The story follows a hapless duo through their adventures into the unknown, teaming up with a lady samurai, cyborgs, cat people, and a whole other host of characters in an attempt to find an ultra rare space treasure. The animation is gritty and fun, and holds up well today. I especially enjoyed the list of voice actors all of whom really knock it out of the park.
Catchy space jams and melodrama are a staple here, and also expect some fan service and silly situations for our characters to get trapped in. Over all, the feeling is good, and you may even pick up on some elements other sci-fis and animes have borrowed from Outlaw Star.
Secondly, this box set - for how old the show is, the quality (both video and audio) is quite good. This is also one of the few animes with a decent English dub that won't make you cringe, but you do have the option of watching with the original Japanese voice actors (and subtitles). The way the discs are divided up is kind of weird: instead of being labelled 1-6, they are separated into three sets of two: Set 1, Disc 1; Set 1, Disc 2; Set 2, Disc 2; etc. It's strange but all of the eps are there and in order, so it's not a problem, just a strange numbering convention. While the box itself isn't one of those newfangled slimpacks, all of the content you want is there - considering how long its been since the series aired and was dubbed, you really can't complain.
