    I just recieved the Perfect Collection in the mail and started watching it.

    I've seen the first four episodes, and it's pretty good so far.

    It has a Cowboy Bebop like setting, and even a lot of the design is similar, probably no accident since the same studio animated both.

  4. Yeah CN ran it on Toonami a couple of times. they never aired Ep 23 (the beach resort planet episode). Trishield, this is definitly a series you will like. Its one of my favorites. If I had the money I'd buy the set as well. Enjoy it!

    Gene was pretty smooth in the first episode when he took out Death Rob and the assassins, but gets weak and goofy later on.

    :sad2:
     
  6. Yeah, but thats part of his charm. And he still manages to be slick. Besides any idiot knows that Jim is the real brains of the operation :p

    I'm not sure I liked how it ended, it was pretty unresolved.

    i've been working through the series. i took it up after finishing Cowboy Bebop and then lurking here to see what others suggested. It took a little longer to catch on with me, but now I'm into it.

    so just what happened to Gene after the first episode? it shows his with hands on a waitresses's ass, sleeping with whores, and basically kicking ass and then for the rest of the series he's your basic sexless space outlaw character???!
    big disappointment in character development with him. basically the whole show. while I don't expect hentai or anything, ignoring characters' basic sex drives (Cowboy BeBop did this too) goes a long way in keeping things uninteresting.
    I remember my fisrt anime ever, Robotech (all 3), which had loads of characters dating each other, trading partners, trying to get girl and boyfriends, etc. which made things interesting developing personalities for the characters.

    Outlaw Star can't be compared to Cowboy Bebop. They're just different. They're both cool in their own right. And SERIOUSLY why does it have to be about the sex drives of the protagonists? I thought that they developed the character fine without resorting to making lame hookups. That's what was so appealing about Cowboy Bebop as well.

    Gene was the coolest in the beginning of the show, I agree. I thought we'd see him easily take out more bad guys like he did Death Rob. The show always hinted at something between him and Melfina.

    Spike in Cowboy Bebop always had an interest in Julia too, so your statement isn't entirely correct.
     
  18. don't forget that stint with Jim and that chick he met on the spac station with the cats. too bad she was a bounty hunter though. ifelt bad for the kid after that ep

    While that may be true, Outlaw Star definitly holds its own. Its a really great series and you'll enjoy it.

    Hey TriShield.

    Didn't the Character Designer for Outlaw Star handle the duties for Macross Plus (i.e. pointy noses).
