  He's got guns where you wouldn't even think he could have 'em.

The Gung-Ho Guns just have firearms coming out of every orifice, don’t they? I must reiterate that whoever's behind this would’ve been seriously at home in the early 90s comics scenes. Is it reassuring that the "tacky extreme" knows no national bounds? I haven't decided. Though to be fair, the gimmicks are getting more appealing. I especially liked the 8-ball/turtle shell guy and the mech giant who bares all (so to speak.) 

Moving on... I never expected to be so moved by a dude with a pompadour, but here we are. Brad’s final speech about how foolish the air dwellers have been and his dying words were all quite touching. I guess that leaves Vash to the pig tail girl with one less shred of indecency (the age gap being the other one, of course.)

I’m starting to think that this whole show’s about inaccurate reputations. Vash is thought of as a psycho killer and skirt chaser, when he’s really neither; and Wolfwood honestly isn’t even living up to his rep. For one, aside from the cross and the chainsmoking, there's little about him that screams "priest." You don’t hear him quoting scripture or thumping a Bible. He did offer confessions early on, but he seems to have forgotten all about that. And he actually isn’t the stone cold killer you lunatics have made him out to be, either! He hasn't really been killing wantonly (to borrow a term from FMA;) he's been taking these bad guys out only when the time's right (and that payback with the Puppet Master was great, if I can say.)

This episode’s titled “Out of Time” and there are, indeed, only five episodes left in this series - - just one disc in the box set! I’m honestly kind-of hoping it could whiz by faster, because this series is really going on longer than it should. Like I said, it wish it’d been a shorter, tighter series of about 13 or episodes.

Watch this episode, “Out of Time,” below and decide for yourself, then read my comments on the previous episode here.

I am a BIG fan of Trigun.. I hold it dear as one of the ONLY anime series to more or less finish up its story... instead of just stopping, like Air Gear, Gantz, D.Gray-Man, and Tenjho Tenge.. all of the above are also anime enjoy, but just didn't finish with the anime.

Wolfwood's really a homunculis, isn't he?

I don't know. Every big show I've watched here (except BEBOP and maybe EVA) wrapped up everything pretty tightly by their ends.

I definitely agree Trigun should have been tighter, there was little need for filler in the series, but I guess the studio ordered 26 episodes and only had enough content for 15. I'm not sure how the manga is cause I never read it, but I hear that the events are not all similar.

You'll see. A little bit of a twist you might not have seen coming, and a good episode in general.
