It is fantastic that Johnny Yong Bosch will be returning for this iconic character as the English dub would not be the same without the original. Vash is one of the roles that started Bosch’s career as an anime voice actor and remains one of his most iconic roles. This will be seamless to fans familiar with the Trigun anime series that was originally released in 2003 since Bosch will deliver nostalgia and a fantastic performance to remember.

Long time fan of Tokusatsu fan since Power Rangers was first released in the 90s. Whereas most Superhero fans grew up with DC Comics and Marvel, my childhood was surrounded by releases from Saban Entertainment such as Beetleborgs, along with anime, and other various fads of the generation. Anime is also a great passion with Digimon, That Time I Was Reincarnated As A Slime, and Demon Slayer being significant favorites. It was the love of both Power Rangers and Digimon that led to the path of becoming a Senior Writer for The Illuminerdi.
