Winry takes charge of an unexpected birth, and we finally get to meet Izumi Curtis, the boys' alchemy teacher. The flashback in this volume works much better than the flashback in a later volume regarding the Ishbal civil war. The reveal of Ed's watch and what it means to him--and the fact he hasn't even shown it to Al--is heartbreaking and fabulous. This volume does a great job of giving us a real sense of the depth of these characters.
