One of the most famous Shonen anime series that was introduced to fans in the 90’s is undoubtedly Trigun. The post-apocalyptic series focused on Vash the Stampede’s adventures has a worldwide fan-base, and it’s all because of all the effort the animation studio put to create the anime, the refreshing plot and the well-developed characters.
Well, the series has been missing for a while and seems like the longing is ready to end as one Twitter outlet @Spanku_u reports that Trigun franchise is coming back with a new anime adaptation.
Trigun is a Japanese manga series composed and showed by Yasuhiro Nightow. The series was serialized in Tokuma Shoten’s shōnen manga magazine Monthly Shōnen Captain from April 1995 to January 1997, when the magazine stopped its distribution, and its chapters were gathered in three tankōbon volumes. The series proceeded with its distribution 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 gathered the Trigun Maximum chapters in fourteen volumes.
Set on the imaginary planet known as No Man’s Land, the plot follows Vash the Stampede, a renowned gunman who is continually battling bounty hunters trying to get the monstrous bounty on his head. As the story advances, Vash’s past is investigated. Trigun started from Nightow’s interest with Western motion pictures. Nightow maintained that Vash should be unique in relation to cowpokes in Western motion pictures by abstaining from killing foes and on second thought investigating the characters associated with every story arc.
Trigun was adjusted into a 26 episode anime TV series by the successful animation studio Madhouse. It broadcasted on TV Tokyo from April to September 1998. An anime film, Trigun: Badlands Rumble, debuted in Japan in April 2010.
