Storyline

It is the year 2099, and mankind has taken great advances in its development of space travel: people sail through space in ships powered by photon-laser engines, and parts of the solar system have been colonized. The newly-built space schooner the Starlight is launched on a maiden voyage to venture beyond the boundaries of the system. The ship comes across a wrecked spacecraft, holding one lone member: a mysterious young woman named Sara Cyanbaker. The crew later discovers a series of artifacts on a lonely asteroid, which when examined, point to an ancient Norwegian mariner's folk song which mentions the Norse god Odin. Sara starts to have strange dreams of a place called Odin; with these facts, the crew deduces that Odin may actually exist as a planet, the place of paradise that is so often spoken of in mythology. And so a perilous journey begins towards the Canopus system in search of the planet Odin, which could be the possible cradle of life in the universe. Written by Q. Leo Rahman

Not bad for old anime
24 December 1999 | by (Los Angeles, California) – See all my reviews

It's no Akira, but Odin: Photon Sailing Ship Starlight is entertaining, if nothing more. You won't find any deep themes or realistic, enduring characters- just some decent animation and an adequate story. Although it in no way compares to some more recent efforts in the field, it is ok in it's own right.
