    Well, this takes off where the second episode ended. So Ed and Al just got back from Liore, and instead of reporting back to Mustang, they take a side tour to the city of Aquroya. Pardon my spelling, but I think that's pretty close. Anyway, while visiting, they encounter a theif named Psyren. (Again, pardon my spelling) And she's uncatchable!!!!! Ed and Al join the police in hunting for her, but the citizens of the city absolutely love her! The brothers find out later from a tourist that they like her because Aquroya is sinking into the water that it sits on. Psyren is bringing tourists so that their city can have good fortune before it goes under. Al ends up falling in love with this nurse named Clara (or Claire, I can't remember. But I think it's Clara). Ed tells him that she'll only bring him heart ache. So that night, Ed chases down Psyren, and ends up tackling her, (hands on her chest). But she escapes. The next day, Ed goes snooping around the hospital, and sees Clara with her shirt undone. She has a big tattoo on her chest, which she uses for alchemy. A transmutation circle. It's then Ed realizes that Clara is Psyren. She tells him that she's only stealing to raise money to save the hospital, which ends up being demolished anyway. And the same thing happens again, only then she's a nun trying to save a church and a teacher trying to save a school. Ed finally catches her, but she tells him a secret about the Philosopher's Stone before they haul her away. So now, Ed and Al are off again, in search of the stone that will return them to normal.moreless

    Back to present day! Another filler episode, but a good one all the same. It shows that the brothers still have conflicts, but know when to agree on things. Edward's character continues to be expanded as does Alphonse. Plus, Mustang and Hawkeye are promoted!!!



    Ed and Al are on their way back to Mustang, but run into some trouble in the water city Aquroya where they are asked by an Inspector Gadget-lookalike to help capture the the thief Psiren. Ed and Al seem to have the hots for her, but when she also doubles as various helpers around the city, stealing money to keep the city from flooding, Ed has some trouble accepting her as a thief.



    A good episode with some definite funny moments from Edward.moreless

  • It was such a hilarious episode! Lol.

    Ed's a cheater. :P I was starting to get suspicious because he luck is not that good to win all those games in a row. It was so funny when Al busted him. XD And Ed's such a wimp. You'd think a guy that can survive 2 automail operations wouldn't be afraid of a little shot. :P But when I saw Clara's face after she gave him the shot, I immediately knew that she was Psiren. (It was really obvious.) I'm surprised it took Ed that long to figure it out. It was also a shocker that Psiren was a match for Ed in their first fight. (Lol...he grabbed her....yeah...XD) So when he does bust her, she gives some fake sob about wanting to safe the hospital. Again, it takes Ed a long time to figure out that she's lying. (Al doesn't believe that she's a cook until the very end of the episode. XD Sap....) Eventually she gets caught, but not for long. Lol. She's probably the smartest "villian" ever. So overall, this was a really good episode.moreless
  • This is like the best episode EVER

    i love it it is hilarous this episode, it is really a great, original and perfect episode. The pair visit a tourist city with an alchemy using thief that causes a lot of attention. Al falls in love with a woman that ends up being a crook, and con, while ed ends up tracking her down and groping her, it's hilarious. The con aritist takes an interest in Ed and askes him to come again when he growes older, it makes you think if he would, that is if it werent cancelled, it is truely a great episode thanks for readingmoreless
