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 »

Outlaw Star rocks!
4 July 2003 | by SSJAniFanSee all my reviews

Outlaw Star's awesome. Although falsely billed by the Cartoon Network as "Wild West, Y2K style,"(that's Trigun, you idiots!), it features a great mixture of action, humor, romance, and drama.

It focuses on Gene Starwind(the hero), Jim Hawkings(the.... kid sidekick, for lack of a better term), Melfina(an android), Aisha Clan-Clan(the comic relief), and Suzuka(the bad-you-know-what assassin). They go off in search of bounties, alien scum, and of course treasure, while dealing with space pirates. This show rules. Heck, I even like the dub!

Be warned, if you watched the Cartoon Network version, the uncut version is much more adult-oriented. Gene's a bit of a pervert, the characters will swear quite a bit, and there's a ton of bloodshed. In fact, one episode late in the series(episode 23, Hot Springs Planet Tenrai) was so raunchy that Cartoon Network couldn't even allow it! So if you're a parent, and your kid liked the Toonami version of O.S., be warned if you're considering getting them the DVDs.

BOTTOM LINE: Another great sci-fi anime!
