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.

Lol. I have to partly disagree with the toaster post though - I think it holds (depressingly) true for anime1!Ed, but manga!Ed would probably have blamed Winry ("You tinkered with the toaster didn't you!" and he would have been right) that said, manga!Ed still has a ridiculous guilt complex, I love it when Al calls him out on it. Oh Ed, do you even realize how absurd you are?

It's odd, Ed in all his manifestations has a ridiculous guilt complex but it really plays out differently in the anime1 and the manga...I don't even know how to qualify it.

No...it's more like...manga!Ed has a responsibility complex...he has to take full responsibility for the consequences of each of his actions - which may results in guilt. Like, in chapter 77 - he tells Lion King "I'm in this situation because I've been too soft, I made a mess and now I gotta clean it up" as he's about to use his own life energy to heal his punctured stomach of DOOM. To summarily: it's Ed's fault that he got fatally injured because he followed his resolve not to kill and didn't gut Kimbley like he deserved. He doesn't feel guilty about it, but it's still his mess.

...Oh. MY. GOD Edward Elric, you are insane. I wonder where he got that from? My money's on Izumi and Roy (you're an adult now, adult = being responsible), and a bit from Trisha (older brother stuff = be responsible). Not sure how Izumi factors into it but I'm sure she does. And Ed worships her. Seriously. Look at his face when the boys say they'll show her how they've improved. Or any interaction with her when she isn't yelling at them.

Toaster angst *snicker*
