The DVD clips  
I posted this in the topic that csakuras posted but since it's at the bottom/on the next page, I thought it'd be good to make another topic:

On the official English page, they have a DVD section and had two clips. They were down yesterday but I was looking at it out of curiousity if all of our pleading/crying/setting selves on fire worked in getting their [stalker FUNi peoples!] attention to fix it. XD

And it worked. =D

the clips

I've been listening to them over and over again to get a somewhat-clear opinion on the English take on the series. Cornello is cool. "SINNERZ!" XD

For some reason, Aaron's voice doesn't seem to fit the picture, though, when I simply listen to it without watching the footage, it seems fine. I guess I make too much of a connection with the Japanese VA with that hunk of armor. Or he was still settling in during that episode.

In any case, I think it's a good dub. I like the energy in it and it captures the spirit of FMA.

... I actually like Ed's voice. D:

The supporting characters... not so much. But Ed and Al sound pretty great! I am in awe.

Man I wish I got CN up here in Canada -_- I have to wait until the DVD's are released to check out the dub.... but from the clips I do like Ed and Al's voice XD I reallyrexpect Ed's voice actor (Vic) because he is SO into it and absoultly loves the series and to me thats more important ^^ I wonder what cons he's going to XD

Damn, I really wish I had cable now. My lucky brother, he gets to watch it in his dorm room >.<

Al sounded kinda monotone at first but I got used to it. Ed isn't that bad. Cornello does sound cool for a guy who'll only be there for two episodes. And Roze is just another whiny bint.

I wish I could watch more T.T

Roze is just another whiny bint no matter who does her voice. XD

The clips won't work for me, but clips in .asx format never seem to -_-;; All it does is downlaod it too my computer than when I try and play it Windows Media Player says it can't find the file, if the file is supposed to be streamed off the site then it won't let me do that at all.

Anyone got any ideas how I can make this evil computer of mine play these files?

Ed's, still annoying, but I could get used to it. Al's is starting to sound weird, but not bad. Pretty good voice acting... Yep, not bad. Will get these DVDs, for sure. ^_^

Yeah, Ed's annoying, but I can definitely get used to it, and I'll definitely be able to get used to him after a few eps. If I watch the dub cold (... like, don't watch subs before it airs on CN) I think he'll be fine.

I don't like it. But then maybe because I hate dubs anyway, it just doesn't work for me. And Al...oh the pain. Despite that I can definitely see Ed's voice actor doing a better job as the series goes on, I just can't get my head around such an American Ed. I'd pictured the FMA characters to have British accents, but I suppose you can't really do that.
The Sky_wasurenai on October 20th, 2004 10:55 am (UTC)
Urgh .. thank god other people are saying the same thing. I was begining to feel like I was the only one who didn't like these dub voices.

It's not necessarily that the voices themselves are bad, I just don't think they fit at all. For some reason, everytime I heard Ed's US voice, I think of Sonic the Hedgehod .. and Sonic is a good thing, mind you, but not good as Ed.

I don't know, the voices just don't seem to fit to me .. oh well. I guess we'll see how things go, maybe it'll get better.
Rune Arialaruneariala on October 21st, 2004 04:31 am (UTC)
I agree. After 51 episodes, you just equate a certain voice with a character. I really *liked* Ed's "I'm going through puberty but smoke a pack a day" voice. Now it all just reminds me of the first season of DBZ.
Yuuki Hikariyuukihikari on October 20th, 2004 10:56 am (UTC)
ARGH... I whined all day yesterday and now I can't hear them cause I'm at school... I have to wait until 10pm tonight when school/work is over *POUT* ;_;

*runs off the class* @_@
avianthropy on October 20th, 2004 11:07 am (UTC)
OMG I LOVE THEM ALL. Ed, Al, Cornello, Rose... I love the voices. I'm so sad now that I'm not going to be able to watch the dub until two months after it starts airing.

Cornello's voice is the epitome of "typical cheesy power-crazed idiot bad guy"... which is perfect, because that's exactly what he is. XD
Marikaitou_marina on October 20th, 2004 11:10 am (UTC)
Once again, gotta say, the voices really aren't too bad. I'm STILL picking at the fact that Ed sounds a little too old, but when I heard him do the "Strrrrike!" in that one clip, I was pretty sold. The actor clearly has something of a handle on what he's doing XD And I really like Al's, though he doesn't sound as serious as he should. Al's cute and innocent, yeah, but he's also quite serious at times. *shrugs* Still, overall, not bad. Even Roze sounded good, though I'm feeling a little picky over their pronunciation of her name. But meh, it's SO uber-unimportant.
Silent Genosilentgeno on October 20th, 2004 11:19 am (UTC)
horrible... I cant believe that anyone actually thinks the dub is ok, did you guys even watch the fansubs? There is no emotion in there voice at all, its all flat. Out of all of them so far i think al's voice is the worst, please tell me this is a joke and that this isn't really the dub.
She and her Catwednesday_tea on October 20th, 2004 12:08 pm (UTC)
So don't watch it? :/

Feriawithout_reason on October 20th, 2004 11:37 am (UTC)
Cornello was the best. Seriously. XD <3

Ed gets a bit of time to get used to, but the fact that Vic is so into the roll makes it better. I really don't like his [Vic's] ego though. D:

Al is sounds awkward, but we know that his VA isn't experienced. I suppose he'll get better over time. D:

Ew, Roze. XD

*worships Cornello*
Sarah: edogundamnook on October 20th, 2004 11:39 am (UTC)
The bits and pieces that I heard of Vic's voice as Ed earlier, I couldn't stand him. He sound way too series, not really any emotion and way too old sounding. But now with these clips, Vic has sold me as Ed!! ^.^ Of course nobody will be better than Romi Paru as Ed!

Al's voice will take some getting use to. But normally new actors are like that at first and get better as the series goes on.

All and all I have very high hopes for the dub!! ^.^
Sarah: sumimasengundamnook on October 20th, 2004 11:42 am (UTC)
Ack, I meant Romi Paku! ^^;
Nalavashi: Ed - Bad daynalavashi on October 20th, 2004 11:40 am (UTC)
Didn't like it. I think it's really awesome how the VA's love the show and have tried their best, but it hasn't won me over by a long shot. I thought Ed sounded like a typical American cartoon character, and Al was just... I can't even comment on him without being blatantly rude, so I won't even touch that one.

I loved Ed's "strike!" though. That's one of the few lines from the original that I thought sounded cool, and he totally nailed it, perfect. XD No one can reasonably argue that Vic hasn't done his homework.

That amused me.

This is pretty good, but really, if they screw up everyone else, I honestly won't care. comma dot dot comma colon

Awesome! I've really gotten to like Ed's english voice. And he said crap. However, I am sad that he will probably never say fuck in the english version.

Cornello. Do I detect a weird British accent in there? HAHAHAHA <3.

I love love love Al's voice. "I got it, I got it!" SO CUTE, HOLY CRAP. Rose's isn't bad, either! Yeeey.


Wait. What did Ed just say when he threw Al's helmet at the dude? I seriously can't make it out.

I can't wait. :>>>
