Who and what is Vash the Stampede, the hero of the popular fantasy-adventure Trigun? The outlaw with the 60,000,000,000 "double-dollar" bounty on his head or the good-hearted goof who'd rather eat donuts than fight? The poetic seeker of "the elusive mayfly known as love" or the jerk who goes gaga when a female comes within 20 feet of him? The pacifist who refuses to kill his enemies or the possessor of the power to destroy entire cities?

A sci-fi road story set on a desert planet that recalls the American West, Trigun offers a mixture of slapstick humor and violent action reminiscent of Rurouni Kenshin. Ex-assassin Kenshin Himura is a wanderer who wants to settle down and enjoy peaceful times with the group of friends he's assembled, but political exigencies force him into action. Vash is a more determined vagabond who also uses his destructive powers and crack marksmanship very reluctantly. Both men bear the external scars of battle and the internal wounds of romantic tragedy. But Vash lacks Kenshin's icy self-discipline and the love that makes his onerous past bearable. In his travels, Vash is accompanied by Meryl Stryfe and Millie Thompson of the Bernardelli Insurance Society, who try to minimize the liabilities the one-man disaster area causes. The closest thing he has to a friend is the itinerant priest Nicholas D. Wolfwood, and even he tells Vash, "When you're around, things always seem to get worse!" As Vash, actor Johnny Yong Bosh shifts effortlessly from anti-heroic suffering to adolescent exuberance.

The Limited Collector's Edition I comprises the first half of the series, which begins slowly. Director Satoshi Nishimura gradually accelerates the pace and suspense as Vash's enemies circle him warily, like hyenas waiting for a lion to stumble. Extras include the original Japanese promotional spots and a bullet necklace. (Rated 13 and older: violence, alcohol and tobacco use) --Charles Solomon

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 much about the video and audio quality, but it is easy to say it is 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.

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.

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.

(Note: This review is for the Limited Collector's Edition I (With Steel Case), not the Boxed set... For some reason the reviews are showing up in both places.)

This popular anime series just got better. In addition to the collector's tin containing the first 14 episodes remastered in Dolby 5.1 Surround Sound, this edition comes with a collectable copper bullet pendant with TRIGUN etched down the length of the shell. The pendant also comes in a small black velvet draw-string pouch.

What's New on the Discs:

- Dolby Digital 5.1 Surround Sound in English and Japanese. The surround element alone makes this edition worth owning. The re-mastering was done very well. (For kicks, I turned on the Japanese audio with English subtitles. This is my own personal opinion, but I think the voice talent on the English version is one of the main reasons why this series has sold so well in the United States. The voices performed by the English-speaking actors not only seem to match the characters more closely, but the English-speaking actor's overall voice acting talents are demonstrably better.)

- Original Japanese Opening Sequences. For the most part, it is the same as the English version with the exception that the credits are in Japanese. English subtitles are optional. However, starting with the third episode, the opening sequence is changed slightly to show brief clips from the current episode. These usually consist of a shot of Vash followed by a shot of the main adversary for the episode.

- Original Japanese Trigun television spots. These are interesting to watch, however no translation is provided for them.

- Trailers for other anime produced by Geneon.
