I really wish this guy could be the voice for Eren Jaeger. His voice would match the originals really well.

I got to play with his band, Eyeshine, when I was in my old band back in 2010 (I think) at the McAllen, Texas Omnicon. Fun times!

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

@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.
Regomania
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.
Nightmare Crusher
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.
Regomania
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).

Get him to do more Western Animated Voice-Over roles, please.
Dark Paladin X
said at 9:20 AM on Wed Aug 21 2013
@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).

@Troodon2

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 .
A pity that that particular role of his is so underrated.

I like his voice acting though, but his always sometimes voice act with Stephanie Sheh is show, movies and games.

But why is that?

Is not like there couples!
Music Meister (Moderator)
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
PurpleWarrior13

@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?
pokemastanumba1
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.
PurpleWarrior13
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).
