What did they DO with Gluttony's voice???? Why does he sound like an 80 year old British pervert???? Nooooooooo!!!!!!!!!! >.< I despair for the other Sins....

Other than that, the other voices were pretty good ^^. Al is getting more feeling and Ed is growing on me. I'm kind of wary of the next episode though, Ed and Al's child voices sound waaay corny in the preview ^^;;;

Al is getting more feelings? *hopes hopes* Yes, please, let the kid get into his role right.

I am quite afraid to hear Gluttony now. X_X

Gluttony wasn't cute enough to be Gluttony. You'd think that someone stuffing their face with someone else would be cuter. *shrug*

^^;;; I never thought that Gluttony would be cute, the 2 year old's voice only made him sound creepy and disturbing, I think he's the only Sin that really scares me...

gluttony sounded like a vampire X3

Also, never mind the British accent (teh British are eeeevil). God, they're probably going to make Greed sound like a snake or give him a lisp or something >.

My thoughts exactly on Gluttony. Until I heard that line I had 100% confidence in the dub. Now... I fear for some of the other voices... *tear*

Hopefully, Gluttony will remain the only "victim". :/

Otherwise, Al sounded a lot more emotional. Other voices were great as usual! I'm trying to stay hopeful here, anyways.

the first thing i said when i heard Gluttony's voice other than "NNNNNNNNNNOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!" was "THEY MADE HIM SOUND INTELEGENT!!!"
and then i wanted to cry
subarukesubaruke on November 14th, 2004 05:47 am (UTC)
Yeah, the thing about Gluttony is that he doesn't plot or plan or think, he eats, period. Gluttony isn't that sophisticated (next thing you know, he'll be eating with 3 sets of knives and forks and drink with his little finger turned up...)

that the thought of that alone makes my brain want to implode

Gluttony doesn't have that cute innocence appeal anymore. T_T

o_o I fear for Envy!

I fear for Envy!

I... didn't even think about that. Oh no. T_T

Gluttony's dub sound upset me...
subarukesubaruke on November 14th, 2004 05:48 am (UTC)
Gaah, poor Envy, the worst thing they could do is give him a girl's voice (which he is not, we know that for sure now) >.<. It's even more worrying that they haven't posted his VA yet...

I think Gluttony's VOICE might not be so bad--but the script. THe way one PHRASES a sentence can change it's undertones greatly.

I love Aaron now. I can seem him just getting better and better at this.

I can't wait to hear how Aaron does in ep 3 as Al.

And VIC IS SO COOL! I'll have more on this in a later post.

"THe way one PHRASES a sentence can change it's undertones greatly."

(Slight spoiler for mid/late-40s episodes.)

That reminds me...When talking about to the leader of the Homunculi, I wonder if the dubs will say "that person" or "he". The dubs use of "he" was misleading (as well as incorrect? "Ano hito" is "that person" as far as I know) and I'd hate for the dub to do something like that as well :\
Zranazrana on November 13th, 2004 10:53 pm (UTC)
I wouldn't be surprized if they say "that man". I usually hear "ano hito" more in reference to men. but that might be coincidence. I know hito means person though...

No, they'll say she. Bandai did that with WR, and completely destroyed the shock value. -.-
Saya Aenslandsaya_aensland on November 14th, 2004 02:09 am (UTC)
I believe the directors have access to the script of the end of the series. So, translating "ano hito" to "he" or "that man" would be either pure incompetence or blindness. The fansubbers were confused by The Father from the manga, and assumed Hohenheim was That Person, hence the translation mistake.

I think they'll keep that asepect secret. Rather than translating that line they might just rewrite it or throw it out.

I actually got to watch tonight, 'cause I was at a friend's house with cable.
Gluttony sounded WAY too intelligent. Complete sentence structures are not his forte. Lust's voice did sound pretty good, for an English dub. None of the voices will ever top the original Japanese seiyuu in my book, but I'm an elitist. ;D

Yes, gluttony needs some work, he's talking way too smart and he doesnt have that creepy dumb as a brick but deadly appeal. ;-; I miss his cute voice!!

sappedsapped on November 14th, 2004 01:34 pm (UTC)
Well it's a good thing Gluttony doesn't really have any huge monolouges in the series.

Eds child voice sounded too much like the adult voice he uses. Als child voice was close to what Als was but not quite there
mikkeneko on November 14th, 2004 05:48 pm (UTC)
They seem to be doing weird things with the Sins. If Lust ever actually seduced someone in the series it was news to me, and Gluttony... that was just bizarre. It's been said before, but... Gluttony has only a rudimentary intelligence. His Japanese is extremely simplistic -- he uses about the minimum possible words you can use and make yourself clear. He doesn't even use particles, for god's sake.

I know, they made my stupid Gluttony into some Scottish pedophile T_T. Oh, please let the other sins sound good. Or let Gluttony's voice sound better in future episodes.
