Episode 29  

First impression: HOLY FUCKING SHIT!!
Now, last week I mentioned in some comment somewhere (and possibly on my own LJ) that the boy was a Homunculus. And that's what Ed says. But is he? Yes, he is. He is a homunculus created from the thing that was created when Izumi HTd! (That stands for Human Transmutation, and the d means I made it a verb.)
OK, that's conjecture, especially since I don't know enough Japanese to really comprehend everything. But I believe that ritual-looking place where Izumi went at the end was where she buried the thing, and that line shows that it ain't in there no mo'. That's what I think. If anyone has proof contrary from the anime, let me know.

The part where we see what Ed saw when they tried HT back in the day? DAMN. That scene was friggin awesome. And the kid was in there, one of the things trying to kill Ed! And that, I think, is where the "souls" of the homunculi are being pulled from. I'm making that up, but it's a good concept, innit. Anyway, that kid was in there. It was creepy-scary! Man I love this show.

If anyone who knows Japanese really well would like to detail what Sloth and Lust are talking about on the phone, I would surely appreciate it. (I mean, I understood just as much as hork13bajir5 remarked on in his summary in a previous post, but I sure would like to know the details.)

Anyway, this episode rocked. Plot galore. Damn it was awesome. I LMAO when that one guy came in pretending to be Armstrong - he even had the sparlies!! I like Armstrong. 3rd fave character after Scar and Al. Envy's lookin pretty good in this ep, too.

OK I talk too much. DAMN I love this show.

*whimpers* My raw has finished d/l but I swore not to watch until I'm done reading my notes for my exam. Waaant.

Armstrong rules. He just does. :)

I finally read the first part of the manga (I'm not reading more because I don't like spoilers) and everybody keeps saying "Sorry, but when there's a guy that annoying..." about Armstrong. He totally rules :)

We should be his followers. We can be called the Pink Sparklers. We shall strike fear everywhere we go, even though we are utterly good-doers. ^^

LOL!! Pink sparklers!
In the previews for 30, they showed Armstrong, so he must be in it. Scar's in the preview, too :D

I'm gonna be the very first Pink Sparkler. *sparkles sparkles* With some coaching, I believe Scar could learn to pink-sparkle too. :)

Yay, Armstrongness! ^____^

Envy Envy Envy Envy! And random kid! Such a great episode, I think you're right about the burial site. I mean, it's a big pile of rocks. Nobody haphazardly piles rocks somewhere for no reason unless it's to keep something DOWN.

But yes, I cackled madly with the Armstrong guy and the sparkles on sticks from his pocket? That was brilliant. I'm so glad they included that added touch, it really made the picture that much more enjoyable.

Still fangirling the crazy kid. Fangirling him hard.

The crazy kid freaked me out so bad, I went out to go for soda in the night, and I half expected to see those eyes in the back of my car!! I kept looking over my shoulder!

Umm... from what I understood it wasn't created from when Izumi Human Transformed, but from when Ed did. If fact the thing actually has Ed's missing arm and leg (complete with the wound from when the fox on the island bit him), hence why at the end Ed starts to chase the 'boy'.

I still think it's Izumi's kid. Yeah, it has Ed's arm and leg, but what about the other parts? How does it have other parts? I dunno, I'm just guessing anyway :)

Maybe we'll find out in episode 30 ^_^
