I like how Winry pierced here ears for Riza, and Riza let her hair grow longer for Winry. Such a nice side story. ^_^

Yeah but such superficial simple reasons ;P

Anyway am I the only one who really liked the ending "music"? I found that humming quite enchanting xD

The second I heard the ending song, I skipped it. I didn't really like it. =P

I always wondered why the female lead is resembling each other so much.

interesting I just watched this and episode 39 of brotherhood... ties very well with it since she gives back the earrings to Ed in a small scene...

interesting timing

I thought that the Blind Alchemist was one of a kind, so I'm really glad they made one more. Hopefully not the last. Couldn't stop smiling throughout the entire 10 minutes of it. Pity they're so short, but they fill in my need for some "peaceful" outtakes.

Loved how Winry is so easy to placate. Hehe! :)

Definitely a must watch for any FMA fan! :D

That was really good, the humor was good and the length was just right as well. The ending music was....different, but it wasn't that bad.
Will there be more OVA's? I sure hope so.

I just loved how Ed pacified Winry with a gift the moment she started flipping out xD
Much less intense than 'The Blind Alchemist', but still a very nice side story.

This makes episode 39 seem a little clearer with Winry's earings.

But I also liked Hawkeye's side of the story.

I also thought that this special complimented episode 39.

If more of these side stories are as good as these two, it'll get a very good score from me. Probably an 8 or so.

Keep them coming! ^_^

Nice story. The piercings and the hairstyle. Wish they'd given the earrings more sentimental value, but I suppose getting them as gifts from the guys you've always thought of as brothers is special enough.
Amusing that if they'd kept buying her more she'd keep getting her ears pierced to hold them all at once.
When they said those lines I thought "do your ears hang low.." XD

Nice shipping moments for Winry, Ed and Al, and a nice relationship builder for two characters we don't see interact much.

Wonder if Winry and Riza realize that they single-handedly changed the other's style?

Annoyed at how long it took me to find a sub and get it watched >.>
Hoping for more of these short stories that build on a character's backstory. :)

I loved this short story. Is cute and touching :3
Riza's long hair is beautiful *---* I loved seeing her shooting with her hair down <3333 darn sexy *0*~

It was nice to see why Winry gave her earrings to Ed in Briggs... it gives another meaning for the act... I liked it, since I didn't know that Ed gave her them <3 cute.

I'm currently loving these specials, they give another meaning to "character development" and also help us to bound to them... Also, they're new even to the ones who read the manga, so it's really, really nice to see something new.
I'm wondering if there's going to be one about the Xing guys... I love them *-*

Not new at all to those who read the manga. So far all of them have been based on special side chapters.

As for one about Xing, the closest I can think of would be showing what Maria Ross did while in Xing (she did a lot of amazing things while over there).

Aw, it's sweet that Winry and Hawkeye affected each other to such great extents :3

Ed and Al's conspirital faces ... =__=;

Also, why does are these specials "airing"? Does that mean that more are being released? :D

Hmm.. How come I managed to forget to watch this one, despite having it in my anime folder for like... Since it came out? xD..

Anyway, I guess this explains why Winry's got so many ear rings then? ^^;

Also, it looked really strange seeing Riza with long hair o.O

Lovely little short story. :) Loved learning the history behind Winry's earrings and Hawkeye's hairstyle... And I have to agree with Hawkeye. A lot of people's reasons for doing things are simple... no?

Anyways, really liked this little "episode"~

This special episode was pretty funny. Ed's way of handing Winry gifts was pretty hilaroius. I guess this explains why Winry has so many piercings and Hawk-Eye hair length. All in all, this was a pretty good episode.

This was one of those fun to watch light-hearted episodes. I was dying of laughter at Ed and Al's reaction when their gift plan worked LoL. Hawkeye/Winry were cute this episode. ^^

I was about to give it a 3 or 4 out of 5 but....... the second ARMSTRONG TAISHO's superman theme played I had to give it a 5/5!

These. I loved this. Riza and Winry are both great characters. To know that they influenced eachother in such a small way is great! :D

I expected Riza to have a bit more depth to her hairstyle, but hey, something is better than nothing.

So they influenced each other, that's why they look almost the same. But Winry is still prettier :P

I really liked this episode because of the Winry and Hawkeye influence. xD Great little backstory. And man, are they going to end every episode with a deep line?
