A Japanese businessman, captured by modern-day pirates, is written off and left for dead by his company. Tired of the corporate life, he opts to stick with the mercenaries that kidnapped him, becoming part of their gang.
Trigun takes place in the distant future on a deserted planet. Vash the Stampede is a gunfighter with a legend so ruthless that he has a $$60,000,000,000 bounty on his head. Entire towns evacuate at the rumor of his arrival. However, the real Vash the Stampede is not the same man that rumor portrays him to be. The enigmatic and conflicted lead character in Trigun is actually more heroic in nature; as well as a complete and utter idiot at times. Written by

I decided to do this as my humble way of exhibiting grief for the loss of a good friend, how'd I do?

In the opening credits for the first 17 episodes, a poster reading "WANTED - Vash the Stampede - 60,000,000,000$$" is briefly shown three times. For episodes #18-26, however, this poster is replaced by one which reads "-EMERGENCY- EVACUATION ORDER! HUMANOID TYPHOON IS COMING". See more »
I'm not really big into these here Japanese cartoons, but this is one of the two that I really like.
Trigun really throws off people that watch it. When it starts out, it's pretty funny as Vash takes on a series of fairly harmless and minor thugs and villains. If that's all you're looking for in the series, I wouldn't recommend watching the second half of the series.
The second half really gets dark in its viewpoints. It really shows that there's a human side as Vash fights with both his enemies and himself. So if you're looking for some comedy and darker views on life, I'd really recommend Trigun.
