Watching the new season of Fullmetal Alchemist left me with a sense of Deja Vu. Principal characters’ voices sounded uncannily like ones from the predecessor anime it has taken over the time slot from.
Rie Kugimiya returns to voice Alphonse Elric who also is Nena Trinity, the psycho bitch from Gundam 00.
In a totally unexpected move, we have Gundam 00’s Lockon Stratos voicing Roy Mustang. Maybe it’s because Lockon’s voice is so distinguished, whenever Roy speaks he immediately reminds me of the charismatic sharpshooter in Gundam 00. This will need some getting use to. But am glad that the seiyu of Lockon’s Haro is not voicing Riza Hawkeye.
This scene of Lockon lighting up is the only remote resemblance to Roy Mustang.
I don’t know? It’s kinda weird to see Hughes alive after witnessing his tragic departure in the manga so many years ago.
Keiji Fujiwara returns to voice Maes Hughes. He’s also Ali Al-Saachez in Gundam 00.
From ruthless killer…
…to devoted family man.
Kimbley’s previous seiyu Yūji Ueda voices Billy Katagiri in Gundam 00 but in this new season is taken over by Hiroyuki Yoshino, the voice behind Allelujah/Hallelujah, also from Gundam 00.
At least we see some similarities, like the wicked smile.
And what’s with the cheesy sounding English announcement during the commercial break anyway?
Are there anymore characters whom I missed out who share the same seiyu in Gundam 00?
