NOOOOO! why did they have to cast a woman as Al!! I hate it when the Japanese and/or the English cast women to play boys, especially if they are around the age that their voice should be becoming deeper. At least They kept Vic and Caitlin I am so excited about that with all of the Ed and Winry scenes!! Maybe Aaron will be Ling,but I not really sure about him as the role of Ling...

Woah, Maxey Whitehead is a woman? o_O I didn't know that, I just kind of assumed that it would be a guy...well that's interesting. I hope she does a good job as Al, because I'm sure people will be comparing her to Aaron.

What other kind of "big role" can there be? For now, I'm sticking with my prediction of Ling.

Yes, she is.
Too bad about Aaron having the voice change.. though I understand, and kind of expected a new VA for Al. Hope she will make a good Al. smile.gif

Oooh, thanks for finding that clip! She doesn't sound bad at all! I felt SO nervous when I heard a woman would be playing Alphonse (Aaron, why did you have to grow up? sad.gif ), but now I feel a little better. biggrin.gif

Eeeeeee!!! I can't WAIT for Vic and Caitlen to do all the EdWin scenes! wub.gif And it looks like Brotherhood has FINALLY kicked into gear (it only took, oh I dunno...19 FREAKIN' EPISODES to warm up and settle into the pace... >__>) so Vic's got some reeeaaally awesome material to work with. biggrin.gif *bounces excitedly*

Wendy Powell is returning as Envy? Ugh.

I hope they do a better job with this dub than the first one.

It dismays, but doesn't surprise me, that Vic Mignogna will continue to mess up Edward Elric. He's a terribly medicore VA and his Edward is painful to listen to. Same thing with Catlin Glass's earsplittingly bad Winry, Chris Patton's flat Greed, and Travis Willingham's half-hearted Roy Mustang.

I'm surprised, and glad, that they replaced Dameon Clarke as Scar. I can't say the same for Alphonse, because Aaron Dismuke was one of the few good voices in the original dub.

Hopefully Brina Pelencia doesn't play Nina as a brain-damaged girl this time. "Wittle bwig bwatha", indeed. (Children do not actually speak that way.)

Anyway, the DVDs will be bilingual, so I don't have to listen to the English dub, but it burns me up that people could like Vic as Ed. He's going to get even more popular now and be in more dubs to the point where I'll be unable to watch anything dubbed. Romi Paku is brilliant as Ed, and Vic will never be that good.

Wait, is Pride the Fuhrer's son? If so then Aaron is too old to play him.

Woohoo!! That's awesome! biggrin.gif And yay Vic!! I wonder if Caitlyn Glass will be back as Winry?

Awww, Penguin, I didn't think Wendy Powell did all that bad as Envy.

..oh please. It burns you up that people actually like Vic as Ed's voice actor? So now people can't have opinions because it pisses you off? I'm sorry but spare me. That's just ridiculous. Everybody's going to have their own opinions in regards to Vic or english voice acting in general. I've never seen anybody as negative as you are. What did you expect? A whole new voice cast? People would be raging. Maybe to you Vic will never be as god as Romi, but to others he IS just as good. I'm sorry but your comment was offensive towards those people who actually appreciate the english voice acting. Especially Vic.

And on that note, I'm quite excited to see the old cast back! I loved Caitlyn Glass's Winry, so that's even more exciting! biggrin.gif It's a shame we won't get Aaron back as Al, but it's also intriguing to know he'll be playing a major role. I actually DO hope it's Ling! biggrin.gif Anyway, thank you so much for sharing this information! It's very relieving to hear they're all coming back and exciting to know Aaron is still going to be in the anime! happy.gif

Awww, Penguin, I didn't think Wendy Powell did all that bad as Envy.


Well, I'm in the minority, probably, but I didn't like the dub overall. (In fact, I wrote a little something about it.)

I found Vic's Ed too dry and uneven, Dameon Clarke's Scar too generic, Catlin Glass's Winry annoying, Chris Patton's Greed flat, Wendy Powell's Envy misdirected (largely Mike McFarland's fault as ADR Director... he's not very good), and a lot of the script changes plain dumb. None of the principal players really captured the emotion of the original Japanese VAs, with the exception of Aaron Dismuke's Ed, Christine Auten's Izumi, and a few others.

That being said, they'd be pretty crazy to replace Vic as Ed, with the multitude of (tone deaf) fans. There'd be boycotts and riots. If Funimation wants to make money off of this show, they'll stick with Vic and I'll just watch the Japanese track. I've pretty much given up on getting a satisfactory FMA dub.

Chill, I'm not denying anyone their opinion, I just believe it'll add more irritation to me later when Vic's in every dub Funimation does. Every once in a while, I'd like to watch an anime in dubbed form without suffering through his voice.

Also, I already stated that I didn't really expect a whole new cast.

Yeah, if Aaron is too old to play Al, then there's no way he's going to be Pride, because he's around five or six years old.

About Vic, I do believe that he's a good voice actor but he never really fit Ed as well as Romi Paku does IMO.

Hmmm I think he will more likely be Ling but about the Pride theory Maby not Pride as Seliem but maby as his evil homunculus voice. Ya know how in Brotherhood hes got 2 different voices.

I never watched the dubbed series before and won't this series either, so whether I like them or not isn't of any importance. No true I didn't like their voices, but I'm not a big fan of dubs especially when their voices change so much from how I grew used to them listening.

I do feel however if the majority liked Vic et al then it is a good thing they have returned. It'll bring back fans who may have been unsure and it means the VA's are working with characters they know.
