  • Quotes

    • (when asked what it was like recording Alphonse Elric's voice in a metal bowl)
      Aaron: I of course managed to kick it into the mic over and over again, producing an ear piercing, deafeningly loud noise that was the formula for me nearly getting fired. Other than that, it was really cool.

    • (when asked what it's like working alongside Vic Mignogna who is so much older than him)
      Aaron: Age has never changed the way I was treated at FUNimation, and so I always have fun with Vic as well as the other adults.

    • (when asked what anime, if any, he watched before he started voice acting)
      Aaron Dismuke: Dragon Ball Z for a long time, and Yu Yu Hakusho for a longer time. After I started voice acting, I started to like Fruits Basket and a lot of less violent shows. Of course, also Fullmetal Alchemist.

    • (when asked what his friends and classmates think about him voice acting)
      Aaron Dismuke: Most of them don't believe me, but whoever does wants me to get them on a show. Everyone of course says it's really cool.

    • (when asked how he manages his voice acting career along with school, friends, and his daily life)
      Aaron Dismuke: It's pretty easy actually. Funimation works around my schedule so I can record at night and weekends. It's pretty rare for me to miss something important.

    • (when asked if he had any plans to go into live-action acting)
      Aaron Dismuke: Actually, no. I think that appearing on TV would be too much stress for me. I just want to enjoy what I have.

    • Aaron Dismuke: I had no clue that I would become a voice actor.

    • (when asked what it's like voice acting in a popular series like Fullmetal Alchemist)
      Aaron Dismuke: Pretty cool. Knowing that I am heard on TV is awesome and I am still living a regular life. The idea of having fans is totally awesome.

    • (when asked why he thinks he's been successful on Full Metal Alchemist)
      Aaron Dismuke: The whole cast was really great, and we got into the show too, because it's a well written show.

    • (when asked about his future)
