  • Gateway anime drug. Addict your friends.
    This is the gateway anime that hooked me and many of my friends. (Think of it as a feel good virus.)

    High school girl, with a single-parent mom, discovers her dad is really a (space) pirate who has just died and, as the only living heir, she inherits the pirate captaincy. And, due to bizarre space law, unless she immediately takes command, the entire crew disbands forever. Watch her manage her ...

    Anticlimactic Space Pirates
    To put it simply, this show is all style and very little substance. The visuals are pretty, despite what the title might suggest fanservice never takes over the show (it's next to nonexistent, actually), the character designs are crisp and detailed, and the CGI is serviceable, if slightly suffering from a not too generous budget. The ending song is catchy, especially after you listen to it a ...

    In space Nothing much happens
    For a title that says Bodacious Space Pirates. There's not a lot really going on here. None of these pirates are "Bodacious" and there's not too much pirating going on. There is space though. so I guess 1 out of 3 words in the title was correct. since 33% is an F. and 2 out of 5 stars is 40%. Ill give this one a straight 1 star. For being boring and being generally misleading.

    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 ...

    Prety good for a new twist on an old tale
    I enjoyed watching this series as a space of life, Sadly there is more to the tale, I found it way to short..

    1st 26 episodes just a filler to where people fit within the story..


    going to be interesting to see if another arc will come to pass...

    It's got Story, and that's about it.
    Despite the name, this show is as tame as it gets. With interesting character designs, amazing backgrounds, and a decent cast of cliche characters, the less cliche cliche's really. The story moves forward properly without any problems, no awkward twists or jump the sharks. It can be uninteresting at times, but that's why we're looking at the characters, they make the boring seem ...

    This anime drew me in completely
    It's a really light-hearted, funny anime. This one is out of my usual genres, but I gave it a shot, and I'm really glad I did. I couldn't stop watching it until I finished the series (or fell asleep once). The only thing I don't like is that I didn't see a lot of depth in the characters. Yes, the main character is surprising, headstrong, willful, optimistic, and everything else, but I don't feel ...

    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 ...

    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 ...
