The effect they used on Envy's voice makes me worried about how they're gonna do Pride's voice in later episodes. Judging by his scene with Wrath a couple episodes ago, it seems like the dub is replacing all the multiple voice effects with an echo filter. Annoying.

But I'm surprised no one has mentioned Maxey! I thought she nailed that part at the end with Al's body. Not a lot to say, don't have to scream and yell and flail around, but they're powerful lines and you've gotta give them something. Rie Kugimiya did a wonderful job in the Japanese. Maxey did great too!

Yes! The lines were simple, and almost gentle sounding, but they were so powerful they brought a tear to my eye! ohmy.gif

This is one of my fav episodes for that reason - it's an emotional powerhouse! Vic did an awesome job showing that emotion in his voice, so even if you're not a fan it was still was a job well done. (I'm a fan though!) There's also not a lot of fans here for Envy's VA, which always surprises me because usually me and my friend are raving about her monster voice!

I thought it was pretty insane in the beginning with Edward fighting Envy and all those scary souls popping out and talking to him. Let's just say in my mindset at the time it was a pretty insane thing to see, but amazingly awesome.

This is one of my favorite episodes and I thought the dub was handled very well. I likes Ed's line "Look at at me!", it kind of makes Ed sound like he wants Al to make sure to hear his promise before he disappears again. I also noticed that this episode had a TV MA rating which is kind of a head scratcher for me. Maybe the moaning heads and Ling cutting open those heads contibuted to the rating.

I didn't hear a difference in Envy's voice. I assumed the echo was just because they were in Gluttony's stomach. Somehow I was expecting to suddenly like Envy's voice this episode. Meh.

Father's voice continues to be more exciting and mysterious than the Japanese VA. I especially enjoyed him in the lab room in Bradley's past and his line, which was something like, "Are you the one who will become my wrath?"

I think the real performance here though took place in the Gate scene, not by Vic Mignogna (I thought the "Wait for me!" echo was just weird) but by Maxey Whitehead. I felt emotion in her few lines in that scene that weren't there in the Japanese version. In episode 2, I was unsure of her doing Alphonse out of the armor but now I think she can pull it off.

This, so this. I have come to really love Whitehead's Alphonse. I sometimes forget it isn't Aaron Dismuke. It's just Alphonse to me.

I think Maxey is better than Aaron, to be honest.

It was fantastic. I'm still preferential to Aaron so its hard for me to get into Maxey still. I didn't like what they did with Envy though. I'm amazed at how different the show has become from the original anime, and its so weird seeing how its playing out.

Anyway, when's the next episode? I didn't see anything last night, same goes for DBZ Kai. Can anyone fill me in? Thanks!

@nickx Adult Swim put FMA:B on hiatus. You're probably not going to get any new episodes in the dub for a pretty decent amount of time.

Well, as for the Maxey v. Aaron debate goes, both are fantastic, but I'm sticking with Aaron as the better Al. The deciding factor may seem stupid to some of you, but, well, it was my deciding factor. When Maxey screams and does her wails every now and then as Al, it's just a little too high pitched for me (which is a polite way of saying Alphonse sounds like a total girl). But still, Maxey does a terrific Al, and like penguintruth said, I forget the Al we're now seeing isn't Aaron but Maxey every now and then since they're voice acting for Al is almost identical.

And Vic... he was alright. That "Look at me!" line was alright, but he didn't really get anything out of me, emotion-wise. :/ Envy's echo kind of made me angry. Didn't like that at all. Still loving Ling as always.

I find it funny how I used to vastly prefer Vic, but seriously, Romi is so perfect for Ed. She really brings out that arrogant, almost brutish side of his personality.
