Okawari-Boy Starzan S (オカワリボーイ スターザンS, Okawari Bōi Sutāzan Esu), or simply Starzan S, is an anime created by Tatsunoko Production[2] from an idea by veteran studio director Hiroshi Sasagawa.

The series is a "mixture of Star Wars and Tarzan",[3][page needed] populated with a mix of supporting characters who were parodies of well-known real-life figures, including singers Junko Yagami (namesake of the show's female lead) and Elvis Presley.

Cancelled at only 34 episodes due to low ratings, the series remains one of the Tatsunoko studio's more obscure works until the series was released on video in Japan on Blu-ray by TC Entertainment in 2017.[4] There exist Spanish, Polish and Korean language dubs of the anime as well.

"Okawari" is a Japanese expression used when the user is requesting a second helping of food or drink.

Plot[edit]

There is a planet in the galactic system named Kirakira which is rich in natural greens, and there live two main tribes on the planet namely Senobi and Robot. The former live in the wooded region while the latter inhabit the desert area, who are anxious to move to and settle on the woodland for better lives. This desire causes incessant strife around the border zones. The Senobi tribe love nature and want to live in peace without being harassed by the others. On the other hand, the formerly high-tech Robot tribe have become militant as they want to expand their sphere of influence from the desert to the wooded region. A young hero of the Senobi tribe together with his supporters makes efforts to stop the feud between the two tribes and to help them live in peace.
