Trigun is a story in the fictional world of Gunsmoke
, a desert planet holding a special kind of man called Vash the Stampede. He is best known as the Humanoid Typhoon and his bounty of sixty billion dollars, making him a value breathing or dead. Then there's the insurance girls; a short hair and hot headed
typewriter named Meryl Strife and her tall, but slow minded
partner, Milly Thompson. Later in the series, another character comes to the party and joins the three in the name of Nicolas D. Wolfwood, a preacher
that is similar to Vash, not similar in morals.
The story and characters in Trigun is top-notch and is backed up with a great sense in comedy, especially from Vash himself as he is portrayed as a donut loving goofball
digested in his own ego. That doesn't hide the fact that he is also a person that doesn't enjoy killing and makes sure to handle all situations benevolently.
That's when the series starts to throw away the funny
and introduce Legato, a telepathic nihilist
working for Million Knives.
People started dying horribly and moments in the anime starts to be extremely dark and extremely depressing
, as it starts to affect the main characters in the worst possible way.
Overall, Trigun is a action packed comedy turned dramedy with memorable characters, amazing animation and a kickass soundtrack, along with its opening. The dub however is debatable, because both the Japanese and English dubs stands out as equally jaw dropping. Personally, I choose the dub, because the content of the show was born to be in english. JYB
made an amazing first impression as Vash and caused this show to be a pinpoint to his new career. The only problem of the show is its small, but isn't enough to make this legendary. Its animation can be lacking, but like I Said it's minor. This show is one the best and hopefully it would be more memorable in the near future.
This space western gets 9.5 out of 10.
