  • The only episode ever to be banned from television. And a pretty funny one as well.

    Too bad this episode was banned from tv. Despite what Adult Swim has stated you must watch this episode to avoid any confusion about the episodes 24-26. You can still watch this episode however in order to you must purchase Outlaw Star collection 3 Dvd or Outlaw Star : Complete Collection or Outlaw Star : Perfect Collection. This is the only way you can watch that episode unless you can find it online.

    Unfortunately for all of us they could not edit this episode without totally ruining the episode for television broadcast.

    If you look at the Notes that are accompanied by this particular episode you'll know why.

    Overall this is a pretty funny episode. I give it a 10 out of 10.moreless
  • If you haven't seen it, you don't know what you're missing!

    Hot springs, ancient sorcerers and exploding porn, oh my!

    Outwardly, this episode seems silly and chock full of fanservice, though most of the fanservice is aimed at male fans. But this is only the surface of the episode and there is actually quite a bit of history thrown in. Not the random filler episode that most anime have, "Hot Springs Planet Tenrei" delves into the history of castor shells and why they have all but disappeared. There is also one of the Anten Seven after them, but he's usually foiled by some extrodinary circumstance caused by Gene an company.

    I didn't see this episode until I bought the DVDs and then completely understood why it wasn't aired. However for those who were really captivated by the story of the series, this is a must see. Just make sure the kiddies aren't anywhere near the TV.moreless
  • Looking past all the \\\"Fan Service\\\" if you may call it that this episode is very good, it told you the history of the caster shells.

    This was a great episode, as one of the Anten 7 chased Gene and his crew but to no avail he always gets stopped by some uncontrollable force in some funny way. It reveals the history of the caster shells and the 3 wizards who makes them. Also how Gene gets the special shells he from them that he used in the last two episodes. Even though at first it seems this episode really doesn\\\'t have a meaning it does, which Cartoon Network either failed to see or just didn\\\'t want to go through the hassle of editing it. There also a reference to the original manga it was based off of.moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (7)

    • When Gene is playing ping pong with Urt and scores the game point, it should have actually been out instead of a point at all, because the ball is clearly shown going over the side of the table.

    • The two mountains on Tenrei represent the characters for Men (Nan) and Women (Nu).

    • Urt's camcorder counts above 60 seconds.

    • Recurring gags:
      1. Tobigera attempts to kill Gene but fails.
      2. Gene struggles to get up the Women's Mountain but triggers the snowball traps.

    • In this episode, at the tail end, one of the wizards talks about a red-headed guy. He is referring to the main character of the manga that Outlaw Star was based from, named, Future-Retro Hero Story.

    • This episode describes a bit on the history of Caster Shells. There are 20 types, and some are more powerful than others. The rarest shells are: #4, #9, and #13, which also take away the person's life force.

    • Exposure levels:
      Melfina - back (no more than usual)
      Suzuka - back (comparable to episode 6 intro but without the towel)
      Aisha - only character in entire episode that is fully exposed from the front.
      Gene - Speedo. He never gets fully naked.
      Jim - swimsuit
      other guys and girls - swimsuit, bikini, or those bandage tube-top things that wrap the chest.
      Urt - go see the episode and try not to get a nosebleed

  • QUOTES (2)

    • Jim: (after passing immigration) Immigration matters, huh
      Aisha: All we did was change clothes!

    • (Gene tumbles down the mountain into the lava hot springs where Aisha is soaking. Gene scrambles out.)
      Aisha: Now I get it. You came here all this way just to see me naked, huh?
      Gene: That's not it! I didn't come here to, uh...
      (Gene stares at the fully naked Aisha and falls in the lava.)
      Gene: HOT! HOT! HOT!
      Aisha: He's getting all worked up for this? Talk about no self-control.

  • NOTES (1)

    • Toonami cut: ENTIRE EPISODE!
      This episode never aired on Cartoon Network because it contained nudity and sexual situations. Other episodes may have revealing and suggestive parts in them, but this one goes a bit further than the rest.

      Although Cartoon Network said this episode was not important to the plot, this episode did play a major role in the series by explaining what a Caster Shell was and the details behind the rare caster shells, so those who have only seen the Cartoon Network version were left confused.
