Is Milly Thompson in ‘Trigun Stampede’?

Milly Thompson crying in the original 1998 Trigun series

The ’90s delivered a lot of classic anime: Neon Genesis Evangelion, Cowboy Bebop, Sailor Moon, Serial Experiments Lain … the list goes on. Of course, one of the major standouts from this period is Trigun, which aired in 1998 and gained popularity in the U.S. and Canada as part of Adult Swim’s Toonami block in the early 2000s. Fast forward 25 years to 2023, and Orange, the CG studio behind Beastars, has released a reboot of the classic series, called Trigun Stampede, as part of the winter season. But stretching all the way back to the series’ announcement trailer in 2022, fans of the 1998 version have been asking one huge question: Where is Milly Thompson?

For those who haven’t seen the original (and I was one of you until very recently): Milly Thompson works under Meryl Stryfe in the 1998 Trigun. The two of them are agents for the Bernadelli Insurance Society, and they specialize in disaster insurance. For that reason, the higher-ups at Bernadelli send the duo off to find and shadow the so-called “Humanoid Typhoon” in order to try and mitigate the city-wide damage he usually leaves in his wake. The kind-hearted, bubbly, and bluntly honest Milly is a great counterbalance to the more business-oriented and prideful Meryl. She’s also just all-around funny and delightful, which made her a fan-favorite.
