    Lookin good.. but no prize
    This really coulda been one of those animes that could have just rocked. Gals, Pirate Starships, Adventure... what more could you ask for. How bout a pack of mercenary anti heroes like what some pirates where.
    There were bad pirates and anti hero pirates. There was never any goody 2 shoes pirates. show pirates what a joke! I shoulda known this anime wasn't going to have the grit of Black Lagoon. ...

    I was expecting more... well more...
    I guess with a name like "Bodacious" Space Pirates I shouldn't have walked into this anime with such high expectations but I did.
    Guns and Dolls do have an appeal to me and this series did say fun to me at first.

    BSP is set in a far flung future where mankind has colonized deep space and now various star nations have formed. And now in their employ are are privateer ships and crews that can ...

    Space the f...wait...More Pirates Please
    I've watched plenty of series in the past and will most likely continue doing so in the future. One of my favorite genres has to be related to what I was first exposed to, and that'd be space themed series such as Captain Harlock, Galaxy Express 999, and Robotech. Granted Robotech is an amalgam of three separate series, I'll list it as the form I watched it. Now, it's not too hard for me to ...

  • Probably not your typical cup of tea but check it out.
    So upon exhausting my list of anime available to watch and catching up on weekly releases I stumbled upon this one and gave it a shot based upon the reviews with my expectations being on the level of Meh. After a short while I realized there were no more episodes and was sad that there is only one season. The story is actually well thought out and the way it is made makes it feel like it is an ...

  • A Truly Fun and Good Time
    What can I say, Moretsu Pirates is just plain old good fun.

    The story of a girl who is both a space pirate captain and a school girl, this show, and the girls on it, kick major ass.

    I know the name seems a bit off putting, but this is really one of the best, and gain the most fun, anime I have seen in a long long time

  • One of my favorite space opera anime shows!
    First off, this anime does have "campiness", the obsession of scantily clad teenage girls, kids in school who are heroes/action figures (which I hate). That being said, this show gives a unique, fresh twist on the "space pirate" genre. Great intro & opening song. Good technological ideas (hacking into other ships to take them over, counter electronics, using solar panels to "blind" ships who ...

    Bodacious Space Pirates - What Else Is There to Say?
    Bodacious Space Pirates - certainly a unique title for a show. One that contains elements of awesome, who doesn't love Pirates?

    And Space Pirates, no less? Come on, what more could you ask for? But does it live up to the promise its name makes to us?



    Bodacious Space Pirates was an odd show for my wife and I to watch. I mean, we never felt it was a bad show, but while watching it we ...

    suprisingly good!!!!
    so i watched this, and going in to it i was expecting lots of fanservice, no plot, mindless action. boy was i wrong. its none of those things.
    first off, this is a lighthearted series. dont expect anything world changing.
    what did impress me was the attention to technical detail and sound. a heavy emphsis on electronic warfare and strategy that (OMG!) takes into account actual real world ...

    A nice anime but expected a little more
    I first found out about this anime from cosplayers promoting it at Anime Expo. I'm usually into ecchi fan service animes and from looking at the main character and the title "Bodacious Space Pirates" I thought that was how this show was going to play out. That's completly not the case and is a sci-fi/adventure genre that really brings the viewer back to older titles like Cowboy Bebop. The art is ...

    Strap on you blunderbusses Girls, We're goin a Piratin!
    Wow, This show is not what I thought it was going to be. The operations and ship to ship warfare...holy crap! It should be called "Technically detailed girl space pirates". The show was surprisingly great. The name almost sent me off, but I'm glad I tried it. It has good artwork, and the space scenes are gorgeous. Nothing comes easy for Marika either, she really grows as a Captain, and has ...
