The popular Trigun anime is getting a fresh start on Crunchyroll.
Last Friday, the streaming service made the official announcement that a new version of the iconic space western anime series would be available to subscribers.
The Japanese animation company Orange, famed for their work on Beastars, Godzilla: Singular Point, and Land of Lustrous, will develop and animate the next Trigun series, titled Trigun Stampede.
Trigun Stampede, which will premiere on Crunchyroll in 2023, will have a brand new team and cast. Subscribers in the Americas (North, South, Central, and Caribbean), Europe, Africa, Oceania, the Middle East, the CIS countries, Southeast Asia (Philippines, Singapore, Malaysia, Indonesia, and the Philippines), South Asia (India, Pakistan, Bhutan, Sri Lanka, Bangladesh, and Nepal), and East Asia (Korea) will be able to stream it.
On Sunday, July 2 at 8 p.m. Eastern Time, the Platinum Ballroom of the JW Marriott Hotel in Los Angeles will host the Trigun Stampede series panel at Anime Expo 2022. Yasuhiro Nightow, Kouji Tajima, Kiyotaka Waki, Yoshihiro Watanabe, and Katsuya Takei are all involved in making the series.
How Would You Describe the Plot of the Original Trigun Anime?
The original Trigun anime is based on the manga of the same name, and it follows the exploits of Vash the Stampede, a mysterious yet lovely lone-gunman who wanders the Wild West-like extraterrestrial planet of No Man’s Land. As the story unfolds, Vash learns more about his past while fighting off bounty hunters after the enormous reward on his head.

The 24-episode anime series debuted in 1998 on TV Tokyo and later moved to the Adult Swim channel on Cartoon Network in 2000. The Verge claims that Trigun’s run on Adult Swim made it one of the most-watched anime shows in the United States.
In the English dub of the show, Johnny Yong Bosch provided the voice of Vash. Since his initial voice-acting role in the anime, Bosch has gone on to portray such notable characters as Ichigo Kurosaki in Bleach and Lelouch Lamperouge in Code Geass.
In April of 2010, the Japanese premiere of Trigun: Badlands Rumble, an anime feature film, took place.

Where You Can Watch the First Trigun Anime?
Trigun, both the anime and the movie, are available for streaming in the United States on Hulu(Instagram) and Crunchyroll/Funimation, respectively.
In the past, we established that Trigun originated as a manga. It was first serialized between 1995 and 1997 in Monthly Shonen Captain, a shounen manga magazine published by Tokuma Shoten. Trigun Maximum ran in Shonen Gahosh’s seinen manga magazine Young King OURs from 1997 to 2007 after the original magazine folded.
The New Anime Series ‘Trigun Stampede’ Brings Back
Vash the Stampede, popularly known as “The Humanoid Typhoon,” is a wanted gunslinger on the planet Gunsmoke after the destruction of Third City, also known as the July disaster.
The TRIGUN anime series was created by Yasuhiro Nightow and first aired in 1998. While fighting off the Gung-Ho-Guns, Vash and Nicholas D. Wolfwood are on the hunt for Vash’s twin brother, Knives Millions, who has a huge bounty on his head.
We don’t know much about how this new series will be different, but we do know that it will be made by Orange (who made BEASTARS and Godzilla Singular Point) with a brand-new staff and cast and that Crunchyroll will stream it.
There Is a Trigun CG Remake in the Works
In this day and age, anime is a staple in most households. Even while fans no longer have to wait weeks to download fan subs so they can catch up on their favorite shows, it doesn’t mean they aren’t as dedicated as they were back then.
I’d go so far as to say that newer generations of anime fans, empowered by platforms like Crunchyroll, could end up outspending the original generation in the long term. There is so much anime out there, in so many different styles, that it would be possible to subsist solely on Japanese cartoons.

However, I’ve seen that newer fans tend to look down on the original series on which their fandom was built. Far too often, anime fans dismiss classic programs as unwatchable or overhyped unless the show has endured multiple decades (like Dragonball, One Piece, or Hunter X Hunter).
With regard to the former, I believe that modern fans have developed a strong dislike for traditionally-styled artwork. Fans’ opinions often shift when a beloved show is given a modern makeover.
