You know how Johnny Yong Bosch voiced Vash the Stampede in the English dub of the original 1998 Trigun anime? Well, it seems like Crunchyroll remembers that. Why else would they hire him to voice Vash once again in the new Trigun Stampede anime‘s English dub?

Not quite the right facial expression for Vash, but it’s his voice that’s more important.

Crunchyroll is proud to announce that Johnny Yong Bosch will be returning to voice Vash the Stampede in the new Trigun Stampede reboot anime. Apparently, Crunchyroll thought Bosch (who also voiced Adam Park, the Black Ranger, Green Zeo, and Green Turbo in Mighty Morphin Power Rangers; as well as voicing numerous characters in various anime series such asKaneda in AKIRA, Renton in Eureka Seven, Kiba in Wolf’s Rain, Ichigo Kurosaki in Bleach, Lelouch Lamperouge in Code Geass, Sasori in Naruto, Artemis in Sailor Moon, Giyu in Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba, and Lio in Promare) did such a good job voicing Vash in the English dub of the original 1998 Trigun anime, that they decided to have him return to reprise his role in the English dub of this reboot anime.

As for Johnny Yong Bosch himself? Well, you need only to read his reaction to the news below to see how excited he is:

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 think Vash is ready to have Bosch step into his voice box again. Don’t you think so too?

Well, according to the Twitter post (as well as Crunchyroll themselves), the English dub of Trigun Stampede will make its debut on Saturday, January 21, 2023. This is to coincide with the release of the third episode of the anime. You know, since the anime began simulcasting back on January 7, 2023?
