  • great episode to watch if you are new to the series

    “Vash the Stampede” pick up from last episodes cliff hanger, as Vash decides to let his opponent live. And from then on it’s all a little de ja vu as Millie and Meryl try and write out a report. Queue an episode of flashbacks, looking back on Triguns’s finest moments. Each flashback shows a different side to Vash, as the two girls try a figure him out. The last five minutes of the episode reveals another of Vashes dark secrets as we see him with out his top on. Here we see many battle scars which make our hero look a bit like the “Terminator”. Overall this is a great episode to watch if you are new to the series, or if you just want to relive some nice moments from the series.moreless
  • This is only the second episode of the show I've watched, and I'm glad it was this episode that I saw!!

    I guess I liked this episode because it told so much about the storyline that I missed. Since I've only seen the show one other time before, this explained everything for me in one fellow swoop. I wasn't disappointed. This episode made me want to come back and watch more. It described the sitation very well, showed character personality, and left multiple examples. In other words, it shouted at me, "Watch more of this show! It's very cool!" And I think I will.

    I like how it gradually explained more and more about Vash, not rushing into it like a lot of other shows would. That really gave me a better understanding of him.moreless

  • QUOTES (3)

    • Monev: Hey, it's dangerous to be too trusting. What if I decided to get up and shoot you in the back?
      Vash: I'm not that trusting. I kept my finger on the trigger the whole time.

    • Meryl: So, those scars are the price you pay for dealing with your opponents without killing them.
      Vash: Its not something I want girls to see I think many of them would run away

    • Vash: Young lady! Travelling alone in the desert can be very perilous! If you act now, you can hire your own bodyguard, free of charge, what do you say?
