The new anime series showcases the gunslinging pacificist, Vash the Stampede, who has a $$6 million bounty on his head. Rookie reporter Meryl Stryfe and her jaded veteran partner are investigating the vigilante and realize he hates shedding blood. Eventually, their investigation uncovers that Vash also has an evil twin brother, Millions Knives.
