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.

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.

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.

Gene's Castor Gun:

An extremely rare item, The Castor Gun is the product of some very old technology. Instead of firing normal bullets, it fires projectiles called Castor Shells. There are twenty different types of Castor Shells, And each one has a different use.

The Caster Gun itself is a mixture of science and sorcery. What is actualy contained in the Castor Shells are potent magic spells. When fired, the spells inside the shells are activated by the life force of the person firing the gun. As some of these spells are quite powerful, they draw a large amount of energy, and using several in succesion has proven fatal.

Since the Castor Gun is a rater uncommon piece of technology, finding shells for it is often very difficult. As a result, Jim is constantly reminding Gene to use them sparingly.

Yet, despite the dangers and the difficulties involved with using the Castor Gun, Gene still finds it to be his weapon of choice, and it has helped him survive numerous difficult confrontations.

Grappler Ship: The Outlaw Star (Model #: XGP15A-II):

Grappler Ships are a special type of ship with a pair of large arms attached.
