    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 ...

  • Sayonara, Bodacious Space Pirates
    I loved the show, and I'm really going to "miss" the characters. After 26 episodes, I feel I somehow know these non-existent 2D imaginary people. Although I loved the space action, the character bits were the real fun, and it's a little bit sad to think I'll never again get to hang out with the crew of the good old Bentenmaru and the charming Hakuhoh Academy Space Yacht Club girls.That's ...

    Good story, enjoyable characters, and a refreshing lack of fanservice
    I watched this one thanks to other reviews that pointed out the lack of fanservice, despite what the title suggests.

    There are many interesting characters, from the crew of the spaceship to the lead character's schoolmates. Interactions were well written and quite enjoyable to watch. I'm into yuri series, and there was a minor pairing in the middle of the series, which was a pleasant ...

    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 ...

  • Enjoyable, stands out
    This will be one of the memorable series for 2012, one that is mentioned in the top of any list for this year and definitely at the top of "must watch" lists for early 2012. While nothing is "for everyone", this series is likely to be high on nearly everyone's list of anime that they've enjoyed. Moretsu Pirates / Bodacious Space Pirates is going to be around for awhile, and not watching this ...

  • I hope for more Bodacious Space Pirates
    This one of the best anemia series I have watched. The depth of characters has been sufficient to start with and the main charters are growing as the series continues. The story itself moves well not much filler you could play this series as a movie and not have to cut anything. I cannot say this for many anemia series. The name Bodacious Space Pirates, is the only thing that could be changed but ...

    I am new to Anime etc, but I have since enjoyed various shows, and films, and I enjoy the deeper meaning in the stories, and the characters are brilliant, it is funny and the pace of it is exceptional to say the least.
    And thus far I am really enjoying the storyline and plot twists. 9/10

    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 ...

    Woo woo this anime rocks!
    This anime rocks. I love the music the animation but most of all I love that characters. You see how she grows, at first it was a bit slow but then it started to heat up and up. Culminating in a battle of epic proportions. Please Please Please Watch this anime it is so great. Marika still has a lot to learn but the most important part is that she trusts her crew. That is the most important ...
