I don't know how accurate this is, but Wikipedia has a listing of the Episode titles of Brotherhood up to ep. 5:


So, it looks like our episode break down is this:

2. Backstory
3. Lior
4. Nina
5. Introduction of Scar

So meaning if they intend to follow the manga, then we've got the Resembool, 3rd laboratory, (possible Al angst arc) Hughes, and Rush Valley arcs before we even GET to Greed.

...I dunno, I was kinda hoping that'd we'd screw that and jump right into Greed so we can get to Xing and stuff, but whatever. As long as they're planning on getting to it SOMETIME, I'm happy, I guess.

The Xing people and the identity of Pride are one of the few things left that they can actually hold off on and make surprises of in the new series, especially for people who read the manga. I think showing Father and manga!Sloth in that poster image was done mostly so that those people who read the manga actually did know FMA:B was following the manga story this time.

Father and manga!Sloth aren't in the OP either, so unless someone actually went looking for art from the show they wouldn't know who they are either. One of my friends who's only watched the first anime (and loved it) but doesn't know anything wrt the manga watched the first episode of FMA:B, and didn't know who Father was or what he was about when he popped up for his brief cameos. (I didn't tell her and spoil it for her either).

As for Pride, I'm sure people who only know the first anime and nothing else still think it's King Bradley, as my friend did.

As for the episode list, if it's accurate, it looks like they are going to try to get through the repeat stuff as quickly as they can. I'm glad we're going to get all the back story stuff in one go, and there are enough differences between what happened in Lior and with Nina in the manga then what happened in the first anime that it should make it at least interesting to see done again.

True, but I think some felt Father got "spoiled" because we got to fully see what he looks like so early, (not in the first episode, but in other spoilery stuff), which was the first big thing that was revealed about him - that he looks exactly like Hohenheim. Which wasn't revealed fully until chapter 50-something, after Hohenheim himself actually came back.
