Trigun- Episode 1- The $$60,000,000,000 Man.
I recently bought all 27 episode of Trigun, and i didnt have a bloody clue what it was like or about. From the cover i expected it to be something like gungrave, even though this is obviously made before that. Anyhow, i expected a serious gun filled crime caper, I didnt know how wrong i was. So i watched the first episode, the pilot,The $$60,000,000,000 Man and i was shocked. Not shocked in a bad way, but shock in a good way. What i saw was a 24 minute pilot with lots of potential. There was action and comedy, and characters that had their own story and that you cared about. Narrative hooks that made you want to see the next episode to discover more about its whimpy hero vash the stamped. To me it could be viewed by all ages.
The $$60,000,000,000 Man is a classic pilot to a classic series. It may not appeal to some but it sould be watched.
