: I agree with you on Pride's voice. I did not like it a bit. Sure, it kept whole essence of "Whoa Pride is just a kid, so him being Selim Bradley makes "sense"
". But that's just it! Because his voice was as "squeaky" as it was, if a viewer was smart enough, or at least thought it out hard enough, Pride's alias would be dead obvious. I feel that Pride's voice needs to have more of a "creepy", maybe scratchy feeling. With the same VA, sure, but toss in the scratchiness of Envy and maybe that could fly.
You what, now I'm thinking of anime1 Wrath
But lately, I've been watching the dub with a friend who recently just got into FMA (and is only following the dub) and he has no clue at all to who Pride is. In fact, he keeps insisting it's an alien since Pride's name wasn't even mentioned in the conversation he had with Wrath
and he won't even let me tell him Pride's name is Pride and so that he can be put into the league of Homunculi and not aliens
So maybe it's not as obvious as it seems.
Other than my complaint for Pride, I think everyone else did fine. I've always been a fan of Ling's voice. It works for me, and here, his VA seemed to be getting more comfortable with Ling as well. It's starting to feel more natural now
. I have a minor complaint with Knox, but he's a minor character anyways. Raven was... okay. Didn't really care, honestly. Bradley was amazing- he's always been IMO. His wife on the other hand sounds so fake, it makes me think she's actually aware of Bradley being a homunculus, with her fake "happiness". Maxi's Al was great, but when that scream came after Gluttony ate Ed, Ling, and Envy, it sounded really girly. Travis and Colleen did fine this ep, though I still think Riza's a bit erm... deep. Ed and Envy were awesome too.
two cents there.
