Our hero Vash the Stampede disappeared for two years after blasting a crater onto the moon above the desert planet he saved from annihilation. But with good people and bad alike trying to track him down, he won't stay lost for long! Count on more crazy gunslinger action, new dastardly villains...and a new outfit, to boot!
Note: Nightow changed publishers to Shonen Gahosha and the series continued to be serialized in Young King Ours magazine. Due to the original publisher retaining the name Trigun, Nightow had to change the title to Trigun Maximum, which isnít a sequel--just a new name for the rest of the same series.
So, the first 3 volumes were published under the title 'Trigun' and the entire series compiled into 14 books as 'Trigun Maximum' (the numbering was also restarted when the title changed).

As said below, the characters are annoyingly "good", which means they laud way too unrealistic and simple-minded ideals, unfit to the setting of the story, and the plot that unfolds from here is accordingly lacking. Such half-assed "noble" values tend to make me cringe. I've read more than half of the manga so far, but I'm not sure I will be able to finish. Every time Vash starts acting all heroic/pure/martyr-like, I just feel the urge to smack my head against the wall, which is not healthy... (~‾▿‾)~
The manga might have many flaws, crappy art at the beginning (but improves with every chapter), angels for the scenes are sometimes vexing and not well choosen also the composition of the scenes is in some chapters irritating and confusing. But it makes up with an unique hero, interesting story and the great western feeling unfortunately, for me because I love western, in the later chapters the Sci-Fi is more and more the main theme. The ending was nice, not brilliant but I wasn't disappointed. There may be better mangas but all in all Trigun is worth your time.

only for goodie good people
if you like a mian chracter who is too idealistic then yeah youll like this one, i stop reading after vol 1. vash is getting into my nervers he's too idealistic, too goodie good!!
Hmm, I really like this manga and as mentioned it's far better than the anime, still for me there are some missing things to make this a 10/10, the art is very good, the story also starts of very good, but for me gets "too complicated", too crowded (dunno how to say). This whole "spaceship battle against the bad person who apocalypse" stuff irritates me, but nonetheless its very good 8.5/10
This manga is far better then the anime!
I LOVE IT!! Vash in the manga is better than the anime.
Great followup to a very interesting manga. This one sidesteps away from the pure old western shooter Trigun had and sticks in a heavy dosage of Sci-Fi into it, a REALLY heavy dosage. There's still some shooting but it doesn't have that western feeling anymore.
The artist keeps on drawing better right off the bat. One would think that a manga artist reaches his peak after the first few volumes but this guy continuously improves his work. More or less around chapter 73 the artwork is amazing and has no comparison to what the first volume of Trigun was (out of place doodles).
The plot is also very good. Very catching and always intriguing. Really a great choice if you like adventure and Sci-Fi. Don't forget to read Trigun before reading Trigun Maximum, this one's the sequel.
an amazing manga funny sad and cool.! a most read manga
One of the coolest mangas on this planet!!!
This is one of the coolest mangas, if not THE coolest manga, ever made!!! I like the art of Yasuhiro Nightow very much. A unique manga in every way. (I bought all the relesed volumes of DarkHorse.)
