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 »

The Galactic Layline
9 January 2007 | by jayvon2304See all my reviews

What is there to say about this wonderful world of Outlaw Star that hasn't been said already. First and foremost if you are a fan of anime, you will completely recognize this as one of the best ever created. It can range from the phenomenal characters to the overall bonding the protagonist has with his companions. In this world they're three powers the pirates, the space forces, and the outlaws. They all coincide beautifully in the grandest chase to find the most mysterious place in the universe, the "galactic layline". The story never lets up as it is entails excitement, and we begin to propel ourselves into this sci-fi universe of mystery.
