Mouretsu Pirates

What a relief. We finally have Manyuu Hikenchou, an anime that revolves around big breasts, behind us. When I first read the title of this show, Mouretsu Pirates, also known as “Bodacious Space Pirates”, I expected to see characters with ridiculous big breasts, breasts that hang roughly ten inches from the ground. Man, am I glad that that’s not the case. I like my fair share of ecchi scenes, but that would’ve been overkill.

The name pretty much gave it away. The show is about a girl that lives in a world where technology far exceeds ours. That means that the artwork has to be great and very creative in order to pull off a great Sci-Fi show. Still, it’s pretty good from what I’ve seen so far. It was no bother to look at, in fact; I can’t wait for the next episode.

The story is pretty interesting. It’s unique, very creative and has the potential for a lot of successful episodes. The manga, serialized in 2008, has been pretty successful, so let us see if the anime adaption will be too.

One question remains; do I recommend this show? Hmm… Well, I would definitely recommend this to all Sci-Fi fans. But, I’m pretty sure that a lot of other people will find this show just as amusing. I wouldn’t put this show in my top ten, but still, it’s definitely worth the chance, so go try it!

Plot Summary: The story centers around a spirited high school girl named Marika. She keeps herself busy with the space yacht club and her part-time job at a high-class retro café. One day, two men suddenly appear and claim to be subordinates of her dead father. They demand that she assume command of the space pirate ship Benten Maru. A privateer ship’s compact was made during a war of independence a century ago, and according to that compact, the ship must be inherited by the captain’s next direct descendant. Marika finds herself embarking on a new life as a space pirate.
