Bored to death of waiting, yet? Well, who can blame you... For almost two years now, there have been virtually no updates on the status of the much-doubted Trigun The Movie
, other than vague references; and an endless stream of comments to our report
from early 2008 (a misplaced *yawn*
can work wonders). Well, you won't have to hold your breath much longer, because the project has finally received a more tangible release timeframe.
Thanks to the recently opened website
, the film's Japanese premiere is now officially - albeit still not precisely - set for spring 2010. And thanks to ANN
's translation, fans who've been wondering about its enigmatic story can finally put their curiosity to rest.
"The story is set in Makka, a town surrounded by quicksand. With rumors spreading that the legendary robber Gasback has his sights set on the town, the mayor Kepler has brought together bounty-hunters to protect the town. These bounty hunters have been following Gasback from town to town in hopes of bagging the prize. Meryl and Milly, two characters previously seen in Yasuhiro Nightow's manga and the later television anime series, have come to town to assess the situation as insurance agents, but are shocked by this turn of events. Moreover, Vash the Stampede is also in town, along with the female bounty hunter Ameria and the fan-favorite character Wolfwood."
Not sure if these tiny shots above are from the movie or the classic anime series (which I still can't find the time, nor the will to watch). They were just lying around aimlessly on the Trigun movie's website, so... yeah, I'll go look for another old news to post.
