that's only on tv though. the DVDs are fine, i have to agree the english voice actors do suck just a bit, though. But that's with any anime. the american version is ALWAYS butchered. i wouldn't know about DBZ. that i absolutel REFUSE to watch.

i havent read all of the posts but the english dialogue is nice.....if only they use the japanese actors' voice with the english dialogue. thats my opinion though.


Do you realise how LONG that would take to get the actors to become fluent in english AND without any accent?

...in that old Yu Yu hakusho movie poltergist report at least three of the english actors are the original japanese actors. ...the accent... actually is a pretty nice touch.

Do you think before you post?

I was listing the voice actors for YYH b/c what was listed on wikipedia was conflicting with Petalchaser's previous post in this thread.

I think I'm not so keen on the American voice actors because they make them all sound so....adult. Ed's Japanese and American voice are very different in pitch and character, and I'm afraid to say Paku sounds more like a 15 years old (small for his age) boy then Vic.

Actually Ed's voice in japanese sounds more adult to me, but I can understand Al's voice being too different.Funimation tried.

Ok, I'm just curious... how do you people who hate Nina's VA feel about Winry's? Me, I'm ambivalent. Sometimes I think she does quite a good job, especially for serious parts, but then when she 'squeals' my ears start hurting, and I get a headache... and how is the Japanese VA?



I did like winry's voice, I thought it was funny when she squealed lol. I do know a few people who would agree with you and say they really find her annoying though.

Me though, and don't think i'm horrible for this (my friends think i'm horrible Lol) i find that Al's voice can be extremely irritating. Don't get me wrong i love Al, he's one of my fave characters, but seriously in the english version, sometimes when he's serious it bugs me. i don't know why i just don't like it.

I think it could be cuz the kid who voice acts as him, bugs me alot too. When i was watching the comentary, everytime he talk i just had the biggest urge to slap him. i don't want to be rude, but some people just bug me like that, for no specific reason. Lol srry

ps. i didn't mind Nina's voice, since i really didn't see her as a character that was very important to the story, i didn't really pay attention to how she sounded.

Because if you try to make a new one that is slightly similiar to a topic that already exists no matter how many pages back, they will direct your attention to it. The people on this forum must like to recycle. So you might as well post all opinions regading anything in an already made topic...in its according topic.

You guys have to watch the Japanese version of the episodes first... the voice actors are all so great. I didn't even know that Barry was that woman in the japanese version, but in the English version it was SO obvious.


Well of course it's obvious. You had already seen the Japanese version, so you already knew that Barry was that women.
As for me, I've only seen the English version, and I had no idea that Barry was that woman. How was I supposed to know Barry was a cross-dresser? We'd never seen his character or heard about him before that episode.

I haven't seen that episode in a while so I don't remember that well, but I do remember that I knew something was wrong with that "woman."

I don't think the voices really have anything to do with figuring out who the "woman" really is. There is sufficient evidence in the dialogue previous to this point to suggest the woman is the serial killer. I mean, you have Ed talking about the possiblity of a truck being used to hide bodies immediately followed by the appearance of this random lady and her invitation for Winry to step inside her refrigerated truck. Tone of voice and choice of actors aside, I think the conclusion the writers are pointing the audience toward is pretty obvious. But I digress.

Since this topic has been reopened, I thought I'd post my two cents. I have just finished the series for the third time (yes, I'm obsessed). The first two were the dub, and the final viewing was in the original language. Honestly, I cannot understand why people dislike the dub. None of the voices were cringe inducing, and I found the vast majority of the acting to be of a superior quality. The claim that the dub lacks emotion just simply isn't true - it is definitely more subtle, but it's there if you listen. Since I understand only a meager bit of the Japanese language and cannot speak it, I'm sure you all will take what I say next with a grain of salt. However, I find the original language track to be a bit over-acted. Not to say that FMA doesn't have intentionally goofy moments, but the English track seems to have a bit more restraint. I also think the word choice in the English version is superior in that it corrects some outright mistakes which exist in the Japanese version.
