Episode 26  
{This episode was not the greatest, let me tell you that.
Funny, though. It's basically chapter 17.
Yep, the anime is in the 5th volume.

It starts off with Maria, Roy, and Riza talking about Ed paying his bills for the hospital, etc. This is when Izumi and her husband come in and say:
"Hey!" Her husband
"Oh! Great. Let's go." Izumi.
They leave.
Roy-tachi are all: "o.O;; The fuck?"

New opening. Awesome animation, okay song.
I'll rip it later.

Ed-tachi are in Rush Valley.
A random girl is all: "oh~ Look~ A beautiful ring!! Oh, buy it for me"
"Oh, I will, honey!!"

Cut to Winry drooling over Automail.
Ed and Al: "... o.O; ... -.-;"

Cut to some automail shop.
An older man and a teen girl are speaking with each other when this20-year-old-ish guy comes in.
He's annoying to the other two, so they ignore 'im.

We cut back to Ed-tachi.
There is an automail arm westling contest.
The guy that says "Ready... HAI!!" is an alchemist that breaks the table everytime the guy with huge arms is about to lose.
We see this with the girl that we "met" at the automail shop.

Then they ask Al. Al says "Oh, no!! Ehehehe... ^^;;"
Then he looks at Ed. "Oh, I wonder if there is anyone else here with automail that is a real challenge..."
"WHAT WAS THAT?!" Al holds Ed back.
"Oh? I bet your automail is horrible, anyways..."
Winry: "... >(?! Al... let go of Ed."
He does.

They start and Ed breaks off the guy's automail hand.
They win the money.

Later on... They meet up with the automail guy and his friend that did the alchemy.
"Hey!! You cheated by using Alchemy" Ed yelled.
"Ed, did you use alchemy?" Winry asked.
Ed: "Yeah."
Winry: "Is this true?"
Al: "Yeah."
Winry: "I see... ... Ed?"
Ed: "Yeah?"
She starts beating Ed, Al, and the two contest people with 'er wrench.
"Ed is an idiot!!" She leaves.

Roy is at the crime scene.
Armstrong wishes to speak with Roy.
Riza, Roy, and Louis talk about the testimony of a witness.

Winry meets up with the girl from before, Paninya.
They talk about automail.
The girl says that she was in a car accident and lost her legs and right arm when she was little. Someone took her in and gave 'er automail.
Winry looks at the arm and says it's awesome.

They go to the shop and Winry looks at it some more.
The shop owner comes in and gets kinda jealous.
Winry says "I am automail maker, Winry Rockbell."
The guy is all... "Can it be... Pinko ROCKBELL?!" Cut to Girl laughing with that li'l censor mark on her face.
"You mean Oba-chan? Why?"
"Oh, nothing!!"

Cut to Winry going to see Ed with Paninya.
Winry asks for his Alchemy pocket watch.
Paninya steals the watch and runs away.
Winry says that Ed has to learn how to deal with life without alchemy.

Ed gets his watch back.
Paninya starts to fall of the building they are on. Ed uses Alhcemy to save her. He creates thin rock-hands from the walls to help break her fall.
Oh, new BGM, by the way. *Can't wait for OST2 now.*

Ed-tachi is at automail shop.
Paninya's guardian comes in and says "hello". He's stressed from work.

Cut to Roy-tachi.
Scieszka fins out Hughes died, etc.
2 state alchemists come in to see Roy.

Cut back to Al.
Al runs into Izumi's husband.

Back to Ed and Winry in the store; resting.
Winry asks why there is automail and stuff.
She starts to cry.

Al runs in.
"This is bad, nii-san!!"
Izumi's husband is with him.
He is VERY angry.
Ed: "O.O... *semi-faints*"

New Ending.
The ending song is pretty and the animation is just Winry.
Yep, Winry fanservice ending.

Episode 27:
"Sensei (Teacher)"
Al: "I'm very sorry... Sensei... We are... Mother is..."

That's it. o.o;

*Just* Winry? I mean, I like her and everything, but she's not exactly a main character. x_x
Danikillcity on April 3rd, 2004 09:51 am (UTC)
I have to agree with wednesday_tea. Winry is a great character and all, but shouldn't it focus more on Ed and Al or possibly the military?
She and her Catwednesday_tea on April 3rd, 2004 09:58 am (UTC)
Glad I'm not the only one. A fanservicey Winry ending doesn't really seem to fit what, you know, just happened. But I haven't read the manga besides what's been translated, so I have no idea where the story's going to turn now. Hope it's not sucky.

I'm a little dissapointed, to tell the truth. This episode sounds pretty light-hearted and filler-y, which wasn't what I was hoping for/expecting at *all*. >.>

Agreed. After episode 25 the last thing I need is to watch a show revolving about Winry. Not because, OMG SHE'S SUCH AN UNDESERVING FILLER!!!11twelve, but because I was hoping to see more Ed, Al and their reaction to, you know, what happened.

Brightdreamer (Mel)brightdreamer on April 4th, 2004 07:27 pm (UTC)
Oh, I'm sure we'll get a reaction from them, eventually! I'm figuring that they just don't know about it at this point.

My theory to the Winry-based ending is because the next 13 episodes will be Volume 5 of the manga.
Volume 5 has Winry on the cover.

I don't get it, Sieska finds out NOW that Hughes died? She was at his funeral O_o

I can't guarantee this, as I haven't seen the episode yet, but I'm betting they were flashing back in time slightly when they showed that.

Well, I agree that this wasn't the best episode, but it was fun and cute. I mean, I don't know about others, but I really needed this after episode 25. It left me very depressed, and I don't want any such thing happen in the near future in the series. (One of the things I like about FMA is that the creators know how to balance lightheartedness and angst, so in spite of the rather dark things going on it doesn't turn into some kind of darkity-dark angst-fest.)

Anyway... the new opening (bye-bye RSG, I'll miss you). The animation is GREAT (and it's good to see some of the future baddies), but the song is... eh, okay, I guess, but I find the voice of the singer annoying. >_> (sorry if I offended any fans)

As for the ending, I was pleasantly surprised - I'd been expecting much more fanservice. ^^;; It's a bit boring though, with only Winry and no-one else (but it seems she's going to have a bigger role later in the series), and I'm not too fond of the song either... ah well.

The new OP animation catches my interest a lot. Yay for Ed fighting. For some reason it bothers me that Al would kill anything like that. Even a mean looking snake thing. O-o;;

I am very happy it didn't turn out to be about Winry telling Ed she loves him. @_@ And I already dislike Izumi Somebody who frightened kids when they were 10&11 and still makes them faint 4 years later has to be some kind of sadistic bastard. Of course when its in anime people forgive anything, rape and murder included (Envy, anyone?).

Yea, a little bitter tonight. Still true.
