Product Description

Bonds of love and friendship are strong, but some can only be preserved when they are severed. Vash must leave his friends and happiness behind as he walks the treacherous and bloody path prepared by Legato. The body count begins to rise as the Gung-Ho Guns enter the picture, but Vash will do anything he can to preserve life.

Amazon.com

In "Little Arcadia," insurance investigators Meryl and Milly defend a courageous pair of homesteaders against an evil land baron and his hired thugs, the bizarre Marilyn Nebraska and Friends--with Vash supplying a little covert assistance. The tone darkens as the conflict between Vash the Stampede and the bloodthirsty Legato Bluesummers escalates. Legato murders criminals, whom he dismisses as trash, "to teach them the pain of living." His actions and attitude appall Vash, who values life.

Rather than duel with Vash, Legato hires the Gung-Ho Guns, a succession of weird assassins. Vash outwits Dominique the Cyclops, whose mysterious powers derive from the Demon's Eye of the title. In "Fifth Moon," the futuristic samurai Rai-Dei the Blade wounds Vash and threatens to kill him. His threats trigger a violent, unexpected reaction: Vash somehow produces a blast of energy that levels the entire city, burns a gaping hole in the moon, and attracts itinerant preacher Nicholas D. Wolfwood. The power he unleashes explains Vash's alternate moniker, "The Humanoid Typhoon."

As they watch the destruction from a distance, Meryl and Milly are heartbroken to learn they've been taken off the supervision of Vash and ordered to return to Bernardelli Insurance Society headquarters.

Rated for ages 13 and up for violence. --Charles Solomon

Having blazed a path of destruction everywhere he's gone, Vash the Stampede, the notorious gunman has finally met his match is Legato Bluesummers, a man who knows exactly how to get under Vash's skin and cause maximum pain.

Little Arcadia- Milly and Meryl become involved with a farmer trying to save his farm from ruthless land sharks. A bit of an aside from the main plot of the series, it's still a sweet episode about family ties and relationships.

Demon's Eye- This is where the series starts to take on the main plot line of Vash versus the Gung Ho Guns and Legato in particular. After crossing Legato's path again, Vash is horrified by the carnage Legato has left behind (he killed off an entire bandit gang in spectacular style). Finally meeting up with someone who cares as little about life as Vash values it, Vash is faced with another member of the Gung Ho Guns who seems able to teleport.

Fifth Moon- In the episode the series takes an entirely different tone becoming much more serious and Vash has to battle with himself and Legato. Faced with two more members of the Gung Ho Guns Vash is forced by Legato to use the Angel Arms, a weapon of mass destruction that is part of Vash and he seems unable to control, ending in Vash blowing a hole in one of the moons. Wolfwood is also back and shows a much more lethal side as we begin to question just who this priest is. There's a heartbreaking montage near the end where all the different people Vash has helped hear about his unleashing of the Angel Arms and how dangerous he is.

In this volume, the story of Vash and his friends takes a decidedly more serious angle as Vash deals with his own beliefs and fears as much as he deals with Legato. Pitted against an opponent who despises life as much as Vash values it, Vash is forced to face what he truly is and somehow protect those he cares about, even if that means getting them as far away from himself as possible.

The cover of this DVD doesn't make much sense. The art would have been much more appropriate for Vol.1. This is actually one of the darkest DVDs in the series yet.
First off, I'm really irritated at the dissing that the first episode, "Little Arcadia", gets. This episode stars Milly and Meryl and Vash gets mostly left out. This episode is very well done IMO. Interesting story, hilarious villains, and rather touching at the same time. It has a nice theme about family. And I'm a big fan of the insurance girls. Sure Vash is the center of the series, but Meryl and Milly really deserve much of the credit for making Trigun such an awesome series.
The next two episodes are kind of "Villain of the Day" affairs. Thankfully this does not continue through Vol.7. In the second episode Vash confronts Dominique the Cyclops. In the third, Rai-Dei the Blade. And a very important event and revelation occurs in the third episode, so keep your eyes peeled.

I had the opportunity to watch the entire show before it came to the US, and I've been slowly buying the subtitled DVDs as they are released by Pioneer here. This show is great, and it just gets better and better, although I admit that the series ending is rather weak. (Not much is really resolved and the end is left totally open.)
As for this DVD in particular, under Extra Stuff they finally put in a non-credit opening and ending option, for those of you who are into that sort of thing.
The first episode on this DVD is one of my least favorites of the entire show. Vash has a minor role. Milly and Meryl are the main characters and they fight the 2nd half of the Nebraska Family.
The other two episodes however, are some of my favorites. Vash battles a few more of the Gung Ho Guns, Wolfwood has a hidden agenda, Vash reveals his other hidden gun, and all sorts of other cool stuff happens. For those first watching the episodes as they are released in the US, the show may look as though it begins to get very unoriginal and cliche. But just keep watching and be sure to get out the next DVD coming out. There is a sudden surprising twist in the series.

This is a hilarious/ series type of gunslinging anime. If that does not float your boat this is not the anime for you. Straight up if you like a funny main character whom can be so down to earth you wonder if its the same dude. I give this anime two thumbs up.

This one was a lot different that the ones before. It was a little more bloody plus a lot more language. I didn't care for that but over all it was still good. In this we see a new weapon that Vash has, but where did it come from?
