Anime Central is proud to present Johnny Yong Bosch and Eyeshine!

Johnny Yong Bosch

Johnny Yong Bosch got his start fighting giant bugs as Adam Park, the Black Ranger on Mighty Morphin Power Rangers. It is a role that he would play for three and a half seasons on TV, two motion pictures and two special guest appearances in future Power Rangers seasons.

After Power Rangers, Johnny became very involved in voice acting work for various anime titles; usually landing the lead role. His first major voice acting role was Vash the Stampede in Trigun. He will later go on and play the voices of Kaneda inAkira, Renton in Eureka Seven, Claus in Last Exile, Clair in Heat Guy J, Sakaki in Witch Hunter Robin, Mike in Please Twins, Albert in The Count of Monte Cristo, Kiba in Wolf's Rain, Itsuki in The Melancholy of Haurhi Suzumiya, Ichigo Kurosaki in Bleach, Lelouch Lamperouge in Code Geass and Izaya in Durarara.

Johnny’s voice can also be heard in numerous video games. He voices the main character Nero in Devil May Cry 4 and performed voiceover work in .hack//G.U. , Persona 4, Disgaea 3, Tales of Symphonia, Tales of the Abyss, Eternal Sonata, Bumblebee in Transformers: War for Cybertron, Yang in Street Fighter IV, Zero in Marvel VS Capcom 3 and Torian Cadera in Star Wars The Old Republic.

When Johnny is not voice acting, he is the lead singer and rhythm guitarist of the band Eyeshine.

Eyeshine

Eyeshine is a four piece, "edge rock" band originating in West Hills, California. We should probably add something cool in this bio about "how promising we sound" but we'd be lying. Maybe you should just come check us out and let us know what you think. If we suck, please don't throw tomatoes - we prefer a bag of Peanut M&M's, Skittles, Hot Cheetos or Money (unmarked). Hopefully you'll like us and want to be our BFF. Members include Johnny, Maurice, Polo, and Crystal. Check out our YouTube series to see what it's like being in an unsigned band at http://www.youtube.com/theeyeshineband or visit us at www.eyeshine.net or www.twitter.com/theeyeshineband

Awesome! ^^ He was one of the VAs I've been wanting to meet. Definitely will try and go to one of his panels or autograph session and have him sign my Witch Hunter Robin set.

And I've never been to an Eyeshine concert, so this will be cool as well. Thank you A-Cen! ^^

I'm waiting for the poo to hit the fan from anime lovers who despise the fact that Acen is once again bringing in fashion artists. :thumbdown: I like that conventions bring in other aspects of Japanese pop culture. Pure anime isn't the end all, be all of cons.

Would love to see Johnny Yong Bosch, but unless there are 1 or 2 more guests to pull me in, I'll probably opt out this year. Or maybe just go for one day. It'll depend.

Dear ACen:

I have a very limited list of people I have wanted to meet at a con.

You just managed to scratch one of the top 5 off my list.

Thank you.

Whoopee!!! I'm gathering my Trigun stuff now!

OMG! Very excited about him coming to ACEN. I'm a long time Power Ranger fan and missed meeting him when he came last!
If I get to go to the concert, it's all that much better, but on my list now is to meet him! GAHHH! THANK YOU ACEN!

Thank you! I usually only really fan over JP VAs, however I absolutely adore Johnny Yong Bosch's voice! His roles in Devil May Cry 4 and .hack//G.U are particularly memorable and captivating. Cannot wait!!

What panel do you help run? We can try to avoid scheduling against it, but priority goes to avoiding scheduling against other big guests and events.

Final Fantasy MMO panel, Saturday 5-8pm. :(

seriously, as long as there's a rat's chance I'll be able to hear JB or meet him in some form, I will be very ecstatic. If not.. oh well, I'll get over it. (I never met Yoshiki last year, though I REALLY wanted to, and I survived just fine :) )

I have been listening to Eyeshine non stop after this was announced. SO SO SO SO READY TO SEEEE THEM! If they play Friday (hopefully they will Saturday but you never know) even though I'm going to ACEN one day I will go Friday just to see the concert then go home to go back and study. I will go if Eyeshine is playing for sure. HOLLLLLAAAAAH

Late reply due to all the work on our Spring Musical and lack of computer time, but THANK YOU! Johnny Yong Bosch is one of the voice actors I've wanted to meet, because I missed my chance last time. I also have a very good friend who loves him as both a voice actor and a musician. I'm now even more excited to see what other guests get brought into the mix this year!

Now I'm not trying to say anything bad, I'm just really ignorant on the subject but does Eyeshine have something to do with anime/ japanese culture? Please correct me if I'm wrong because I have no idea in the slightest.

It's JYB's band, and their guitar player Po Lo is from Japan and has been in Japanese music videos before (my friends and I have talked to Eyeshine and Po Lo told us this himself) and they are all big fans of anime. And their music is awesome but I'm a little bias. :) if you want to learn more about them I'd recommend watching on Youtube their Eyeshine Experience videos and checking em out on their website www.eyeshine.net

If in your original question you meant "have they done any music for anime?" then no they have not. But like Mokoto said, Po Lo has been in music videos for other Japanese artists and JYB....well we all know what he's done. So they fit the con just fine
