Well, I've only seen a little
biit of this series, but I've read tons of episode summaries (bad
me ^^) and got a general idea what the storyline's about. Basically,
if you've seen Rurouni Kenshin, then you'll like this one.
They have very similar storylines. Anyhoo, Trigun's about a legendary
outlaw named Vash the Stampede who's worth $$60,000,000,000 dead or
alive. He is generally known as the Humanoid Typhoon, capable of destroying
cities in an instant, including one of the most populous by the name
of July. However, despite the rumors, Vash is actually a really big...dork.
He keeps his real agenda hidden underneath a friendly visage and acts
really goofy (i.e. the weird peace sign and "LOVE AND PEACE!!").
He meets along the way two women from the Bernadelli Insurance Company
(Meryl Strife and Milly Thompson) who are to keep 24 hour watch and
Nicholas D. Wolfwood, a priest from an orphanage a few miles off from
the city of December.
The story's a mixture of both
comedy and drama; light and dark. Like I said, I haven't been able
to watch the entire series yet so I can't really give a thorough review
about it. So far, I like it. Vash is just so....loveable and his "partner
in crime" (he's not really, I like to think of him as one, though
^^) Nicholas is just as equally goofy as Vash. There's also a cat
(Kuro-neko) who practically appears in EVERY episode (every one I
saw ^^), with the exception of the 1st one, whom my friends and I
have named the "Cat on Crack". He provides for more humor
and mysteriously follows everybody around, and they just ignore him!
The thing that bugs me is that Trigun and Rurouni Kenshin are so simliar,
except Trigun has guns and Ruroken has swords.
Just one warning, though. Once
you reach around episode 11 (I think it's episode 11...), never watch
it alone at midnight. Especially when you don't turn on the lights
for the TV....
This will subject to change.
