“Vash the Stampede” is a man whose head is priced at $60 billion. The reason, he is a ruthless villain who destroys everyone who opposes him and crushes entire cities for fun, earning the title of “The Human Hurricane”. He leaves a trail of death and destruction wherever he goes, and anyone can be practically left for dead if they just happen to make contact with him, or so the rumors say. In reality, Vash claims never to have killed and avoids violence at any cost.
With his crazy donut obsession and buffoonish attitude, Vash traverses the wastelands of the planet Gunsmoke, while being followed by two agents named Meryl Stryfe and Milly Thompson, who try to minimize his social impact. But soon, Vash’s misadventures evolve into life-or-death situations as a group of legendary assassins are summoned to bring suffering to the trio.
