Interview with Vic Mignogna – an accomplished voice actor, whose perhaps most famous character, Edward Elric in "Fullmetal Alchemist" provides the quote that starts every show: “The most depraved kind of Alchemy there is!” Vic is also a singer/songwriter who appeared on Star Search singing a song called "Worth Waiting For." He has released the albums “If These Walls Could Talk,” “Selah” and “Metafiction.”
Vic Mignogna is a celebrity among fans of English anime dubs; his roles as characters such as Dark Mousy, Gawl, Edward Elric, and the evil Broly from the 3 Dragon Ball Z movies, along with his crazy interaction with his fans, have generated a large fanbase. He is a guest at many anime conventions across the United States and Canada. He now has an official fanclub, "Risembool Rangers" (named after Edward Elric's hometown in Fullmetal Alchemist), with members in almost every state and across the world, including fellow voice actors Caitlin Glass and Scott McNeil. Vic's appreciation for his fans led to the creation of the short film Fullmetal Fantasy.
There is also a friendly rivalry between the Rangers and Travis Willingham's fan club, the Miniskirt Army. When both actors are at a convention together, there is usually a game of dodgeball between the two fan clubs. One famous clash at a Tennessee event is immortalized in a song played on and discussed during the show.
