Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood - Episode 21 ENGLISH DUB Review

Episode 21, "The Fool's Progress"



Synopsis: Edward and Alphonse visit Roy in the hospital and exchange information. Havoc reveals to Roy that his legs are paralyzed from his injury from Lust. Roy sends Breda to find Doctor Marcoh, but he's gone. Edward is warned that Scar is in town and makes a plan with the Xingese to capture a homunculi by luring out Scar. Making himself known around town, Ed attracts Scar's attention. The homunculi, Wrath and Gluttony, come to get Scar, but they're confronted by the Xingese.


Ahahaha, oh wow, is Wendy Powell's Envy terrible. It's just... wow. My god. Funimation, really? Really? That's all I have to say about this.

There's not a whole lot to comment on this episode, dub-wise. It's not one of the better-dubbed episodes, but it's not awful, either.

Would it have hurt for the voice actors playing Roy Mustang's subordinates to put some effort into their performances? Outside of Colleen Clinkenbeard's excellent Riza Hawkeye, there isn't a single one of them who sounds the least bit believable. It's one generic voice with no emotion after another. Even Doctor Knox's VA puts in a better performance than Mike McFarland's Jean Havoc. In fact, his Havoc was better in the first series.

I sot of dig Vic Mignogna's Edward when he's going around town fixing things, but I still think Romi Paku sold it a little better.

Overall Score: 3.5 out of 5
