Marika Katou, a third year student at Hakuho Girls' Academy, is a legitimate space pirate with a Letter of Marque. Between her studies, leading her school's space yacht club, working part time at Cafe Lamp, and being the captain of the space pirate ship Bentenmaru, Marika's days are very busy. One day, Marika gets a job to rob a high-class passenger ship, and she discovers that on the passenger list is Kanata Mugen, a boy who owns a "galaxy pass". Thus, an adventure featuring a hyperspace race between pirates and one young boy begins.
Mouretsu Pirates is one of those easy Sunday afternoon shows. Watching Marika shoot around the galaxy in a miniskirt and a smile is a lot of fun. So why when making the film did they decide to replace the main character with a dreary, dickless little shit? Kanata Mugen hates his daddy, lives by high morals, and loves nothing more than a good frown. This archetype ringing any bells? He barges his way into the show and finds himself surrounded and pampered by cute girls. This self-insert hero fantasy would be bad enough as a sideplot, but the omnipresent
barnacle manages to squeeze his way into every fucking scene adding nothing but irritation and gloom. KILL HIM!
Aside from this show ruining character the movie adds nothing to the franchise. The animation quality has dropped since the series, the story seems drawn out and simplified at the same time, the Sci-fi elements are unimaginative, and rather than make new music they rehashed the old Momoclo song.
So, i like the Mouretsu Pirates series, this movie was not bad at all,but unlike the seires it doesnt deserve 9, rather 8 instead. Still i after watching i could say that it was relativly good.
Characters were as in series good, art and sound very good, story not so much, it was weaker then in the series but nevertheless enjoyable,
Mouretsu Pirates Universe is nice and it would be nice if there is more of it, and i really hope there will be as it deserve second season and lot more, i hope producers will see that and give us more of M Pirates,
This is my first review and i am not a native english speaker. So please bear with me.
I liked the anime to mouretsu pirates very much and gave it a 9/10. It was cool, fun and sexy. One of the best sci fi anime out there. In comparison this movie sucks a little bit. Though i want to give it a little bit credit. It looks good, even cgi parts and it was fun to a certain degree.
Yet i have two major complains with this movie. First of all it adds nothing new to the anime. It feels like they did this movie out of
purpose to gain more cash. There are not so much references to the anime. Just a few pics. Secondly marika was kinda replaced by Kanata Mugen. A boy who is whiny and hates his own dad out of reasons i guess. He was boring and i didn't care about him.
There were other things that bothered me too. The villains were boring and their reasons for doing bad things were just as boring as the villains. That other thing that bothered me was Grunhildes crush on Kanata. It came out of nowhere and i didn't get the reasons for that. They talked just like for four or five minutes and there was no real interaction, that lead to this kind of thing. Another thing was this scene where the girls from yacht club try to change kanatas clothes and they actedas if they never had seen a boy before. This whole scene was stupid.
If you want more from the anime, maybe you will be disappointed like me. But it can be enjoyed.
