If you haven’t read chapter 1, and prefer to read a wall of text, Eslend is about a world covered in Snow.
Well because Trigun started off in a desert-like planet, so why can’t Eslend be in a world of ice?
Actually, that’s part of the inspiration to the setting of the story. Eslend is covered in snow. But what else can I stick in there to make it even more crazy?! I know! People wearing mask!
What…? Wait… Why?!
Why? Because Fuck you is why!
Eslend is covered in snow. People who live in this world wear masks. The main character doesn’t. Now read it!
