Johnny Yong Bosch Returns to Voice Vash the Stampede in Trigun Stampede

25 years after the original Trigun series aired, Johnny Yong Bosch is returning to the franchise to reprise his role as Vash the Stampede in the English dub of the new series Trigun Stampede.

According to a press release from Crunchyroll, Bosch will return to voicing Vash the Stampede in Trigun Stampede’s English dub, which begins airing weekly on January 21. The show began airing in Japanese on January 7, with new episodes also debuting weekly on Saturdays.

“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,” Bosch told Crunchyroll. “I look forward to going on this adventure with fans once more and hope new audiences enjoy the journey as well.”

The sci-fi space western Trigun Stampede follows Vash the Stampede, a gunman and pacifist who finds out there’s a $6 million bounty on his head. 

We named Vash one of the 25 greatest anime characters of all time, saying that, while he’s “often portrayed as a childish goofball, in reality, he’s a very complex and tortured character.” The original Trigun also earned a spot on our list of the 25 best anime series of all time.
