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*
