Anime Limited has posted the following message on its facebook page regarding its release of Outlaw Star.
Many of you have been asking us 'What is the deal with Outlaw Star? Is it still coming out?' To which I say a firm: Definitely! We have, however, run into some issues when we QC'd the series.
The issue we hit when we were in QC mode was a gap in the audio and video in one of the episodes. We flagged that up and are still waiting on a patch to rectify this problem. Once we get the patch we'll do our darnedest to get it out as soon as possible. We will need a few weeks wiggle room to fix the errors, QC the disc and send it for production.
The Tale of the Beleaguered Outlaw Star Release continues to roll on but the end is very much in sight. Once again, we just can't, in good faith, release a product without it being as perfect as we can get it.
We hope you understand our position and we're so sorry that you've had to wait as long as you have for this release. It'll so be worth it though! I've QC'd it myself and the difference in quality from the previous release is outstanding. Thank you all so much for your patience!
The space comedy-adventure series ran for 26 episodes in 1998, produced by Morning Star Studios. It was directed by Mitsuru Hongo (Shamanic Princess, Sakura Wars: The Movie, Reideen) and features mecha designs by veterans Junya Ishigaki (Macross Frontier, Mobile Suilt Gundam Wing, Angelic Layer) and Shoji Kawamori (Macross Plus, Eureka 7, Super Dimension Fortress Macross).
