Trigun

YOU MIGHT LIKE

Cowboy Bebop

Both Trigun and Bebop have very well developed storylines in terms of how the charachters grow. Both anime series are completely worth it simply for the last 2 climactic episodes, when you start really understanding what drives both Vash and Spike.

Rurouni Kenshin

Vash and Kenshin are similar in that they're both pacifists who will not hesitate to turn into unstoppable warriors to prevent people from getting hurt. If you liked Trigun, you'd like Kenshin.
