Trigun Maximum is a direct continuation of the original two-volume Trigun manga. The difference in name comes from a change of publishing magazine that Yasuhiro Nightow had to go through back in 1997. The artist had to add the Maximum title to the manga to continue publishing the story.
This very anticipated reprint comes after the wide success of the new Trigun Stampede anime adaptation, and makes it much easier for new and old Trigun fans to read the original work.
The Trigun Deluxe hardcover edition releases on December 5, 2023 in North America. Meanwhile, the first volume of the Trigun Maximum Deluxe hardcover releases on April 2, 2024. Each volume of the series will cost will cost $49.99 USD
