    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 ...

    Let's make this short
    Moretsu Pirates aka Bodacious Space Pirates is a great watch. I wasn't sure about it because of the idiotic English name. I was afraid it was going to be all panty shot and giggly. It's not. It's a well balanced anime with an interesting story. It definitely grew on me and everyone I know who watched it. It's adventure. It's HS. It's fantasy. Everything all rolled into one. Definitely ...

    Light-hearted, Surprisingly Hard Sci-fi, Space Pirate Fun With Little Fanservice In Sight
    This show is not at all what I expected at first glance. I from the premise, I was expecting this to be a terrible-to-mediocre heavy-on-the-fan-service, light-on-the-plot show using a cast of school girls as walking panty shots while throwing in the occasional bit of action. But, hey, I love space opera and it's about space pirates and has a weird name and, who knows, it might be okay.

    I have ...

    Don't to fooled by the title
    At the time when I start to watch this series, I was in the mood for something fun and moe. So I pick this cause of the title. BOY, was I wrong. This is a great series with great depth in character development and wonderful pacing of story telling.
    Space pirates, maid cafe and a girls only high school seems to be all set for an all moe or ecchi comedy. But the show instead focus on what it means ...

    More than just cute girls in Space!
    Started off pretty promising, but dwindled down to "cute girls in space", for several episodes. But that wasn't enough for me to stop watching! I love the crew of the Bentenmaru, they're mostly one shots, but likable all the same. Marika (our heroine) is the best character by far, and I've stuck with the show this long, because of her. She's a confident, unassuming, teenage girl. Its refreshing ...

    Fun space Pirates, great music! Love this show!
    Don't let the title fool you, this is a fun series about a girl, Marika Kato, who inherits her late father's captain position on the pirate ship, the Bentenmaru. It is based on the light novel series Miniskirt Space Pirates. She is still in school which has a space yacht club, and she works in a maid cafe so we have school uniforms, maids, pirates and while that could be hecchi it is just fun! ...

    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 ...

    Better than what you expect
    for someone who has loved anime from the beginning(Otogi Manga Calendar) and such greats as Gundam from the 70's. this anime has a good mix of everything you need in a anime to work correctly not to mention a top notch intro that i have not seen in some time. give this series a chance and watch a few episodes and i think you will be please what what you watch.
