Outlaw Star Perfect Collection Boxed Set DVD
Like the dashing desperado in an old Hollywood Western,
rhinestone-in-the-rough Gene Starwind is a self-proclaimed outlaw
who lives by a personal code of ethics. His sphere of action is limited
to the two-bit planet where he lives with his friend and business
partner Jim Hawking, until rebel pirate "Hot Ice"
Hilda arrives. She gives Jim and Gene the super-ship, the Outlaw
Star, and tells them about a fabulous treasure hidden at the Galactic
Leyline. The duo sets off, accompanied by beautiful assassin Suzuka,
Malfina, an android who bonds with the ship's fussy computer,
and, later, the abrasive alien Aisha Clanclan of the Ctarl-Ctarl
Empire. They face some nasty enemies: the Kei Pirates, the MacDougall
brothers (Harry, a psychotic cyborg, and Ron, a sadistic human), and Lord
Hazanko of the 108 Stars pirate gang. The expedition to the
enigmatic planet Galactic Leyline becomes a four-way race that
pits Gene and his crew against Hazanko, the MacDougals,
and a Ctarl-Ctarl battle cruiser. At the Leyline, Gene,
Malfina, and Suzuka confront...
Outlaw Star Collection 1 DVD
This rollicking adventure takes place in the distant future, when
interstellar space is divided among Pirates, the Space Forces, and
Outlaws, who live by their personal codes. Self-proclaimed Outlaw
Gene Starwind is a crack shot, a ferocious brawler, and a dashing
ladies' man. But he suffers from a fear of space rooted in his troubled
past. He lives on the two-bit planet Sentinel III with his friend
and business partner Jim Hawking, a kid who looks a bit like Duo
in Gundam Wing. Jim and Gene are drawn into a web of intrigue by
the rebel pirate Hot Ice Hilda. They acquire a supership, the Outlaw
Star, and learn of a fabulous treasure hidden at the mysterious Galactic
Leyline. They befriend the beautiful assassin Suzuka; Malfina,
an android who bonds with the ship's fussy computer; and effete arms
dealer Fred Lou. They also pick up some nasty enemies: the Kei
Pirates, Aisha Clanclan of the Ctarl-Ctarl Empire, and
the amoral MacDougall. Some fans have compared Outlaw Star to Cowboy
Bebop, but it lacks Bebop's noir atmosphere and gritty
fascination. Gene displays a rough-and-tumble charm, but Katsuhiko
Chiba's screenplay rambles aimlessly at times, and some of these first
nine episodes are little more than filler. Contains these episodes: 1.
"Outlaw World," 2. "Star of Desire,"
3. "Into Burning Space," 4. "When the Hot Ice
Melts," 5. "Beast Girl, Ready to Spring," 6.
"Beautiful Assassin," 7. "Creeping Evil,"
8. "Forced Departure," 9. "A Journey of
Adventure"! Huh? This uncut version...
Outlaw Star Collection 2 DVD
In this second two-disc set of adventures, Gene Starwind and Jim
Hawking shift operations to the planet Heifong, accompanied
by the lovely assassin Suzuka and the cyborg Malfina. The Ctarl-Ctarl
alien Aisha Clanclan joins them as a rather fractious partner.
During a high-stakes space race, Gene discovers that MacDougall, the
enemy he met in episode 9, is really two brothers: Harry, a psychotic
cyborg, and Ron, a gelid sadist. Nasty as they are, the MacDougall
brothers are small potatoes compared to the real threat Gene and his
friends face. In "The Seven Emerge," Lord Hazano,
the head of the 108 Stars pirate gang, sends a band of dreaded murderers
after them. Hazano wants Gene's ship, the Outlaw Star,
which rebel pirate "Hot Ice" Hilda gave him
before she was murdered by the MacDougalls. A secret coalition of
pirates and Space Force agents developed the ship: with Malefina
acting as its guidance system, it's the only vessel capable of reaching
the fabulous treasure hidden at the Galactic Leyline. Although
he's unable to discover the nature of the treasure or the location of
the Galactic Leyline, Gene resolves to take his crew there at the
end of episode 18. But there's still time for plenty of comic adventure,
including Gene's entry in the distaff events of the Galactic Strongman
Contest as "Jenny." Rhinestone-in-the-rough Gene Starwind may
remind viewers of a cross between Kain Blueriver in Lost Universe
and Vash the Stampede in Trigun. Like Kain, he comes out on top
in misadventures that never quite cover his expenses, and he's as
formidable a marksman as Vash. But he lacks the metaphysical bent
that enables Kain to wield a psi blade, and the viewer looks in vain for
Vash's reverence for life and self-deprecating charm. Outlaw Star
delivers an engaging, rather dark brand of comedy-adventure, although
the clean-up artists on the series do very sloppy work: Gene's features
change noticeably from scene to scene. Episodes included: 10. "Gathering
for the Space Race," 11. "Adrift in Subspace,"
12. "Life and Death Struggle with the El Dorado," 13.
"Advance Guard from an Alien World," 14. "Final
Countdown," 15. "The Seven Emerge," 16. "Demon
of the Water Planet," 17. "Between Life and Machine,"
18. "The Strongest Woman in the Universe."
