And now for a bit of anime news… New Trigun movie set for 2009

Yasuhiro Nightow’s famed sci-fi Western Trigun which did so well on it’s release as a manga and then later as an animated TV series in 1998, is due to recieve a theatrical movie based on a original storyline sometime in 2009.

The revelation comes from the final volume of Nightow’s Trigun Maximum manga, which depicts Vash and everyone’s favourite gun toting priest Wolfwood on the back cover, pointing to a confrontation between the two in the 2009 theatrical film. Directoral duties appear to be handled by Satoshi Nishimura, who not only directed the original Trigun TV series, but also a number of other shows too such as Fighting Spirit and Shin Cho Bakumatsu Shonen Seiki Takamaru.

With animation duties supposedly handled by Madhouse studios too, it looks like the old gang is back and I for one, couldn’t be happier. There was always something very likeable about Trigun, in particular how it juggled the goofyness of the main character with the serious events that happened around him.

Let’s hope they continue to nail that juxtaposition or the film and give us a well-animated fun movie too.
