What the HELL?  
Okay. I was on board for the Funimation train as far as FMA went, and then they went and left out stuff in my favorite episode. The fact that he did not say "mother" at the end when Ross hugged him, really bothered me. I'm very distressed and refuse to buy any more dvds.....

...you DO realize that the DVDs have the Japanese dialogue on them, anyway....

I know, but not everyone can afford to purchase the dvds...>_< It just bothered me.

Hm, and now that I actually got to see the episode, he *did* say something. He said "Mom? Is that you?" It was quiet, but definitely there.

Are you sure? I thought I heard it whispered but drowned out by the background noise. Or maybe I was imagining it in my mind though I've never seen the JApanese episode.

If you were imagining it, then I was too...

Except that he does whisper "Mom ..." It's just really quiet.
DigiFaithdigifaith on April 9th, 2005 09:41 pm (UTC)
He did. Vic asked in the chat if anyone had heard it, because he was afraid it was too quiet. But it was there.

I thought I heard Ed say: "Mother, you're back." I could have swore, I think the show is playing mind tricks. XD

He did say "Mom, you're back". My sound stopped working half way though and had to watch with captions. That's what it said. Now to get the sound back on line before the second airing.....

First off, it's ridiculous to get in a fit like this over one line.

Second, it was there, just really really quiet. Watch the rerun, maybe with captions on or something, if you don't believe me.

I apologize. I just want the integrity of the show to be conveyed correctly. I love this episode and there was more than one line they just happened to mess up. I consider this episode to be very pivotal, and find that line to be important. If it is drowned out, then how the heck are we supposed to know he said it? They messed up by drowning it out with the music, because you can hear it perfectly well in the japansese language track.

Yeah, I guess I can understand that, but... Okay, I'll shut up about it.

And, sorry, I wouldn't know if they really drowned it out horribly or not, 'cause my TV has a big echo thing kinda screws sound up a bit. I had to really listen closely to hear it. As someone else stated, in the chatroom Vic asked if we could hear it, and he seemed genuinely concerned. If they're at least worried about it, you know they didn't drown it out on purpose.

I just have someone here that hasnt really seen FMA before, so it bothered me she couldn't hear it very well. I just haven't got quite attached to Vic as his voice actor yet. I think it is harder for someone to adjust to the dub from the sub then the other way around.
Tashatasha_mac on April 10th, 2005 06:57 am (UTC)
Not to be uber nitpicky here, but if the sound is low, it's not the voice actor's fault, it's the sound engineer. The actor's the voice monkey, the engineers have the final say in if you can hear it or not.
eeyoregurl21eeyoregurl21 on April 12th, 2005 07:25 pm (UTC)
good point ^_^. So it isn't vics fault , but still having to do with Funi.
Serenitydark_fire18 on April 9th, 2005 09:48 pm (UTC)
I'm going to rewatch the episode at 2:30 in the morning. XD

God what bitchy fangirls...jsut enjoy the damn thing....>_> So it's in there or not..Some herd it some didn't....get over it...it's just a show..I got over it..in what like 10 minutes...

I heard it too.

The purchase of the licensed material is what will keep anime and anime merchandise flowing into the country. I know that maybe you can't afford it now but you might be able to in the future and it will be nice to be able to find it then. =)

It was there. I remember thinking "Huh, was this line in the fansub? I thought the line was just 'Mom'" My roomate said she heard it too.
If you have to check it you can either do it at 2:30 or wait til Thursday when they re-show their Saturday and Sunday stuff.
