The ongoing Anime NYC 2022 event brought with it a new look at Trigun Stampede, a reboot of the famed 90s-era anime series. The latest Trigun Stampede trailer brings with it a closer look at Millions Knives and his followers, including Legato Bluesummers.
Check out the trailer below. English subtitles are available in the closed captions.
The new Trigun Stampede shows Knives wearing his cloak-like outfit and speaking about wanting to “even out everything.” He also demonstrates his power, which involves manipulating countless numbers of blades floating in the air or linked in a chain. Knives is voiced by Junya Ikeda, who also voiced Ataru in Majestic Prince, Jou Kidou in Digimon Adventure tri, and played Gokai Silver in Pirate Sentai Gokaiger.
The new trailer also reveals the first look at Legato in Trigun Stampede. In the original story, Legato Bluesummers was leader of the Gung-Ho Guns, a group of assassins devoted to Knives’ will. The new version of Legato is voiced by Koki Uchiyama, who also voiced Banagher in Gundam Unicorn, Tomura Shigaraki in My Hero Academia, and Razor in Genshin Impact.
Members of the Gung-Ho Guns themselves also get appearances in the trailer. At the moment it’s unknown if they’re actually called “the Gung-Ho Guns”, though. The group under Legato and Knives in Trigun Stampede may be named differently this time around. Only Zazie the Beast is named in the trailer. She’s voiced by Tarako, who voiced Monokuma in Danganronpa and Kirara from InuYasha. Other members that appear similar to the original incarnations of E.G. Mine and Monev the Gale appear alongside a new character named William Conrad.
Trigun Stampede begins airing in January 2023. Episode 1 airs early at Anime NYC.
