Vash the Stampede, a gunman with a sixty billion double double
bounty on his head, travels through the wastelands of a new
planet with every bounty hunter close at hand trying to kill
him. As he is considered a human disaster area, because of
the damage cause to each of the towns he visits, Milly and
Meryl, two insurance agents, are assigned to follow him. Where
Vash goes mayhem follows...
this new disc Trigun continues its science fiction
re-imagining of the lone gunman Wild West genre.
Saverem (episode 17) is a leap back in time to when Vash
and the other humans were still on route to their new world.
We discover that Vash has a brother called Knives (what was
their mother thinking?) Vash and his brother aren't totally
human, a fact highlighted by their abnormal growth pattern.
Everything you ever wanted to know about the back-story is
here, including Rem giving Vash his unique hairstyle. Sibling
rivalry between Vash and Knives mirrors the chaos which erupts
on the ships, leading to their eventual forced landing. The
quality of the animation seems to have slipped a tad in this
episode, both characters and backgrounds look less detailed,
however, this detracts little from the exciting plot. The
story, unlike others in the series, is fairly grim and lacks
the comic moments which are a trademark of this show.
Goodbye for Now, it has been two years since Vash disappeared
from sight and another town is under siege from bandits. To
make matters worse, word is the bandits are being lead by
Vash the Stampede. When they are confronted by a blond haired
boy known only as Erics (not sure why it's plural) it quickly
becomes clear that Vash, plagued by visions of the destruction
he has wrought, has been hiding out under a pseudonym. Wolfwood
comes to find Vash. He needs help to discover what happened
to a whole missing town, which left a single clue - the name
Knives carved on a wall.
With Vash's reappearance it's not long before Milly and Meryl
hear of it. In
Hang Fire, the girls are reassigned to stop Vash from
causing any more damage. With this story we see all the elements
of the show coming back together. The girls are back, as is
the eclectic mix of action and comedy, as they try to catch
up with Vash. He and Wolfwood get into a dispute between two
the series is an excellent one, it's difficult to award high
marks for the DVD's. You only ever seem to get three episodes
rather than the usual four, the extras are nothing to get
excited about, in this case a couple of art galleries and
a trailer. It's not as if the disc was packed with audio options
either just English and Japanese stereo with subs. So where
did all the spare space on the disc go? Granted the picture
is pin sharp, but that is often the way with other titles
