    Marika o Marika, why so silly
    After watching the ending of the golden ship story arc, I tuned into crunchyroll the following week and thought I should watch me some space pirates, aye. Unfortunately, I found meself lacking all kinds of willpower to continue watching, and why? For a gentelman pirate like meself not to like a spacefaring pirate tale?! Shiver me timbers!
    The premise was great to begin with, and at first sight ...

    Don't expect action, expect cosy, cute adventures!
    I fancy myself playing space games like the old classic Freelancer once in a while. If I were to describe what I feel when watching Bodacious Space Pirates, it'd be Freelancer, minus the action made into a movie. It's hard to but your finger on, but there's some weird, comfortable atmosphere around this anime that makes it feel very relaxed and pleasant to watch. Mostly, I think this is built up ...

    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! ...

    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.

    Just Wow! Can't recommend this enough.
    Honestly I have to admit I was totally blown away by this series. While it might not win any originality contests, who cares? It's an exciting adventure with semi-realistic space travel, lots of cannons and unique, enjoyable characters that really draw you into the story.

    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 ...

    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 ...

  • An excellent story which is shown through Anime
    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

    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 ...
