Episode NotesEdit

  • This episode is adapted from content in Chapter 104: The Center of the World, Chapter 105: On God's Throne and Chapter 106: The Abyss of Pride.
  • The Transmutation Array which appears in the background of this episode's title card is the Alkahestric portion of the Reverse Nationwide Transmutation Circle.
  • This episode does not air with the normal opening sequence for this season, but as the episode gets underway, the theme Rain is played over the episode itself.
  • Several battle scenes of the newly powered Father, present in the manga, are omitted from the beginning of this episode, skipping almost immediately to Hohenheim's counter-measure.
  • Greed stays with the group during Father's attacks in the manga, but in the anime, he's implied to have hidden out of view for the perfect time to strike.
  • In Edward's fight with Pride, the manga depicts both combatants taking greater advantage of height-based blind spots to land blows and making more flowery, martial-arts based movements. However, in this episode, the skirmish is depicted as being far more direct.
  • In the corresponding manga chapter, when Edward breaks off a piece of Pride's face, the hole created is higher up, obliterating the Homunculus' right eye. In this episode, the hole is further down, destroying the right cheek, but leaving the eye intact - likely to make the scene seem less disturbing to viewers.
