THIS IS AN ANIME ONLY DISCUSSION POST. DO NOT DISCUSS THE MANGA BEYOND THIS EPISODE.
----------------------------------------
One of the better episodes in my opinion.
The plunder was fun, and I actually laughed when the three girls started singing xD

Interesting Lynn wants to kidnap the old club president.

4/5 Good episode :)

It turned out better than expected and all that food

Okay, quick question: Who's the odd one?


I really loled at those outfits XD Cosplay Pirates

But the people were entertained and that's what counts. The flower-fairy even got hit on XD

New plot about the former yacht club president looks intriguing. GO, COSPLAY PIRATES!

I really do hope these cosplay attacks don't become the norm even though they are kinda entertaining once in a while.

Lynn turns out to have a previously hidden agenda. Judging from the preview Jenny Dolittle seems to be yet another royal member.

I believe it was a request from Jenny Dolittle that she want to be kinapped by pirates, I think we hear that she would married someone with her own will, that's why she make that request that's what I believe here.

No doubt she is part of a royal member or they wouldn't attack them like that.

Really lame episode. Little girls cosplaying and pirating? Really? Hope next one is better.

In previous eps it was said that Jenny is the heiress of the owner of some galaxy wide known corporation. She is not the royalty.

I wish the last second of the preview for episode 17 kept that detail a secret, now its painfully obvious what its about. Regardless, episode 16 was pretty cool. Loved the actual pirate job and the ones being pirated comments and excitement. cosplay was odd but hilarious

I think Lynn is definitely my favorite of the students.

Marika? XD
but there are probably few outfits for her also
and it may be that this will be Bentenmaru selling point - so which outfit should Schnitzer wear and why it should be flower-fairy <3

next episode seems interesting - some firing and action
but president asking her friends to do something a bit dangerous
I don't know what to think about it

Great episode, enjoying noobish pirating quite a lot, at least girls don't look like they're making fun of Marika everytime she's around anymore, it kind of annoyed me.

I'm not sure if it was mentioned in one of previous episode, but i knew it'd have something to do with arranged marriage of the former president, Jeznny. Seeing how close she is with Lynn i'd really want to see a yuri end for them. At least excitingly looking next episode, i hope it just won't end in a stupid way.

That's a trick question, right?

As most of you know I usually enjoy this show, but when that mob appeared at the top of the stairs to the ball room around Marika I got an urge to go soak my head in turpentine.

Oh, well, not a big deal I suppose. At least the girls have been getting experience handling the ship. Next episode looks promising. It looks like somebody, maybe even Jenny herself, has asked Lynn to snatch Jenny way from an arranged marriage. Looks like somebody else takes exception to this and starts shooting. Maybe the interstellar incident I was expecting this mob to trigger may happen after all ;)

Cosplay Pirates, I am satisfied. This anime is so easy to watch, quite entertaining but also refreshing. Can't wait for the next episode, quite interested in finding out what Lynn wants with Jenny.

Chiaki is funny too. Her face turning read at eating curry was gold. She also has a surprising mother side to her quoted by Marika.

Also, new ending sounds good.

The pirating part was fucking lame. Seriously, is it pirating or is it trick or treat? I really hope it doest happen again.

Rest of the episode was pretty good, kidnapping the old club president huh? Can't wait to see what's going to happen.

3/5

Being raided by a bunch of high school girls is a dream and some people are still complain about there way of pirating.
Sure pirating would normally go allot more violent but i like this way of peaceful pirating it's a way of entertainment for them after all.
And the people there entertaining are also the ones there raiding normally you would not hurt the ones your entertaining since it will lead to mayor money claims.
Violent pirate raids just doesn't fit this anime.

I guess the former president is being forced to marry someone she doesn't want to marry it's the only conclusion i can come up with why Lynn would want to kidnap her.

SAAAAA, KAIZAKO JIKAN DAYO????????????

Ok so the current Yacht Club lesbian Lynn has a job for Marika and it is to kidnap Jenny Dolittle, I wonder if it is because Lynn being lesbian is in love with Jenny hire the services of the Bentenmaru to crash the wedding?

I want to see some action though, and the next episode should have that according to the preview.
Looking forward to the next episode.

Yeah this was exactly what I was thinking. >_> They are all laughing and smiling while cosplaying in random uniform just didn't fit at all imo. Though I guess I wouldn't mind getting raided by highschool girls like this irl lol.

Looks like Jenny has some marriage problems huh, and this girl crew is going to stick around for at least another job. More silliness and stuff I guess. Hope this job won't last for too long cause I sorta want to see the old crew back in action. :p

I'm really torn on that one. On one hand, they finally eliminated the last traces of that pirate feel and turned it into a complete farce. On the other hand, I'd love to get raided like that so it makes sense that the mission was a success ^^ In fact, if I get rich some day, I'd go on a cruise and hire a bunch of Japanese school girls to do the same :-P

And I still can't get over how ridiculously cute Ai is. I know her headgear is just a cheap trick to make her more moe, but it's super-effective nonetheless.

As a weird side note, I like how they show those slightly creepy reactor hatches whenever they speak about the reactors. Many directors surely wouldn't have done that because it's kinda pointless, but I think it adds a certain feel to the ship :-) Well, whatever ^^

I prefer the original ED, it's really catchy.

Their "day job" is entertainers. They take on contract jobs arranged through the shipping companies' insurance agents to have licensed 'pirates' raid luxury cruise ships for the enjoyment of the very wealthy passengers looking for a Disney Land type experience. It pays the bills when the government or some other agency doesn't have actual jobs for them to perform.

So, I know this is fairly pointless to ask this as I doubt I'll get a reasonable and non-insulting answer, but if that's the way you feel about the show why are you wasting your time watching it?

That stuff are an embarrassment to the word pirating. Is like playing a bank thief by going going to the bank and retrieving the money from your own account.
They are better off taking missions from people.

ahh...thanks, you just gave me some reminders of what they talked about when Marika joined the crew.

I'm not the insulting type, despite my criticism of a show.

Because I was told it was the best anime of the Winter 2012 season, with the exception of Natsume Yujinchou Shi. If I'm wasting my time - well, it's my own time. I've watched many horrible shows in the past to completion, so the whole "why waste your time if you hate it so much" excuse is tiring to me. And, besides, Mouretsu Pirates isn't a bad show by any means, but it can be very boring. It's highly technical and the creators have obviously done their research, so I have to applaud it for that. Too bad the characters and storyline aren't able to shine. The characters are far too detached and disconnected from the audience, thanks to the overly technical dialogue. They have their quirks, that's about it. Development is scarce unfortunately. As far as the story is concerned, we're 16 episodes in, and it just seems to be about them taking mission after mission after mission. There's barely even any conflict, the episodes with the princess aside.


I don't hate the show, but I do understand why some people find it dull, and, like Monad has said a few times, they're only playing at being pirates, which is disappointing. My main problem, however, as I've stated above, is the detached characters. They come off as robots sometimes.

Well, I like it, but I wouldn't call it the best of the winter season. ;)

Hmm. It wasn't an excuse, just a question. Nothing more. I often see people post very derogatory comments about shows for the run of the show and it just makes me wonder why. If I don't like something, I've got lots of other things to do (several things besides anime as well) so I drop it and move on.

Other than the "Pirates as Entertainers day job" thing, I don't have the problems with the show you have. But, that's fine. If we all liked the same thing the world would be a boring place.

Jeez, this makes space piracy look way too much fun. Seems like whenever Marika is at the helm, the other ship's victims are loving her presence.

Enjoyable ep.
