Episode 63: The Other Side of the Gate
The second to the last episode. WAAH. FMA ends tomorrow :(
But as they say, when something ends, something new starts. And so, I will be picking up Kuroshitsuji II, especially that Sebastian and Ciel are CONFIRMED to be back on the series.
This post starts my operation clear-all-backlog-to-start-blogging-more-about-Kuroshitsuji II.
But nonetheless, Ep63 of FMA is really awesome!
Ed continues to throw some punches to Father and it is clear that Father is about to reach his end. He has having a hard time containing God with his depleting supply of Philosopher's Stone, that he again let out another energy blast. Amidst the confusion, Father uses this chance to stab Greed and absorb his stone.
Ling tries to stop Greed's soul from being sucked but he too, is being pulled towards Father. Greed warns him not to do but still Ling wants to save Greed. To save Ling, Greed says his first and last lie, that he will fight alongside with Ling and together, they can become the Emperor of Xing. But this is all just a bluff as he breaks the connection and gets sucked by Father. As his last act, Greed calls for Lan Fan to sever Father's arms with her automail.
Ling gets control of his body and his Ouroboros tattoo disappeared. However, Greed's absorption doesn't mean that Father is saved. Greed struggled and began transmuting his body to the weakest form of charcoal, thanks to his carbonization ability. Because of his rebellion, Father decides to kill Greed for good, but Ed used this chance to punch Father in the chest.
Greed died with satisfaction because he finally had friends, in the person of Ed and Ling. Even though they started rough at first and he didn't gave them the respect and treatment they deserved, Ed and Ling accepted him and considered him as their friend. He died without regret. His finals words are: "Ahh... it's enough. I don't need anything else. Gahaha... see ya. Friends... of my soul."
