    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 ...

  • 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 ...

  • 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 ...

    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 ...

    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 ...

  • 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 ...

    Give it a go, and see where the stars take you.
    Not a first choice for anime, however after watching it, it is a shame it ended. AI loved the development of all the characters in the way they developed separately and together. I can see many an OVA coming from this series for the side stories.

    The movement of the boats, the creaking of the Hulls, fabulous. Give it a go, Meet Marika and the crew.

    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 ...

  • 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 ...
