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.
Now we enter the pride of Trigun, characters that were introduced in manga. Every person important to the plot is presented so well, that we can almost imagine them as real. Vash, the main protagonist, is depicted far more, then characters in other series. He has human feelings and thoughts, which almost everytime he tries to hide from others.
Trigun is well balanced, so while there are some sad moments, they're just the night before the dawn. You rarely have time to be bored, because with every story, you uncover the real profile of the 60,000,000,000$$ bounty, Vash the Stampede.
To sum up, Trigun is almost a must have on your manga (or anime) list. If you have not at least tried to read/watch it, now is your chance.read more
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.
If you like the anime series, you might like the manga version. Or maybe the Maximum version of the manga. Whatever you choose is up to you. Read it and see for yourself.read more
This one is a little hard to review because of the fact that it is only Half of the series so i guess this is half a review O_O.
anyway Trigun is about a comedic, pacifistic gunman with a 6,000,000,000 $ bounty on his head so pretty much everywhere he goes he gets shot at by greedy mercenaries, crazy villains, Sad poor people in need of money etc. as the series progresses you learn of vash's past and why he is who he is. Vash meets some of the most memorable characters in his travels like the Sarcastic Priest Wolfwood, The Insurance Girls Milly and Meyrl and his evil brother Knives( BEST VILLAIN NAME EVER. The way Vash interatcts with these characters is unforgettable and enjoyable. Trigun was cancelled when the magazine it was published in got cancelled but then iit gt picked up by "Young King OURs" under the name trigun maximum.
