Trigun (1998) IMDb

Subject

A world reminiscent of the Wild West. A much sought-after criminal turns out to be an easy-going dude until people die. That’s when his long past catches up.

Commentary

A post-apocalyptic Western and enemy-of-the-week action comedy. The ambience shifts are poorly executed, the biophysics terrible, but there’s a hint of substance. A strong example of the secular yurodivy or “holy fool” motif in anime.
