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.

Similar happy-go-lucky food loving main characters and also both are set in western inspired worlds.

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.

Nana and Vash are good-natured, goofy and very idealistic characters who use their strength to do what they think is right, yet they are not foolhardy or obnoxious. Pacifism and even Vash's catchphrase (the world is made of) "love and peace" are pervading Tripeace as well. They are both inherently wacky, with many different colorful characters, and it is very easy to build strong bonds to these characters. Both Trigun and Tripeace build their their unique, yet easily accessible world. Shiro is like an action version of Merryl in that she is a straight man and very serious, but she is more of a fighting badass than  read more

Both include fighters, who are taking action in a peculiar place. Sci-fi and full of action.

Both are made by the same author Nightow. Both of them have uniquely zany characters and humor with a sci-fi setting. Both of the main characters Vash and Leo are kind-hearted although I'd probably compare Klaus as the Vash "equivalent" since he's the strong unwavering character like Vash. Although there isn't much of a solid plot yet in Kekkai Sensen, if you are a fan of Nightow his way of story telling alone should be enough to make one enjoy this series.

The main characters are both extremely op and have a hidden past.

This also applies to Trigun Maximum A happy-go-lucky type main character with a gun, have amazing power by either by the gun or by themselves, set in a western-like environment. A "priest" with questionable background and motives , Morality conflict among some of the characters at times (though Trigun is much darker and mature), traveling the wasteland to achieve some kind of goal. Though they are very different in terms of story/goal, you can get the same atmosphere and feeling from both of these manga.

both main character are good people but are label as evil since many people die where ever they go.

The plots aren't similar, but the main characters in both are very alike, background and personality-wise. They are both happy, accident-prone knuckleheads who are hiding a dark, destructive past. If you're not used to romance, which you can find in Trinity Blood, it's well worth sitting through to watch the bloody battle scenes. Not to mention both will have you laughing histerically.

SF story with Wild West elements. 
reportRecommended by metallian
The story seems similar as in the protagonist has a very large potential for personal gain yet instead uses their abilities to help others arounf them. In Trigun, Vash wanders from place to place while in Rurouni Kenshin, Kenshin wanders after the war like Vash does. Also in both mangas, the main character is drawn towards a female character who at first resents and even gets extremely annoyed at them, but later warms up to them.

Both manga have an old-west theme, and both have a main character who you can laugh at most of the time, but when he gets serious his skills seem unmatched. 
reportRecommended by Kantenjiu
Vash and Exa could be the same characters accidentally placed in two different manga. Both want to achieve peace throughout the world by "not killing anyone". It's all about self-sacrifice and "love and peace" for the main characters. Packed with comedy and action, if you enjoyed one, you'll undoubtedly enjoy the other.  
reportRecommended by Xinil
Both series revolve around a surprisingly nice living natural disaster, both of whom have enormous bounties on their heads, and take a pacifist approach despite how easily they could kill anyone and everyone who stands in their way. Both characters caused widespread disaster in their backstory for reasons that are kept hidden. Their motivation revolves around a woman in their backstory whose significance is kept vague. They also have a brother with similar abilities, who they are enemies with. 
reportRecommended by Lindle
Vash and Kyo are fairly similar individuals. Both have powerful sides, while their outward sides are peaceful (albeit perverted) goofballs. They even preach "LOVE AND PEACE!" Also, both have girls who initially follow them due to the ludicrous bounty on their head, but gradually come to care for them. Keep in mind Trigun is the more peaceful episodic part while Maximum is the "serious business" continuation.
