I enjoyed the episode and liked some of the background changes they made like Roy shaving in the bathroom or Havoc wearing civilian clothes when he goes to visit Falman & Barry.
Changing up the the reveal for Hughes' death was actually well done, especially when Winry finds out about Hughes just by simply visiting Elysia and Gracia rather than the newspaper. The phone booth was a nice touch as well.
I actually kind of liked that Roy and Armstrong's conversation was condensed a bit, since it's wiser to save the bits and pieces of the Ishval War for the arc.
There were a few inconsistencies with some of the artwork or something that jumped out (Roy having his sleeves rolled up one frame and having them unrolled the next - I figured it out though, it happened off-screen) but for the most part, it was fine.
I will say though that even Roy's slightly unshaven look made him look like a thirteen year old trying to grow some facial hair.
