Shounen Gangan's Episode 45-48 Titles and Synopsis.  
Taken from the animesuki forums, I noticed that it hadn't been posted here yet, so yeaaaah...

Obviously it'll have spoilers, though in the form of very vague super quick summaries about episodes that haven't aired yet...

Episode 45 : That which corrupts the heart
To be broadcast on : 21 August 2004

Hohemheim came to speak with Lyra to convinve her to stop her actions against Ed and gang.

However Lyra refuses to comply and the look of suspicion surfaces on her face while they were talking about the birth of the Philosopher's Stone 400 years ago and about the Gate.

Episode 46 : Human Transmutation
To be broadcast on : 28 August 2004

Al visits Tucker to enquire about the methods to use the Philosopher's Stone.

Tucker who has not given up trying to regrow Nina, demands an equivalent trade for the information. It looks like Al who has become the Philosopher's Stone, might be forced to submit or something......

Episode 47 : Homunculus Sealed
To be broadcast on : 4 September 2004

Ed tries to get to Al in a hurry, trying to cut his way past Wrath in a violent fight.

On the other hand, Alphonse is looking in terror upon the figure of Sloth who appeared before his eyes.

A split second before the shocked-into-inaction Alphonse could be taken away by Sloth, Ed appeared, clutching a bundle taken from Resembool...

Episode 48 : Farewell
To be broadcast on : 11 September 2004

On the snowy mountains lines a formation of soldiers, Armstrong sets them off towards Central, declaring that they are to gain control of Central Headquarters.

Among the tension filled army, Winry appeared in front of Ed and gang.

However, this meeting was just another trap...

Yeah. With episode 48's description, it seems as if some of the army finds out the Fuhrer is a meaniehead and rebels...but the fact that Armstrong is leading them rather than Roy (and the fact that Roy isn't mentioned anywhere) leaves me quite worried =/

And I'm glad that the mention that Tucker is still trying to bring Nina back. That hasn't been touched on since the 5th lab arc, I was worried that they forgot about it.

Oh, and episode 48's title also gives me bad vibes, and for some really odd reason I have a feeling that Winry is going to die.

I didn't have that feeling at all before reading episode 48's title and summary...and a simple title of 'Farewell' and summary which says Winry appears in front Ed and Al but it's a trap (Sounds like Envy) doesn't tell much, but I still have some weird sense that Winry is going to die.

It's mostly cuz she's so...main. FMA, both the manga and anime, thus far has been killing off characters that are important enough for an impact to be felt, but not super important, and moreover most of them are members of the military or battle-hardened and such.

Having an innocent civilian that was childhood friends of the main characters would just be like...super shock angst crazy..

And I'm probably totally wrong, but yeah, I just have a bad feeling.

And the very least I'm sure someone will die during these 4 episodes. My list of people at risk (The ones with plus signs by them are more at risk IMO, the ones without don't really seem hinted that they will die, but I just have a gut feeling that at least one of them will.)


This is going to be so angsty ;_;...

Well, yeah Envy and Wrath and Sloth are going to die... unless the bad guys win or something. I have a feeling that all the homunculus are going to keep over and shrivel up.

I think Roy is safe, though. Being in the preview for the movie doesn't grant immunity (it could be a trick! He could be narrating from the spirit world!), but the fact that he's been pretty big... I mean, he'd be a much bigger death than Hughes and [chapter 38 spoiler]. And I have this weird feeling that Roy won't die unless Hawkeye dies, but Hawkeye might die protecting Roy, which would have Big Emotional Implications for him, the same as if Winry died for Al and Ed or if Al died for Winry and Ed.

I didnt like the way she saluted Al as she left, it seemed very "final" gives me a bad vibe.

>.< the 48 title gives me a death vibe... it doesn't make sense to kill off Roy - he's TOO critical to the story line. They've been playing up his intention to be Fuhrer since ep 13 (and that's been re-itterated ever since), the story's given him a purpose and the writers haven't let us forget it. Hughes was a completely different scenario.

I get the feeling that judging by the preview of the next episode, the Fuhrer may do something with Roy - think him to be a traitor, collaborator, something like that... and lock him up. That's the hope I'm clinging to for the next few weeks ^^;

I don't know about Armstrong - he could be on the death-watch list, but it doesn't make enough sense. There needs to be SOMEONE around to lead the army against Central (especially if Roy's not mentioned), and the army's seige upon Central is going to take more than one episode o.o you'd think anyways.

I don't think Riza will die either - she doesn't know enough, she's not someone as dear to our hearts as others (I love Riza, don't get me wrong, but this series goes for audience shock rather than simply character angst - IE: Roy) and she's only there for Roy... unlike Hughes who was there for everyone.

Winry T.T; this would make people mightly unhappy... which is why she's the best candidate (especially with "However, this meeting was just another trap..."). This would be horrible for Ed and Al, perfect Ed fuel (didn't he say last episode that if you know who kills someone near to you, you're supposed to take revenge - something like that?)... cue mental breakdowns...!

I don't want Winry to die, but the plot/story can still move forward without her >.< which is sad, really.

... so if Winry's not there to fix Ed's auto-mail on a whim, does he get his arm and leg back? o_O

oh yeah *grabs the pitchfork* T_T Tucker... next to Archer, my most disliked character on the list...

....This has 'coup-d'état' written all over it (even if it somewhat isn't the violent, people v gov't coup we always hear about).

I can see why Armstrong's doing this instead of Roy, he's doing what Hughes would've probably done or what the two would've done for Roy. Handle the scary stuff while Roy goes to the top besides, Armstrong is risking his family reputation for a friend. Now that, that my friends is what a great man Armstrong is. He isn't giving a damn about his rank right now. =) (I can see why Arakawa-tachi like Armstrong so much)

(Remember, Armstrong Sr. said that his family supported the country as Generals, meaning every Armstrong rose all the way to General. Armstrong, our lovely muscle-bound Major, hasn't changed ranks since he became a National Alchemist and in the manga, the Fuhrer made a comment to Armstrong regarding why he hasn't been promoted and it wasn't exactly a nice comment.)

If Armstrong dies...man, I will be in shock for a while and it'll take me a long time to get over his death. =(

I would be in tears if Winry died (as if I haven't been with all the deaths thus far -_-'). I'm thinking that Envy is Winry but how he knows how she looks like escapes me because Envy would've had to have seen something like a picture of Winry (or Winry herself) to be able to morph into her.

Episode 48 is sending really, really bad vibes...I'll go stock up on some kleenex. *goes to drug store and buys out the store out of kleenex*

(Must be wierd for thinking that Episode 48's air date ironically falls on the 3rd-year anniversary of the terrorist attacks in the US aka 9/11) Anyone find that odd? o_o;
black_hayate on August 12th, 2004 04:43 am (UTC)
Well, if Armstrong says they're going to take over Central Headquarters, Roy must be involved.. he's the one aiming for that, afterall. (Yay! Roy for Fuhrer! X3)

Sounds like more stupidly done cheap angst. Yay.

If you don't like the series, why are you watching it?

I'm not. :)

Ah, trolling gives you satisfaction. M'kay then. I understand. With you living in your parents' basement and your uncle using your ass as a cum receptor, you need to have fun once in a while.

It's amazing how a character who was supposed to be DEAD all the way back in episode 8 can still hold such an important role in episode 46. O_O But yes, Tucker should die.

Judging by these summaries, the next few episodes are going to be an emotional roller coaster. (Quite possibly a huge understatement.)

And...is it wrong of me to be paranoid that the episode titled "Farewell" is airing on September 11th? *cringe*

Nope.....not at all (just posted her reply wondering if she was wierd for thinking that too)

Geez...I just hope its coincidence =_=;....unless we'll get a wierd episode where a crapload of people die including important person(s) which would suck BIG time.

Want to help me stock up on the *official* FMA-fans kleenex supply? Episode 42 and 44 somewhat exausted a bit of the supplies. Still haven't been able to restock the amount used up in episode 25 though. <~~no such thing but...meh x_x;

Likely eventual death list:

Winry (and possibly very soon)
(I hate to say it, but) Ed.

I haven't been wrong about a death so far, but I pray that I am this time around. I've been really scared for Winry for a long time, and especially ever since she discovered the truth about Sloth.

If every anyone needed to die, it would be Tucker. I've been inwardly fuming every time he keeps being dragged back into the storyline. Him and Envy. Envy is so irritatingly smug. Gluttony I can tolerate, but not Envy.
Spike!!suedeheadspike on August 12th, 2004 02:50 pm (UTC)
I don't think an Ed death is likely in the TV series, much at all. Mainly due to his involvement in the movie. What I'm worried about is the lack of Movie!Alphonse info >_<

Among the tension filled army, Winry appeared in front of Ed and gang.

However, this meeting was just another trap...

Winry: .....*EVIL grin* *skin sparks*
Ed: *gasp* Envy!
Shit: *hits the fan*

We didn't see Envy in ep 44. Where is he? Hmm.

Winry: .....*EVIL grin* *skin sparks*
Ed: *gasp* Envy!

**cracks up** That's great... ^^

That's actually what that cheerfully ominous summary made me first think of. But I think we all can be pretty sure that someone is going to die in an episode titled 'Farewell'; I mean, it's not exactly that good of a title to use if you're trying to conceal the fact that someone's going to go bye bye...

TIPtip_not_tippy on August 13th, 2004 01:45 am (UTC)
Envy's been offscreen since ep. 35 or something... Where is he?

And I don't want ANY of the important protagonists to die! But considering what Arakawa-sensei did in manga chapter 35, I think the anime people are going to try and at least match that, so...*crosses fingers* And please, please PLEASE, don't let the 9/11 air date be a bad omen...TT_TT

Tucker should die though, yes.

Ack, now my head hurts. Damn angsty series.
