Episode NotesEdit

  • Several elements are changed around in this episode. Lan Fan has a more active role in Ling's deal in the manga, to protect Mustang's group even while they're in the hospital, but in the anime she just stays with Ling. Also, Al visits Mustang before Ed fixes him up, but in this episode Ed comes back first.
  • The events of Heymans Breda's search for Tim Marcoh in the Nameless Village are notably shortened in this episode compared to the original manga chapter. In the manga, Envy disguised as Breda (in his military uniform) arrived with Gluttony first to kidnap Marcoh by reminding him of the deal he made with Lust, shortly before the real Breda (dressed in civilian clothes) arrived, causing the villagers to recognize him despite it being the first time he visited the village. This also took place before Jean Havoc made it clear that Mustang must leave him behind to accomplish his own goal.
