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?

I really wanted to enjoy this manga, I really did. I love the anime and it's honestly one of my favorites out there. Reading pieces of information from the Wiki made me eager to read the manga as well...

But there is one major issue: it's borderline unreadable.

Yasuhiro Nightow can draw, sure, but he seems to struggle when it comes to making a readable drawing, particularly in action sequences. There is no flow between panels and so many of the panels I honestly cannot figure out what they're supposed to be. Sometimes I can make up a mangled figure. Sometimes I can find a gun. read more

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.

I've heard only great things about the anime, so I was really looking forward to the manga. Unfortunately I was only disappointed.

Before I get into the spoiler-heavy critique of the plot, I'll start with an overview of the other aspects.

The art:
The art style is a bit of a hit or miss. There are some panels that are truly gorgeous. But most of the action sequences, and even some non-action, fall under the somewhat common 90's manga trope of messy to the point of being hard to follow.

The characters:
Vash is interesting, or at least has the potential to be. He's a seemingly easy going character, read more
