It's been quite a few years since Trigun first hit the scene within the world of anime, with the exploits of Vash the Stampede standing alongside the likes of Spike Spiegel and Gene Starwind. Now, this year's Anime Expo shared the first look at the animation style for Studio Orange's new prequel series, giving us a very different look at a younger Vash along with a new computer generated animation style. With these big changes, fans have not been shy about sharing their thoughts across the board, good or bad.
If you haven't had the opportunity to check out the latest trailer for Trigun Stampede, you can catch it below, giving us a new take on Vash when he only had a bounty of 6 million double dollars hanging over his head and hadn't fully formed his reputation as a whirlwind of humor and bullet casings:
What do you think of Vash's new look? Feel free to let us know in the comments or hit me up directly on Twitter @EVComedy to talk all things comics, anime, and the world of Trigun.

TRIGUN STAMPEDE looks absolutely wonderful.
I said it a few hours before, ORANGE is going to revolutionize the animation industry.
The CG is out of this world, it doesn't make sense how good it looks and the art direction is sublime. pic.twitter.com/CbMuaboSzQ— !!! (@r0nd0_1986) July 3, 2022
Vash's new design for Trigun Stampede is not only a near-complete betrayal of his base design sense, but is also woefully boring. In this thread im going to explain why, how Vash has looked over the years, and why the show may be fine anyway. pic.twitter.com/uGWQ2XwA50— TeeHallums (@TeeHallums) July 3, 2022
