Product Description

Amazon.ca

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

5.0 out of 5 stars So funny (and deep too)! July 16 2004
Format:DVD
Some other reviewers have noted that Vash is an implausible(...); that he is un-heroic and the show lacks balance in the transition from funny to serious. This, of course, stems from a misunderstanding of what a hero is and how complex characters are developed.
The theme of the reluctant hero is rather common--it exists from the Christ (who wished not to die) to the "manslayer" (another hero that refuses to kill). Vash has tremendous power (as does Knives) but he chooses to use it for good. The first ten episodes of the show emphasis his childish nature and establishes his pacifist beliefs, his sense of justice and how he must reconcile the two.
Despite his constant heroics, people both hate and fear him, mistaking him for the villain and trying to cash in on the $60 billion on his head. And perhaps the key part of his character is missed by these reviewers; Vash suffers to save others (the "by his stripes we are healed" of Isaiah is literal-Vash is covered with scars from times he refused to kill). His is a "hunter of peace, chasing the elusive mayfly of love", trying to find his small piece of happiness and peace in a barren world.
So, in a sense, the other reviewers are right that Vash is weak in the sense that the Knight of the woeful countenance was crazy. The villains on the show certainly view him as such and one wonders which will crack first: Vash or them. The show heavily emphases Christian themes (even featuring a gun toting priest and two episodes: Diablo and Sin) especially redemption
And besides, this show is filled with humor, wild west/techno guitar music and awesome duels; the only trouble is the subtitling that is filled with errors. Trigun is one of the greatest Animes and Vash the humanoid typhoon is an ultra cool tragic hero.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very Different Show July 14 2004
By Darran
Format:DVD
Having heard alot about this show I finally decided to buy it and was certainly not dissapointed.
Trigun is a very unusual show. One of the criticisms I have heard is about Vash being a pacifist. However there was something refreshing about it. It brought a totally different slant to fight scenes and made deaths seem all the more horrific when they occur.
This is a very philosophical show and really does force you to think about the right to take a life in any circumstance.
The Score is excellent, ranging from moving "film noir" style music" to sterotypical Cowboy music to Heavy Metal.
Plus it has big guns and cursing!!!!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Why isn't there more of this? Jan. 22 2014
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Its the perfect mix of comedy and high skill kung-fu cowboy action! Vash The Stampede, what a name! Is he human? I dunno, watch this to find out.
Vash is by far the best non-violent fighter I've ever seen. The laughs keep coming thanks to his seeming incompetence but he keeps on saving the day. He is the perfect comedy hero. I'm not going to write much here... just buy it now while you can. You will want to watch this again and again!
This series is in my top 5 for certain and trust me, my top 5 are separated by VERY small margins.
Why are you still reading this? Buy it already!

Well, I am not a man of many words. I received it fast and safely. The box was all clear and the DVDs were more than readable. Two thumbs up.

4.0 out of 5 stars Strange encoding Sept. 24 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I love Trigun. I have for a long time. People need to be aware that the encoding on this set is a bit weird, though. Instead of each episode being individual chapters, all seven episodes on the first disc are one long chapter, and the menu just drops you in at the appropriate timecode.

5.0 out of 5 stars an old favourite July 8 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
worked perfectly, and I like that the size of the set is smaller, it makes it easier to fit into my anime library. The series is just as awesome and hilarious as I remember it from so long ago

4.0 out of 5 stars Goofy sci-fi goodness Feb. 14 2012
By Redwynd
Format:DVD
Huzzah for goofy sci-fi anime. Well worth the price of admission, to watch Vash & Co romp about a futuristic Wild West, complete with spectacular gunfights and tropes galore. Also, watch for the cat!

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Anime Nov. 25 2011
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This was a very refreshing anime to watch. It is quite different from the usual craze-fest/gore fest of some other anime shows.

Basically this anime has a good injection of humor - and is anime-lite (which is a good thing, as it stands out from the rest of the anime crowd).

All in all i would give this 4/5 stars.
