It sounds fine to me. Not quite the equivalent of the original, where Roy was both proper(Mostly by technicality), and sarcastic at the same time. He sounds a bit too casual in the dub, a little like more of a low class fighter or something, especially with some of the lines they changed for him, but still, I can't seem to find much else than that.

When I listened to Roy Mustang's voice in the last couple of episodes when he's talking to Hawkeye or General Hakuro, it just....something just doesn't click like it did in the Japanese version...It seems all too ....unright. If you know what I mean? His voice seems like a voice for ...I don't know a minor character of some odd DBZ episode.

Hmm, I think Roy's voice fits him, or at least that I would imagine him to be in real life.... Ane Ed. I love his voice ^-^ ::shot::

Hmm...well, I've only seen two episodes in English before I bailed. But personally, my problem with Travis's Roy is that he sounds perpetually bored. The Japanese Roy wasn't overtly snarky, but he had this constant undercurrent of amused smugness, a sort of "I'm insulting you but you have no idea because my vocabulary is too impressive for you to comprehend" vibe. (Except, of course, when the guy was actually being serious.) Roy is never bored, in my humble opinion. He's too crafty to be bored. Lazy, yes, but there's always something going on in that brain, even if it's just, "Gee, I think I'll wash the windows! : )"

Ed's voice isn't really that bad, I suppose, but he sounds far older than 15. And the overall take is kind of...stereotypical-brash-anime-main-character. It reminds me a bit of Stinkoman from Homestarrunner.com. "ARE YOU ASKING FOR A CHALLENGE?!!" sleep.gif*

Oh, and am I the only one who thinks the Fuhrer sounds like Sean Connery?

I think that it just depends on which version you saw first. I have never seen the Japanese versions and I like all the voice acting on the American dubs. I don't think that I will ever watch the Japanese ones either, even when I get the DVDs. I am afraid that once I watch one I will always think of ED and AL having women VAs, something I dont want to think about while Im watching the American version on Cartoon Network.

I've never heard the Japan version, but I didn't like Mustang in the Eng. dub. He sounded so... flat. Kind of dead, with no real personality. Definatly not as arogant as I imagined him.
Ed's okay. He sounds too old but he's mature for his age so it's not too bad. I love Al though, he sounds so innocent. smile.gif

Do you people ever get away from the intarweb? Everyone has weird voices. Roy's VA does a great job and ironically he looks like Roy too.

In our vast unwinding existence we tend to forget the things that were important to us
but by forgetting them we realize that they weren't all that important
but, by thinking that, u remember what u have forgotten
and in that instant of remembering what you were trying to remember
you forget about the thing you have forgotten
so before you start to forget just remember
those who truely remembered you won't be forgotten... or not.

A little part of my soul dies every time Roy opens his mouth in the dub. Seriously. It just kinda.... withers away and vanishes with a small *poof*.

Joking aside, I really do flinch when I hear the English Roy's voice. He's too cold, and his voice isn't nearly deep enough. Ed sounding too old I got over eventually, but Roy? :\ Nope. Thankfully the awesomeness that is Aaron Dismuke as Al makes up for it - makes the dub bearable for me.

*edit: I happened to be watching the English dub of Naruto the other night while I was sewing (I was bored and there was NOTHING else on), and heard Sasuke's older brother.... and dear god, whoever did his voice would have been perfect for Roy. sad.gif

Ya know, at first I really didn't like.

Over time tho, I got used to it. Actually...I think what happened was over time HE got used to it. I rewatch the first episodes now and think EVERYONE sounds horrible. In comparison to later in the series, everyone was just awkward. Eventually tho they settled into the roles and did a good job. So I like Roy in Japanese and English equally.


I watched the clips from the game tho. His performance of Roy there is just downright laughable. It was so bad it was good. XD Veyr different from the later half of the series.
