posted on by Adriana Hazra
Crunchyroll announced on Friday that it will stream TOHO and CG studio Orange's (BEASTARS, Land of the Lustrous) new anime based on Yasuhiro Nightow's Trigun manga titled Trigun Stampede in India. The company will also simulcast the anime in North America, Central America, South America, Europe, Africa, Oceania, the Middle East, CIS, the Philippines, Singapore, Pakistan, Bhutan, Sri Lanka, Bangladesh, and Nepal in 2023.
Madhouse's original television anime adaptation aired for 26 episodes in Japan in 1998. The series is now streaming on Crunchyroll following Sony's Funimation Global Group's acquisition of Crunchyroll from AT&T.
The Trigun anime adapts Yasuhiro Nightow's manga of the same name. The story follows the misadventures of Vash the Stampede, a gunman on the lam with a "60 billion double dollar" bounty on his head. Vash earned his "Stampede" nickname thanks to the destruction that zealous bounty hunters wreak on any town he visits.
The Trigun: Badlands Rumble anime film debuted in April 2010 and was the first new Trigun animation in over a decade. The anime's world premiere was at Sakura-Con in April 2010, although the anime Studio Madhouse's plans for the project date back to 2005.
Based on a story by original manga creator Nightow and director Satoshi Nishimura, the film follows Vash the Stampede and the outlaw Gasback in a period before the original anime's finale. Vash journeys to a town surrounded by quicksand where Gasback has a conflict with the mayor. As the story unfolds, Vash discovers his actions 20 years ago incited the current troubles involving bounty hunters, bodyguards, and vendettas.
