Eh, I didn't really mind this episode too much. They could've kept some things from the manga, but what they did keep was okay. The only thing I really hated was the dramatic music during the birth scene, but I thought the Italian restaurant music fit the burning house scene pretty well.
I don't care about the thirty-second equivalent exchange sequence, considering that the old anime always had Al's speech in the beginning, but I wish that they'd keep things more consistent. It's like they include it whenever they feel like it.
And I find the FULLMETAL ALCHEMIST! dude hilarious. I bet he knows that everybody hates him, and does that extra giggle just to piss people off.
Izumi next week! Looks like the animation is good for next episode again.
