    I suppose an introduction is in order

    Hey everybody, even though you will be shocked when I say this, I am not actually Gene Starwind. Suprised? I know!

    Actually, the name is Jordan, but on the forums/chat/etc. you can call me Gene or Jordan, doesn't matter to me. I'm 20 years old and been loving Outlaw Star ever since it first aired on Toonami around the age of 9-10 for me.

    Still trying to collect all the goodies and I do have physical copies of the three Outlaw Star Mangas. So if anybody knows how to read/write/speak Japanese, please contact me through private messages if you are willing/able to take the amazing, yet difficult task of translating them from Japanese, to English.

    My main goal on these forums are simple... To try to be the first person who has an actual accurate translation of the Outlaw Star Mangas from the original Japanese text to English and to be able to share with other fellow Outlaw Star fans the original story that sparked the Anime that we came to know and love. And to also keep in contact with other Outlaw Star fans and to discuss almost anything really, whether it pertains to Outlaw Star or not. I sound like I am trying to do Mantis' job

    But I check this site regularly now, almost everyday, just to see if anything new comes around, whether it is news on a sequel (damn you Mantis), products and how to obtain them, or to simply just talk about the story and ideas/views on it.

    Anywho, I hope that this site stays up for a long time and I hope you stay here as well. The internet wasn't all too accessible to people during the time Outlaw Star originally came and since then every single site that really has been up to support the anime has perished. Hopefully this site sticks through and maybe, just maybe, something good with come out of the end of our efforts. Whether it be a continuation of the story in spirit or an accurate English translation of the Manga, hopefully we can do our best to really and honestly do what no other fan has done before!

    So....with that said.....

    LET'S GO!!!!!

    Nice intro.

    RE: I suppose an introduction is in order

    It's nice to see an introductory thread from you. I must say, I was gravely disappointed when I learned that you actually... aren't Gene Starwind?! I was trying to contain my excitement of actually talking to the man himself, seeing the Outlaw Star up close, saying hello to Gilliam, and then having a flirty chat with Melfina—probably only to be sucker punched by Gene. Oh, well...

    Don't worry about doing my job for me. In fact, be my guest. I've got so many Outlaw Star projects I either need to work on, or am currently juggling, including the site itself and its many incomplete sections. A bit of weight off my shoulders would certainly help since I was also thinking of a manga translation. So, by all means, do what you need to do and you can always let me know if you need any kind of assistance.

    You also needn't worry about the site's future. Not any time soon anyway, or for as many years as I can keep trying. Outlaws never go down easy. Things were probably a bit better during January and February as far as activity went. I had put a great amount of effort into marketing the site, and whilst it obviously didn't make the site very popular, it did help me find a good number of great members. Since my university's current semester is almost over, you can rest assured that I'll be doing a damn lot to get the word out soon enough, as well as adding more content to the site which is really what brings users here in the first place.

    RE: I suppose an introduction is in order

    Thanks guys, and sorry to disappoint you Mantis, I wish I was him as well

    That's right, Outlaws NEVER go down easy, and I promise everyone here that as long as I have the desire and drive to get these translations to everyone, I will NOT give up on you, failure is NOT an option!

    It's corny sounding but I really do feel like we might be able to make a breakthrough for the English speaking/reading fans of Outlaw Star such as ourselves!

    I never heard or recalled ANYONE ever attempting to do it after the first guy who translated the first volume and stopped, so I think we need to pick up the pieces and move forward. Going to take an all out effort, but the product will be worth it.

    Corny or not, we can do it. I feel it's an act of justice to bring such an important piece of the franchise to all English-speaking fans. A duty, in a way. I'm sure we'd be able to even find someone who'd do it for free if they saw how passionate we are about it. Here's hoping.

    RE: I suppose an introduction is in order

    I'm hoping too. And if I can find that one girl I knew who was studying to read/write/speak Japanese, I would be willing to PAY her for doing the translations. It means that much to me.

    RE: I suppose an introduction is in order

    Mind if I call you GJ?

    Great intro. Not to mention the surprising first post you made about translating manga. I can't wait to see that take off.
    The hilarity of the Chat Room:
    (01:14:54) Somasol: also, don't forget to hit the logout button. sometimes you'll see people in chat but they'll disappear the instant you enter.
    (01:15:32) Somasol: you'll be going "FFFFFFFFFFFFFFFUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU?UUUUUUUUU" when that happens.
    (01:15:46) Somasol: anyway, g'night!
    (01:15:47) ChatBot: Somasol logs out of the Chat.
    (02:20:39) ChatBot: MajinCooler27 logs into the Chat.
    (02:20:42) ChatBot: Hannah has been logged out (Timeout).
    (02:21:11) MajinCooler27: FFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU?UUUUUUUUU
    (05:06:24) ChatBot: MajinCooler27 logs out of the Chat.
    (07:30:03) ChatBot: MajinCooler27 logs into the Chat.
    (16:23:48 ) ChatBot: Somasol logs into the Chat.
    (16:24:07) Somasol: LOL.

    Not at all Somasol, it all works to me.

    And yeah, I definitely want to give us fans what we never got from Takehiko Ito and the companies. I love them for making Outlaw Star, I just wished they did more for us English speaking fans.

    It was like they were thinking, "Oh, hey everybody, we're going to show you an awesome Anime, but only make one season of it and neglect to translate the Manga in english instead of making us happy."

    We'll show them!
