In the Fall 2022 anime season, the man, the myth, the former Black Power Ranger Johnny Yong Bosch made his two decade return to his iconic role of Ichigo Kurosaki in the English dub of Bleach: Thousand-Year Blood War. Now Bosch is making his second and probably even more iconic return to the role that launched his voice acting career as the legendary humanoid typhoon Vash the Stampede.
On January 12th, Crunchyroll announced that the former Power Ranger turned legendary voice actor will be making his second iconic two decade return as the voice behind the humanoid typhoon in the English dubbed version of Studio Orange’s new MCU/DCEU style anime adaptation of Yasuhiro Nightow’s classic space western manga.
To promote the upcoming English Dub with Crunchyroll, Johnny Yong Bosch expressed to the anime streaming platform how excited he was to be given the opportunity to return to the role in which two decades ago changed his career from Power Ranger to voice actor.
“Voicing Vash the Stampede in the original Trigun series is a role that literally launched my voice over career and I am extremely excited to voice him again in this all-new anime adaptation from Orange. I look forward to going on this adventure with fans once more and hope new audiences enjoy the journey as well,” Bosch said.
We’re excited to welcome @johnnyyongbosch back as the English voice of Vash. Get ready for the dub premiere of TRIGUN STAMPEDE on January 21.

The ADR Director on Trigun Stampede’s English Dub Jeremy Inman commented on working with Johnny Yong Bosch to deliver the English Dub of the new Trigun reboot, Trigun Stampede, to fans of the classic 1998 series.
“Trigun is anime royalty and I can’t wait to work with Johnny Yong Bosch in bringing it back to life with this new and fresh take, promising old fans the same gun-slinging action while bringing in new fans as well with amazing animation, characters, and story.”
