Synopsis:

The Division of Space Piracy is most commonly known for apprehending pirates, but also for having the priciest damage control bills thanks to the destructive efforts of Lateil and his feline sidekick Apulo. When a madman named Youmei wants to take over Mars using the CAT #86 machine (by turning everyone into cats, to boot!), who better to catch the target than the duo? Along with Lagendra, a Class-A AI driven spaceship with a superiority complex, and Marsha, the team's newest detective, Apulo and Lateil must foil Youmei's evil plan before they find themselves fired -- again!

Ai City

Ai City
  • Movie (1 ep x 100 min)
  • 1986

In a dystopic and futuristic Tokyo, humanity’s genetic code has gone awry. At the forefront of the technology is Fraud, an organization conducting experiments on people such as Kei and Ai – two escaped “headmeters” with hefty psychokinetic powers. The sinister Mr. Lee wants nothing more to retrieve Ai back to his clutches, as she seemingly holds the key to immense power; Kei wants simply to keep Ai safe; and the evil Lai Lo Ching has his own master plan. Along with the help of the amnesiac headmeter K2 and a trusty sidekick, Kei must fight to protect Ai from the evils of Mr. Lee, Lai Lo Ching, and the state of the world itself!

While Enemy's the Pirates is far more slapstick and comedic than Ai City, both have a gritty and old-school feel that will interest you. Though Ai City is more serious, it still has comedic moments to break up the tension - not to mention, it's pretty bad in itself so you'd watch it for humor purposes anyways. If you liked one of these, try out the other.

Crusher Joe Movie

Crusher Joe Movie
  • Movie (1 ep x 131 min)
  • 1983

From demolition to terraforming planets, there’s nothing the mercenaries known as the Crushers can’t do -– until now. When Crusher Joe and his team arrive at the other end of a warp without their precious cargo, they find themselves on the wrong side of the law, with their license revoked. Their only hope of redemption is to find the culprits themselves, but there’s a catch: the bad guys have fled to the pirate-infested planet of Lagol! Do Joe and the gang have what it takes to find out the truth before the truth ends up killing them?

Crusher Jo and Teki wa Kaizoku are both interplanetary tales of adventure and piratic plotting, complete with laser guns, robots, and lots of explosions. While Teki wa Kaizoku is a bit more deliberately madcap, both have a good splash of humour to go along with the action, and it's gonna be a race to see who deals with their doomsday device first.

Magical Shopping Arcade Abenobashi

Magical Shopping Arcade Abenobashi

Satoshi and Arumi have been friends since early childhood, but now Arumi's family is moving to Hokkaido, deeply upsetting her long-time friend. However, when Arumi's grandfather accidentally breaks the pelican statue atop his restaurant, the duo find their world turned upside down and not quite as they left it. From a fairy tale kingdom, to kung fu China, to the prehistoric age and everything in between, Arumi and Satoshi can't quite seem to figure out where they are, or better yet, how they can manage to get home to their own Abenobashi Shoutengai!

While Abenobashi is admittedly a lot more spastic, I think you'll appreciate it if you love the random comedy aspects of The Enemy's the Pirates. With far superior animation and a fitting soundtrack, I highly think you'd enjoy Abenobashi, especially if you liked Enemy's the Pirates as well!

I definitely think the dynamic of Yougen Kaisha and Enemy's the Pirates are very slapstick and hilarious, so it seems likely that if you liked one, you'd like the other!

Sol Bianca: The Legacy

Sol Bianca: The Legacy

Armed with five female crewmembers, a full arsenal of weapons, and a holographic AI computer, the pirate ship Sol Bianca sets off across the galaxy to fight the Tres space force, save a young boy named Rim Delapaz and his civilization from destruction, and take down a universally powerful dictator Batros. All this for what? Treasure of course.

Both shows are episodic following a crew that fight together. The main difference is that Sol Bianca are the pirates and in the Enemy's the Pirates they are the law inforcers that run... i mean fly around in space to catch them. Sol Bianca has way better animation but i'm sure if you liked one you'll enjoy the other.
