I've finished watching "Trigun." A few observations (minor spoilers):

  • I think I want giant cross-shaped luggage. Of course, that's probably just my peculiar love of luggage at work again.
  • I'm starting to think that ubiquitous freakish anime cat is out there watching me — that if I turned around fast enough I would spot it spying on me. DAMN YOU, FREAKISH ANIME CATS!
  • Milly Thompson's Gatling gun would have been far cooler if it actually fired bullets, but then I guess she'd have to kill people. It's still better than Meryl Stryfe's Cloak of Many Pussy Derringers, though.
  • Vash and Wolfwood lay the homoerotic undertones pretty thick. I'm not saying they ass-ram each other offscreen, but the rampant Freudian symbolism makes the possibility hard to dismiss.
  • Despite claims to the contrary, I'm not so convinced anyone is saying "OH OH" in the opening credits, but I'm at a loss as to what else it might be.
  • Meryl spends the entire series totally gripping; she is easily the most uptight character of the show. I suspect her attitude and anxiety is indicative of intense, deep-seated sexual frustration, although admittedly this is pure speculation on my part.

Run, insurance girls, run!
