ミニスカ宇宙海賊 (Miniskirt Uchū Kaizoku) - the original title.



is a Japanese light novel series written by Yūichi Sasamoto, which began publication from Asahi Shimbun from October 2008. An anime television series adaptation produced by Satelight, under the title Bodacious Space Pirates (モーレツ宇宙海賊 Mōretsu Pairētsu?), will begin airing in Japan from January 8, 2012


From the wikipedia entry because I couldn't find one on ANN.



So... first episode was surprisingly good. I admit I didn't expect much from the series, but I really liked it. The OP was good, I can't imagine that the girls singing that song survived without scratchy throats. lol The art style was somewhat reminiscent of 90's anime, or perhaps ealy 00 stuff.

The story itself was kinda cute and funny too. Can't wait to see what comes up next.

I'm going to check out this series later today. Will be the first pirate themed anime I'll be watching.

Not bad at all. I liked the first episode as it introduces some of the main characters and a small hint of what the plot may be. Has action, drama, and comedy. I didn't like the opening song thou so will be skipping it every episode from now on. But, I'll definitely continue watching this series

Awkward moment:

"So, what does your mom do for a living?"

"Oh mine? Yea, she was a pirate. No she didn't steal. She was a legal pirate."

Absurdity... Strange show with great animation but I'm not finding myself too intrigued by it. It has promise, I give you that, but the plot seems weird. Space pirates... doing pirate things. Argh, I don't know what to expect and I don't feel like I got a taste of what might come ahead. Regardless, I enjoyed it a fair bit but I don't know what to think of it. This is like a mystery flavor lolipop...

Oddly enough, the concept of the "legal pirate" or privateer is well established in history. Of course, it was only legal from the standpoint of the country that granted the Letter of Marque to citizens. It was basically a self-funded way to wage primarily economic warfare against an enemy.

As an example of how this works, when you purposely kill people on your own (unless in self defense), it is called murder. When the state tells you to do it, is is called warfare.

Whats not to like about this anime? You have a rockin opening, unique setting, the characters seem likable, and its about not just pirates but space pirates.

I've already watched it twice! It is awesome! I have read plenty of Science Fiction with space pirates. The basic premise of the world isn't that different from Firefly, though the general vision of the world seems a bit more optimistic about the future. It has great art, great music, a great leading lady, and some awesome spaceships!

The first episode of the show was surprising good. Not at all what you'd expect from a show called Bodacious Space Pirates. I'll keep watching for sure.
