Reasons you might like Trigun...

If you like the gunfights in Grenadier, you might like Trigun. There are quite a few difference between the two series though. There is no fanservice in Trigun, no CG art and the main character is a male. You will also not see the samurai aspect back, which you might have liked in Grenadier either. Trigun, however, does have a somewhat more intruiging story and somewhat more humor. Also. if you liked Trigun and want to see some more advanced bullettime effects as well as some more visual, though more brainless pleasure, don't hestitate to check out Grenadier.

Trigun is obviously the better of these 2 series but you really can see the resemblance. They are both gun toting adventures that are very light hearted and humerous. I think you will definatly like Trigun if you've watched Grenadier. Trigun has alot more to offer for the same style of anime. Plus where as Grenadier stayed pretty consistant in its story Trigun gets rather dramatic halfway through which makes its story very appealing.

Trigun and Grenadier are very alike with great, even superb, gun-shooting action. The main characters have a great style of shooting as well. Grenadier has more fanservice, though.  

JumpMaster13 JumpMaster13 says...

Both series center on gunslingers who are preternaturally skillful with a gun, but who don't want to actually kill anyone. Vash of Trigun is a walking disaster, likeably innocent in many ways, but someone with a dark secret which could very well lead to the end of the world. Rushuna of Grenadier is also very childlike, but she has a serious, intelligent side that crops up when the going gets tough. She, like Vash, is also the lynchpin through which the world will either be saved or descend into darkness.

In both cases, it is the characters, far more than the stories themselves, that breathe life into the individual series. Both the leads and the secondary characters are intriguing and fun to watch in action. Neither series is brilliant, but both are entertaining. If you like one, it's hard to see you not enjoying the other. One caveat: if you're not into fan service, that may mean you won't enjoy Grenadier. Rushuna is well endowed, and the animators take pains to play on that characteristic.

You will love Trigun and Grenadier! Each of the main characters is a good-hearted traveler who encounters friendship and trouble along their path. Both characters rely on their trusty guns in a passive way, never killing the enemy, only injuring or disarming. To me, both anime have almost a western feel to them, regardless of what era they are set in.

Verdeloth26 Verdeloth26 says...

These two series are both about gunslingers who are trying to make amends for what they have done in the past. Rushuna and Vash have very similar personalities and I always said while watching Grenadier, "This is probably what Trigun would be like if Vash was a woman."

patti1988 patti1988 says...

Vash and Yajiro Kojima have both one thing in common. They won't kill anyone. Vash will even give first-aid to his enemies if he thinks that he shot them in a vital area. Yajiro Kojima believes in the ultimate battlestrategy; which is making her enemy give up the fight through tricks and skills.

Strangely though is that these two humanists are both expert marksmans when it comes down to using guns.

Trigun and Grenadier are two of my favorite shows to watch. Both have the same philosophy shoot only to hurt not to kill, to spread love and peace, and to make everyone's lives better for it. Tirgun has an excellent voice cast as the main player Johnny Young Bosh while his friend Sam Regal is the main male lead in Grenadier. The animation for both shows is outstanding as even though Trigun was done in the late 90's. Other than there common themes of love, peace and unity there are a few things that set them apart. One is that Grinder is filled with a bit of fan services and is brought up in the series. Trigun is more for the religious person as well as the action one. It questions the idea of though shall not kill and morals of the characters and their actions in the show. If you like comedy, action, love, and just plain good anime than this is for you.

Oehr Oehr says...

While Trigun goes with a male badass, Grenadier goes with a female booby. But there personalities are similar: even though they are highly skilled shooter, they don't want to kill nor hurt anyone and avoid problems whenever possible, but they are more like trouble magnets... Go and watch this one now!

cbb692 cbb692 says...

Both of the main charas seem to have the same ideals--win without fighting. In other words both animes are about charas fighting, without fighting. Eventually, though, both feel the need to fight when Plan A doesn't work. Then the true fight begins.

Drayd Drayd says...

Both Trigun and Grenadier, are focused around a character who is not only blonde and comical. But also believes in complete pacifism, although they're both pros with pistols.

Both result in comical situations which are a great laugh, although trigun has a lot more of a serious; sometimes depressing side to it, Grenadier focuses more on the funny side of similar ideals.

nosaint317 nosaint317 says...

While Trigun has a longer and deeper story, and Grenadier has a more feel good story with more "fan service", they are very simular. Both main characters are expert marksmen in super human ways and both carry the whole "Fight without killing" attitude and are trying to change the world. Which one you like better is up to you, but I recommend both.

DeathCrunch DeathCrunch says...

The lead protagonists share the same "Don't hurt anyone" mantra, as well as sharing the same paradoxical world renowned sharp-shooting skills.

Humour features heavily in both, though Grenadier is usually more typical echii comedy and Trigun tends to be more slapstick.

While Trigun's story has far more depth to it, Grenadier still has a decent tale to string things together.

If you like Grenadier, you'll like Trigun because the main character, Rushuna Tendou is pretty much a shameless ripoff of Vash the Stampede; simply with boobs.  If all you were in it for were the boobs, then i take back my previous statement.  Grenadier wasn't bad, but Trigun's story and character development are, personally, far superior.

jiropracter jiropracter says...

Trigun and Grenadier are both about marksman who are extremely deadly with a pistol, but are nice to civilians. Both have an upbeat comedy tone to them, so if you liked one you'll like the other.

Burst Angel

In response, an organization called RAPT has been created, whose goal is to maintain their definition of "peace".

Though Grenadier and Burst Angel might not seem very alike, I still got the same feeling from them. Both are action anime with touches of humor and even ecchi, but the action itself is pretty different. The story begins in an episodic manner, but afterwards both plots gain more and more similarities. This is why I'm recommending them for each other.

Galadriel Galadriel says...

Grenadier and Burst Angel! feature female protagonists skilled with using guns. Both are action packed anime shows with similar comedy aspects and even fan-service. The story begins with an episodic plot type in both shows so if you enjoyed one you will like the other one as well.

Both Grenadier and Koihime share nearly every key aspect: ecchi, warriors travelling, fighting peacefully etc. If you liked one of these you'll like the other one aswell.

Htieks Htieks says...

Meet two well-endowed female leads that travel around the lands trying to improve the conditions of their respective worlds, all of this while providing the public with lots of fanservice, comedic acts and sometimes fast-paced action.

The main difference is that Grenadier DOES have a more or less decent plot, while KM is nothing but mindless nudity and laughs (well... sometimes, at least); still, if you're in the mood for a lighthearted journey filled with appealing girls both can be a good option.

freakzilla freakzilla says...

Both Grenadier and Outlaw Star build themselves up in the same way. Being seen as a threat, the main character in each is forced to take on dangerous organizations to seek out the truth behind what's running them. But the feeling is also the same, as the action is filled up with some good comedy and a fun surprise at the end of the story.

Brank Brank says...

First of all, the ecchi part is still there in Tenjho Tenge, just like Grenadier; there are definitely some episodes that are just about that. If you liked that part in Grenadier with the "hotel" and all, you won't be disappointed with some of the scenes from Tenjho Tenge.

Second of all, it has the same type of humour. It's faint but it's there. It's more like a naive humour.

Finally, the violence in Tenjho Tenge is a bit more present. It doesn't have gun action but action is still there. Tenjho Tenge is like a second generation series compared to Grenadier which means a little bit more serious. For me it's just a natural step from Grenadier to that kind of series.

That is why if you liked Grenadier you will like Tenjho Tenge.
