Episode Notes

  • The time span of Miles returning back to Briggs is a tad less clear in the anime when compared to the manga. In the episode, Miles just says "We did a thorough search of the rubble and could not find Edward Elric" implying that some kind of time had passed, but it's never directly stated. In the manga, however, he clearly states it has been 10 days since Edward's disappearance. This is vital as it also gives Kimblee 10 days to go and fetch the Drachman army, and makes it a bit more clear as to how he was able to bring them so quickly.
  • The Adult Swim airing of this episode cut out the post-episode bit of Zampano phoning Bradley about Marcoh's whereabouts, with the payoff happening next episode.
