Trigun Episode 6 - Lost July
VIDEOGAMES AGAIN. Really need to get better at sticking to doing these. Anyway. We open today in roughly the same place we left off last time. Vash is a hero, but the town still needs its plant fixed. Luckily, our bungling villains from last episode are worth a whole bucket of cash, so Inepril cashes in. Vash is technically the one eligible to collect the reward, but why take a small hill of...
Trigun Episode 5 - Hard Puncher
Damnit, this was meant to get written QUICKLY after the last one. I am terrible person. Moving on, we open on a scene of Vash eating a delicious looking (for SD, cel-animated 90’s anime anyway) steak while a child is whinging at his parent like an entitled brat. SUDDENLY BOUNTY HUNTERS, OUT FOR VASH’S HEAD. Vash is slow on the uptake. This steak is way too tasty to be interrupted by...
Trigun Episode 4 - Love and Peace
Right, this one is slightly closer to the last post. Let’s try to continue this trend. Actually, let’s not. If this continues in a linear fashion, I’ll be writing the ninth post before the seventh, and that’s some serious time-travel-grade shit. Fair warning: there will be quite a few screenshots this time, so many good shots to take. So, we open on Vash proving that he...
Trigun Episode 3 - Peace Maker
Whoops, this was meant to be written at most 2 days after the last one, but VIDEOGAMES Anyway, today we open on episode 3 with I believe our first view of a plant (not that kind, the giant-lightbulb power plant kind). These are INTEGRAL TO THE PLOT, so it’s nice to see that they turn up so soon, before we get any idea that they are in fact [REDACTED FOR SECURITY REASONS]. —- ...
Trigun Episode 2 - Truth of Mistake
GUITARS —- Back in the game. OK, Episode 2, slightly less… comprehensively broken down than episode 1. We open as someone in shadow is having a shoot-out with a moustachioed man. His moustache is ridiculous. You are meant to think it is Vash he is shooting at (it is not, Vash doesn’t do the ‘getting shot by some random dude’ thing). TITLE CARD Today marks the...
Trigun Episode 1 - The $$60,000,000,000 Man
First things first, let me get this out of the way: Trigun has an AMAZING intro sequence. Before the mandatory j-pop BS that took over all of anime opening sequences a little before, but completely after the year 2000, anime was allowed to have BOSS AS FUCK intro music. Trigun is an excellent example of this. Also, noted is the grainy, textured feel the animation has. Cel animation, RIP. GUITARS ...
Trigun - What I remember
I figure if I’m going to go back through series I have already watched, I should probably first make a little post about what I remember of the series from last time, so I can make a comparison after the series finishes again. For me, Trigun was one of the first full anime series’ I ever saw, in around about I want to say 2005. A heady time, being my first year of uni, and therefore...
What is... The Rewatch?
Well, I decided that since everybody else I know is tumblring to a lesser or greater degree, I should probably try and get some things down on electronic super-paper as well. “But what about?” I hear you ask. [PAUSE FOR AUDIENCE PARTICIPATION] Well, since there’s no way for me to hear your strident pleas for information (note, do not use the ask for this, I am making a joke,...
