I don't even know why I care.  
I'm watching the English dub which I hate with the passion of a thousand sharp pointy things and I got a question: is Envy supposed to be female or male? In the original and best Envy's seiyuu is a dude, but in this one, Envy's a chick. What's the dealio?

Edit: LOLS I got pwned. Envy's Japanese seiyuu is, in fact, female. SO SORRY.
And to show my complete ignorance, I've even seen the entire series. Have your way with me as you wish.

What the crap does that have to do with this post anyway :( And there's a movie, so no, it's not really the end, I suppose.

I always have and probably always will think of Envy as a male, but I've also seen it mentioned that he's more on the androgynous side.

Ed's voice is worse! I'm afraid of saying that out loud, lest someone spear me. I like Vic, just not as Ed. Like.. as Kougaiji.

..Er, no. Envy's Japanese seiyuu is a woman, too. But Envy is a male. Just like Ed's Japanese seiyuu is a woman.

according to some anonymous source (I belive Arakawa mentioned it) MANGA-Envy has no idea what his gender is, but ANIME-Envy... is quite sure.

...So Envy's like Dilandau...? D:

I shoulda put this in my last comment, but I didnt. My friend (who is an idiot) thought Envy was a chick (and the 2 of us had a huge argument about it too, it ended with me kicking him in the nuts, but thats not the point) ANYWAY he insisted (sp?) that Envy was a chick so I finally was all like "Fine, think what you want" and he even kept saying how Hot Envy was; then he finally found out that he was in fact a dude, and I laughed at him xD


Yes...that was so random and kinda lame...but I felt like saying it xD

you know, for someone who's so 'hard core subtitles' you totally got something wrong
Like moving
Envy's Jap Voice Actor is FEMALE. So yeah, the american va is also females.. it's not THAT bad.

...Envy is a guy in both. A guy ALWAYS AND FOREVER

and I LIKE the dub. It's very good compared to many dubs. And it sticks extrordinarily close to the original script, I admit, some of the EVAs are quite bad. But other than that...it's a good dub.

*is somewhat afraid to see what they'll to do with HohoPapa and Wrath however*

...I think that Envy's English VA was better voicing Mukuro from YYH. :x I think they need a more manly sounding VA for Envy, but that's just my opinion.
RW Grimmgrimm222001 on August 30th, 2005 01:21 pm (UTC)
It took me a little bit to get use to Envy's VA, cause it just sounded a lot more like a woman than I expected. I know his VAs a girl but I thought he'd sound a little more like a boy, lol. But now I like it, there's something about that voice that just...:3

Envy's Japanese voice actor is Yamaguchi Mayumi, who is most definitely female. FUNimation was trying to stick with the Japanese version and use a female as well.
Aubrey Myers: armigotchiarmaina on August 30th, 2005 05:51 am (UTC)
yeah, that's the impression I get as well
Honestly, I think the English voice sounds a little of either way.
I think that in the later eps the VA will get more into character, this isn't uncommon.. actually.
I think she'll start to sound a little more masculine, or at least genderless, further on in the series.
