@Kale I saw this figure before, and it's in top ten in my wishlist. Too bad I don't live in America, or whatever to buy it sad.gif

In waiting for new chapter I did this fanart. Critique appreciated.

She does look rather 'off' sometimes, doesn't she?
I've gotten used to her Japanese voice in the anime but I still don't like it, she sounds like a little girl most of the time. dry.gif
Irena
I don't mind her voice all that much but in some episodes Riza's BIG GIRLY ANIMU EYES were kinda bugging me. I mean, don't we get enough of our "moe" from LanFan?
BirdieNumNum
I'm not too keen on her Japanese voice either. She just sounds way too girly for my taste.

The artwork people for Brotherhood seem to have a really hard time getting her to look consistent. In some episodes, like 19, her eyes look normal but in others they are HUGE. Just pick a style and stick with it, dammit!
Turdaewen
I actually prefer her new voice than the old one.
The old seemed as she was pissed all the time.

We never got to see who Riza was at the old anime, cause she showed no emotions in her voice whatsoever! Which made the "Ame no Hi Wa" song, for me, VERY OOC, as cool as it is.

Her new voice doesn't make her sound like a old spinster who likes noone XD And, she's not that old, anyways! She's probably 27 or something around that. She sounded much older, then. Now, she really got emotions and you can tell what she's thinking by her tone of voice.
jacksparrow589
I don't really mind either of Riza's voices. On the one hand, she could have a deeper voice. I do, but I'm guilty of intentionally pitching it up sometimes. Comes in handy when I want to claim to be a minor. smile.gif

Then again, she's relatively young, and while she's well-built, that doesn't mean her voice has to be deep. I can see where Michiko Neya could sound older than Riza should be, but at the same time, Fumiko Orikasa someitmes sounds a bit too young. I don't prefer one voice over the other, but like I said, I don't particularly dislike either of them.
BirdieNumNum
I didn't watch many subbed episodes of the first series, so I can't really compare Hawkeye's current voice to her old one.

Yeah, she's young but she's not that young. If it was pitched just a little lower then I probably wouldn't mind it, but she makes me think of some schoolgirl rather than Riza Hawkeye.

I don't dislike her voice, but she just doesn't sound like Hawkeye to me.

On a completely different note, here's a couple of fanfics I found:

I'm not sure if they've been posted here or not, but I thought I'd share them anyway. They're both oneshots and a bit on the angsty side, but they're well-written.

http://www.fanfiction.net/s/5343364/1/Burning_Pile

http://www.fanfiction.net/s/5325543/1/Ghost_of_the_Future

There's no shortage of Royai fanfics out there, but good ones can be hard to find. When I first became a Royai fan I read every fanfic I could get my hands on with wild abandon, but now I've become a lot more selective about which ones I read. There are just so many where they are both written so horribly OOC that I barely consider them to be the same characters.

I agree with this. I personally love Michiko Neya as a voice actress (this may have to do with her voicing my favorite Eureka Seven character AND my favorite FMA character. XD), but she does have her flaws when voicing Riza. Fumiko Orikasa, well, it can be too young at times. tongue.gif

I would love it if Michiko Neya just put a bit of her Talho voice acting into Riza. Then the voice would be perfect. XD
FMAobsessed
I didn't watch the first series subbed. I watched only the dubbed version. So I can't really compare the two voices for Riza. I do like Riza's voice now. There are moments when she sounds really good. But there are some that I think that she does sound too young.
Turdaewen
I love Michiko Neya as well, I just think she's a little too... annoyed as Riza, which is very un-Riza-like. For course, she didn't know what we know now about Riza, but it just seemed too cold, for me. XD But she still did a very good job just the same, I just don't think she did it better than Fumiko Orikasa is doing, just... well,... different! lol

I don't mind Riza having a 'younger' voice, to be sincere. XD I mean, I'm 24, and I'm sound a lot younger myself. It's just some characteristics of our voices pitch and there's little to do about it, other than trying to sound more serious... lol and that not always work! lol

I mean, in my case, for example: I got used to a sort of working/studying environment which requires me to be very formal and use a very rich sort of vocabulary (I'm studying to become a Diplomat and I've already worked at Embassies, so you can imagine), and I got used to it. So, when I talk out of contest, I sometimes sound very... 'trying to look older', which makes my friend laugh at LOT at me because of it. XD
Forgiven
HOLY CRAP! I did not KNOW that they animated papa hawkeye! But his name is pretty gay though.

Must...watch...episode...30...@_@
archronos
I find Riza's new voice barely tolerable, although it's approaching annoying after watching episode 30. Why is it that during the flashbacks, young Riza's voice sounds deeper? Most of the time she has this girly voice but during the flashback sequences it sounded like her VA was trying to imitate Riza's voice during the first anime.

I don't mind Riza's huge eyes, because they did something even more terrifying xD.
They did Riza's head in brotherhood shaped like a square! Honestly, it looks terrible! It KILLS the beauty of her face! >=(. She looked pretty beautiful in the manga parallel to episode 30, but there they made her look like a square D<. And they made her fat!
The new Seijuu or how they are called... I like her ^^ Since she also gave voice to Rukia from Bleach and Lady from DMC

That's how I feel too.
To be honest I can't even remember her first anime Japanese voice.... I watched most of that series dubbed.

about the voices, I think I prefer the old one....but I can tolerate the new one. (her shoutings vs lust No ) It was more heartbreak the screams of the old voice ^^

I'll take pics of the RAH Roy figure sometime this weekend *crosses fingers* and as for the PSP cover, it's for the FMA game that's out for the system, but in the November issue of Shounen GanGan, they had a Roy & Riza cover (as opposed to the Ed & Al one that's the default cover) as a free item.

And you're all welcome for the fanart.

Back to the main topic, I prefer Hawkeye's new VA over her old one. To me, she doesn't sound girlish at all and sounds right for her age. I loved when Riza broke down in ep. 19, as I thought that Fumiko Orikasa did make it sound like Riza emotionally shattered right then and there. For me, this version of Riza sounds more human than the first version.

@star
You're welcome and I know you do wink.gif

I can't help myself but just grinning! I knew she would survive! Plus we have an awesome Royai hug!!

It made my day... I'm a little hyper, at the moment. XD

I know, right? XD Now if only I can find some FMA merchandise the the hobby show later today...

I loved when he hugged Riza! It was such a sweet moment. We, Royai fans can be happy now. ^^ Those pages totally made my day, I'm so happy!

the last panel, if Hayate is the one who ultimate save everyone's day, that will be a big laugh.gif

I do believe that at least Hayate can save his daddy. wink.gif

Yes! Hawkeye's gonna live at least through this chapter.

And if Hayate's there it means he's got the whole gang from radio with him, Fuery, Breda, Rebecca, Maria and Denny included! Hope they're not taking Mrs. Bradley with them to tell hre son off!

Oh.

No.

Way.

I'm a little encouraged, but I'm also really scared. Then again, we were told that this would come... I just hoped that there might be a way out. But we don't know the outcome of it yet. Remember that "spoiler": Don't cry yet! It's not over! (Not knowing what's being said doesn't help at all, though.) Argh! Chapter 101, please come out soon!

BTW: I chose not to spoiler tag the majority this because I think I'm talking in general enough terms that it's not warranted. I don't know enough yet to really comment on what's going on.

I will admit that the first page I saw made me pretty happy, though. You want proof of Royai? You've got it!

Edit:OMG... Totally did NOT notice Hayate in there. For some reason, I see that as a positive omen...
DistantBlue
HELL YES. 8D

The hugging and such made me scream, and I desperately want to know what they are saying (especially Mei. She looks like she just saw something scandalous XD), but I am anticipating what Mustang's reaction was at the beginning of the chapter. We got like the middle/end of the chapter, so I am super-excited at what else is left to see. biggrin.gif

Aw, I don't think you should be so worried about that. That quote does not exactly mean people are going to die. They might, but to expect it as if it was in the next corner is suffering beforehand.

Let's wait and see... And, if the times comes to fell concerned or sad, than... well, there's little we can do about it, right? ^_~

^Oh, that quote doesn't worry me; quite to the contrary, it gives me hope! And yeah, not like we can do anything about what's going to happen...

...other than write mounds of fanfic. *shifty eyes*

I'll start worrying when it's time to do so. Roy's relatively safe for now (as save as a human sacrifice can be) and Riza is alive! biggrin.gif *delighted grin* No, really, I'm still grinning and laughing all the time, so happy the preview pages came so soon.

I am so happy right now. I wake up and get see Royai preview pics. I had to scream my excitment into my pillow because my roomate is still asleep. And just think, there will most likely be more.
