"Initially, I was under orders from the editors to make Outlanders an action story full of monsters, mayhem and destruction. I came up with the compromise of living battleships, the biomech warships of Outlanders. These beginnings determined the final shape of the Outlanders Universe.

This is a shrine to the Outlanders Manga. Above is a random quote by Manabe, regarding Outlanders. Hit "reload" to see a different quote! Outlanders is Manabe's super space-opera epic. First published by Hakusensha in 1986, it wa the first of his work to really bring him notereity. It spans three years of publication and also spawned a video game and an Anime OVA. Manabe has cited such influences as Star Wars, Flash Gordon and E.E. "Doc" Smith's "Lensman" books, among others.
