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

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.

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!!!!!!

I really, really adore Trigun. The plot is great, the characters are really easy to care about, and the music is amazing, as is the voice acting.
I must say, to whoever said they probably aren't going to bother with watching the original: You NEED to. The voicing is even better, and it would be worth the price of the whole set just to hear Legato's voice in the original. (Seki Toshikio!)
The series doesn't start out wonderfully, but completely makes up for it with a fascinating plot. I have only three problems with it. One, the clip episode. Two, the ending. Sure, you know Vash takes Knives back to the town and stuff, but... What after Knives gets better? What happens? Three, Legato. No, I love him. To death. But, I would have liked for them to tell us more about him. How he met Knives. Does/did have a little sister? I believe it was hinted (not in the series, but by the creator) that he did. Why is he the way he is? And, are his psychic-ish powers just because of the arm, or did he have them before? Things I must know. ^^'
I own both of the soundtracks, as well, and they're wonderful. I love the drama tracks on the Second Donuts, especially the one about Legato and Kuroneko-sama.
When I got this boxed set for Christmas last year, I watched the entire thing on Christmas day.
Buy this. Buy this. Buy this. Buy this. o_o' It's very worth it.

Trigun is, without a doubt, one of the best animes out there. It has a perfect mix of action, adventure and real emotion that is usually hard to find. It is well executed with supurb writing, diverse and memorable characters, and a terrific story. This box set, which contains 8 dvd's, is well worth the money, especially to any true otaku fan.
The hero of this story is Vash "The Stampede." He is a handsome blond haired man who wears a long blood-red jacket and has a wicked silver gun, and has a multi-layered personality. He also has an incredible 60,000,000,000 double dollar bounty on his head. In the first couple of dvd's he seems like nothing more than a goofy, lovable guy who loves donuts and attracts trouble like a magnet. No matter where he travels, as soon as people hear he is "Vash the Stampede" they immediately go after him to take his life. Sometimes it is for the bounty money, other times it is for more personal reasons. However, as the story progresses he reveals that he is heroic, brave, intelligent, and is someone who refuses to kill anyone no matter what the cost to himself. It is this strong belief of his that causes him tremendous pain and suffering throughout the series.
I haven't watched the Japanese dubbed version yet, and to be honest, I probably will not bother to. The English voice acting is wonderful. All of the voice actors delivered performances full of feeling and energy. The standout is Jonny Yong Bosh who did the voice of Vash. Mr. Bosh's voicework as Vash is exceptional. He makes the viewer believe that the hero is, even with all of his incredible talents, just a person like any other who hates violence and desperatly seeks "Love and Peace" for himself and others.
