Outlaw Star is an anime series that aired in 1998. It originally had twenty-six episodes and six reported fillers.
In a time when people were exploring space, an asteroid containing dragonite crashed in the Arashon Desert. The discovery of this valuable material would allow spacecrafts to travel faster than light and span vast distances across the Universe with short notice. As more colonies are found throughout outer space, these “pirates,” “assassins,” or ‘outlaws’ began to threaten humanity’s new frontier.
