“The $$60 billion Man” Vash the Stampede is Back! “Trigun: The Movie” to Come Out in 2010
(This article was originally posted in Japanese at 16:55 Oct. 09, 2009)
Trigun is a popular manga series by Yasuhiro Nightow depicting the adventure and misadventures of wandering gunman Vash the Stampede with a $$60,000,000,000(sixty billion double dollar) bounty on his head. Despite being also known as "The Humanoid Typhoon" due to the destruction which surrounds him, Vash is a jovial, lighthearted pacifist with the unlikely motto of "Love and Peace".
Trigun was adapted to a TV anime series by Madhouse in 1998. Twelve years on, a much-awaited feature film is to hit the theatres in Spring, 2010. A trailer first came out at the Anime Expo convention in July, 2009, and finally, the official website opened.
Read on for details and pics.
