Editorial Reviews

Gene Starwind and his partner Jim Hawking run a small business on the backwater planet of Centinel 3. But all that changes the day that Hilda hires them for a bodyguard job. Now, thrust into a mystery they don't fully understand, they're on the run from the cops, the pirates, an angry alien, and a mysterious assassin. But they've got one thing going in their favor- they have the galaxy's most advanced ship! As seen on Cartoon Network's Toonami! This title from Sunrise, the people behind Cowboy Bebop and Gundam. Genre: Anime Sci-Fi/Action.

It's a 1pc DVD case that has pages for the DVDs inside.

The animation is very good (compare it with the one of Cowboy Bebop and you will get a very good idea).

First of all, I have to warn potential buyers of the new and used sales for this product. Those that state that the collection has different cover art or a different case are selling you a bootleg. Your bootleg could be either a very poor quality foreign sub (tend to have horrible grammar, poor image resolution, and no extras) or what is called an American Rerelease. "American Rereleases" are just bootlegged copies of the real release that have been packaged in bulk quality cases with zeroxed inserts for the cover art. While they are cheaper their sales do not benefit anyone but the bootlegger. The studio that produced and marketed the series is losing out, and buying from bootleggers taxes the legit studios by taking their profits. Profits that would later get put into bringing you new series.

So please, think about it before buying from a reseller and make sure you're getting what you're paying for. Buying from bootleggers will not get you a quality product.

With that being said, Outlaw star is the quintessential post apocalyptic space anime. Seriously. In this series you'll find an amazing cast of characters, a solid story line, and very nice animation that can still hold its own even when compared to more modern anime.

What is so wonderful about these older shows is that they were being produced when the broad audience still loved the extreme anime style and was willing to accept rather far fetched concepts without needing to be told in careful layman's terms what it all meant. The result? A series with good pace, surprises, and lots of action. Not to mention a lovable cast that, while still staying true to their extreme natures and rather stereotypical character types, are full of human emotion and still suffer from some faults.

Outlaw Star rocks!!!

(SPOILERS!!!)

Well, after going for a second time through the list of the anime collection that I have not bought yet (and I have bought a lot of them) I came over this show. Unfortunately, I did not come across this gold mine sooner. Fortunately, I eventually found it.

The story goes more like this:

The crew of the Outlaw Star, the best (battle) ship in space and a mystery covering it, consists of:
Gene, the main protagonist. Starts up as a bounty hunter and gets in all sorts of adventures and troubles. Strong fighter and an expert with guns.
Jim, Gene's partner, an 11 old smart boy and a hacker.
Melfina, till the final episodes you will not be able to tell what exactly this girl is all about apart from that she is the key for the L-lines. (SPOILER), she will be in love with Gene and Gene with her... you know what it means, don't you? Romance on its way big time, hehehe.
Suzuka, a very strong (and beautiful) Samurai woman who also is an assasin.
Aisha, half human half tiger a like woman, which can transform to a wild animal when pissed off, and super strong.
The space ship computer, Gillian, which has an opinion about everything.

Than we have a nuts professor switching constantly sites.

Hilda, an Outlaw hot bad kick a** female, who `puts' most of the main characters into the beginning of their journey.

Two brothers who are also bounty hunters, the so called Mac Dugle brothers, and create all sorts of problems to the crew.

this show came into my life thanks to cartoon networks toonami a number of years ago. i was glued to the tv every evening because i HAD to know what happend next. We're talking about magic, gun fighting, space pirates, and a story of different people coming together to overcome flaws in themselves and grow as people.

i picked this dvd up a month or so ago, and im on my 3rd time thru it now, the animation is showing its age alittle, but is still done soo well that you might not ever think about it.

if you liked cowboy bebop, trigun, or even tenchi, this story might be right up your ally...

Format: DVD
There's plenty of sci-fi anime series out there, but "Outlaw Star" is something a bit special, just like the ship in the title. Instead of comedy or pure futuristic adventure, this series strikes a balance of futuristic grittiness and some outright comedy, with some deliciously unexpected twists and a satisfying finale.

For money, Outlaw Gene Starwind and his preteen pal Jim will do almost anything -- bounty-hunting, bodyguarding, and other odd jobs. But when they agree to guard a strange woman (whose name turns out to be "Hot Ice" Hilda) and her mystery briefcase, they didn't expect to be hunted by pirates -- or that the briefcase contains a cyborg girl, Melfina.

For their own safety, Hilda sweeps Jim and Gene off to the system where she's hiding another ship -- the advanced Outlaw Star, which requires Melfina to fly. And when Hilda is killed, Gene suddenly finds himself the owner of a mysterious, ultra-advanced, ultra-powerful grappler ship. Except everyone else wants it too, and to keep it, Jim will have to deal with more than just pirates and Tao masters.

As the story proceeds, Gene will have to deal with a beautiful, lethal assassin who reluctantly joins up, killer robots the beastlike Ctarl-Ctarl, the terrifying Anten Seven, a prison planet, giant carnivore shrimps, and a familiar ship that might carry his father's murderers. They travel from planet to planet and even get into a space race, before setting off to find the Galactic Leyline.

Imagine "Outlaw Star" as a sort of "Cowboy Bebop," but not nearly as sad, and with more emphasis on comedy, money, and fast-paced space battles.
