Odin: Koshi Hobune Staraito (1986) It is the year 2099, and mankind has taken great advances in its development of space travel: people sail through space in ships powered by photon-laser engines, and parts of the solar system have been colonized. The newly-built space schooner the Starlight is launched on a maiden voyage to venture beyond the boundaries of the system. The ship comes across a wrecked spacecraft, holding one lone member: a mysterious young woman named Sara Cyanbaker. The crew later discovers a series of artifacts on a lonely asteroid, which when examined, point to an ancient Norwegian mariner's folk song which mentions the Norse god Odin. Sara starts to have strange dreams of a place called Odin; with these facts, the crew deduces that Odin may actually exist as a planet, the place of paradise that is so often spoken of in mythology. And so a perilous journey begins towards the Canopus system in search of the planet Odin, which could be the possible cradle of life in the universe...

More Movie Taglines:
  • Legends once told of a paradise destroyed by a kingdom of fire.
  • Through the vast oceans of space the journey towards the legendary star of Odin begins.
Movie Trivia:
  • The crew searches for the planet Odin, and battles the cosmic entity Asgard. These names have been exchanged: in Norse mythology, Odin was a divine being and Asgard was the home of the gods.
  • This movie was released in America by U.S. Manga Corps in both an uncut subtitled format, and a English-dubbed format (seen on IMDb as Odin: Photon Space Sailor Starlight (1986) (V)). The original uncut version runs 135 minutes, but the English dub, which was edited for length purposes, runs only 90 minutes. This film thus has the distinction of perhaps being the anime movie which suffered the harshest editing for length in its English release.
  • The film is widely criticized by both critics and mainstream fans as being a transparent copy of Yoshinobu Nishizaki's more successful series "Uch senkan Yamato" (1974) (the crew of a starship go in search of a world).
  • The film was originally to be the first in a trilogy, but after its disappointing box-office performance the idea was cancelled.
