Full Metal Alchemist Brotherhood 25 – The Door of DarknessOctober 4, 2009
The Fall season has arrived everyone! Strap in your seatbelts and let’s start to rock and roll! Fortunately (or unfortunately for others), Fullmetal Alchemist is still running around armed with the manga plot twists. Again, don’t forget to add this one to your watch list.
The episode has a lot of Envy, Edward and Ling. Also, as you all remember, Roy is in a huge crisis too. Some of them will be solved in this episode and expect more cliffhangers: They love it (and so do I)
Okay let’s summarize what happened last time: Gluttony went berserk. Roy meets Bradley. Ling, Edward and Envy got abducted. There. Now let’s start episode 25.
The episode started with Edward calling out Alphonse then Ling. He found Ling and checked themselves if one of them is Envy (Since he has the power of copying identity, or she, whatever). Fortunately, both of them are real.
Edward and Ling discussed some theories about where they are and concluded that they are at Gluttony’s stomach as seen from the items around them.
Next they tried finding a way to go out of the realm.
First they tried throwing a flamed tipped stick (or is it a bone) inside a well Edward created by alchemy. Sadly, no sound had produced. Meaning it’s a bottomless pit.
Second. They run in search of the realm’s walls (Seriously…)
Going back to Scar’s team. Scar is still hiding inside Central together with his trusty loli and grown-up slave. May Chang (the loli) couldn’t find her pet panda Xiao May (because a pile of armor abducted it).
Yoki (the slave) comforts May Chang, which ended up with May talking about her relationship with her adorable panda.
Scar was moved by May Chang’s story so the team started to search for the missing panda.
Back to the EdwardxLing team. Ling couldn’t walk much longer and decided to give up. Edward, however, tried to persuade him to continue but it’s no use. He then decided to go on without him.
But in the end, he decided to carry Ling on his back. Edward told Ling that he couldn’t die yet for the sake of (the story) his empire which made Ling return to his senses (not to mention the blood splash)
The two made a stop over and decided to find something to eat. In this case it’s Edward’s boots (Yes… Leather is edible… Through Alchemy! Oh god, don’t make me research about that).
The duo’s moral increases after eating (From the looks of the other scene, it’s dinner). After some conversation Envy came.
The two were shocked when Envy told them that there’s no way out. Envy also revealed that the realm is a failed replica of ‘the truth’ or more known as the gate where Edward saw in the past.
The two were in a series of shock. In addition to that, Envy revealed that the cause of the war between the Ishbalans and the country was Envy itself.
Due to anger. Edward punches Envy using his metal arm, however Envy didn’t dodge and manages to stay in place without even flinching.
Of course, a chain happens. Since Envy isn’t calm enough to control himself during this situation. He changes himself into his real self: A chimera being… an ugly one (I can’t explain it, just look at the picture and be enlightened).
Back with Alphonse. Alphonse thinks about how he can return his brother back and comes into a conclusion. To go to ‘father’ which Gluttony is talking about.
And this is where the sham starts…
Roy’s Turn. Roy was alone with the Fuhrer. Bradley nicely pawned every move Roy made: Separate his team and made Riza the Fuhrer’s assistant.
The duo’s turn. Envy is on a rampage and smashing Edward and Ling like flies. Upon regrouping, Edward made a sword for Ling and created a blade in his automail.
Alphonse’s turn. Alphonse was surprised to where Gluttony had brought him…
Yes! Done with the blog!! I should have done it a lot earlier yet uh… many things happened.
As you can see… the image doubles the number from my last post. I had a hard time decreasing it but some of them are quite good…
As expected. The episode is spectacularly good. Climax… Cliffhangers… Damnit! I feel like watching Code Geass again. The mood splashes are really… remarkable. One point you are laughing then around three seconds, it’s serious. This is a very good anime so tell everyone to watch it!
Expecting lots of battle goodies next time. And where’s my Ran Fan
