Something interesting: The replacement for Megumi-san as Rosie is the first Edward Elric herself: Minagawa Junko. You can hear her as Ed only in the first few drama CDs which were released some time ago.

A bit of a side question - I just noted that Romi Park is of Korean descent.


Does she make note of her heritage, or even take part in Korean-language productions, as well as ones in Japanese?

Still pissed over the fact that I won't get to hear any more Mayumi Yamaguchi as Envy. She totally made the character in the first anime.

Thankfully Minami Takayama is pretty damn capable herself, but still.

Kikuko Inoue is a delicious villain. i adored her as Belldandy, i loved her as Grace, and this seems to be a repeat performance.

Envy in this series is actually something very different from the first Envy. So, a change in voice would drive home that point.

Still, Evil Conan as Envy is probably a smarter choice than Nunnally for Maria Ross. Seriously, I don't know how Nazuka-san is going to pull this one off.

Anyone else notice how Yuji Ueda is Havoc in this new season, while he was Kimblee in the last? Granted I'm all for Hiroyuki Yoshino as Kimblee, I think he'll do a great job once he gets things in motion, but still, some food for thought.

For those quiping with how difficult it is to imagine Keiji Fujiwara as a good guy, just check out Death Note, he also does another good guy in Aizawa or Eureka Seven when he plays Holland. Dude's pretty versatile if you ask me.

It's not that Fujiwara is doing a good guy that is hard to swallow, it's that he's doing it alongside Lockon that is making us snigger.

While it doesn't bother me in the slightest that's the reason, Fujiwara's most well known roles aren't even villains really.. and before Ladd Russo in Baccano! and Ali in Gundam 00 he's hardly played any... except for that guy in Blood+.

I should know: Who was the one who voiced Jiyu's bumbling dad back in the Jubei-chan series? Him, of course.

Westlo said hardly, that doesn't mean he did none at all before his role as Ali.

Eh, I disagree. They are different, but not VERY. Not enough to warrant a VA change anyways. And Yamaguchi would surely fit Manga Envy well despite his differences from his first anime's counterpart.

It's not just Ueda, Tetsu Shiratori also played Kain Fuery in the first anime and this time around he's Gluttony. xD

As for Fujiwara, like others have said, it's not difficult at all.
The guy can do anything, definitely one of the best and most versatile VAs I've seen.

Actually, I'll chalk the VA changes to the cast just wanting a frat party after the recording sessions. Looks like 00 helped forge some new partnerships.

Haha that is an interesting theory.

Seriously though as much as some of the changes irk me, I'll wait till I actually hear them, and hear enough, to properly judge them.

But I can probably already say with certainty that Miki will never surpass Ohkawa as Roy. But oh well.

I do know that she speaks Korean from her time spent in South Korea when she studied there in college.

Well, from what I know from the manga, Ohkawa had the misfortune of getting the wrong script. The back portions would be epic, especially the parts concerning Mustang.

Yeah I don't mind Miki and I think he is doing a good job actually but Ohkawa was really perfect as Roy. He was my favorite seiyuu in the original after Paku Romi. Well I guess at least we got her back.

I don't really mind a lot of the other voice changes though

I don't know about Miki, so far he's sounded very serious as Mustang, but I guess that's because of the parts he's gotten. We'll have to see how he does when Mustang starts being his typical sarcastic bastard self.

... You couldn't tell she was Korean from her last name? Last time I checked, PARK is an extremely common Korean name.

In any case, I already like Minagawa Junko more than Romi anyway. I think Minagawa is far more convincing as Ed.
