The Trigun Stampede anime is based on the manga, written and drawn by Yasuhiro Nightow, which was published in 1995. Studio Madhouse picked up the manga for an anime adaptation which was released in 1998. The anime series became popular in the United States after airing on Cartoon Network’s Adult Swim block in 2000s.

- Yoshitsugu Matsuoka as Vash the Stampede
- Junya Ikeda as Knives Millions
- Tomoyo Kurosawa as Young Vash

Kenji Mutou (BEASTARS, HELLO WORLD) is directing the anime at Studio Orange. The character design and animation direction will be done by Kouji Tajima.
“Vash the Stampede” is a man whose head is priced at $60 billion. The reason, he is a ruthless villain who destroys everyone who opposes him and crushes entire cities for fun, earning the title of “The Human Hurricane”. He leaves a trail of death and destruction wherever he goes, and anyone can be practically left for dead if they just happen to make contact with him, or so the rumors say. In reality, Vash claims never to have killed and avoids violence at any cost.
With his crazy donut obsession and buffoonish attitude, Vash traverses the wastelands of the planet Gunsmoke, while being followed by two agents named Meryl Stryfe and Milly Thompson, who try to minimize his social impact. But soon, Vash’s misadventures evolve into life-or-death situations as a group of legendary assassins are summoned to bring suffering to the trio.
