FMA Dub: I have NIGHTMARES (Seriously, I DID..x_x)  
Once again my subconscious decides to prove to me that I have no life. Or even less of a life rather. I had a dream last night. I can't remember most of it...but what I do remember, I fear.



Cut because I feel like it and the cuts are cute. Don't ask, I'm screwed up this morning. Okay. Nightmare about the dub.

Last night I was horrified by determining the dub actors for the first part of the cast and hearing a few. I have to say that Riza is a HUGE disappointment...I mean come on...in that little clip thing on AS she's...wearing pink...and talking like a prep...I thought she was supposed to be WINRY or something...x_X; She seems more fitting for that role than Riza, that's for sure...

And then, I was thinking "Oh god...what about all the others...that we DON'T know yet...-shudder-" Well, looks like my dream confirmed how terrified I was about horrible voice actors taking my favorite characters and shoving them into a realm of fucked up I've never seen before in my life and never want to see again.

All I remember of this nightmare was Greed sounding like Goku, Wrath sounding like...oh hell I don't know but it wasn't just bad voice acting the LINES were screwed too and my GOD the person couldn't speak straight and kept saying the same thing over and over again like a RETARD I was like "NO FUCK NOT WRATH HOW COULD THEY!"

Here's a photoedit prompt for you guys:

Get a picture of really freaked out Ed....or rather, pictures of really freaked out anybody for that matter....and add the subtitle: "You're telling me THIS GUY is my VOICE ACTOR?!" It's fitting. My nightmare with Wrath and really horrible VA dubs was horrific. I hope to Ishbar that we don't have to actually live that nightmare. x_x;

Coleen's extremely talented - check out some of her work in Kiddy Grade before you get too worked up about her. I think she's a good fit.

And the voice that voice actors use for interviews is their normal voice. One of the nice things about being a voice actor is the ability to make your voice sound wildly different from the way you normally talk, and Coleen certainly has this ability. ^_^

I really don't understand all the hate and panic for a dub that we haven't really heard anything of yet...

I'm just taking what I've heard from other roles and the like, I don't mean to put it down that much but I'm just saying it DID give me a nightmare, I'm just jumpy about dubs, as most every one I've heard demeans the adult part of the series to something not too short of cheap American cartoons. x_x; Cowboy Bebop had a good dub because they didn't sound like they were supposed to be in a cartoon. That's the problem with most dubs, they make it sound too much like it's supposed to be a cartoon. They don't sound like PEOPLE...they sound like CARTOONS...x_x;

Heh - my experience has been the opposite. Most dubs today are excellent, with a few exceptions. I tend to especially like the ones from the Texas talent pool (ADV and some FUNi), so I'm looking forward to this.

Oh, and she's also supposed to be playing Rose, from what I've heard, so we'll get to hear two very different performances from her.

Any released Voice clips of the english cast? I really want to hear em
Sydxkesshoux on October 20th, 2004 06:32 am (UTC)
Just the few clips strewn in with the behind the scenes thing on the AdultSwim site, only Ed and Al. Scroll back in the community if you don't have the link, it's posted a ways back.

So then are you saying that in RL the actors are supposed to dress like or in essence of thier character(s)? o_o;

Riza's japanese VA was dressed like how Ms. Clinkenbeard was, Toyoguchi (Winry) was wearing something that didn't exactly suit her character (it was a wierd floral dress. Mind, Toyoguchi-san's clothing style varies alot).

I personally don't feel that you should judge an actor on the way s/he dresses. Not all actors dress like thier character. Plus, not all people sound like the character whose voice they'll record. I think I'm actually going to like this dub and just the only voice I'll need to get used to would be Ed's since we are all used to Ms. Romi's voice at the moment whereas he's being voiced by Vic, a guy.

Anyhoo, you said it was a dream and you are by all means justified in your opinions. =3

I just don't think you should put it down until you've watched an episode or two. When I saw the original version I thought Romi as Ed was absolutely horrid then a few episodes later I slowly got used to it. (Like by episode 13 i was used to it.)

*goes back to school work* XD;

I'm not trying to put it down I'm just stating that it's a first impression for me and personally, I am terrified by pink. @_@;

I'm just going to remain neutral about the whole thing until I hear the first few episodes, unlike my sister who is all "THE ENGLISH VERSION IS GOING TO SUCK SEE IT ALREADY SUCKS" and everything...

But now I'm kind of afraid to hear Riza's VA... And for some reason, I keep on thinking Legally Blonde... 8D;;

Give it a chance, I'm personally biased against America anyway, I have strong opinions that the world sucks as a whole, and that America is the center of a black hole going to suck us all down into hell. >>; Yay. Hell. It'll be fun there. -Cue not caring, please insert more things that make sense here, not satanic, please, I'm not satanic, I just don't like humanity...x_X-
