Trigun: Badlands Rumble is just one month away from premiering in Japan and the Trigun has been such a classic series that a special fan tribute message board was displayed at the recent Tokyo Anime Fair. The board featured well wishes from many famous mangaka such as Kosuke Fujishima (Oh My Goddess!), Nobuhiro Watsuki (Rurouni Kenshin), Hiromu Arakawa (Fullmetal Alchemist), etc.
So here’s a closer look at the tribute board and see who are the famous folks who left a message:
Top: Illustrator/character designer Toshinao Aoki, action figure sculptor Maki Asai, manga artist Hiromu Arakawa(Fullmetal Alchemist), anime director Tetsuro Araki(Death Note), manga artist Masakazu Ishiguro.
Middle: Anime mechanical designer Kanetake Ebikawa(Mobile Suit Gundam 00: Awakening of the Trailblazer), screenwriter Ichiro Okouchi(Code Geass), anime director Yoshimitsu Ohashi(Witchblade), novelist Hideyuki Kurata(Read or Die), screenwriter Yosuke Kuroda(Mobile Suit Gundam 00).
Bottom: Manga artist Nobuyuki Takagi(Kokoro Library), screenwriter Tatsuya Takahashi, illustrator/character designer Takashi Takeuchi(Fate/stay night), manga artist Fumiko Tanigawa, manga artist Yasunari Toda(Giant Robo: The Day the Earth Burned).
Its really interesting to see all the mangaka’s different interpretations of Vash on one single board.
