File:Star Ocean EX set.jpg

This is a complete episode listing for the anime series Star Ocean EX (スターオーシャンEX Sutā Ōshan EX?). Adapted from Mayumi Azuma's seven-volume manga series Star Ocean: The Second Story, the twenty-six episode series is directed by Hiroshi Watanabe and was produced by Studio Deen. The series first premiered in Japan on TV Tokyo from April 3, 2001.[1] The final episode aired on September 25, 2001.[2] The source manga was based on the video game Star Ocean: The Second Story, however it only covered the first half of the game, resulting in both it and the anime adaptation telling an incomplete story.

Star Ocean EX was released to VHS tape and Region 2 DVD by Movic, with the first volume released on July 27, 2001 and the final volume released March 29, 2002. Movic also released a series of five drama CDs to complete the story.[3] In 2004, Geneon Entertainment announced they had acquired the license to release the series to Region 1 DVD.[4] They released the first of six volumes on January 4, 2005 and the final volume on November 22, 2005. In Geneon's release, the first two volumes contained five episodes each, while the remaining volumes contained four.[5][6]

Two pieces of theme music are use for all twenty-six episodes. "To the Light", performed by Amika Hattan is used for the opening theme. Saori Nishihata's "Hearts" is used for the ending theme for the first twenty-five episodes, while the twenty-sixth episode uses "To the Light" for its ending.
