Outlaw Star is an anime drama series about two space pirates who find themselves in the possession of a highly advanced spacecraft as well as a bio-android named Melfina. Though the series is largely episodic, at the heart of the plot is a desire to find the Galactic Layline, a hidden treasure somewhere in the galaxy.

The series premiered on TV Tokyo in 1998 and was later licensed by Bandai Entertainment and ZRO Limit Productions for the production of an English dub that debuted in 2001. The series is notable for being an anime series that premiered on Toonami: Midnight Run, a late-night adult oriented cartoon block on Cartoon Network that predated Adult Swim. The series, like Cowboy Bebop, was later run on the new network after it was established.
