Yasuhiro Nightow’s original Trigun manga ran in Tokuma Shoten’s Monthly Shonen Captain magazine from April 1995 to June 2000 through several irregular serializations and hiatuses. Three tankobon volumes were released by Tokuma Shoten and two volumes by Shonen Gahosha. 

It was followed by Trigun: Maximum, which was serialized in Young King Ours magazine from October 1997 to March 2007. Fourteen tankobon volumes were released in total. 

The manga inspired a 26-episode anime adaptation that aired in 1998 and an anime film titled Trigun: Badlands Rumble in 2010. A new, reimagined anime series titled Trigun Stampede was released in 2023.
