Episode NotesEdit

  • This episode is adapted from content in Chapter 84: Shadow of the Pursuer and Chapter 85: The Empty Box.
  • The array that appears in the background of this episode's title card is the Ouroboros.
  • Major General Hakuro makes his first appearance in the series, his ear wound absent. His misinformation moment is also portrayed differently in each media. In the manga, he has a long standing bitterness towards both Grumman and Mustang, unknowning that they had used him to set Bradley up in the assassination attempt. In the anime, since he had never been seen before this episode, he is merely a background character relaying information.
  • This episode makes it apparent that Edward has grown taller than Winry.
