is it just me or is mustangs voice just a little bit off? and no i don't mean its cause its just because i'm used to the jp voice talent, i just personally feel that the way his english voice is done its a little cold and lifeless, i mean yes roy mustang is an asshole sometimes, but he's ALWAYS been a charasmatic, jovial asshole. at least thats how i've always felt. does anyone else thats seen at least most of the jp eps agree or am i just being a picky funimation hatin bastard (which in general i am but i'm honestly tryin to give FMA a chance, hell at least they did better with this than DBZ)

as a side not i also feel that winry and ed have too mature voices, though the al voice fits nicely, pinako aint bad either but i do still prefer the jp version but thats just me

Since I have not seen the jap verson, I can be Unbiased when I say that your right. It's just too cold. But, I have a feeling that it (Just like Al's voice) will grow on me.

It's a lot less off than most of the other voices, I'll say that much.

Winry and Rose must have the same VA... I noticed no difference between the two. At least she's appropriately catty-sounding for Winry...

I almost voted for "FMA came out in Japan?" because that was so funny. No offense to anyone who really thought that...

Yeah, even though I'm not a Roy fan, I do agree that Roy's voice sounded weird, but that's because its different from the Japanese voice actor (actress?). I thought Ed's voice was terrible, but I got used to it. *shrugs* I'm starting to really like the dub. The third episode almost made me cry. I don't know why. I saw that episode five billion times in Japanese, but when I saw in the Eng. dub... I don't know... There was something different...

Well anyway, don't despair. I know you Roy fans will love Roy even if his Eng voice sucks.

Mmmmmph. Part of me suspect it's Japanese-VA-Syndrome like I had with Ed originally, but... yeah. Travis Willingham as Roy just ain't clicking for me like the others are. The original VA was smooth and determined. Travis... well, he's got Mustang's attitiude OK, but the voice just... isn't quite Mustang. I'll give him some time, but...

BTW, Travis has a Livejournal here: http://www.livejournal.com/users/mustangactor/

Hmm. Having watched the episode again, I revise my take on Mustang. The voice COULD work, I think for me it was a combination of "VA-shock" and the actor not being fully warmed up to the character yet. Episode 5 and beyond will be a big test.

Seems I'm the only one (thus far) who voted "I love the American version."

I will admit, Roy's VA isn't the best it could be. But I do like it. He'll fit. I'm liking all the VAs thus far (especially Al's, now that he sounds more realistic).

I thought Travis Willingham sounded fine as Mustang.

Oh and all the talk about shooting/killing/beating Funimation needs to stop. Its infantile, sick, and ridiculous. Mods, do something about this because its really deplorable. And anyone who takes part in it here, you should knock it off and realize you are being bakas.

Travis did a good job with getting Mustang's character down, but he sounded so... UNENTHUSIASTIC.

I'm not saying that Mustang always sounded like he was high on caffine or anything, but his voice was kinda droned of energy. O_O Wow, this is harder to explain than I thought... Oh well.

We'll have to wait and see what happens in episode 13!

I'll be honest, I've seen the subbed episodes, so having heard Mustang's Jap. voice, yes, the English voice that I'm NOT used to sounds wierd. However, I think the voice suits him fine, it'll just take some getting used to. Get over it people, no one's dub voice is going to be identical to the original Jap. voice. So Mustang's voice is a lil deeper and rougher sounding, it's not too much of a difference.

Summarized: Mustang's voice is fine, just get used to it.

I actually like Roy's voice.. it could've been a LOT worse.. and for some reason, him being kind of sarcastic in episode 3 (eventhough he's not really supposed to be), actually worked for me..

Actually, their VAs are different, but I think that Roze's and Riza Hawkeye's voice actresses in the dub are the same. I hope to God they don't screw that one up.

I'm a disgruntled girl...I mean, they did a fair job with the dub, but...*shrug* I agree in that Roy's voice was...off. Not in its enthusiasm, not whatever-else, but I think it was a tad low and...didn't match...*shrug* perhaps I'm just used to his normal jpn. VA.

Mweh. XD

Eh... I don't think the voice itself sounded off at all. It was surprising, but I think the voice was very accurate. By "off" however, he sounded out-of-character. He had an "I-really-don't-wanna-be-here-right-now" type of tone, and that was just not Roy. Too much arrogant sarcasm perhaps? He dragged his sentences. Yeah, it's really hard to explain.

The real acid test will be episode 13 or so. -.- Like I said before, I can't wait to hear him rant about mini-skirts.

...And yes, Rose and Riza have the same dub voice actress. Creepy thought. I'm also curious as to what Hughes will sound like.
