Episode Notes

  • This episode is adapted from content in Chapter 1: The Two Alchemists and Chapter 2: The Price of Life.
  • The Transmutation Circles that appear in the background of this episode's title card are the Elric brothers' Human Transmutation Circle and a simple circle used by Alphonse at the beginning of the episode to repair a radio.
  • In the corresponding manga chapter, Cornello was well aware of Edward's appearance and youth even before meeting him, but in this episode, he is shocked to discover that the Fullmetal Alchemist is not the armored Alphonse.
  • In the manga, Alphonse's hollow state is revealed earlier when Cray shoots off his helmet and Ed uses it as a projectile to subdue a guard. In this episode, however, Edward uses one of the guards staves to produce the same effect and Alphonse is not shot until later.
  • The scenes involving the mutated Cornello were not part of the manga version of the story.
  • Edward mentions the tale of Icarus, a boy who flew on wings of wax and feathers. The wings melted when he flew too close to the sun, causing him to plummet from the skies. This tales also serves as a comparision of Edward Elric's backstory.
