Short Synopsis: Over 100 years ago, people came to live on this dustbowl of a planet. "Plant Technology,"
the ancient techonology from years ago, produced a man of unimaginable powers. This man, known simple as "The Humanoid Typhoon,"
roams the planet causing destruction wherever he goes. But no matter how much damage is done, there are never any casulities.
This man, who's real name is Vash, is worth the bounty of $$10,000,000,000. Bounty hunters from all across the planet come
to find this man for the fortune that's been put on his head; however, all Vash wants to is be left alone... with a woman.
Story: Trigun has a very nice story to it. It can be fun, get serious, and switch back-and-fourth. While
Trigun isn't overly deep, it does have some real depth to it. Trigun will never get too complicated, deep, or stupid. It always
seems to keep it fresh. Kudos.
Characters: Trigun's characters are awesome. You have Vash, the lovable,
funny, and cool main character. He can do that silly thing or be very serious and butt-kicking. The two girls that follow
him, Millie and Meryl, are also interesting. While they aren't as interesting as Vash, it's hard to try to compete with the
Humanoid Typhoon in terms of "coolness," anyways. Wolfwood is also very cool. Overall, they're very cool.
The art here is pretty impressive. It's not the newest anime (it's from 1998), so its animation isn't awe-inspiring, but it
is still very good, considering. It looks like Trigun had a pretty high budget. Character design is also impressive, Vash
Music: I really like the music in Trigun. It can have that folksy-western feel to it
one minute, and it can have heavy guitar riffs the next. The opening theme is a lyric-less piece that resembles metal from
the 80s (I like it anyway). The ending theme is not as catchy, but it fits well and gets the job done.
The cursed dub. They usually get bad raps, but Trigun's dub is decent, downright delightful one might say. Vash's voice is
a delight, and are all of the others', too. Not amazing, but still very good.
Overall: Trigun is
a great piece of anime. It can be seen on Adult Swim from time to time! If you haven't already seen this anime on Adult Swim,
be sure it check it out! B-e-a-utiful!
Buy it! Try to catch an episode or two from Adult Swim first, though.
+ It's a great combination of action, comedy, and drama.
+ The characters are very
interesting, especially Vash.
- There isn't much wrong with it, but there are quite
a few 'filler' episodes.
* It's great if you don't mind watching a basterdized mixture
of the wild west and sci-fi.
