What is Thy Desire? Outlaw Star is coming to Blu-ray and Collector’s Edition!

16 years after its first run on Toonami, Outlaw Star is coming to home video–and for the first time on Blu-ray! From Sunrise (the studio behind Cowboy Bebop), Outlaw Star was one of the most famous space westerns for North American anime fans, bringing a very specific sense of cool with space pirates, bounty hunters, gun shootouts, and a general passion for adventure. This is a series whose humor and story still live up surprisingly well almost 2 decades later, and we’re so excited to present it in glorious HD!
