“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.
With a history of leading a motorcycle gang and getting bad grades in school, why would 22 year old Onizuka ever want to become a teacher? Is it to educate young minds or spread the joy of education? Sure, if it involves being able to look up high school girls' skirts! Watch as this would-be educator uses his own life lessons and unconstituted methods as a means to control a delinquent class of students -- students who certainly aren't as happy to have him as a teacher as he is happy to be teaching...
This may seem like a really farfetched recommendation, but in reality they share a lot of aspects. Both Trigun and Great Teacher Onizuka include a fair amount of comedy while steadfastly introducing more and more of the plot. Also, the mannerisms of the two main characters Vash and Eikichi are similar, and in fact both of them have pasts that, though initially hidden, become focal points in the series as it progresses.
While GTO isn't as action-heavy as Trigun, if you can appreciate the character development and comedy of one, you very well might appreciate the other.
The status quo doesn't mean everything is the way it should be. Both Onizuka and Vash want to change things for the better. Both have seen how bad things can be and hope to make the world better for the future and will never stop trying - which is why you will always root for them.
Though they may seem to have nothing in common besides a crazy blond guy for the main character, GTO and Trigun are actually very similar. Character development, comedy, and action abound in both.
Both feature strong willed oddly charismatic female crazy main characters with hidden pasts who backup their uncharacteristically strong morals in an highly unconventional fashion. action drama off the wall comedy and sexual-tension fill these terrific shows if u like the one your sure to like the other.
Long ago the infamous Gol D. Roger was the strongest and most powerful pirate on the seas. As he was about to be executed he revealed that he hid all of his wealth, including the legendary treasure known as One Piece, on an island at the end of the Grand Line - a treacherous and truly unpredictable sea. Monkey D. Luffy is a spirited, energetic and somewhat dim-witted young man with a very big dream: to find One Piece and become the Pirate King! However Luffy is no ordinary boy, as when he was younger he ate one of the Devil's Fruits and gained its power to become a Rubber Man. Now in this grand age of pirates Luffy sets out to gather a crew and sail to the most dangerous sea in the world so that he can fulfill his dream... and maybe even his appetite!
Both series have an atmosphere of freedom from oppression, being chased by law enforcers.
They travel over the world with their searching for adventures, having a lot of fun.
Same happy go lucky characters with a good mix of humor and action. Luffy and Vash are very similar and both are extremely lovable. Trigun is much shorter but makes up for it in solid plot lines.
BOuth series are great shonins about noble outlaws escaping the law and seing the world. BOuth have a lot of humer to them and a simmiler king of action scens. Trigun is certinley a much deeper anime with a better plot but both series are a lot of fun and are a must wach for shonin fans
They have a similar feel in the sense both fight oppresion in search of fun and adventure.
Both are light hearted and whimsical but do get very serious at times. They both also have spectacular fights
An organization known to the dark side of the world as Chronos claims to desire world peace, employing the top thirteen assassins in the world known as 'Erasers.' They each have a weapon customized to fit their style, all made out of orichalcum ore, the strongest material available on Earth. Number 13, Train Heartnet (codenamed Black Cat) is the most famous and revered of the thirteen Chronos numbers, but in the light of a tragic event he has come to question his path in life. Together with Sven Vollfied, a struggling bounty hunter and a living weapon named Eve, Train takes up a job as a bounty hunter - all the while running from the other Erasers and Creed Diskenth, a crazed man whom wants him to join the Apostles of the Stars, a group made to destroy Chronos.
Both Trigun and Black Cat have a western type gun showdown. There are bounty hunters, deserts, and revolvers. Both main characters can be humorous at one point, then totally badass the next. If you have time on your hands I recommend to watch both you should not be disappointed.
Both series feature a main character who will appear to be somewhat humorous in nature can quickly turn into a revolver wielding gunslinger who very few people can stand up to. Both series also give off a very western type of feel to them but with some very advanced technology that wouldn't be found in the typical western. Comedy and fairly nice gunplay make up the meat of both series and so if you found yourself enjoying one of these series then you may want to give the other a look.
Gunslingers extraordinaire with unparalleled skills! Vash the Stampede and Train Heartnet! Both of these amazing gunslingers are wanted men who are being chased by a large variety of skilled adversaries. Strong groups of trained assassins with incredible powers are on the trail of both men and its up to them to stay one step ahead of the ghosts from their respective pasts. With the help of colorful and entertaining groups of friends and/or allies these heroes go through their lives with extra helpings of suspense and adventure with more than a fair share of good humor as well! If you enjoy anime about likeable heroes who continually overcome seemingly insurmountable odds then you'll enjoy Black Cat and Trigun.
Bolt Crank is a mercenary. Rather than selling his services to whoever can pay, he accepts jobs for his own reasons, and insists on doing things his way. This isn't the only thing that makes Bolt different, for he also has an appetite for eating metal, and can actually reform things he has eaten into the palm of his hand! Follow Bolt's journey and watch while he takes on jobs, makes some money, and saves beautiful women in need.
Characters that are not human wandering in the world, looking for a way to survive; both Bolt and Vash are strange creatures in chaotic worlds filled with monsters, cyborgs, and headhunters.
Both series are about mysterious men with a powerful right arm. Vash the Stampede and Bolt Crank are both great characters that follow their own sense of justice; even if it means people get the wrong idea about them.
The late 90's was a great time for anime, and these two shows from the era perfectly blend action, adventure and add a generous sprinkling of comedy. Probably more suited to a slightly older generation of anime fans, these two shows have some very amusing male protagonists with some very special fighting styles. If you like your anime to be a lot of fun, you should definitely try out both of these shows.
In a futuristic world almost barren of life, mankind is confined to mechanized domed cities where A.I.’s control all aspects of life. In this world, humans are no longer born, they are manufactured in a production line; and alongside them live androids known as autoreivs. Within one of these domed sanctuaries named Romdeau lives Re-l Mayer, one of a few citizens who aren’t entirely prevented from thinking. Her grandfather's prominent position and the affection of the scientist Daedalus have left her more free will than is normally allowed, but Re-l has started to question the sanctity of the city and the citizens' perfect way of life. With mysterious beings known as proxies causing havoc and a man named Vincent causing great influence on her life, Re-l must travel outside of the city to find the answers she seeks and discover the mystery behind "the awakening".
If you like anime where the main character journeys through wastelands (with his happy companions ;)) in search for his past, you should try watching these. Even though Trigun and EP have different scenery, they are very alike (mostly the plot and a few minor themes). Also the main characters of both series are much more then they seem at first glance and strangely enough, sometimes Vincent looks quite a bit like Vash. Both of those series have a lot of action (in Trigun it's gunfights, while in EP it's something hard to describe ;)).
The history is different in these two anime, but both Trigun and Ergo Proxy show the desperation to keep alive on an earth that is declining with the passing of time. Also, the feelings you get from both of these series are similar.
Trigun and Ergo Proxy are two anime that are completly differnt. trigun is a brightly colored light-hearted story about a poor lost soul that is always doing good. Ergo proxy is a noir dark tragedy that focus on distopian post-apocoliptic life. Though these two show look very different for some reason i couldn't help but feel that they were similar, after reviewing both i noticed many more similarities. Both shows feature a superhuman protagonist who's is unwittingly being hunted as well as ultilized to sustain the human population. Trigun and EP share a close philosophical moral and seriously make you think. Im not saying that because you liked one show you will like the other but these anime are far to awesome to pass up.
