The trigun series is about a man named Vash the Stampede who has a 60 billion double dollar bounty on his head. The thing is no one believes that this man is Vash because he is either incredibly stupid or incredibly good at what he does. This series is a competitor to Cowboy Bebop. It is a different style and does not have the same superb soundtrack as Cowboy Bebop but is extremely well done.
THe story unfolds over 26 episodes and the characters in the series are well developed. Overtime the series gets better and better with the beginning i.e. episode 1 being a little slow to kick off. About 6 episodes in however Vash becomes more serious and a deeper plot unfolds.
I highly recommend this series as it is a good laugh and will entertain those of you who like a lot of action and a little philosophy alongside. Definitely a buy for the Manga collector.
The summary which is published is as follows
"In the distant future... On a desert planet... There is a legendary gunman. His name is... Vash the Stampede.
A gunslinger so dangerous, a $$60,000,000,000 reward has been placed on his head! Vash, also known as the Humanoid Typhoon, has been credited with the destruction of several towns, but miraculously, there is no record of him ever taking a life. However, only two things ever happen to those who catch up to Vash - they either crawl away wounded (mostly from self-inflicted damage), or they stagger away in disbelief that such a dork could possibly be the man they are looking for!
