  • I want to love this anime.
    Just to set the pace of this review I'm writing it after watching 9 episodes.

    First off the character/background design in this anime is brilliant, the mixed in use of CGI at times is really nice. The voice acting seems really on the ball with various character types and for the most part no repetitive voice use.

    As for the music the opening always is great (personal opinion) and I ...

    Decent/cute anime with a hint of sci-fi.
    The title of this anime is what caught my attention. I was definitely expecting something more "ecchi." The anime has a decent plot: Average highschool girl (with exceptional piloting skills) living an average highschool life suddenly gets pulled into an overwhelming situation where she finds out she is the heir to the seat as Captain on a pirate ship called the Bentenmaru.
    The characters are ...

    Focuses on the Boring Aspects of Teenage Girls in Space
    I found this anime incredibly tedious and boring. We watched it in anime club and I gave up on it about ten episodes in, when there was a giant and tense space battle ... and I was still bored. The characters just wouldn't stop spouting useless technobabble.

    So that's a thing - way too much talking and not enough actually *doing* anything. (I'm not asking for glorious space battles, just *shut ...

    An interesting and pretty good looking world that is bogged down by uninteresting Pirates.
    Bodacious Space Pirates is your typical space anime. You got your ships fighting each other in mortal combat in the depths of space... oh, and the highschool girls... wait what? Yes, this show involves a little more of a women's touch then you would think. From typical highschool hi jinks to not-quite-real piracy, the show's great and interesting world gets lost in translation with equally not fun ...

    What's in a name, really?
    I must say, "bodacious" is not really a word I would use to describe this series. There is a decent story, a few 1-2 episode sub-plots emerge, but overall it is rather vanilla. The world building is mediocre, and there are a few too many secondary characters for any of them to really be well developed. As for the main character, she is as happy-go-lucky as they come, which leads to her being ...

    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 ...

    Episode 26 There go the Pirates
    I just started watching this yesterday. It's a really great anime at first it really looked like her father did pass away leaving his daughter the ship. I seen some anime's like that. The ending I didn't see coming at all. That Marika father was really alive that really was a surprises. I really like the whole anime I added the anime to my favorites.
