I'm gonna have to wait for the subs, but right now I can say this - ENOUGH WITH THE VISUAL GAGS, GUYS.

I mean, christ, sure this chapter did have a few funny visual gags in it, but these were exaggerated way too much. Sheshka acted like she dropped out of a silly shoujo anime, while Armstrong's hilarious scenes had their thunder stolen amid all the other gags. It's more than possible to do a gag without going nuts over it - the part where Ed and Al were going "No no no of course we won't go to Lab 5!" was funny without being too over-the-top.

Arakawa eventually dialled back the gags as the manga got darker; I hope the production crew will do the same.

Well most of these gags were taken directly from the manga. Personally I really enjoyed them.

I agree with you, the earlier story in the manga was gag filled, removing that would have made the episode dullsville like ep.6 .
