They actually aren't rushing as much as they did for the old anime stuff. And also, it may seem like they are rushing because it seems like a lot of material when you read it, but once you put it in an episode it's shorter. I think the pacing for this episode was good. I think they should have left the scene where we see that Armstrong abandoned Ishbal, but that's one of my biggest complaints. I also wanted the scene where Winry and Riza met each other again and made comments about the hair/earrings in the manga, it's a nice wink to those who read the gaidens. I didn't mind the pie being left out that much, especially because she had the apples in front of her. It's like a way of saying "the pie is incomplete right now, so is Winry's wish of having Hughes taste it someday." And the end of the episode was great!

My eyes actually watered when I saw Ross' face when she realized that she had accidentally told Ed about Hughes' death. I also thought it appropriate because since she is the one who was later accused, it'll have more of an impact on those who haven't read the manga because they saw a little more of her and in that scene we see her genuine sadness about the whole thing. And it'll affect Ed more too I guess.

I agree with this. More emotional fodder for the next episode.

The pacing, fortunately, was very good this episode (with the exception of Ed's running scene, which stretched just long enough to be awkward). This anime is still pretty touch-and-go right now - I never know whether the next episode will be brilliant or crap - so I suppose I'd better be happy for any little improvements.

The phone booth and Gracia crying scenes were interesting touches. Somehow, I found this episode more emotional and depressing than Hughes' death; possibly the latter lost some emotional impact for me after seeing it so many times, and it was rather badly paced. But this one...I haven't been this moved since Nina.

Nevertheless, the music could use some work. I miss FMA1's music. Sigh.

Great ending, lots of suspense. Loads of epic coming up next week. Waiting for the next episode of Brotherhood is always kind of painful for me, since I can't help suspecting that it'll be screwed up again, but I guess I'll remain cautiously optimistic.


If everything appears to be going well, you have obviously overlooked something.
