Not much happened until the officer tried to arrest Marika at the cafe then all hell broke lose and Marika and Chiaki had to make a break for it, the real action will start next episode. Marika is pretty likable and Chiaki with her tall, dark, and bishoujo personality as well and my she has a bit of a weakness to sweets.

That was about 8x better than what I expected. In fact, I didn't even see any fanservice. (I saw miniskirt and expected some XD) It had a great introduction...

Anyways, that was great. I love that theres finally an anime (that I know of) that uses pirates (other than OP). The hairstyles are a little annoying, but I'm liking it so far.
Will watch! :D

I loved the first ep.
Despite being called Miniskirt Pirates they neither went with fanservice nor moe.
Instead they delivered a straightforward sci-fi adventure story with a basic plot that could have worked in a traditional pirate setting as well.
I am very pleased.

This show was entertaining glad its trying to be something it's not. I love the high technology in the show.

So far one of the best new shows i saw so far this season.

I'm so damn glad they finally have a female lead character thats not annoying yet.

So glad its licensed. I cant wait to get it. It went much better than I expected. All of the major characters are interesting, Ririka-san is an epic pirate whom better stay throughout the series, I hope, Kane McDougal brings me all the laughs, and Chiaki Kurihara is pretty cool. banana parfait scene was awesome. Graphics and animation were nice, and the theme song, though seemingly like a glorious mess was quite catchy. I loved it.

but this, lol.

It was alright but one thing that bugged me was when the gun fight broke out Chiaki and Marika just left Marika's coworkers all alone, but i bet the coworkers wont be dead next ep.

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.

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.

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.

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.

From the first minute to the last minute everything was nice ♥
I'm willing to drop all these few days new releases for this if I have to, well, maybe except Nisemonogatari :)
