Yes!

This episode was AMAZING! And here I thought good sci-fi was dead.
Laugh and the world laughs with you. Weep and you weep alone.

That "battle" was pretty lame, is that really what we were waiting for? And all of a sudden she wants to become a pirate after she was almost killed? Seems legit.

Black haired girl isn't a normal student? I AM SO SHOCKED!!!!11!! EPIC PLOT TWIST RIGHT HURR!!!

When the hell would you people learn that this is a SPACE OPERA series and not an ACTION series?

Either way, I'm excited for the next episode as Marika finally becomes the captain. Can't wait.

Tonight... we are young... so let's set the world on fire, we can burn brighter, than the sun...

^ another one who doesn't get the appeal of SPACE OPERAS.. and try no to be too provoking as a troll because you're bashing another show that is widely known to be very intelligently written and whose fans or any of those who completed watching it would keep on laughing at you and at what you said..
and it's not like the enemy is using his naked eye.. they did say they were using optical devices in which we wouldn't know the magnifying intensity of.. the reinforcement ships were indeed detected first, as they appeared in Odette II's radar when they got in range before arriving (that part in the episode seemed to happen so fast, i think they sped up the pace in that one because this introductory arc is almost over) and of course, the enemy wouldn't know because they shut down their computers..

anyway, this episode is pure WIN.. thank heavens we're getting stuff like this again where we actually need to use our intelligent minds to watch..
and it was a bit surprising that Chiaki also happened to be a daughter of a pirate captain herself (so far, i don't think she's in the exact same position as Marika yet, as her father might still be alive and she's just the soon to be successor, based on her reintroduction).. i've had suspicions on which faction she might be working for but i never thought she'd really be a captain or soon to be captain of a pirate ship instead, i thought she was an agent of some organization..

It doesn't matter if its a ACTION or SPACE OPERA these developments are horrible and so is the pacing.

I'm sure they'd have magnification on their optical targeting system, and notice that they weren't that accurate either. As for the reinforcements coming out of "nowhere", remember that there were originally three ships without transponders that the Pres. mentioned to Kane. The bad guys and the two Pirates. They should have good enough stealth systems to not be detected until they decide to join the party. Plus,if Marika figured out where the attack would occur, I doubt it was that big of a problem for the pros.

If you think this show is boring, go back to watching plot and character free shows. Nobody is forcing you to watch it!

What? I love action; I just don't get how people could find that boring!

That got me really excited, yet I didn't even see the damn people on Lightning 11.

I think this is one of those animes that are "smart" and intriguing. I love it and I'm really, really glad that I decided to watch it. And plus, there isn't any ecchi like I thought there would be!

I'm really excited to see the next episode. We get to meet the crew... 21 more episodes of this great anime!

And Marika is one of those rare, seemingly silly female characters that I like. She's actually pretty smart. And I like the captain. XD

Yay Moretsu Pirates! Off to try and find the novel to read now.

I'm definitely getting LoGH vibes from this, which, for the record, also had "slow pacing".

Fucking glorious.

It's OK, you can go watch shows without character development that send hapless idiots off half cocked and just have lots of flash and no substance.

So, did YOU guess ahead of time that Chiaki was the daughter of another space pirate? We all knew she was not a normal student, but who she is was a good twist. (I unfortunately read a spoiler on that a couple weeks ago)

As for Marika making her choice, perhaps she enjoyed the thrill of the fight? She certainly seems to have a knack for making decisions under pressure. If it scared her away, you'd complain that she was a wimp, but since she showed some spirit you'll hate on her for that instead. Just don't watch if you don't like it.

if that's your opinion in the show, we can't change your mind about it..

but on how we see it, the slow pacing is actually what's perfect for a space opera like this.. and it's not a 1-cour anime where they need to rush the plot anyway.. the many details that they feature in the show to make it more sound and coherent that Marika's actually being pulled into this pirate business is not similar to many shounen shows where they just introduce a premise and then throw the protagonist into the whole ordeal and let his luck or destined skill/ability take him/her towards the end of the story in victory.. instead of pronouncing story elements in the show, they actually spend the time to build it and around it so as to make Marika's transition from talented student to space pirate captain be seamless and not exaggerated..
the battle is also not boring.. it's actually exciting in my case because it's a single blind strategic battle and it would've done you better if you used your neurons to actually understand every detail in it.. what's even better about it is that the battle is within the bounds of what non-idiot high school girls of their generation can do.. they didn't pull off some exaggerated stuff..
and if you have complaints to the development.. .. .. well, if you're referring to the character development, i'd like to kill you.. if you're referring to the plot development, well, just look at what i said above and realize that this is just an introductory arc.. next week, we'd get to see what this show would really have to offer.. if somehow you're complaining about Chiaki being a space pirate captain's daughter herself by being sarcastic about it, then it's not even that big of a plot twist at all.. they did spend time to build on her character as someone who is unlike any of the other students and seem to be very experienced in this pirating business.. only the certainty of who she really is, is what's tackled in that scene.. it all seemed to be natural and a bit surprising at the same time.. if you're complaining about Marika's decision, then you really haven't been paying attention to the show or are not able to empathize with her character..

and oh yah.. .. .. it also does matter if it's action or space opera.. especially when you may not be sure of what one of them means..

think first before bashing..

Daughter of a space pirate, son of a space pirate who cares? It all means the same thing, that she is somehow related to the space pirates and I knew that from episode one.

Marika has been disappointing me for awhile now. There isn't any emotion in her character even when she heard her father the space pirate had died she kept a "cool story bro" attitude. Information of the wonders of pirating had to be spoon fed to her by her mother because Marika was showing so little interest until her mom pulled out a "LAZER GUN BLOWING UP A TANK OMFG SO COOL!!!" in episode 2

No I will not drop this anime because then I won't be able to write how much of a trainwreck this show was. So just sit there and accept my criticism on this anime and if you don't like them don't reply.

would the haters please drop this show and be done with it please?

I really liked this episode, and how they won without firing a single beam (and these ARE still schoolgirls, mind you. They wouldn't stand a chance to a bording party, and the Odette II is completely unarmed as well).

With this ep, my rating of the show went up by one point. Looking forward to next ep
I want Rambo in a mecha-suit with a laser-chainsaw gun that fires nuclear warheads, fighting the love-child of Predator, Alien, a group of Bangladeshi terrorists, and Satan. (Actually that would be a pretty sick show) - StopDropAndBowl

Seems the major complaint about this show is the pacing, which I don't understand why. It's 26 episodes long and is suppose to be more of a space opera like Star Trek. The beginning is suppose to be more like a "slice of life" show until Marika joins the Bentenmaru crew. It gives the show a chance to build on characters (notice a huge cast) and story. Same with Puella Magi Madoka Magica and Fate/Zero last year.

So far, I am enjoying this show. It's a nice change compared to those over-cliched, plot broken, and excessive fan-service shows lately, *cough* Guilty Crown.

Now that Marika has made her decision, it's adventure time into the unknown. I expect the danger and action to slowly ramp up from here on. All that's missing is the talking parrot and the space plank.

In Violink's defensive, its hard to make arguments against a show you have not completed.

As for me, I am on the fence about this show. I came expecting a colorful cast of crew members and so far these high school girls leave much to be desired, I hope the non-student crew are a bit more diverse and eccentric.

I think the problem people are having with t,his show is that it's not "drama", "comedy", "action" or "psychological". It's just "Sci fi" and "space" and these two genre alone aren't really bread winners for anime.

well, we're not even talking about the show as a whole.. we're just discussing what has been shown so far.. who knows, this might actually turn crappy in the long run.. but we need not delve into that when we haven't even reached 1/5 of the show.. so far, it is leaning towards the right path of good storytelling..

well, in my case, i find these high school girls to be more interesting than a lot of the other high school girls depicted in the industry.. they have attitude and they seem to know what they're doing yet i could still see that they are high school girls..

new fans of anime, you mean.. us long time anime fans or at least those who have a taste on the works of good ol'times and know their space opera are more than delighted that we're having a show like this again.. especially because it is by no means a dumb show despite how it initially sounds if you look at the title..
