Studio Orange and TOHO animation have released the second trailer for the new Trigun series, giving us a bit of a better idea on what the animation will be like, as well as more of the characters we will be seeing (and not seeing) in the series set to air next year.

Noticeably absent is the character Milly Thompson, who seems to have been replaced by a character named… Roberto De Niro? He doesn’t seem to have been a character from any of the three Trigun manga series nor the original anime, so we will just have to wait and see if Milly Thompson shows up at any point in Trigun Stampede.

Vash the Stampede: Yoshitsugu Matsuoka
