The 1998 anime adaptation of Yasuhiro Nightow’s manga Trigun was mostly seen in the West on Cartoon Network’s Toonami block. The series follows gunslinger Vash the Stampede as he tries to stay peaceful despite the massive reward for his capture. “Trigun” is well-known for its blend of comedy, action, and science fiction inside a polished Western setting.
When is the Release Date for Trigun Stampede?
Though the release date of “Trigun Stampede” has not yet been determined, the year in which it will air has been set. As luck would have it, supporters won’t have to hold out for too long. According to Crunchyroll, the return of the blond gunslinger will take place in 2023, as evidenced by a major graphic showing Vash firing his rifle in an ungainly fashion.
The fact that “Trigun Stampede” has found a warm home with Crunchyroll should also reassure Western viewers. The business also revealed that the new show would be available to watch online right after it premiered in Japan. In contrast to the first two anime adaptations, “Trigun Stampede” will premiere worldwide at the same time.
That’s arguably the smartest thing to do, seeing as how everything we know about the upcoming anime suggests it won’t be anything like Studio Madhouse’s classic adaptation of the manga. In the guise of director Kenji Muto, “Trigun Stampede” injects the series with some much-needed new ideas. Muto, who has previously directed episodes of “Beastars” and “Land of the Lustrous,” makes his directorial debut with “Trigun Stampede,” according to Anime News Network.
Perhaps this is the first time he has been put in control of something from start to finish. While “Trigun Stampede” will have certain flaws, Muto is confident that the dynamic duo of Vash and his brother Knives, as well as the manga’s beautiful action, will carry over (via Comic Book).
Is There a Official Trailer for Trigun Stampede?
Even though “Trigun Stampede” won’t be out for a bit, an official trailer has given us our first look. Moreover, there is quite a lot to dissect in a short teaser that runs for little over a minute. It shows a young Vash and Knives with their mentor Rem, who puts them in an escape pod.
The trailer then cuts between little Vash and the armed hero we know, but both versions of Vash are drastically altered. Studio Orange’s 3D CG animation keeps the blond hair, huge orange eyeglasses, and red jacket, but updates them with new details and animation techniques. In an interview with Crunchyroll, “Trigun Stampede” producer Kiyotaka Waki said that the team was given free reign to do whatever they wanted with the 3D CG because previous anime adaptations of Nightow’s manga were so well received.
Many anime watchers still have strong feelings about the usage of computer animation in the medium. Despite this, studios like Polygon have often commended Studio Orange for their CG animation prowess on “Beastars.” The teaser for “Trigun Stampede” reveals the studio is putting up their best effort, with impressively nuanced face expressions.
However, issues and worries regarding the tone of “Trigun Stampede” are raised by the trailer. Although the plot in the original adaptations could be somewhat serious, “Trigun” also managed to give a surprising amount of comedic relief. The trailer has an intense atmosphere and some action, but no humour. We’ll have to wait for further details to discover if this new endeavor has a sense of humor.
Is Trigun Stampede a continuation?
If you ask Yasuhiro Nightow, this is not a return. The creator of “Trigun” stated that “Trigun Stampede” is not a continuation, as reported by Anime News Network. It could provide some insight into the new anime’s plot, given that the teaser doesn’t suggest the show is a direct sequel to the original. To be more precise, “Trigun Stampede” is a retelling. After all, No Man’s Land is where Vash and Knives first appear in the teaser. That happens considerably later in the manga and the prior anime. Comic Book quotes Muto as saying, “Trigun Stampede” is a reboot, but it retains the essential qualities that made the original so great.
This also means that we do not yet have any information about how the story of Vash will be portrayed. What this implies for other beloved series characters like Meryl Stryfe, Milly Thompson, and Wolfwood is also unclear.

One can tell that the project intends to differentiate itself from similar efforts. And with “Trigun Stampede” being a relaunched project, there are bound to be many twists and turns. In a fortunate turn of events, Nightow has been familiar with the project and script from the start, providing insightful criticism when it was called for (via Anime News Network). So it seems that our Humanoid Typhoon has undergone some changes, yet some features may remain the same.
The 2010 anime film “Trigun: Badlands Rumble” was the last time Vash’s exploits were depicted in animated form. Since then, we had assumed that the hero’s legacy would be limited to repeats and Nightow’s critically praised manga. The Anime Expo (via Crunchyroll) has dropped the news that Vash will be appearing in a new anime series, which comes as a surprise to fans. Donuts will be served as we discuss the information we have thus far about “Trigun Stampede.”
