I recomend this to anyone.
Irina Meylikhov
Its is just so funny at sometimes and Vash is a raging geek, yet somehow pulls off this coolness that makes people like him.

Trigun has loveable characters, good plot, plenty o' action, and hilarious antics.

I bought this anime on a whim, knowing next to nothing about the plot and the characters. My reasons? It looked interesting and what I read about it made it sound like a good choice. I wasn't disappointed. Trigun is a very comical anime (don't let the cover fool you) which centers around Vash the Stampeded (aka the Humanoid Typhoon) with a $$60 billion dollar price on his head. Without getting into too many details, Vash has this bounty because every town he walks into inevitably gets destroyed. He is by no means a mean-spirited man, quite the opposite in fact, always outwitting his enemies either through skill or sheer luck (more-so the latter). His comedic actions and slap-stick answers to every situation hides a mysterious past however. The animation, while simple at times, is done very well, with good use of colors to offset the important characters from the everyday townsfolk (i.e. Vash wears a red overcoat). The music also has a decidedly western "twang" to it, with guitars setting the mood for many of the episodes. Overall one of the better anime series that I've seen recently. If you're in the mood to sit back and laugh and then be amazed, I highly recommend Trigun (I also recommend it if you're like me, who is a glutton for those "simple plot"-turned-serious-myterious-past animes ^_^). Whatever you favor, get this anime, it's well worth it.

Vash the Stampede (aka The Human Typhoon) has got to be one of my favorite anime characters of all time. I picked this up from my local rental store expecting some typical anime ultra-violence.
I was pleasantly surprised that it was exactly the opposite. Trigun is hilarious. Vash is the typical lovable, bumbling hero that turns out to be a villain. (That made absolutely no sense here, but you have to see the DVD to understand!) There are plenty of shoot-em-up scenes to appease all you anime violence buffs, but this is easily one of the few animes you wouldn't mind showing your younger siblings. This anime is very well drawn and one of the few imports I actually think sounds better in English than in its original Japanese.
I love everything about this title, and the additional artwork you get in the DVD's extra's section is pretty cool, but more pics would have been nice.
I can't wait for the next installment of Vash! I highly recommend this one.

Trigun is an incredible anime piece. I've watched the entire series, and I can basically give you the jest of what this series is about. Don't worry, I don't plan on giving anyone any spoilers. =)
Trigun revolves around the guy you see on the DVD box. Duh! =P But anyway, unlike what you see on the box, Vash (him), is a very complex character who will surprise you as the anime unfolds in later episodes. In this first DVD, you'll be introduced to Vash as the baffoon! You wonder how such an incompetant person could be worth such a high bounty. Of course, it doesn't mean he's not likeable. You may question his worth, but you'll still definitely like him. Basically, he's clumsy in a "likeable" sort of way.
This anime is done with some serious style! While the animation is not fluid like Ghost in the Shell, it definitely wouldn't disappoint. The music score follows right along with the overall western theme, the story is deep and entertaining, and it'll definitely make you want more. The other main characters will grow on you like a fungus too.
My overall review? Go for it! This is an anime series worth investing in. And don't worry about Vash who acts like a baffoon. As the episodes progress, you'll see that he has a deeper intelligence, wisdom, and a sense of honor which will earn your respect, make you want to be just like him. =)

You're probably wondering just how much of an action this is, or just how funny it really is. Well, let me just start off by saying, don't let the McFarlane Toys action figure fool you. When I saw that toy, I thought Trigun would be a really brutal guns & bullets anime with a hip sci fi theme.
In actuallity, after investigating the anime and then buying & watching it myself, it turned out Trigun is a western. Now, in this western we have a fair amount of action, with some very cool weapons. It's not terribly bloody, just violent at times. Also, there is a good deal of comedy thrown in, in the same way "Lethal Weapon" does. The difference between Vash the Stampede and Mel Gibson is that Vash is a lot goofier.
I enjoyed this anime very much and look forward to seeing the other volumes. The animation is very nice, the characters are personable, and it is a lot of fun. It wasn't as humorous as I expected, but I wasn't disappointed, either. It's not "Dragon Half" or "Wicked City"....there is comedy and there is violence, but it doesn't lean one way or the other. Keep that in mind, as people seem to be fooled by the cover.
Anyway, it is an enjoyable anime and I recommend it. The DVD edition is great, too. It has perfect dubbed and subtitled versions (the subtitled version is the best, of course), as well as some nice bonus features, including character sketches. Be sure to check Trigun out!
