    Would you ever watch...

    Would you ever watch the story prior to or after Outlaw Star of an individual character?

    By this I mean, if they were to take one of the main say 5 characters and gave them their own 13 episode anime series that takes place before or after the main series, would it be something you would be interested in... And if so, of which character?

    To my knowledge, this has not been done with any of them but I could be wrong.

    It has sort of been done. It's not one of the main 5, but Angel Links is a spin-off/sequel that follows Meifon Li, whose crew consists of some minor characters that appeared in the OLS anime.

    I'd much rather watch an OLS-specific one as you described. Either Aisha or Melfina would be my preferred character. This hasn't been done yet in anime form, but if you count the doujinshi, magazines, interviews, manga extras there are some (very brief) things like what you are outlining.

    I wouldn’t mind seeing a episode or two about the making of melfina and the XGP.

    How Jim and Gene met would be another good one.

    Sukuza’s origins too. She is painted as a total bad ass but sits around drinking tea most of the time. I’d like to see how she got her rep.

    I couldn’t watch a whole series or multiple episodes on Aisha. I think her voice would annoy me to much.

    I’m not sure if the magazines, interviews, magna. Etc cover these things....but I’d love to see it on screen.

    Yes they do! Well, some of the ones you listed. Namely:

    >Sukuza’s origins too. She is painted as a total bad ass but sits around drinking tea most of the time. I’d like to see how she got her rep.
    >How Jim and Gene met would be another good one.

    I know that these two are covered. Gene & Jim in the manga itself, while Suzu's background is more "told" not "shown". There are these character profile pages in the manga that go into detail on each character, so we get a lot of what we know about her from there. In addition, she is featured in some doujinshi & magazines. We are far from translating every doujin, manga page, interview, concept drawing, storyboard, light novel, and piece of promotional material so who knows how much more we'll find going forward?

    Like Zemekis said, this has been done... to an extent. We learn about how Gene and Jim met up in one of the drama CD episodes. Melfina doesn't really have much of a past and her future would probably be dependent on Gene and/or Jim in a sequel. I agree that Aisha would probably just be annoying. Suzuka's story could be interesting, so for me she's a candidate, but I think if I can bend the rules a little a prequel about Hilda would be the best option. It could be about her clashes with the Kei Pirates, what got her involved with them and how they cut off her arm, her connections with Swanzo and McCoy, and of course an extended look at the events directly leading to Outlaw Star. (Hilda's fight in Sentinel's space, etc.) Maybe she was only a main character for four episodes, but when you consider she's still a popular fan favourite despite the shorter screen-time, it's easy to see why a lot of people would enjoy a Hilda prequel and there's a lot more to work with.
    Gene: "Have faith in me guys, enjoy the ride—you're in good hands. I can handle this. I can do it!"
    Jim: "How do you know?"
    Gene: "I don't!"
    Jim: "I knew it."
    Gene: "That's okay. There's a first time for everything!"

    You can still read the document and learn about how Gene and Jim met.

    There's a preliminary PDF (or doc file) at the Leyline. It's unedited but it's still certainly good enough for a preview.
    Gene: "Have faith in me guys, enjoy the ride—you're in good hands. I can handle this. I can do it!"
    Jim: "How do you know?"

    This is on my to do list. My office is a disaster at the moment and I can’t load the doc file on my phone.

    I’ll do this later today if I have time!
