As always, these FMAB vids are edited more than the version posted at THE GOOSH (Our Patreon). We are done with the series there. Read the details of posting these here at YouTube at the bottom of this description area.
Reaction video time and okay, "Father" isn't Hohenheim?! I'm SO confused! All I know for sure is, with his badass abilities, this human hating, Homunculus creator is gonna be a problem!

DETAILS ON ANIME REACTION SERIES UPLOADS HERE:
For those who don’t know, certain YouTube channels seem to be heavily targeted for strikes/blocks by Japanese anime companies, despite content being within Fair Use. Unfortunately, we are clearly one of those channels.
As far as FMAB goes, I uploaded episode 1. It was auto-blocked. It went up, but then an hour later, it received a copyright strike. I counterclaimed, and a month later, I won and the strike was lifted. So, going forward, I have that as precedent for our FMAB reaction videos.
However, that doesn’t mean we won’t get hit with strikes again, as there’s no loss for the Japanese companies to continue striking/blocking vids, as there is no repercussions against them for not recognizing US Fair Use.
So, these vids will be up every 2-3 days UNLESS the channel receives a strike of ANY KIND! If we get a strike, FMAB uploads will be suspended until I get it cleared.
I’m not looking for suggestions. I’m not doing redirects, I’m not setting up a second channel, etc. This is how it’s gonna play out.

This episode reveals how well the writers used the misconception of Father = Hohenheim. Up until the part where he shuts off the Alchemy, every time Father is referenced and it's not showing the character who's talking, it showed Van Hohenheim instead of the actual Father. A bit of misdirection, but expertly played.
While I can see that stance, I think that Scar saw State Alchemists as dogs of wicked men(which is the case)
To him, it doesn't matter if you had nothing to do with the Ishvalan war. You've sided with people who did terrible things to his people, and at the the request of Bradley, or whoever is in charge at the time, you'll go and repeat that war, because you're their pawns.
They may be innocent, but they work for the people who have his peoples blood on their hands, and its their jobs to do whatever the people in charge say, even if it's to genocide another race of people.
Also, his attack on Winry's parents are that of a man, in the middle of a war whose last sight was Amestrian's tearing up his people. To see their haunting faces, while coming to terms with his brothers death, all while recovering from being near death, he clearly attacked them with blind rage and panic.
To him, in the heat of the moment, all he saw was Amestrian soldiers.
And this is shown when he tells Winry he wouldn't blame her if she tries to kill him, he's become aware of the atrocity he committed there. And has regrets about it. I doubt he would act like that if he felt their deaths were justified.
+Atsuko Kagari to some extent yes, but because of the fact that some of the state alchemists he killed were innocent to an degree, along with Winry's parents, originally he was chaotic evil, even though it was masqueraded behind a revenge attempt. He didn't care that he was causing havoc, even though he wouldn't kill innocent people, going after Ed and Al can definitely be defined as chaotic evil, because Ed and Al had no role in the Ishvalan war. Scar's intention was to kill every state alchemist in Amestris, regardless of whether they were good or bad. That point is evident when he tried to kill Edward.
And now the proper kickoff for Season 3, and damn does it go to 11 again
Starting off with dropping the red herring, revealing that Father looks exactly like Hohenheim, but isn't him. Answers followed by more questions, the true FMAB way
On top of that though, Ling and Ed return only to be back into the fire, as Ling is taken as Greed's body, lose an ally gain an enemy, but! May and Scar also arrive, and though Ed is still very hateful towards Scar, the enemy of my enemy has to be an ally of sorts. And MAN does Scar go ham on the Homunculi, Gluttony is completely ruined in this episode - which leads Father to reabsorb him in the post-credits scene, making note that Father has the ability to restore or withhold memories - a foreshadowing to Greed's memories clawing back in Ep. 44. Often from this people ask if Lust could be brought back, but it's worth reminding that Greed and Gluttony's stones were returned to Father's body, Lust's stone was destroyed, meaning that Father has no Lust left within him.
Sidebar though, how horrific must it have been to see Giant Monster Envy be forced out of Gluttony's belly, even the shadow was very horror-esque
Also, the new Greed is voiced by Troy Baker, voice of Joel from the Last of Us, Batman in Telltale's Batman, Joker in Arkham Origins, Booker DeWitt in Bioshock Infinite, Ohm and Helmeppo in One Piece and the voices you should be most familiar with, Pain and Yamato/Captain Draconian in Naruto. This is also Baker's second major FMA role, since he voiced Archer in the 2003 series. Chris Patton, Greed's original dub actor for 03 and Brotherhood as well as the voice of Turles in DBZ's Tree of Might, could not continue the role due to scheduling issues, in the original Japanese the voice actor remains the same (which is where the dub issue of Bido recognizing Bido's voice comes from).
The importance comes in the channel of power that differs between Alchemy and Alkahestry, while Alchemy relied on underground vibrations (believed to be tectonic energy but just the energy of Father's philosopher's stone that was spread throughout the country until the reverse circle nullified it) Alkahestry relied on flow of energy, like sensing Ki in DBZ or the Force in Star Wars, or just like how acupuncture works, of course Hohenheim discovering this while in Xing and it being incorporated to create Alkahestry, which Scar's brother used as the power source for the arm tattoos
Yeah, I'm surprised how good the English dub is, that being said, it seems like FMA has a good dub in every language, it's also really good in the German dub.
It also shows how great these characters are written, because no matter in which language I watch it in, it always feels like the same characters, not a lot of shows can do that.
The one things I never got was why did he not remake Lust at any point? After all he could use new pawns in the rotation. The only thing that comes to my mind is that it takes time to make a humunclus from scratch (as in without putting them in a already existing body) but he revives Glutony despite him not being a normal humunclus (since he is a failed gate) so what gives?
Well, its because Father doesnt have any lust left to make another Lust. When he "ate" Gluttony and Greed, he got those sins back and was able to make another one,but Lust died, and thus he doesn't have any lust left.
