So, Since I haven't been able to watch FMA:B, I went onto FUNimation to check it
out, and I noticed there was a new section for trailers. So, I thought "Ok, this must
be for the Blu-ray."
Didn't realize it was english though.
And guess who they got for Edward.
I never liked his voice that much for Ed in the english. (I had to endure his voice
in the PS2 games...)
I guess it's because I'm so used to how he sounds in Japanese, something about it is
Or, maybe it's because a man in his late 40's is voicing a 15 year old boy.
Well, I've seen worse. *Looks at the english voice actor of Naruto, who is an old
granny voicing a 12 year old. Talk about awkward.*
Another thing that shocks me is, that in his resume, he has voiced different people
in, like 40 other anime's. (Air Gear, D-Gray.Man, Darker then Black, Bleach,
Claymore, D.N. Angel, and Code Geass just to name a couple of the ones which stand
out to me.)
It also says that it's a "new Anime, New Story."
THAT WAS THE ORIGINAL STORY THE WHOLE TIME YOU STUPID DING-BATS.
*Punch to the face*
And, to top it off, I only have one way to watch Blu-ray if I were to get it.
That'd be on my PS3.
At first, it may not sound like a huge issue.
It's in the middle of our living room.
Unless I get another Blu-Ray for my room, I can't watch it without everyone in my
family suffering bad voice acting. (Oh yeah, I only heard Alphonse's voice once in
the whole trailer,
it sounds like his old english voice actor, Aaron Dismuke.
Again. My bad, it's a new voice actor. His name is Maxey Whitehead. You might
recognize him as Antonio from Romeo x Juliet.) Although, Aaron Dismuke isn't being
left out. He's coming as...LING?! Alphonse = Ling?! WTF?!?! *brain dies* (Although,
that's an unreliable source, so I don't think there's a high chance of it, but Aaron
IS coming back sometime in the series...)
I mean, this is what they did in Japan too, so really, I shouldn't be surprised, but
I was actually hoping that Romi Park would come back to do Ed, because I
actually LIKE her voice as Ed. (Yes, The japanese voice actor is a girl. Japan does
that a lot, and personally, I couldn't be happier with the way they sound most of the
Why, Vic? WHYYYYYYYY?!
Sorry, my rant probably a bit repetitive, but...Eh. I don't really care right now.
Also, sorry to anyone who LIKES his voice as Ed. (as strange as that sounds to me.)
This is just my own personal opinion. (Remember, most of you are Americans, and have
Freedom of Speech. We in Canada have that too.)
