A Japanese businessman, captured by modern-day pirates, is written off and left for dead by his company. Tired of the corporate life, he opts to stick with the mercenaries that kidnapped him, becoming part of their gang.
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

I can't think of anything wrong with this anime. The characters are lovable (even the bad guys, to a degree); the message of love is clear without being too saccharine or getting in the way of the action; the plot twists aren't predictable, and the music is breathtaking. I'll never think of donuts the same way again. ^__^
