"The Beast Girl, Ready to Pounce!" is the fifth episode of Outlaw Star. The episode aired February 5, 1998 on Tokyo TV in Japan and January 19, 2001 on Toonami in North America.


The crew of the Outlaw Star travels back to Blue Heaven and Swanzo agrees to paint and outfit the ship with a registration ID in order to pay a past debt to Hilda. Aisha Clan-Clan, now broke and homeless, shows up and demands the coordinates of the Galactic Leyline, which Gene is unable to provide.

The crew takes Aisha out to dinner, seemingly out of pity, but after the Ctarl-Ctarl still insists on placing them under arrest, Gene ends up shooting her and leaving her with the restaurant bill. Afterwards, the group returns to the now-painted grappler ship, they discuss future dangers with Swanzo regarding the Kei Pirates before setting course for Sentinel.
