Actually I'm already the proud owner of 7 US version dvd's.
I actually have the intire series (and movie) fansubbed, but I really like the English dub plus the quallity of the subs is better. Besides if my computer crashes (no please don't !) I'm left with no eps at all (AAAAH!)

Actually, I first saw FMA on dvd, when I got the firs dvd in last christmas. It was European region, though. I had to buy the 2nd one, but soon after I had got that, I realized that I had no money. ;_; And dvd:s are SO expensive..... for my wallet. So, I decided to be a bad guy and downloaded the rest of the anime. Btw, I tried to listen the English dub in the first episode (after I had seen the whole dvd in Japanese). I couldn't stand more than 5 minutes. Ed's voice... was... so.. american! No! He's voice actor HAS to be woman! It just sounded so weird... that manly speaking.... No! *still gets chills* And Al's voice was... maybe it was almost okay, but still.. Uh, I dunno.

I'm still thinking about it but the prices... oh crap. I'd only buy it if there are at least some extras such as collectibles or anything of significant value to a fan. $30 for 4 episodes is overpriced. I pre-ordered the Limited Edition US version FMA movie for only $25 from Amazon. It's got collectibles and extras besides the movie itself, and I can't wait to see that 64 page book that comes along with it! So I think it's a steal. But $30 for 4 episodes and no extras... oh... that's quite overpriced.
I think the voices of the English version are better than the Japanese. And the Al voice for the English version... OMG. I wish my voice is exactly like that. Yeah, yeah, my voice is kinda like that but it not the same... there an Al kinda cuteness to it. And I already heard the real voice of Al's voice actor... he sounds EXACTLY like Al in the anime... I should have that voice... my name is Alphonse anyway! Lucky voice actor, all those girls adore him. Anyway, it odd though, Aaron Dismuke, Al's voice actor is REALLY tall for his age. He's like 5"11 and he's 14 years old now.

I'm holding volume 11 (Episodes 41-44) in my hand right now. Check Amazon.
Attention Manga Lust fans: Lust is dead. Finished. Kaput. Joined the Choir Invisible. Roy Mustang incinerated her repeatedly until her Philosopher's Stone dried up and dissolved into nothingness ("Mu" for you Japanese cultural enthusiasts). And she will remain killed off, written out of the plot. Greed was reincarnated because Father saved his Philosopher's Stone and had a guinea pig on hand. Lust is gone. Stop trying to play God with the plot line and bring her back at every possibly junction. In the event that Hiromu Arakawa can skillfully maneuver around this narrative plot hole, I will eat my words with a pinch of salt.
