Although no longer a secret, considering that the Trigun animated movie was first announced a couple of years ago (but we'll play dumb, since we weren't around the webs back then), the first details about it appeared just now on the cover of volume 14 of the Trigun Maximum manga (thanks Heisei Democracy). For starters, here are some of the names working on this Trigun movie, as scribbled by HD.
"It will feature an original story developed by manga author Yasuhiro Nightow and director Nishimura Satoshi who collaborated with Nightow on the Trigun TV series and is also known for his work on the Hajime no Ippo anime. The script will be helmed by veteran anime writer Kobayashi Yasuko, with character designs from Yoshimura Takahiro."

Trigun The Movie is being animated by Madhouse (who also created the Trigun anime from... oh, about ten years ago), and it should see the light of the silver screen at some point in 2009, driven by the tagline "Vash vs. Wolfwood?! The familiar characters erupt on screen in an all-original Trigun story!". *Yawn*

yawn? Have you even read the manga? This is a series that's been in serialization for over a decade. geez at least give it some respect.
Stokkywrote on Apr 14, 2008 at 12:39
The fact alone that something is one-two decades old is hardly enough to earn our respect. And besides, I was only being indifferent. A disrespectful approach would've made for a much more juicier news...
Kaiouseiwrote on Apr 17, 2008 at 20:01
Trigun is an anime classic. It was a big hit when it came overseas in the first era of quality dubbed anime. The manga still holds a massive following in Japan, and a decent cult following here in America. It is an amazing series.

Only poor journalists would require being a bitch to turn big news into "juicy" news. This should be able to sell itself without acting like a twelve year old.

I have to agree that while being indifferent isn't as bad as being disrespectful you should be a bit more professional. Adding yawn to the end is just childish, it couldn't have been much more pathetic if you'd used a "NOT!" joke.
Stokkywrote on Apr 23, 2008 at 13:52
I was just yawning at that boring and bland PR tagline, actually. I'm pretty sick of those, and over-inflated press releases.

Over-inflated journalists aren't much better, I'm afraid. Perhaps you could lend your...talents...to the advertising. I suspect that it might, then, be worthy of such a flippant response.

stokky is an idiot, the movie is taking place before wolfwood dies, thats how he is in it. and even though they are on the same side doesnt mean they didnt have their arguments. anyone that reads the books or even watches the series can see that. on top of it all just because it says vash vs wolfwood doesnt mean they are fighting. they most likely mean they are but it could just be a movie about their difference in backgrounds.

Stokkywrote on May 24, 2008 at 15:30
Just some of it, enough to know it's not my kind of thing. But that's all, I wasn't saying it sucks or anything, never did. I simply fail to see how it can be considered to be one of the top animes ever.

(On the other hand, Higurashi 2 for example didn't even get a single Anime Reactor award, even though we hold it to be the-best-period of 2007, hence my distrust in "common sense")

Stokky... are you saying that only anime that you and your associates feel is worth watching deserves any recognition? Are we to believe that only your tastes are worthy of praise? What does common sense have anything to do with opinions on good anime? One of your favorites didn't get an award. So that means the anime fan base doesn't know what good anime is?
Rhodrywrote on Jun 4, 2008 at 20:46
Can't say i was amused by the childish yawn Stokky decided to throw on the end there. Trigun is an excellent anime, I wont say its the best i've seen, because in my view its not, but its definately in the top ten. Its earned the right to be labelled as one of the best anime of all time, its original, its funny and it is very well drawn. Anyone disputing that its a great anime or anyone belittling or insulting it needs to get a better pair of eyes.
Stokkywrote on Jun 6, 2008 at 17:00
"are you saying that only anime that you and your associates feel is worth watching deserves any recognition?"
> What I'm saying is only that kind of anime deserves our recognition. If you or others wish to praise different titles - be it Higurashi, Trigun, Naruto or whatever - be my guest. Just don't expect us to follow the herd. Or isn't it obvious enough we're inclined towards other kinds of animes?...

"So that means the anime fan base doesn't know what good anime is?"
If you insist on tackling this topic, than yes, I'd say the majority of the anime fan base doesn't know jack shit about good animes. There are obviously exceptions, otherwise we wouldn't be here.
anonymouswrote on Jun 10, 2008 at 07:35
I agree with Rhodry...doesnt that make this site seem a little naive? The first time I saw Trigun I took away from it more than I've ever taken from any series. Sure it's never won any awards, sure it should stop producing more story because thats where the plot spoils and becomes cliche, but Trigun is still a great anime worth watching and reading. Take Bleach and Naruto for an example. Both good in their first season but cliched and predictable towards the end. A good story never overstays its welcome.
anonymouswrote on Jun 15, 2008 at 20:36

Hmmm, I took great offense to the yawn and they way that you handle criticism Stokky. The whole way you've tackled the article makes it seem banal. If you are an anime news source (rather than an opinion blog) adding your own unprofessional remarks isn't good discourse. I'm going to be extremely reluctant to use this site again. Your lack of professionalism is appalling and if you intend to act as an expert site for anime information I suggest you step it up. Making judgments based on an anime you've never watched all the way through is also something I find troubling. I'm very disappointed with the way you handle your readers. Calling people who visit your site "bloody ignorant" is never a professional or impressive thing to do. If you take issue with me Stokky please email me I'd like to make sure we don't have a misunderstanding. Please pardon me, but I feel I also must say that jerks like you are the reason the rest of us get flack.

p.s. as for writing news without expressing an opinion... not gonna happen. We haven't been writing that way for the printed publications we work / worked on, and we sure as hell won't be writing that way for something we actually care about. Combining useful info with a personal touch can be done just fine.
anonymouswrote on Jul 1, 2008 at 17:35
Good news for trigun fans. Hope the movie gets to be well done (animation- and story- like). As Stokky pointed out the tagline is fail. I do believe that the manga is vastly superior to the anime interpretation.(@wolfwoodschick16 the anime and manga have nothing in common except names). And Stokky, personally, I don't mind that you give your opinion on things. I do mind if you try to pass your opinion as something that should be accepted by others. I also agree about the some of the fans not knowing their stuff.

PS: Can someone elaborate on why exactly NGE sucks? Is it the story you don't like? The animation? The characters? Both anime and manga?
Patuttewrote on Jul 6, 2008 at 07:00
Every time I read that tag it get's more and more pathetic. I would have put in a yawn after it as well. Oh well, not all PR people can be genuises. I'm not too sure if this excites me. I loved the series, definetly wish the Mangas would come out quicker. Vol 13 is scheduled for middle of November, so maybe we might get 14 by August next year, if were lucky. I'll definetly watch the movie ASAP, but I think I would rather see a live action movie, but I don't know that it can be done right. who would make the perfect Vash?

While I'm glad there's a Trigun movie coming out, I really hate movies set in the "past". I hope that they have found another way of bringing Wolfwood back rather than making a past movie that in no way actually forwards the story.

hmmmm, i kinda disagree of what the majority is saying of how great trigun as an anime. take into account the underlying philosophy in the story, it's kinda unrealistic to achieve, that's why i don't like vash's personality. anyway, regarding the movie, it seems that it was only intended for the hardcore fans because making a movie from a portion from the past story?
the only thing that i'll be curious on this is whether the art quality is the same or much better. (i admit it, trigun has decent art and the only reason that i'd be watching the movie is to see meryl again!!!)

Your kidding me. Is that actaully the Tagline? I REALLY hope they don't write a script around that. If Wolfwood is in the movie, then it's going to have nothing to do with the Storyline. Besides, there was already like 3 episodes where Vash fought Wolfwood. Please tell me that tagline is a joke, and that after 10 years they're not going to make a filler movie.

anonymouswrote on Jul 25, 2008 at 01:08
honestly, i find it depressing that its taking place before the show even ends. I mean, great idea to bring back wolfwood and do something but that could've been handled differently then movie format. The show is the first time wolfwood and vash meet (either that or its timeline errors they never really worked out) and that the movie is a story that wasn't good enough to be put in the show or something. Just because vash lived for over a 100 years doesn't mean that we have to go back and watch it. Lets watch something from the next 100. =)

Stokky, i believe your fighting a losing battle trying to justify everything you say. Plus your making people respect what you have to say less. I realize you haven't posted in awhile but thats just my "review".

Anime is anime, if your gonna try and review something, watch/read/listen to the whole thing, then give a review with your "personal touch". Dont try and go through a quarter and guess what the rest is...it ain't right.

But him yawning at the news has no bearing on how any one else sees it. Leave the dude alone. No matter what the stokky thinks of it, it's a classic anime with a huge following. That's all that matters. I'm sure there are popular shows that we couldn't care less about either. Let it go

Wrong, none of those warrant such high praise. The only other anime(s) besides Trigun that I would say warrant even a mention are Cowboy Bebop and maybe Samarai Champloo (MAYBE). Both Cowboy Bebop and Trigun are exceptionally well written shows, and I have yet to watch another one season wonder that even comes close to the level of satisfaction I got from watching these two.

Then again I haven't watched too many of the new animes that have been aired recently, but I suspect I'm not missing much.

Has it occurred to you that if the majority of people are reading your 'yawn' comment the wrong way, perhaps you need to work on adding clarity to your writing style rather than making fun of your readers for failing to read the commented explanation that your yawn was directed at the tag line rather than at Trigun in general? Wikipedia needs to pick better sources.

Of course most of the anime fan base doesn't know good animme. We get shitty anime in america these days. Don't get me wrong, I like bleach and naruto the manga, but the anime is horrible. Some of the voice actors are good, but the words are just..It sounds like someone copied and pasted the japanese into a free translation site on the internet pretty much. Dude, the only good anime we ever got were like in the nineties/early 2000's. (Stuff like Cowboy Bebop and Trigun.) Oh and I found a dvd set at hastings. But I didn't have much time to look around and it was only the last couple of episodes. Plus I dind't want anyone to see me shopping for anime....
Is the Trigun manga any good? Can't find it at the bookstore anyway...
Pokemewwrote on Sep 13, 2008 at 19:17
I would like to see how this movie is going to be... the Trigun anime is indeed, a really good anime, but it's horrible comparing to the Trigun manga! Not just the story (which I don't like the anime version), but the characters and they're design, mostly Vash.. (he looks like a broom...). I can't wait to see the movie, since it's my favorite manga and Vash is my favorite character!... hope he's not going to look like a broom again ...

And for Fooly Cooly: the manga is 10000000 times better than the anime, I recommend it! The story, the characters, the drawing style, etc, are one of the best! Yasuhiro Nightow knows how to make really good stuff!

The manags that originates an animee tend to be much much better than the anime, so, yeah ^^

Wow, these are a lot comments about one thing.

But I believe in personal opinion too, and just cause someone says something doesn't make it right or wrong, its just their view points. Im a big fan of Trigun and just because someone says something about that
good or bad, Im not going to jump down their throat's.

My only constructive comment would be is : Stokky, dont speak for the fan base and if they know what good animes are or arent, you havent met the millions of people who watch them so you cant say that they dont know what their talking about.
Seeing how popular anime's are Im pretty sure that people would have to watch them
,and the "good animes" need viewers too, A high percentage of viewers otherwise they wouldn't be famous...... they would be shin chan. (I hate that anime so much)
So please dont judge every person on what you have seen, we're all individuals and make our own decisions.

Saying Trigun is sub par is like saying Cowboy Bebop is sub par. Lemme guess, you only watched the first couple of episodes where it was goofy and said to hell with this. If that's the case I implore you to take a look at the later episodes where it really starts looking like a masterpiece and the goofiness in the beginning is understood.
anonymouswrote on Sep 19, 2008 at 06:42
Come on now guys. We should all get along. :(
I love Trigun, and I really can't wait for the movie to come out. I personally didn't like the yawn in the end, but the writer said that that it wasn't even meant for Trigun, so why get all upset about it? Sure, we all have opinions, doesn't mean you have to get all mad at someone else just for saying yawn at the end of a review, something that is informing you. It's their choice. Anyways for the most part, really can't wait for the movie. Hopefully they'll bring the game back up afterwards, that'd be interesting to see/play. Hopefully, if they do bring the game back, it won't be crap. But who knows, eh?

And haha yeah, Vash does look like a broom. Oh well, I like how the looks. The... outragously tall.. and slim figure goes well for him, I think so anyways. (Couldn't fit into that awesome gettup without it huh? Lol!)
I did happen to read the Trigun manga too, and it was fantastic. Personally though, I've been more of an anime over manga kind of guy. Just who I am.

In any case. The description of Vash Vs. Wolfwood kind of bugs me. Kind of a step in an awkward position, but I'm sure it'll be quite interesting. Hopefully anyways.

Anyways, since some people have gone into other animes. I'd really have to say that I indeed did like Cowboy Bebop. Trigun, Cowboy Bebop, FLCL, (yes, I really did like the anime of it) and Neon Genesis Evangelion are all great shows to me, not to mention a few other pretty decent ones (things like .Hack//Sign and Chrono Crusade) are all very enjoyable. Oh and if you were wondering, I really do like .Hack//Sign. Kind of brings about some early child fantasies of being able to live in some kind of virtual world like that. Dreamer, haha.
I also really do hope, that by some slight slight slim chance, that they'll bring about maybe another manga series, and maybe another anime to go with it. I know that's not likely, but if it runs on a good story line that's pretty true to the original, then heck. I'll love it no matter what. Again, just dreaming.
Good night folks.

Anyone who took the "*yawn*" in the incorrect way is dumb as shit. You kids are trying to argue opinion over opinion which makes you look like a fucking fool. Stokky is free to think Trigun sucks more then any anime ever, no matter how you people feel. Ignorance is bliss is about the only thing that can explain this.

As for the movie thank you for the update Stokky tonight is the first time I found out they are even doing a movie. Trigun and Elfin Lied were pretty much what got me into anime in the first place so Trigun will always have a "spot in my heart" I guess you could say.

Combogaliswrote on Oct 14, 2008 at 22:15
Stokky, I suggest you give Trigun a second chance. I'm assuming you saw only the first few episodes, which in my opinion are great in their own way. However, the first half of the show is more fun than anything. After about 12 episodes, the show gets amazingly intense and dark. It's a complete 180, and those episodes are what make it a top contender with the best.
Meseriwrote on Oct 15, 2008 at 21:07
Lol, I agree with you when you say the majority of anime viewers doesn't know what great anime is, Stokky, but not because they're niave. It's just that there is alot of anime out there but not much of it is any good. What are the components for a great anime? Great story line, intresting characters, being beautifully drawn, fight scenes (if there are any) that aren't all jerky and just flow well. Having an ending that doesn't want to make you scream WTF! and pull your hair out.
Taking all that into account, Trigun almost did it for me, but not quite. After all that having been said, could you suggest a good anime for me, I'm currently watching bleach and naruto, and looking for something to fill the time between release dates for each new episode.
Shogunwrote on Oct 16, 2008 at 10:21
to really appreciate Trigun i think you really have to watch it twice, i liked it from the very beginning, but the first few episodes really gain some value after you have the whole picture in place.
Chuuiwrote on Oct 19, 2008 at 19:51
WOW... All this for one little yawn.
Now before I say anything else,Trigun is my favorite anime (with Cowboy Bebop being a close second.I'm a sucker for oldies.)
You guys kinda need to chill out and quit makin it into such a big deal. Trigun's main theme was live and let live remember? If Stokky doesn't like Trigun then they just don't like Trigun.
Say it with me! Love And PEACE!
Anyway enough fan-girling from me, Thanks for the movie info Stokky. :D

Trigun was one of the first animes I ever watched besides Cowboy Bebop and a few select others. I can say that it is defiantly on the list of classic animes that I would recommend to people who enjoy this genre and/or a first time watcher. The art is a little (well alot) older than what we can accomplish today, but I do want to see how this will turn out. I do enjoy a little reminisces here an there. It kinda goes along the same lines as Final Fantasy VII: Advent Children. I am a huge fan of the game and I know the movie doesn't correspond with the original plot of the game, but that was an amazing movie. Of course there will be people who say otherwise and rightfully so. Everyone is entitled to their own opinion. One way or the other, I can't wait to see how they are going to play this one out. I just hope that this doesn't lead to anything to disappointing.

Trigun, Cowboy Bebop, and InuYasha got me into anime, I have the full Trigun anime series on dvd in collector's tins and I see no mention of one of my other favorite animes, S-cry-ed.

P.S. Nicolas D. Wolfwood wasn't always friend to Vash, he was at one point apprentice to one of the Gung-ho Guns.
We forgive dear Wolfwood because he rectifies his mistakes, and love him because he has a giant gun that is only possible in animes.

"Dam, mister that thing is heavy"
"That my friend is because it is so full of mercy"

Oh, before I forget, I have to put in my favorite Vash the Stampede quotes:

"Total slaughter, total slaughter,
I wont leave a single man alive,
La, De, Da, De, Died Genocide,
La, De, Da, De, Dud, an Ocean of Blood,
Lets begin the killing time."

"Repeat after me, this wold is made of, Love and Peace!"

it wouldn't be able to hold a match next to the manga. am i coming off cocky just because i read the manga?
ffffff.

no seriously....if the people above me like the anime that much, they'd cut off your head (stokky) if they read the manga.

no redundant bleach, naruto shit. ::ducks::

Wows... All that over a yawn. :o While I, myself, love Trigun immensely and have become quite obsessed with it, a yawn at a tagline doesn't really seem like something to get that upset over.

I'll definitely be watching the movie, despite the rather.. questionable plot, with the going back in time thing. Trigun's amazing in both the anime and the manga - though the latter is exponentially more epic. But the anime has its own charm, and if not for it, I wouldn't know the awesomeness of the series, at all. Nor would I have watched any other anime. Gotta love it for that, at least. C:

And I must agree; Elfen Lied is wonderful, as well.

okay people if you read this movie supposedly has nothing to do with the Trigun story so far as it said it is an original story the whole Vash vs. Wolfwood thing was inevitable spawning from the different views of the two characters best seen in the episode that features the orphaned kids and the sandworms but most likely the movie will probably end with an alliance of some sort between the two to take out a bigger threat probably not knives but at the same time it's possible
Sukitto Sohmawrote on Jan 26, 2009 at 09:33
Trigun manga and Trigun the anime are good. I think Stokky at least understands and all of you need to understand that all anime are inferior to their manga counter part if they have one anyway. Despite it being inferior, Trigun the anime was still pretty good. I still watch it to this day.

Elfen Lied is awesome. Samurai X/Ruroni Kenshin is awesome. Anime like Naruto, Dragonball Z, and a few others are just insipid. They have some good moments, but not enough to keep my drawn to it. In fact I like Naruto Shippuden better, but that ain't saying much. Cowboy Bebop, Outlaw Star, and a few others I have that I can't remember are the types that really draw you in.

Some English dubs are good and most are sub par or worse. Johnny Young Bosch, a former power ranger, was a good choice for Vash IMO, ironically he also plays Ichigo in Bleach for those who don't know.

While I get what you meant by the *yawn* Stokky, I feel that you are a bit too egotistical. The whole "I write it and nothing can change my mind" attitude is unnerving and as you can see it causes waves if misunderstood. So keep it clean.
Wuuwrote on Jan 28, 2009 at 00:46
Well, all things considered; atleast they kept the original people that brought the TV series together instead of using someone else.

I admired the manga due to it's eye to detail compared to mangas of it's time. It was also probably the first more adult anime I ever watched. To me the story was more original and refreshing due to the huge amount of storylines like Love Hina and Tenchi Muyo.

Elfen Lied and Trigun are not the same but relate in the sense that there is no mercy in terms of murder and torture. Trigun goes from almost complete comedy to a drama by the third disk. Shit ain't happy after that.

If there is a movie. I do hope it'll be a slaughter fest like the near end of the series. Because that point was more in depth then the beginning.

This is comming from someone that doesn't watch crap like Naruto and Bleach religiously. Or, at all. I mostly watch the movies like Akira and Steamboy.
JellyGuy96wrote on Jan 28, 2009 at 01:08
Well have you at least by now watched the whole anime series Stokky? But anyways, I am looking forward to the movie. Actually, It would be really interesting to see life actions films of Trigun and Cowboy Bebop. Which we all know, Cowboy Bebop is the number one anime in most peoples list. Not just because most everyone has seen it but just because it's simply brilliant.

Stokky, there is no way in hell that you can label in general what is good anime or bad anime. Your opinions differ from many other people. It's not like your opinion settles everything. Anime has many different genres and approaches at different subjects. A lot of them can hardly be classed together at all. All I can see is that you are some tool that is all pissed off because the masses like anime such as Trigun, Naruto, and NGE, which by the way was a great anime but I can understand if your feeble mind couldn't figure out what it truly was about. Anyway, I'm done wasting time on a pathetic moron "know it all".

Wow, I'm not entirely sure what happened to this disaster. I find Trigun to be a good anime. Some people don't. I will never understand those people. Some people hate sushi. Another groupe I will never understand. Stokky, you're right. Bad tagline. However, I feel that no one really has a right to call Trigun a bad anime. It has proven itself with a good story line, character catharsis, well developed backstory, and a good musical score. Stokky, I really do urge you to finish the series. I was very disallusioned with it at first. However, the further into the series you get and the more serious the series gets the better it gets. If you only watched the first few eppisodes then you are right. It starts out in utter frivolity. By the end of it, it becomes one of the most touching stories ever told. If Hayao Miyazaki praises the story as good then I'm sold.

Of course it would be pointless to ask where exactly was anything -- and I mean *anything* -- bad said about Trigun on this page (even though almost everyone seems to get that impression). As it would be pointless to ask what's wrong with opinionated posts. Cause by the looks of it, only some non-opinionated ass-kissing "news" would please this crowd.

Then again, that kind of post would bring about a whole 'nother kind of crowd. So all's good in the end: at least you ended up with the harmless hyperactive kids.

Well, the crowd's defensive about the whole -yawn- thing which isn't even really necessary. The one thing it has done is made Stokky look like the jerk. Even if Stokky didn't say Trigun sucks, it's implied through the -yawn- (cuz if you put -yawn-, it basically means it personally sucked for you) Either you like it or you don't.
How am I supposed to feel enthusiastic for a show that the writer is pasting the world -yawn- too? Of course I'm gonna be slightly defensive! I agree with Sukitto Sohma, keep it clean.

i seriously love trigun, the anime and the manga. they're different, but both awesome in their own way.
however, i have to say i'm not exactly thrilled to hear what people are saying about bleach. and naruto, for that matter.
these shows, while not being classics like trigun, are still both quite good. they're both very popular (for a reason), have suffered from a filler overload, and the manga of both is better. you really need to consider these things, they're good shows.
you may not like them, but it's a matter of opinion, so please don't treat it like it's a fact that "naruto and bleach both suck", or "they're so predictable".
because really, they're not. (i have found that anime and manga in general are not predictable.)
i happen to be a huge bleach fan, so hearing my favorite anime referred to like it's horrible is kind of insulting. it would be for anyone.
and i think bleach happens to be brilliant.
oh yeah, and the whole "yawn" thing? miscommunication. stokky should have thought it out a bit more before writing it, and the rest should have read the comments, and realized what was meant by it. let it go, people.

Mikewrote on Mar 18, 2009 at 21:02
Stokky, I agree with you that "Vash vs. Wolfwood" is not a particularly effective tagline- especially since they already covered it in the anime! Reminds me of the idiotic "Mew vs Mewtwo- The Match of All Time" tagline of the first Pokemon movie. Real clever until it moved into "Entei vs Unknown- The Adventure", "Deoxys vs Rayquaza- The Epic Battle" and so on and so forth. Yu-gi-oh and Dragonball Z did the same stupid thing with their movies. They don't seem to realize that they should be targeting people who haven't watched the series as well as the diehard fans. I will probably watch this movie no matter what, but I'm coming in with high expectations and what them to deliver something I don't expect.

A tagline like "A damn good anime movie with plenty of guns, women and donuts" would be more effective in my opinion.

Trigun was definitely an excellent manga. The anime? :
Seemed to be really weird they'd stretch the storyline out a parts and redraw Vash so he'd look like a broom. I can't believe I'm even replying to this article since it came out nearly a year ago. In my opinion, its not the storyline or visuals looking good that make the anime good, but rather the emotions expressed and just the fact that the manga was turned into a motion picture at all. I'm excited and waiting to see the movie, even though the conflict btw Wolfwood & Vash seems a bit odd.

Anyway I thank you for the info and the opinion, I'm not a huge anime fan but a friend was watching Gungrave the other day and I couldn't help but remember watching Trigun so many years ago. So I found my way here and this is the first I heard of a Trigun movie being made, should be interesting to say the least. And yes, I concur with the yawn as it was directed at a rather unoriginal "vs" tagline, and if you feel the need to flame me for this I'd suggest getting off the internet for at least 5 minutes a day.

I Can't Believe so many of these comments are dedicated to attacking a random stranger because of an onomatopoeia, everyone is so busy ranting back and forth about whether it was justified, that practically no one has said anything about the string topic, The TRIGUN Movie. Which I will do now. Vash Vs. Wolfwood Implies competition not combat, however, Stating simply that Wolfwood is on "Vash's side" would be entirely inaccurate. Until more than halfway through the series Wolfwood is secretly aiding the Gung-Ho Guns, and eventually Vash's philosophy of un-erring free will convinces Wolfwood to change his ways, but only once it's too late; leaving plenty of room for confrontation, and yes indeed, competiton. *yawn*

Everyone has there own taste in what animes are best suited for them and what isn't. No one has a right to say what is good or bad. I mean it depends on the persons personal preference. At least he took a none stand point and presented the news none the less right? I look foward seeing the trigun movie, just cause i liked the series myself. For all those attacking him and not reading what he said you should read his comments. Oh for everyone out there, i would recomend Saiyuki myself.

Hi all, while the flaming and discussion (or the lack of it) has been interesting, I'm just here to say I'm really glad to find people who hold anime like Cowboy Bebop and Samurai Champloo in higher esteem over most other popular animes.
Cheerios coming at ya, FrostedCheerios!

I don't tell people wat to think/watch, but I do agree, the majority of anime viewers may not actually watch quality anime..
Just look around at what people rave over, that's enough to tell ya.

Cheers,

So far reading all the comments, lots of people love trigun and cowboy bebop but i havn't heard anything about gunsword. gunsword is simmalar to trigun and bebop, the main character being like a mix of vash and spike.
if your a trigun or bebop fan check out gunsword.
mardocwrote on Apr 11, 2009 at 23:39
prolly the best animes so far, are 2 of watanabe's productions, cowboy bebop and samurai champloo. and trigun is there in the top 10.

anyway, where can i find more information about the live action cowboy bebop movie, if any?
anonymouswrote on Apr 30, 2009 at 04:57
stokky why do you even bother to preview somthing if you are indifferent to it, that makes no sense, unless you are trying to get all the fan boys out there in a tizzy so you can have drama on your page most likly so that you can see the comments left on said page so you know that people are accually looking at said page, in all honesty , if you havent seen the whole series of trigun , then you shouldnt be previewing/reviewing anything, you should just keep your mouth shut and keep the side comments to yourself (ie: *yawn*) better yet stop trying to pretend you are a internet journalist and go back to beating off to small dicked gay porn. in order to be a journalist (either internet or other wise) you need to keep the side comments and your personal opinion out of your story, have fun trying to flame me after i post this, here i'll beat you to the punch, i dont give a fuck if you live to be 100 years old or die right this second, and i dotn care what you are going to say to try to hurt my feelings over the internet, in all honesty i couldnt care less if your mother was raped and infected with aids then had her throat slit and then her body burned in a fire, keep up with your stupid pre/re-views that are nothign more that the opinions of a fat fuck jerking to too much hentai while fondling your little plastic dolls

Still no more details on the Trigun movie as far as I know, same about the live-action Cowboy Bebop (other than that bit last month).

And as usual, cheers for the oh-so-insightful side-comments. My god, if "journalists" actually had any real idea about half the shit they're writing... At least I'm not pretending.

Hollywood is going to kill anime. Just like they did comics. There is going to be:

1. Akira-Live Action
2. Ninja Scroll-Live Action
3.Cowboy Bebop-Live Action
4. Ghost in the Shell-Live Action
5. Robotech-Live Action
6....that's all i found for now...

*NOTE*
Rumor has it that Leonardo Dicaprio will have a role in either Akira as Kaneda or Ninja Scroll, also Keanu Reeves will Play Spike in Cowboy bebop, and Spielberg is Direction Ghost in the Shell. Tobey Maguire will be producing Robotech, but not sure if he is going to star in it.

I wouldnt be surprised if someone got the rights to make a Trigun Live action. I know it will happen but i really hope they dont screw them up like they did Dragonball
anonymouswrote on May 9, 2009 at 09:09
From what i've seen, Spielberg's directing style, and Ghost in the Shell's genre, i would consider these two subjects to be quite a match and actually be looking forward to see what he can do. As for the rest of the actors, directors and anime listed above, Im not too sure what would happen if they came together

Some people put there opinions in there writing, others dont so please keep in mind that only people who are paid to write them will often do it objectivley. So just lay off, he's not a fan that treats the series on par with Hayao, fair enough just let it go... "Love and Peace" Or do you just want to argue.

Either way, thanks for the info Stokky! :) PS: Dont take these moronons as true fans, they just have a little 'something' to make up for so they start arguements.

death note was poop. most of us mainly obsess with this trigun stuff because we all grew up with it and apparently johnny yong bocsh, the voice of ichigo also did vash and many others... and which bleach worked it's way to mainstream interesting others into more other kinds of anime etc, blah blah blah. i know the original post may have been old but i was looking for a 'what's next' sorta thing in google lol. i've heard these rumors. a yawn is acceptable. only because trigun just wasn't long enough. but it still by far beats the spam dbz, naruto, and bleach give us, gah! i like them too, i have my reasons. :B GANTZ = AMAZING FYI xD talk to me at myspace.com/baconbanger
anonymouswrote on Jul 5, 2009 at 12:26
I really loved Trigun, so am quite glad to see they picking it up again.

And what's with all the Eva bashing? Last time I checked (if anyone has done their research) Eva helped revive an industry on the verge of collapse, so maybe I am missing something here?
anonymouswrote on Jul 17, 2009 at 03:12
stokky, could you just please remove the "yawn" part...
or atleast add "joke!" or something instead...
it'll stop the flame-throwers, i guess XD

hmmm... maybe trigun isn't one of the best animations these days, i, atleast understand that, but it doesn't mean that a few years back, it wasn't. i was about give or take ten years old when i first watched it on tv. never quite forgot it. when i see cosplayers dressing like vash, i say "its trigun".
yeah, i forgot the lead character but not the title.

anyway, just rewrite the stuff or whatever, and the dragons will shut up.

niwei, thanks for the info
anonymouswrote on Jul 17, 2009 at 21:35
Bebop and Champloo beat out Trigun out everytime, simply with pure badass. Trigun is amazing BTW.

Black Lagoon is the most badass of all anime ATM, cause it does not even use fantasy/macha/supernatural stuff , just good plot line and badass.

Now that is an anime that should get a movie.
Hacklobsterwrote on Jul 20, 2009 at 20:43
Bebop and Champloo were very good shows, but they dont compare to trigun. I enjoyed Trigun way more than them. I will re-watch Champloo though.
anonymouswrote on Aug 7, 2009 at 20:39
Bebop, Champloo, Trigun, and Outlaw Star are basically the only animes that have struck me as worth while. They have good story lines and don't take 400 episodes to get to the point... For example - Naruto, Naruto S, Bleach, and... oh god... DB, DBZ, DBGT (AHHHHHHHH - 34episodes later - IMMA SUPERZ SAIYAN!!!)

Short and Sweet animes win 60% of the time 100% of the time.

BOO!wrote on Aug 20, 2009 at 21:09
Stokky, let me just say that i think Trigun is an awesomely done anime for it's time. It has an amazingly huge fan base that has lost it's touch. THE BEST FUCKING MUSIC EVER! And it should be respected and adored! Sorry to burst your bubble, but some people WANT this movie to happen. I've seen some good anime like Higarashi No Nako Koro Ni and i say trigun tops it.
Locoxxwrote on Aug 21, 2009 at 04:38
Well...I dont care what Stokky said about Trigun; We are just giving him too much fame by writting his nickname in our comments just because he was the first one on dislike Trigun taglines or whatever Pfff....Cmon dudes! lets just wait till the movie gets out and enjoy! (if its rly good) cant wait to hear Vash doing his weird Laugh!
PS: I never watch the english version just the spanish and his laughs its rly funny lol.
A God Among Menwrote on Aug 27, 2009 at 04:40
Ignoring my conceited god-complexed name I have something to say in this.
First, Stokky is entitled to his opinion, while I agree and yet at the same time disagree with him, Tri-gun was an "okay" anime, it was surely a classic, but there were a lot better, and I agree with his comment about Higurashi, the Higurashi Trinity has to be, when it comes to murder/mystery/action the first or maybe, and that's a big maybe second best anime there it, most anime fans opinions are based on impotent knowledge, you don't know of other animes just the major ones aired on Adult Swim or something like that, I've watched a ton of anime, riding from Shakugan, to Lucky Star, to Higurashi, to Death Note, and I've got to say the worst animes out there are Bleach and Naruto due to their story lines, the directors just didn't know when to quit, the BEST anime's are 12-26 episodes long, that's just all there is to it.Tri-gun is only so favored because it was aired on normal TV, I've got over 700 Gigs of anime, over 150 completed series, believe me there's so many better.

Stokky, I can understand the *yawn* in your review, but none the less, you are reporting on a theatrical event. Although slightly amusing, we care only for hard facts, and not for your personal opinions/musings on said events.
That being said, that tag line, in my opinion, was so cheesy, a mouse would get sick.
Monkehwrote on Nov 10, 2009 at 02:52
Trigun is probably my favorite anime series of all time (and no Stokky, this does not it mean it actually IS the best anime of all time, it's just my opinion), so I can't wait to see the movie!

I can't believe I just spent about 30 minutes reading these comments *slaps self*.

-Stokky 'yawned' at the tagline not trigun (if that even matters?).
-There are too many idiots on this planet.
-There should be a way to ban stupid people from using the net.

Trigun was the type of anime that is somewhere around decent. Most anime are full of japanese bullcrap (shushi) which spawns clones and clones. Trigun delivers action. It's good to see it come back in the form of a movie.

Wolfwood was the only decent character there. And he died. So

@Pokemew - I'm sure no one cares, but

"And for Fooly Cooly: the manga is 10000000 times better than the anime, I recommend it! The story, the characters, the drawing style, etc, are one of the best! Yasuhiro Nightow knows how to make really good stuff!

The manags that originates an animee tend to be much much better than the anime, so, yeah ^^"

First off... WRONG... the manga blows compared to the FLCL anime. Plus Yasuhiro Nightow didn't have anything to do with the FLCL manga... AND the anime preceeded the manga in this case. So yeah your pretty much, with the exception of personal preference, 100% wrong.
