[ L A M B ] トライガン → shonen whut  
FILM: トライガン ("Trigun")
DIRECTED BY: Nishimura Satoshi
RELEASED IN: 1998 (Japan)

As you can learn from the Wikipedia entry on the subject, the Trigun anime series is based on a manga of the same name by Yasuhiro Nightow, whose name I do not entirely understand. Originally published in Shonen Capitain magazine from 1995 on, it was renamed and continued in Young King Ours magazine, after Shonen Capitain met with it's rather untimely end. For some reason, it was renamed "Trigun Maximum" when this exchange of venue took place, but the story was nontheless continued as if it's publication had never stopped. The series ended in 2007, just under ten years after the anime was produced.

For this reason, the Trigun anime and the Trigun manga are rather dissimilar entities, which is not altogether uncommon - both are considered classics by American fans. The anime aired twenty-six episodes when it ran, and a movie is planned for release in 2009, according to AnimeKon. It is famous as having a sort of "space cowboy" theme to it, which leaves room for a lot of skanky outfits and cool guns. Trigun is also home to a cast of vibrant characters including, but not limited to, Vash the Stampede, Meryl Stryfe, and Milly Thompson.

Because this anime was released so long ago (ha, long ago - like nine years is that much time) we will be watching it on VHS tape which, unfortunately, is dubbed over in English. However, I ask that members watch the episodes studiously and join us after the last episode on the tape for a Socratic seminar on English dubbing and why we like subbing better.

RATING: ♥♥♥♥
