Crunchyroll has also announced that it will simulcast the anime once it was released "in more than 200 countries and territories around the world."

Excited fans of Trigun Stampede can know more about the upcoming anime in the upcoming Anime Expo that will happen on July 2 as Crunchyroll will host a panel there.

Panel guests will include manga creator Yasuhiro Nightow, designer Kouji Tajima (GANTZ:O character artist), Orange producers Kiyotaka Waki (Godzilla Singular Point) and Yoshihiro Watanabe (BEASTARS), and TOHO producer Katsuhiro Takei (your name.).

Set on the fictional planet known as No Man's Land, the plot follows Vash the Stampede, a famous gunman who is constantly fighting bounty hunters seeking to obtain the immense bounty on his head. As the narrative progresses, Vash's past is explored. Vash earned his "Stampede" nickname thanks to the destruction that zealous bounty hunters wreak on any town he visits.

Last Thursday, a new Twitter account under the username “@6MillionBounty” teased a new image for the anime. The image shows a torn Wild West-style wanted poster with a bounty of $$60,000,000,000.

In Yasuhiro Nightow's Trigun universe, the main character who has this kind of bounty is the main character himself, Vash the Stampede, who has received the nickname "The $$60,000,000,000 (sixty billion double dollar) Man."


Trigun was first serialized in Tokuma Shoten's shōnen manga magazine Monthly Shōnen Captain from April 1995 to January 1997, when the magazine ceased its publication; its chapters were collected in three tankōbon volumes. The series continued its publication in Shōnen Gahosha's seinen manga magazine Young King OURs, under the title Trigun Maximum, from October 1997 to March 2007. Shōnen Gahosha republished the Trigun chapters in two volumes, and collected the Trigun Maximum chapters in fourteen volumes.

Trigun was adapted into a twenty-six episode anime television series by Madhouse; it aired on TV Tokyo from April to September 1998. An anime feature film, Trigun: Badlands Rumble, premiered in Japan in April 2010. In North America, both manga series have been licensed by Dark Horse Comics. The anime series was first licensed by Geneon Entertainment and started broadcast in the United States, as part of Cartoon Network's Adult Swim programming block, in 2003; the series was later licensed by Funimation.
