Outlaw Star (Collection 1)
Anime DVD Review

With what may be the best opening song since the original Hokoto No Ken, this series starts off like a rocket and doesn't stop until you get to the Galactic Leyline. The motley crew of title spacecraft is assembled over the first few episodes, and if you've seen Cowboy Bebop, you'll no doubt recognize quite a few of the same voice actors. They do an impressive job of bringing to life the zany characters — from the troubled, brooding Gene Starwind who's afraid to fly in space, to the hysterical "cat-girl" Aisha Clanclan who seems to have a knack for getting into trouble.

Humor, mystery and long hair...Or perhaps you think you've seen this already because it aired on Cartoon Network? Guess again! This uncut version is rated 13 Up for nudity, sexual situations, profanity, and violence. Yeah, that's right, Melfina's hot-pants and bra were digitally painted on for the American broadcast — wait'll you see her when she bonds with the ship's navigation system in this version! Overall, the series does a great job of combining the action with a good amount of humor, while at the same time, drawing you nearer and nearer to the mystery of the treasure that they all seek at the leyline.
