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The first thing you'll notice is the very old looking character designs, this is because it is based on the unpublished script by Leiji Matsumoto from the 1980's. Some might be put off by them, especially if you have only watched anime post 2000, but I think it provides a good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

First of all, I feel I should remind any reader that this anime is by Leiji Matsumoto... that's the same guy that did the Harlock Saga if that name drew a blank for you. So, if you like his stuff, you will like this anime. For me, he has been hit-or-miss, so we shall see.

Story AND characters, there are many elements of a typical Leiji Matsumoto storyline. We have a near ruined, desert-like landscape, intrepid, young hero with scruffy hair, lovely, delicate-looking, young woman in danger, spunky but still pretty girl, Lady captain of the "good" ship that looks completely like all the other read more

Also being labeled as Ozma. It's created by Matsumoto Leiji (the creator of Space Battleship Yamato) and directed by Takahashi Ryosuke who created Armoured Trooper Votoms. The story is a bit cliche to me. Takes place in a world where almost everything has turned into a dessert, a fateful encounter happened between a boy, Sam with a girl, Maya. Maya, who appears to be an important person, was chased by Theseus, a cloned army of the government. Sam saves Maya and brings her to his ship. Theseus army then begins the chase.... Does anyone else expect a pair of droids or a Yoda character to read more

Well one of the first animes I was curious about for spring has launched it's first episode. The story evolves around a guy named Sam who seems to be searching for a creature called ''OZUMA'' but on his travels he sees a girl being attacked. Then it goes like the well known ''guy saves girl from bad guys'' thing. As far as the rest is concerned it's not that special and the story so far isn't anything that interesting yet.

What I do would like to talk about are some of the charachters, For instance the main charachter Sam Coin. Now for all of u that read more

Anime: Last Exile: Ginyoku no Fam
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".

Anime: Wolf's Rain
Two similar post-apocalyptic worlds, and both involve a princess-like girl, whom our hero must save, so that in the end she can... Well, see for yourself!

Anime: Space Pirate Captain Herlock: Outside Legend - The Endless Odyssey
Same creator, and someone with knowledge of one will recognize the art style of the other. Ozuma really feels like Captain Harlock but in a desert, instead of space and with a female commander. However, they aren't reiterations of each other, despite the incredible similarities and both are unique. Ozuma is also a bit more light-hearted and has more animated/emotional characters, whereas the characters in Harlock can sometimes feel static and lacking in personality, development or motive.  
reportRecommended by noirgrimoir
Anime: Last Exile
Similar series, featuring airships and pirates, however Ozuma takes place in a desert environment. Last Exile is probably the superior, but both are Science Fiction futures with mysterious girls and a Harlock-esque pirate-like captain and spunky young male lead.

Anime: Erementar Gerad
Space pirates and sci-fi action are themes both present in these two anime(s). Additionally, there is comedy, action, great soundtrack, and inklings of romance in Ozuma. (more so in Elemental Gelade). The mystery involved in both of these series are also present as revelations are made and plot holes are formed.

Anime: Odin: Koushi Hansen Starlight
The resemblance is given in the rescued girls, because in both animes are a girl who must save or cure but then realize that it's more than that. In Ozuma because Maya is important for being an 'original' able to call to Ozma, while Odin is Queen Sara is searching the Odin planet.
Upon meeting these girls the story of his rescuers change and undertake new goals.
