Another Saturday is upon us~  
And you know that Saturday means, yes? More FMA on [adult swim] tonight! Yay!

I'm going to lurk in the chatroom, the AIM room "FMAdub" all day most likely. And speaking of the dub, I emailed Vic Mignognawhatever (Someday I'll remember how to spell his last name)--English Ed voice--and got a reply today. So I'll share!


"Hi there, Zrana!

First of all, thank you so much for your kind words on FMA. I am so crazy about this series and count it an extreme privilege to work on it. I have seen Romi's wonderful performance as well (thru #48) and, while I don't sound like her, I hope the fans will like what I'm doiing with the role. The gratifying thing is that the Japanese creators like my voice for Ed....they wanted him to have a bit more weight and male quality to his voice. Believe me, I even thought I should play him a bit younger, but they like it where it is. However let me say this....the show just gets better and better. I really felt like I settled into the character around episode 5 or 6. So if you are liking it so far, I think you will really be more comfortable with it by then.

I hope to see you at a con this year sometime! I intend to do alot more now that FMA is in full swing. And then there's DN Angel, Peacemaker, etc.

Part two this Saturday...Cornello's gonna get his!! Keep in touch :)


For those interested, he'll be at Ohayocon in January (Columbus, Ohio). He's an amusing guy, I saw him at a panal in May before all the FMA dub business came up (only thing at the time was the fact FMA was licensed, but that's as far as things went at the time).

This isn't as cool as getting an email reply from Terry Pratchett, but it's still fun. n_n

I also drew a cute chibi. I started it as Anime Reactor but only got around to finishing it while I was bored out of my mind in Design class as the teacher went on and on about Contrast in design--he even complained and went "This isn't Drawing class, so put your drawings away." I was drawing to stay AWAKE! x.x


Current Mood: sillysilly
Current Music: i think it's Sanji from One Piece -- unlabeled MP3 ;_;

Oooh, it's good to know that the creators like his voice. ^_^ Yay... *looking forward to tonight*

I do the same thing when in church! The pastor just goes on~ But when I start to draw, someone who came with me goes and elbows me. I'm trying hard not to fall asleep! X_X

Same on Wednesdays when I start to pick at my nails. I don't care if I start to bleed where there is supposed to be nails! >

Cool ^^ I've talked with Vic over AIM multiple times XD He's an awesome guy thats for sure =) I can't wait to meet him at a con, I'd love to get him to sign my FMA 1 dvd when it comes out XD
Zranazrana on November 13th, 2004 12:00 pm (UTC)
over AIM? cool. I can definently tell he's an enthusiastic guy, and I seem to relate to energetic people better than non-energetic. n_n
Hakurahakura on November 13th, 2004 12:48 pm (UTC)
Yeah he's on almost every day for a while and he's really open to talk to ^^ He told me that he's going to record the second FMA video game voices XD When I asked which one he replied the RPG so I'm guessing the one he's going to work on is the Akagi Elixar no Akuma (I think thats how its spelt) ^^
Terterrierlee on November 13th, 2004 12:57 pm (UTC)
What's his screenname?

Hakurahakura on November 13th, 2004 02:47 pm (UTC)
I honestly don't know if I should share it on a public community @@ perhaps E-mail me?


If you know his AOL E-mail it's the same ___@AOL.com the part in front.

Do you know if they'll do Dream Carnival? =O!!
Hakurahakura on November 13th, 2004 02:49 pm (UTC)
He said is was the second RPG...I certainly HOPE we get Dream Carnival I'm looking forward to that one the most XD
Feriawithout_reason on November 13th, 2004 03:15 pm (UTC)
I'm glad that they're releasing both RPGs, but Dream Carnival needs love as well! XD *prays*
mikkeneko on November 13th, 2004 12:21 pm (UTC)
He has an Al-keychain! *admires*

I should send Vic an email.
Zranazrana on November 13th, 2004 12:26 pm (UTC)
we're going to drown him in emails. n_n;;

and yet here I'll share his website for those who want to do so!

He sounds like an amiable guy hyper guy o_O....somewhat reminds me of my cousin's radio show co-host in Montréal who's all humoristic and amiable and can be hyper when given coca-cola so I've been told.

I seriously think its great that the voice actors are liking what they're doing that actually makes for an even better show. =D

I saw him in May, too, although I didn't go to his panel. But I have a picture of him from his autograph session on Saturday--did you know he was wearing an Ed pin from the Funi panel? That caused big squees when I got my pictures developed and saw that. ^______^

(This is whimsy_chan, btw, not nee_chan. I've commandeered her computer! I'm a stealer. ^_^)
Sarah: victorygundamnook on November 13th, 2004 05:28 pm (UTC)
We should e-mail him and ask him if he's been approached by Anime Central yet. I want him to be there with Scott McNeil again!! BRAIDED BAKAS UNITE!! ^.^
Zranazrana on November 13th, 2004 05:57 pm (UTC)
I replied to his reply, and said I hope he comes to Acen again this next year. n_n

What a cute chibi! It reminded me of an RO chibi and I'm not sure why.

*dies at the email* I should email him too. Haha XD

Oooweee~ that's so cool that he responded! He sounds like a nice guy. X3

That chibi also is insanely adorable. And I totally feel you on the "drawing to stay awake" bit.. that's like, the story of my life. ^^;
I run on coffee and impatiencemelts on November 13th, 2004 01:15 pm (UTC)
Yay!! I'm glad that we have a VA of Ed who's also a fan the original FMA...Can't wait for tonight's episode 2.

And that Ed chibi is just soo cute..*pokes him*

Vic is so great! I've emailed him too, and he's so enthusiastic and nice! I hope he's at AX this year, so I can meet him/fangirl at him/get an autograph.
fortexdfortexd on November 13th, 2004 04:06 pm (UTC)
Me too! AX is the one con i'm planning to go to, and I would love to get the chance to meet Vic!
that song;: edalthan on November 13th, 2004 04:14 pm (UTC)
I'm coming to AX from the east coast, so I hope he's there, it'd make the trip even more worth it! That or maybe he'll be at Otakon...anything! Eep, I just want to meet him!
