    I'm sure that technological mind invasion of Melfina's consciousness/domain was creepy then and it feels even creepier now. On a lighter note, Aisha continues to be entertaining, and I like Lenore Zann in the role. She sounds more distinct than most female anime characters I hear today.

    I thought that this episode was pretty good. The first half being told out of order was kind of confusing. I'm not sure why they setup the episode like that when they could have covered the events in order. It's not like they didn't have a good hook with Harry's message to Gene. The mysterious man who kept repeating himself was especially strange and confusing, but that will probably come back up in the future. The fight itself was pretty good. There was some good tension and you don't see a ship using hands to fire its own gun too often. Aisha and Gene will probably continue to clash throughout the series, but she did provide a good idea for Gene. They were able to get ahead of Harry with having a someone acting as their recorder rather than sending in another machine.

    Gene's skills once he got on board the ship was pretty good. I didn't think he'd get much information from Harry and he did look too young to be involved with what happened to Gene's father too. Invading Melfina's mind was extremely creepy. He fortunately didn't seem to do anything to affect her or the ship, but the way it was presented was really unsettling. They couldn't get much answers, but I'm sure that they'll get more attention from the McDougal brothers in the future. Overall, it was a pretty good episode.

    Welcome back to the wubbulous world of Outlaw Star!

    Well, at this point, our crew is more or less fully assembled, so let's review in case you spent last week in a tryptophan-induced coma:

    [​IMG]

    Gene Starwind (center), founder and co-owner of Starwind and Hawking Enterprises and captain of the highly-advanced grappler ship XGP-15AII (now known as the Outlaw Star). Aspiring businessman, bounty hunter, slacker, space orphan, occasional pervert. Knows his way around a caster shell.

    Jim Hawking (lower right), Gene's young business partner; a child prodigy, financial consultant, and skilled mechanic. The Kiyo to Gene's Miho; always ready to back him up in a fight, but usually calls him out on his recklessness or bails him out whenever he gets in over his head.

    Melfina (leftmost), a self-conscious bio-android girl who came with the Outlaw Star. A maternal figure within the group; displays a sense of self-awareness uncommon to an artificial being and currently trying to figure out certain questions regarding the purpose to her existence. Serves as the ship's cook and navigator.

    "Twilight" Suzuka (to Gene's left), a notorious lady samurai assassin known for using a wooden sword and attacking targets at sunsets. Initially attacked Gene while attempting to dispatch one of his business liaisons; now travelling with him for personal interests as well as reasons yet to be disclosed.

    Aisha Clan-Clan (to Gene's right), resident officer of the Empire of Ctarl-Ctarl, a proud feline-humanoid race known for superhuman strength and incredible stamina. Currently assigned to research information on the legendary and mysterious Galactic Leyline; currently travelling with Gene and company, as they her only lead.

    Are we all on the same page? Good.

    Tonight starts the part of the show set on Heiphong, as Gene, his business venture and his newly-acquired companions settle in to their new location. Most of the next few episodes are one-off stories, including this week's.

    And I'm not going to lie - this one is a little weird on the surface.

    Episode 13: "Advance Guard from Another World"

    Previously on Outlaw Star, Harry MacDougall was beaten but not before being a....character to say the least.

    Tonight, Melfina is going to achieve a CMOA tonight.

    A race called the Sith and they're bad guys? What a surprise.

    Fortunately, we don't have to deal with them at all, at least from what I tell.

    "One lesson learned from love can be applied here: encounters are always abrupt." Is he talking about meet-cutes?

    Six alien races. And so far we've only met two.

    Admiral Ackbar?

    Cactus...

    Love the flower motif.

    What do you expect from Craigslist?

    Apparently they don't do pest control.

    How big of a job are you looking for?

    What kind of guy turns down ice cream?

    Is he a descendant of Foghorn Leghorn?

    How does ice cream taste average?

    Cactus...

    Ice cream...bugs...cacti...it all seems connected somehow.

    I think she's on her way to get the monster.
