Well, I actually expect this anime would be good, but it was better what I think.

It's a old style anime but you can't hate that. ^_^

I can't remember which one that are simliar to the main character but I kind of like her.

Oh yeah who have even hear about a legal space pirate?
Even pirate is not legal.
Hmm.. I guess they aren't that bad. :)

Don't you think home security is a bit complicated?
The number she pressed, eye scanned security, very nice :)

They actually existed, especially England under Elisbeth I was famous for it's privateers. These privateers were allowed to attack and plunder foreign ships under the decree of the Queen.

This introduction episode was great but well, what did you expect from Tatsuo Sato ? The OP was awesome too and the series has a lot of potential overall.

In every age, in every place, the deeds of men remain the same.

WHY? The black haired girl already reminds me of Kuroneko in Oreimo, but it turns out they have the same seiyu (I like her) and they speak in the same manner... -.- It's kind of boring I think?

But it's better than I expected, well, it doesn't have any annoying fanservice, I'm happy about it! And Chiyaki Omigawa is part of the cast, so I got one more reason to watch this anime!

AND THE OP SONG IS SO ANNOYING! -.- And I think I'm the only one who think like that...

I really enjoyed it.

The older style works with the settings, and I like the character design so far. Marika looks great and her character is likable.

The animation doesn't seem noteworthy: at least I didn't cringe at anything.

Music? If there were BGMs used, they didn't really leave an impression, but that OP... It is glorious.

It's pretty hilarious how some anons on /m/ are complaining about the lack of action or about the "slow pacing". IMHO this episode gave a solid introduction to some of the characters, and the world in which this story takes place in.

Nearly 5/5.

Marika's design is so lovely, and she seems likable. Nice to see a new space opera, don't get these too often anymore.

Not a great first episode, but a good one. Don't know what to expect but it has potential. I just have to worry about this: Are the light novels finished? I don't think they are...? If so, that's a worrying point for me.

Though I am getting so sick of the transfer student shit. Mysterious transfer student comes in, and I can already guess the scenario: She'll walk past the MC when going to her seat, glance at her, the MC will be confused. Later on she'll approach the MC all ~mysteriously~ for good measure.

One more thing: very interesting setting so far, even though they aren't even out in space yet

The OP was awesome! You don't normally expect something like power metal when you go into a 'cute girls' show, so it really put me into a unique mood and set the tone for the show, which, like the OP, seems to be more than it seems on the surface. I really like the main character and I can see her being one of those unique and strong female MCs later down the road. I also love Hanazawa in more aggressive roles (Kamisama Dolls used that well). The first episode was a little slow but hopefully it's not like Guilty Crown's slowness in getting the main character into the situation we all know they are going to end up in, if so I can see myself really liking this show.

This was my second pleasant surprise of the day (Symphogear being the first).

Call me crazy, I actually liked the opening xD

Next episode preview looked awesome. Can't wait :)

This anime looks to be quite promising! So far no idea what legal pirates do, since the war ended a century ago, but I loved the portrayal of how crazy a transition this is for Marika. I shall definitely be following this series.

The atmosphere was even better than I expected. Liking it even more than Symphogear's first episode, didn't expect that. Really liking the futuristic setting, though I do hope there's gonna be some more pirate aspects besides the outfit.

So i play the episode and hear what? Kiritsugu. \o/
This turned out to be very good. Not so orignal but interesting premise, rather good looking seiyuu cast and overall enjoyment was high, liking this already. Also dat Chiaki.

Didn't look it up before I watched it.

Was expecting a comedy to add some emotion to week. But was instead given reasonable characters and potentially a plot.

I have something to look forward to over the next few months.

Lol Legal Space Pirates. Anyway interesting episode indeed, art looks nice and the characters are pretty nice so far. That ending leaves a very nice taste, look forward to the next episode.

Legal space pirates? Interesting. Im not as impressed as I was with Senki Zesshou Symphogear. I'll keep watching and hope it doesn't suck as much as Mirai Nikki or Guilty Crown.

I get the same vibe from this as I got with Asobi ni Iku Yo! Only with less fanservice (so far). It even has Kana-chan voicing the mysterious kick ass black haired glasses girl.

I get the feeling the show will get super silly. Which could be fun. I'll watch it for awhile.

Promising.

Yup, good start for a 26 episode series.
bla bla bla
The endless debate between fans and haters. At one point, after spending a lot of time on MAL, you just realize it's totally pointless.

I thought this was going to be marginal during the OP, but when the actual show started it was surprisingly good. They did a good job of explaining the Letters of Marque license for privateering (piracy), and there was some interesting future tech shown (as well as a few hints of how the economy of a frontier planet operates, which may explain why the letters of marque have not been rescinded). This might be a hit.
Please don't feed the trolls!

BEST SHOW of the season for me. no doubt. i'll watch Nisemonogatari when the BDs comes out, skipping the tv airings for now.

now this one's promising, and with a classic plot like this, i'm sold.. and 26 episodes just solidified my excitement to watch this.. it was a good start, not over the top and definitely opened up for more things to watch out for in the future..

damn, all these sci-fi shows with female protagonists in them are actually hyping up my winter 2012..
