Vash the Stampede is the man with a $$60,000,000,000 bounty on his head. The reason: he's a merciless villain who lays waste to all those that oppose him and flattens entire cities for fun, garnering him the title "The Humanoid Typhoon." He leaves a trail of death and destruction wherever he goes, and anyone can count themselves dead if they so much as make eye contact—or so the rumors say. In actuality, Vash is a huge softie who claims to have never taken a life and avoids violence at all costs. With his crazy doughnut obsession and buffoonish attitude in tow, Vash traverses the wasteland of the planet Gunsmoke, all the while followed by two insurance agents, Meryl Stryfe and Milly Thompson, who attempt to minimize his impact on the public. But soon, their misadventures evolve into life-or-death situations as a group of legendary assassins are summoned to bring about suffering to the trio. Vash's agonizing past will be unraveled and his morality and principles pushed to the breaking point.

Half fun loving episodic chronicles of a man who loves donuts. Half serious breakdown of his life and why he just wants love and peace.


Classic space western that have aged well. Vash is one of the better main characters I have seen.


In a weird way, its a slow burner, requiring appreciation of the setting to get the most out of it. Vash is pretty cool, Wolfwood more so.


Vash’s whole character arc makes this show what it is. Worthwhile and memorable




Excellent space western. One of the best of all time.


Its psychological elements and examination of life make for a really dark way to say, “just be yourself”. And it’s all the better for it.



    I make bad encodes and whine about subs and if I'm feeling particularly memey, I make bad subs too!
