I just recently noticed Trigun was here on CR and it got me thinking, which series is more preferable over the other in terms of themes and overall meanings?

I gotta go with Trigun because of the protagonist heartfelt attempt at non-violence.

And for any and all Yoshiro Nightow fans, does anyone know what future plans he has regarding any other anime series? i mean gungrave is already a few years old, so is that it for him or will he at least continue with character designing in video games?

I agree with Trigun. It's hard to choose though.

If I understood you correctly, this thread is about preferred themes. Trigun uses sort of an old theme used by a lot of anime primarily in the ancient japan setting. Rurouni Kenshin and Peacemaker are examples to name a few. In terms of theme, I would have to go with something along the lines of Gunslinger Girl. The love you show to others is important for their development. Of course, Gunslinger Girl could have been a lot better, but it had a good concept.

well i intended it only between trigun and gungrave, but if your gonna extend it to all anime, then id personally go for a romantic, specifically Suzuka. I know its not a great anime and ive seen much better, but for whatever reason it is, i connect with it and the dude's tenacity to keep going as well as suzuka's dilemma over whether or not to accept his feelings after going through something traumatic herself. Moreover, I was on a school cross country team and i also liked a female sprinter.

LOL. . . .good thought process cbrisram. Well, I prefer Trigun over gungrave. But gungrave was great. I think the action sequence in gungrave was more spectacular than triguns' but overall story and comdeic relief and entertaining. . .trigun rules. But I can't help it much. . .i just love both series to distraction. . .

Gunslinger girl was alright. . .it could've been better. .. but I prefer it over gun X sword. . .
The mechs in gun x sword totally killed it for me.

Oh this was originally between Gungrave and Trigun. I dunno. Gungrave IMO was horrible. You had like 7 episodes of grave and 19 of one long flashback. You know what's going to happen. The concept wasn't that great either. Joining the Mafia to protect your loved ones. That also puts them in danger. Of course, Nightow made it into a society where you would die if you weren't part of the mafia. I also hated the elevator music that gungrave had in the soundtrack. Admittedly though, I cried at episodes 2 and 3. Then it went down hill from there.

i guess i can understand the whole predictability thing, but as far as the flashback concept, i think nightow saw it as a neccessary aspect of the show although he could have started off from the beginning to spare us from that useless first episode. Althoughi disagree it went downhill, Brandon's rise in and dealings with millenion were fairly interesting, and most of the deaths of characters were pretty sad. The conclusion was great becuase they both realized their mistakes and died as mutual friends/enemies. Being predictable is irrelevant, it was an above average action series with some good drama elements.
