If you enjoyed Outlaw Star and are looking for similar anime, you're in luck as there are a number to choose from. This list of the best anime like Outlaw Star is ranked according to your votes. Based on the manga series written and illustrated by Tahehiko Itō, the 26-part anime series Outlaw Star takes place in outer space, where the crew of the titular ship Outlaw Star search for treasure, namely the "Galactic Leyline."

Aside from the obvious choice of Cowboy Bebop, other recommendations for fans of Outlaw Star include Gurren Lagann and Trigun. There is also the treasure-hunting anime Space Dandy, as well as classic Neon Genesis Evangelion. You can also check out the anime One Piece, which like Outlaw Star, centers on a crew (this time pirates) that goes in search of the ultimate treasure.
