So happy that Funimation finally released the dub cast!! And it's not to shabby either.

Very glad that they kept most of the original VA's (especially Vic), but I'm not very happy that Aaron got replaced as Al (with a woman). I know that a woman does Al's voice in the Japanese version (and Rie-sama does a fantastic job!!), but American dubs with women doing voices for young boys never sound good to me. I'm hoping that Maxey does at least a decent job.
But I AM happy that they are still keeping Aaron for another role! I have to disagree that he will voice Ling. I don't think he's right for the part. And Ling isn't a "big role", at least in my opinion. I'm thinking that the "big role" is Pride. Pride has two voices in Brotherood. Selim's and the Homonculus voice. Aaron could do the latter.

Does anyone have a guess at when the dub is going to be released (either on TV or DVD)?

Ling is in it waaaaaaaaaaaaaaay more than Pride, if ling isnt a 'big role' pride certaintly isnt, particually since brotherhood is even cutting some of the precious pride scenes so far, im still sticking with Ling, personally, particually as the character wasn't specified and that to me hints at a manga only character and yesh i know manga and anime pride are different but selim was still in anime 1, also Al is older than Selim, so if aarons too old to play Al he's certaintly too old to play selim other guesses, possibly envy? or is he coming back with the same VA? Meh Ling seems the most likely to me

Also in the clip in which i was listenin to Maxy i was surprised she was a woman, she sounded like a boy to me, woman are perfectly good VAs for young boys, much better than a ridculously deep guy doing it ¬_¬ she won't be the first english VA to do a guy and hopefully not the last (bad example since its not anime, nor a dub, but bart simpson is voiced by a woman and I think he sounds great)

It was allways obvious Vic would come back as Ed and Caitlin as Winry, although imo I hate Caitlin's winry, to me its pretty cringy

Exactly, Pride is like the girl in the Exorcist; one ‘good’ voice and one ‘demonic voice’ for his homunculi form. Aaron isn’t old enough for the voice change to be a big throw-off. As for Ling, I agree that the role just doesn’t suit him.

Finally! biggrin.gif

The only thing that irks me is Colleen Clickenbeard....maybe because after watching brotherhood and hearing her more feminine voice from her voice actress and then watching an episode from the first series threw me off...

And I listened to that Maxey Whitehead clip - I'm liking her! biggrin.gif And as for Aaron's role....I watched the OVA dub just to hear his voice, and IMO I don't think he would ever do Pride. I'm thinking Ling, but just IMO.

So, if the DVD is coming Spring 2010, when are they going to air the episodes on Adult Swim or wherever? My brother's been getting anxious for this (he doesn't read the manga and he loved the first series).

^ I was thinking the same about Riza's voice too, but I'm glad her VA is staying the same in a way... I was never fond of the really girly Japanese VA because Riza just isn't like that, to me anyway. Maybe I was just too used to her English VA, who knows.

Wow, I have to say, I'm happy as a clam right now. As for the voice actors, I'm pretty easily pleased. I always though Vic was good as Ed, but I do admit that Romi was better. But onto the series, I wonder when the episodes will be released...?
Do you think that Adult Swim is gonna buy the new season, or will we have to buy the DVDs? (I hope not! I'd have to spend, like, 60 bucks to see it!)

Sorry, I have to disagree and say that Ling has a VERY BIG role in FMA. He definitely moves the plot along and helps the other main characters. At the very least, Ling has a bigger role than Pride. Most of the time he appears as Selim anyway, and he doesn't use his Homunculus voice that often.

I've read on the ANN forums that the DVDs come out in the spring, but don't hold me to it.

I wonder if they'll be releasing it in singles, or in "parts".

To those of you who are saying that Aaron isn't right for Ling's part, is it because you're thinking of how his voice used to sound? I mean keep in mind, he's a lot older now and his voice is much deeper than it used to be, hence why he's not doing Al's part now. I, on the other hand, feel Aaron does have the potential to play Ling. As for Pride/Selim. Well, Selim is younger than Alphonse so that's not feasibly possible for Aaron and as for how his voice will sound as Pride? We really don't know yet...it could still have that young yet creepy sound to it like the Japanese version's does. Point I'm trying to make is that I can see Aaron voicing Ling more than I can Selim/Pride.

Yeah, I'm disappointed she's back. I never liked her as Riza. I was looking forward to hearing someone else...hopefully Colleen will change it up a little! Otherwise I'm glad the original cast will be back. I generally had no issue with them...especially Lust, I thought Laura Bailey did a great job with her!

Egh, I never really got into the dub. I don't generally do dubs for the most part.


But if there's one voice that really bugged me, it was Envy's. His voice in Brotherhood is better IMO, he sounds younger and it fits his character's lighter nature in this show. But I don't like his dub voice from the last show in general because he sounds like an old lady. So that's even less fitting in this show. :/

Hmm.... Well, I have no objection to the new (well, not really) cast. Personally, I'm happy that Vic and Travis will be back because I liked them in the first series! Al's new voice doesn't bother me at all.... I think that it'll sound really cool with the empty-armor effect, although I'll miss Aaron's Al a little.... I'm glad he'll be back, but the only role I think he could be is Ling. And I'm not sure if Ling really suits him. I don't think that he'll be Pride, but you never know.

I'm a little bit iffy about Colleen as Riza again. I didn't mind her the first time around, but being the crazy Royai fan that I am I'm already thinking ahead to how she might pull off the scene with Lust in episode 19. There's nothing in the first anime that really compares to that moment, not even the moment in the last episode on the front steps of the Fuhrer's mansion in my opinion...... Well, we'll have to see about that too. Also, I'm not really looking forward to Envy having the same voice. I was never really a fan of his voice in the first series. Plus, it's one of the reasons that made me almost positive that he was a girl. Oh well. I can deal.

ok, I know what I said, but I know the Ling is a big role. I didn't mean to say that he wasn't. but his character is not something that I think Aaron would do. If he is cast as Ling, fine. I'll be happy, because Aaron is a good VA. What I said is my opinion. Remember that who ever is cast as ling will have to voice the new Greed. Remember that Ling becomes Greed.
I'll be happy whoever he voices because I'm happy that they want to keep him for this anime.

That's great that they got most of the cast back, and I'm taking everyone's word that the new VA for Al is going to be able to pull it off!

The only thing I'm uncertain about it just that some of the characters are so different in Brotherhood compared to the first anime that I don't even see them as the same people, and having the same VAs all around is inevitable, but slightly nerveracking because I am hoping with all my might that the cast won't play the characters the same in this dub as they did the last one. I don't know if they even know enough about the story to realize that their characters are like two different people.

(I am stoked about Vic, not going to lie XD)
