“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.
In another world, there exist many countries, each with different cultures, customs, and traditions. From technological marvels to folk legends, each location yields a vast wealth of insight of its people: their hopes and their dreams, their failures and fears. Kino is a traveler whose goal is to visit as many new places as possible, learning about others' ways of life, but also making sure to stay clear of their affairs. Together with the talking motorrad Hermes, Kino sets out to explore the beautiful world and meet its inhabitants, wherever they may be.
"The world is not beautiful, therefore it is."
These are two series following a protagonist who doesn't want to become overly involved in the events they observe, but is sometimes forced to raise their gun nonetheless. Kino's policy of non-intervention is somewhat different to Vash's fear of killing, but both series are concerned with simple people chasing the mayfly of love.
Bouth have to do with charecters going on long jurneys around intresting worlds to find themselvs. Vash and kino bouth have simmiler pshychologies and pasts and bouth series have a lot to do with morel questions.
In the year 200X, World War III began. Special bombs destroyed parts of cities such as Tokyo, leaving decimation in their wake. Decades later, ground zero in Tokyo – an isolated section known as the Black Spot – remains an enigma. Its residents known as Needless possess strange powers such as the ability to control fire or telekinesis, and are constantly hunted down by Simeon, a large pharmaceutical company with sinister motives and Needless of their own to do their bidding. Young Cruz is part of a resistance to fight against Simeon and its Needless figurehead leader, Adam Arclight; but after the resistance is brutally killed by Simeon’s minions, he finds himself saved by a motley crew: Professor Gido, scantily-clad Eve and badass Blade. Together, the gang fends off Simeon’s attacks and tries to discover the truth behind the corporation’s actions. What is Simeon really after, and why do they desperately want to find Fragments?
The main character and villian in each series are very close to one another. The main character in each has to go through a similar set of hurddles. And each series has a lot of fighting and action in them.
Badass main characters, mysterious powers and relationships/pasts, and lots of humor. This is the closest anime I found to Trigun, which is awesome!!!!!!!!
Mireille Bouqet has become a reputable assassin working in France. However, all changes after she meets Kirika, a mysterious young girl who knows nothing about her past but possesses killing skills that dwarf hers. Further intrigue unfolds as both characters explore their shadowy past and come to a head with a clandestine organization that seeks to control destiny itself.
At first, the only thing these shows really share is the fact that the main characters are gunmen. About halfway through the series, Trigun starts to become a darker show and the similarities pop up. Both shows have characters who have commited horrible acts because of the manipulation of others. Both shows become incredibly dark near the end as well.
In both Trigun and Noir the characters are well developed. There are lots of encounters with people hired to hunt down the main cast too. If you liked Trigun, try out Noir.
Amidst a beautiful sunset, Shu is violently whisked away to a grim future devoid of water, and empty of hope; a place where children are forced to become soldiers, and kill countless others in the name of King Hamdo. Shu's companion is a mysterious girl named La La Ru, who may hold the key to survival. Now, he must concentrate on the only things that matter: escaping Hellywood, and finding a way home.
Both anime's are very sad and dark and talk about human morals and what is right or wrong. You will find Trigun more complex than Now and Then, Here and There but still both are masterpieces. If you liked the dark, sad, tragic and action of Trigun you will also like Now and Then, Here and There! Both are very original and feel nostalgic nevertheless.
If you liked the optimism and strength of Vash, the striving for goodness and right in a very negative environment, and the complexity and down-right badness of the main villians in "Trigun", then you will probably like "Now and Then, Here and There" as well.
They are very different animes, with "Now and Then, Here and There" taking these components and bringing them to the absolute forfront. It is a philisophical show, not an action one, and has an extremely dark tone. So if you liked the comedy or the action in Trigun, this might not be for you. But if what you liked about Trigun were the traits I mentioned in the first paragraph, you should definitely look into "Now and Then, Here and There.
No longer held back within the confines of Earth, space exploration is now commonplace throughout the universe. These new colonies, which make up the "New Frontier", are now home to the masses, but the evil mastermind Nemesis and his Outriders spread destruction throughout these worlds. In order to protect the citizens, an organization called Calvary Command was created to bring justice to these outlaws. Saber Rider and the elite agents known as Star Sheriffs now stand between the renegades of the universe and total chaos. Power Stride... AND READY TO RIDE!
Saber Rider & Trigun are both a blending of sci-fi elements such as laser pistols and spaceships with an old west setting. Saber Rider leans more toward the sci-fi while Trigun leans more toward the old west, but both blend the two settings quite smoothly.
Both series are basically space westerns, with gunslinging characters, people in cowboy hats and soundtracks with shades of Morricone. Saber Rider is more sci-fi, with spaceship battles and mecha while Trigun's world has a more down-to-earth feel, but if you dig that space western feel in one of them, it might be an idea to check out the other.
