Same here. Watched it yesterday.

The final line (which wasn't in the manga version) seemed out of place, though.

Where's that at, mind linking me?
Btw,
[ACG] Fullmetal Alchemist OVA - The Blind Alchemist

Whoever [ACG] are, at least the team who subbed this OVA, are truly amazing.
Superb translation and editing, perfect for such a poignant short episode

@Endless Twilight:

I had to watch it subbed, due to the lack of understanding Japanese, is there like a lost in translation effect going on, cause that outro line was just....... empty feeling, the line just before it would've been a better way to send it off.

@Mystique:
ACG is the Anime Club Generation community (best guess).
As for who's subbed OVA#2. I saw Hiyono's release, dunno if there's any others.
Just search Hiyono on AnimeSuki's main site and you'll find a link to their page, the click their fansub tab.

Both OVAs are subbed. The 2nd one, Simple People, is about Winrys earrings and why Riza decided to grow her hair out.

I like it, and there's plenty of humour in Simple People. Winry and the guys' reaction really says a lot about how different guys and girls think.

and the Blind Alchemist is also another wonderful episode. It gives more insight into the fictional world and shows us how other alchemists have also performed human transmutation. This is far more believable than the first series, which seems to imply that only Edward, Alu and Tucker, three alchemists out of so many, have attempted human transmutation.

Actually, the impression I've always gotten from FMA is that many have tried human transmutation but most didn't have the know-how to pull it off/died in the attempt. But you're right, it's great to see another alchemist who actually succeeded, it makes Ed and Al's success (well, they gave it life didn't they) seem a little bit more realistic. Heck, the blind alchemist did better than any other the other alchemists!

Episode II OVA: Simple People

This OVA episode was a rather informative story that answers or rather fills in the gaps as to when and why Winry began to wear earrings, and Hawkeye let her hair grow long.

Simplicity is what this OVA story addressed.

No, she didn't. I re-watched ep 12 where she recalled her transmutation, there's no baby, she used raw material just like Ed and Al.

I'm not sure about Judau's case, but it's highly possible that he did use the girl's dead body as material, and that's why that thing has the same features as hers.

Oh, okay. I could've sworn it looked like she did in the manga, but guess I was wrong. Makes sense now. =]

Manga didn't even show Izumi doing the transmutation as I recall.

No, they didn't. I was thinking about the flashback scene and it showed the baby's hand reaching out to her. I guess I got it confused with the original anime, cause I remember it showing her placing the baby in the middle of her circle, so that's what I was thinking of.

I think Izumi clearly stated that she used remnants of the baby's body to make her transmutation...

As for Jude's case, we don't know, but I prefer to think that the reason his creation was so good and actually functionnable is because his human transmutation theory was a lot more thought-out than the others'

I liked the 2nd OVA, I found it interesting that both Winry and Riza had inspired to change something about themselves.

Riza should keep her hair down more often though.
