Book Description

21 Oct 2003 Trigun (Book 1)
It's a western, it's sci-fi, it's punk, and it's popular. It's Trigun and it's become one of the most popular anime in America. But before it was animated, it was a manga. And now Dark Horse has finally brought that manga to America! Continuing our foray into the world of non-Westernized manga publishing, Trigun promises to be entertaining with its huge guns, signature characters, wild shoot-em-up action, and funny writing. Vash is a nice guy, but everyone wants to kill him. An enigma of a man with a coat full of bullet holes, he's widely feared because of the destruction left in his wake. And he's also highly valued for the price on his head. But he's no easy man to kill. Of course, that doesn't stop people from trying. What's his mission? Where's he from? This volume may have the answers to those questions, and more. See what you've been missing in the video, visit Vash in true black and white coolness. Finally, Trigun is here!

4.0 out of 5 stars >^w^< - "Nyaaaow" 23 Mar 2004
Trigun is an interesting manga to look at, whether you are new to the world of Japanese comic books or not. It's story is deep and humerous in places and its characters are all very memorable. Vash the Stampede makes a particulary interesting hero as it is unclear why such a gentle person has a $$60,000,000 price on his head. The Insurance Girls, Millie and Meryl are also add to the comedy value and it's fun trying to spot the black cat (Kuroneko-sama) who appears frequently throughout the manga. The only problem I really had with Trigun is that some of the action sequences - which are stunning in the anime - seem a little confused in the manga and so it makes parts of it a little hard to follow. Since the manga had a very action packed start, this put me off it a little but by the time one of the lesser villains (Brilliant Dynamites Neon) was introduced half way through the manga I was hooked. Trigun volume 1 is well worth a look at.

4.0 out of 5 stars Humanoid Typhoon! 1 Nov 2003
Trigun is the story of Vash the Stampede, a man so dangerous he's officially classified as a Localized Disaster! Vash is the fastest gun on the planet, which is something of a mystery considering he has vowed to never take another's life. He's the best there is, and considering there's a $$60 Billion Double Dollar bounty on his head, he'll have to be.
Constantly in Vash's wake are Meryl and Millie, representatives of the Insurance Society. Sometimes they're useful, but mostly what they are is In The Way.
Book 1 of Trigun features the story of Vash trying to evade bounty hunter after bounty hunter as the word of the 60 Billion Double Dollar reward spreads, and Vash's voyage aboard the sand-steamer "Flourish".
Trigun reads like a futuristic western, (with Vash as the Clint Eastwood/John Wayne type) but in the traditional and undeniable manga style. A definate must-have.

5.0 out of 5 stars trigun manga 16 Nov 2003
By Mel
This manga is by far one of the best I have ever purchased. It has great quality drawings that are both serious and comical.
It is set in a western style world but also has a futuristic and sci-fi theme as well. Of course the comedy theme breaks up the serious situations which works very well.
The characters are original and interesting and Vash comes across as a very mysterious skilled but pacifist gunman.
This really is a must buy for all trigun fans and it is worth every penny.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good Ideas 3 Mar 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Trigun Volume 1 is a interesting look on the character Vash the Stampede in the anime Vash is given a lighter tone were as the graphic novel version is much more darker then the series know even though the series is based of the graphic novel the dialogue is slightly more sophisticated. My reason for giving this graphic novel five stars is because I enjoyed the artwork and the characters darker side which you don't see often enough in the series.

5.0 out of 5 stars The best manga so far 28 May 2004
By A Customer
Plot Summary (of this book)
Vash the stampede, our hero, has been on the run for a long time, ever since the incident of lost july, and this book picks up on his early days on the run, following him through to the sand steamer.
The manga surprisingly translated well from the anime , it covers most, if not more, than the anime series itself. Vash is our hero, as mentioned, in such an ironic sense, his character is a total 180 in our expectations from the cliche hero. which is a pleasant surprise, constantly bringing comedy in large feedings scene after scene.
A spectacular read, comical, yet manages to hold down a plot in an amazing way, worth your money, worth your time. A 5 Star Easily
