In no way "Outlaw Star", but yet "Angel Links" has its merits
Ok, it is true that "Guardian Force: Angel Links" takes place in the same universe as "Outlaw Star". You do see two characters from O.S., Dragonite Duuz and Valeria Vertone, plus cameos by Fred Lowe, Tao Masters, the bartender and waitress from Sentinel III, and some others... but that's where the likeness ends. Gone are the days of grappler ship combat (however, the Angel Links ship does get attacked by pirates using grappler ships), and gone is the crew of the Outlaw Star.
The animation isn't as good, and it features pretty awful computer animation for some effects.
However, there is a good story and some interesting characters. The main character, Meifon Li, the well-endowed 16 owner of the Links Security group, is funny, fierce, and very lovable. Her crew is also colorful, and soon it has the family feeling you got with the crew of the Outlaw Star. Kosei, Meifon's assistant, is another great character, the voice of reason and logic.
Dragonite Duuz and Valeria Vertone have been significantly improved. Duzz is now shown armed with a sword, and he is a master at combat. He believes in a code of honor and valor. Valeria is the tough military commander. The two create a force to be reckoned with.
Overall, the show gets a 7.5 out of 10. Duuz, Kosei, and Meifon are the golden characters here. The series in only 13 episodes long, but trust me there is a main story unfolding here, but I won't ruin it. It is quite dramatic from what I've seen, and I can't wait to see the last 3 episodes.
