CHATTANOOGA, TN – April 18, 2013 – Anime Blast Chattanooga is pleased to announce its newest guests for
2013. Voice actor and performer Johnny Yong Bosch and “edge rock” band Eyeshine will entertain attendees at
the Chattanooga Convention Center Nov. 8 – 10.

Joining them for the convention’s third year will be voice and on-camera actress Cherami Leigh, musical guest
Project: Leviathan, and Greg Wicker aka Greggo’s Game Shows.

Johnny Young 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 would later go on
and play the voices of Kaneda in “Akira,” 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,” Izaya in “Durarara” and Yukio in “Blue Exorcist.”

Johnny’s voice can also be heard in numerous video games. He voices the main character Nero in “Devil May
Cry 4 “and performed voice-over 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 Ginny. Check out our YouTube series to see what it’s like being in an
