Maybe it would've been nice if BONES had just left everything 100% in tact from the manga, but then again, why would I want to watch something that I've already read? I like being surprised and Brotherhood is doing a good job at doing that, for better or worse. This week I think they made the better decision, by taking all the talky, emotional stuff and putting it one place. It made the episode have more impact in my opinion.
This. I think I've said this some other time before, but I'd rather have Brotherhood take liberties with some stuff from the manga than copy every exact detail, panel by panel. Even if BONES did mess up on some parts, they did make some good decisions.
Just because they skipped a funny Edwin scene or whatever doesn't mean that they're doing terrible with characterization and development. They'll probably do the apple pie scene in another episode.
Although the biggest risk BONES is taking right now is not making the Edwin and RoyxRiza fangirls happy. XD;
