     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 and investigate a distress signal from a lost starship near Jupiter. Starlight comes across a wrecked spacecraft, holding a lone survivor: a mysterious young female amnesiac named Sara Cyanbaker. Starlight is then immediately attacked by some sort of weaponized probes and sucked into a vortex that takes them to a moon called Oberon near Uranus. There they find an artifact in the form of an ancient galactic map that points 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 Norse 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. What they find there puts everyone in grave danger.

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.
