Seihou Bukyou Outlaw Star Memorial Box 1
What They SayThe Review!
"SEIHOU BUKYOU OUTLAW STAR" is a 1998's anime TV series featuring sci-fi space action with a bit 'Chinese' flavor.
Gene Starwind, a guy who wants to become a great OUTLAW, gets involved into the adventure for the "GINGA no RYUMYAKU" (Dragon vein of Galaxy). Through the adventure, he conquers his trauma, finds out love, and grows to the real man.
MPEG2 encode of Cool gun/swords/kung-fu&Taoism/grappler- ship actions are pretty well done, there's no noises in action. However, it seems the gradation of blackish colors is disappeared due to the encoding.
The animes series is based on the "Toward Stars" universe, the future history that ITOU Takehiko developed from his manga series "Uchu Eiyu Monogatari".
In Toward Stars Universe, mankind is spreading over the Galaxy without the mystic power of Mana (which had an important role in "Uchu Eiyu Monogatari").
There're 4 great powers: USSA, Einhorn empire, Peter empire and Chinese empire Tin'Pa. there're some alien species: K'tarK'tar, Silgris, Colbo, dino-beings, etc. there are 3 forces: Earthian Space Force, Space Pirates, and Outlaws.
In #1-#4, Gene Starwind, an outlaw-wannabe guy of the frontier planet Sentinel, gets involved into the struggle between the Chinese "Kei" (flag) Pirates and an Outlaw woman Hilda. During the struggle, Gene notices another Outlaw McDougall brothers had killed his father.
Hilda dies, but she leaves him grappler-ship X-GP15A2 (he names it "OUTLAW STAR"), organic android girl Melfina (who wants to know her true identity), and an ambition towards the stars.
In #5-#8, Gene meets 2 women: Aisha Clan Clan ( K'tarK'tar officer on a special mission to find out the Dragon vein) and Suzuka the assassin. Since she hates the Kei Pirates for some reasons, she joins his crew.
In #9-#13, Gene and his comrades stay on the urban planet Heifong to earn money (for adventures and for maintenance/ parking/etc of OUTLAW STAR). During the space race that they participate to get the prize money, Gene meets Halley McDougal again, but fails to revenge his father. OTOH, Halley notices Melfina is an organic android. Also Aisha joins to Gene's crew for finding out the Dragon vein.
