The English Dub...  

Just some random screencaps + LOLcaps, as well as my humble opinion on the English dub. Let me know your opinion too!


Ah.... it's been a while since we've all viewed the first episdoe of Brotherhood, eh? So let's review...

It was a indroducing-the-almighty-plot episode.

Moving on the the dub...

First of all, why the hell did they cut up the opening and ending? It made me sad. ;_;

Second of all, what was with the random cut scenes? Was the episode too long or something?

They totally cut the awesome 4 seconds where Ed and Al were surfing down the ice mountain!

  <---- For those who don't remember

Third of all, the actual dub. Travis (Roy) sounded as sexy as ever. I love Chris Sabet (Armstrong). Vic was very professional sounding, giving Ed a very fitting voice. And whoever voices Kimblee I now love. Issac's voice was a tad... off, but it was still good. Riza's voice sounds pretty good too.

EDIT: Would like to add, Lust's voice is still sexy.

But... why the hell does Al sound like a 9-year-old girl? ;_;

It's terrible... like all the producers ever see Al as is this 10-year-old little boy. BUT GODDAMMIT HE'S 14. HE'S MATURED. GAH.

And my reason for thinking they have all thier ages for the characters mixed up is not just ramblings on my part. I recently went to Ohayocon, and Aaron Dismuke (old voice of Al) said that the producer said he was going to let him do Ling, but "he's like 25". Seriously? Ling is 15! Aaron still says he doesn't know who he's going to voice in Brotherhood (and apparently he *is* getting a role). Personally, I think he should be young Hohenheim. It could fit.

On to the caps! (that I took back in April when the first episode was aired in Japan and never got around to posting... but now seems like the perfect time, doesn't it?)



The way Ed's expressions change so quickly never fails to amuse me. xD



(This was in the time span of about 2 seconds)




Seriously, does it hurt to change facial expressions that fast?




I would also like to take this time to point out that Al was more useful in the first episode of Brotherhood than he was in the entire first anime. Just throwing it out there. :|




LOL. BUT NO NO. SERIOUSLY. Roy's face is funny, but look at the dude behind him! xD


And now presenting.... the LOLcaps. Enjoy.










(Apoligies to those who despise Elricest xD)




(I am so original)



(I honestly don't know where this came from xD)



That's all folks! Comment and let me know what you thought of the dub too! (And the caps! xD)

Just to let you know, your LJ cut isn't working properly. Can you please fix it? ^^;

It's fixed now.

Just FYI, the lj-cut doesn't appear to be working. My f-list was sad.

HEE to your caps.

I was also disappointed with the cut opening and closing. Probably needed to get in more commercials. (They didn't cut Winry, that was nice.)

Riza's new voice sounds pretty good too.

I don't think that was a new voice for Riza, wasn't that Colleen Clinkenbeard in the credits? She was the original Riza.

yes, it is the same VA.. Colleen Clinkenbeard is doing Hawkeye in both versions of FMA.

seaweed_fma: Hughes- O Rly?seaweed_fma on February 15th, 2010 03:44 am (UTC)
for the record, Roy (Travis Willingham), Ed (Vic Mignogna), Armstrong (Chris Sabat), Hughes (Sonny Strait), Kimbley (Eric Vale), and Hawkeye (Colleen Clinkenbeard), as well as Bradley (Ed Blaylock), Lust (Laura Bailey) and Gluttony (Chris Cason) were all the original voices.

The ones that were different were Gracia and Elysia Hughes, and of course Al. Al is voiced by a female, which is why his voice sounds the way it does.



(and I feel so terribly nerdy for not having to look up any of those names.. Sigh. I am such a dork.)

That was the same guy doing Hughes? He sounded so -- not good. :-(

hopefully when they release the dvds they are uncut. were the old episodes cut at all before they appeared on dvd?
TayloWolf: Fandom: MUSTANGtaylowolf on February 15th, 2010 04:01 am (UTC)
On Funi's twitter today, it was said that the OP/ED were cut by Adult Swim and will still be full on the DVDs. I'm guessing (and reeeeally hoping) that'll hold true to scenes that were cut, too. :)

Al's voice... I first heard it and I LITERALLY was screaming. it was AWFUL. he was so... timid! it made him seem like such a worthless, cowardly character, only following his brother around. imagine if that was his voice in the FIRST anime! *cowers*

I hated that, the cuts, and Isaac and Elysia's voices. they didn't seem to fit at all. I'll stick with the subs and the voice actors that sound believable, thanks.

(jizz in my pants lol)
Jordanna Morgan: FMA Alchemistjordannamorgan on February 15th, 2010 04:56 am (UTC)
So glad I'm not the only person who hated Al's voice. I can only speak as a newcomer (whose interest is purely in English dubs--not subtitles), but I agree with your comments on it. IMHO, Aaron Dismuke gave Al a beautiful inner strength and maturity, but that wasn't there at all with that little-girl voice.

This post made me really happy. XD I like you. YOU WIN AT CAPTIONING.

(I didn't watch the dub because I am the lamest person on the planet and don't have cable tv or real internet. So I couldn't tell you.)

I was so sad that the opening/ending were cut. English dub fails when it comes to timing. I was also distressed over Al's voice. BUT you're caps are awesome. I love Ed's facial expressions lol
Hewene: cartoon edsayhello on February 15th, 2010 04:15 am (UTC)
Cutting the opening was just criminal. Period.

So true. ;_;

My broadcast had huge black screens several times while the sound kept going. I was not happy, especially since I had to stay up three hours longer than I'd expected to even see it. Adult Swim is not on my A-list right now.
lalikaalalikaa on February 15th, 2010 06:02 am (UTC)
It's never been on mine, so no worries. xD
M. Owen: sillytimesmindy_mousie on February 15th, 2010 04:33 am (UTC)
I enjoyed it lots!
Somebody else has probably mentioned this but shows get cut for time restrictions on television. Sucks but blame the billion ads they gotta air. X_X

I figured as much... *le sigh*

Arthur: Al - ^D^cxrdevil on February 15th, 2010 04:38 am (UTC)
I thought Kimblee's new voice was the old Greed, Chris Patton - lol! Guess I'm wrong. Hughes and Riza did sound really different even though they're the same, though.

And AL omg he is ADORABLE I am going to put faith in Funi for now, since it's only the first episode, and hope that they catch onto his maturity gracefully so that he can go from being pure "adorable nine year old girl" to "sweet 14 year old boy trapped in a metal body with superpowers who loves cats and is kickass at elric-fu"
seaweed_fma: Greedseaweed_fma on February 15th, 2010 04:58 am (UTC)
LOL it was definitely Eric Vale, who did the voice originally. As far as I know, Chris Patton should be coming back to voice the first Greed, and if I have to guess, he will probably be the Greed side of Greedling as well. But that remains to be seen.
