A redneck gun-for-hire and his mechanical whiz-kid partner take up a bodyguard job, only to find that they are in for more than they bargained for when their client "acquires" a special item that some very well-armed and angry people are determined to retrieve. The story begins when Jeen and his sidekick, Jim, are hired by a pirate, Hilda, to guard her as she obtains the necessary item to activate a hidden ship. To Jeen and Jim's surprise the "item" turns out to be a lovely girla”an androida”named Melfeena, who is the only one who can interface with the ship Jeen eventually renames Outlaw Star. Throughout this adventure, they are pursued by pirates, although whether the pirates' objective is Melfeena or the Outlaw Star has not been made clear yet. To complicate things and add a little angst into the series, Jeen has space phobia, a result of being bundled into an ejection pod by his father as a child and then shot into space as the lone survivor of a pirate attack. Along the way, Jeen and co. run into Eisha, a cat-like alien of the Kataar-Kataar Empire with monstrous physical strength and an equally monstrous appetite. Eisha takes this encounter rather unhappily (and rightly so!), and haunts Jeen as he travels from space station to space station. Unfortunately, the only way she can pay her way is to work as a waitress! Later, Jeen also meets up with a female assassin who can cut through buildings with a wooden sword! One more thing I really liked was the Outlaw Star itself. It has little mechanical arms that can grapple or hold guns, and when it goes up against other pirate ships, which also have arms, it becomes a hilarious wrestling match between otherwise stately weapons of war. In addition, the main computer of the Outlaw Star speaks through little robots about the size of a soda can. What makes it really funny is that they have faces and move along rails strung throughout the ship! It is this dichotomy between the serious and the wacky that makes OUTLAW STAR such fun. Sounds like a typical slam-bang space action anime? Well, OUTLAW STAR has that too, but it also has a large amount of tongue-in-cheek humor, characters that are just a little different, and nicely detailed art. Some really great graphics here! These Manga are fantastic stories and perfect sources of unique anime clipart! Unless stated as new, most are used, but in Excellent condition, Near Mint!. I see NO signs of rips, tears, dogears, or water damage at all! We provide Prompt Shipping and careful wrapping. Standard Shipping has been taking 2-4 Weeks. Expedited Shipping has been taking 7-14 days. We will combine orders to save on shipping costs. I have quoted the standard SAL (International Air Service 2-4 Weeks) and expedited AIR (similar to Global Priority 7-14 days). If you MUST have your package faster, you may also request the more expensive EMS (Global Express 1 Week or less). If you really want to save on postage, feel free to ask for the MUCH cheaper MEDIA RATE postage. Most packages can be shipped via media rate for less than 5-10. However, you must agree to the very slow delivery time (6-8 Weeks or more). Visit our Store for more great items! Unless specifically stated as English or Bilingual, all of our books are the original Japanese versions. Many are fine, first edition prints! Many of our books have English translations available. A few of these translations are text files, formatted to follow the books, page-by-page. However, Most of these translations are high quality scans of the original books, with English text over-writing the original Japanese Kanji. If you request the translations, we will provide them via email or CD-ROM depending on the file sizes. Powered by Turbo Lister The free listing tool.
