The ANN Aftershow
Trigun Stampede Tackles Religion

by Lynzee Loveridge & James Beckett,

Vash and the crew head to a new location where Vash's past is once again back to bite him. In a town where children are sacrificed to a god, Vash made the daring promise to save one boy...and failed. Also, let's check in on our favorite assassin duo with Buddy Daddies!

This week's news: One-Punch Man is coming to Overwatch 2 and everything you need to know about the new season of Demon Slayer!

The ANN After Show streams live on YouTube, Facebook, and Twitter Spaces on Tuesday at 6pm PT/9pm ET. You can listen to the podcast version on Mondays on Spotify, Apple Music, and wherever you listen to your favorite podcasts. The ANN After Show is part of the BLEAV Network.
