"In short, new crew of a new solar sail powered ship find young girl in space. Go against orders to help her. Go on long, long trip of discovery & discover......NOTHING! Only good part...opening few minutes of this anime. I wish I could find the cd."
There are far worse titles from manga corps

"First I would like to state I mark most Manga Corps/Central Park Media titles high. This due to the fact that the first anime titles i ever saw were Manga Corps titles that aired on Sci Fi chanel back in the late 90's.
Anyway onto the review
As several of the reveiws mention this one is a space opera(soap opera/drama in space). Crew of this new ship head for some where, save a girl, find an old space ship frozen in ice and then go off to the back side of nowhere(which is probably pretty desolate in space) They find the origin of all inteligent life, fight this big thing, and it ends with no real concluding events taking place. Typical late 80's/early 90's ending. The bigges flaw is that this plot is more suited to a longer format like a multi episode OVA that could delve deeper into the themes. If you want to get into the titles of the late 80's i recomend this one along with Project A-ko, Gall Force. Odin isnt ground breaking, but its not a bad one for an escape from modern cliches in anime."
