Details on the history of this new Trigun anime are still under wraps, although there are definitely some Vash fans who might wonder if this will be a series much like Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood and or Ultimate Hellsing which stuck closer to the printed page of the manga.
Crunchyroll describes the franchise of Trigun As such:
“Trigun is a popular action manga series by Yasuhiro Nightow that follows the story of Vash the Stampede, a legendary shooter and pacifist with a bounty on his head. His original 1998 anime series, TRIGUN, and a 2010 feature film, Trigun: Badlands Rumbleachieved worldwide popularity and inspired many creators.”
