TrigunPerhaps one of the surprising ommissions when FUNimation took on the bulk of Geneon's catalog was sci-fi western Trigun. In case you've been living under a rock for a good while, the series follows the adventures of love-and-peace merchant (and most wanted man on the planet Gunsmoke) Vash the Stampede, aka the Humanoid Typhoon - so-called because of the trail of destruction that follows in his wake.
