Fullmetal Alchemist Chapter 106 (SPOILERS)

My thoughts on Fullmetal Alchemist chapter 106:

"Hmm, now how can I be a bigger douchebag in this chapter?"

Sorry it's taken me so long! In fact, chapter 107 should be out soon! Yeesh.

This chapter got a little trippy, which is nothing new after a few chapters ago when Father "swallowed God" or something of the sort. We get a bit of weirdness with Father creating people out of himself, no doubt from the souls encased in him, or maybe with the "God" he took into himself, as a distraction to the sacrifices fighting him. Also there was the bit where Ed "enters" Pride, which I guess is left to the imagination as to how. It seems a little too esoteric, even for FMA, and it sort of bothered me, to be honest.

Fullmetal Alchemist Chapter 105 (SPOILERS)

My thoughts on Fullmetal Alchemist Chapter 105:

It seems like part of my long-running theory was correct, and part of it was wrong. I did get right that what Hohenheim did all those chapters ago when he spilled part of his Philosopher's Stone out into the ground was part of his plan to defeat Father, and that he would activate his plan when it seemed Father was unbeatable. However, it was not part of the reverse array after all. The question becomes, did Hohenheim always intend to make the reverse array and he just stumbled into the others working on it or did he not know about it yet until Alphonse brought him the news about it in Lior? Either way, enough of my theory was correct to make me satisfied, even though it does seem a little cheesy that he can still use the souls as active participants.

Fullmetal Alchemist Manga vs First TV Series - ROUND EIGHT

Fullmetal Alchemist Manga vs First TV Series - ROUND EIGHT
So, this is it. The final round of manga/first anime series comparisons. After volume 8 of the manga (actually during volume 8), the differences between the two versions of FMA expand into a large gulf. In volume 8, the Xingese characters are introduced. In episodes of the series, there's a return to Lior, where Scar tries for revenge against those who destroyed his people. It's been fun comparing. EVENTS: Chapter 29: Eye of the King/Chapter 30: The Truth Inside The Armor/Chapter 31: The Snake That Eats Its Own Tail Event(s): Greed and his gang attempt to escape the military, but are confronted by Alex Louis Armstrong. Close behind him Fuhrer King Bradley, who shows know mercy. He subdues Greed using his "Ultimate Eye" then kills Martel as she hides in Alphonse, leading him to remember The Truth.
