Original Tumblr Post: TRIGUN BOOKCLUB TRIMAX VOL14 PART 2
TRIGUN BOOKCLUB TRIMAX VOL14 PART 2
Review for chapters 3 – 5. I’m emotionally dragging myself through these last chapters.
Ugh, this looks like an arm or a leg hanging out from the inner part of the plant? I wonder if in Knive’s raid to collect all plants, some might have even got hurt? (and, not all plants are in Knive’s custody, though a lot)
Yes clever bastard! You know I’m kinda rooting for Knives here. As smb else already said in their post, the earth guys can’t just come out of nowhere, meddle with this conflict and solve it deus ex machina! (and I do love that drawing of Knives here. He looks so cool)
Yucky. I don’t think I want to know what came out of the tube the othertimes.
I also read another post about this scene though I can’t recall what it said anymore, I think it might have been another emphasise for the whole plant telepathy thing. And that’s what’s happening here! The lost girl gets contacted by the feather, and as a result, her thoughts are being transmitted to the people around her. It’s such a cool concept! That one time Meryl was stuck in Vash’s feathers, obviously she got overrolled with memories and feelings and the impact was much stronger, it was a steady contact with the feathers and the entity itself (Vash). So the feather alone, or maybe specifically the feathers by the dependant plants, can transmit thoughts (and mabe feelings?) of the being they touch to the surrounding areal? It could be purposefully done by the plants as a means of communication, so maybe the feathers don’t always do that, just in this case. Hmmmm so many thoughts!
Trigun Mad Max style
And Knives is obviously feeling something, but he can’t trace it…interesting. Does he feel as the plants scatter their feathers to the planet below or does he feel impressions from the feathers on earth?
These pages with all the different impressions that plants had are so so cool…I especially loved how there are even kindergarten kids/preschoolers that were brought to the plant facilities to learn about them! That is so cute! Then, Kuroneko! And the other image of these two guys, it kinda looks like Nightow might be wanting to make a hidden cameo of someone? It’s not super fitting..but I headcanon these two guys to be from Lupin 3rd.
What an epic showdown though. On the one hand we have the inhabitants of the planet, trying their best for a peaceful out, and it looks like their efforts might bring them somewhere, because we have this beautiful montage of plant impressions. And then we have the earth fleet that just threaten to eradicate everything our protagonists ever fought for, despite them being kinda on the same side of the battle. Though who am I kidding, there are no real “sides” and no real good and bad people in Trigun.
Can I just post these images in a row…in this unconscious dream, Vash is seeing all the people he lost…first the terror of the last life he took, then Wolfwood..(he’s smiling! Not judging him, but smiling at him!) and then people from home, from July…and his shocked eyes are breaking me. And even more hurtful is him reaching out to Rem, to his mmother…but he cannot touch her or any of them. Because it’s still not his time to follow them. And he looks so done at the end but it’s here where he finds his resolution to go on and to keep staying in this world for now, isn’t it? A pitch black unknown future on one side, and his lost and loved ones where he cannot yet follow on the other.
The plant amalgamation is giving me either nge or final fantasy boss vibes
So many evil decisions to make for so many people in this series…!
Thanks for explaining because I wouldn’t have understood any of what happened just now!
Truly, his own kind of angel.
You tell him, girls!! I love how they are the perfect example of the people of this planet that no matter what, get back up again! And I’m sure this is all thanks to hard work and lots of tough experiences through Vash. At the start of the series, maybe they would have acted another way, but meeting Vash changed them so much, and gave them so much hard earned hope and belief that now there’s nothing that can easily bring them to their knees!
And he gets back up!!!
Maybe I was a bit fast with saying in the last chapter that was were he made that decision? Cause it looks like..it was parts Meryl talking, part the barrier, and part Knives yell that woke him up and had him keep going. Anyway, the first page here 🙁 What’s there left to see? Aw baby.
I like how the plants start to question what they’re doing…maybe not directly with thoughts but in their plant way, they are sad about what they do, sad because they did not only have bad moments on earth, and especially sad because I’m sure they don’t want to hurt anyone.
Aaah he’s scared of making the connection
And rightfully so. That looks painful!
Beautiful beautiful ethereal page
Knives too, literally breaking apart…and cutting the literal last string of hope!
I have never read a series that was so much about hope and transporting the theme so well as Trigun. In this moment of reading you really really hope together with Vash. Incredible how much these last chapters of Trigun had me as the reader in their grip.
Probably 2 more posts for the lat 3 chapters…only 3 more!
