Show Summary

Meet Vash The Stampede, a man worth $$60,000,000,000! Responsible for destroying many cities he's traveled through, you'd think this guy is quite a heartless fiend. Yet, in one of the cities, he destroyed it without killing a single person. Meryl Strife and Milly Thompson are two insurance agents assigned to look after Vash and deal with his wake of destruction, but the Vash they discover is quite the opposite; he is really silly and foolish, but gentle and caring. He goes through great lengths to save the lives of the innocent without taking the lives of the guilty. An emotionally driven yet funny, philosophical yet silly, action packed yet dramatic series by Yasuhiro Nightow, Trigun enjoyed a long manga run from 1998 - 2007, but has been made into a 26-episode anime in 1998 by Madhouse. It is directed by Satoshi Nishimura (Fighting Spirit) and its screenplay was done by Yosuke Kuroda (Tenchi Muyo series). The English dub was done by Pioneer, and features one of Johnny Yong Bosch's (Bleach, Power Rangers) premier voice acting roles. In 2003, Trigun was added to Cartoon Network's Adult Swim schedule, where it enjoyed much success up through 2005.

  • Sci-Fi meets Western

    Trigun is an Anime series based on the manga created by Yasuhiro Nightow. It tells the tale of Vash The Stampede, a mysterious gunslinger whose reputation betrays him, for he carries with him a dark secret involving his past & that of his long-time nemesis, Knives Millions.

    He is always followed by 2 cute "insurance agents" Meryl & Milly, as well as a gunslinger in the guise of a clergyman, Nicholas D. Wolfwood.

    I saw this Anime on video & it was entertaining to say the least, since Vash would much rather be a lover than a fighter, unless he runs into Knives, that is.

    Only in Anime can a melding of 2 genres can be pulled off without trailing into camp.moreless
  • This anime rawks!!!

    Trigun, after Cowboy Bebop, is my favourite anime. Like with Cowboy Bebop we have a likeable cast of characters, Vash and Wolfwood especially. Although unlike Cowboy Bebop, which is often serious but has humour, a majority of Trigun is funny but is serious when necessary. However, if I were you I'd watch the Japanese version with subtitles. Personally I don't like Vash's English voice. I just don't think it suits him. So overall Trigun is an incredibly fun anime and is the second greatest I've ever seen. If you are a fan of either Cowboy Bebop or Outlaw Star then I think that you will definately find something to enjoy about Trigun.moreless
  • One of the very best animes you will ever see and a personal favourite of mine.

    The story follows Vash the Stampede a man who has caused over $60,000,000,000 worth of damages. As such two insurance agents Meryl Strife and Milly Thompson are sent to catch him and bring him to justice. They understandably expect to find a murderous fiend but when they finally catch up to Vash what they find is a clumsy and foolish man. however, when they encounter trouble it turns out Vash is a man with exceptional skill who tries to save everyone and never take a human life regardless of the cost to himself.

    This is an excellent anime with lots of cmedy mixed effortlessly with awesome fights and touching drama. The plot takes lots of twists and turns but without being confusing or complicated. All in all it is one of the very best shows you will ever see.moreless
  • Vash the stampede famous gunfighter, who dosent really want to kill anyone and is willing to sacrifice himself.

    Its a great anime, when i saw the first episode i was not blown away but as i watched on the storyline got better and better, the artwork was good but not the best still its well worth anyones time. Vash the Stampede is a gunfighter who values human life in a time when others do not, the story is in future and in another planet where human race has had to go back western time. In a world where strongest survives he is trying to help everybody no matter whats the cost to hes own life. As the show goes on the real story what happend to humans comes out and all is answered. In anime community this show is highly recommended and is worth watching i did and im not sorry because it was my gateway to anime world that changed my life a lot.moreless
  • trigun in more ways then one has become one of the most popular animes since dbz,pokemon,and sailor moon.It's popularity is still growing even though the show has ended.

    trigun is just awsome!.Despite the fact that the first episode i saw was'nt the first episode in the series still from just that randomly watched episode i could just see that this was just the beging of what looks like a great anime.The main character of the show is named vash but everyone in the anime constanly refers to him as "vash the stampede" and of course thiers a reason for that.(but you'll have to find that out for your self).The story is really about two brother that are not exactly human beings what thier called are plants (no not plant as in you some thing you water when ever you remember to)but plant as in an artificial human that is used as a form of energy,with that in mind it's no surprise that thier both immortal.Oh almost forgot vash is a plant and his brother is named knives of course we should know by now that knives is evil cause come on! he's the main characters brother and just look at his name knives.Aside from the great story which i don't want to reveal just in case you have never seen or heard of the show before.This particular anime has alot of action in it considering that it's a cyber punk anime and thier is alot of gunkatta(gun violence for thoses of you that can't speake japnese like me).Aside from the main character vash there are also a few other minor but preety cool characters as well like john wolfwert whos a preist with a cross like heavy machine gun,and then thiers milly and maril who are insurance agents that always follow vash to cover all the damage that he cause (note: he's also known as the human typhoon).Well that about wraps it up so if you get a chance watch trigun or buy the dvd set either way you won't be dissapointedmoreless
