I was thinking they might have started on plans to develop "The Coal Mining Town" and "Battle on the Train" as a single episode, then shelved them for a while to save time, then came back and finished the episode in order to provide a DVD extra. Does that sound likely at all?

Although I think Ishval is more likely, "Battle on the Train" would make an interesting fit with episodes 31-34 as well. Ed and Al -were- on a train to the North at the end of episode 32. biggrin.gif

I don't think they'd cover Youswell because of the flashback in episode 38. Tales of the Master would be nice, but that's a gaiden, and the wording of the article makes the unaired episode seem more than another OVA, such as a filler more than anything else. dry.gif

You reminded me how I jokingly try to find patterns in what gets cut from Brotherhood. So far I've figured out that Bones hates showing:

1) Anything in Yuuswell. (Yoki's story was only shown grudgingly, very late into the series and with the barest essentials.)
2) Envy and Gluttony doing stuff together. (Lust+Gluttony must be their One True Pairing!)

To me, there's no point in showing either Youswell or 'Battle on the Train' as they were covered already in the first series - so why show it again? I mean, stuff they already aired previously had been trimmed for Brotherhood (case in point, ep. 25 of the first series was already ep. 10 in Brotherhood).

I'd love for the unaired content to be Ishval, but it just may be another gaiden.

In any case...

The thing is, I can't think of anything else that could have been adapted that wouldn't be either a gaiden or just a few scenes that were skipped in an otherwise finished episode. It's supposed to be a whole new episode, not an extension of an existing one, right?

And as you just pointed out, Brotherhood's early episodes were trimmed down from the way they were adapted in the first series, so I can easily imagine that Youswell & Bald were going to be two halves of the same episode; then somebody in charge didn't like the structure or pacing of it, so they quickly turned the story of Yoki into a brief mention in the next episode.

As far as a gaiden goes, it could they could simply build upon stuff they've already cut to flesh out scenes - Ishval being a major one, but they could also do the Elric Family omake. The part with Bald was to introduce Haruko (who's only seen again from the North v. East training exercises) and Roy. Since Roy was already shown in ep. 1, why go through the trouble of re-introducing a character that's already been introduced? For Yoki, I did kinda miss his introduction - but they were able to illustrate him rather well with the recap (as well as include the bit with the Armstrong sisters), but Youswell itself was a rather slow piece in the manga whereas Lior actually had a major point to it.

Woot, unaired episode? ohmy.gif Sweet! biggrin.gif

I have a question: Does anyone know if the cleaned up, edited DVDs/Blurays have had, or might have, soundtrack rearrangements?

The score so far has been very repetetive at times, and several songs have been overused so much that your ears gets a little suicidal when you hear them.

I was just thinking, as the OST of the series is growing, and new songs are introduced, is it possible that they'll go back and add or switch old tracks for newer ones? Rearrange the placement of music, to make the soundtrack less tedious? Does this happen at all, or is it completely unlikely and someting that'll never happen?

Soundtrack's the same on the DVD/BD release as it is when the ep. airs. No re-arrangements whatsoever. All they mostly do is go back an correct anything that seemed out of place from the original airing.

Aright, too bad -.- Thanks for your answer, Kale.

Anyway, on the content of this un-aired episode, whether it is something to flesh out the early part of the story, more in-depth Ishval content, gaidens, or something completely original, I think I shall be happy. The more the merrier, a saying that couldn't be truer than with Brotherhood tongue.gif

I hope Funimation includes these sort of extras, as well as the gaidens and 4komas, into the DVD releases.
Hopefully in the 'complete season' collections too, which are the ones I tend to buy, and in which not much at all was included last time around. Granted that there wasn't that much extra material produced for the last series, I think.

Thanks for posting the cover!

I'm glad to see Riza on there but either her legs are too big or her head is too small. oO

Thank you. She looks chubby to me.

Due to the cancellation of the end of FMA, Kasumisty must think of new signature.

It may take a while.

Huh? Her head's proportional... She's always had a rather noticeable bust when she wears that shirt and since the pants are baggy and high-waisted, it's why the thighs look big. I have a figure of that exact pose (from the first anime) and that's exactly how she looks when I stare directly at that figure.

I like the simple look of the cover really.
