Trigun is an anime, or Japanese animation, series which takes place far in the future. In this future, humans have made their way to a nearly bone-dry desert planet, and are attempting to eke out a living for themselves. Unfortunately, generations ago, when the humans landed on the planet, most of their technology was lost. What is left of civilization has reverted to something like the days of cowboys and outlaws, and living on this planet can be quite harsh and is often dangerous. Vash the Stampede is a human who never ages. Although he is, at heart, a good person, trouble seems to follow him everywhere he goes. Towns are destroyed, buildings and business wrecked and items lost when Vash shows up. Although little of this is actually his fault, a huge bounty has been put on his head. This actually ends up causing even more trouble, as now wild and reckless outlaws are following Vash from place to place and causing even more trouble. In addition to being followed by outlaws who want the bounty, Vash also meets and is followed by two insurance girls. The girls, named Meryl and Millie, work for a large insurance company that always has to pay for the destruction that follows Vash. The girls' job is to ensure that Vash does not cause any more damage, thus ensuring that their insurance company does not have to pay out an more money. As the three travel, Vash and the girls form a close friendship. Vash also begins to learn more about his murky past, and also learns important information about his dangerous, murdering brother, Knives Millions. In addition, the travelers meet other people along the way, including a gun-toting priest named Nicholas D. Wolfwood. As they attempt to help the many people they encounter, the group realizes that the secrets that have been hidden for so long are coming to the surface. They begin to wonder if they can ever escape their pasts, while at the same time looking forward to a hopeful future.
