    Welcome, Horsepineapple89! That's very interesting and you might be more of a veteran than everyone else here. Unless you simply got the date wrong, I've deduced that you must have been living in Japan or China at that time. I looked into the release dates of the German, Italian and Spanish manga and it appears they were all released in 1999. It's also unlikely that others across the globe could have got a subtitled Outlaw Star anime in 1998 because it only finished its broadcast in Japan in June 1998 (wow, happy 20th anniversary for the final episode) and people weren't fast enough back then to fan-translate an anime in a short space of time. I'm not sure when the Chinese manga was released as there doesn't seem to be a date on the manga itself. I just wish Takehiko Ito had timestamped his old news updates.

    Of course, the anime wasn't broadcast in the USA or other English countries until 2001! (And sadly never received a manga translation either.)

    Jim: "How do you know?"
    Gene: "I don't!"
    Jim: "I knew it."
    Gene: "That's okay. There's a first time for everything!"

    Now that you mention the manga translations Mantis, i recall that some time ago i paid a translator (not freelance, he really works as a Japanese - English translator full-time) to translate a few chapters of the manga beyond what I could find scanlated online. I'll need to find some way to share one of these days and have him do a few more chapters.

    Also, welcome to the boards, horsepineapple89!
