Episode Notes

  • This episode is based on content in Chapter 63: The Promise Made for 520 Cenz and Chapter 64: The Northern Wall of Briggs.
  • The Transmutation Circle which appears in the background of this episode's title card is the circle from Alex Louis Armstrong's gauntlets.
  • The end of this episode marks the 2009's anime's first appearance of Edward's altered cloak with the fur trim.
  • Bradley's presence at the family meeting was absent in the manga. In fact, they stay in the library, rather than go to the Führer's home.
  • It can be deduced from his remark and demeanor at the Central City train station that Kimblee recognized Lt. General Grumman even through the old woman disguise. The dub line makes it seem like he knew that the person was suspicious only, but the original had a bit more weight to it.
  • Kimblee's encounter with the disguised Grumman as well as his investigation of Scar's whereabouts are anime-only scenes and do not occur in the manga.
  • Once again, in the showing on Adult Swim, they cut out the post-ending theme segment of Ed and Al riding north on the train for more commercial time.
