It's been ten years since I saw Trigun, and even after all this time, I still can't fathom why so many people vehemently call this a classic in the anime genre, when it really has about as much artistic integrity as the Pokémon anime titles.
While the tones, forms of mature content, and art styles don't clash quite as hard with titles like Elfen Lied and High School of the Dead, it's still a salad bowl of elements that simply don't go together. This anime tries to be serious and silly in great quantities throughout the whole series, and this was a huge annoyance to me.
Vash the Stampede is among the most annoying anime characters of all time. He's a bunch of different personalities rolled into one, and his transitions from one personality to another at the drop of a hat are totally obnoxious.
It's like the creators of this anime couldn't decide to pick a certain tone and style to Trigun, so they just mashed everything together, which is among the absolute worst decisions you can make when creating anything in the artistic medium.
Quite frankly, I should get to work either drawing Batman beating the shit out of Vash or of The Punisher mowing Vash down with an M4 carbine loaded with armor-piercing bullets.
