Aniplex USA has added a new video to its YouTube Channel that gives us a glimpse of one of the lead roles and the man behind it. Johnny Yong Bosch has grabbed the role of Izaya Orihara and he's the one to kick off the new series of videos where he gets to talk about the Durarara!! anime series and the character he plays, a bit of the approach to it as well as seeing some animation and how Izaya sounds with Bosch taking on the character.
