Outlaw Star (TV)

In ep. 23 'Hot Springs Planet Tenrei', the following characters appear: Urt, Ark, and Handull. If you had been a fan of the Future Retro Hero Story Mangas by Takehiko Ito, you would have know that those three head priests showed up often to be a pain to Juji's crew. So it makes no surprise that they show up in FRHS's spin-off series Outlaw Star. Also as they mention a red-haired hero near the end of the esp, they are referring to Juji Thomas Godah who could possibly be Gene's ancestor.
In the American show Firefly, when the character of River was found, naked and in a fetal position, in a cryogen unit, this was most likely an homage to Outlaw Star, where Melfina was discovered in the same manner.
During the opening of the series, if you go frame by frame right when Gene is firing his gun, you'll notice the word "Bang!" appears very briefly in the middle of the gunblast.
Fred Luo, the notoriously homosexual weapons dealer within Outlaw Star, makes a guest appearance within the first episode of the spin-off Anime, Angel Links
Outlaw Star is based on a 1997 manga series of the same name by Takehiko Ito. That series is, in turn, a spin-off of an earlier parody manga series, also by Ito, called Space Hero Tales ("Uchuu Eiyuu Monogatari," also known in English as "Future-Retro Hero Story"). The Outlaw Star anime series has its own spin-off TV series, Angel Links.
