Although the new Trigun Stampede anime series has arrived, you can still watch Trigun online. You can stream the original series on many legal websites. It’s just a question of which one is right for you.
Read on to find out where to watch Trigun online in your area.
The series tells the tale of Vash the Stampede, a pacifist drifter/ gunslinger on a post-apocalyptic planet. Although he tries to avoid violence, trouble always comes to find him. Unfortunately, Vash has a giant bounty which attracts unwanted attention.
Vash also has to deal with his evil brother, Knives …
The setting has an Old West feel to it, which is appropriate for a struggling space colony. Although Trigun can get very dark, the series has a good sense of humor. Vash, with his goofy outlook on life, is a fun character to watch.
But Trigun is also a philosophical series with a lot to say about nonviolent action.
The new series, Trigun Stampede, arrived in January 2023.
