"I don't believe in God, but... If you exist, please just for now"
Damn Ed, you hypocrite. Decide for yourself
I was surprised by this - was that line in the manga? It seemed to me like it should only take an even more dire helpless situation for Ed to compromise himself *that* much.
I also noticed those wind turbines, and they looked a bit out of place since it didn't exactly look like a particularly windy DESERT.
Ed actually did comment about praying at that point in the manga.
"At a moment like this... you can probably do nothing but pray... Pathetic...." (Vol 5, Chapter 19; in online viewers it would be page 5)
Yes, I completely butchered the official Finnish edition, but Ed really became a hypocrite.
I agree that the pacing was questionable in the first half of the episode, I had hard time keeping up with it. I kind of found it annoying that they didn't keep the Paninya fight in Rush Valley, because in vol 8, the residents complained because Ed broke their houses again while chasing after Ran Fan. I found this funny.
Also the missing bit of Pinako-Dominic history. They DEFINATELY should have kept that.
The bridge scene was also missed, not only because of the character development but also because it shows Ed's determination to help. It also offered a good bit of hands-on alchemy explaining (the mass dragging the alchemy-made stone bridge down). When reading the manga, this info made it seem more realistic, in a way.
