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?

Having been an old Trigun fan (since they showed the anime in the old Adult Swim) this is such a great treat. I remember I once read the original Trigun manga but I don't remember it as well...

Moving on, Trigun Maximum is the best manga I've read in a long while. It's mostly good because we get to see the Vash/Knives fight work itself out and meet a good bunch of characters.

STORY: It mostly consists of Vash's vow to never kill another human being and having to go on about the world, spreading his "peace and love" routine while having enemies that randomly show ...

I was very careful with this criticism. Trigun was one of the first manga I read, and also one of the best.

Tells the story of Humanoid Typhoon Vash the Stampede. Vash is the most feared gunslinger in a desert land, with a reward of 60 billion double by his head, and held responsible for the complete destruction of the City of July. However Vash is a staunch pacifist who avoids aggression to the fullest and not admit killing under any circumstances.

Regardless of like violence or not, haunts him: the places visited by Vash are always devastated by their well-meaning interventions or people seeking the reward. ...

It's not a very good manga, the art is shitty and badly detailed, I had trouble seeing what was going on in a lot of panels. The character development is non-existent. The action doesn't work because of the aforementioned poor art and I'm just more of a edgelord who prefers to see the protagonist kill his enemies so I guess the whole premise of Trigun just wasn't for me. (Although the series does get darker later on)

The comedy was not very good so the darker turn when it became seinen was welcomed, but overall I just didn't care for it.
