Trigun is steadily preparing to return with an all-new take on the classic franchise debuting next year, and the anime is now one step closer to that premiere with the reveal of some key additions to the new voice cast! Yasuhiro Nightow’s classic action series is one of many franchises to return with new reboots in recent years, but unlike a few others, this latest reboot will be dramatically different from the first anime that premiered decades ago. This time around, the series will feature a fully 3DCG animated world with new versions of the original characters.
It takes place at an earlier point in the story, Trigun stampede will feature a new voice cast tapping into new versions of the older characters from the first series.
