    For those who don't know, WFC BB is voiced by Johnny Yong Bosch, who also voices the main character, Ichigo from the english dub of the popular anime 'BLEACH". He's best known for his role as one of the original power rangers.

    How does this make you guys feel? Every time I hear him talk in the game, I'm waiting for his to shout "BANKAI!"

    I think it's awesome yet hilarious at the same time.

    What do you guys think?

    The thing is, Bosch plays a LOT of characters, so Ichigo isn't the first thing that comes to mind when I hear him, but I do get where you're coming from. Because he plays so many guys, his voice just sort of comes across as his own no matter who he's playing (and unlike some other voice actors, you can always tell it's him). In addition to Ichigo, he's also got Vash, Lelouch, Kaneda, to name the most memorable ones, in there.


    Not that it mattered, I refused to play Bumblebee in any of the single-player maps :lol

    I think he did a good jpb as BB. The only other thing besides TF that I know him from is, of course, PR, but I wasn't reminded of that at all.

    Well, Bosch actually voices MANY characters, so this isn't really a surprise to me. However, whenever I see Bumblebee now, I think of "Autobots, it's MORHIN' TIME!!"

    Also, his list of characters of who he voiced is MASSIVE. Johnny Yong Bosch

    He also played Nero in Devil May Cry 4, so I keep imagining Bumblebee saying something like this:

    "Now I know what this Plasma Cannon was made for... sending guys like you back to The Pit!"

    No wonder

    I just bought Gankutsuou in english and I've watched a few eps of Eureka Seven and all of Karas. When I first heard Bumblebee speak in this game my mind went crazy trying to figure out who it was.

    Oh man, it has been so long since Power Rangers that I didn't even remember him as the Black Ranger. I think it's cool though. BB's cred just went up for me. I already thought his voice actor was amazing for the character but to add this level of cool to it. Heck I even own the original movie on VHS. 30 seconds and I can find it. Give me 5 minutes and I can pull his Zord out of storage. (I was a rather large Power Rangers fan when it debuted)

    But I completely know how the original poster feels. Every time I hear Veronica Taylor I hear Amelia Wil Tesla Seyruun and I hear her a lot.

    Yeah, I noticed that Bumblebee sounds just like Ichigo. Especially when he attacks with his sword (same warcry from Bleach).

    Not only that...but does anyone notice that Air Raid sounds just like Jūshirō Ukitake?

    Once you go black, you can always go yellow.

    Personally I'm more of a Code Geass anime fan than a Bleach fan so in my head it was like this:

    Starscream: Prepare to die AUTOBOT SCUM!!!!

    Bumblebee: (in an incredibly calm and smarmy voice) Your wrong Starscream, the only ones who should kill are those who are prepared to be killed!

    Starscream: wait,wha-(geassed)

    Bumblebee: Lelouch Vi Britannia commands you to....DIE!!!!

    I kept thinking that Bumblebee would use the geass or something

    First thing i said when I heard bumblebee's voice was "All Hail Lelouch!....wait where's lelouch?"

    I do think that Johnny did a spectacular job with voicing Bumblebee though
