5.0 out of 5 stars I probably waited too long to watch this rare gem! November 5, 2004
Format:DVD
Outlaw Star started playing on Toonami back about five or six years ago. I was just getting started then as an anime collector, and dismissed it as a DBZ, Yu-Gi-Oh, or even a Pokemon type thing. Unfortunately, I judged it without watching it to any degree. It played often, so I could hear those annoying voices in my head. I'd always seem to catch a few minutes, while I surfed the channel. The Jim Hawking to Gene Starwind dialog, it seemed a lot like a Robin to Batman type of talk, and grated on my nerves. The only thing that hit home then, "as possibly original", was some talk I overheard about caster shells. Bullets that varied greatly in degree of power, even though they were all fired from the same size handgun.

Over the years since then, I've collected as much of the best quality anime titles, subbed or dubbed that I could afford. Now I've nearly gotten to the point where I must wait for new series to be packaged, so I revisit some of the past ones, just to see if I missed any. I came across a good rating on "Outlaw Star", so I tried a few more sites, and found that sentiment to be consistent. What did I miss? Unfortunately, Outlaw Star has long been off Toonami or Adult Swim, and I'd have to buy the series to check it out further. Fortunately, its dirt-cheap compared to many 26 episode series for sale.

Ok, so what's the verdict? Well as you can tell from my rating, I messed up badly by originally passing over this series! The collection of characters drive a story where, like the "Heroes Journey" in literature, give them life-changing purpose. Gene grows from a slovenly bum to a substantial man. Along the way, he overcomes his space travel phobia, and the haunting events of the past that caused it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Really 4.8/5, but definitely more to 5 than 4... July 25, 2005
Format:DVD
Toonami, Adult Swim... Got so many great memories of Anime from both, actually, I bought 'em. Lol. And this Anime, Outlaw Star, has become my 2nd favorite Anime. Yeah... About 3 or more years back, I caught this on Toonami, and their Midnight Run. I really liked it, so, after more than a year, I finally got around to buying it, and man, it was even better uncut, and from then on out, I loved it! And jeez... On Toonami, they so HEAVILY edited this Series, it wasn't even funny... Even to the point of cutting one whole episode out of the Series. That episode held quite a bit of meaning for the Outlaw Star Series, and was definitely one of the best, and funniest episodes throughout the Series. And all I have to say to all those Anime lovers, Otakus, and such... Just buy it as fast as you can. This Anime is only 2nd to Bebop. My age rating for it is: 15+ (Graphic Violence, Profanity, Nudity, and Sexual Situations). Beyond superb.

5.0 out of 5 stars Just Amazing October 16, 2002
Format:DVD
I was wathcing this anime once and after the first five minutes I was hooked. Before I even knew the name of the series I was hooked. This is such a great series, once you get this, it will be your favorite anime, too.
I'm not sure what some of those other people were thinking - bad music!? Whoever said that, I pity you. Outlaw star's soundtrack is excellent, every song played ties perfectly into that scene. The dialogue is great - though not perfect. There are a few lines I would have changed, and even laughed at because they were so out of place, but that was very rare. Every episode is very funny; Gene Starwind's carefree, comedic, and often impetuous attitude add a lot to the show. His comments are always hilarious, especially when he argues with his partner Jim Hawking, the ship's mechanic and resident computer wizard. Then there's Aisha ClanClan, a Ctarl Ctarl - race of cat-like people that are very strong and often stubborn that can shapeshift into powerful tiger beings. Aisha does not like the crew of the Outlaw Star and is only with them because she wants to impress the empire and get the rank that Gene made her lose back. She often makes fun of Gene and Suzuka (Suzu to her). Though later she develops an older-sister like relationship with Jim Hawking. Then there's Suzuka, a quiet assassin-for-hire that gets stuck with Gene, and used him and his conflict with the Kei Pirates to settle an old score with her archenemy, who I won't mention.
Outlaw star is packed with action and comedy, from fighting the evil Kei Pirates, foiling powerful Tao Priests, battling the deadly Anten Seven to the death, or simply evading Aisha's vengeful wrath, there's plenty happening in the episodes to keep you wanting to see the next one, and then at the end...feeling sad that it's actually over.

One of the more affordable complete anime series out there, Outlaw Star Perfect Collection is a great buy for the quality of the series. Great visuals and especially nice music. Each episode has the Japanese opening music "Through the Night" with alternating (by episode) English and Japanese subtitles, the complete battle music which plays on the options screen (at least on disc 1), and of course Melfina's end song one (episodes 1-13) and end song two (episodes 14-26). A friend told me the opening didn't air when the show was on Toonami so that and the battle music would be a feature all by itself.

The main features, on every second disc, include a textless version of the opening and two endings, artwork, and video previews for other anime series such as the Angel Links spinoff and Gundam Wing movie. They're not numerous, but Outlaw Star itself makes up for that. The English voices sound great and realistic throughout, much moreso than the optional Japanese voices. English subtitles don't always match what's being said - I would guess that they're a more direct translation with the spoken word being altered so that it aligned correctly with their mouth movements; even so, this is not a drawback. Keeping subtitles on provides more insight into the meaning of the words.

This set also includes all the cut areas including the language (the most noticeable of which is an occassional s***), the so-called perverted but not graphic scenes with Gene, and full and partial nudity (full nudity being Aisha in mid-episode 23 and Melfina in beginning-episode 26). Episode 23 "Hot Springs Planet Tenrei," included in the set, has everyone in bathing suits (even Suzuka ;p) and revolves around a sexual plot that would probably suggest why it was originally cut from broadcast.

whats the difference
I don't know about the complete collection since I don't have it. I do have the the perfect collection though. It has all 26 episodes and some extras that aren't really that great: image gallery's, intro without the subtitles, ending without the credits or subtitles... I think that's about all... Read More
