"Cats and Girls and Spaceships" is the twentieth episode of Outlaw Star. The episode aired May 14, 1998 on TV Network in Japan and February 9, 2001 on Toonami in North America.


The Outlaw Star is attacked by a mysterious grappler ship and forced to dock at a nearby space station. While there, Jim develops a crush on a young girl named Hanmyo, unaware that she and her cats Kemi and Matta are members of the Anten Seven, and are the pilots of the ship that attacked them.


  • When Gene removes his hand from Jim's head after ruffling his hair, his bare arm can briefly be seen despite the fact he's wearing a sleeved top in the previous scene. This is most likely an oversight from the animators.
