The new TRIGUN STAMPEDE anime already had us partying like it’s 1998, and now we’re doubling down on the celebration, because the original English voice of Vash the Stampede in the first Trigun anime is officially returning for the dubbed version. That’s right, Johnny Yong Bosch is back in the role that kickstarted his decades-spanning career as a VA, and he sounds even more excited about it than we are.
Check out his announcement via the official Crunchyroll Twitter below.

The dubs ADR Director is Jeremy Inman, who previously worked on shows like Golden Kamuy, DECA-DENCE and more. Here’s what Inman had to say about it:
“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.”
The TRIGUN STAMPEDE dub kicks off on Crunchyroll on January 21.
Vash the Stampede’s a joyful gunslinging pacifist, so why does he have a $$6 million bounty on his head? That’s what’s puzzling rookie reporter Meryl Stryfe and her jaded veteran partner when looking into the vigilante only to find someone who hates blood. But their investigation turns out to uncover something heinous—his evil twin brother, Millions Knives.
