Trigun: Badlands Rumble will make its English subtitled premiere Saturday at Anime Expo, Funimation representatives announced Friday at the convention. The premiere will take place at 4 p.m. in the Film Room of Los Angeles Convention Center.
At Friday night's panel, the U.S. anime company revealed that it would release the film based on the manga and anime series Trigun domestically in 2011. Badlands Rumble was released in Japan last April. Though it was previously screened at Seattle's Sakura-Con, the version viewed there was not subtitled, or dubbed, into English. Tonight's screening will be the first with subtitles.
