In town surrounded by quicksand, an outlaw from Vash the Stampede’s past has resurfaced after twenty years. His name is Gasback – and he’s looking to cause a little trouble. It seems Gasback has a serious beef with the town’s mayor, who’s paying dozens of bounty hunters to protect his turf. One of those hired guns is a beautiful woman with a vendetta against Gasback. Will she get a shot at revenge? Maybe, if she can get through Gasback’s bodyguard, Wolfwood. And what’s Vash got to do with this mess? Nothing much – except for the fact that he personally set off the entire chain of events two decades ago!

Long-time anime fans should be no stranger to the world of Trigun. For all the goofy, donut-eating, light-hearted, love and peace(~!) moments and all the unknowing and spontaneous chaos and destruction brought about by just his mere presence alone, The Humanoid Typhoon, Vash the Stampede, is renowned for his naive, yet charming personality and is easily one of the more memorable characters in anime lore. But good grief, can you believe it's been 12 years since the TV series ended? Needless to say, the Sixty Billion Double Dollar Man is back for another go-around. If you're new to the anime medium and have no idea what I'm talking about, Trigun is an anime Spaghetti Western (with a little bit of sci-fi) that follows the adventures of Vash the Stampede, a socially-labeled outlaw of outlaws that is said to be the worst thing you could come across at any point of your life. They say he's big, they say he's bad, and if you're lucky they say you'll die a quick death! But in truth, it's just a bunch of rumors.
As I mentioned earlier about his happy-go-lucky qualities, Vash the Stampede is just trying to live his life and make the world a better place along his travels. Unfortunately, trouble does follow him pretty much everywhere he goes. Character analysis aside, this film is a one-shot story taking place in the Trigun universe in which a bank robber named Gasback is foiled by his own henchmen, only to be saved by Vash, but then pursues a plot of revenge against his former cronies. In the meantime, the last remaining target of Gasback's vengeance has put a rather large bounty on anyone who can stop him. I can't say much else that could entice newcomers, but if you've seen the series and know its material you will absolutely love the atmosphere.Read more ›
Trigun is one the classic anime TV series from the 90s but donft expect this movie to expand on any of the themes of the original. It is feature length side story involving a bank robbery gone wrong, a crew lead by the infamous robber Gasback is betrayed by his crew and twenty years later he is about to exact his final act of revenge. Gasback has a bounty of 300bn on his head and rumours of his next heist draws bounty hunters everywhere to Macca City, including Vash the Stampede.
If you havenft seen or donft remember the TV series (I can barely recall much about the story) Vash is a misunderstood bounty hunter who has built up a criminal reputation for being involved large robberies. People call him the humanoid typhoon but in reality he is there to prevent the crime from succeeding and stop anyone from getting killed. Vashfs normal demeanor is an obnoxious goofball which makes an excellent cover mistaking him for an impostor.
Twelve years ago this sort of cartoony comedic action was the norm but Trigun differed in that it had an interesting backstory and world. It is set in a futuristic wild west but not in the way Cowboy Bebop was, it is more steam punk with a mix of old and new but very steeped in the traditional western atmosphere of deserts, isolated towns and rampant crime.Read more ›
Trigun: Badlands Rumble is a great movie, especially if you love the earlier parts of the original Trigun series. What I love the most about this movie, though, is that it really feels like it could fit in with the continuity of the original story line. The dynamics between the characters are developed only to the point they would be if you were watching this within the timeline of the anime.
The animation is great. There is a lot of computer animation, but it is integrated very well with the 2-D animation (for example, the computer animation is shot at the same rate as the 2-D animation, making it appear seamlessly integrated, instead of ultra-smooth compared to the comparatively choppy 2-D animation). The action scenes are really well choreographed and animated as well.
The character designs are more reminiscent of the manga (particularly visible in Milly's character design and Vash's coat design), and the world is bigger, as if borrowing from the manga (especially where robots and cyborgs are concerned). The world is fuller and you really feel like you're in the middle of a bustling city.
The new voice actors for Meryl, Milly, and Wolfwood are pretty good. The first time I watched it in English, I felt like something was off, but the second time I watched it, I found myself not really noticing, and in fact enjoying, the new voices.
Bottom line: if you like Trigun in its wacky hi-jinks phase, you'll love this movie. Check it out!
