While it was by far not magnificent in terms of its appearance or in terms of a number of those other elements that we greatly take for advantage from the more recent anime with improved graphics and sound, this older "space drama" drew me in from the first episode, beguiling me with its interesting story and interesting cinematography and storytelling. It's hard-pressed to find an anime like Seikai no Monshou, with its same blend of both serious and entertaining drama and dialogue, and its very intense space battle action scenes.

Overview: Crest of the Stars is by far one of my all time favorite anime. That said it is not for everyone. The show is set far into the future were humans have colonized the entire galaxy. The two main characters Jinto and Lafiel are well developed and entertaining to watch. If there is a down side to this show it is that it is rather slow paced, and involves a great deal of dialog. Although there are action scenes in the show, this is not for people with short attention spans.

Even though these appear - superficially - to be totally different (furry love vs. elf love; trading/economics vs. intergalactic warfare), you'd have to blind AND somewhat stupid to watch these two and not link them.

For starters, anyone watching at length will only be in it for the SLOWLY developing romance between a human and his nonhuman, can-live-for-100s-of-years life partner. A HUGE amount of time gets put into complicated subplots, for sure, but that's all decoration. What people want is for the leads to take their relationships forward beyond unsure friendship/lovers territory... which, of course, NEVER SODDING WELL HAPPENS since interest would fade once the deed is done. No sexy-time here!

Both Lafiel (CotS) and Howo (S&W) are characterised by a strong sense of pride and some light tsundere 'won't be totally honest' traits. With Howo her pride over her tail is used more for laughs, where as the only similar scenes in CotS are those relating to Lafiel's fondness of her blue hair. And Lafiel has a more... socially awkward edge to her pride as an Abh, compared with Howo's gained-over-100s-of-years witty banter, but their interactions with their FAR MORE normal male counterparts does still make their similarities readily apparent.

One key divide between the two series is which character is the driving force. In S&W, Howo uses her intellect to assist Lawrence (S&W male lead) with his trading business ventures as they traverse together. In CotS - and even more so in BotS - Lafiel leads the way on her war-filled path to becoming Empress of the Abh empire--Jinto (CotS male lead) openly admitting he just wants to be with Lafiel, having no goal of his own; even getting teased about it by Lafiel. But, regardless: the true shining lights in the series are their heroines. Like the male leads, the viewer can't help but be dazzled by them in the exact same way.

Also: although the C/BotS anime doesn't go into it (though the novels apparently do), the differences between life expectancy of humans/Abh and the problem of having children are sure to link CotS with S&W in some form.
Both space operas with lots of politics.
