After barely getting settled into her new position, she gets a stowaway aboard her ship, The Bentenmaru. Her stowaway is a royal princess. Princess Gruier from the Serenity Planet System has a job for the Bentenmaru. Find a ghost ship that has been causing some trouble for the Serenity military. This job is a little fishy. There seems to be some strange behavior from the Serenity Royal Court and the military. Marika and her crew may be in over their heads.
This series is a lot of fun. It has great animation, voice acting, soundtracks; lots of cool characters, plenty of action, and some comedy. Many series nowadays rely on fan service and perverted situations to keep people interested. This series surprisingly doesn't have any of that so far. I'm not knocking that stuff, but I had the impression that this was gonna be that kind of show; given the name of the series and the product description.
This anime is well thought out. The backdrop is a really giant interstellar world, with lot's of history, nations, and possibilities. The production quality is top notch, as I mentioned before. There are lots of great voice talents.Read more ›
While the weird anime fixation on high schoolers doing unbelievable stuff continues here, it makes it fun and engaging. It starts with likeable characters, from the lead to her crew to her classmates. Even though the piracy is sanctioned and largely benevolently applied (they often raid cruise ships who request them to do so as a show for their guests), there are regularly developing dangers for Marika to overcome on the job while she gets a handle on things...all while maintaining her grades, club activities, and part-time job on the ground.
The visuals are animated quite well for a television series, with nice ship design and character art. Although most of the girls sort of blur together to start with due to numbers, they begin to be used more towards the end of the run, so it's not a problem. If you're wondering, there's not a lot of fan-service here, which is appropriate for the majority of ages depicted, so don't look to this show for that.Read more ›
There are some enjoyable characters in this show but all in all you have your stereotypical Japanese anime characters. The main protagonist has deeper emotions and ambitions. She is talented and a born captain.You do get pumped up when the opening starts playing and it's possible to ride that high for a little while. But, eventually, you either enjoy the events that are unfolding or you don't. The important thing is that you want to stick around long enough to find out whether you'll like it or not. Sometimes, you get bored out of your skull. Other times, you're hooked from beginning to end. That inconsistency can easily threaten your enjoyment of the show.You have your typical anime stereotypical relationships.
The Anime has very pretty visuals, from the shots of Marika's Elaborate University High to all the little things like the omnipresent computer displays that float in the air wherever they might be summoned.The bridge crew of the Bentenmaru are all unique, each with their own quirks and all with very nice character designs that set them apart from each other
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 series is missing out on something that kicked off the 2012 anime season.Likable characters, carefree and enjoyable story, with a lot of action and nicely done artwork and visuals. Even the side characters are alive and enjoyable.
Overall quite a fun series, also there Movie is planned coming soon for this series due 2013
