Fullmetal Alchemist Manga vs First TV Series - ROUND EIGHT

So, this is it. The final round of manga/first anime series comparisons. After volume 8 of the manga (actually during volume 8), the differences between the two versions of FMA expand into a large gulf. In volume 8, the Xingese characters are introduced. In episodes of the series, there's a return to Lior, where Scar tries for revenge against those who destroyed his people.

It's been fun comparing.
