Original Tumblr Post: TRIGUN BOOKCLUB TRIMAX VOL13 PART1
TRIGUN BOOKCLUB TRIMAX VOL13 PART1
Huu we’re so close to the end….let’s start with vol13! Chapter 1-3 review under the cut.
Again trigger warning for suicide mention, but it’s late Trimax so who’s really surprised.
(the japanese cover seems to be different than the english one, doesn’t it?) Anyway very cool cover, I really like this one! And it’s Vash with a black coat…! Him with black hair and black coat is giving me emotions!
I’m not sure I get this right, but as I understand it Vash deflected the shots by Chronica. If that is correct, well then thanks for nothing Chronica(grumbles) Vash’s obvious struggle to keep everybody out of harm, plants and humans alike, is so heartbreaking to watch.
That panel is soooo good though. I’m kissing every drawing in these late volumes because they all are amazing. What I especially love about Nightow’s drawing, besides the obvious great feeling for dynamic and posing is how he sometimes lets parts vanish in the shadows or dust, much like we don’t get to see Legato’s lower body here. Drawing everything out and putting too much detail into the pages would really kill the atmosphere, I think…and so it let’s us focus on what’s important!
He already got nearly everything taken from him!! How much further do you want to go? D: (until the end of course, rhetorical question)
At this point I’m assuming Knives has developped a pavlovian reaction of yawning around Legato.
But really, if there every really was some good-hearted feeling towards Legato, any kind of affection…I feel like it’s gone at this point. The point when Knives turned all his attention towards Vash and started his quest of liberating the plants was the moment he lost all interest in Legato as a companion, which left only Legato, the tool.
Just so that I’m getting this right, Legato regrets that Vash is already this finished, that he won’t get to have this big all-out fight to really prove to Knives what he can do for him, correct?
NOT THE HOLLOW EYES™
Oof, the comparison picture with young Legato.
And yeeeeah we got it Vash wants to die 🙁 (or just to be finally finished with this world)
They really got Legato’s exaggerated hand movements right in Stampede! I really want to see where they’ll be going with his character in the next season.
Love Vash’s little face here!! He’s close to the end but still making silly grumbly faces hehe.
Aw look here, neither Wolfwood nor Livio are really part of the ghg in Vash’s mind in this moment anymore.
It’s the trinity of gun-to-face Trimax. (Hm, these look really cool in a row)
What a nice comparison this is to the time, Wolfwood hold the gun against his head and told Vash to shoot! Wolfwood did it because he thought Vash’s ideals would get him nowhere, and he needed to be prepared to kill to survive and protect…but Legato, he just wants Vash to suffer by casting away his belief. Also he knows Vash won’t do it…
(silently pointing at Livio’s well defined butt cheeks)
I’m enjoying their mid-fight talks so much
Omg she’s smiling! She does enjoy fighting after all!
And she’s so sassy!! I love her 😀
And Livio being so incredibly cute in this pose here 😀 He’s really stormed his way in all our hearts at this point.
The stuff with the space ships trying to land is very interesting too! I just don’t have that much to say so no screenshots…also I still don’t really get what the tricking part of Chronica’s plan is? I can’t remember so I’ll have to wait and see.
I love that he’s so weird. What a panel.
No wonder Legato hates Vash so much if that is what he thinks. Would it be true, though? That’s in interesting idea…in a world where there was no Vash, and the rest would still have happened the same way, could Legato have been more to Knives? Well, it’s very hypothetical, but who knows. Maybe these two would have happily destroyed the world together without anyone holding them back.
I’m happy, this chapter is full of so many fun Livio panels!
With the best part being this little emote face in his speech bubble?? How cute is that! New headcanon, Livio in any au WOULD write messages with emotes after every sentence.
As a crimsonfang enjoyer I’m being very well fed with these interactions.
Their dynamic, especially with Elendira getting more and more pissed off, is SO fun! And such a contrast to the fight between Vash and Legato…actually, it’s a good decision to have this fight being a bit fun at times, if it were depressing as well, I don’t know how well you’d be able to get past this volume.
And Livio getting more motivated with this clothing, which is his reminder that he has something worth protecting and fighting for, is such a sweet note.
Next chapters will be discussed in a new post!
