In a unique turn of events, the age-old classic Trigun is set to make a comeback after 25 Years. Toho and Crunchyroll announced the collaboration on 17th June, where the announcement confirmed the release date to be somewhere in 2023.
The announcement also confirmed the animation studio for the upcoming reboot. Orange, the studio behind BEASTARS, Godzilla Singular Point, Land of the Lustrous' and more, is tasked with directing Trigun Stampede.
Crunchyroll will be simulcasting the series in more than 200 countries in 2023 from Japan.
Vash the Stampede is the man with a $60,000,000,000 bounty on his head. He's a ruthless villain who annihilates all opponents and flattens entire cities for fun, earning him the moniker "The Humanoid Typhoon." He leaves a trail of death and destruction wherever he goes, and anyone who even makes eye contact with him is doomed, according to rumors. Vash is a huge softie who claims to have never killed anyone and avoids violence at all costs.
Vash traverses Gunsmoke with his crazy doughnut obsession and buffoonish attitude in tow, all the while being pursued by two insurance agents, Meryl Stryfe and Milly Thompson, who try to minimize his impact on the public. When a group of legendary assassins is summoned to kill the trio, their misadventures quickly become life-or-death situations. Vash's painful past will be revealed, and his morality and principles will be tested to the limit.
