Johnny Yong Bosch will be voicing Vash in the English dub of Trigun Stampede. The same voice actor also voiced Vash in the original Trigun anime by studio MADHOUSE. The English dub of Trigun Stampede will premiere on January 21 on Crunchyroll.
“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. I look forward to going on this adventure with fans once more and hope new audiences enjoy the journey as well.” Bosch said. The voice actor started his career in Mighty Morphin Power Rangers. When it comes to anime voiceover, he is best known as Kaneda from Akira, Lelouch Lamperouge in Code Geass, Sasori in Naruto, Artemis in Sailor Moon, Giyu in Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba, Lio in Promare, Yukio in Blue Exorcist and more.

Kenji Muto is directing Trigun: Stampede, with Koji Tajima on character concepts. The series is based on Yasuhiro Nightow’s manga series, first serialized in Tokuma Shoten’s shonen manga magazine Monthly Shonen Captain from April 1995 to January 1997. The manga was later moved to Shonen Gahosha’s seinen manga magazine Young King OURs, under the title Trigun Maximum, where it stayed from October 1997 to March 2007.
Crunchyroll describes the plot as:
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.
