Trigun was a post-apocalyptic action manga created by Yasuhiro Nightow and serialized by the Tokyo-based publisher Shōnen Gahōsha. The manga ran from 1995 to 1997 and was adapted into an anime that was released in 1998 by the Japanese animation studio Madhouse.
In 2022, Studio Orange announced they were doing a remake of the series directed by Kenji Mutō. They premiered it in January 2023 with both Crunchyroll and Hulu streaming it, but the former announced they were producing an English dub.

MyAnimeList describes the synopsis as follows,
“Vash the Stampede’s a joyful gunslinging pacifist, so why does he have a $$6 million bounty on his head? That’s what’s puzzling rookie reporter Meryl Stryfe and her jaded veteran partner when looking into the vigilante only to find someone who hates blood. But their investigation turns out to uncover something heinous—his evil twin brother, Millions Knives.”
Nightow created a sequel manga titled ‘Trigun Maximum’ that ran from 1997 to 2007 published by Shōnen Gahōsha and released in the United States by Dark Horse Comics.
The original manga was previously released by the Japanese publisher Tokuma Shoten.
