Tuxedo Blowing in the Wind is the first episode and premiere of Gun X Sword Anime series. It first aired on the 5th of July, 2005. It is the first episode in the first Volume: The Endless Illusion.
A lone wanderer wearing a tuxedo and a Cowboy hat enters a vast and desolate town. He come across a group of ruffians and a girl in trouble. Little does he know that his fate and hers are soon to entwine...
On the verge of starvation, a man named Van, enters a church looking for food, but he encounters some thieves after a 12-year-old girl named Wendy Garret. After being rescued, Wendy graciously brings him back to her town of Evergreen, where she treats him to lunch.
Van meets the Mayor of Evergreen, who asks for Van's help. He explains that Evergreen is under siege by a gang called the Wild Bunch led by their boss, Lucky Roulette. Lucky then makes an appearance in the town, making a public threat that he will attack the town if they don't hand over their vault.
The Mayor begs for Van's help, but he declines. Wendy persistently chases after him, even offering to be his bride.
After Van defeats Lucky Roulette, Van and Wendy confront Lucky on the whereabouts of Michael Garret, Wendy's brother. Lucky says he sold Michael to a man with a claw on his right hand a week past, but doesn't know where they are now.
The next day, when Van leaves to continue his search for The Claw, Wendy informs him she is joining him because she intends to rescue her brother. Nothing Van can say will convince her otherwise. Whether he likes it or not (and he doesn't), he has a companion.
