Trigun takes place in the distant future on a deserted planet. Vash the Stampede is a gunfighter with a legend so ruthless that he has a $$60,000,000,000 bounty on his head. Entire towns evacuate at the rumor of his arrival. However, the real Vash the Stampede is not the same man that rumor portrays him to be. The enigmatic and conflicted lead character in Trigun is actually more heroic in nature; as well as a complete and utter idiot at times. Written by
Knives and Vash are twins, that fact not only makes them both equal theoretically,_ but practically as well. In the beginning of the plot of the anime, Knives is shown to have upper hand in combat against Vash, but as the plot progresses and the final fight between Vash and Knives comes up, Vash is shown to have more dominance in the scene, contributing to the fact that Vash had fought different powerful enemies, while Knives simply commanded the 'powerful fighters' to kill Vash.

I hope you don't mind me barging in like this. In spite of the profession I've chosen, I've never actually made a confession before. It's these times we live in.

Vash and Knives are the Ying and Yang of evil and good. There's much to be learned from their feelings and attitudes. I'd take a close look at the minds of these characters and also enjoy the humor this series tries to lighten the mood (sometimes saddening) with.
