The animation has some new tricks up its sleeves, with 3D models being slickly inserted into the traditional 2D look, but despite the new tech it clearly tries hard to remain faithful to the old Trigun look. Eagle eyed fans may spot a few new variations, on Vash's coat and gun designs especially, but these 'new' designs are actually more faithful to the older Manga drawings. In the director's commentary you'll find out these changes were actually championed by the original artist himself, the newer computerised animation clearly allowing the extra details that wasn't possible before.
The story itself is typical Trigun fare, bad guy comes up with ludicrous plot, and Vash's antics never let up in his quest for peace. There are some genuinely interesting places the story plot takes you, but by all accounts the story is basically a good excuse for some awesome set pieces and good old action. With probably some of the wisest words I've ever heard, the Director himself expressed he doesn't care about winning awards, or stunning critics, his one and only goal was to make something Trigun fans will adore. I tip my hat to that ideal, as I found the movie extremely enjoyable from start to finish.
The film shouldn't be too off-putting to watch for newcomers to the series. It doesn't exactly tie in with any major plot points from the main series, and a new character takes the spotlight alongside Vash so newcomers aren't really missing too many details.Read more ›
