Voice Actors Posted  
Over at Anime News Network they have the names of some of the english voice actors posted. Al, Winry, and Armstrong, to be exact, are now posted with Ed. THE CATCH...2 of them are utter nobodies.

I so want Steve Blum to pop up somewhere in this show. Either as Roy or Greed, as his voice is smooth enough for either.

I am amused....

Christopher Sabat as Armstrong....that is just far too amusing. I wonder which voice he'll use...his Vegeta voice, his Piccolo voice, his Ayame voice (and so on)....

Hmm...the voice of Winry is new! Yes for new blood! And I adore Al and Eds voices already as I know the actors from other places...I am amused.

I just hope they do a good job...I worried about the voice of Al the most...the kids only like 10 years old....literally...
Kalika Maxwellkalikamaxwell on September 5th, 2004 01:43 pm (UTC)
Mmm... *Al obsessed* On the bad side, can't be pervy with the kid. On the good side, can bring him candy! Ed will have to provide the hugs.

I kind of like Sabat. He embarassed me, then wrote on my poster I was hot. ^^; He better do good on Armstrong, which I fangirl for no logical reason...

Haha. ^__^;

2 of them are utter nobodies.

Could be good (new talent, not weighed down with dumb assumptions of cartoon acting) or bad (no experience.) Guess we'll find out. And by 'we' I mean 'those of you suckers that are morbidly curious enough to watch the dub.'

I saw the dub of the first episode at Otakon, but...I've mostly forgotten what it was like ^^; I enjoyed it, though. I twitched at Ed's voice at first, but got used to it within a few minutes. I think they used the same VAs--who didn't bother to change the tones of their voice?--for older!EdnAl and younger!EdnAl. That was my only complaint.

Aaa, but I could be wrong on all this, and it might not have been the final version. I have good hopes for the dub, though.

Rah Rah!!! I HATED ED'S VOICEEEEEEE X_X
Sarah: grrrr...gundamnook on September 5th, 2004 02:02 pm (UTC)
Ack... Chris Sabat is doing Armstrong? I'm sorry guys, but I can't stand his voice. I know he's the narrator in the trailer on Funi's site, but I could never stand Piccolo's voice after Funi took over. I was hoping they'd get someone better.

But ok, this is me jumping the gun. I'll have to wait until AS airs episode 14 (or 15, can't remember which episode Armstrong speaks for the first time) to make a judgment.
Jencalophi on September 5th, 2004 02:14 pm (UTC)
I'm gonna check out his (and the guy who plays Al) characters in Fruits Basket as soon as the boxset comes in. Then we'll see how they handle characters that are practically the opposite of the ones in FMA. ^_^

Me and a friend have a running joke about Roy being cast with a British accent and Hughes being cast with a Jamaican accent XD I don't remember how that idea spawned though. Probably from the feeling that everyone will have a horrible or ridiculous dubbed voice ^^; Therefore, although I'm not a fan of dub versions, I'm very curious about how everyone will sound when speaking English.

HUGHES WITH A JAMAICAN ACCENT WOULD MAKE MAH DEY!! O.o!

Actually, I'd laugh for a bit at all the faults they did and the lack of patois ('Irie', 'dey', 'yuh' etc.).

<---Is Jamaican XDDD

... there was nudity in FMA? What the hell are they talking about? You see Armstrong and Ed without shirts. That's it.

Oh there's nudity in recent eps.

Ooooh so the kid who does Al's voice also played young Akito in Fruits Basket? Neat! At least I know what to expect with Al's voice XD

I think it's amusing Armstrong is voiced by Vegeta's voice actor, I've only heard him in his DBZ roles and I don't watch DBZ all that much...Oh man he plays Ayame Sohma from Fruits Basket too? *Is learning a lot here* Now that IS amusing X3

Well I'm looking forward to the dub (*Will have to get it on DVD when it comes out as England is useless for showing decent anime on TV*) I'm sure I'll get used to the English VA's after a while, at least with the dub I won't have to read everything they're saying XD;;

Yeah! Now that's the way to think! Positively!
hork13bajir5 on September 5th, 2004 03:35 pm (UTC)
I didn't like Ed's voice actor.
I heard that he wanted to make his voice higher, like Paku's, but FUNi smited him and said "BAD!! Do what WE want. >O"

But, he does watch the fansubs. ^^ Yeys!
Al's dub voice annoys me. He can't act. x.x;

And I'm pissed that they gave Rose a VA that makes her sound 30, since she comes back in later episodes.

I'm not fan of dubs, but I'm always willing to give them a chance. But once I saw the first episode and cringed through all of it... -_- Didn't like it one bit. Ed's voice is far too deep, but at least has emotion. In contrast, Al's voice sounds appropriate but he sounds as if he were just reading lines off a script. It just did not impress me one bit.

I have no opinions on the cast since I won't be getting a channel that gets it, but I would appreciate the Winry VA stepping OFF the name, kthx. *deep distrust of wrench-weilding females*

I heard somewhere that Ed's voice is the one in the preview? Which would make him sound like a nine year-old hick throughout the course of the series? I hope I was just listening to faulty sources.

That was Al. And the VA got changed anyway.

ahh well...if all else fails, we could always watch the fansubs ^_^

The only concern I have (if you can call it that) is how they're gonna have Al call Ed...I mean, it's cute when Al goes "Nii-san!"...but to keep calling Ed "Brother!"...would just be annoying and weird...

::whack:: get the DVDs! I know you like dubs like I do anyways. MWAHAHAHAHA. We have to hang out during Christmas break (you're coming back, right?) or something and spazz and/or boo at the TV when it's on. XD

As for the "Nii-san" thing, I've heard that they're just going to have Al address Ed as "Edward" which is a good call.

As for me, I'm really hyped up about it because yeah, I like dubs. Especially when it's late at night and I'm not wanting to disect subs and just want to listen. =3

Chris as Armstrong? XD I can't wait to hear him (Maybe we'll be treated to a new kind of voice from him[Chris]?...I was hoping for a prideful royal-sounding voice with a touch of geniune british to it.)

Sabat was at MAX04 teehee...that's where I remember hearing about him from.

Hmm.

I had an idea that spawned from some IRC convo at Sonchou's room about the dub with members there and it involved possible kinds of voices for the characters. (This was in like, May)

For Hughes, I suggested an Irish-sounding voice ('Oy! Lookit meh littel gurl! Ain't she a beaut?!' or I think I said 'Have yeh seen m'little daught'r yet? Lookat 'er ain't she cute!?')....but then I realized most dubbing companies in english that try voice actors to do foreign-like accents screw up so bad. I mean, french voice actors and actresses can do an englishman speaking french with a genuine accent and yet when I hear the frenchman-speaking-english accent, I feel like breaking my TV and going mad. >_>;
