Storyline

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 Toonzone.com

Quotes

Brad: [Brad's crush is being held hostage] I just don't see any way out of this damn situation.
Nicholas D. Wolfwood: There is another way. If we simply ignore the girl's plight, then we'll definately make it through.
Brad: What did you say!
Nicholas D. Wolfwood: I think that's the best option at this point in time. It's the only logical way any us will survive against them.
Brad: No, you can't!
Nicholas D. Wolfwood: Hoooowwwwever. I do know a guy who whines, cries and throws tantrums and he somehow manages to find a way to save everyone.

Wow.
16 February 2002 | by (the remains of July) – See all my reviews

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. ^__^
