Yes, I remember the chess scene in the first series. Cap from the chess scene from the first series (ep 27) below:
BUT... we don't want to overwhelm this thread with our talk of the anticipation for watching that chess match scene, right??
So, let's talk more about our anticipation for that chess scene, among Royai fans, on Royai thread, shall we??
(I know, I know, these are perfectly on-topic and we should be able to discuss it here... and it is, except, currently we have a large number of Roy & Riza fans, and I hope to avoid Roy x Riza fans monopolizing any thread with conversations on RoyxRiza related discussions so that other members do not feel pushed aside and uncomfortable. ^^)
@penguintruth - Please excuse us, the fans of Roy and Riza, for being excited to see that chess match scene. XD You know, EdxWin fans get excited about certain scenes, and MariaRossxDenny fans get excited about some other scenes, and this one is something some Royai fans are looking forward to, I think. At any rate, we'll try NOT to monopolize this thread with the talk of that scene. Sorry about that. ^^

Lol, I didn't know it was a whole RoyxRiza thing.
When I think RoyxRiza, I think about the Chibi Party OVA where Riza thanks the producers of the movie for not pairing her and Roy up, because now she can find happiness on her own, which sends Roy into shock.
Of course, I know, different continuity, even with the omake.
In the first series, Grumman is in two scenes, that one, and the one at the end where it shows that the parlimentary officials took control of the government, I guess with Grumman's help. This time, we'll get crossdressing Grumman!

I'm looking forward to the Maria Ross arc. It shouldn't be that far off now.
We still have a bit to go before the Maria Ross arc, but I can't wait for it. Mostly because of how awesome Roy Mustang starts to get, between the Maria Ross maneuver and his badass killing of Lust later, which is about as hardcore as you can get lol.

Well we can only hope we will get all these scenes. Not that I want to be a pessimist but the Brotherhood team has cut things so far.
Although I am not sure how they can cut female Grumman.
Well, in defense of the Brotherhood team, they've seemed to have cut out parts from the episodes that were already thoroughly displayed in the first series or was simply minor filler in the manga.
Since cross-dressing Grumman was never featured in the first series, as well as the fact that it sets up the later events in the manga, they'd probably keep it in. Plus, it's an eccentric old General dressed up as a woman - much to the shock, awe, and disgust of Roy - there's no way that Bones would pass up a chance to animate those scenes.
