  • Grateful the anime is better than the title
    Let me start out with I the following statement, I watched the first episode thinking I would ditch this series because the title made me think it would be another harem or fan service anime. I am so glad I was disappointed in my initial thinking. This show is very refreshing and takes me back a bit to original anime where female characters could take a lead role and not be there just because of ...

  • Good story line and characters!
    So good! All the characters have full personalities. Despite school girl motif there are no gross panty shots. They emphasized strength through team work, and the value of friendship while being fun and exciting.
    Family friendly violence with kid finding herself. A+ would watch again.

  • Ignore the title, this is a must watch!
    Initially I was put off by the show's title, now I can only say what a fool I've been. Bodacious Space Pirates is a true joy to watch, I'm please with how it has managed to subvert my expectations by not being of some mediocre fan-service action romp, instead we get a great character drama with some of the best portrayal of female characters in the genre. I cannot emphasise how nice it is to see a ...

  • Great fun and awesome characters
    This show was really refreshing. It balanced itself really well, being funny and serious without disrupting itself with sudden tragedy or slapstick comedy. I also love space themes so having pirates in space was great. The show was clean, fun, and had a really solid cast of characters. I especially enjoyed the lead, Marika. It was nice to see a female character who is playful, kind, strong, AND ...

  • 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.

    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 ...
