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 :)

legal pirates? wtf :))


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 seems rather decent, one of the best from the winter season so far. The ending was pretty cool aswell. :)

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.
