Vash the Stampede, a gunman with a sixty billion double double
bounty on his head travels through the wastelands of a new
planet with every bounty hunter trying their best to kill
him. As he is considered a human disaster area because of
the damage cause to each of the towns he visits, Milly and
Meryl, two insurance agents are assigned to follow him. Now
Vash has a mission to stop his brother, Knives, from his intent
to kill everyone on the planet...
have turned a little darker now that Vash has to contend with
his brothers homicidal desires. The show continues its stylish
mix of sci-fi and western, throwing in a smorgasbord of different
animation styles into its eclectic mix of drama and comedy.
Given its quality it's hard to come to terms that the show
is around ten years old, gotta say its aged well.
twenty, Flying Ship, and we find that Vash has given
the girls the slip in order to journey to a mysterious floating
city, which turns out to be the only surviving seed ship.
Arriving with Wolfman they discover that the ship is inhabited;
inhabited by people that Vash remembers from his life aboard,
before Knives crashed them. The story at this point gets a
little distracted with a bit of an emotional ménage between
Vash, Jessica and Brad before the episode ends with the arrival
of Leonof, killer puppets and three gung-ho guns. The episode
continues the trend set by the previous disc of mixing the
action in the present moment with flashbacks to what happened
to Vash after the crash of the ship.
twenty one, Out of Time, and the sh*t has really hit
the fan for the seed ship dwellers. With the ship under full
attack from Leonof and his three gung-ho guns, Vash and Wolfman
battle hoards of puppets that are killing anyone they can
find, but are Vash and Wolfman enough to stop the slaughter?
Out of Time is a full-on action episode full of action shots
with a nice sting in its tail. Essentially, the show is one
long fight scene, but well paced so that it never gets boring
last episode on the DVD is Twenty-two, Alternative,
and Vash and Wolfman are back to earth with a bang. Having
once more teamed up with Milly and Meryl, the Laurel and Hardy
of insurance detectives, the group come across a decidedly
odd town. Something odd has been happening to people and towns
in the area, they have been disappearing and it would seem
that a demon is to blame. Another good episode somewhat reminiscent
of The Magnificent Seven, ok there is only four of
them, but you get the idea, town under threat, orphanage needing
to be protected.
wishing to stand out from the rest of the previous releases
the extras remain a little thin on the ground. You get a Trigun
trailer, Japanese VHS Covers, a Villains Gallery
and a bunch of trailers for other shows. Audio is the usual
English or Japanese stereo.
only four more show to go before this excellent series comes
to an end, let's hope the last disc contains all of the remaining
