Trigun Stampede Will Share First Details at Anime Expo

Yasuhiro Nightow’s original manga franchise, Trigun, will be returning with a brand new anime project, and it turns out that the first real details for the upcoming Trigun Stampede will be shared during a special panel for the anime’s studio at Anime Expo next month. Following a mysterious tweet teasing a very familiar sixty billion double dollar bounty, it was confirmed that Vash the Stampede would soon be making a return to anime with a brand new project produced by anime studio Orange, the studio behind such franchises as Beastars, Land of the Lustrous, and Godzilla Singular Point.

Along with announcing the fact that they have acquired the license for a worldwide release, Crunchyroll has also revealed that the first details for Trigun Stampede will be officially revealed during Orange’s panel at Anime Expo. Taking place on Saturday, July 2 at 8pm PT at the JW Marriott Hotel in Los Angeles during Anime Expo, this series was not listed on the original details for Orange’s plans for the expo so now fans attending the convention will definitely want to keep an eye out for this one.

Attending the Anime Expo 2022 for Trigun Stampede will be original series creator Yasuhiro Nightow, designer Kouji Tajima, studio Orange producers Kiyotaka Waki and Yoshihiro Watanabe, and Toho producer Katsuhiro Takei. They are teased to be revealing the first details for the new project along with giving behind-the-scenes information about its production. There are many things still up in the air as to what to expect from this new take on the classic anime franchise, so this will definitely be a game changer.

It’s currently unclear as of this writing as to what kind of project this will actually be as well. It’s been confirmed to be a new series, but it’s unclear as to whether or not it will be treated as a reboot or potential sequel to the classic anime adaptation from the late 90s. This original anime adaptation notably featured its own original ideas, and the manga itself went on to become a whole new kind of release with the updated Trigun Maximum providing much more potential material to cover.

Thankfully it won’t be too long until we find out more as Trigun Stampede is schedule for a release next year. How are you feeling about Trigun getting a new anime project soon?
