Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood 13 – The Beasts of DublithJuly 10, 2009
Wow, I am late again… Anyway, don’t worry because this is one episode to be looking for. It’s Greed’s first appearance in the series. So for those who are going to watch this series, start right now!
The episode started with both Edward and Alphonse talking to their Master, telling them that they are expelled being her students. The Elric Brothers accepted it wholeheatedly.
The evening of the same day, the Elric brothers went straight to the Dublith Train station together with their master’s husband. He said that they can come anytime they want even though they don’t have a Master-Student relationship anymore. Edward remembered something and went back to their master’s house.
Upon arriving at their master’s house, they are greeted with a flying knife. Without further ado, they told their master why they went there: To find clues to get their bodies back.
They started a discussion about what happened. Their master asked Alphonse if he saw the truth but Alphonse replied that he didn’t remember anything that had happened at that time. Their Master recommended that they should try to get his memories back since the knowledge of the truth is based on how much you paid (for Alphonse, his whole body).
With Alphonse’s determination, their master said that she’ll ask her friend about the matter.
After the discussion, the camera view went outside, showing someone has been eavesdropping at their discussion

Another change of scene and now to Scar. He was lifting weight even though he hasn’t healed completely. A man entered his tent which Scar said that it is his master.
They talked about Scar’s past actions, and it must be stopped immediately. Suddenly, two guys entered the tent, looking for Scar. Scar walks out, breaking a hand, a head and finding cool shades on the way. His master asked if he is still going and it will sadden his brother, Scar replied that there is no coming back for him.
Back to the Elric brothers
A paper was thrown while Alphonse was cleaning the frontyard, telling that he needs to go to the Devil’s Nest. There, he found four odd people, saying that they know the Elric’s secret. One of them asked to come with them but got a kick from Alphonse instead. Alphonse said that he will tie everyone and beat the crap out of them. Sadly, he failed miserably.
Alphonse was brought to their hideout. There, they discussed some things from both parties. Greed said that his henchmen are a genuine chimeras and he is indeed a Homunculus.
Greed also said that he wants eternal life. After Greed spilled all his secrets out, he told Alphonse to tell about the secret about his body. Alphonse said that it is impossible and he’s not the one who did it.
Edward arrived at the hideout, together with that Bido. Greed make a deal with Edward, that he’ll teach Edward how to create a homunculus in return of telling them how to transmutate a soul.
After pissing Edward off, Edward declines the offer and starts attacking. Greed told everyone to get out together with Alphonse as he plays with Edward. Greed transforms his body into a full shield.
After getting hit by Greed numerous times, Edward started to fight back by using alchemy. Lowering Greed’s shield and crushing it with something powerful. The match is even until the Elric brother’s master arrived and kicked the hell out of Greed.
Quite a good episode. Well since I heard good things about Greed from the manga. Aside from that, I believe that it still the same as the old FMA series.
Next episode~ wait till later~
