Trigun is about a guy with a giant bounty on his head for destroying a whole city, his name is Vash the Stampede. Now you’d think that Vash the Stampede would be some guy that’s mean, and awesome, if he managed to destroy a city, but he’s not, he’s actually quite funny, in fact to dodge bullets he dances.
Now don’t take the funny act wrong, he’s still an amazing ace gunmen, but he chooses not to kill people if he can help it, going on about love and peace. Now, of course, people are going to hunt Vash down, due to his massive bounty, including the insurance company.
Two insurance agents are sent to hunt Vash down, and make sure he doesn’t destroy any more cities. I don’t know about you, but I would hate to have that job. So the show goes through the awesome, and sometimes ridiculous, adventures of Vash the Stampede and the two insurance agents, as well as a couple of other characters introduced along the way.
You may be wondering how such a nice guy could have possibly destroyed the city, why he’s hunted so much, and why he’s so rediculously strong. Well these answers are answered, as well as others that you may ask along the way.
