“Vash, the Stampede” - worth 60 billion dollars to the one who can turn him in. Bounty hunters everywhere are on the lookout for this legendary gunman, not to mention insurance agents Meryl Stryfe and Milly Thompson, who are tasked with preventing any potential damage that this Vash can cause. But with 60 billion on his head, Vash is not an easy man to find.
Evergreen would be a peaceful and prosperous place – if it wasn’t under siege by bandits. Most of the inhabitants have already been killed or driven off, but among the ones remaining is Wendy – a young girl who is intent on finding her kidnapped brother. As the outlaws bring their full arsenal to bear, including one of the dreaded Armor war-machines, the fate of Evergreen looks sealed. However, a slim hope appears in the form of the wanderer Van, who possesses extraordinary martial skills and even an Armor of his own. But Van has motives and goals of his own, which don’t necessarily involve saving besieged towns...
A story of a big soft tough guy... a CLASSIC! You're sure to love Gun X Sword if you liked Trigun. It has a man on a mission who wants to be alone but deep down loves the company... lol. Not to mention, Vash and Van Voth are badasses and make you laugh too.
Trigun and Gun x Sword are alike in that their main characters are aloof towards others. The characters are different in attitude and have a comic relief-like personality, but still get very serious when it comes down to it.
Both of the series are in a less common branch of science fiction: 'sci-fi western'. Both protagonists have a sort of split personality of sorts (switching, with the mood of the anime, from comedic to serious, frequently), and are looking for revenge. Also, in both, the female lead gets pulled into things, following the male lead around while he tries to push her away as he searches out the revenge he desires.
Let's see... a few characters go from one vaguely western vaguely sci-fi town to another and have a showdown of some sort at every stop. Only this time instead of special weapons, there's special mecha and a few more characters joining the baggage train.
If you enjoyed Trigun then Gun X Sword will be one you'll need to watch next. Gun X Sword, like Trigun has a sci-fi western theme. The both have a kickass character with at mysterious past. Gun X Sword's story is great and like Trigun leaves you begging for more.
They both have very similary characters and both have a theme of being based on a planet which was colonized by earth and that the technology level is less than earth, but the main character is in possession of high level technology from earth.
Well it feels like Gun x Sword is somewhat happening in Trigun universe. Both are episodic and are very fun to watch. Both get a serious story later on and end is awsome ways.
Both are in a futuristic western time set,and the main characters are focused on facing one special person with whom they have unfinished business
The future of humanity is in peril, as they are confronted with the threat of an intergalactic clash with a warrior-like alien race, and the only one who can save them is... Captain Tylor?! Join a crew of misfits and rejects including an alcoholic doctor, a gorgeous nurse, an anal-retentive commander and a bunch of really stupid marines as they try to make it out in space and to discover whether their captain is a misunderstood genius or a total moron like he seems to be.
Another series with an immense underlying plot and a comical main character like Trigun would be Irresponsible Captain Tylor. The attitudes of both Vash and Tylor are similar and they seem to be incapable of anything really, but it so turns out they are very good at what they do.
Both of these have a lot of action and adventure--and quirky main characters that you frequently think are insane or hiding something but like anyway.
They also occasionally make you think. But not too much.
Both of these Series focuses on two very diffrent but just as irresponsible lead characters both are quite amusing to watch and you'll find yourself laughin out loud at a few times while watching Irresponsible Captain Tylor accidentaly giving a bomb to an enemy captain and also Smile when Vash the Stampede proves that he's fast enough to beat his enemy by loosing the bouttoms on her clothes, Both anime's are Diffrent though in the way they get serious making them not a guarantead enjoyment if you enjoyed the other anime's however their humor runs just as deep making them both worth a watch too try your taste
These two series have idiots against the universe, but are they really as dumb as they let on? What seems like pure luck or just unnoticeable skill keeps them alive and kicking till the very end!
Trigun and Tylor both feature main characters that are lazy and hillarious, but can be counted on when the time comes.
Both series feature a main character who would rather not get into a conflict though often find themselves having to do battle.
Okajima Rokuro is a small-time salary man who is carrying documents for his company, when the ship he's traveling on is attacked by pirates. Kidnapped, he discovers to his dismay that his employers' main concern is to ensure the documents don't get into the wrong hands, even if it means sending the carrier to the bottom of the sea. Now, with his former life ruined and his kidnappers seeming comparatively friendly, "Rock" decides to join their merry band of mercenaries, and sets out with a new career to the shadier corners of the South China Sea.
In both Trigun and Black Lagoon, the protagonist is thrown into a world of definite corruption. Though common in the action, the series goes far deeper as both protagonists are stuck in this state of perpetual twilight. They are neither good nor evil, their actions are done through their own definition of justice. In general, Black Lagoon and Trigun show the complexities of obtaining a sense of salvation without the need of killing.
Vash and his shambled crew have NOTHING on this rag tag band of social rejects. But if you liked Trigun, you will enjoy Black Lagoon. Though I am not sure that is truly reversible. As where Trigun is a long drawn out somewhat boring story, with repetitive situations, drab dialogue... and LOTS of that, with some really stupid "comedy" (what with the chibi elements)... Black Lagoon is a grown up series, with superb dialogue, excellent characters, funny comedy, and tolerable "chibi" abuse.
Don't get me wrong, Trigun is a decent series... And if liked it you will love Black Lagoon. I just can't in good faith "ensure" the same in regards to that situation flipped.
Two high energy gunslinger shows that will take you for a ride and not want to stop. If you are interested in fast paced fast paced action in a somewhat episodic fashion then both of these shows are highly recommended. While their stories differ at the core, Trigun discussing the value of human life and Black Lagoon showing the daily life of a group of pirates in the world of crime, both shows are produced well, move quickly and have many enjoyable action scenes.
If trigun were to be remade and put into present day, it would come out a lot like Black Lagoon. A lot of the same themes are there, a similar main character is around, and there is a lot of gun fighting in each.
Vash isn't similar to Rock, but Rock is similar to Wolfwood! Characters are similar, as they like to block problems from them, by deciding on what's just, and that they allow them to happen.
Join the king of thieves Jing and his plumed partner Kir as they seek out the greatest treasures in the world - and steal them. From desert bandit fortresses to the innermost sanctums of kings and queens, if there's a magnificent treasure to be had, you can be sure Jing has his eyes (and later his hands) on it.
King of Bandit Jing has a very similar style to Trigun, as it's got strange bad guys and a hero with interesting powers and an interesting weapon. The very abstract settings also make them similar.
At first glance, a bandit and a stampede don't have much in common. However, if you take the time to dig deeper, you will notice a common theme. That is, the questionable protagonist who seems to be a mastermind criminal disguising good deeds under the guise of foolishness that ultimately results in everyone they meet to take notice, and have an epiphany of sorts. Be sure to note the action, comedy, and a smidgen of drama found throughout both.
Simon lives a boring life in the underground village of Jeeha, where his main job day in and day out is to dig tunnels. His close friend Kamina, however, longs to bust out of their oppressive existence and reach the surface world where open skies and adventure await! One day, during his usual digs, Simon discovers a robot with a big face buried amongst the rocks. No sooner has he shown Kamina his mysterious find when two beings from the surface crash land into Jeeha Village - one is a gun-toting woman calling herself Yoko and the other is a terrifying mecha piloted by a Beastman! Seeing their chance to escape village drudgery, Kamina rallies Simon and Yoko to defeat the invader using their new robot, Lagann. However, upon breaking out onto the surface world, Simon, Kamina, and Yoko encounter enemies more powerful than they could have envisioned. Their fight for adventure just turned into a war for the survival of the human race - will their lust for freedom hold out against such terrible odds?
Trigun and Gurren-Lagann develop in the same fashion. While beginning as comedy shows, they become action-packed in the middle and turn into drama in the end. This way, you can watch the development of characters in different situations – you can even see them learning from the mistakes done in the past. On top of that, both series tell a story about people living in the blasted world - and making their life better.
Both Trigun and Tengen Toppa are excellent dystopic sci-fi which combine hilarious comedy, excellent developed characters you come to love, and a serious dramatic plot. If you're looking for inspirational protagonists and a pumped-up style, check out both of them.
Either one is a great sci-fi anime with humorous comedy, interesting characters, and a serious plot make both series a very entertaining watch. While TTGL does tend to focus more on the the whole mecha thing and Trigun has more of a western feel both series do well in their fields with the action being interesting and entertaining. If you liked one then you should check out the other.
One of the things that link these two animes is the dramatic switch the main characters make. While the fight scenes dominate the plot, they rapidly change from goofy shows of power to plot-laden battles. Both are set on a dystopian wasteland for the most part, with advanced technology centering in the plot
If you liked Gurren Lagann, you will love Trigun. Likewise, if you liked Trigun, you'll love Gurren Lagann. The general tone of both series is very similar; i.e predomently fun but serious when it needs to be. Both of them are also extremely funny and have excellent writing, music, animation, action and characters.
If you haven't watched either of these shows, then you are seriously missing out.
