Outlaw Star
Reviewer: Brian Katchmar 12/20/2009

The year is 0158 of the Toward Stars Calendar. Humankind has learned to live in space and cooperate with other races. But it turns into a world of anarchy were pirates dwell and outlaws clash into deep space. Gene Starwind is a merchant who runs a mechanic shop with his partner 11-year old partner Jim Hawking. When Gene meets an outlaw named Hilda and revives the mysterious android Melfina, he gets into more trouble than he bargained for. He soon finds himself chased by a deadly Tao priest, cut-throat pirates, fellow outlaws, and to top it all off... beautiful women. Thus Gene sets off on an adventure to find the Galactic Leyline -- which offers the ultimate power... something that will change his life forever.
Outlaw Star is a true masterpiece. The plot is very intriguing, and each episode makes the search for the Galactic Leyline more and more exciting. The mood changes a lot, swinging back and forth from happy to depressing and back. Characterization is good. Each character has his/her own unique personality and motive. You just have to love everybody in this anime. The art and animation are superb. The mechanical designs are the best I have seen yet and the ship-to-ship battles are very impressive. With its breathtaking action and sophisticated story, Outlaw Star is a must-have for any anime video library. If you love sci-fi and adventure, this is title is for you.
I think Hilda and Gene make a much better couple than Gene and Melfina. Each DVD contains 8-9 eps, making it a very good deal.
