It seems that earth is being invaded by aliens once again. By some odd stroke of luck (it is hard to say if it is good or bad) the princess Kahm takes a bizarre fancy of a young Photo Journalist Tetsuya. It seems that she intends to marry him regardless of what anyone, including Tetsuya says about it. Unfortunately for Kahm and Tetsuya there is quite a few people that have something to say about it.
I have been watching anime for quite some time and I would have to say that Outlanders is probably the worst thing I have seen in quite some time. The characters are shallow and unbelievable since they change their minds without any real provocation to do so. The main reason for this is to get Kahm and Tetsuya together without any real reason that they would feel that way. All in all it plays like a bad copy of Urusei Yatsura that manages to cut out almost all of the humor.
Outlanders was made quite some time ago giving the show slightly archaic animation. It furthers my belief that it is a rip off of Urusei Yatsura. While the animation isnít all that bad it does nothing to save the already bad story.
I found a copy of Outlanders in the used anime section of a half price books store. If I knew what I know now I would have left it there and I implore you to do the same. I give Outlanders a rating of poor.
