The build up of the Roy/Riza relationship in brotherhood is SO freaking good. It’s seriously the most subtle thing I’ve ever seen. For example, when Bradley tells Mustang he knows exactly who to use against him, the scene shifts to Riza’s name being spoken and the reveal of her transfer. Then, we see Roy silently freaking out. It’s like why is this a big deal? Just like when Riza freaked out when she thought Lust killed him. You keep asking WHY when these moments happen. The reveal of their back stories and relationship is legit the most organic thing ever. It’s a freaking masterpiece. Ok I’m done.
