New Seiyuu for Roy, Scar, etc. in Fullmetal Alchemist 2

As said in Anime News Network, this coming Tuesday, the main seiyuu cast for the Fullmetal Alchemist remake this spring 2009 will be announced in Newtype, Animage and Animedia. Some of the main cast, like the Flame alchemist Roy Mustang and Ishbal survivor Scar, have changed seiyuu. Here’s a rundown of some of the cast with notes on who their old seiyuu were, if they are changed.

Gluttony Shiratori Tetsu (formerly Takato Yasuhiro)

Isaac Yamadera Kouichi

Personally, I’m a bit disappointed that Ohkawa Tooru is not reprising his role as Roy Mustang. Roy was one of my first anime crushes and I love everything about him. I’ve imbibed that voice into his personality. MikiShin’s voice is good, but it’s of different quality and timbre and I don’t know if I can get used to it. I’m also sad that Okiayu is not Scar anymore, because he’s one of the strongest and most emotional characters in the series. Like with MikiShin, I don’t have anything against Miyake Kenta, but I was hoping they’d keep the original cast, especially with the main.

I guess we can’t have everything, especially since this is a remake that will follow the manga more closely.

    Im going to freak if the English voice acting cast is the same. After seeing Funimation ruin a favorite (Ouran High School Host Club) with their HORRIBLE dubbing im not so keen to hear the similar voices within the series. If anything why not roll a couple younger new voice actors. Something NEW! not the same old sameness and such.

    I’m sad the seiyuu for Scar is changed, Okiayu Ryoutarou is one of my favourite seiyuus. And Roy’s voice was great before, why did they change it?
