Trigun Stampede has revealed some awesome new concept art showcasing a fresh take on Vash the Stampede ahead of the anime’s upcoming premiere.
Even though the popular action manga series by Yasuhiro Nightow has had its anime adaptation in the past, the franchise is getting ready for another comeback with a brand-new anime adaptation that will be radically different from what came before. Trigun Stampede, a fully CGI series produced by the same company as BEASTARS, has been slowly but surely teasing more and more content for the upcoming new spin on the Western genre.
The new Trigun Stampede concept art
Trigun Stampede is currently in development. The series has been transparent with its audience about showcasing some of the coolest behind-the-scenes glimpses as it prepares for its full release. Trigun Stampede’s official Twitter account has recently posted a promotional image of the show’s protagonist Vash exploring a futuristic city under a scorching sun.
Notably, the release window has been confirmed by the words “2023 New Original Animation” that appear over the image beneath the show’s title.
Trigun Stampede is presently scheduled for release early next year, but no specific release date has been set. Yasuhiro Nightow, the author of the original Trigun Stampede manga, will be involved in the creative process with the new series as it produces a unique perspective on the original series. Kenji Mutou is directing the new series at Studio Orange, with Kouji Tajima handling the character and concept designs. The majority of the cast has already been confirmed, with further additions to come.
Trigun Stampede manga and anime adaptation
The original science fiction/western manga by Yasuhiro Nightow ran in Tokuma Shoten’s Monthly Shounen Captain from April 1995 to January 1997. The Trigun Maximum follow-up series was serialized in Shounen Gahousha’s Young King OURs from October 1997 to March 2007. The narrative centers on notorious shooter Vash the Stampede. Vash is revealed to be a goofball (although one with a troubled background) who tries to avoid murdering his foes, contrary to the rumors portraying him as a ruthless, bloodthirsty devil.
The manga got its first anime adaptation in 1998. The 26-episode animated television series, produced by Madhouse (The Vampire Dies in No Time), Satoshi Nishimura (Dragon Ball Z: Dead Zone), and Yosuke Kuroda (Birdie Wing: Golf Girls’ Story), amassed a sizable and devoted fan base.
In the original Japanese version of Trigun, Hiromi Tsuru (Yu-Gi-Oh! 3D: Bonds Beyond Time) voiced Meryl Stryfe, Satsuki Yukino (Yashahime: Princess Half-Demon) voiced Milly Thompson, and Masaya Onosaka (The Prince of Tennis) provided the voice for Vash the Stampede. In the English dub, Vash, Meryl, and Milly are played by Johnny Yong Bosch (Code Geass: Lelouch of the Rebellion), Dorothy Melendrez (Komi Can’t Communication), and Lia Sargent (Cowboy Bebop).
