    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?

    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.

    I used to think of it as pronounced Tree-gun.

    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?

    No, Scried is the correct way, its written スクライド.

    I think he was commenting on the quality of that show.

    I have to say I agree with that sentiment. The fights were entertaining enough, but the writing was miserable and large portions of the soundtrack were repulsive.

    If that was supposed to be a joke, I don't get it. What does "Screed" mean?

    Scryed was anything but monatonous. I can understand not liking it if you find it cliched, but Scyred's about as far from montanous as you can get. Monatanous is like Wolf's Rain or Sleep Alone Complex.
