Outlaw Star (partially lost Toonami edit of anime; 2001)

(Redirected from Outlaw Star (Partially Lost Toonami Edit of Anime; 2001))

In 2001, an edited version of the anime Outlaw Star was broadcast on the American Cartoon Network. The show had new lines recorded and footage digitally edited in order for the show to receive a "TV-Y7" rating.

While the majority of Toonami's edited versions such as Blue Submarine No. 6, Gundam Wing, Yu Yu Hakusho and Tenchi Muyo! were released in edited formats on home video, this edited version was never officially released on VHS or DVD for unknown reasons, leaving it lost to time. One possible reason for this may be because of errors in editing that occurred during the initial run, such as the word 'bastard' slipping through in one episode.

There have however been reports of people receiving the Toonami edited version on bootleg DVDs, as well as the edited dub of the episode "Maze of Despair" playing as part of the Toonami April Fools event on Adult Swim on April 1, 2012. Another episode was found via a recording on the Internet Archive.

Used to have all of this recorded on VHS tape. Used the 6-hour version to save space. Gave all my old tapes away in a Goodwill binge about 3 years back, seeing how I don't even have a working VHS player anymore.

It's not really worth looking for, though I did have one of the two times Gene Starwind's utterance of "bastard!" escaped censoring.

I have a few episodes of Outlaw Star as they aired on Toonami during their first run. I may upload them to Vimeo if the demand is high
