A remake of Trigun, one of the most beloved anime series of the late 1990s, was recently revealed. Unexpectedly, the first glimpse at this new sci-fi western arrived fairly quickly as the first trailer was unveiled at Anime Expo in Los Angeles. Along with the trailer, key visuals and cast details were also revealed.
The news that the franchise would return with a fully computer-generated animated series from Studio Orange, the production firm behind Land of the Lustrous, Beastars, and many more, surprised the fans earlier this year.
Stampede is done in a modern CG art style in contrast to the prior 1998 series. Vash the Stampede, a fugitive gunman with a 60 billion double dollar bounty on his head, is followed through his misadventures throughout the story. Vash acquired the nickname Stampede due to the destruction that zealous bounty hunters cause in any town he visits.
The anime will star Yoshitsugu Matsuoka as Vash the Stampede, Junya Ikeda as Knives Millions, Tomoyo Kurosawa as young Vash, Yumiri Hanamori as young Knives, and Maaya Sakamoto as Rem Saverem. Directed by Kenji Muto, the series is created by Yasuhiro Nightow. The concept design and character concept are looked after by Kouji Tajima.
From 1995 to 1997, the first Trigun manga appeared in Monthly Shonen Champion, and from 1997 to 2007 the sequel, Trigun Maximum, appeared in Young King OURS. The English version of the series was published by Dark Horse. The movie Trigun: Badlands Rumble was released in 2010, while the first Madhouse-produced anime series debuted in 1998. When the series premieres in 2023, Trigun Stampede will be available to stream on Crunchyroll worldwide, excluding Asia, but including the Philippines, Singapore, India, Pakistan, Bhutan, Sri Lanka, Bangladesh, Nepal, Kazakhstan, and Kyrgyzstan.
