I remember when I watched Trigun that I wanted more out of the show when it ended, and not just because the conclusion of the show sucked. The show might have had it's flaws of a half baked morality message with a style over substance, ADD riddled fun-fest, but the other 90 percent of the show has great characters, more than wonderful art, interesting world building and a killer soundtrack that have produced one of the most fun to watch, funny, and endearing anime shows I've seen yet. So when I heard that a movie based off of said show was in the works, read more

*****SPOILERS ALERT*****

While it was fun to see Vash and the gang again I was really disappointed by this. My major problem was the story-line. It was predictable.

1 - Vash rolls into town, destruction (best part)
2 - Introduce the sex appeal (she's useless throughout the movie, but she can beat up a couple nameless thugs pretty good)
3 - Introduce the Bad Guy, he has a strange philosophy where destruction and robbery fuel his massive ego
4 - Re-introduce the old mains, who rally to save everyone
5 - Vash rolls in to save everyone at the last second, because only he can.
6 - Sun glances off read more

Trigun Badlands Rumble is an okay movie but could've been better if the story was about Vash's journey to face Knives rather than the plot we got instead.

The mains story of Badlands Rumble is centered on a robber named Gasback which leads to bounty hunters to gun him down for the reward money, however the film's main characters aren't very dominant onscreen as it leans more towards Gasback & Amelia; a woman who has a grudge against Gasback. The main dilemma is Vash sparring Gasback's life leading his morality being put into question as the criminal managed to get away from judgment. While it brings read more

I love the anime for Trigun, and I love the manga. Like LOTS of other people, I was beyond excited when I heard about a movie. It's one of my all time favorite Anime. I was only hoping for something as good as an average episode of Trigun though (so pretty amazing), but didn't even get a decent film.

The worst part was probably the story. It is very obvious, every little twist that is. And I don't just mean that Vash isn't dead. If that's a spoiler for you, you're just strangely not aware of the likelyhood of the main character of a large franchise read more

Anime: Cowboy Bebop: Tengoku no Tobira
These two titles share only one similarity, but it's one of significance: they're standalone movies which are, essentially, longer than average, high-budget episodes from the two series they're connected to. The movies capture perfectly what makes people love the respective main characters and there's rarely a dull moment in either film.

A wild adventure in a wide post apocalyptic world , in a CG or in a drawn one , they are born to fight as mercenaries since there is no other options to survive , two movies with enough similarities , and for sure good shows.
