Fullmetal Alchemist Brotherhood - Season 1 - Episode 61 - Review: "He Who Would Swallow God "

Amestris has come to an end and it's positively haunting as everyone seems to be dead, laying where they were, as an eerie silence covers the country. The stillness is unnerving to say the least, but even more so when you realize that the sacrifices appear to be all that's left. With supposedly some fifty million people having been ended because of the homunculus' plans, it's more than those who have survived can bear. But the entire problem still resides in that Father has now seemingly obtained immense amounts of power from his plan and is ready to use it in order to establish his full rule.

Considering the time scale involved with what the flask homunculi has been working with, it's little surprise that Hohenheim does have something up his sleeve in order to try and restore the balance of life to Amestris and to the world itself. It's an intriguing plan that takes quick effect as there really is no time to lose, and it's the kind of thing that definitely feels epic and powerful. Yet in the short term, it's a plan that minimizes the main cast of characters for the duration and leaves us just watching massive amounts of energy floating around. Though he's the namesake of the series, Ed takes a bit of a back seat as the show turns the main characters into Hohenheim and the homunculi as their story is one that is ages old.
