As previously announced, Ultraman Blazar, the new Ultraman TV series, will be simulcast in the English Dub and original Japanese version on YouTube starting from July 8th.
Today, we can reveal that Johnny Yong Bosch, a veteran in both the tokusatsu genre and voice acting, will voice the protagonist, Gento Hiruma, for the English Dubbed version of Ultraman Blazar.
With the success of Shin Ultraman and Ultraman Z, the English localized voiceover will be produced by Okratron 5000.
The English dub of Ultraman Blazar will be available on the Ultraman Official YouTube Channel and Ultraman Connection.
Starting from today, each member of the SKaRD English Cast will be announced every other day! The next announcement will be the voiceover of Emi Aobe. Please stay tuned!
Comments from Johnny Yong Bosch
“As a veteran of the ‘tokusatsu’ genre, it’s an honor to join the Ultraman universe as Gento Hiruma in the very first Ultraman title to debut simultaneously in both Japanese and English.
As Gento would say, ‘I’ve got this.’ - please look forward to Ultraman Blazar this July!”
Take a first look at Johnny Yong Bosch’s voice acting in the English Dubbed Official Trailer!
