The highly anticipated English voice casting for the character of Vash the Stampede in the sci-fi space western TRIGUN STAMPEDE will go to none other than Johnny Yong Bosch, the actor who originally voiced Vash the Stampede in the original 1998 TRIGUN – both series based on the manga written and illustrated by Yasuhiro Nightow. The English dub will debut weekly, every Saturday, starting January 21, 2023, following the Japanese language simulcast, which debuts new episodes every Saturday and premiered on January 7, 2023.
Taking up the English voice of Vash the Stampede once more for TRIGUN STAMPEDE, Johnny Yong Bosch said:
“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.”
A video of his excitement also debuted via Crunchyroll on Twitter, which you can find HERE.
Beyond TRIGUN, Johnny Yong Bosch got his start as Adam Park, the Black Ranger, Green Zeo, and Green Turbo, on Mighty Morphin Power Rangers. He continued his anime journey providing English dubbing as Kaneda 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, Lio in Promare, and many, many more.
Jeremy Inman will serve as the ADR Director on the English Dub, a fellow voice actor who has also ADR directed other anime series such as Golden Kamuy, Saga of Tanya the Evil, DECA-DENCE, ID: Invaded, and more. On delivering the dub for TRIGUN STAMPEDE, Inman said:
“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.”
Yoshitsugu Matsuoka, best known for voicing Inosuke Hashibira from Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba and Kirito in Sword Art Online, voices Vash the Stampede in the Japanese language version of TRIGUN STAMPEDE.
