The dialog is pretty much the same. I've noticed some differences in lines. Like what Hughes says at the phone booth in episode 10.
Yeah, that was stupid as hell. What he said comes up as an important plot point in later episodes too.. wonder how they're gonna dance around that :X. Funimation's unnecessary changes and goofs definitely irk me to no end (here's a great example-- in the episode where Ed first fights Scar, he lists alchemy's three steps as: construction
, deconstruction, and reconstruction. bleh.).
They're definitely more accurate with this dub than they were with the original fullmetal anime so far though (my personal theory is that series that they like less, they mess with less because it's not as fun for them to work on it. Series they really like they seem to sometimes pretty freely change/"punch up" dialogue and plot points for no reason whatsoever). let's hope they learn from their mistakes and cut that junk out.
