Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood Episode 63 Discussion
This episode airs without a musical opening sequence, but Rain is played at the end of the episode as the credits roll over scenes of Van Hohenheim's life. Due to this episode being created from storyboards and not the actual manga pages this episode was animated before the chapter was officially releasedseveral scenes and locations are slightly different from the manga versions.
An example would be when Al is finally brought back with everyone around him, the entire area is in ruins in the manga, but in the anime, the majority of the building is still intact.
This also explains why many characters change their clothes, while in the manga, they stay in them until a new day has passed. In the English version, Truth's response of approval to Ed's sacrifice comes out in a fusion-type mix of Ed and Al's voices, somewhat similarly to how Truth takes on the affected voice of whoever it speaks to in the Japanese version.
In the manga, Father only lost and arm and leg to Greed's kamikaze attack; however, in this episode, his entire body is turned to graphite.Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood Episode 63 REACTION!! "The Other Side of the Gateway"
Granted, Al's only had his body back for four days, and these kinds of feelings are more than normal after the five years he's been without it. Ed, too, is making the necessary adjustments to having his right arm back.
But in the end, his challenges are nothing compared with Al's. The reason they're here in the first place is a result of one of those drawbacks. He would have continued to borrow Ed's clothes until his own were really needed, but it had become apparent that they were just too big for his emaciated frame.

He'd been working hard to get his body mass back up, though, eating as much as possible whenever he felt he could. But that train was slow-going, and Ed wasn't about to let his brother force himself sick. The thing that worries Ed the most, however, is the shape of the fifteen-year-old's muscles.
Being shut up in the Gate for so long sapped Al of virtually all the strength his body once had…explaining with great and aching clarity the arm-brace and more than a few fresh bruises. Al's been having trouble getting around, barely able to go a couple of steps without stumbling or outright falling. Just this morning, in fact, Al had gotten frustrated with himself for falling while getting out of the shower, for only managing a breakfast barely the size of his palm.
But Ed…Ed had been right there, had helped him up and supported him while still allowing the formerly-armored teen to retain his dignity. So don't worry about it so much, okay? There are no regrets. Besides, in the long-and-short-term scheme of things, they're happy.
And that is all Edward Elric Alphonse Elric has ever wanted for his beloved brother. Actually, come to think of it, Al's been this way all day—smiling gently and watching everything with a calm, almost-lazy air, relishing in things most everyday people take for granted.
Yet, all the same, Ed can sense that there is something underneath this relief and joy, something that will come out into the open sooner or later. In all honesty, though, it doesn't matter which it is. Because no matter the hour, the place, the what or who or what-the-hell-ever, Edward Elric will be there for his little brother till the day he dies.
A loving hand comes to rest on the younger's head then, ruffling his hair affectionately. The recipient's surprised eyes soften as they flick to meet his elder sibling's. Go ahead and take your time. I'm not goin' anywhere. Considering everything else they've had going on, he hasn't even questioned the state of the formerly-metal boy's hair… Finally, an elfin grin and matching chuckle, a light clap to his brother's back.
Al sits on one of their kitchen chairs in front, a spare towel wrapped around him to keep any misguided hair from falling on him, Ed standing behind with scissors, comb, and spray bottle at his disposal. Wetting the ends of the dirty-blonde hair and combing steadily through it, Ed holds a good section of the long, uneven tresses between two fingers as the scissors wait hungrily in his opposite hand.
Just as he is about to make the first cut, however, he remembers something important and stops. After a minute of not hearing or feeling anything except his brother's warm breath, Alphonse speaks up.
The little brother in Al doesn't intend to worry Ed, but when he smiles it's small and sad, and his eyes glaze over halfway like he's somehow stuck between this world and another. The grounding hold on his hair relinquishes, that same protective hand lays on the back of his neck.
He doesn't want to go too far, to reopen any old wounds. In the failed transmutation that results, Al's body is completely obliterated and Ed loses his left leg. In a last ditch attempt to keep his brother alive, Ed sacrifices his right arm to bring Al's soul back and houses it in a nearby suit of armor. After Edward receives automail prosthetics from Winry and Pinako, the brothers decide to burn their childhood home down symbolizing their determination and decision of "no turning back" and head to the capital city to become government sanctioned State Alchemists.
After passing the exam, Edward is dubbed the "Fullmetal Alchemist" by the State Military, and the brothers begin their quest to discover the nature of the fabled Philosopher's Stoneunder the direction of Colonel Roy Mustang.
Along the way, they discover a deep government conspiracy to hide the true nature of the Philosopher's Stone that involves the homunculithe alchemists of the neighboring nation of Xing, the scarred man from the war-torn nation of Ishval, and their own father's past.
