So anyone I know going to Comic Con want to try this hare brained concoction? Tastes a bit like an apple fritter. Elfgrove’s tastes better when she makes it, but I’m damn well trying!

Also that one bottle had no booze craziness in it, that’s why the others are like a tad darker. Otherwise I believe these to be around 50 proof if everything is right.

I’d be interested to try your first  attempt. And since you’re starting to make the stuff, I ought to give you my recipe.

I have some that’s aged 2 years. Wonder if it is still good.

That’s a somewhat scary idea.

This redraw looks way better than the actual animation! That person’s not even a professional! Why doesn’t the animation look like this?

Well for one, could be a simple matter of stylistic choice which is up to the creative team behind the animation. For two, and this is the far more likely answer, you’re comparing a single frame in an animation sequence where art must be simplified somewhat for practical reasons, produced on a deadline and is meant to be looked at as part of a sequence of motion rather than a static illustration — and you’re comparing that to a detailed single rendering the non-professional artist was able to devote hours to getting that single static image looking just right. Think about that, huh?

Vash: I disagree.

The Trigun and Cowboy Bebops animes are both humorous sci-fi westerns with a darker twist in the later half released at the same time.

Literally,
Trigun ran 1998-04-01 to 1998-09-30 in Japan and 2003-03-31 to 2003-05-13 in the US.
Cowboy Bebop was 1998-04-03 to 1999-04-23 in Japan and 2001-09-02 to 2002-02-15 in the US.
Both are 26 episodes (CB had  a hiatus in the middle), but Trigun wasn’t widely distributed to US audiences until 2 years after Cowboy Bebop started it’s US release. I compare them a lot because of this.

Cowboy Bebop takes a more space-based setting, with a larger focus on mafia-esque plots, and the direction has a heavier focus in the music department. Trigun stayed largely planet-side, focused on post-apocalyptic themes, and the direction spent more effort on dissecting human nature.

Both are good. If you liked one, I think it’s a decent chance you’ll like the other even though they take very different directions on a similar vein. If you didn’t like one, well depends on what it is you didn’t like about it, the other may fill in the lacks or may be more of the same. Trigun is my preferred narrative of the two and I think the later US release definitely had a hand in why it has less of a following. It’s definitely a bit dated in animation and humor and it does a tonal shift around episode 12, but it’s a good sci-fi with plenty of humor sprinkled in, even the darker parts. It’s an oldie but goodie that I really do recommend to anyone that enjoys sci-fi narratives that are fun humor or those with a focus on exploring human nature — Trigun is both. YThe animation color palette is softer colors with a tendency towards warm shades (desert planet after all). The women are as varied and important  (although there are fewer of them) with their own stories and individual motivations as the men. The women are mostly modestly dressed, in an almost-steampunk western style that is equivalent to the men’s fashion choices (no more nor less). When they’re not modestly dressed, it’s made very clear that it’s by their own choice, and you’re never going to get the hyper-highlighted boob shots that Faye was often subject to.

As a warning, Vash does have moments of being a perv, or at least appearing to be one — mostly failed attempts to look up skirts and sighing after women for being fabulous. He gets checked on it by both men and women when he crosses a line. He also appears to be a clutzy goofball when you first meet him. Nothing about Vash is a simple as it seems on the surface though.
