Synopsis for Trigun Stampede
On Noman’s planet Earth, reporters Meryl Stryfe and Roberto De Niro traverse the desert in search of the infamous outlaw Vash the Boom. But the man they find near the desolate city of Jeneora Rock is a far cry from the deadly terrorist they expect. In reality, Vash is a carefree, passive drifter; he is a defender of peace, loved by the townspeople. His inaccurate reputation is actually due to the atrocities committed by his twin brother Knives Millions. Even so, Vash is nicknamed “The Humanoid Typhoon” due to the tendency to violent chaos that follows in his wake.
Chaos soon ensues in the form of bounty hunters seeking the hefty price on Vash’s head, and their violent pursuit poses great danger to the city and its prized power plant. Thanks to his prowess with weapons, Vash is able to resist most of these nefarious forces. However, he will soon have to face the ultimate evil: the unstoppable destructive power of his malevolent brother.
