Original Tumblr Post: TRIGUN BOOKCLUB TRIMAX VOL2 PART 1
TRIGUN BOOKCLUB TRIMAX VOL2 PART 1
My thoughts on Trimax Vol02! Not so much deep art or thoughts analysis in this one 🙂
I wonder if the name has any meaning to it? As far as I understood this is the mansion where Legato and his henchmen are hiding, so I wonder if there’s anything to that name. Now what I found just now was that there is a musician by that name who apparently made two songs, one called “My Only True Love” and “I’m Coming Back from Viet Nam”, but no chance to listen to them. Interesting, I guess.
Joke: Midvalley must be playing really bad if that’s his audience’s reaction
It’s also cool to note that Gauntlet is trying to warn the men about Legato, that they should get away! He might hold no sympathy for them but he also doesn’t wish for their ugly demise that’s inevitable when Legato steps in.
Oh this whole chapter is SO yucky and bleugh and evil but the most evil thing is this panel right here. Sometimes the horrors that aren’t shown are the most horrifying ones.
Vaaash ♥ Every time our boy is remotely smiling I want to pet his head and boop his nose and hold him close.
Maybe I’ve overlooked smth during my first two reads or misunderstood smth but dear ma’am, who are you?? My only theory is probably nonsense. Or maybe it’s just some extra being controlled by Legato to help him move around?
I couldn’t resist. I need to make fun of Legato every time I see him.
Nick looks really cute with these glasses. Also good for you, Wolfie, getting to drive such a pretty boy in your sidecar!
The killing game? I thought they were only meant to bring Vash neverending und unbearable suffering? (Though Vash can’t know that)
Lovely use of the soundwords again!!
And this one! Also cool how the swoooshing of the blade is indicated with this white space. Black outlining and then a light shading…hmhm (taking notes)
Aah I love it when one part of the face is covered in darkness, showing mostly the eye. It’s so looming and effective. Actually, now I do wonder if this is something that’s still used in nowadays mangas or not? I don’t read lots of mangas atm and only one other shounen, so I’m pretty out of the loop how manga style has evolved (of course everybody has their own style but in general, I think you can often see if a series is older or newer. I NEED to analyise what specifics do give that away because that’s pretty interesting)
I think this is the first time it’s kinda directly stated that Vash is not human, isn’t it? Just smth interesting to note I think.
Ooh we all know you’re also thinking about you and your own sinful existence, Wolfie.
I really like this page and especially the left panel! The ground is so utterly devoid of any details, apart from the sand clouds and the lines that the roller blades have left. I really enjoy how Nightow keeps mostly to lineart without using lots of shading in the clothes, that’s a thing he does mostly in the faces the enhance expressions as far as I could tell.
Gotta agree with Wolfwood on this, Vash is being a bit naive. He makes it sound so easy, so much so that it could be understood as an insult to all the suffering that Rai-Dei had to endure, to the way that his life is now. I mean it’s not the case but it does sound like Vash doesn’t want to know or hear about Rai-Dei’s crimes, by saying it “doesn’t matter”. All in all it isunderstandable that it only fuels Rai-Dei’s anger.
I love pages where it’s no sound, only little snippets of action taking place, with different perspectives.
