the episode got better towards the end, i was very annoied they missed out the newspaper part because that was just way better and more emotive and epic, the point of missing out the apple pie i have no idea, but i was really happy we had the part where winry grabbed ed's hand and pulled him inside her hotel room, i thought they may miss that out, the episode certainly became better toward the end
oh edit: wasn't the ling and ed hight comparision meant to be here!? wtf!!! i thought they liked exagerating ed's height i loved that part and isn't that when we find out how old ling actually is, isnt that little character detail slightly important?

Who knows what would happened, I was satified with the episode. I think they didnt left out apple pie scene but instead saving it for later snice Winry brought apples and were going to make it and even told Ed while she is sad so who knows they go with there. As far as jokes, who knows maybe in a later episode they will do the Ed comparing to Ling height joke there.
Let the series make this show more different and unique from the manga and first series as well as keeping the manga story. They can't animated word for word always. I perfer they catch me off guard witha twist or something to give each entity it's unique personality. I do agree that leaving out some parts were unncessacry but I'm hoping they might add something to make up for it. Maybe a extra Royai scene in and there or apple pie scene that is different that it will make Edwin fans cry out in joy. That's what I'm hoping.
