    Why's It Called "Trigun" Anyway?

    Like This Thread!
    Granted, I've only seen about a third of Trigun episodes, but I still find it odd that the word "Trigun" never appears to be used in the series. Anyone got any info on what the title means and why the show is called that?

    Because Vash has three guns:

    His normal gun, the one in his mechanical arm, and the Angel Arm super-gun.

    So was it the first third of the episodes? Because you might of seen

    Spoiler:
    The other two guns when they appeared in the series. The second concealed gun appeared in Episode 12 "Diablo" (the one that introduces Legato, the mysterious blue haired man in white) and the Angel Arm appears in Episode 16 ("Fifth Moon").
    Well That's 1000 Posts Down And...

    Yeah....think of Trigun as a symbolic representation of...
    Spoiler:
    those 3 different weapons he uses, or in one case, is forced to use...they're literally isn't a "tri"gun...just those 3 different weapons

    You know when I first saw the name Trigun, I thought the trig was prounounced like triganometry. Actually, I still prounounce it in my head that way.

    LOL, my sister saw it the same way.

    She also hates the american one piece logo. She thought the show was called "Nepeg" for the longest time.

    To me, it's always been "try-gun."

    I'd ask the same about s~CRY~ed (to me, it's always 'scried').

    So, the correct pronunciation is Screed, right?
