The choices one makes. The excuses one uses. What do they mean in the end if you don't get what you want? The time for the ultimate show down has arrived, but will Vash be able to save everyone? Can he save anyone? Trigun Vol. 8 (Episodes 23, 24, 25 & 26). The Final Volume! Featuring a limited edition chromium onsert! (While supplies last.)
In these final four episodes, the saga of Vash the Stampede builds to the climactic confrontation between Vash and his vicious twin, Knives. Director Satoshi Nishimura and writer Yosuke Kuroda also sort out the fates of the other characters: gun-toting preacher Nicholas V. Wolfwood reveals a surprising past; sorrow gives Milly an unexpected strength, shifting the balance between her and Meryl. Vash also has to deal with the last of the Gung-Ho Guns, including Legato Bluesummers. These confrontations involve some agonizing decisions, and voice actor Johnny Yong Bosh articulates Vash's suffering in an exceptional performance. Before the final face-off, the filmmakers show some of the backstory of Vash and Knives, which they began to explore in episode 17. But Nishimura and Kuroda fail to supply some important information: it's been clear all along that Vash isn't human, but what is he? Trigun ends on an upbeat note that will please its many fans, despite the unanswered questions. Apparently no one expected the series to become so popular when it hit the states in 2000; there's already talk of additional episodes or a feature. Sometimes comic and kooky, sometimes gentle and earnest, Vash stands out as one of the most appealing and individual characters in recent anime. It seems unlikely that the artists would end the adventures of a figure with so much potential--and so many fans. Rated 13 and up for violence and mild profanity. --Charles Solomon

Trigun takes place on the planet Gunsmoke. The plot revolves around Vash the Stampede, an outlaw whose head is worth $$60,000,000,000. The Humanoid Typhoon. He passes through towns only to leave them in ruins. A man so feared that when people see him, they run...Take two insurance women, Meryl and Milly. Their mission is to track down this man to stop him from causing anymore trouble...
Trigun is an anime that mainly relies on character development. As the series goes on, more and more of the character's pasts becomes revealed till you finally see the whole picture. That's what makes it so hard to wait to see the next volume. You just can't wait to get another piece of the puzzle.
In the eighth and final installment of my favorite anime, Vash will finally confront the demon of his past, Knives. He must finally settle the score he vowed to settle years ago. But can can Vash actually put away his pacifistic nature and finish Knives off? Well find out yourself by getting the final chapter to this epic anime!
Well . . . I watched the first episode and was hooked! What an awesome show! The ending is fitting and left me satisfied. If you have only seen the show on Adult-Swim, I highly recommend buying all the DVDs, or at least the last, since the real ending is played out in the credits and is not entirely shown on Adult-Swim.
Now I find myself stuck in the same position as my friend. I cannot explain this show adequately to anyone without making it sound lame! I just make them watch it and get them hooked that way!
