Synopsis of Trigun

Vash Stampede is a man whose head is priced at $ 60 billion. The reason is a ruthless villain who destroys anyone who opposes him and crushes entire cities for fun, obtaining the title of “The Human Hurricane”. He leaves a trail of death and destruction wherever he goes, and anyone can practically be presumed dead only if they make contact with him, or so the rumors say. In reality, Vash claims never to have killed and avoids violence at any cost.

With his crazy donut obsession and slapstick attitude, Vash traverses the wastelands of the planet Gunsmoke, while being followed by two agents named Meryl Stryfe and Milly Thompson, who try to minimize their social impact. But soon, Vash’s misadventures evolve into life-or-death situations as a group of legendary assassins are summoned to bring suffering to the trio.
