I'll be blunt.
Ed's voice makes me happy in my pants.
Edit: "I got it, I got it!" XD
I dunno if I'm at liberty to say this cause I haven't actually seen the the premier yet. But I'm under the impression that alot of people were a bit upset with the placement of the opening with Ready Steady Go at the end. Whether on not they hacked up Melissa which does sound like a bloody awful crime to me... the fact is in the first episode the opening sequence was placed at the end even in the original wasn't it? I might be wrong but I'm pretty sure this was the case.
I invited Sabs, Dan, Dave and Emerald over for a little party to celebrate the premiere of FMA on Cartoon Network. We made cookies and pudding pie. Alex and his gal pal joined us as well. We watched Coupling while waiting for it to come on...
Cornello still rocks. He's got to be my favorite voice so far.
I winced at Ed's voice at the beginning. A 10 year old boy sounding like a grown man just is NOT a happy way to start out the series @_< The scream also made me wince. But after a while, Ed's voice grew on me. I still don't think it fits very well, but at least I don't hate it.
Speaking of hate... I thought Al's voice would be the one I'd get used to, but no... I really dislike his voice. I don't think the kid can do "serious" very well at all. And Rose sounds too old for her character.
Lust is the only one I'm still uncertain of. I don't think anyone else in our party liked her voice, but I thought it was okay... Particularly cause I couldn't for the life of me remember what Lust's Japanese voice sounded like. Ah well. I'm hoping to hear more of her soon.
While making fun of the voices, we were discussing what would be the worst they could do to the characters. The funniest one by far was Scar talking with a lisp. Ed would be rolling on the ground in laughter, and Scar would be like "thtop that! you're thuppothed to ph33r me, damnit!"

Hey, everyone, remember me? Well, I'm the same, except for one thing.
I'm the new mod 'round these parts. :D But I'm not posting to gloat.
From this post on, all posts subjects should include in the subject "BA", if you were a member before tonight, or have watched the fansubs.
If you've joint tonight, or past this pont, please include a "AS" in your subject line. This is a way to see if people read this post, and after it dissapears, the rules. I ask if a new member does not include "BA" or something spoilerish with "BA", please refer them to here or the many things I wrote up about this issue, and ask them to include it from this point on. If they respond harshly, please refer them to me. Thanks. :D
[If it's a non-spoil post, news, or art or such, include "BAS"]
I don't want there to be more wank then there should be, everyone should have a right to this fandom, whether BA or AS.
EDIT: If you are unsure of the "BA" or "AS", here's an excerpt from our new FAQ.
12. What do “BA” and “AS”stand for? I keep seeing them in posts!
Please refer to the communities’ “Open Letter” for more information. “BA” stands for “Before America”, referring to fans who have seen the series before it aired on Cartoon Network, and have seen the series. “AS” (American Screening/Adult Swim) fans are those who view Fullmetal Alchemist via Cartoon Network’s “Adult Swim”. “BAS” is a post that does not include any spoilers to both sides. This is to everyone’s convenience not for people to be spoiled.
Just a question, any help is appreciated.
Does anyone have, or can anyone record, any sound files from the dub? Here in Europe we haven't seen it (and most likely won't for a very long time, if ever), but I'm sure there are more people than just me who are interested in hearing the voices.
Anyways, I'm talking to my friend right now. She's been hearing about FMA (Envy in particular) from me for a long, long time, and she finally saw episode one last night. Then she asked me a question that I can't answer:
How popular was Envy pre-episode 25? I didn't get into the series until about episode 26 - 28, so I can't give her an actual answer.
I'm really, and I mean really, bored. I want to do an Hagaren-related quizz on Quizilla, but I don't have any idea... Anyone can help me find an idea?
I'll start off with the serious question first, which is also kinda fun. =D
Since FMA's aired on CN and we've all had fun seeing everyone's initial reaction, I want to ask to the older fans:
What were your first thoughts on this series based on the first episode? Any strange ideas you had about the characters (ie: thought Al was a robot)
Mine: The title made me think "oh, Full Metal Panic spinoff. I didn't like FMP. Boo. But it has "alchemist" in it. I'll give it a try." (SHOOT ME) The first time I saw it, I never got to even the title card because it was really late and the whole losing-limbs really creeped me out. I think I stopped around when Ed was chasing Al around in circles. My thoughts? Story about two sets of brothers in alternate worlds. Oh, and that Ed looked like something out of Gundam Wing. Then I just let the file sit on my computer for about two or three months. XD;
The only other thing I could really remember was that I was hooked at the end of the episode and thought [because of the Melissa footage] Roy et all were an evil terrorist organization and that Roy looked "too dorky to be a good leader of such a scary looking group".
What type of underpants do you want to see Roy and Havoc wear?
If you're wondering, I'm making a short comic for design class and decided to do a hagaren one that has Riza, Roy, and Jean on a deserted island and both guys are lounging around in their underwear (and then they try to eat Black Hayate but Riza shoots at them). I've decided I wanted Havoc to wear a loose undershirt but nothing beyond that. So you guys have fun trying to convince me to draw your idea.
