Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood, Episode 52- Combined Strength

Thank you very much to Max for commissioning this episode! In this installment, we get to see Al continue his fight with Pride, this time adding Kimblee to the mix. Turns out that Al has a Philosopher's Stone (saved by Heinkel) and he's holding his own once again. Meanwhile, the Armstrongs are engaged in a pitched battle against Sloth, and they get interrupted by the damn military who has not gotten the message about who the real enemy is. Thanks for listening, and I will see you soon with a new episode!

One Piece, 194 & 195

Thank you to Florian for commissioning this episode! These episodes are the ones where our friends begin to get it together to leave Skypeia, and they're under the misapprehension that they have to steal gold because these folks wouldn't give it to them. It turns out that they sail away from a way bigger haul of gold than they could have ever imagined, but seems like Robin isn't going to inform them of their blunder. Probably smart. Thanks to you all for listening, and I will see you soon with a new episode!

Of Dawn & Darkness, Chapters 13-14

Thank you to George for commissioning this episode! This is an interesting section, and one of the more compelling moments for me is that instant where Andel gets to see the expression on Jyrene's face change in an intense and dramatic fashion when she attempt to initiate some other prisoners into the Sleepless. He has one very rational and understandable interpretation, but I am not sure I totally agree with it based on the information I'm working with. Thanks so much to you all for listening, and I will see you soon with a new episode!

Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood, Episode 51- The Immortal Legion

Thank you to Max for commissioning this episode! Listen, plenty of things happen this episode that are all very important, but the thing I can't get out of my head is the sound of these poor enslaved souls screaming as they're brought to life. I DO NOT LIKE THIS. Thanks for listening I GUESS, and see you soon with a new episode!

Rule Of Wolves, Chapters 32-36

Thank you very much to Joanna for commissioning this episode! These chapters are the ones where Nina is onboard to see another attack on Ravka from the deck of a Fjerdan ship. Unfortunately for Fjerda, they are met with Zoya wielding quite an incredible amount of power to electrocute all of the soldiers in the water. It's really amazing how complete a failure this particular attack turns out to be. Thanks so much to you all for listening, and I will see you soon with a new episode!

Of Dawn & Darkness, Chapters 11 & 12

Thank you very much to George for commissioning this episode! These chapters are the ones in which Calder manages to ally himself more firmly with Meia, and Jyrene gets some more direct assistance from Kellerac. Turns out that he's the one who gave her back her soulbound vessel, and he also tells her that Shera shouldn't even still be alive. What does that even mean? Thanks for listening, and I will see you soon with a new episode!

Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood, Episode 50- Upheaval In Central

Thank you so much to Max for commissioning this episode! In this one, things finally begin to pop off in the midst of Central right in amongst the civilians, and so far Roy is trying to keep this bloodless which I found REALLY surprising. Especially after abducting the Fuhrer's wife. Thanks for listening, and I will see you soon with a new episode!

Ascend, Chapters 26.6-28

Thank you very much to Heather for commissioning this episode! In these chapters (which I need to sort of finish covering next time because I get carried away talking about so many many things), we have a confrontation between Jenna and Widow, and that shit doesn't go the way I expected at all. Thank you so much for listening, and I will see you soon with a new episode!

Of Dawn & Darkness, Chapters 8-10

Thank you very much to George for commissioning this episode! These chapters are the ones in which we learn what things were like for Urzaia as a kid, and how he wound up in the Champions guild, and then the fighting pits. Turns out, we have another anti-emperor sympathizer. SCORE! Thanks so much to you all for listening, and I will see you soon with a new episode!

Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood, Episode 49- Filial Affection

Thank you very much to Max for commissioning this episode! This episode is the one where Hempstool helps Al to trap Pride in a massive onion of earth, only Al winds up trapped in there with him. As a necessary sacrifice, yes, but I don't like it. Pride, for his part, confides that he actually really rather likes his "mom" beyond just her role as a mask for his false identity. Thank you all so much for listening, and I will see you soon with a new episode!

One Piece, 192 & 193

Thank you very much to Florian for commissioning this episode! These are the episodes where Luffy finally manages to defeat Eneru, and he does it using that giant gold ball attached to his hand to disrupt a major Logia that was about to taken out everything in Skypeia. Turns out, Eneru was actually planning to go rule on...the moon? Hmm. Alright, why not. Thanks for listening, and I will see you soon with a new episode!

Of Dawn & Darkness, Chapters 5-7

Thank you very much to George for commissioning this episode! In these chapters, we get the meeting of Calder and Andel, and it turns out that their relationship makes a lot more sense in retrospect now that I know why Andel was originally brought aboard. We also have the first meeting with Urzaia, but this isn't when he actually joins the team. What a delight he is. Thank you all for listening, and I will see you soon with a new episode!

Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood, Episode 48- The Oath In The Tunnel

Thank you very much to Max for commissioning this episode! In this episode, we get the fight where Pride has to consume Gluttony in order to keep his strength up. I keep having to be reminded that Pride isn't a kid, and that the tactics I'm expecting him to use aren't necessary. Also, Father has been put into the war room to discuss what Mustang is about to do, and turns out they were correct in assuming that Roy would take the Fuhrer's wife hostage. Thanks for listening, and see you soon with a new episode!

One Piece, 190 & 191

Thank you to Gabriela for commissioning this episode! We're nearing the end of the conflict with Eneru at this point, although he isn't actually beaten yet. Our friends are scheming about how to get the golden bell down, while Luffy keeps attempting to reach Eneru, who continually slaps him down. Enerus debuts a new weapon, a massive sphere of lightning that he slowly lowers down onto Angel Island and unleashes, destroying it entirely. Thanks a ton to you all for listening, and I will see you soon with a new episode!

Of Dawn & Darkness, Chapters 1-4

Thank you to George for commissioning this episode! Alright it's time to launch into Calder's story, and find out exactly how he got to where he is. There's a remarkable attack that tears an entire ship in half, and Calder has to do his best to hold it together. Literally. In flashbacks we get to see Jyrene's cult and the strange events that lead to her getting a soulbound vessel. Thanks to you all for listening, and I will see you again soon with a new episode!

Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood, Episode 47- Emissary Of Darkness

Thank you again to Max for commissioning this episode! In this one, Al is getting puppeted by Pride in a sequence that is very upsetting because I HATE my cinnamon roll getting hurt. However, I'm very okay with Hohenheim getting hurt,so when Ed decks him across the face I couldn't help but cheer. I go on a bit of a rant about the man again, so get ready. Thanks for listening, and I will see you soon with a new episode!

One Piece, 187-189

Thank you so much to Florian for commissioning this episode! These are the episodes where we get the story of Kalgara and Noland, and find out that the two had a strange, intense bond despite the misunderstandings and differences in their cultures. Noland was not just devastated to return to the island and hind half of it missing because it was the half with all the gold; he was devastated at the loss of a friend. Thanks for listening, and I will see you soon with a new episode!

Of Darkness & Dawn Chapters 21 & 22

Thank you so much to George for commissioning this episode! It's time for the end of the first of the second books. That sentence was confusing, but if you know you know. It ends with Shera as the new Guild Head, which I absolutely was not ready for and I am lowkey psyched about. I'm so excited to watch how much Yala is gonna fucking hate this. I'm just a little sad that she's still alive after all this, especially after finding out about her involvement with Max. I KNEW IT. Thanks for listening, and I will see you soon with the start of Calder's book!

Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood, Episode 46- Looming Shadows

Thank you to Max for commissioning this episode! I'm so curious what the hell is going on with Al, and I just want him to get through the dang portal and get his body back because I simply HATE this for him. Pride grips him up by the end of the episode, and if ANYTHING HAPPENS TO MY SWEET CINNAMON ROLL I WILL RIOT. Also, Ed is taller. Thanks for listening, and I will see you soon with a new episode!

Rule Of Wolves, Chapters 28-31

Thank you so much to Joanna for commissioning this episode! Y'all how is this book hitting me in the feels so goddamn hard I have never shipped characters as hard in anything as I ship Zoya and Nikolai, and if they don't wind up together I shall die. Also, there's a heist in Ketterdam just like old times, while a coup is happening is in Shu Han. Thanks so much to you all for listening, and I will see you again soon with a new episode!

Of Darkness & Dawn, Chapters 18-20

Thank you very much to George for commissioning this episode! I cannot tell you all how much I loved this. I won't bother explaining here because I do on the show, but damn. What a writer. Thanks for listening, and I will see you soon with a new episode!

Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood, Episode 45- The Promised Day

Thank you to Max for commissioning this episode! In this one, we get to see a fight between General Armstrong and Major Armstrong, and when I tell you I loved every second of this I'm not even exaggerating a little bit. There's no second of this that wasn't just wonderful. Also, Greed seems like he might be either ready to betray his fellow homunculi, or he's got some other con going on. I'm not going to worry about it right now! Thanks for listening, and I will see you soon with a new episode!

The Veiled Throne, Chapters 10 & 11

Thank you very much to Kyle for commissioning this episode! We're still out here on the open sea, and we're getting to see the fallout of the attempt by the Dara soldier to sink the Lyucan ship. Takval winds up actually befriending (this may be too strong a word but I'm going to go with it)a couple enemy soldiers because he's moved by their compassion for their dragon. There's a truly moving scene about that. Also, one of the gods decides that he's going to give up his identity and become a mortal stowaway on the Dara ship, and I'm fascinated by this. Thanks so much to you all for listening, and I will see you soon with a new episode!

Of Darkness And Dawn, Chapters 15-17

Thank you so much to George for commissioning this episode! I can't believe Lucan is dead. I really can't, honestly, and I'm super sad about it. I want there to be something that can bring him back, but at the same time that would cheapen the whole thing and I would hate it. Meanwhile, we're getting closer and closer to the moment when Shera kills the Emperor. Thanks for listening, and I will see you soon with a new episode!

Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood, Episode 44- Revving At Full Throttle

Thank you to Max for commissioning this episode! In this episode, Ed and Al are still separated and Al winds up in Liore where his father is and they have a very not-memorable reunion. The thing that really gets me, though, is Greed running into a friend that he doesn't remember and killing him while the guy just asks why. Ugh. I hated it. Thanks for listening, and I will see you soon with a new episode!

One Piece 184-186

Thank you very much to Florian for commissioning this episode! These episodes are the ones in which our friends Sanji and Usopp finally wake up from their electrocution stupor inflicted by Eneru. Welcome back, guys! Also, I cry like a little baby because this was filmed on a bad, bad day. Thanks for listening, everyone, and thank you for your support.

Of Darkness & Dawn, Chapters 13 & 14

Thank you very much to George for commissioning this episode! In these chapters, Lucan begins a mission to go and check out the Optasia, a seat that the Emperor has used to address Elder problems from afar, and see if there's a way to disable it. He decides pretty quickly it needs to be destroyed. Meanwhile, Shera takes a shower and long soak with Teach, and says that she will do her best not to kill the Emperor without informing Teach first...if she can help it. Thanks for listening, and I will see you soon with a new episode!

Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood, Episode 43- Bite Of The Ant

Thank you ever so much to Max for commissioning all these episodes! In this episode the Fuhrer tells Hawkeye that he actually did choose his wife. I can't really tell if that's an expression of affection, or if there was something strategic in his choice, but I'm suspicious of him sharing this information at all. Meanwhile, I thought that our crew was being betrayed but it turns out it was all a trap for Envy, and I'm delighted. Thanks for listening, and I will see you soon with a new episode!

One Piece, 182 & 183

Thank you for commissioning this, Gabriela! In these episodes, Luffy finds out that he's immune to a lot of what Eneru can do because of his whole rubber-man situation. Notice that I said "immune to a lot", not all, because Eneru is a little more creative with his powers than I was predicting and he finds some loopholes to Luffy's immunity. Thank you so much for listening, and I will see you soon with a new episode!

Of Darkness & Dawn, Chapters 10-12

Thank you to George for commissioning this episode! In these chapters, our original trio of the Emperor's helpers go with Shera is kind of entrapped into a situation in which she loses her cool and completely gives in to the will of her blade. She ends up killing the head of a Guild, which is a pretty serious offense. I can't imagine this is going anywhere good. Thanks so much for listening, and I will see you soon with a new episode!
