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 picked up my first gun at the age of seven. And I shot. I remember how strangely easy it was to pull the trigger. Ha. I actually laughed. Because that one shot was all that was needed to silence that sickening piece of garbage who had the nerve to call himself my guardian. Ha. It was that simple. And so I was free. Yes, tomorrow would be different. Hm. Tomorrow. As much as I wanted to believe, it only went from bad to worse. A vicious cycle... I didn't want other kids to grow up like me, so I...

In the opening credits for the first 17 episodes, a poster reading "WANTED - Vash the Stampede - 60,000,000,000$$" is briefly shown three times. For episodes #18-26, however, this poster is replaced by one which reads "-EMERGENCY- EVACUATION ORDER! HUMANOID TYPHOON IS COMING". See more »
The Trigun anime series is a magnificent addition to anime of today. It starts off with about twelve or so episodes with the average hero-saves-the-day motive, but there is always a big mystery left behind for our hero, Vash: Who in the world IS he!?
About halfway through the series, Vash is caught up in the midst of his brother, Knives, who wants nothing better than to see Vash suffer. Vash has one weakness, and a pretty serious one at that: He cannot kill ANYBODY or else he'll risk total, mental damnation. So, what's one thing that Knives does? He sends out about a dozen totally unique fighters dubbed the "Gung Ho Guns", whose job is to drive Vash to kill them.
This series does a great job at bringing in well-made characters and has its share of comical humor along the way. All that I can add is that when the final episode came to an end, one word kept circling through my head: Wow. Plus, it's fun choosing which of the "Gung Ho Guns" is your favorite. Personal choice of mine: Caine the Longshot.
