All the Trigun posts are giving me nostalgia-feels >_< My first cosplay was Wolfwood & my blonde bff and I got called Vash & Wolfwood all the time!
Girl don’t mess with me. Trigun was my 90s scifi western (for folk that don’t care much for westerns) while the rest of the world discovered anime via Cowboy Bebop.
I was sporadically mainlining the TV series on Netflix over the weekend. I’m on episode 21. I am drowning in nostalgia feels. *bawls all over you*
I’ve never cosplayed from Trigun, and I have no idea who I would if I did, but it’s always been a favorite. If I ever cosplayed it now, which is a big if, I’d have to do a fancy as hell propping to make it worthwhile for me. Like making the Angel Arm or a moving Wolfwood cross shit (and I think I’m too short and chubby to make Vash’s coat work on me). It’s too old, too well known, and still cosplayed enough for me to do it unless I fully invested in doing it extra well.
Wolfwood sweetie idiot, come back. You need more Vash and Millie time, not less.
I legitimately forgot how much humor was the focus of early episodes. I remembered Trigun as serious with bouts of humor, but the first few episodes are humor with hints of the later depth and a lot of messages about human nature, hope, and Vash’s determination to be a pacifist as more background~y at first than I remembered. It’s a pleasant romp. The other side to the show becoming more and more prominent though.
reblog if you ever actually used a phone with a “rotary dial” on it
Wi-ch-ch-ch-ch-ch-ch, wi-ch-ch, wi-ch-ch-ch-ch-ch……
And getting your finger caught under the metal thingy.
nines were such a paain
and you tried to push it along to go faster and it never worked
The one’s with the weird quirk where you had to push it past a certain number before you could add another one. “You’ll never dial the three that way. Let me do it.”
Hearken to me, dear readers, and bear witness to the chilling tale of trying to watch subtitled Sailor Moon episodes in the late ’90s. These were the days of dial-up, when downloading a single transformation sequence clip could take an hour (provided your parents did not pick up the phone). Obtaining full episodes was an odyssey, often involving VHS bootlegs of dubious legality. We heard whispers of the existence of Sailor Stars, the series’ final season, but alas, a US release was not to be. Most never saw those episodes, and those that did faced a long, arduous quest, in which seekers chased rumors of fansubs through mysterious message boards and the uncharted realm of GeoCities. These were dark times.
