Ōban Star-Racers Wiki

Ōban Star-Racers (オーバン・スターレーサーズ Ōban Sutā Rēsāzu) is a French/Japanese anime created by Savin Yeatman-Eiffel of Sav! The World Productions. Originally produced as a short movie titled Molly Star Racer, a television series was developed in cooperation with Jetix Europe, with animation production by HAL Film Maker and Pumpkin 3D. It aired in more than 90 countries including Japan. In the US the series aired on ABC Family and Jetix/Toon Disney between June and December 2006.

The result of six years of development and two and a half years of intensive production in Tokyo and Paris, Ōban Star-Racers sets itself apart from other series by the quality of its 2D/3D animation and its attention to detail – carefully crafted designs, rich characters and story – which are similar to those usually found only in feature films.

OSR is also a unique artistic collaboration between Japan and Europe. STW’s artistic team have lived and worked in Tokyo for more than 2 years, in perfect osmosis with their Japanese collaborators. Anime « goddess » Yoko Kanno (Cowboy Bebop, Escaflowne) composed the opening and the closing songs, and Taku Iwasaki (Witch Hunter Robin, Black Cat) composed more than 80 epic symphonic tracks for the background music.
