Episode Notes

  • This episode is adapted from content in Chapter 34: The Footsteps of a War Comrade, Chapter 35: The Sacrificial Lamb and Chapter 36: Alchemist in Distress.
  • The Transmutation Circles that appear in the background of this episode's title card are the circle on Alex Louis Armstrong's gauntlets and a simple circle.
  • Lan Fan's mask is shown completely restored in this episode after being destroyed in the previous one. In the manga, it's Alphonse who rebuilds her a mask, but in the anime it's implied that she possibly carries spares and replaced it herself.
  • Also missing is a scene on the train involving Ed, Al, and Winry learning that Ling is only 15 years old, a fact that greatly upsets Ed (both because Ling appears more mature and is taller than him). When Edward calls Ling a freak for his appearance, Lan Fan and Fu attack him from their hiding spot, the roof of the train.
  • There are some difference's from the manga about how Ed, Al and Winry get to know about Hughes' death.
    • Winry follows Ed and Al to see Hughes instead of splitting up, as in the anime.
    • In the manga, all three of them read about Hughes' death, and Ross being suspected. In the anime, they all get to know by various people; Ed and Al by Ross, and Winry by Mrs. Hughes.
    • In the manga, 2nd Lt. Ross is already suspected for murder and doesn't even talk to the Elrics.
