May 17, 2011 : Trigun Movie Coming To Theaters

As I mentioned last year, Trigun: Badlands Rumble made its way through Japan’s theaters last spring. This summer, it’s North America’s turn. Even better news – it will be dubbed in English. However, it’s worth pointing out that some theaters will show the English-dubbed version, while others will show the original Japanese movie. I suggest finding out in advance which one you’ll be seeing, lest you repeat my mistake with Ghost In The Shell 2: Innocence. The release dates haven’t been finalized, but that should come out within a few weeks.

The English dubbed cast will only have the Vash voice actor reprising his role from the anime series, however it looks like the rest of the cast will have several recognizable voices – except for the guy who’s playing Wolfwood… no idea who that is. Also on the plus side, the dubbing was done by Funimation, who usually does pretty solid work. It might be worthwhile watching this in the theaters.

April 14, 2010 : Troy McClure In All His Glory

While I have soured to newer Simpsons’ episodes, it’s always fun to see cool sites devoted to the show. Simpson Crazy has compiled numerous lists, including:

Most of these are references to the older (and in my opinion) better episodes. Plus, anything with Troy McClure rocks – I overlook his fish fetish and remember him for playing The Human in The Planet Of The Apes (the musical, not the planet).

In unrelated news, apparently Trigun will see new toys coming out via Revoltech. It looks like the figures will be just of Vash and Wolfwood, but they look bad-ass. The link has numerous pics.

March 12, 2010 : Trigun: Badlands Rumble

Trigun: Badlands Rumble opens up in Japan on April 24. Not sure when it will reach the United States, but the trailer looks promising (even if it is in Japanese).

It looks like it will be similar to the Cowboy Bebop movie in that it will take place during the middle of the series – and that means probably no Knives or Legato – but it does have Wolfwood so it can’t be all that bad.
