Trivia

Outlaw Star is based on a 1997 manga series of the same name by Takehiko Ito. That series is, in turn, a spin-off of an earlier parody manga series, also by Ito, called Space Hero Tales ("Uchuu Eiyuu Monogatari," also known in English as "Future-Retro Hero Story"). The Outlaw Star anime series has its own spin-off TV series, Angel Links. See more »

Highly recommended (on DVD that is)
4 June 2001 | by (Hinckley England) – See all my reviews

Outlaw Star is a blend of sci-fi action and comedy. The main characters: a wannabe outlaw; his child sidekick and business partner; an alien cat-girl; a high priced assassin and a strange bio-android.

Gene Starwind is the fallable hero who mess things up from time to time, he is also lecherous, or as Jim Hawking puts it 'a scumbag'.

Jim Hawking is the seemingly obligatory child main character, a bit like Ed in Cowboy Bebop, only without the irritating voice in the english dub, he is the responsible one of the company.

Melfina is the bio-android she is looking for the meaning of her existence.

Aisha Clanclan is the alien cat-girl, she is a Ctarl-Ctarl, a race of noble warriors, but due to a run in with Gene she is forced to team up with him - much to their chagrin.

'Twilight' Suzuka is the high priced assassin that is contracted to kill one of Gene's friends, but is somehow convinced to join the crew on a semi-regular basis. I put somehow as I don't want to spoil the story for those who haven't seen it.

The DVD English dub is good, I don't know about the TV one as I suspect that they will be different due to the occasional bad language that Gene uses. The animation is clean and the picture is relativley free from grain, I didn't notice any major problems on the DVDs. Now for the show itself it has adventure, comedy, semi serious sci-fi elements and music that grows on you especially the opening theme tune 'Through the Night.'

Now why am I recommending the DVDs? Well it is quite hard to not recommend this show because you can get it all for about $100 plus shipping online, yes, all 26 episodes including the one that they didn't show on TV!
