Creator / Johnny Yong Bosch


I, Johnny Yong Bosch, command you to... DESCRIBE ME HERE!

Happily, Your Highness! Born John Jay Bosch, Johnny Yong Bosch (Fan Abbreviation: JYB) is a former Mighty Morphin' Power Rangers star (he was a frog) who has since moved on to anime voice acting, starting as Vash the Stampede in Trigun, and has since moved on to other lead roles. This coincidentally pitted him as the star and hero for the ONLY TWO new anime [adult swim] was running for a year and a half- this streak ended when Code Geass completed its run in May 2009. This plus the earlier run of Eureka Seven led many to call the starting anime block "The JYB Power Hour". When combined with his role as Ichigo in Bleach, Adult Swim meant two things: shows from Williams Street, and shows starring JYB. He is the vocalist for his own band, Eyeshine. Oh, and he's an accomplished martial artist who can kick your ass.

His Japanese vocal equivalent is Masakazu Morita, since their voices have identical ranges. His career path, on the other hand, mirrors Masaya Matsukaze. In terms of casting, he is the American equivalent to Jun Fukuyama, as well as being the California counterpart to Soichiro Hoshi note , Nobuhiko Okamoto, Mamoru Miyano, and Hiro Shimono, and the western counterpart to Hiroshi Kamiya. His Canadian counterparts are Brad Swaile, Kirby Morrow and Andrew Francis, his Texan counterparts are Chris Patton, Todd Haberkorn (who currently also works in L.A.), David Matranga, Micah Solusod, Austin Tindle, and Blake Shepard, and his New York counterpart is Jason Griffith. Erik Kimerer is shaping up to be his Spiritual Successor. His Distaff Counterpart is Karen Strassman.

It's Tropin' Time!

Tropes associated with his band:

  • Album Title Drop: In "Silverstar" on Tone of Echoes.
  • Mr. Fanservice: Band co-founder and drummer Maurice is this. See Walking Shirtless Scene.
  • Perishing Alt Rock Voice: Johnny sings this way pretty often, probably because his voice has gone raspy from all the yelling he's done in doing anime voices.
  • Revolving Door Band: While Eyeshine has some fame, the band isn't a full time gig for any of its members. As such, many members have had to leave to focus on their careers or left for personal reasons, so the band's gone through many guitarists and bassists.
  • Rockstar Song: "Let's Play Our Way".
  • Studio Chatter: Done at the beginning of "Blackout" on Red Stripes White Lights.
  • Team Dad: Crossing over with Papa Wolf, Johnny is definitely this. He takes very good care of his bandmates and will shed his normally easygoing demeanor if a situation could affect them or the band negatively.
  • Walking Shirtless Scene: Maurice nearly always plays their live shows without a shirt.
