I missed out @therealjacksepticeye playthrough of this game 2 weeks ago, but I’m glad that I’ve watched all of it, and needless to say, Jack really got me into this game:)
I srsly feel that this game can be somehow connected to Undertale…..Like the personalities and stuff.
And Jack’s vids of NITW kinda inspired me to draw them in a different style, like slightly more realism of these animals. His voice acting is awesome as well:D
And i thought the plot is kinda pointless until the end….Man, it got me thinking;/, and thanks for the awesome experience, Jack:)(i love the part where you check your black hoodie and stuff cos u were trying to break the game’s fourth wall;D)
WARNING: the following text contains spoilers and can be considered disturbing to some readers. especially my brain, because it’s leaking out my ears after typing this.
This is the first movie ever I’ve gone to see on opening night. And let me just say that, for the record, I’m glad I went to watch with friends. Without them, I would have most likely calmly exited the room, climbed up to the roof, and dived straight off.
After rewatching Fullmetal Alchemist Brotherhood recently, I was once again extremely disappointed at the amount of content the anime cut out when it covered the Ishval war in episode 30. Volume 15 of the manga (which was entirely dedicated to showing the war in detail across four chapters) still remains my favourite volume of the whole series, so I wanted to talk about 15 things that Brotherhood cut out. Some of them are minor scenes and some are more major plot points.
The images I’ve included in this post have been taken directly from the Viz Media manga, as I really dislike the poor quality scanlations of FMA that are out there. I would highly recommend buying Volume 15 for yourself, even if it’s the only volume of FMA you ever own.
The things I’ll be covering are:
Neighbouring country Aerugo’s role in the war
The Ishvalans as people - their lives and strengths
The Rockbells’ extra scenes
The military’s order to kill the Rockbells
Roy, Hughes, and Hawkeye’s extra scenes
Hughes’ extended scenes as a squad captain
Corruption of high-ranking officers and internal assassination
Armstrong’s extra scene
Torture & human experimentation of Ishvalans
Doctor Marcoh & Doctor Knox’s extra scene
Roy’s role as the Hero of Ishval
Scar’s brother’s scenes
Children as the victims of the war
The overall portrayal of the war, and how Volume 15 was written/illustrated
** VERY LONG POST UNDER THE CUT, VERY IMAGE HEAVY **
You know, yesterday’s post was pretty intence. I do like that I was able to get some frustrations of my chest rather than let them boil under my skin, and based on the reception of that post a lot of people seem to agree with me and what I pointed out. But one I want to avoid becoming is little miss bringdown. So I decided to brighten up the mood a bit by delving into the realm of voice acting.
And who else better to start with than with my real life senpai, Matthew Mercer.
God, he’s so gorgeous, even in real life…
*clears throat* Anyway, let’s take a look at some of the characters our dearest has leant his lovely voice to.
Now Fire Emblem fans likely already know he has voiced a few characters in recent games, including two of my favorites, Chrom and Shigure. You also likely already know from a previous post that he also voices Yusuke in Persona 5. Plus, any Overwatch player already knows that he voices McCree.
But now it’s time to list off some of his other roles.
To start and build off that gif, he actually voices
prince Diamond from Sailor Moon (or prince Demande if you’re watching Sailor Moon Crystal). And considering this anime is rather old, it goes to show just how long he’s been in the business.
And that’s not the only long standing anime he’s been a part of. He’s also voiced
Trafalgar Law from One Piece.
And as it that’s enough to surprise you, he’s also voiced
Shukuro Tsukishima from Bleach. I don’t know much about him, since I haven’t watched Bleach in years, but he is one handsome man.
In fact, Matthew seems to have a bit of a habit playing characters who are pretty handsome.
For one, he voices someone from one of my favorite anime:
Joker from Black Butler.
Leon S. Kennedy from Resident Evil 6.
We also have
Lao from Xenoblade Chronicles X.
And to top off the handsome men he likes to voice, he’s voiced
Jai Chong from Dynasty Warriors. And I’ve heard the way he voices ths guy, and I can now say that Matthew can do one hell of a Sephiroth impression.
He also voices
Taishi Ci, but I don’t really hear people talking about him, so moving on.
Now these next two are definitely going to satisfy certain fans. For any Phoenix Wright fans, he voices
Nahyuta Sadmadhi in the most recent game.
And to fans of Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure, he voices
But Matthew isn’t above voicing smaller roles. He voices
Fei Long from Street Fighter and
Cor from Final Fantasy 15.
But one that surprised me was learning that he voices
Skelter Helter and
Bishop from No More Heroes 2. I swear I never noticed this. Just goes to show how good his vocal range is.
But these last two are really note worthy.
Turns out Yusuke is not the first Persona character he’s voiced, as he also voices
Kanji Tatsumi from Persona 4. Now based on what I saw he voices Kanji in the animated series not the actual game, but I doubt it’s that big of a deal.
And the last voice we have for our lovely Matthew is
Levi from Attack on Titan. I actually just recently heard Levi’s voice from watching a video, and it does fit very well for him. I really got to work on getting back to watching Attack on Titan so i can hear more of his performance.
As you can see, Matthew Mercer really has a wealth of experience when it comes to voice acting to have so many roles under his belt and can achieve a large range of tones and fluxes with his voice.
Now do you guys see why this man is my real life senpai?
And before anyone comments; yes, I am aware that he is currently engaged to someone else. But, hey, I’m still young and i got a lot of time and patience for the future.
Just you wait Matthew Mercer, you will be mine one day.
-the voice acting in general is just 👌 👌 👌 👌 👌 👌 👌 👌 phenomenal overall
-T H E M U S I C , G O O D G O D
-character designs are 12/10, no more creepy loli vibes and ladies have slightly less impractical armor (or at least its better than the previous two games)
-SO MANY GOOD FEMALE CHARACTERS. Like…ONE bad one and at least she doesn’t have a creepy/hyper-sexualized design
-CANON GAY CHARACTER (NOT TREATED LIKE GARBAGE)??? IN MY FIRE EMBLEM?????? (it’s more likely than you think!)
-HAVE I MENTIONED THE VOICE ACTING?…YES? I WILL MENTION IT AGAIN, THE VOICE ACTING IS INCREDIBLE
-The combat has been greatly simplified overall, but with the emphasis on terrain, it feels more challenging strategically, rather than simply overwhelming
-I forgot to mention the point-and-click aspects when you’re in a town, but THERE ARE AWESOME POINT-AND-CLICK ASPECTS WHEN YOU’RE IN A TOWN (you will love Alm and Celica’s goofy commentary in these segments, they are such dorks)
-The co-director literally grew up playing Gaiden with his father and was specifically chosen for that reason, so you KNOW this game has been handled with a great deal of passion and care, and it was evident long before I stumbled upon this fact
TL;DR: BLEASE BLAY FIRE EMBLEM ECHOES, u will not regretti spaghetti 🙏
art and character credit go to Mars, and the original post can be found here!
There is actually a dub of this comic being cast right now that I still have to submit my audition for (tho surprisingly not with this voice lol), but not right now cause I have to get up in 5 hours and I’ve fought my meds long enough!
