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 »

How do you think this looks, Jim?
It's not bad, I guess.

In my opinion, Outlaw Star is one of the greatest anime series that have ever been made. While I have seen only the English dubbed version, I hear nothing but rave reviews of the original (which is for mature audiences only due to language and sexual innuendo.) The characters are wonderful and unique, and the plot has a purpose, not to mention above average animation. What more can you ask for?
