Does anyone know why Full Metal Alchemist's 1st 10 or so episodes aired in that order? I get that the 4th-8th are flashback episodes but they don't show that; like a fade out or something. They begin just as any other episode. Then it picks up again 3 years later. Why didn't they just put episode 1 & 2 later on, say 9 & 10? It puzzled me a bit, anyone else?

I'm new here so if there is already a post similar please let me know so I can take this down and find my answer there.

Probably to make it less cliche but more so to follow the manga on that aspect before they went their own direction on the anime adaptation.
