Trigun Stampede Plot
The setting of Trigun Stampede will be an intergalactic planet in the 32nd century. This land far away would have five bright moons shining over its grounds. A few handfuls of survivors live on a “Plant” there. This Plant is a bio-powered reactor that creates all kinds of matter from scratch. These survivors have it extremely hard in this entirely barren no-mans-land. Not only are they threatened by these harsh conditions, but they also have a plethora of deformed creatures looking to feast on their flesh and blood.
Among these survivors is the highly skilled gunfighter and pacifist Vash The Stampede. He has a bounty of 60 billion dollars and is constantly trying to escape and fight bounty hunters. He is also known as the Humanoid Typhoon, and people fear getting involved with him. Except for one: Meryl Stryfe. Meryl is curious about how and why Vash got a bounty this huge on his head.
Meryl and her partner reporter, Milly Thompson, are employees at Bernardelli Insurance Society. The two find Vash left to fend for himself with his hands tied in the desert one day. The two rookie reporters take their chances and ask Vash to join him on his mission. They use this to get a major scoop on how Vash earned himself this high of a bounty. As the two continue to uncover things, they discover something huge: Vash has an evil twin brother named Millions of Knives.
