One thing that often stands out about old anime is the use of Engrish – badly written English that was probably never spell checked by anyone remotely familiar with the English language. Trigun has its fair share of Engrish too: The city of May is misspelled on a sign post that refers to her as Mai. One character is called Rem Saverem, but the production studio horribly misspelled her name and she appears in the population archives as Lem Sayblem. Funny how these things used to pass unnoticed. I’m sure that the animation studios are more aware of these problems today and fix them in time for the DVD/BD release.
