Yasuhiro Nightow’s space western Trigun is being rounded up for another showdown (or some kind of Wild West talk like that). A new series was just announced for a 2023 premiere, and Crunchyroll has the US rights.
Trigun was first animated in the 1998 series of the same name that ran for 26 episodes. The series premiered in the US on Adult Swim in 2003.

I sincerely hope that, like Sailor Moon Crystal or Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood, this is a complete adaptation of the manga. The manga contains a lot of fantastic material that was not included in the first TV series.
