Impression after seeing it again, subtitled:
Still not a great episode, I never really liked the Rush Valley material. Better than the Rush Valley episode of the first series, though I preferred the watch and birth incidents' utilization in the first series, even if the former made a bit more sense here. One of the bits I wish that they had kept from the manga was the bridge incident, but they sort of cover it with Ed still feeling powerless during the birth. The birth was a little bit melodramatic, I might add, but most of the happenings surrounding it were pretty well handled. I'm not a huge Winry fan, but her telling Paninya about working hard to pay off Dominic's good faith was a great moment.
One episode was probably enough for this, though, and I'm glad they're getting to Izumi next.
Fullmetal Alchemist is over! Thank you, Hiromu Arakawa! ;_;
