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,
