Ban Midou and Ginji Amano are the Get Backers. With a 99 percent success rate in returning lost or stolen property to its original owners, they will do anything for the right price. Midou and Ginji often get hired for seemingly ordinary jobs that turn out to be more difficult than they appear; and whether it’s finding a doll for a girl, retrieving a stolen rare violin or getting mixed up with the mob, they have many adventures with plenty of petty squabbles along the way!
The buisness operated by gene and by the getbackers, while different in priciple, ends up being the same in practice.. generally to go beat up someone or track something down or do something impossible for some client. Personally i think gene is a better character, but the better visuals of getbackers balances this out
They both are about a couple of funny people that never have money and when they get money it goes to there debt. There full of comedy and action.If you like Outlaw Star you are going to like Get Backers to.
When Kane Blueriver, Milly, and Canal seek out wealth aboard the star ship Sword Breaker, many mishaps will ensue, as these trouble contracters take on bounty cases across the universe. That is, until Kane discovers the secret behind his grandmother's ship and the ever expanding threat of Nightmare, an evil crime syndicate that wants to rule the universe.
I think that Lost Universe is probably the closest thing you can find to Outlaw Star. With mysterious ships, and a great entity trying to take over the universe, it's easy to get these two confused.
These two are set in a similar universe but Lost Universe is a lot more lighter than Outlaw Star.
Tenchi Universe is a twisted continuation of the original Tenchi series. Through a different set of circumstances, Tenchi Masaki meets up with characters such as Space Pirates and Galactic Princesses. Tenchi is then taken on an emotional roller coaster ride, as well as a space epic, as he discovers new things about his new friends, himself, and his destiny.
You have a couple of guys, and a bunch of women, racing around the universe in their spaceship, stopping in at plenty of interesting places, and getting in plenty of interesting fights, both in space and melee. You'll find some of the characters seem familiar, and both series have the right blend of humor and seriousness that'll keep you glued to the screen up through the last episode.
Both are set in an interesting space journey and mix the right amount of comedy and seriousness.
The future of humanity is in peril, as they are confronted with the threat of an intergalactic clash with a warrior-like alien race, and the only one who can save them is... Captain Tylor?! Join a crew of misfits and rejects including an alcoholic doctor, a gorgeous nurse, an anal-retentive commander and a bunch of really stupid marines as they try to make it out in space and to discover whether their captain is a misunderstood genius or a total moron like he seems to be.
They're both relatively light but not brainless action and adventure through space sorts of series. Tylor hooks you into the characters a bit more, but if you had fun watching one, they're similar enough that you'd probably enjoy the other, too.
If adventuring around space is your thing these 2 shows are for you. Granted their plots are pretty different Tylor being military based and Outlaw Star being about mercenaries, but both shows revolve around a crew that will go through great lengths to achieve their goals with some great comedy along the way. Check either title out if you liked the other.
Androids and treasure and pirates, oh my! When the space pirate (aka “Coyote”) Bruce was killed, he left behind a legacy of the greatest heist ever known, and only one person knows how to find it. His daughter just wants her inheritance; the Coyote Mister just wants his cut; a detective wants to finally capture the bad guy; and the nefarious Madame Marciano and her android assault force are just out for blood. Can Bruce’s treasure be found, or will the authorities and bounty hunters steal the show?
Coyote Ragtime Show and Outlaw Star are space age animes with space ship chases, and fights, also both contain normal gun fights. Both Mister and Gene do jail time, but still have people who care about them. Both parties go to space in search of something and run from the law.
Looking for a wild space adventure? When I think Outlaw Star and Coyote Ragtime Show, I'm also reminded of Treasure Planet (based off Treasure Island). Both these shows are about crews of space outlaws that are searching for mysterious treasure and or a hidden past and have quite a bit of action in both. Outlaw Star has a deeper plot to it and the heros have a bit more depth to them, while Coyote Ragtime Show is a somewhat outrageous action show with things like killer lolita androids.
