This episode was pretty good and I was looking forward to the events near the end.
I think they’re going to have to throw some filler episodes in eventually, but that isn’t really a problem considering that the first episode that was anime original was actually pretty good, and fullmetal alchemist tends to lend itself well towards anime original episodes.
I apologise for the delay as well, I should be able to have the summary for the next episode up earlier.
