Wow, this conversation turned from "too much stripping" to "debate over voice-actors".
In my opinion, I love stripping images, scenes, all I can get =) Edward has an amazing personality, he has the righ to take off clothes. Maybe he is okay with his body image which is weird considering that he is a teenager and teenagers are known to be unsure of their looks, they think they're either too fat or ugly and boys are worried about whether they look manly enough. Yet, the automail keeps bothering me. I'm sure they are not that popular and stripping might earn some curious gazes, apart from adoring ones =)
I would be annoyed if the stripping was really intentional like with Armstrong.
I think that ripping of clothes in a battle kind of portrays Edward's strong personality and self-esteem. He likes to show off, you remember his style in alchemy. Everything he does is big and decorated so that everyone will notice. I'm not sure whether it is his intention to be so visible but he seems to do what he likes and doesn't care about the protests his style gets.
Now, as for the voice actor (have no idea how it got here), I prefer Romi. She is absolutely amazing as Japanese voice actors usually are. In other countries, dubbing anime is like dubbing any kind of tv-show, you just pick some people to play the parts. In Japan, anime voice actors are highly admired. Romi can portray every emotion perfectly and her voice has some unbelievable varibiality. Vic is okay but I don't like him that much. Sure, it's more realistic if a boy is played by a man but he isn't the character. With Vic it's more like he says the lines like they ought to be said; he acts but Romi is the character.
