(New news about Outlaw Star 2)
"My love, my dreams, and you...I won't let
those go, no matter what."
(from the theme song; doesn't have much to
do with the series, but it sounds cool.)
Outlaw Star 2?
THE PICTURE OF "WINGED JIM" WAS BY DAYNA-CHAN
AND WAS NOT ACTUALLY OF JIM, BUT RATHER, A PICTURE SOMEONE ELSE
TOOK CREDIT FOR! If her page is up, visit Dayna-chan at http://i.am.daynachan
for more beautiful (but non-OLS) pictures.
Keep your eyes open on Cartoon Network for Outlaw
Star; it gets rerun a lot.... There will be 25 episodes aired
(they've left out #24, an episode which is little more than the
main characters in swimsuits and some nudity--it does very little
to advance the plot, and would take more digital editing than
usual to make it suitable for American TV).
Better still, go buy the unedited series yourself;
it's reasonably priced on DVD.
THIS page is about the uncut Japanese series, unless
otherwise noted; I don't plan to summarize Cartoon Network
episodes. The DVDs are out (3 discs--9 episodes on the first
two, 8 on the last). All have dub and sub tracks. Uncut Outlaw
Star carnage! But don't expect Cartoon Network info here; I'm
sure there'll be lots of fan sites for the cut dub elsewhere...

I also have my Anime
Desktops page on this server.
The series Outlaw Star aired on Japanese TV from 1/8/98-6/26/98,
with 26 episodes, and is currently being released by Animevillage.com
in America in both dubbed and subtitled formats. January 15th,
2001, it came to Cartoon Network in dubbed and edited form. 25
episodes ran, and were run again. And again.
NEWS: Outlaw Star 2? Who knows?
Latest info straight from DragonballJJ1043@aol.com:
"I've got some news about a possible Outlaw Star
Star Studio This link is to the morning star studio
website go to "works" on the side menu. It seems they
threw away the idea for Sword of Wind and are now working on
Retaliation due out by September 2002. I know no details just
what's on the website."
I'm not entirely sure what this second project is,
not knowing Japanese. The pictures they have shown are some CGI
ships and a few comic pages...
News Service, who got the info from AnimeNation:)
After yesterday's "Ask John" article about
the slim possibility of new Outlaw Star animation being produced,
reader "Sany" informed us that the official Japanese
Morningstar site has tentative character designs and a story
outline for an Outlaw Star 2 OAV series. However, the same page
also states that because animation director Mitsuru Hongo is
very busy, there is no scheduled production date for this tentative
While this may be interesting news, Sany has received
the following e-mail response directly from the creator of Outlaw
Star (Julie's note--the manga/comic the series was based upon)
confirming that there are no current plans to actually produce
any new Outlaw Star anime:
"Hello. My name is Takehiko Ito. I can speak a little English.
You looks project in my site contents. It's plan for Outlaw Star
2. But, that title is only plan and frozen yet. We planning new
and different project now. Sorry. I love Outlaw Star too. Maybe
I continue Outlaw Star by comic. Thank you!"
sent me this
link (Japanese) about Outlaw Star 2 OVAs (he says it's
titled "Outlaw Star: Sword of Wind"). He summarizes
(please beware spoilers!):
Melfina goes to college and Jim and Gene go their
separate ways. Jim meets up with a Dr. Sputnik and starts
Hawking and Sputnik Enterprises. Jim falls in love with Dr. Sputnik's
daughter, named Diva. And Dr. Sputnik creates a new kind of Outlaw-Star
type ship called Sword of Wind. Hence the name of the OVA. What
happens after that is still unclear to me but use your imagination.
And later, DragonballJJ1043@aol.com
Well, it's not much but I hear it is circled around
Jim mostly and Fred Luo's ship goes down and the salvation team
didn't find any remains of Fred so Jim, believing Fred is still
alive, goes out looking for him in the Sword of Wind.
Keep in mind that all of this stuff is rumors. At
any rate, DO NOT ask me if I know anything about the second
series. All I know, I've posted here (I don't even know Japanese
myself!), and when I find anything else, I'll put it up, too.
If you ask me that question, I'll probably delete your e-mail.
(Angel Links takes place in the same universe as Outlaw
Star, if you need a quick fix. I have no interest in that series,
though, so don't expect any information here.)

Many of these pictures were taken from videos at Hard-to-Find
Anime Videos (which has dropped off the face of the earth...)
and the Amber Anime
Archive. When it isn't noted who contributed the picture,
I scanned them in myself.

Any corrections and contributions (episode summaries,
pictures, fanart, fanfic, corrections, etc.) very very welcome--just
send it through an e-mail or mail me
the URL. ^_^ And keep them PG-13, if you could, please? Though
this site is primarily about the Japanese version, the US version
is likely going to draw a younger audience...
