This week brings pitches for dungeon treks, alien bug raids, and a nightmare long thought over. Plus Silent Hills, BlazBlue, and the results of an anime-editing contest!

As previously noted this episode was deleted from CN's OS line up. After seeing it now I know why. For the benefit of those who are unlikely to get the video and see it for themselves I have included a brief summary here.

From the Editor:
Well, that's it. All of Toonami's edits of Outlaw Star in all their glory... or lack thereof. As previously mentioned, Toonami re-ran Outlaw Star a second time subsequent to when this list was made. The reruns had a few more things edited out, which might have actually been an improvement since it made the show a bit more consistent.
The frequency of Kyle Pope's edit list will be dictated by the frequency of edited Anime on TV, so right now there is no telling exactly when the next installment will be.
