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.
