While I agree the Dub version of FMA is one of the better series among those which have a dubbed version, but I still personally prefer the original japanese +subs over dubs anytimes.
My reasons are simple: Because english is my second foreign language (and the only completely self-thought language among the four language I speak), I find it a lot easier to enjoy something where I don't have to concentrate on the voices to understand the story (Not to mention sometimes trying to comprehend some voice actor's regional dialects. Ever heard of Scottish accent?).
Usually if there's any available, I even turn on the hearing impaired english subtitles during the english shows, just because it's easier for me to understand that way. The same with anime, whenever there is a longer explanation or when they are trying to describe something throughout more complex series (Ghost in the Shell for example), I have to rewind it sometimes in order to be able to understand it completely. But thankfully that never happens with Subs though.
Speaking of FMA, I just loved Armstrong's voice, and I'm truly happy they managed to keep his voiceactor (if I'm not mistaken they are the same).

Yes, Utsumi-san is back as Armstrong, after his spell as Braking Boss in Casshern Sins. After looking at his age, I hope his health holds. He's over 70!

I wouldn't worry about Vic Mignogna, That guy loves being Edward Elric more than we love him being Edward Elric. I've no doubt he'll jump at the chance to reprise his role as the Fullmetal.

And I couldn't be happier with that, his performance was one of the few that I took notice of. Just watching episode one, hearing Ed scream at the sight of his failed transmutation was the best voice acting I'd heard in an anime, (and it still is.)

Is that Kikuko Inoue I hear talking to someone in the telephone in Episode 1 of FMA:B?

So she's voicing Lust and Mother of the Alric boys?

Yeah Lust is Kikuko Inoue, she's pretty much using the exact same voice she used for her Macross Frontier character in the last part of that. Seems she has taken a liking to voicing antagonists in the last few years.. what was her first role in such manner... I-No from Guilty Gear X?

Around that time. She also voiced Alv in Kiddy Grade.

But, her "evil" roles always seemed to come up short in the "powers" department. In KG, Alv was taken down rather spectacularly. I-no has so many different ways of being pwned by players, but my favourite has to be Slayer's. After his match against her, he and "that man" talked as if she was nothing more than an nuisance.

Well, Toyoguchi Megumi is pretty well-known. I wonder why BONES swapped her out with a relative unknown.

Maybe the decision wasn't made by Bones? I was talking this over with a few guys from here on IRC sometime lat week and she seems to be doing nothing new this season. Not only didn't she reprise Winry for this season she also didn't reprise Rosie for Valkyria Chronicles.

Last season Megumi voiced Sakurako in Viper's Creed, Shouko from Rideback as well as Airin from Akikan. She's still got Hikari in Pokemon Pearl airing right now but nothing else... wonder what's up with this... she better be back to voice Revy in Black Lagoon season 3...
