Episode Summary

EDIT
After all the crazy adventures and tragic conflicts, Vash finally meets up with his brother Knives, but it is not a pretty sight as he recalls the history between them in the past 130 years. As advanced forms of the Plants, Knives had been intent on destroying the human race, while Vash had heeded Rem's philosophy of saving everyone. Knives proves to be Vash's most difficult opponent of all as he is equipped with the same weapons as Vash. The survival of the planet lies on the fate of the battle.moreless

    I enjoyed the show a lot. But the ending kinda dropped it a bit for me. I just felt so let down. I wanted to see what happens after Knives heals. I just feel this ending left way more questions than answers and I just don't think endings should be like that. Overall a good series but then ending doesn't do the show justice.
  • Vash comes to grip with his past in one final confrontation with his psychotic brother, Knives.

    One would expect a series that made us laugh and kept us on the edge of our seat would be able to conclude itself in the same manner. However, the conclusion to the series is very mediocre. The entire series lead up to the climatic confrontation between Vash and Knives, but the battle itself is brief. Despite that fact, it leaves us with an unsatisfying cliffhanger ending. Some of the dialog between Vash and Knives is very well written, and gives us a deeper look at each of the characters, but overall, this episode is nothing to write home about. A small blemish on a shining series.moreless
  • The conclusion of the series does not fail to please.

    Trigun is a fantastic anime, despite the severe differences from its manga version, and its conclusion is absolutely no exception to this basis. It's hard to say too much about it without ruining it, but the ending has meaningful dialogue between the two brothers, and at the end it shows that Vash has and always will stick to his beliefs. I've heard a few complaints about the conclusion not giving enough closure, and on this point I would strongly suggest that you get the DVD set. That final scene that wasn't shown on television, despite its short time and almost total silence of the characters, adds so very much to the ending. Trigun's originality and gripping characters have had me from the first episode, and went out with a bang. In my humble opinion, it fully deserves this ten out of ten.moreless
  • wasn’t what I expected

    8.0




    “Under the sky so blue” is the final episode of Trigun. I have to say it wasn’t what I expected but it still is a good episode. What I expected was a nail biting fight to the death, with Vash trying to figure out how to defeat Knives. Instead, we get this: the first part of the episode is flashback of how Vash and Knives wondered around the planet, and we see how they are both different from each other. The second part see’s an ok gun fight between the both of them. Nothing that spectacular. Ok they use the angel guns, but that wasn’t that good. So Vash saves the day and that’s it really. A ok way to finish a brilliant show.

  • TRIVIA (4)

    • The angel arm designs are more elaborate in this episode, with angel wings at the back of them.

    • Kuroneko Sighting
      After the scene where the well shoots out water, you can see him standing next to Meryl for just a split second before he runs offscreen.
      Kuroneko also appears on a paper label during the closing credits.

    • Rem Saverem's name is spelled as "Lam Saybalem" in the computer that Vash used to search for her relatives.

    • During the battle, Vash's right sleeve was torn off and his arm was fully exposed. But later when he takes off his red coat we can see that the suit underneath has a complete right sleeve.

  • QUOTES (8)

    • Knives: The humans treat you well? Did you have fun, dear brother?
      Vash: Yeah, I did! Best thing that ever happened to me.
      (Vash pulls out his gun and aims at Knives.)

    • Knives: That is the true nature of the beasts called humans. They're selfish, arrogant, insolent, and imperfect organisms. They make me sick!

    • Vash: They're all alive! Alive!! I promised Rem...that we would make this land into...
      Knives: That's right! You and I are going to make this land into...our private...Eden.

    • (after Vash picks up his gun and aims at Knives)
      Vash: I won't let you kill any more!
      Knives: Hey, I think you got the wrong idea somewhere. You're supposed to aim that at them, not me.

    • Knives:(to Vash) Are you still worried about that nonsense after 15 years? The self-contradicting nonsense of a stupid woman.

    • (In a flashback to after their ship landed and Vash woke up)
      Vash:(to Knives) This is all your fault! You killed Rem...the crew...you killed them all!
      Knives: Yes, and it's very colorful. It's superb...aside from the fraction who will be saved because of Rem's meddling.

    • Vash: I... I will... I will survive!

    • Vash: Rem, I will continue to believe in you. But from now on, I'll look to my own words for guidance.
