Ozuma is an anime that starts with potential, unfortunately it suffers from a crippling flaw; it's just too short.

The first thing you'll notice is the very old looking character designs, this is because it is based on the unpublished script by Leiji Matsumoto from the 1980's. Some might be put off by them, especially if you have only watched anime post 2000, but I think it provides a good example of how anime has changed visually over the years, and would hope that people would not avoid the series because of the old art. The animation was of a good quality throughout the run, and read more

There are many aspects about this anime that may be off-putting, like the older style of art, the shortness of it, and the strange, future-technology vocabulary used. However, I think that all of these just add to this anime's strength. The art is a pre-2000 style, meaning slightly disproportioned heads, everybody's got the same nose, and they all have really big hair--which looks fabulous in my opinion. The music all along the anime was awesome, especially the opening song; it successfully adds suspense. And the vocabulary, I must admit was frustrating in the beginning, but you have a deeper sense of accomplishment at the end read more

Recommendations

Rouges of the sea of space and rouges of the sea of sands. Both are also sci-fi.
A number of similarities exist. Fam hunts Skyfish, and Sam hunts sand whales, both of which use the term "kujira" for "whale" in the original Japanese. Both characters are somewhat carefree and rescue a princess, drawing them into a greater conflict. In both worlds, ships use the skies and the ground as their "ocean".

Opening Theme

"Neverland" by F.T. Island

Ending Theme

"Utagoe (ウタゴエ)" by Minami Kizuki
