Episode NotesEdit

  • The Transmutation Array which appears as the background of this episode's title card is part of the array on Scar's right arm.
  • The entire game of cat and mouse played by Kimblee and Scar is absent from the manga. Kimblee still finds Scar, but it's much less thorough of an investigation.
  • After Kimblee uses his explosive alchemy to separate the train carriages, the rear cars mostly remain intact and just stop, while in the manga, they all crash and are destroyed, with Scar and Yoki emerging from the rubble later.
  • This episode features North City for the first time in any media. It was only mentioned in the manga beforehand, but never seen.
  • In the English dub of this episode, both Kimblee and Scar's references to the location of Scar's brother's wound as well as Olivier's threat to Edward's antenna forelock are dropped.
  • In the Adult Swim broadcast of this episode, the final post-credits scene regarding Marcoh and May finding the research notes was omitted due to time constraints.
