    So I just watched Trigun for the 1st time, and finished in 3 days.
    Two words to describe it: Totally Kickass!
    I loved the entire series, but I didn't really get the "plant" thing.
    Your thoughts on the series?

    Never heard of it, but that's just me. I might go give it a watch, though. Thanks for the tip!

    Watched the first episode and found the humor to be really lame. Never bothered picking up another episode after that. I personally prefer Gungrave or Devil May Cry for my "shoot shit up" anime.

    Then again, you can't blame people for finding things from the past that they find interesting. I love playing SNES games nowadays, does that bother you?

    They had Trigun on Adult swim (or whatever the daytime variant was) years back on cartoon network, surprised more people haven't heard of it.

    Like many anime series, it's not totally faithful to the actual plot (it diverges like halfway through), pick up and read the manga if you want know more about plants and vash's life and such, it continues for a lot longer.

    Really? I can't seem to find Trigun on my usual manga sites, do you know of any sites where I can read them online?

    Yes, just Google around a bit, I just found it. We can't link you as it's a licensed manga and it's against the rules. I have the whole series in my Anime folder and it's been there for a few months, I should probably start watching it soon.

    Trigun is great, I own the box set but haven't watched every single episode. The first episodes were more appealing than the very last to me.

    Also I have heard over the years that Gun Grave is the continuation of Trigun, so you might want to check it out.

    Ok Gungrave is not a continuation its its own whole series based on a different character, its not a bad show either, but it is not a continuation.

    No it's not, you have a manga 'sequel' like thingy Trigun maximum if I'm correct (then again that follows the manga version of Trigun so I'm not sure 'bout the differences with the anime). While Gungrave is good as well, the stories are completely different (The only thing they have in common are guns). The story of Gungrave is in it's essence one of revenge and friendship, while that of trigun is one of bonds and the value of a life.

    There's not much catching up to do.

    Most anime today sucks major ass.

    not really, there are a lot of good animes, probably in US there are less but in asia there are so many anime that you don't have time to watch 10% .
    i got 2tb full of anime unwatched , really time consuming

    I didn't like Trigun.

    srsly, the ending was total bullshit. vash didn't even kill that other blonde loser whose name escapes me.

    they also killed off wolfwood, which made me very angry.

    the worst was when they showed vash's mutilated body. so much for slash fiction.

    Just because there's a lot of it, does NOT mean any of it is good. Name ONE good series from 2009.

    Vash didn't want to kill anyone, he killed Lagato because the girls wouldve died otherwise. Knives was his name. I didnt like Wolfwood dying either...That was to show the price he paid for being so lenient with is enemies.

    Could be, but i know gungrave is about drug addicts and a big bad corporation who's selling it and fighting dead people, i only kinda remember what trigun is about, but both arent bad shows.
