Anime and Manga for Noobs Part VIII

Manga: (February 1996 - February 1997)
Anime: (April 1, 1998 - September 30, 1998)

Trigun is a Japanese Manga series that was written and illustrated by Yasuhiro Nightow. It was later adapted into an Anime series that aired a year after the original Manga ended. Adult Swim obtained the right to air the dubbed anime in March of 2003. Their rights to air the Anime ended in 2007. 

Trigun is about a man named Vash the Stampede and 2 insurance women who follow him around because of the destruction that seems to follow him. Most of the destruction isn’t actually coming from him but, from the bounty hunters that are after the outrageously large bound on his head ($$60,000,000,000).

- Action packed 
- Its like an Old School Western 
- Good Story line 
- Interesting Antagonists 

- Kind of short (26 episodes)
- Don’t like what happened to my favorite character of the series not going to spoil it but you can watch or read up on it. He was Nicholas D. Wolfwood.

  1. you should, it was good. It took me forever to get around to watching it. My friend hyped it up so much by the time i got around to watching it, it felt slightly overrated to me. It definitely wasn't as overrated as Deathnote was though...
