Crunchyroll announces reboot of space western Trigun

I am confused. I am playing Final Fantasy VIIand my partner is playing Resident Evil 4† My ears perk up when I hear the familiar and unmistakable heavy metal guitar chords of this song as Trigun appears on the television.

I have no idea what year it is.

late last night, Crunchy roll announced that a new one Trigun anime series is in the works and it looks like 2023 will be the year of maximum millennial nostalgia bait.

the new show, Trigun Stampedewill be produced and animated by Orange, the same studio that worked on the “what if” zootopia but hornier “anime, beastars† During his time on American television, Trigun was hugely popular and matched nicely with the space western aesthetic of Cowboy Bebop and Outlaw Star while also serving as an early example of a good English dub.

Written by Yasuhiro Nightow, Trigun was released as a manga in 1995 and followed the exploits of Vash the Stampede, a mysterious yet sweet lone gunman who roams an alien planet reminiscent of the Wild West. In 1998, the manga was turned into an anime and, like many shōnen anime of the late ’90s, it made its way onto the Adult Swim programming block in 2000. For Vash’s English voice, the relatively unknown Johnny Yong Bosch was cast in his first voice acting gig that would eventually catapult him to English voice acting royalty, performing as BleachIchigo Kurosaki, Code Geass‘ Lelouch Lamperouge, and more. (Although my older millennials will remember him from his time as a Power Ranger.)

Details about the show itself were scarce, but there’s a chance we’ll find out more during a Trigun Stampede panel at Anime Expo on July 2.

I’m definitely looking forward to getting some”love and peacein 2023. The galaxy desperately needs it.
