Editorial Reviews

One of the best-loved series of the '90s, Trigun has lost none of its appeal in the years since its debut. Exactly who and what is Vash the Stampede, a.k.a. "The Humanoid Typhoon"? To bounty hunters, he's the galaxy's most notorious gunslinger with 60 billion Double Dollars on his head. To people in trouble, he's a friend in need. To pretty women, he's a well-intentioned but inept flirt. And to Meryl Stryfe and Millie Thompson of the Bernardelli Insurance Society, he's a walking disaster who's cost the company a fortune. Vash wanders from town to town on a desert planet that looks like the American Old West, unsuccessfully pursuing peace, doughnuts, and "the elusive mayfly known as love." Meryl and Millie follow him, trying to minimize the devastation (and the bills), but Vash's only real friend is gun-totin' preacher Nicholas Wolfwood. Despite their grudging affection, Wolfwood sums up the other characters' thoughts when he tells Vash, "When you're around, things always seem to get a whole lot worse!" Sometimes comic and kooky, sometimes gentle and earnest, Vash reveres life and agonizes over the bloodshed he inadvertently causes. He'd rather eat than demonstrate his amazing marksmanship, yet he's powerful enough to blast a new crater into the Moon. Younger otaku who missed the initial release will enjoy discovering this anime classic. (Rated 13 and older: violence, alcohol and tobacco use) --Charles Solomon

Product Description

Vash the Stampede is a wanted man with the habit of turning entire towns into rubble. The price on his head is a fortune, and his path of destruction reaches across the arid wastelands of a desert planet. Unfortunately, most encounters with the spiky-haired gunslinger don't end well for the bounty hunters who catch up with him; someone always gets hurt - and it's never Vash. Oddly enough, for such an infamous fugitive, there's no proof that he's ever taken a life. In fact, he's a pacifist with a doughnut obsession who's more doofus than desperado. There's a whole lot more to him than his reputation lets on - Vash the Stampede definitely ain't your typical outlaw.

5.0 out of 5 stars Gun Fun! September 3, 2010
Meryl and Milly are two insurance agents with a mission: find Vash The Stampede, a man with a $$60 billion bounty on his head, and stop him from causing any more damage! With a bounty that big and followed by a wake of destruction, Vash must be big, intimidating, and down right scary! Right? To Meryl's constant aggravation and disbelief, Vash turns out to be a friendly, doughnut loving pacifist. Its hard to believe that he has survived this long! But there is more to Vash then meets the eye, and the series starts to turn dark as Vash's past is brought to light.

This is a very entertaining series. The first half is mostly comedic Western style short stories, i.e. Bad guy threatens people and Vash bumbles his way in and saves the day with his amazing gun skills. Vash is one of the best anime characters I've seen and it is lots of fun to watch him save the day. The guy that shares the cover with him is Nicholas Wolfwood, and the two of them are excellent foils to each other. Around episode 15, things start heating up as the story starts focusing more on Vash's mysterious past.

I normally watch anime in Japanese, but when a dub is truly impressive I make an exception. This was one of those dubs. Johnny Yong Bosch does an awesome job as Vash, and all of the rest of the cast does a good job as well.

Trigun is one of my favorite anime series, one I recommend to just about anyone, be they anime fans or not! This release looks good too - with 26 episodes on 4 discs, it doesn't take up too much shelf space. I don't know what the video and audio quality will be like, but it is bound to be better than my imported Hong Kong set!

***UPDATE 10/15/10***
It has been pointed out that on Amazon's image of this product, it says that it is 24 episodes on 4 DVDs.

5.0 out of 5 stars Hysterical and action-packed...a great anime series! January 20, 2004
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
He's prone to whining, crying and throwing tantrums, but Vash still manages to get the job done! Since I was introduced to Cowboy Bebop a little over a year ago, I've seen many different Anime, and I have to say flat out that Trigun is my favorite. Ironic, considering that Vash the Stampede is the epitome of everything I couldn't stand about Anime before I became a fan, but I actually find Vash to be completely hysterical, and one my favorite anime characters.
Its Wild West meets futuristic Sci-Fi in this anime about a man with names like 'The Humanoid Typhoon' and 'The 60 Billion Double Dollar Man'. Beleived to be the cause of mass destruction wherever he goes, Vash is actually a misunderstood, friendly and peace-loving individual...who is armed to the teeth, with superhuman strength and speed, the sharpest eye on the planet, and a 60 Billion Double Dollar bounty on his head that many are just itching to get their hands on. He hates violence and won't bring himself to kill anyone...and he has his reasons.
The overall plot of the show is great, but only loosely follows the Manga, since the anime is very different towards the end. Every episode is a continuation in the overall story. The first few episodes are mostly comical, but as the series progresses, Vash's true enemies reveal themselves and the show begins taking a darker tone. Many revelations about Vash's mysterious origins are revealed, and at about the middle of the show there is an origin episode that explains it a bit moe. That said, this anime is both completely hysterical and filled with great action. Vash's ridiculous behavior, stupid facial expressions and whining and screaming add a whole dimension to the character. Half the time when I watched this show, I was laughing.

5.0 out of 5 stars Release date! October 26, 2010
By YenYen
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Other people have already written better descriptions of this series than I think I can manage but I just want to affirm that this is quite possibly one of the best buys I've EVER had the chance to catch on amazon in a long time. A friend of mine had the original release boxset but I dare say mine is nicer and has even more special features than hers!

ALL 26 ORIGINAL EPISODES are included - there is/was a typo regarding this in the product description stating 24 instead of 26 - with both English/Japanese language and English subtitle settings available and the new boxset also includes textless songs as well as additional trailers.

This is a must have for any serious anime lover and I highly recommend that if you're considering investing in a great series that has high re-watch ability this is one to own! Still not sure? Check out 24 of the 26 episodes on hulu and I promise you won't be disappointed.

5.0 out of 5 stars Trigun - An amazing work of Animation January 26, 2003
This single word signifies the epic series that changed my view of Japanese Anime in nearly a heartbeat. Up until I was subjected to the story portrayed in said series, I was aware of only a handful of extremely wonderful Japanese Anime programs, specifically Ranma ˝ and Dragon Ball Z, to name a few.
Considering that my view of Japanese Anime is limited to more-or-less the aforementioned series, I was a little unprepared for what lay ahead in the 26 episode mini-saga of Trigun.
For those not in the know, Trigun was released in 1998, was originally created by Yasuhiro Nightow (manga) and is directed by Satoshi Nishimura (Anime). It is the story of Vash the Stampede (Johnny Young) and his struggle to come to terms with his tortured past. Becoming involved along the way with the misguided Humanoid Typhoon are Milly Thompson (Lia Sargent) and Meryl Strife (Dorothy Melendrez) of the Bernadelli Insurance Agency, who were assigned to Vash in an attempt to avert the damage he may cause in his future exploits.
Also drawn into Vash's destiny is Nicholas D. Wolfwood, a traveling priest who carries a massive cross that carries an amazing secret. Trying to escape a sordid past of his own, Vash and Wolfwood are fast friends.
These are the four main characters of the story. Along the way they come across some pretty colorful characters, ranging from crazy drunks to crazy puppet masters. It's madness!
As I said before, the story involves Vash the Stampede and his endless struggle to come to terms with his horrid past and a shadowy figure that haunts him throughout his life. Vash is a pacifist to the extreme. Despite his reputation as a horrid, womanizing destroyer of towns, Vash would rather kick back and enjoy a nice plate of donuts than fight an opponent.

Blu-ray Version?
Hello. Seeing as no one has replied to your question, I will try, if you still care after this much time... No, I still do not see a Blu-ray edition available, unfortunately. And how many months has it been since the re-issue ? Five or so, roughly. And still no news or even rumors about a Blu-ray... Read More

Anyone who owns the Remix DVDs and this box set
I do no own the new set, but I've seen uboxings on YouTube, the discs are a different design and have more episodes per disc but do not have the original episode openings that the remix set has. The new set has four discs instead of six.

Single- or double-sided discs?
I've never heard of double sided discs from Funimation. Basically they release 6/7 episodes on a disc times 2 for the 12/13 episodes shows. So I think depending on the number of episodes Trigun has(Sorry I havent watched before) they probably split it evenly.
