I agree that this episode was a bit too fast-paced (again) but then again.. the scenes that WERE left, were made of pure win. XD I loved to have some good old manga-humor after depressing ep 10. The animation was fluent, the expressions were great, and.. personally, I love the music used on all the scenes.
One thing DID bug me the whole time: the whole "Winry opening Ed's watch" came out WAY too fast. It just felt like as if she was looking at the carved text inside the pocket watch for 5 seconds, giving a shrug, "ah.. okay".. then leaving it off there. The emotion.. it just wasn't there! D:
But apart from that, I really liked this episode. \o/
