Synopsis

Much of the damage attributed to "Vash" is caused by the activities of bounty hunters who are after the 60,000,000,000$$ (sixty billion "double dollars") reward on Vash's head for the destruction of a city called July. Vash does not clearly remember the destruction of July, and only wants "love and peace", as he puts it; though he is a gunfighter of inhuman skill, he uses his weapons only to save lives wherever he can.

As the series progresses, more is gradually learned about Vash's mysterious history and the history of the human civilization on Gunsmoke, the desert planet the series is set on. The series is often humorous in tone, but at the same time it involves very serious character development and especially in later episodes it becomes quite emotionally intense. Vash is occasionally joined by a priest, Nicholas D. Wolfwood, who is almost as good a gunfighter as Vash himself, and later is targeted by a band of assassins known as the Gung-Ho Guns for reasons which are mysterious at first.

Trigun evolves into a very serious discussion of the nature of morality, posing questions such as: What is the nature of morality? Can we judge different moral codes? If a person is forced to betray their moral code, does that betrayal invalidate that moral code, and can the person still try to live up to that moral code? Can the person find redemption from their wrongs, and if so, how?

60,000,000,000$$ man who is a pacifist. Even that short sentence gives it all. But why would a guy like him be worth so much? Well it's for you, reader, to uncover.
Manga Trigun is a mix-up of future and western.
The story behind it is quite good, although it can be a bit confusing. When you finally add everything, it's not as good as it could be, but nonetheless it's worth reading.
Art is slightly worse, just because sometimes, while Vash is struggling against others, you don't really know what happened. Also the art itself is not incredible, but it's not that important.

I never watched much of the anime series. But I can tell it's a good one by reading the manga. The original Trigun manga has only two volumes which is a bummer, but it continues in a series called Trigun Maximum. This manga series tells some of the journeys Vash has had in the anime.
The stories in volume one have some great moments most of which are humorous. However in the volume two, Vash is more seroius and there aren't many funny moments in it. So that basically takes away some points. But the characters are still great at least.

Trigun and Eat-Man are quite similar. A man who seems to have lived for a long time is wandering the planet interacting with it's people. Then sometime in the middle of the story he must go and defeat the main antagonist.
These stories are characters are so similar that you might swear they are simply an alternate universe of each other. Both stories involve a guy character with a huge bounty on his head, who has a dark past involving a girl who has died. Also, both of the guy characters cant die until they meet a certaint person.
If you like Immortal Rain, you will, without a doubt, like Trigun.
