20 years after messing with a heist for a notorious bank robber Gasback, Vash starts to head towards Macca City where rumors have risen saying that the notorious robber will appear, causing a surplus of bounty hunters to arrive in order to collect the $$300,000,000 for his head.
Trigun's setting has always been an interesting one, mixing both sci-fi and western into one and coming out the other end in an awesome way. With the surrounding deserts and sci-fi futuristic weapons mixed with old style western guns, the film bridges what may seem as two completely different genres, quite nicely into one package.
As I said before Vash is back and so are all his wonderful friends from the series including a few new ones. Both Meryl and Milly make a return as the two insurance company agents following Vash anywhere he goes to make sure his destruction doesn't cost them their jobs. As well as a return of the hardcore priest Wolfwood with his trusty cross-weapon at his side.
|Meryl warns Vash to stay out of trouble knowing from the past how it follows him.|
"Trigun: Badlands Rumble" is a sight to see after not having Trigun on the scene for over 12 years and if your going in expecting a masterpiece, chances are you might be disappointed, and if you didn't like the original series I don't believe this is going to change your thoughts on Vash the Stampede. However, if your a big Trigun fan or just love action sci-fi anime, then "Trigun: Badlands Rumble" is a solid film that's definitely worth taking a look at if not the whole series of Trigun!
