Mister is a "coyote" or space faring outlaw who has been sitting in prison for a year for a traffic offense. Ten days from release, he breaks out with the help of his old partners Bishop and Katana.

Let's start off by saying that the first episode of this show was absolutely brilliant. It had everything: an engaging setting, intriguing plot, intelligent (if slightly gluttonous) protagonist, spunky sidekick, and killer robot maids. The animation was wonderfully done, and the story's pace was smooth and quick. By the time the first episode ended, I was SALIVATING for more.

... and then, I watched the second episode. Everything fell apart after that.

The worst mistake the show made, in my opinion, was switching protagonists from the space detective Angelica to the space pirate/bandit/whatever Mister. If they had stuck with the former, then the show would have stayed read more

Coyote Ragtime Show is about a group of Space pirates known as "Coyote's" who are on a quest to find a treasure. Simple enough right? Wrong! On top of that you have galactic federations in the middle of a planet-destroying war, a group of 12 psychotic and robotic killer maids hunting the Coyotes and as many plot twists as George Bushes presidency, all this packed in to 12 explosive episodes!

Story- The main story kicks off in the very first couple of episodes without needing too much build up where we see ragged coyote "Mister" and his crew escape from a space prison and set off read more

Ah, the Coyote Ragtime Show. Under-rated, and in my opinion, a masterpiece.

I first saw this on one of the only anime stations we have over here. I guess at first the idea of it may not be appealing, I almost changed channel. But, seeing as nothing else was on, I continued to watch it. This defines an anime that is a diamond in the rough.

I won't repeat the summary, I'm sure you can all read. I remember haggling with my parents on ways for them to let me watch this, it was funny, and 8/10 times I failed miserably. Cruel folks. Well, they're read more

I like anime for covering story types we just don't see in live action or much in western animation. However, this one covered some things so well I might as well have been reading TV Tropes.

Our lead is a criminal with a heart of gold who always succeeds at the big action, but also has time to raise his dead buddy's daughter. He's assisted by Glasses Guy, Skilled Pilot, Dead Buddy's Daughter, and Old Rival. Their ultimate goal is to get the treasure left behind by Dead Buddy, but they keep getting stopped by Crazy Woman and her twelve gothloli robot daughters named after the read more

Anime: Cowboy Bebop
Both series are influenced to a certain extent by music, specifically types of jazz. Bebop in Cowboy Bebop and Ragtime in Coyote Ragtime Show; so they share the same kind of musical vibe. Both series have a very sci-fi western feel and both are set in an alternate reality where space travel is both possible and used by the every day man. The characters in both series are also fairly similar; the main gang in Cowboy Bebop are bounty hunters and the main gang in Coyote Ragtime Show are treasure hunters (quite like pirates). Both series have episodes set in space and other episodes set  read more

Anime: Seihou Bukyou Outlaw Star
Almost the same setup and story goal. They are both about a crew going through space and looking for a certain location to fulfill a life long goals.

Anime: Zone of the Enders: Dolores, I
Gives a similar feeling as the main cast are wanted through the series of the anime.

Some other similar things:
*One old guy as a main character.
*Travel between planets.
*Family related things.

I would say Zone of the Enders is better and if you liked Coyote then I think you will like it more and maybe Coyote if you liked ZOE.

Anime: Michiko to Hatchin
Both contain occasional fast paced action, both are more modern/alternative world western style stories with bank roberies, riding into sunsets, standoffs, "sheriff" (detective) chasing after a criminal.

Anime: Trigun
CRS is more space-oriented than Trigun but both anime have a strong focus on comedy and both have a main antagonist with a past connected to the protagonist. Both anime have great guitar-oriented soundtracks, Trigun having a acoustic guitar one and CRs having an electric guitar one.

Anime: Innocent Venus
In both series, there's science fiction theme that takes place in a world that has technology beyond our standards. Then, there's the main male protagonist who accompanies a girl in such a world.

The antagonists in both series have their own ambitions and seeks nothing more to achieve it. There's also the themes of space pirates that deals with the underground societies.

The soundtrack in both series are also noticeable and while not standing out too much reflects its atmosphere and science fiction backgrounds.
