    I thought it was interesting when everyone was in South HQ and Ed makes the comment about "4-way" and the Fuhrer just says "Well, I guess I make it 5".

    I wonder if he's working with someone else since we know his secretary is a homonculi. Hrm..........

    If you noticed, Fuhrer was in Central HQ talking to Roy Mustang. While at the exact same time he's in SOUTH HQ and said that line.

    I can only think of ONE character that can do something like that in Fullmetal Alchemist.

    HAHAHA. No, I actually got her hooked on the show because she thought Nina was so cute. Then she couldn't get over how cute Al's voice was in that huge armor. Once she started watching, it was pretty easy to get her hooked. Now she's just as pumped about the series as I've ever been. And yeah, me and my GF are always talking **** about each other. When you've been together as long as we have, you gotta do something to make it interesting. ;)

    I guess I had unconsciously assumed the scene had ended and that was taking place afterwards. Or that the Homonculi was already represented and so wouldn't be a fifth side:p My bad, heh.

    Of course it did, but you know how it is. Anytime you can become emotionally attatched to characters of any nature, it's hard to stop watching even if something crazy happens.

    Yeah, I like the fact that I can connect with these characters, fictional as they may be. It's hard to do that. This show has me by the balls and I don't know if it will let go!

    The manga and the anime get very divergent later on. Not unlike the Trigun manga and anime. Just like with Trigun, the manga was still a work in progress and the studio had to make a certain number of episodes for the anime. So they had to change the story to make it fit within the 51 episodes of the series and since Hiromu Arakawa is still yet to finish the manga.

    There's actually quite a good deal of FMA manga purists that HATE the anime and the changes that were made. Its not unlike the comic book fanboys that don't like the changes made in movies like Spider-man and X-men.

    Fullmetal Alchemist: The Conqueror Of Shambala. I suppose it could also be The Emperor of Shambala depending on your translation preference.

    Before the anime was dubbed/subtitled officially, everyone had "Touka koukan" fansubbed as "Equivalent trade". When the anime came out in the US it became, "Equivalent exchange."

    Well, equivalent exchange just sounds better. But hey, that's why people get paid the big bucks to do translations.

    I remember when the otaku first heard "Equivalent exchange" in English and they totally freaked out. They already started threads on how Funimation was "butchering" the anime. Pretty sad, and its just symbolic of the arrogantly paranoid and elitist OTAKU fanboy mindset.

    Ah, to hell with 'em. I'm enjoying the **** out of their show. As long as they keep sending them over for us to butcher, I'm satisfied. :D

    Agreed guitarsingerguy. And just a little suggestion. Great avatar and everything :) , but FYI, Ishbala is the name of the God the Ishbalans (Scar-san) worship. Ishbal is the name of their country.
