Original Tumblr Post: TRIGUN BOOKCLUB TRIMAX VOL12 PART3
TRIGUN BOOKCLUB TRIMAX VOL12 PART3
Final Part! Let’s get this party started for chapter 7-9 of Vol12!
hngng the way tiny Meryl is desperately trying to drag Milly away…oh my poor heart
Oh look another asshole. You can step right over there to the guys-we-have-no-sympathy-with-couch and have a seat. I see there’s still some free space next to Chapel.
Oh you mean he’s awfully quiet for a guy who just lost his love, who realized his brother wants to kill him and all his friends too, who you have personally mutilated, who basically is leading the streak of shitty-days-in-a-row?? I’m not sure but maybe it’s not completely unthinkable that he might not be up to conversation.
Man, that panel.
That’s Vash’s bullets, right? Sweet. (also not cool because it’s draining him, but the concept? Sweet.)
Btw I’m listening to the Stampede soundtrack while doing these chapters. Nearly every soundtrack is a perfect fit for the scenes one way or the other 😀 I fricking love the stampede ost
Livioooooo!!! Aaah our big cuddly cowboy has returned!
He’s so cute!! Wanting to make a good first proper introduction and being nervous about it! Awww <:3
He’s so cool!
I wonder if Vash knows how his ideals live through Wolfwood and in return, in Livio. He has just joined the crew but is already fully comitted to live by the credo to not kill. Livio’s not half-assing things! Wolfwood would be so proud of you.
Although Knives was resoluted earlier, it’s maybe one thing to end things in a quick swift strike, or see your brother slowly falling apart beneath you. Bit late to start caring now, Knives 🙁
Do you, though, Vash?
oh no the playlist switched to the song I used to listen over and over while reading Wolfwood’s last arc (it’s this here. I never watched the show but it made me sad enough while reading).
Awesome Chronica Angel/Plant panel
Aaand we’re getting some more plant knowledge! Well, the Independants though DO have a concept of self, right? The others are more like a hivemind.
(Comparing them to bees in my head caused me to ask the very interesting question: what if Vash, much like bees, communicated information by moving in special ways? I’m imagining he has his own special dance for “donut in northeast direction at 360m” that he would sometimes do in front of Wolfwood and Wolfwood just stands there perplex while Vash is hopping in loops and 8 figures. Hihihi)
Thank god Vash is so concentrated or he would end up destroying the northern hemisphere.
There’s a lot to analyse in the way the blood is closing in on him and caging him in. But mostly we’re feeling he’s getting close to the end of his powers, mentally and physically.
While the page before has been very cruel I am laughing at what appears to be the opposite of a yaoi hand.
In a twisted way I believe Knives fully means what he says here. To him, Vash and him can never have peace in a world with humans. So the only peace he can get is being dead, since Vash will never accept Knive’s ideas and path.
Trimax pages that would be pretty cool to have as posters, #34378
(they’re not dead though, right? In the background?)
This panel is Nightow creeping up at us readers from behind and kicking us in the shins with a roundhouse kick
Before I just read these panels as Vash lying there, near-dead, but now I think these lights are the lives he’s sensing in the city below! Plants or humans alike maybe?
And that tiny bit is giving him the strength to carry on…!
Heeey!! Hii!! Hi! <3 Hiiiya!
And woaah is that Vash’s black hole bullet ripping through the clouds?? It could be that, but also Chronica established a connection at this precise moment, so that could be it, too.
I am not ok, look at how desperate my boy looks.
Noooo go awaaaay
Oh dear god it’s Legato’s backstory. I’m not sure how many screenshots I’ll post…I like the title of the chapter though. “Two people against the world”. That’s Legato and Knives. All throughout Trimax, Knives never really seemed to care much for Legato though? I read in another post that this could have been different, before Knives met Vash again and became kinda obsessed? And that this could also explain Legato’s complete hate for Vash! I like that hypothesis, but I can’t recall who wrote that sadly!
Anyway, he knows how to make an entrance for sure. And he brought a friend to the party! Big iron lady…thingie…?
And I can’t deny that it’s a bit badass to directly stare into the eye of a laser of a big powerful space ship.
If that was even possible: Legato’s admiration level for Knives has just risen another 100 points.
There’s not really an explanation why Legato, as a human, has this power, is there? Let this be another myth that Stampede might unreval in their series for us to enjoy!
We are skipping the next few pages that we have all read to jump right to this spread here:
Because it’s a pretty beautiful double page. If not for the cut off faces, this could look pretty peaceful!
This is…aw man. Legato’s story is really cruel. I hate him but I also love his character. The perfect adversary for Vash, too. And Knives is smiling??
I’m sure it was Knives that gave Legato his name then. Must have been the best day in his life.
Phew!! Done with Vol12! Lots of great panels and pages to look at, again! Two more to go, then we’re throught. I’ll be a bit sad when it’s over 🙁 The bookclub has been a wonderful constant these past weeks!
