Ep 43 – “The Stray Dog” / “Norainu wa Nigedashita” (野良犬は逃げ出した)

A complete stranger tries to strike up a conversation with Winry upon the arrival of Winry and Sheska in Resembool. Pinako introduces him to Winry as Edward and Alphonse’s father, Hohenheim of Light. Meanwhile, the Elric brothers flee Lior for Resembool, while Mustang’s brigade, on orders from Bradley to capture the boys, is in hot pursuit. Once cornered, Mustang explains to the brothers that he is not after them due to military orders, but because he is angry at them for not seeking his protection.
