I think this was a great episode. It was one large flashback that helped reiterate the Elric brothers’ situation and introduce a few more characters and how they met they are related to the brothers. This was a pretty sad episode with the death of their mother. I think what made it so sad was the viewers already knew she died and their attempt to bring her back was a failure that seeing them as little boys and being completely blindsided by the events and trying to fix everything just made it a lot sadder. I think with the introduction of Mustang we can expect to find out about state Alchemists and how the brothers are doing presently. I am enjoying this series a lot so far so I hope you consider watching it if you haven’t already, remember there is a link to the episode at the top.


Thank you and please feel free to leave your thought on the series so far and how you like this new way of reviewing.
