… a Sunrise show now?! Oops, sorry, it’s still BONES right? I nearly got thrown off by the spoiler-tastic YUI OP, gSS speedsubbing it and Lockon (Shinichiro Miki) + Ali (Kenji Fujiwara) combo of Maes and Roy. So weird to hear them playing best friends after just wrapping up a show where they were both enemies. That said, Shinichiro Miki just doesn’t match up to Toru Ohkawa. Roy’s supposed to sound
GAR obnoxious, not bishie!
One great seiyuu change they made has to be Inoue Kikuko as Lust. Ooohhh, I got goosebumps just hearing her evil voice again as Lust at the end of the episode. Dunno how Winry will sound like though. Fumiko Orikasa’s Riza Hawkeye sounds much more sarcastic than serious in her only line of the episode, but it’s something that I might really like.
Overall, the first episode is pretty okay, with another anime-original plot to go with it as an introduction to the characters. They are still going to do it the flashback way though, with the second episode jumping immediately back to “that day”.
And glad to see ol’Armstrong still as FABULOUS as usual… ahaha~
