"I kinda liked the first trigun disc, thought some may not have. I enjoyed the second one more than the first, and some of those who didnt like the first would jump on the band wagon. I loved the third disc with the introduction of Wolfwood, and by the time you see the third disc you would have to like it. But then I ordered the fourth disc [from] suncoast and got it ten days in advance and was so amazed at the episodes. The last episode on the disc is mostly a through away which just reviews the previous episodes from 1 and up. But the first two are the best episodes i have seen so far. And they finally introduce some worthwhile villans like legato bluesummers. Legato is in it momentarilly but you can see a future for him he just comes off as EVIL. If you see this one you are gonna want to buy them all. The series just gets better with ever release. Trigun is one of the best animes i have seen in a while. It's true It's True, This is right up there near the top of the list of the best anime series of all time."
The series takes a surprising turn...

"Or maybe not-so-surprising. I mean, I knew there was SOMETHING dark lurking around; Vash's trippy dream sequences about Rem are proof enough of that. The fact that episode 12 was almost completely serious (except for the priceless dodgeball scene and Milly's cryptic reference to muffins) didn't totally throw me; still, I was amazed at just HOW serious it could be. Death, destruction, a completely frightening villain with a penchant for hotdogs and a sexy voice (I love Seki Toshihiko)... and Vash getting Really Really [upset]. Wow. The first episode on this tape is also good (it features Wolfwood and pudding - did that come out wrong?) and the last is one of the most worthwhile recap episodes I've ever seen, not only because we get to see Vash shirtless, but because it actually brings up little things that happened in earlier episodes which I'd completely forgotten about. Still, episode 12, aptly titled "Diablo", is reason enough for purchasing this volume. If you've written the series off as being just goofy slapstick, this one'll be sure to change your mind."

"This DVD has one of the creepiest villains yet to come out of an anime. The first confrontation that Vash has with him is the most original I have seen yet. I don't want to ruin anything for you, but rather keep you in suspense. Vash is literally driven insane in this DVD and is much more serious than comedic for a change, which IS a good thing. It is sad to see Wolfwood depart from Vash at the end of the discs first episode, but something tells me that is not the last of him we will see. Anyway, definitely pick this up; you are in for quite an experience! DON'T MISS OUT!!"
If you thought Trigun couldn't be serious, you were wrong...

"Um...wow.This DVD has succeeded in completely flooring me. I have watched it 12 times since getting it 5 days ago, and I still can't get enough.For a recap: Vash is not to be messed with. In this DVD we have the introduction of Legato Bluesummers and the Gung-ho Guns. These are the first real villians in the series, and they truly are worthy of it. Legato is purely psychopathically EVIL. He has no consideration for human life, and is probably the second best villian of all time in anime (in my opinion). This DVD starts off Triguns serious phase, a phase which I believe will last to the end. This shows Vash's truly bitter and angry side, and I won't spoil the surprises also shown in this dvd...The Music: Ok, the music is truly trippy. The scene where Legato and Vash meet has the most eccentric score I have ever heard. I have always enjoyed the music, but it just has gotten better (and wierder too).The bad: Ok, the animation quality seems to be going slightly downhill. Only slightly, mind you, yet downhill nonetheless (in my opinion). I am hoping that this is only a phase, a point where they are saving the budget for later shows or some other logical reason. But this is all subjective in opinion anyways.The DVD itself: I continue to be dissapointed in the companies which remaster the english soundtracks, yet fail to do so with the Japanese tracks. My stereo setup has the frequent habit of showing up every shortcoming in a soundtrack, and the detail which is brought out in the english track is forgotten sometimes in the Japanese. Ho-hum. I guess I am one of the few who watches with subtitles anyways.The picture is also excellent (well above par for a lot of anime series). The menu screens continue to amaze me as well (go pioneer! way to use the looping animations!).So to finish this all off, I highly recommend this DVD, for both picture and plot. Get it if you can!"
