he went after the Elrics so much. All in all it was a good episode. It just could have been tricked a little.

    Signed the phyro that cares,
  • wow i love this show!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    this is a perfect reason why fullmetal alchemist is one of the best animes ever! I love it it gave lots of information like how envy is hoemhim of light\'s daughter which kind of says that dante and h.o.l may have had a child together. And i don\'t know about all of you but i thought that envy was impersinating the furrer but it turns out that it was another homunculs that dante created. latly the show has been showing that sloth is ther leader of the homuncules and lust isn\'t and it has been showinf a more emotional side to lust and finnally she has joined up with ed . i was happy to see that lust killed wrath but it got me thinking that in that episode that ed had made the pipes come out of the walls and burn lust and glutony and they recovered so fast that wrath should have survived and it looks like in the previews of the new episode he is still alive.and i didn't even mention al and tucker wow i love this show!!!!!!!!!
  • Loved it

    Well,the series is starting to come to an end and the episodes are starting to come together.I say that its pretty obvious who the leader of the Homunculi is now.But for those of you who don't know you will find out soon.In another not,we are one episode away from when everything changes,in a while,several people will die.And let me tell you that once one of those people dies,Another Someone changes.But over all this was a great episode.On a side note I want to say that I hate Shou Tucker.He can Go to hell for all I care.
    Amen to that.
  • Another good fresh full metal alchemist.

    More good stuff in last night's episode. It looks like Lust will now work with Ed and Al. And we are geting close to robo-Archer, and the final fight in the show. So this just keeps geting better and better all the time. I can't wait for next week's episode. When someone will die, and a kid will cry.
  • Excellent as always

    Once again, we are given an excellent episode. Everything is finally starting to come together- the end is near. Threads are starting to be tied- Defeating (or helping?) the homunculus, defeating Dantes, Al and Tucker, Ed and Lust, Armstrong and Mustang going into the front lines of war. Everything is coming together for one final showdown, and I can't wait.

    This is what tv's supposed to be about :D
  • The next episode of Fullmetal Alchemist shows yet a small transition, yet great plot in the main story.

    Human Transmutation has demonstrated what an episode should be like. Like all the previous episodes, this one made one step closer to the end.

    What will happen to Al? Is Ed really in alliance with Lust? What will the Philosopher's Stone be ultimately be used for? Well, we have to wait and see.
