Storyline

Trigun takes place in the distant future on a deserted planet. Vash the Stampede is a gunfighter with a legend so ruthless that he has a $$60,000,000,000 bounty on his head. Entire towns evacuate at the rumor of his arrival. However, the real Vash the Stampede is not the same man that rumor portrays him to be. The enigmatic and conflicted lead character in Trigun is actually more heroic in nature; as well as a complete and utter idiot at times. Written by Toonzone.com

Trigun- a story like no other
16 May 2006 | by See all my reviews

Trigun, for me, is one of the best stories I have ever experienced. It is the story of Vash the Stampede, and his search for truth. He lives by a creed in which he refuses to kill a human life, and he takes on a demeanor that shuns even the thought of killing another person. No matter the situation, no matter the danger, no matter the trouble he would save if only he would pull the trigger, Vash refuses to kill another human being. He has the ability to destroy the entire planet, but all he wants is to live a normal life. Vash is a character who loves and respects all life. There are times during his travels, however, where Vash becomes enraged at his adversaries. He does this not because they try to kill him, not because they want the $$60 billion that go with his head, but because his enemies show no value for human life- this is simply too much for Vash to stand. Only at those times does he let loose his anger. Even then, he refuses to kill another life.

During the story, Vash experiences terrible trials that push him over the edge, and he experiences an incredible amount of grief over the pain that he thinks he causes, all to save lives. I remember one scene where the grief he feels over what he does is so unbearable that he just starts sobbing so helplessly- I had tears come to my eyes. Vash does nothing morally wrong throughout the entire 26 episodes.

I am a Christian, and all I could think about during the episodes is how Vash's value of life resembles Jesus. It sounds kinda corny, I know, but watching Trigun has had a profound affect on my life, and I would offer my highest recommendation for anyone looking for an amazing, emotionally gripping story.

Humor, awesome gun battles, questions about ethics, and love- its all there. You have to see it to experience it for yourself.
