Trigun Vol. 7 - Puppet Master (Episodes 20, 21 & 22) Special chromium front cover! (While supplies last.)« less
"This will be the 7th volume of Trigun leaving only 1 volume (4 episodes) left with this series. This DVD was really good, new plot points and you learn new things about some charactesr. But it didn't feel like this series would end anytime soon at the end of the last episode. So with that, it will be interesting to see how the series will end. Maybe it will leave it open for another series.The video quality is like the previous volumes. The transfer looks nice, sometimes little parts annoy me. The audio is well done. I listened to the English dub, haven't heard the japanese track yet. I am sure both of them are really nice. The dub for Trigun is amazing in my opinion. I really respect this dub because the voices match the characters very well and that doesn't happen much in many English dubs.The three episodes are obviously involving, 'The Puppet Master,' one of the Gung-ho Guns led by Legato. You learn some more about the evil people and their evil deeds (a lot of evil deeds in this DVD). You learn some more about Vash's past. Vash gets accompanied by Wolfwood and ditched Meryl and Milly. But they eventually find him as always. More humor, more drama, more action!Final Note: The DVD menu for this volume was simply amazing! It has the same interface as the other past ones but the nice music accompanying the nice background was amazing. The menu is a photo album that opens up and flips through a few pages to get to the other pages. It just looks really nice and works really well with the subtle BGM."
I can't wait for the next DVD!!!!

"What a great Anime series! I simply love the Trigun series and it gets better and better with every new volume. Puppet Master is one of my favourites. It gives us more insight about the Planet, Vash and of course, Wolfwood. I love these two characters and I hate to say this, but I usually cheer on the bad guys b/c I always find them to be much cooler. However not in this series, Vash and Wolfwood are wonderful character creations. I highly recommend this DVD for everyone simply because Trigun offers beautiful visuals, real character development and an exciting and suspenseful storyline."

"After "Project Seeds," I was kind of worried that the series was losing its momentum. "Puppet Masters" proved me gratifyingly wrong. In the first two episodes, we get to meet some of Vash's near-family; a city of colonists that survived in part of the original ship, flying above the planet's surface. Trouble quickly follows him in the form of three more of the Gung-ho Guns, that break into the ship, kill Vash's friends, and crash the city... and at long last, the mystery of what in heck IS Vash anyway is finally solved... sort of. In the final episode on this tape, Vash and his gang return to something of their normal pattern of cruising around the planet looking for wrongs to fight... but some doubts are cast on Wolfwood's allegience.If you're a Trigun fan, this tape is a must-have. If you're an Anime fan but not a Trigun fan, then you should be; go back and buy "The $$60,000,000,000 Man.""
And the bullets just keep on flying...

"The latest installment in one of the hands-down coolest anime series of the year is a definite eye-opener. But then again, which one hasn't been? A little more of the past of lead character Vash the Stampede is revealed, and a few more of the Gung-Ho Guns rear their ugly heads to torture Vash's psyche even further as he makes his way to confront his nemesis, Legato. Vash's "friend" Nick Wolfwood also shows a surprisingly darker side of himself, and by volume's end, shows just how different he and Vash really are. As a whole, this volume of 'Trigun' is one of the best of the series so far. There's only one more volume after this, but the story's gone along at such a rollercoaster-like pace, I've hardly noticed how many episodes have gone by. The plot takes a dreadfully serious turn, only to do a one-eighty as Vash's hilarious antics destroy the moment. But few characters can achieve the coolness of Vash the Stampede; he's a complete stud without even trying to be. If you've seen any one episode of 'Trigun', you know what I'm talking about. I've really enjoyed the whole "futuristic Wild West" thing this series has going. As 'Trigun' draws to a close, I'm almost chewing on my nails in anticipation of how it's all going to end. The only problem I saw with this volume was the animation. As intense as the action sequences were, it could've been a lot better. But it's been spotty in places throughout the whole series, so it's no real surprise. If you've seen the other volumes, why stop now? Get this one too!"

"If you have gotten this far you obviously like the series. This is by far the most depressing set of episodes in the series so far, but gives you enough to want the rest (2 more months until the next one =(..). If you havent gotten this far, you should, Trigun is a great series. Despite the group of sad episodes, I still say you should get this one to complete your set."
