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!

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!
