I think Maxey Whitehead did an excellent job, but overall, Aaron's Al seemed more genuine at times. Although I got a little tired of the drawn out "Al doesn't trust Ed" plotlines. Especially when Barry the Chopper played his whole mind-game "You're just a made-up thing and never really existed". It's bad enough in the manga and Brotherhood, with Al doubting both Ed and Winry, but in the 2003 version, he runs away from them, even though he's just bruised Ed's face and Ed can hardly stand in that version, and then he allies himself with Scar and claims he doesn't care about Ed anymore. This is the guy who tried to murder Ed not that long ago! And why? Because a confessed serial killer suggests that Ed wanted a hero-worshipping little brother... so why are so many of Al's memories regarding Ed not flattering at all?! Yet props to Dismuke--he played it very realistically.
I really like Maxey Whitehead's Al a lot, but sometimes, there are times when her Al sounds like a girl. Still, overall, I have huge respect for both Als, but I always feel immensely impressed by how Aaron Dismuke had such an amazing performance given that he was eleven when he started.
so, which alphonse is the best:
1. little kid al (cutie!!)
2. al in his armour (scary but still cute O.O )
3. alphonse in conquerer of shamballa (PONYTAILLL)
4. alphonse at the end of fmab (short hair razz )
aaron dismuke or maxey whitehead?
All Alphonse's are the best!! Except for Maxey Whitehead. I remember hearing Al for the first time watching FMAb and I literally choked on my ramen crying
