The way they've switched events around made this episode a bit boring to me (the emotionless monster that I am). However, I do wonder if it would have been confusing if they'd left it like in the manga, especially to people who haven't read it. The scenes where the brothers run by the phonebooth, and Gracia crying out of view were interesting additions.
Can a mob of angry fans please crowd outside BONES' studio and grump about them removing half of the little funny bits though? This is not series 1, this is not 98% SRS BSNS, all this seems to be proving is that for the full experience I/we should just stick to the book. Or is that the point? Get them interested with this cut up edition of the anime so they'll go out and buy the manga? Because clearly, if BONES have the budget to make the 4komas they have the budget to make us giggle a little more often in the series proper! >E *tantrum*
But yes, looks like next week shall be an epic one.
