Kenji Muto is directing Trigun: Stampede, with Koji Tajima on character concepts. The series is based on Yasuhiro Nightow’s manga series, first serialized in Tokuma Shoten’s shonen manga magazine Monthly Shonen Captain from April 1995 to January 1997. The manga was later moved to Shonen Gahosha’s seinen manga magazine Young King OURs, under the title Trigun Maximum, where it stayed from October 1997 to March 2007.
Yasuhiro Nightow also shared a Vash illustration that he drew for Shonen Gahosha magazine:
Dark Horse licensed the manga in English and describes the plot 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!
MADHOUSE animated the first anime adaptation of Trigun – it aired in 1988 and had 26 episodes. The same studio also worked on Trigun: Badlands Rumble movie from 2010.
