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
The black cat that appears in every episode of Trigun is called "Kuroneko Sama" (which means "Lord Black Cat". The cat is a female and was a creation for one of Yasuhiro Nightow's first mangas (Japanese comic books) and he has stated that the cat is female. Her alternate name is "Kuroneko Kukan" or "Black Cat Space". She also makes a cameo in the video game "Wild ARMs: 2nd Ignition". See more »
Vash the Stampede... every time I observe his actions I can't help but sense something hidden deep within him, something we can't being to understand. But this much is certain: everyone one who has become involved with him has somehow regained an emotion which was once lost.

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 series first reels you in as a hilarious, action-packed romp full of wit and comical chaos, with a pretty clever premise behind it. But as the episodes progress, a more complex mystery begins to unfold and you'll find yourself dying to find out what's next when you're not laughing your head off or marveling at the action scenes. Crisp animation and chara designs, clever humour, a solid storyline and likeable characters that grow on you make Trigun a highly recommended series. Watching Trigun is not just very entertaining, it also leaves a lasting impression. Long live "Love and Peace"!
