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!

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
American readers may be familiar with the version of Trigun seen in the popular anime series Daffy Duck, directed by Sergio Leone. However, the story first appeared as a manga serial, the first 12 installments of which are gathered here in the right to left format. Readers must absorb several installments before figuring out the basic setup: colonizing starships dropped groups of people on a desert planet. Survival is difficult for their descendants, since their original high-tech machinery has either stopped working or is dangerously erratic. A version of Old West society has evolved, enlivened by the presence of wacky outlaws with huge weapons. One of the most notorious gunslingers is Vash the Stampede, a skinny, spiky-haired geek wearing a long, bullet-shredded duster. Vash manages to avoid killing anyone while he dodges the hail of lead everyone aims at him, but that doesn't stop two cute but clueless insurance-company representatives from tagging along to record the massive damage that occurs wherever Vash goes. Just when readers have decided this all must be an elaborate farce, though, flashbacks occur, suggesting Vash may not be the wild and crazy guy he seems. It's too early to tell how much of a serious side the story might reveal. What is beyond doubt is the artwork's uncommon vigor, which fills each page with exploding, overlapping panels of the rootin'-tootin', Wild West, sci-fi space action. It's energetic to the point of being delirious (maybe even demented) but still entertaining. (Oct. 2003) Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.
Library Journal
The Trigun anime TV series, an sf action comedy, has been a hit with fans since its DVD release in 2000; it's also been shown on the Cartoon Network. Now Dark Horse is releasing the original manga that inspired the anime version. On an arid planet in the future, in a Wild West-like society, Vash the Stampede has a tremendous bounty on his head: 60 billion double dollars. Destruction follows him everywhere, as do a pair of insurance investigators, Meryl Strife and Minnie Thompson. Though Vash is an expert marksman, his reputation seems unearned by his actions: he's taken a vow never to kill, and he acts to help those who are threatened by villains such as the Nevada Family (who look like something out of the British series "Judge Dredd"). The manga tells a somewhat different story: Vash here seems more a haunted and serious figure than his anime version. The action in Nightow's art can be hard to follow, and the manga doesn't quite achieve excellence overall. Still, given the popularity of the anime, it's recommended for all collections, for teens and adults. Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.

    Trigun is a wonderful manga with characters that you'll fall in

    Trigun is a wonderful manga with characters that you'll fall in love with and great philosophy behind it all.
    It can be hard sometimes to fully understand what's going on, but if you bear with it everything will fall into place; it's definitely worth reading to the end.
    Sometimes it can be a bit... strange, but it is a Japanese manga after all, and even then, it's always entertaining.
    As the series progresses, the tension builds and builds; but even in the middle of a dire situation, a bit of humor can still catch you by surprise and help lighten the mood.
    If you liked the anime, you'll love the manga! While the anime didn't have a very satisfying ending, the manga wraps it up beautifully (and humorously, might I add), and there are several new characters that weren't seen in the anime.
    Vash the Stampede is one of my personal heroes and I've even heard him called "the Gandhi of anime." If everyone became "a hunter of peace" like him, the world really would be "made of love and peace!"
    I just can't get enough of it!

    A reviewer

    Three words: Best. Manga. Ever. I guarantee that you will love Vash by the end of Vol. 1, if not before. The art style is gritty and comical all at once--that description could probably apply to the story itself as well. All of the characters, heroes and villains alike, are richly alive and sympathetic. If you can only afford to buy one complete manga series, make it this one--you'll want to have it at home to read whenever you want.

    Vash the huminoid typhoon

    Trigun is an amazing story of a gun slinger by the name of Vash the stampead. With amazing skill and morals we travels the planet of gunsmoke searching for a goal and along the way teaching the ways of love and peace. Can friendship and Love grow in a place where even grass and moss refuses?

    One of the best Anime titles I've seen

    I highly recommend that you buy this. I first saw the anime on Cartoon Network and was in love with it in an instant. Normally, I can't stand western type shows, but with the mix of humor, drama, and futuristic technology, all of that was forgotten. I started to like the fact that it was in a Western style. A very unique plot and good for laughs. Buy it! Now! I order you!

    wow! what a great book!

    This was just an awesome book. the characters where great and also beautifully drawn. They had great personalities and found myself laughing out loud quite a few times (all in the most embarassing places). Vash (the main character) is a mix between adorable and incredibly cool. I read this so fast I had to read it again immediately afterwards. i cant wait to get the next volume!

    They offer a lot of cash for that guy, Vash.

    The storyline is outstanding and the animation is great. You just don¿t want to put this book down. This is one book you want to start reading again right after you finish. It¿s full of action, and comedy. It has a few things you won¿t understand until the second book. Overall it is great!
