Trigun (Japanese: トライガン) is a Japanese manga series written and illustrated by Yasuhiro Nightow. It was first serialized in Tokuma Shoten's shōnen manga magazine Monthly Shōnen Captain from April 1995 to January 1997, when the magazine ceased its publication. The series continued its publication in Shōnen Gahosha's seinen manga magazine Young King OURs, under the title Trigun Maximum, from October 1997 to March 2007.
Set on the fictional planet known as No Man's Land, the plot follows Vash the Stampede, a famous gunman with a mysterious past who is constantly fighting bounty hunters seeking to obtain the immense bounty on his head.
Trigun was first adapted into a 26-episode anime television series by Madhouse. It aired on TV Tokyo from April to September 1998. An anime feature film, Trigun: Badlands Rumble, premiered in Japan in April 2010.
