"Advance Guard from Another World" is the thirteenth episode in the Outlaw Star series. It first aired April 2, 1998 on TV Network in Japan and January 31, 2001 on Toonami in North America.


Gene and Jim set up a business on Heifong, and the crew members take on various jobs around the city, which all come together in a confrontation with a mind-controlling cactus and its giant insect servant.


  • Gene's coffee mug has "Made in Locust" inscribed on the bottom, as seen when he takes a drink from it and throws it at Gilliam.
  • The suit Gene wears to his date shares a similar colour palette to the suit Cowboy Bebop protagonist, Spike Spiegel, wears.
  • Several references to Outlaw Star's contemporary anime, Trigun, can be found within this episode.
  1. Along with Spike Spiegel, Gene's suit is also similar to Nicholas D. Wolfwood.
  2. Spoiler: Plants controlling humans--an ability given to Legato Bluesummers from Knives when Knives engrafted his arm to Legato. Both Knives and Vash are considered plants in their anime and superior beings.
  3. At the end of the episode, Suzuka makes a mention of a quick-draw tournament with cash as the ultimate prize. This could possibly be alluding to the Trigun episode, Quick Draw.
