Doesn't get much better than this
21 January 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

There are quite of bit of anime series out there for people to check out, and quite of few in my own personal collection. Of those, there's a handful I go back to frequently. There's Slayers, where I can get my fill of fantasy and slapstick comedy, as well as over the top and fantastic magical spells. I say Slayers is my all-time favorite out of habit, but when it comes down to it, I think my true all-time favorite series has to be Outlaw Star.

I may favor Fantasy over Science Fiction, but this more than satisfies my interests. From the outstanding cast of characters, to the wonderful story, all set in a fascinating universe full of history that just begs to be explored in greater detail, what's not to love. Gene Starwind is a fantastic hero, and I think it'd be hard for someone not to find something to like about him, and that's only for starters.

Unlike a lot of anime out there, Outlaw Star actually has a dub that's BETTER than the original Japanese track. Often times I prefer the subtitled version than the dub, but with Outlaw Star, I can't watch it any other way. And the opening song, I absolutely love it (Though I've come across plenty of people who don't).

All in all, I think Outlaw Star is one of those anime series you can't miss. People will tell you Cowboy Bebop and Evangelion, but I think you can go without them. Truly, you must see Outlaw Star if you call yourself an anime fan. You will not be disappointed.
