Toho and Crunchyroll have announced Trigun Stampede, a new series coming in 2023 based on the beloved classic anime and manga Trigun.
Trigun Stampede is produced by BEASTARS, Godzilla Singular Point, and Land of the Lustrous’ Orange studio with “all-new staff and a cast,” and Crunchyroll will simultaneously stream the new anime from Japan to over 200 countries around the world.
For those unfamiliar, Trigun was originally a Japanese manga series by Yasuhiro Nightow that ran from 1995 to 1997. In 1998, it was turned into an anime series of the same name.
The anime consisted of 26 episodes which first aired on TV Tokyo from April to September 1998. The series would come to North America soon after and make its way to Cartoon Network’s Adult Swim in 2003.
In 2010, a feature film titled Trigun: Badlands Rumble was released and continued the adventures of Vash the Stampede.
More information about Trigun Stampede will be shared at Anime Expo 2022 on Saturday, July 2 at 8 p.m. PT / 11 p.m. ET. Nightow will be on the panel alongside Kouji Tajima (designer), Kiyotaka Waki (producer, Orange), Yoshihiro Watanabe (producer, Orange), and Katsuhiro Takei (producer, Toho).
We called Vash one of the greatest anime characters of all time, saying “Although Vash is often portrayed as a childish goofball, in reality he is a very complex and tortured character who does his best to save people who never even know what he did for them.”
Trigun also received an honorable mention in our list of the 25 best anime series of all time.
