Thank you, my friends and comrades. I have returned victorious! I found where the signing was to take place just in time to get a good spot in line, and there he was. Shook his hand (twice), got four promo posters signed and the front page of the FMA Manga's Profiles, and even a photo (Disposable camera, not digial, so don't expect to see the prints any time soon).

Very nice guy. Polite and everything.

Anyone have any FMA related questions concerning the Con?



...*seethes with pure jealousy* lol, you're gonna post those pics right...?

Well, they were taken with a Disposable camera, so I'll want to use up all the pictures, then it may take awhile to get them developed, but yeah...I'll post them eventually.

In your opinionl, how was the English version of Conqueror? (Well, the clips that you saw at least.) I have only seen it in Japanese and did not understand some of the finer details, so I am waiting until it comes out in Europe whenever that shall be. Gah, I wish I could have gone. Conventions in Europe are pretty sub-par in my opinion.

How far are you in watching FMA? That may be part of the cause. The movie is basically a super long episode 52 to alot of people.

I have seen all of the episodes including the movie. The movie did not feel like an extended episode in my opinion though. However, I saw the movie in Japanese and was just questioning Nepharski what he thought of the English dub of the movie, because I am rather interested to see it when it comes out in Europe.

Not to shabby, but it was hard to hear some of the finer points of dialogue over the din of noise and people talking. Scenes previewed were exceprts the masked bomber, Edward protecting Noah from some of the Thule Society's lackies, Envy's dragon form, Lior's invasion, and Wrath vs. Gluttony. Since it's rather hard to see it in soundbite fashion, I'll simply say that my only complaint is with that one masked guy in the begining...he had the right voice, but was only so-so on delivering some of his lines (not bad, but subpar). All returning cast members from the show proved just as good as they've always been. Never showed Rudolf Hess or Dietane Ekhart, though, so I've no idea what they sound like.

The American DVD release is slated for September, and will be accompanied by a theatrical release on September 8th.

Wow, I still wish that I could have attended. Thank you for all of the information Nepharski. At this rate I will probably end up pre-ordering the English version because I know that the Spanish dub will make me cringe like none-other.

I've met Vic! He's lovely! Since I'm a Risembool Ranger, the other Rangers and I got to spend a little time with Vic all to ourselves! It was so cool, I drew him a big poster of all of the UK Rangers and he gave me a hug and a kiss.

Even though I'm a Ranger, I've never been able to attend any Ranger dinners or anything to get to know Vic better, but I have met him once (it was a hilarious panel along with Aaron and Travis, too^^) He's a great guy, and he can make you laugh easily. I love him. ^^

I wanted to go to Comic Con, but I decided to get three-day passes for AWA in September. He's going to be there, too. smile.gif

(Sorry I posted this in the wrong place!!)

Hi guys!!! I just got back from the amazing Anime Festival in Wichita (fairly small compared to San Diago, but just as equally as awesome!!!) ! The amazing Vic Mignogna (who is soooooo dreamy! and I am so in love with him!) was there!! I got to experience something very rare. When I met him, I met this wonderful man who loves his fans and takes time out of his REALLY big schedule to spend time with them and tell them how much he appreciates them! This is something that I don't see in many people, especially those of celebrity status. For example, this girl (probably in her late teens) and her mother made and sent Vic a pillow. Her mother has terrible arthritus and had to push towards the end to finish. Her mother couldn't come to the con, so the daughter asked Vic if he would mind saying something into her video camera for her mom. I was walking through the lobby when he did this and became immediately moved to tears! He didn't just say a few words, but an entire message that was so sweet! That's something you just don't see. So basically, if anyone of you guys EVER get to meet this oh-so-dreamy, wonderful man, spend the time waiting for his autograph and let him know that you really appreciate his work. Not just as a voice actor, but as an actor, musician, graphic designer, and above all, an amazing human being!!

Thanks guys for taking the time out to read this!! I would love to read more responses and stories dealing with your own, personal Vic experiences and (for those who don't know) make sure to visit these sites:

I met Vic about a week ago at Animethon. He is indeed a nice and funny man. We all lol'd lots during the Q & A with him. He sung happy birthday to a girl after he discovered they had the same birthday (August 27 I believe) which was very sweet. (lol, the clip of that's on youtube now >3<)

I was gonna throw my Roy plushie at him after he said that he wanted a t-shirt that said "plushies can't fight back" but someone else behind me beat me to it and threw his Vincent Valentine plushie. Damnit, it would've been funnier if I threw my Roy one! >_<

But yeah, he signed my volume of FMA manga and me and my friend got a picture with him. I asked him to come back next year so I could give him a doujinshii, but animethon is so small, I wonder if they can afford his accomendations again, or op to bring in different VAs instead.


So, yes, very nice man. I'd like to encourage others to go and meet him if they have the chance and he's at a nearby con.


A little funy bit tho, originally I wanted in to the first panel, but they cut the line off right in front of me, and they told me and my friend that they were gonna have a second one later. So we go shopping then come back to linger at the room so as to get a good space in line. I'm just standing there letting my sign hang (I had a big sign I was wearing and it was heavy) when I hear some girls getting excited. For a moment I didn't really care about them, till finally I say to myself "Okay, what's going on?" and there, right in front of me with his back turned to me is Vic.

I didn't even realize ANYONE was there. Either he has prowlness or my awareness level is nil. (probably the latter. I missed an opportiniuty to talk to Tiffany Grant -known mostly for the role of Asuka in Eva- later that day for nearly the same reason. She started talking to my friend in the dealer's hall just as I ran off to snap a picture of an Envy cosplayer. Damn me.)

Thank you, my friends and comrades. I have returned victorious! I found where the signing was to take place just in time to get a good spot in line, and there he was. Shook his hand (twice), got four promo posters signed and the front page of the FMA Manga's Profiles, and even a photo (Disposable camera, not digial, so don't expect to see the prints any time soon).

Very nice guy. Polite and everything.

Anyone have any FMA related questions concerning the Con?


Hey! Wasn't he just great?! I got to meet Vic this weekend in Wichita, Kansas! It was an experience that completed my life! I could have died that afternoon with no regrets! I waited in line for over an hour (they were beginning to cut the line off so we all squeezed forward!) and I would have waited for forever just to meet him! He signed all my stuff, talked to me, then stood up to give me a hug!

For those of you who actually know where Oklahoma City is, he'll be here November 2, 2007 at the Izumicon!! Hope to ya'll there!

Aw, Vic's a wonderful person...I've never met him but I really want to - just watching the YouTube videos of his panels and stuff is awesome. Next time he comes to the UK I'm going to try and be there no matter what! ><
