What They Say
This is the story of Nicholas Wolfwood and Livio, two boys for whom friendship was brief, but still burned deep into their boyhood consciences. Those bits and pieces, though full of light, are mere shadows to these men of guns and blood and violence. They both have secrets up their sleeves...

The Review
Let's forget about Vash for a bit. We know he is in the middle of a family feud with his brother Knives. We know it hurts and that they are both stubborn. In the meantime let's check out up some real drama.

Wolfwood is in a fight for his life. The man has to come to terms with his past if he wants to continue on his mission. That means leaving that broom-head with his crazy ideals and taking on his memories head on. The friends he made, the people he grew up with and those who taught him to become Nicholas Wolfwood are going to be on this playing field. His heart, as pained as it is, has to decide how he will accept them all. He cannot think twice, because some will be out to kill him. And he definitely cannot remember who he was and why he has changed because nothing will ever give him his past back.

Trigun Maximum has always been part bullet ballet and part family feud. The irony here is that the ballet is not very easy to follow and the feud is definitely country but nothing like the Red River Shootout. This is one of the better volumes of this later half of the series. We do not get much plot or character development, but what we do get it interpersonal struggle. We get to dig into the mysterious past of Wolfwood. We hardly know a thing about any of the main characters. Vash?fs history is only shared in bits and pieces. To get a whole volume dedicated to a supporting member is much more than I could have asked for and something I find valuable in this series.
