Just got back from AnimeFest-- a relatively small con in Dallas-- tonight, after being there all weekend. Lots of fun, bought almost the complete set of the FMA pins. Very cute.
Anyways, the reason I'm posting this is because I got to meet two of the VA's for FMA: Vic Mignogna, who I'm sure everybody knows will be doing Ed, and Mike McFarland, who will be doing Havoc's voice.
Here's a couple pictures of the two sitting together at a panel; Vic's on the right, Mike's on the left: 1 2
They both seemed very nice; I can't say much of what I think of their voice acting itself since I'm not much of a fan of dubs, except that I rather liked Vic's voice as Gawl in Generator Gawl. One of the few dubs I don't mind. A friend who was in line for autographs a little bit behind me asked Vic to do his Ed voice, but all she could say about it was that 'it seemed nice,' which doesn't help much. He did mention something about how he had wanted to make Ed's voice higher, but the Japanese side of the pond-- who have apparently taken a great deal of interest in the choice of VA's for the dub-- told him they didn't want it that high.
Another thing he mentioned is that he's actually a really big fan of FMA-- he said it's the first show he's worked on that he's actually watched all the way through before hand, and researched a lot about. Mike also seemed to really like the show. That's pretty reassuring to me, at least-- hopefully they'll take extra care to make it really good.
Anyways, that's about all I have to say-- except that they're now selling sets of WINRY TOOLS-- yes, little tools that are supposedly like the ones Winry uses. This disturbs me.
Oh! and I also have a really cool towel
now, with Havoc, Roy and Hughes. *huggles it*
*EDIT* Forgot to post the FMA cosplayer pictures. Not many of them, just Ed & WInry
, and a different Winry
. There were lots of people in the military outfits this year though, and several Ed's that I didn't get pictures of.
