For the Toonami generation Vash the Stampede means a lot, and now in 2023, fans of the series are getting a new original animation entitled TRIGUN STAMPEDE. TRIGUN will be reborn as a new anime series in 2023, produced by Orange (BEASTARS) with an all-new staff and cast. Crunchyroll will simulcast the series from Japan in more than 200 countries and territories around the world. If you’re unfamiliar, Orange Animation studio in Japan produced BEASTARS, Godzilla Singular Point and Land of The Lustrous, and is led by CEO/Chief Animator, Eiji Inomoto.
TRIGUN is a popular action manga series by Yasuhiro Nightow that follows the story of Vash the Stampede, a legendary gunman and a pacifist with a bounty on his head.
