Toho and Crunchyroll have announced Trigun Stampede, a new series arriving in 2023 that is based on the beloved classic anime and manga Trigun.
Trigun Stampede is being produced by BEASTARS, Godzilla Singular Point, and Land of the Lustrous’ studio Orange with an ‘all-new staff and cast,’ and Crunchyroll will be simulcasting the new anime from Japan in more than 200 countries around the world.
For those unfamiliar, Trigun was originally a Japanese manga series from 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 that first aired on TV Tokyo from April to September 1998. The series would come to North America shortly after and it would make its way to Cartoon Network’s Adult Swim in 2003.
In 2010, a feature film called Trigun: Badlands Rumble was released and continued the adventures of Vash the Stampede.
More info on Trigun Stampede will be shared at Anime Expo 2022 on Saturday, July 2, at 8pm PT/11pm ET. Nightow will be part of 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’s a very complex and tortured character who is doing his best to save people who never even know what he’s done for them.”
Trigun was also given an honorable mention nod in our list of the top 25 best anime series of all time.
