Vash the Stampede is an on-the-run gunman with a 60 billion double dollar bounty on his head. Needless to say, this makes it hard for him to get around without being shot at or chased. Every town he goes to gets destroyed by his pursuers. He gets followed by 2 insurance agents, Meryl and Milly, in order to try and keep any further damages from occurring. Vash at first sight appears to be a loving, blood hating, donut loving, friendly pacifist, however his past seems to show otherwise.
The plot revolves around the failed attempts at interplanetary colonization, which lands mankind on a desert planet filled with bandits that want to steal your food and water. Little to no law exists, and there is miles of land between the barely habitable areas. As the story progresses, Vash is accompanied by two insurance agents, and as he moves about, his true colors begin to show as he is forced into various kinds of trouble.
Vash is a true pacifist. However, since hes so good with his 6 shooters, and since all the towns he visits happen to blow up, people tend to misjudge and fear him. The characters are well done, varying from the gunslinging preacher Wolfwood to the cheerful insurance agent Milly Thompson. Every supporting character have their own motives, which is both fun and interesting.
I’d say the best thing about Trigun is that its a madhouse of random fun and action, comedy, and sci-fi; its almost like an amusement ride. Hell, theres even a bit of romance in it.
Trigun not only is fun but it also looks nice. The animation is good, along with the music. And it has one hell of a guitar intro song! Everyone should really see Trigun, not only because its such a well known anime, but also because its pretty hilarious.
