Trigun Maximum  
Login to add items to your list, keep track of your progress, and rate series!
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 isn´t a sequel but a new name for the rest of the series. 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).

Won the Seiun Award at the 48th Japan Science Fiction Conventionwere for the best comic of the year.

My favorite character of all time.

Vash is a character I adore. Probably the 10 might be force, since I adore the character, but he is after all the main part of this story. I will probably update my review when I am done reading Maximum, but I had to say this.

People that complain that he is goodie two shoes, obviously point out his main characteristic. But These people are probably either people that a) Have not read long enough to realize he has a reason or b) do not care what is the reason of him so STUPIDLY denying of killing, even to protect the ones he loves.

Vash is haunted in a way by Rem and his love for her. He vowed to her he would never kill and thus he upholds that vow, no matter what. If Vash fears something, is not just to kill and break his vow, as much as killing and losing Rem. He feels Rem is always with him and if he will break his promise, that will make him lose her.

Mind you, I am not saying he is not ABSOLUTELY STUPID for not breaking his promise, to save the living and breathing friends of his. I am just saying that it is better to connect it to fear. It will make people stop wanting to femaledogslap the heck out of Vash.

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.

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

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.
