Episode NotesEdit

  • When Ed first sees Lust, he seems to recognize her from somewhere. It wouldn't be revealed until three episodes later in Episode 4, which occurs during the Elric brothers' flashback, that Ed briefly saw her when he was in a graveyard trying to solve a mystery.
  • The giant bird that Cornello creates with his fake Philosopher's Stone (and his apparent affinity with parrots in general) is exclusive to this series. In the manga and 2009 anime, only the waiting Chimera fights Ed.
