In case you’re unfamiliar, Trigun is a manga series which serialized on Monthly Shōnen Captain from 1995 to 1997. The series received an anime adaptation which is considered by anime fans as one of the iconic shows from the 90s.
As for its story, the series’ premise is described as:
“On the forbidding desert world of Gunsmoke, a mysterious bounty hangs above the head of Vash the Stampede, and the gunslinging pacifist can’t seem to find a moment’s respite. Vash is no ordinary pistolero, packing a weapon capable of punching holes in a planet, which explains why the locals tremble at the very mention of his name. But sixty billion double dollars is no ordinary reward, and every trigger-happy psycho in creation is aiming to claim Vash dead or alive—preferably dead!”
The new Trigun anime series will release sometime in 2023. Crunchyroll is set to air the anime outside of Japan in the following countries/regions: North America, Central America, South America, Europe, Africa, Oceania, the Middle East, CIS, the Philippines, Singapore, India, Pakistan, Bhutan, Sri Lanka, Bangladesh, and Nepal.
