SynopsisVash the Stampede is a wanted man with a habit of turning entire frontier towns into rubble. The price on his head is a fortune, and his path of destruction reaches across the arid wastelands of a desert planet. Unfortunately, most encounters with the spiky-haired gunslinger don’t end well for the bounty hunters who catch up with him; someone almost always gets hurt—and it’s never Vash. Oddly enough, for such an infamous fugitive, there’s no proof that he’s ever taken a life. In fact, he’s a pacifist with a doughnut obsession who’s more doofus than desperado. There’s a whole lot more to him than his reputation lets on—Vash the Stampede definitely ain’t your typical outlaw.

Characters & Voice Actors
Trigun is another one of my "must see in your anime career" shows. The easiest way to explain why I believe this can be summed up by one name: Vash. Vash the Stampede is arguably one of the coolest, toughest, and funniest characters ever created. He's everyone's favorite superhero (even though he demolishes everything he gets close to). Vash brings forth something that I think everyone has a little in themselves, compassion. If Vash had a middle name, it would be Compassion.
As if Vash wasn't enough for this show, they thought it might be a good idea to throw in a fantastic music score too. Tsuneo Imahori really hit the nail on the head with his work here. Great opening, great ending, and great background music throughout the show. I like some tracks so much that I often listen to them while exercising.
Wolfwood, Meril, and Milly are great supporting characters. The constant bickering between them will trigger plenty of laughter. Not a ton of detail goes into their pasts, but enough is presented to satisfy the viewer.
Animation is from the late 90's, so it's nothing crazy. It's great for the time period though.
Overall, one of my favorite anime shows. Worth a watch no matter what type of series interests you. read more
26 episodes of a revolutionary anime that mixed comedy and drama flawlessly. This anime found great popularity in the U.S. and for good reason. Like Wings of Honneamise, it very thoughtfully combined religious themes and pacifism in a morality tale.
The first half of the series introduces the characters, and may turn some people off by its silliness, but it makes sense throughout the second half. If the entire thing was completely serious, Vash's character development wouldn't have the same effect.
The music is very subtle and gets the job done. It's not overly noticeable, and compliments the scenes quite well. I heard one of the members of the band Black Mages composed the music. The music is very recognizable and memorable for how simple it is.
The characters are extremely well developed and human. Vash the stampede is one of the most multi-dimensional characters created in anime. You may be constantly asking yourself questions about him. So is he a womanizer or a gentleman? Is he a killer or a pacifist? A goofball or a serious, stern person? All of it is very well developed and lets you know that Vash doesn't have just one side to him. His friend Wolfwood is also very multi-dimensional and developed.
The animation and drawings in Trigun are not so great. They are in fact very mediocre, which is a shame. Many of the lines are drawn poorly, unevenly and the movement is often very choppy and of a low frame-rate (some of the episodes don't suffer from this, however). The lower quality animation is probably a budget issue, so it's a little easier to forgive. It must be extremely difficult to craft such a great series under so much pressure.
However, it's definitely one of the greatest moral dramatic comedies I've ever seen. The last few episodes left an impression on me; the show has a very clear and valuable message that has staying power. If you are up for a nice 26 episode series to laugh and cry with, give Trigun a whirl. read more
I personally like this anime, however due to some pacing issues & tone, this series is not for everyone. Trigun anime should be considered to the original Fullmetal Alchemist as it doesn't follow it manga storyline & is more original content, however there are some strengths to this adaptation. Also, it's main principle isn't gunslinger fights but its true writing is based on morality.
Taking place on Planet Gunsmoke where desert is found everywhere forcing people to live in this harsh climate. To make matters worse, people have developed this culture of the wild west leaving many outlaws running about. One of these men is Vash The Stampede whose head is worth $$60 Billion. The anime revolves around his quest to find his brother Knives, stop his villainy & bring peace to his homeland.
Much of the anime is bit rough, to start off people should be aware of its comedic tone as Vash & various characters are very goofy which often clashes with the more serious subject matter of the show being pacifism & Christianity. The early episodes can be slow at times as the real story doesn't kick until episode 12 but even then the story doesn't go full throttle until ep 15 when The Gung Ho Guns finally move as a group; challenging Vash's ideology.
The theme of this story is its study in pacifism on a dangerous planet, where villains with various skills & super powers won't budge easily to words of peace. This is one of the few western based animes that has an interesting tale but I can certainly people not being into the series due to several circumstances. Main problem with the anime is its pacing & enjoyment will heavily depend on the leading character Vash as he be found annoying to some.
When the anime isn't firing bullets it instead speaks of philosophy, however it isn't till ep 17 we understand why Vash is pacifistic in the first place & comprehend his motivations to follow those principles which are heavily affected with his brother Knives,who again, has minimal appearances in the anime. Because of this lack of knowledge, can lead to some viewers not willing to sit through the entire series.
Benefits in the anime include many as when compared to its manga, honestly has better writing & possibly even better conclusions to certain story arcs specifically death scenes. One example of the anime's strengths is the character Wolfwood who shares more screentime with Vash while in its manga, their interactions or moral conflicts aren't as strong compared to its anime. Much of the dialogue & writing placed into the anime is more "to the point" (in episodes 15-26) as the manga Trigun & Trigun Maximum tend to get a bit distracted at times.
Overall, Trigun appeals to certain people but if it does suit your tastes then you may enjoy it either for its setting or its search for the morally correct answer. The anime tends to give subtle messages to the conflict of the series. Most of the strengths of those messages is the opposing beliefs of Vash & Wolfwood as not many other pacifistic themed animes feature
a duo such as this one. Multiple villains also challenge Vash's beliefs in a more drastic level with casualties being build up with every encounter.It also holds two of the most interesting anime villains to date being Legato Bluesummers & Knives Millions.
Trigun's main focus isn't action, but instead dives into a theme heavily resembling beliefs found in Christianity. Other similar series would be Get Backers, Naoki Urasawa's Monster, Rurouni Kenshin & both series of Fullmetal Alchemist. The main difference that separates Trigun from these shows include the following; Vash's decisions & villains affect the planet's society, its western world with its own blend of sci-fi, & its references with religious elements mainly the siblings Vash & Knives & might have a better conclusion although it may come off as either subtle or ambiguous. read more
Trigun is a classic Sci-fi, Action, Adventure, Comedy series with an amazing Western concept. This action-packed show is full of adrenaline fuelled gun battles and an awesome character to back.
The story follows our protagonist Vash, who is known as a terrifying Gunman with a $60,000,000,000 bounty on his head. The story is laid out as an episodic adventure, where each 1 or 2 episodes brings about a different story, involving certain trials and hardships the characters experience. The good thing about this series is that each adventure is nicely linked to the next, so there is a form of progression and development. But this all changes later on in the series, where there’s a major plot-twist and it becomes clear that this is an adventure with a purpose.
By this being a sort of episodic adventure series, there are a bunch of characters but very few recurring ones. At least the main character (Vash) makes up for all that. Vash is a very complicated protagonist and even in the very first episode you’ll know that there’s more than meets the eye. What’s more is that both voice actors do an excellent job on him, bringing out plenty of comedy and intensity from his dialogue. The other characters do a fine job too but most of them don’t do much to stick out.
The quality of the animation in this series is amazing. Taking into consideration the year it was produced (1998); this is certainly one of the best looking, old, action anime of its time. Even though the character designs lack a bit of detail, the well-drawn destructible environments and fluid gun battles make up for it.
The music goes for the whole Country theme which suits this Western anime perfectly. However the soundtrack overall is nothing spectacular, with only a few notably great tunes and the OP and ED themes are pretty tiresome to listen to after a while.
Overall Trigun on the surface may seem like your typical bang! bang! shoot ‘em up, but this actually has a very deep story that will make you feel differently about life. Even though there are a lot of characters throughout the series, there are quite a few memorable ones and plenty of memorable moments in the series. This anime did so well in both the comedy and drama areas, which makes this highly entertaining to watch.

Both these animes have great music, lovable main characters that are infailable gunmen. Both of these animes have some of the best gun martial arts, and gun fights in Anime.
Trigun and Cowboy Bebop are both similar in the sense that they both have a western kind of feel to them, except one takes place in space and one takes place in an actual desert setting. Both animes have a very cool, laid back main character, but they are both different in their own rights, too, in that Trigun's main guy is very emotional and a pacifist with the insane luck and the main character of Cowboy Bebop is a bounty hunter, with amazing luck and skill, but they both have very horrible pasts and very different outlooks on life. Each episode of the anime revolves around a different bounty hunter story or a different story about helping people in a different town and every now and then they throw in some real parts about the storyline, hinting at both the past and the lives of the other characters, but it's mostly about the main character and their views on life, their pasts and they both have guns, insane main male characters and awesome fighting action scenes with a lot of humor sprinkled in.
Even from the first episode, the music and mood of Cowboy Bebop struck me as being similar to Trigun, and both are awesome anime that leave you satisfied and thinking.
Both are set in the future and are about bounty hunters.
Both Cowboy Bebop and Trigun have similar ideas in their storylines. You only have to watch both animes to see how many similarities there are.
The same atmosphere and very similar plot. Even characters are very similar- Vash and Knives are like Spike and Vicious.
I can think of around 20 similarities between Cowboy and Trigun - general mood, main character, plot development ect. All you have to do is watch both to understand that.
They are both similar Anime, but the way they are presented is different. in my opinion trigun is better though, because of the mood of the story. the soundtrack is pretty good but not as good as cowboy bebops
Both main characters Spike (Cowboy Bebop) and Vash the Stampeed (Trigun) are outlaws of sorts. Both appearing to be brash, selfish, and sometimes thoughtless as a mask hiding their inner hearts. Vash and Spike have also suffered great loss and are trying to make sense of it while dealing justice in their own way across the galaxies.
Both of these animes have their own aspect of hilariousness, though Trigun incorporates more humor than Cowboy Bebop. They're pretty similar in their coloring/art style and give off the same Sci-Fi Cowboy vibe.
Cowboy Bebop have similar art styles. The drawing gives each a similar feeling, however, while they may look alike, their characters have a bit of a different feel. Both main characers [Spike & Vash] have dark pasts that are slowly revealed throughout each series, but Vash's story is the center of the plot for Trigun. Trigun and Cowboy Bebop also each have humorous and serious elements to each episode. Again creating similar atmospheres for the viewer.
Both anime is a masterpiece of a genre. In both anime society is like in Wild West, but with advanced technology. Both main characters is skillful gunman. There is great action scenes and the comedy in these anime is outstanding. So if you liked Cowboy Bebop, you might like Trigun.
Both Anime have the same feel to the main characters who both have troubled and mysterious pasts. Combine this with good music and great actions scenes and you have two great shows.
I just started watching Trigun, but when watching the opening for episode 2 comboy bebop popped into my mind. The art style is IMO very alike and i thinks that's a good thing. So if you liked the more well how do i put this i think rough is the proper word for it, yeah rough art, in Trigun you wil love Comboy bebop. And Vice Versa.
(plot is also kinda similar.)
Firstly, the overall mood of both anime is quite similar.
Both are space cowboy themed anime, though the 'space' bit is a lot more emphasized in Cowboy Bebop).
Both have protagonists who are haunted by their past.
Both have main antagonists who usually work from behind the scenes and aren't introduced until halfway through the series.
Also, both follow a mostly episodic pattern, with subplots that are introduced and resolved within one episode.
They both have this intriguing and enigmatic main characters (Vash the Stampede and Spike), When it comes to gunmanship they are second to none, they both have this one girl that has always been like a backbone so to say. They have this crazy crew members and there is something about their eyes too. All in all they are both amazing!!!!
I think both Bebop and Trigun have the same feel with that sensational feel of comedy-drama especially as you dig deeper into these series. You see, I have a crush on Vash while at the moment, I am in love with Spike; so both of these series will have you developing a strong passion for each protagonist.
Despite that they're not really that similar in taste. For example: Vash is a whiny and soft-hearted dude while Spike is a bad-ass and cocky guy, you will both fall for them anyway since they have about the same persona of each guy with a mysterious past and are looking for the girl they once loved.
They both have very strong lead male characters who are lighthearted and comedic yet managed to pull off amazing stunts. Both have a outer space like western feel.
Both anime have a kind of Western space theme, and both have male main characters who are exceptionally strong, mysterious, and funny. Each have interesting and thought-provoking storylines as well.
Two classic series, just classic.
Both of these series has great humor and action as well as an interesting main character.
Additionally, there's that Western theme mixed in with light and dark elements. These two series effectively pull off the comedy and gives a well rounded definition of what it is. Of course, there's some bonus gunslinger action in both series.
Both series' main character also contains a dark past.
Both series contain that jazz-theme that is quite catchy.
Both series has drama.
Both series has similar animation style.
Both series has similar structure.
Both series contain sci-fi western elements
Need I say more?
Both shows have a sci-fi theme in them. They also have a "Wild West" feeling, though this is more obvious in Trigun. Both shows involve bounty hunters: in Cowboy Bebop, the Spike himself is a bounty hunter, while in Trigun, Vash is HUNTED by bounty hunters.
Trigun and Cowboy Bebop are two very unique anime. They are of a similar art style, very westernised. They were both made in the same year as one another, (1998). Both anime share similar main characters, focusing on their personalities and their past and future. Set in western-like worlds with "cowboy/bounty hunter" themes these anime excel at developing their plots and characters through their endeavours.
Both are a mix of comedy and drama, and both happen in the future and focus on the main characters past.
Both Trigun and Cowboy Bebop have a old west bounty hunting gun slinging theme.
They have the same basic shoot em up wasteland atmosphere, and very likeable main characters.
Both of these are fast-paced, stylish action series. However, what really brings these two anime together is the emphasis on story compared to other generic action anime. Both of the main characters have a great backstory revealed as the story goes on, with very unique personalities.
Both are set in the future.
Both main characters are badass future-coyboys.
Both contain good and similar music: country blues/ rock
Both are based around either being chased by bounty hunters or being bounty hunters.
As well as being awesome, each anime has it's funny moments.
Full of humor and action. Serious when it should be. Good character backstories.
Trigun and Cowboy Bepop are the epitome of classic shows that changed the anime world as a whole and aided the spread of popularity allowing for future success along with other classics like Akira. Both shows have similarities in their episodic style as there tends to be a different story each time around without a true goal shining throughout the entire plot line and this lasts through the first part of Trigun as the characters are developed and introduced. Both shows also share the ability to simply flip a switch and go from a lighter mood to one that is intense creating some of the darker and greater moments in all of anime.
Our main character Vash the Stampede though is kind of the opposite of Spike and the Bepop crew as instead of being a bounty hunter, Vash has the world's largest bounty on his head. This provides an interesting contrast to Bepop increasing the shows enjoyability and the show also often revolves around bounty hunters coming after the bounty on Vash's head. Vash and Spike are similar through their badass combat abilities and ability to be some of the most serious characters in all of anime when needed to be but also at times can be fun loving and hilarious.
If you enjoyed Cowboy Bepop, I highly recommend Trigun. Heck, even if you hated Cowboy Bepop I still recommend Trigun as this anime is one that should be on everyone's list.
same feel really. Both are Vintage classics that you should definitely watch. Both have a very lovable MC , amazing mix of action, comedy, romance.
Other than these being anime classics, they both have a style almost similar. They both Have fun characters, a very thought out story, and a humor all there own. But each character has a back story that is kinda dark. There very well rounded anime stretching to different sides to anime. comedy, action, Drama, it has it all. Plus I can't recommend one of these without the other.
-Both shows were produced in the same year.
-They both take place in the future.
-Both shows are about gun slingers and bounty hunters.
-The main cast of Bebop is similar to Trigun's.
-Both Vash (Trigun) and Spike (Bebop) have a painful past which involved a girl they cannot forget about.
-Spike and Wolfwood are very similar.
they are both shows that can be serious but arent afraid to relax and have fun they are both futuristic western ish showswith great pace.
Although one anime (Trigun) has a Wild West Cowboy feel, and another (Rurouni Kenshin) has Samurai, they both have a simalar story to tell. Both have a main character who dosen't kill no matter the situation, and both main charaters are skilled badasses. If you enjoyed Trigun then you'll probably enjoy Kenshin just the same, and vicea versa.
Both feature a similar main character who is strong, but does not seem strong.
Godly Swordsman/Gunman wanders around in bright-colored clothes determined not to kill anyone and uses his amazing skills to save people leaving everyone around in awe.
The main character in both animes seems like he is totally oblivious and clumsy, but he's really a major badass. That's about the only similarity, besides the fact that they both rock =)
Both protagonists have a dark past, are immensely skilled fighters, and are being hunted for some reason. Both also appear unthreatening and vulnerable until forced to defend themselves and other, are clumsy outside of combat, and serve as their own comic relief.
Both shows feature a highly-skilled warrior with a troubled past, wandering throughout the world on a mission of peace. Yet, despite their efforts, trouble follows them around, constantly challenging their main principle to not take a life.
Of course, this is all done in a hilarious manner, but while in Kenshin the last 20 or so episodes are just funny filler, Trigun turns more serious the closer it gets to the end.
Both protagonists have a troubling past that haunts them and both tries to bring peace to the land without killing. They are both very skilled in combat and both characters can be goofy at times. The only difference is that one has a Western, cowboy setting and the other has a Japanese, samurai setting
both the protagonists have a troubled past that made them swear never to kill again. they also share several other traits plot and character wise
They both involve a mass murderer that somehow suddenly wants peace and vows never to kill anyone and both are awesome
both main heros dont kill they repent for their past killings
Both have seemingly innocent protagonists that despite how clumsy and carefree they seem, they are actually skilled god-like fighters who want nothing more than to save lives and preserve the peace.
While completely different in setting, Rurouni Kenshin and Trigun share a main character who is trying to escape a violent past through a life of pacifism. They are helped along the way by an often pugnacious female and a really cool second male lead. Trigun is thematically like Kenshin, but has action more akin to Cowboy Bebop.
If you like Tirgun you will LOVE Rurouni Kenshin....it's basically Trigun with Swords....the main character also acts like a dumbs like cash did...but he's actually the best swordsman just like cash was the best gunman....soooo cool
These two anime are SO much alike and I think a list will best describe the similarities:
*Both have main characters, who are masters at killing, but are instead pacifists.
*The main struggle of each is that the MC is trying to escape his past, but each must ultimately confront.
*Both are action heavy, but have a very goofy side.
*MC have scars!!!!
Goofy protagonists that can mow down anyone in their way without taking a life, but struggle with their pacifistic ideals as their series continue and their enemies become more dangerous and ruthless.
Both of the main characters make the vow to not kill.
-both are about a wandering person who is a mater of their own respective skills . . .
-both are about justice. . .
-a good blend of comedy and action, not the best but good enough. . .
-Trigun has a western cowboy theme, while Rurouni Kenshin has a traditional Japanese Samurai theme. . .
They main characters have same personality and a crazy goof ball. In the past they had there love one killed by thier enemy, and a tragic past.
Two characters are the same and they both have twin older brothers that despise each other. They even have blond hair and round glasses. Well, besides the physical similarities, both characters are very powerful and different from the average species. Both of the series contains comedy, suspense, action, and some blood. This series are a thrill to enjoy, especially with awesome characters, action, and humor.
They are similar in the way that both shows us the relashonship between two womens but in this case one on the cast female was a male before...
Both protagonists have similar backgrounds. In fact, Abel (Trinity Blood's protagonist) and Vash (Trigun's protagonist) are so similar that the Anime/Manga Character Flaw Website's (http://amcflaws.awardspace.com/) flaw for Abel is:
"if Vash and Alucard ever did the fusion dance, and it failed, they would be him."
Both of the animes have fun loving, seemingly silly main characters who are in fact beings with powerful abilities. Also, both main characters have evil brothers that seek to destroy the world. The similarities really start to become apparent during the last 10 episodes of trinity blood. If you like Trinity blood, you'll probably like Trigun, but it doesn't necessarily work the other way around. Trigun is superior to Trinity blood imho.
Goofy main characters with haunted pasts that carry a great burden and don't really fit in with their world.
To be honest, I'm tempted to say Trinity Blood is just Trigun with vampires, religion, and a darker tone (Trigun tends to be more whimsical and light hearted, using it's dark and serious moments much more sporadically and poignantly, making the contrasting moments pack a bit more punch in Trigun.)
The resemblance between the two shows kind of feels like Flame of Recca vs Yu Yu Hakusho, where the premise and content are so similar that you can't help but draw parallels (maybe even going so far as to wonder if one is a knock off of the other) and can't help but notice that, while you may enjoy both, one definitely pulls it off slightly better.
It's Trigun meets Hellsing. Sounds awesome, I know. Sure it's a gigantic rip off of those two but hey at least it's ripping off two things that are good. How bad could it be? Pretty bad. Seriously just watch Hellsing Ultimate and/or Trigun instead
Cause the main characters are very similar, and they have the same age :D No, really, I think Trigun is very similar to Trinity blood. They also are the same age :D
hmmm... well the plots are very different. but there are several things that remind me of eachother. both fight for good. both are always hungery and broke XD and they both have to deal with alot while helping others. well i cant say much because i have only just started trinity blood. but that shows how simular they are. if you have watched one plz watch another. thanks :)
Take 1 part Vash, 2 parts Wolfwood, and 6 parts short unattractive mega-pervert. Place in a desert oven set to 125° for 17-18 years and you get Kanta "Sunabouzu" Mizuno. Serve with large helpings of big bounties, boisterous badasses, and buxom babes and you get 24 episodes of action packed sexually frustrated hilarity known simply as "Desert Punk"
Both feature Wasteland / after Armageddon type settings and strong comedy elements mixed with nice action and good animation.
A lone wanderer going around and beating the crap out of people in a desert environment.
Both are in this type of desert world, and both main characters travel around. From each episode there's a new story. Both series have guns in them and are action packed. Also the main characters are very comedic.
The two take place in a post-apocalyptic wasteland where the action scenes consist of amazing gun fights. If you liked Lawrence D. Wolfwood then you may like the Punk but be warned, he is a little more merciless than Wolfwood.
Both animes have that western,desert feel with the comedy aspect that uplifts the shows.
*Both protagonists in the series carries a gun and is a proud fighter
*Contains comic relief and crude humor
*Contains similar setting of the desert/wasteland like theme
*Similar personality and style of the main protagonists
Both series a good watch :)
Both anime have the same post-apocalyptic desert setting. They also consist of a goofy, comedic, and nearly unbeatable main character. The only exception is Desert Punk doesn't have a immense background as Vash does. But other than that both anime are pretty much the same.
Both are set in a post apocalyptic desert setting with horny, gun wielding juggernauts as their protagonists that are constantly down on their luck. Though both share similar elements they both end up going in different directions. Trigun tries to preach pacifism and shows the difficulties that come with it while Sunabouzu supports selfish mercilessness and the type of person that that makes you.
Both anime have the same western feeling and the main characters are both searching for the man that killed the women they loved. Plus they have other similarities.
Vash (main character of Trigun) and Van (main character of Gun X Sword) remind me of each other, although not all of their characteristics match. Both main characters are kind of laid back but still hardcore fighters.
Even though Gun X Sword is a mecha-styled show and Trigun isn't, I think if you were to watch the two you could probably make little lines between the shared qualities like the land and towns in both.
The main characters share many characteristics, that include having abilities that aren't human, being chased by events from the past, being (or at least trying to be) loners, being kind and generous, having unusual weapons and they both are funny in their own ways.
The two animes take place in a post apocalptyc enviroment, and the current civilization is like the western type filled with the blessings of the long forgotten technologies.
The main characters are very similar in beliefs, mannerisms, food obsessions, and "hey look at me I'm harmless JUST KIDDING HERE'S MY AWESOME WEAPON!"ness. Even the planets are similar. And just like Trigun the main character bounces from town to town (where his reputation precedes him) in search of the Big Bad Boss guy.
Both shows have that sort of "Mad Max", post-apocalyptic-planet feel to it. Both shows have their main character bent on revenge, but while Vash is a pacifist, Van just doesn't give a damn, yet the two are also absolute badasses, with Vash being an Android and Van having a humongous mech that falls from space. They have seemingly-inept companions accompany them on their merry quest, go on adventures, visit weird towns, need to take up jobs for some money, and the like.
Both felt very similar with the "Adventure Travel" theme. You get the same good feelin' from both of em'.
Both anime are Western genre and are very entertaining on top of that.
Both main characters are really badass and have quirky personalities and will not fail to entertain you throughout the series.
-Differences: Van uses a sword, not a gun
- Gun X Sword has mecha but Trigun does not
Both are great revenge anime!
The Gungrave game's story, in which the anime'ss story is based, was written by the author of Trigun. They have similar pace and feeling of nostalgy. Both are based on western themes and have lone heroes having to deal with errors of the past.
I think both were developed by the same people and this would make sense because they are very similar in style to each other. Trigun is less gory and violent but still very good. Both have a great storyline, higly developed emotional characters, and action packed gun fights. I higly recomend if you enjoyed gungrave to check out trigun you will like it.
Both characters are excellent gunsmen and are portrayed as such throughout their animes, both in their former life. Grave is more on a revenge trip than Vash though and definitely won't hesitate to kill... most of the time. I think Gungrave is a little darker then Trigun but give it a try if you enjoyed Trigun.
While Trigun is filled with comedy and action, anyone with a brain can see the serious undertone of the series, especially in the second half. Gungrave lacks the comedy that was found in Trigun, but the emotional ride is just as good, if not better. Not to mention, the final episode of Gungrave is quite possibly one of the best endings of an anime I have ever seen.
similar storylines of redemption, gungrave is a bit darker. both have a similar badass feel where it counts, especially gungrave. if you want the lighter side of things go for trigun
A more serious and darker version of Trigun, and has one of the best story development ever.
