AnimeFest  
Just got back from AnimeFest-- a relatively small con in Dallas-- tonight, after being there all weekend. Lots of fun, bought almost the complete set of the FMA pins. Very cute.

Anyways, the reason I'm posting this is because I got to meet two of the VA's for FMA: Vic Mignogna, who I'm sure everybody knows will be doing Ed, and Mike McFarland, who will be doing Havoc's voice.
Here's a couple pictures of the two sitting together at a panel; Vic's on the right, Mike's on the left: 1 2

They both seemed very nice; I can't say much of what I think of their voice acting itself since I'm not much of a fan of dubs, except that I rather liked Vic's voice as Gawl in Generator Gawl. One of the few dubs I don't mind. A friend who was in line for autographs a little bit behind me asked Vic to do his Ed voice, but all she could say about it was that 'it seemed nice,' which doesn't help much. He did mention something about how he had wanted to make Ed's voice higher, but the Japanese side of the pond-- who have apparently taken a great deal of interest in the choice of VA's for the dub-- told him they didn't want it that high.

Another thing he mentioned is that he's actually a really big fan of FMA-- he said it's the first show he's worked on that he's actually watched all the way through before hand, and researched a lot about. Mike also seemed to really like the show. That's pretty reassuring to me, at least-- hopefully they'll take extra care to make it really good.

Anyways, that's about all I have to say-- except that they're now selling sets of WINRY TOOLS-- yes, little tools that are supposedly like the ones Winry uses. This disturbs me.

Oh! and I also have a really cool towel now, with Havoc, Roy and Hughes. *huggles it*

*EDIT* Forgot to post the FMA cosplayer pictures. Not many of them, just Ed & WInry, and a different Winry. There were lots of people in the military outfits this year though, and several Ed's that I didn't get pictures of.

FUNimation VA's
I haven't met Vic yet, but I have known Mike for around 4 years now and he is also one of the two directors for FMA at FUNimation. I have heard Vic's recordings and they are at little lower in the voice than the Japanese actor but with all the same intensity, if not more. Mike is great too, he was the voice of Buu in DBZ and others that you might recognize. I play Mustang for FMA and its really only my second part at FUNimation, but one thing I have noticed is that from directors to actors, the cast and crew of FMA is heavy into the anime - more so than any other anime property that I have seen come through FUNimation. I think American audiences will be happy and cant wait for November for its release. Glad to see your interest in it already.

*grin* I just got back from AnimeFEST myself. vikki got the last of those Havoc/Roy/Hughes towels. And yes, I was rooming with vikki. So happy. The Ed and Winry cosplayers you have is vikki as Winry and dolfyn as Ed. My roommates for the con. *huggles Vikki and Sarah* Don't imagine you have a picture of Winry and a Songstress Yuna kissing... Vikki and I had way too much fun with that pose.
Calessandriana on September 6th, 2004 12:13 pm (UTC)
Cool! Wasn't it fun? The only cons I'd ever been to before were the really gigantic ones-- AnimeExpo and ComicCon in Cali-- though I've been going to those for four years, now. So it was but fun and educational to go to one of the smaller cons. And also nice because, like I said, I got to meet the VA's in person. I got hugged by Vic Mignogna~! And I have a picture of it~~! *heart*

The towels were very cool. I was tempted by the other two, but the coloring on the Elric-kyoudai one was awful, and the red one with the symbol was too plain... but the Havoc/Roy/Hughes one was juuuust right! :D

My compliments on the costumes. :D I'm always too lazy to make one myself, but it's fun seeing other people's creativity.
Nope, I'm afraid I don't have a pic of that-- I was probably the first person to take y'all's picture on Friday afternoon, I think? Though I did see y'all around a lot later.
Anyways, it's good to know who to credit those pics to. :)

Actually, it was only me and two other people in the military outfits that I am aware of. ;o

I missed that towel though somehow :O
Calessandriana on September 6th, 2004 12:58 pm (UTC)
Really? I kept getting the impression that there were lots; maybe I just kept running into the same people...?
Anyways, great costumes! Wish I could have gotten pictures...

The towels were hanging on the wall next to the booth to the right as you walked into the dealer's room. Easy to miss, unfortunately.

's weird, it works just fine for me... but anyways, I uploaded it here. I tried to take a picture of them all, but unfortunately this was the best picture I could get without fiddling with the settings of my camera a lot more than I know how to, yet. ^^;;; It sucks badly, I know, but maybe you can get an idea?
