They are both set in space and both deal with crime and adventure. Also the animation style is similar.
Space cowboys anyone? Although at heart these two anime are completely different, they both have themes involving space, bounty hunting and drifting along in life.
Fun to watch, adventurous space headhunters anime . Can't beat Cowboy Bebop , but very entertaining =P
I feel as if these two anime are very simular. Mainly because its about the world in the future. Spaceships etc. The other reason would partically be because there both quite serious anime while having mild humour bits through the series. The main character in both series also have very simular personalitys being very good fighters while having a rather laid-back attituted. If you liked either of these animes i'd recommend watching the other.
Both are in a sense space vigilantees who refuse to coform by the world's standards; but instead find their own way. Both shows also offer the establishment of comfortable life on other planets. Infact, I have never met anyone that saw Cowboy Bebop that didn't like Outlaw Star or vice-versa.
Both share the genre of sci-fi. The comedic appeals are evident in both shows and the characters make the plot and action all lively.
Both of these anime are set in a sci-fi universe and they each have an adventurous feel to them. Although, Cowboy Bebop has a slightly more gritty flavor to it than Outlaw Star does. The two series each have their own memorable characters and in the end most people that enjoy one would probably like the other.
They both have a similar cast of characters such as Gene and Spike being the main characters, Jim and Aisha forming a mixture of Ed while Suzuka resembles the personality of Faye.
Their mech action is alot alike whether it be the characters are using guns and swords or fighting in spacecrafts.
They both originally aired in 1998.
And the two of these shows are seinen, targeted towards the older viewers.
like gun blazing bounty hunters in space? Not many old school animes can hold a candle to something like cowboy bebop but this is very similar and surprisingly very very good as well.
A grand mix of the freelancer attitude, the sense of adventure, the comedy and shear awe of space travel.

Both cover a similar topic of a lone bounty-hunter with a small crew iin space, trying to make a buck where ever they can. Both start out this just one episode stories, but soon spread into the main story arc.
Both have stellar bounty hunters, explosive battles, and femme fatales.
Both are about space bounty hunters dealing with space pirates and criminals. Both are very exciting and have great characters. Most people probably already know this but I have to throw it out there. They are both great series.
Both have a ship...hunt bounties...cool intro/outro...outlaw star is like the offspring of cowboybebop
Bounty Hunters, Bounty Hunters, Bounty Hunters! in the future of course!
Both involves bounty hunting to make ends needs and drifting from planet to planet doing odd jobs here and there to get by. Plus, both ships are old and run downed heaps of scrap.
Of course the main similarity is that it's in space :P It also tells a similar story of Outlaws that have a strict moral code. There is a lot of action like Bebop and the storytelling is very similar.
A 'space cowboy' show. Albeit not nearly as mature or profound, Outlaw Star excels in its mastery of numerous genres, switching from comedy to psychological to action within minutes, yet with a skill and flow that few series can match.
Both involve an eclectic cast of characters traversing the galaxy and having misadventures. Both are episodic in structure.

Outlaw Star is sometimes compared to Cowboy Bebop - they are really very similar.
This is what would be Cowboy Bebop with drama removed...
The space adventure is the main theme of these anime. Also both have include a bit of comedy and drama component.
-Both series take place in the future in outer space

Similar plot devices, similar stories of main characters riding a well tuned state of the art spaceship.
Even though because of the similarity you will think that Outlaw Star is a copy of Cowboy Bebop, it's more light hearted and it will surely grow on you.
I definitely recommend it and I definitely think that you will become a fan of Outlaw Star if you are already a fan of Cowboy Bebop.
both main characters are bounty hunters and make money by collecting bounties and doing jobs
Same kind of space adventures by a somewhat dysfunctional crew of outlaws.
Cowboy Bebop and Outlaw Star are both space westerns featuring a crew containing bounty hunters that attempt to make a living off their jobs. In both anime, the crews' attempt to "make it big" through high paying bounties or jobs is often foiled. Both are episodic anime that concentrate more on individual stories, while the overall plot is an undercurrent that compliments the series rather than dominating it. Cowboy Bebop's individual stories tend to be deep or compelling, while Outlaw Star's individual stories focus more on comedy instead, but Outlaw Star does not lack in emotion and Cowboy Bebop does not lack in comedy.
They are both sci-fi anime where their protagonists are both bounty hunters who engage themselves in space adventures with lots of action and drama. Outlaw star is not a masterpiece like cowboy bebop but it's certainly good and you will enjoy it.
Both have that 90s atmosphere of anime, and both deal with a group traveling space doing various tasks. It's like a weird but quirky fantasy/space slice of life kind of? Both deal with group of characters/friends traveling space doing spontaneous but adventurous things.
Both stories center around a crew of bounty hunters travelling the stars on a spaceship, and have many similar elements to how their plot develop... as well as similar antagonists. The major differences between the two shows is that the characters in Outlaw Star tend to be more goofy and cartoony, while in Cowboy Bebop, they generally remain serious and realistic.
In both of these shows, the main characters always end up getting themselves into unfortunate happenings out of sheer bad luck, in the process of trying to do certain things so they can make a living/earn money to fuel their needs of being rich/needing to live.
These anime have many similarities. Both have main characters who are bounty hunters, both take place in the future and involve space travel, both have a group of friends that travel with them, both anime are named after the spaceship's the MC pilot. They are great anime and I highly suggest both!
These two anime share similar tones of action and mystery when it comes to
adventuring in space with a crew for the sake of finding answers. Their main stories don't evolve until near the end as there are a lot of side plots along the way that are meant to expand on the world you've been thrown into.
There are many similarities between these shows:

- Both have similar animation style.
- Both were released in 1998.
- Seinen animes, although they have comedy sometimes.
- Both were produced by Sunrise.
- Both are episodic.
They both cower space adventures, love, strange aliens and goofy jokes.
Similar general tone, sci-fi adventure with ragtag team of characters. Made by same studio.
Strong cast, space themed, great battle scenes and music.
Same company put these two Space westerns out the same year, Outlaw Star coming just a little before Bebop. Not as well polished but an entertaining and exciting journey for anyone lucky enough to find this sentimental gem. It is worth a watch no doubt.
