Otaku Evolution Episode 225 - Trigun: Badlands Rumble

Ah, the Trigun movie, Badlands Rumble. It's fun. And that's about all I can say about it. There's really nothing significant in its premise or execution.

But it's not a waste of time, at least. And after the subject of my previous video, I needed that.

For the most part most of my old toys are in pretty worn condition, some barely exist anymore. Take for instance what's left of my beloved Optimus Prime G2…
