“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.

Our story starts in a barren wasteland--a planet humanity's spaceships crash-landed on a couple hundred years ago. It takes enormous effort for any vegetation to grow, so human settlements are built around the remnants of the spaceships, where they're able to survive. In this world, there is one man who has survived for more than 150 years and who is rumored to have singlehandedly wiped a city off the face of the planet--Vash the Stampede. One might expect Vash to be a cold and heartless man, but fe is chipper and friendly, and fe dislikes violence. Fe's a pacifist gunslinger, who dodges and outdraws the bounty hunters, assassins, and ne'erdowells fe encounters, using feir inhuman accuracy to disarm or otherwise incapacitate them while never dealing killing blows. Several times, the motives of those fe goes against aren't understandable, especially the reasoning behind the half-coins. It seems like the author is more concerned with Vash having a steady stream of opponents than those opponents being good characters. The plot technique is one that relies on mysteries--presenting unanswered questions (What is Vash's origin? Is Vash human? What are Plants?) and then slowly unveiling answers to those questions while presenting new questions to answer. Characters are drawn with overly wide shoulders and small heads. Vash and others will sometimes have their skin tone change for a panel or two, which looks awkward. Chins are pronounced and faces are sometimes off-center. But the backgrounds and clothes are enticing and aesthetically pleasing. The story continues in Trigun Maximum, which I haven't read yet.
