Trigun Stampede has finally been revealing its first details to fans during Anime Expo this year, and part of these revelations include the new voice cast that will be at the center of the new take on the franchise. While Yasuhiro Nightow's original manga series came to an end decades ago along with its own TV anime series and feature film offerings, the franchise is going to be roaring back with a brand new CG animated take from the same studio behind Beastars, Studio Orange. This will introduce some new takes on the franchise as a whole, and it's pretty exciting as to what to expect.
Trigun Stampede was surprisingly announced to be in the works earlier this year, and the series took the stage during Anime Expo to share the first real details ahead of the new anime's release next year. This included the confirmation for the voice cast for the series which for now includes the likes of Yoshitsugu Matsuoka (Demon Slayer's Inosuke) as Vash the Stampede, Tomoyo Kurosawa (Land of the Lustrous) as Young Vash, Junya Ikeda (Gokai Silver in Kaizoku Sentai Gokaiger) as Knives Millions, Yumiri Hanamori (Laid-Back Camp) as Young Knives, and Maaya Sakamoto (Echidna in Re:Zero -Starting Life in Another World-) as Rem Saverem.
Including original series creator Yasuhiro Nightow in the creative mix, Trigun Stampede will be directed by Kenji Muto at Studio Orange with Kouji Tajima will be handling the character and concept designs. The rest of the staff has yet to be confirmed as of this writing, nor has there been a more concrete release date revealed outside of its current 2023 release window. But that also means there's plenty of time to get acquainted with the classic franchise before this reboot.
If you wanted to go back and check out the original Trigun anime run, you can find the series streaming with Crunchyroll. They tease the franchise as such, "Vash the Stampede is a wanted gunslinger with a habit of turning entire towns into rubble. His path of destruction reaches across the wastelands of a desert planet. Oddly enough, for such an infamous outlaw, there's no proof he's ever taken a life. In fact, he's a pacifist who's more doofus than desperado. There's definitely a whole lot more to Vash than his reputation lets on."
