Lelouch is my favourite out of all the awesome characters he voiced ..wish he would be in funmiation dubs not just viz media ones cause I wanna hear his voice more ..
said at 11:33 AM on Wed Nov 25 2015
@Centro He's slowly getting more and more Funimation work. I wouldn't be surprised if he decided to regularly work between Dallas and LA, like Bryce Papenbrook, Lauren Landa, Todd Haberkorn, Cherami Leigh...and I'm sure a few others.

What can I say about this man that hasn't been said before? He is a legend. So many fantastic performances. Ichigo, Narukami, Jonathan, and my favorite of them all, Lelouch. Dear God, that performance. Calling his Lelouch Oscar worthy would be an understatement. So much indescribable passion, force, inspiration and power. Truly one of the greatest performances I have ever seen. VO or otherwise. He may reuse his voices a bit, but IMO, it doesn't matter. He always succeeds at portraying his character and putting every bit of his heart and soul into it. God bless this man. His acting will always be timeless. He has earned every bit of praise he has recieved and more.

I loved him in Code Geass and I've always wanted to meet him in person.

Unfortunately I've never seen him around the FUNimation studio anytime that I'm there. Since he lives in LA, we don't see him around too often.

Happy Birthday Johnny Yong Bosch.

He may not have the absolute greatest vocal range but he has such a amazing acting range able to go from voicing heroes like Ichigo Kurosaki, Vash the Stampede, Renton Thurston and Bumblebee to nice guys like Yusaku Kitamura, Yukio Okumura and Artemis as well as morally ambiguous characters like Rossiu and Braz D. Blood but IMO he truly excels when he plays delightfully wicked villains like Izaya Orihara, Ryunosuke Uryu, Claire Leonelli and especially as Lelouch Vi Britannia my favourite role of his.

This guy is just...brilliant. His other version of Adachi from the Persona 4 Animation is some of his best work, in my opinion.

Plus, he's an English VA who can properly pronounce Japanese words (because he speaks the language). Always a plus.

one of the most recognizable voice actors imho and i love his work.. his and steve blum's are those kind of voices you can almost immediately recognize if you've heard them enough.. i'm not much for english dubs (voices sometimes lack proper inflection) but usually when these guys are cast for it, it tends to be pretty good.. plus can't forget him as the black power ranger adam park..

I didn't see this coming, but it was just announced that Johnny will be voicing Artemis in the Sailor Moon series along with his co-stat, Michelle Ruff as Luna. I never did see Johnny voicing a talking white cat, but considering with his talent as a voice actor, I'm pretty sure he'll blow us away. I tip my hat to you Johnny.

They need to add in the role he played as the Black Power Ranger in Mighty Morphan Power Rangers even though it wasn't a cartoon he still played in it and that was one of his major rolls and what started his acting career
said at 12:00 PM on Mon Dec 16 2013
@dilanar Technically, it could be counted as a "voice-over role". When he's in his Power Rangers suit, his lines are most likely dubbed over the parts where he is in the suit due to the mask most likely muffling his voice, which would require him to record them. If that's the case, then technically, it counts as a VA role. :)
NCZ (Admin)
said at 12:40 PM on Mon Dec 16 2013
@dilanar The entire point of this site is that it's a voice acting site. We're not adding any live-action non-voiceover roles, ever.
said at 12:29 AM on Mon Jan 6 2014
@NCZ They're not REALLY in the suits, they're dubbing to the suit actors head movements. So, it DOES count technically.

said at 1:55 PM on Tue Jan 7 2014
@Regomania Actually, the show was trying to use less stock footage outside of the giant fights at the time and the rangers actors were in the suits very often.
said at 2:17 PM on Tue Jan 7 2014
@Nightmare Crusher Yeah, But now they're actually flying over the japanese stunt actors to do the footage in the suits.

Are there any roles where Johnny Yong Bosch does accents. I have a feeling that 90% of the time, they usually ask him to use the same voice in his anime roles (and sometimes asking him to use a higher pitch voice in a few other roles). However, I don't think he ever does accents across from his role as Kurosawa in Binary Domain (he does a Japanese accent, but it's easily recognizable).

If Dog Days anime gets a dub, I would like to hear him voice Cinque Izumi with a British accent. Or better yet, get him to voice a sylvari character in Guild Wars 2 (the sylvari speak with British accents).

Dark Paladin X

@Troodon2 That would a little difficult. Most western animated cartoons are union-only and they rarely hire fi-core members nor are they non-union. Johnny Yong Bosch is often associated with anime, which is non-union; and most western animated cartoons are usually quite reluctant to hire anime voice actors due to union concerns with few rare exceptions (Troy Baker and Laura Bailey normally work in anime, but they have been getting western animated cartoons more and more often).
said at 6:50 PM on Tue Aug 27 2013

I don't if this counts as "western animation" but the Nicktoons cartoon called Three Delivery that was broadcast in 2008-2009. Both he and Stephanie Sheh star in that series. That could have been recorded as a prelay.

How low can he pitch his voice? I don't remember him going any lower than Lelouch.
I wish Johnny got to explore his vocal range a little more. Roles like Renton, Claus and Emil are part of the reason why I like him. And while a lot of roles require him to chew the scenery, I think he's perfectly capable of delivering subtle, nuanced performances if directed to do so. Claus, Lelouch- when he's not being melodramatic- and Kiba are fine examples of this.

@nikipotamus The hot-bloodness and hammy performances of Johnny Yong Bosch is the main reason why I enjoy his roles :). Although he is capable of doing high-pitch voices, I wish he can explore doing accents in his future voice acting roles since 90% of the time, they usually ask him to use the same voice over and over again (Of course, since anime is ADR voice work, there is usually less creativity involved).

His performance as Takaki Tohno from 5 Centimetres Per Second has to be one of the best ones yet- it's subtle and nuanced, not to mention heartbreakingly wistful .

said at 5:42 PM on Wed May 4 2011
@VanOsdel 0123 I think it's more that they work for Viz Media and thus are in a lot of things together.
Like how Collen Clinkbeard and Chirst Sabat are in a lot of stuff together but they'er not together
said at 3:28 AM on Sat Nov 26 2011
@Music Meister Viz doesn't own a dubbing studio. They outsource their dubs to other studios (like Studiopolis and Bang! Zoom! in California, Ocean Studios in Vancouver Canada, and Blue Water Studios in Vancouver, Canada). No voice actor "works" for Viz. Johnny and Stephanie are both based in California and occasionally work in Dallas. Colleen and Chris are often cast together because they're both Dallas-based voice actors. No voice actor is contracted at specific studios. They work at the various studios around where they live. Make sense?
said at 9:45 PM on Fri Jul 26 2013
Actually, Blue Water Studios is in Calgary, although Viz (among other anime/manga dub companies) do outsource their English dubs there. It's not uncommon for voice actors to relocate to other regions to find more work.
said at 10:29 PM on Sat Jul 27 2013
@pokemastanumba1 Yeah I know. I'm pretty sure that was a typo! XD

They don't share a talent pool, but there have been a couple dubs that use BOTH, and there are some decent voice actors in Calgary (like Carol Anne Day, Matthew Erickson, Roger Rhodes, Dave Pettit, etc).
