When people recognize you for your voice and look, but maybe they have a really bad memory when it comes to your real name, what character's name are you most called by? [Cause I know I would end up calling you "Vash" since that was the first character I heard you as lol!]
Otakuite | Posted 02/12/12 | Reply
Its interesting looking back at his body of work, and since I'm one of those kids from the '90s that grew up watching him playing Adam Park it was sort of a bit weird to find out that was the same guy voicing Lelouch, Vash, Ichigo, etc... Anyway, questions:
1) Do you feel any closer to a character that you've done the motion capture as well as the voice for?
2) Was there any inspiration at all you pulled on for the Lelouch's evil laugh? Its by far my favorite in an anime, always gets me excited for the shenanigans he's about to pull, even after having watched the show far too many times.
3) Does it feel odd voicing younger characters like Renton?

go go power rangers..~ i grew up with this show and im watching my neighbor kids growing up from this too.. @v@
some of my questions have been asked already but i want to know..
"how did you get the job..? did you audition for the role or did they scout you..?" it's a broad question so if you wouldn't mind giving a few roles that you applied for and a few roles of which you just got called in to do the job.
and here's a question from Cassandra Moore from facebook.. >v<
"was there any job that you wanted to turn down at first but end up enjoying it in the end?"

All right, here are my questions. Sorry if some of them aren't as good as the others, since I'm not that exposed with his works (except for Power Rangers, which I'm sure I had seen as a kid, though I can vaguely remember it).
1. If you were not working in the entertainment business today, where would you be working in right now?
2. What are your plans with your wife on Valentines Day?
3. In a hypothetical one-on-one fight, who would prevail? You or Adam Park?
4. As a Power Ranger, you also had the privilege of having your very own action figure (link). How did it feel to have your own face featured in an action figure?
5. If coolness was a sin, would you apologize for it?

First off I want to say that my girlfriend and I are huge fans and I loved watching Power Rangers growing up. Second, what is it like playing Ichigo on Bleach, what was it like doing the commentary for the first Bleach movie with the other voice actors, and who is your favorite Bleach girl?

When you decide switch from live action to voice acting and why the characters you played sound so similar
Oh wow, great job having Johnny Yong Bosch come to chat! ^_^ I have questions for both anime and Eyeshine (who if any of you haven't heard yet I sincerely recommend you do):
This might be a little too general, but have the characters you've been cast to play based on your voice similar to how you see yourself as a person? And if so (or if not), why?
How did you and Eyeshine come up with the names on the Sonosis album?
Have a good time everyone! ^__^
[color=orange]First of all, thank you Johnny for taking the time to do this interview! =D
Now, here's my question: Who was your favorite character to voice or act for and who was the toughest character to voice or act for?[/color]
I'm only thinking whilst typing, but could Adam really top this? I mean, not dissing JYB or anything, but does Adam have enough gumption to get someone like Steven Blum or Vic Mignogna? If that's the Honest to God truth, it seems theO has become more of a powerhouse of otaku culture then most members realize, one that people respect and recognize. So congrats I believe are in order to the fine Team who puts this all together. On behalf of the members, I thank you Adam, someguy, TimeChaser, Ace, SunfallE, Ichigo, and anyone I may have missed (your actions are small but not unheeded) and I will see you Monday
So I asked how you were going to top Colleen Clinkenbeard. Adam, you do not disappoint.
So here's my question:
Johnny, theOtaku held a survey that counted down the greatest characters of all time. Out of the names, you were the only only that voiced THREE characters (Ichigo Kurosaki, Vash the Stampede, Lelouch Vi Britannia). Though ultimately the prize of greatest character went to Edward Elric, how on earth did you approach these three very separate roles to make them so iconic?

I'm so happy. He's like my favorite voice actor! Here's my question: Do you ever get tired of all the screaming Ichigo does?

Sweet! Another celebrity Q&A session :D I think a variation on this was asked, but I'll submit it anyway:
Is there a series that you'd like to see receive an English dub? If so, which series? And if you could voice one of the characters from that series, who would it be?
If it's all the same to you, Pit doesn't mind being called "sir" :D

*watches video* Lol I used to have a crush on Tommy from Power Rangers. I also love how the original Power Rangers had an Asian girl playing the Yellow Ranger and an African American guy playing the Black Ranger (before Johnny came along). I am totally not racist - just a playful observation. *is PC sometimes*

I am not a follower, I am a friend. I do not ask for subscribers, only friends.
I have two questions:
1. Do you miss being a Power Ranger?
2. Although it seems as if many of the characters you voice act are similar in nature, is there any one character you enjoyed voice acting the most OR that you connected with the most?

You're being held hostage by a madman with bo staff skills and a major jealousy complex. He claims you have too much talent and skill for one human being. On pain of death, he demands you choose one of your skills and give up the rest for all time. Which skill/talent would you choose (martial arts, voice acting, etc) and why?

My to question to Johnny Yong Bosch is:
1.) With word that Bandai is pulling out the U.S. Anime Industry and anime not as widespread on t.v. like it was years back, do you think there is a serious decline in U.S. Anime Industry and do you think fansubbers are a major cause of it?
2.) How does it feel going from live action acting to voice acting?
What's your all time favourite Character you have ever played and what makes him your favourite?

How awesome was it to be the guest leader/star in "Once A Ranger"?
Here's my question:
"Do you feel that you in some way can relate to any of the characters you dubbed in any way?"
I actually had a couple of other questions but they were already asked.

It's not any different. The restriction is lifted for the event since often the guest has to make an account just to get into chat after all.
In the name of the tune I will punish you!
Hope this is a somewhat good question but;
Do the characters you voice sometimes rub-off on your personality or thoughts???

Yo! I have some rather (stupid? maybe) questions to ask of him!
1) How did you jump from Power Rangers to anime? (Not saying I don't love Power Rangers) I mean, it's not really a long stretch, but still...
and 2) How diabolically awesome did you feel while acting as Lelouch?
I'm serious! XD~

Is there a character that you've regretted taking on, either from a difficulty stand point or just ending up hating him? On that same note, is there a character that you wish people recognized as you more often or less often?
Otaku Eternal | Posted 02/08/12 | Reply
You work in a lot of anime with the same people. You must have made many great relationships with these people. How do you feel with the projects end with them, or do you already know you'll see them sooner than others?
It'll probably be a confusing question for him...I'm not very good at asking questions of voice actors...;orz
Are there any characters from a series that hasn't been dubbed that you really want/wish to voice?
Are there any voice actors/actors in general that you admire/are inspired by?
Otakuite++ | Posted 02/08/12 | Reply
You play a range of characters, from Lelouch Lamperouge to Emil Castagnier. How do you make each character you voice different and interesting?
Out of all of the voice acting roles you've taken, which is your favorite?
I'm personally a big fan of yours, so I wanted to ask this question (though I won't be on when you do this interview/chat). What was it like being a Power Ranger?

I could totally answer your first question. >.>
Do you think Bleach will EVER end and if so are you looking forward to it or not? XD
Also, have you ever gotten a sore throat from acting out Ichigo's screaming? XD
Sorry, just curious. But that's two question's I would ask him.
From all the voices you did as a voice actor, who would win a all out brawl???

(Ooh, okies, I got one~)
You're an awesome actor/voice actor and some time ago I've learned that you can sing, too. My younger brother is a real fan of your band, Eyeshine, and he's made me listen to quite a lot of your songs. Which are so amazing, so I gotta ask, what inspires you to write these songs and are there any songs that are your particular favorites? Why?
(I'm gonna die from happiness if he answers this one <333 XDD)
Have you heard of Hiimdaisy's Persona 4 Comic and/or the Comic Dub that was made for it? Did you like it?
Do you typically play/watch things that you do work in?
If approached, would you reprise your role of Tohru Adachi in a Persona 4: The Animation English dub?
The only true currency in this bankrupt world is what we share with someone else when we are uncool.

but it's not Sirius. ;-;
thank goodness it's not Rebecca tho
Holy CRAP!!! Way a go TheO!! U GOT SOMEONE IF NOT, THE MOST RECOGNIZED VOICE ACTOR/ACTOR KNOWN TO THE ANIME WORLD AND POWER RANGERS WORLD!! THANK GOO XD!!
*ahem* setting the side of me nerding out....
here's my question to JYB: Out of all the anime shows that you've done. WHO'S YOUR FAVORITE ANIME CHARACTER THAT YOU HAVE DUBBED THUS FAR!?
Oh i almost forgot... I'M A REALLY REALLY BIG FAN OF YOURS It's all thanks to TRIGUN, WOLF'S RAIN, BLEACH, SENGOKU BASARA: SAMURAI KINGS 1&2, and most of all... Power Rangers
Okay, I think I have one.
Who would win in a fistfight: Guy Cecil, Tohru Adachi, or Kuhn? Would he even remember Kuhn? I'm not even sure...
I did not think it would be a celebrity chat.

Question: When you are voice acting do you visualize yourself as the character you are portraying???

Thats awesome news :D *faints*
worst time ever. I will be late and I might even miss it! My class gets over AT 4:30 ET.

Oh Wow! Talk about blast from the past! Now my question to you is:
"Do you find yourself acting like the character who you are doing the voice acting for?"
Awesome, he's one of my favorite voice actors.
I can't really think of any good questions. Maybe:
What type of character do you like voicing better, the good guys (Ichigo, Nero, Vash) or the more villainous types [Sasori, Lelouch (Lelouch isn't really bad but his voice sounds more evil)]?
So it was an event after all. And Celebrity Chats again oh gee. I won't mind if we get riddles to solve before every chat announcement. xD
It's someone I've heard of this time! Too bad I don't really like dubs so aw, I'm not a JYB fan. Might sit in just to watch the spectacle tho lol.
The new questioning format is a charmer, and a much better alternative. x3

-What was it that got you into voice acting?
-Know anything about an English dub of the Persona 4 anime? If not, would you voice the protagonist/Adachi if approached to do so?
Congrats on making me a delinquent theO, I'll be ditching class if I have to so I can be here for this~<3
"Some people never go crazy. What truly horrible lives they must lead."

Omg, after looking up those rolls on wikipedia, I was actually right... He was in Darker than Black (which I haven't seen yet), Vash himself, and in Naruto~
But best of all, he was Lelouch~ Awesome sauce =D
Then my question is: Johnny, will you be attending any conventions this year, and if so, which ones?
Oh, man, I love this guy~ He did a really great job voicing Firion in Dissidia :>
Okay, so my questions: You've done voice acting for the Final Fantasy Dissidia games with about 29 other voice actors. How did it feel working with so many other voice actors? Was there anyone who you particularly liked working with, and if so, who?
OH...MY...GOSH!!! I had a crush on him back in his Power Ranger days, I even own the movie! I totally want to be there for this~! I hope I don't forget this time XDD;; I want to ask him questions but ah, I don't know what to ask. o(> w <)o I'll just sit there or something, lol~
