Coyote Ragtime Show

Coyote Ragtime Show

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.

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.

Gundam Wing

Gundam Wing

The year is After Colony 195, and mankind is in the midst of a seemingly endless ongoing war between the Space Colonies and the ones who created them: the people of Earth. To give the Colonies the advantage, five mobile suits called Gundams were created. Equipped with enhanced technology and extremely talented young pilots, these are the ultimate machines of war. While Relena Peacecraft pleads for peace, Heero Yui leads the Gundams into the battle with Earth to attain it. As their personalities and visions clash, their goal is the same: freedom for all and peace at last.

Although Outlaw Star has much more comedy, both of the stories are based around battle scenes and some sort of mechas and a subtle love story in the background.

KittyEmperor

Both series strongest point is the fighting involved in each series.  While Gundam Wing is more mecha and Outlaw Star is more spaceship/gunfights the highlight of each series is the fighting that goes on in the series.  Both also feature slight romances between the lead male and lead female and while it either ever says start out that this character likes that character it leaves little doubt in the viewers mind.  Also both are made by Sunrise so there's that.

Irresponsible Captain Tylor

Irresponsible Captain Tylor

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.

Sphinx

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.

chii

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.

Lost Universe

Lost Universe

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.

Halex

These two are set in a similar universe but Lost Universe is a lot more lighter than Outlaw Star.
