Gene Starwind has always dreamed of piloting his own ship out into the vast sea of stars. Unfortunately, not all dreams come true, as he spends his days working odd jobs alongside his partner, James Hawking, on the small planet Sentinel III instead. However, this all takes a turn when the duo takes on a job from Rachel Sweet who, unbeknownst to them, is actually a treasure-hunting outlaw. Tasked with protecting a mysterious girl known as Melfina, the meeting irrevocably changes the pair's lives as they are sent out into the great unknown aboard the highly advanced ship, Outlaw Star. Seihou Bukyou Outlaw Star follows Gene and his ragtag crew as they brave the final frontier, navigating the stars in search of answers to the mysteries surrounding Melfina. Encountering dangerous bounty hunters, space pirates, Taoist mages, and even catgirls, there is sure to be an exhilarating adventure around every corner.

The anime that got me in to anime, epic space drama that inspired Cowboy Bebop, if you like one you should like the other.


Loved watching this as a kids and for the most part I think it holds up.


Really enjoyable adventure with enjoyable characters! I wish there was more of this. Can’t believe I hadn’t heard about it ’til now.


A fun space romp with a charismatic lead and diverse yet likable side characters. Watch it for the adventures and the laughs.


Guns, girls, cyborgs, naked, gay!?, argument, pirates, fleeing the scene, hiding in a spaceport, part-time job because technically I’m broke


Awesome world-building (intergalactic space stations/hubs). Dialogue is poor. Jim & Aisha = best characters. Tasteful nudity and swearing.


This show was a real surprise – super fun and interesting story that goes many different directions. Worth watching!



    "We, who hurt each other so terribly, will sit here licking each other's wounds. We damaged goods will each seek the other out in comfort. If you are to die tomorrow, I'm fine with my life ending then as well. But if you want to live for me for one more day,I'll go on living with you today as well. And thus begins a tale of kindred, bound by their scars. Soaked in red and written in black, a story of blood. One of which I'll never speak. Our very own, precious as it is, story of scars. And I have no intention of reciting it to anyone."
