TRIGUN STAMPEDE is based on the original Trigun manga by Yasuhiro Nightow. The manga was adapted into anime in 1998 by Madhouse, which aired from April to September of that year. Madhouse also produced an anime film, Trigun: Badlands Rumble, which is set twenty years before the events of the 1998 series released in 2010.
TRIGUN STAMPEDE is produced by CG Studio Orange and debuted on January 7, 2023, on Crunchyroll. It is currently being dubbed in English and streamed on Crunchyroll.

The new series also marks the return of Johnny Yong Bosch as Vash the Stampede, who also voiced him in the 1998 series at the beginning of his career. Here’s Johnny to explain it all,
