Mouretsu Pirates

Postby ZephyrStar » Tue Jan 10, 2012 2:16 pm

Starting a thread for Mouretsu Pirates.

ANN Encyclopedia entry:
http://www.animenewsnetwork.com/encyclopedia/anime.php?id=11399

This anime is directed by Tatsuo Sato. He directed my all time favorite show, Nadesico. He also directed Stellvia.

So far I'm hooked. I'm getting all these awesome flashbacks to 90's shows, I just hope this becomes more ridiculous and silly and over the top. The MC is a little lackluster, but I think she'll be fine once she realizes she has the blood of a space pirate :D

You know, this is a really easy show to get hooked on! Seriously...

The plot is easy to follow
The characters are easy to distinguish and have likable personalities
The animation is fluid and shiny
Lots of dynamic energy and motion

Granted its not a "OH MY GAD THIS IS THE BEST FIRST EPISODE I HAVE EVER SEEN!" or a "THIS ANIME IS THE BEST OF THE SEASON" either. But it certainly is a 'WOW! SWEET! I THINK I'LL FOLLOW THIS!"

Totally worth taking a look.
Spoiler :
Just started with Crunchyroll and I must say, I like it. I thought my internet was slow as hell (it can't even play Youtube right). But for some reason, Crunchyroll is perfect EVEN in HD! Highly recommended. :up:

I freaking love the

Spoiler :
target practice scene...her mom is a BAD ASS. "here, try this beam cannon" WE NEED MOAR OF THIS.

Story is getting going a little bit. I enjoyed the spacewalk part of ep 3, that was awsm. Especially that shot of the hangar doors opening and just blackness and stars beyond.

Hmmm...

Spoiler :
Still slowly world building. I love the attention to details on the ship, it really does feel like a sailing ship versus a space ship. I'm waiting for them to get into some serious stuff, and judging by the preview there will be. Love the idea that the ship still might have it's original weaponry that is hidden...it has it's original combat radar system! I don't like the cockpit though, I wish it were more transparent, or at least had some large screens showing the outside. Feels like being inside a tin can.

I have a feeling things will get super epic soon, hope I'm not disappoint. (Manga readers have stated that it really picks up around this time)

while i'm enjoying it so far I'm still waiting on the actual space action to occur. There's gotta be some cool battles or something coming up eventually...I mean, this is about pirates isn't it? even if they are moe pirates
