Misa bringing in the sexy this week! HELLO,NURSE!
Ahoy there, Mouretsu pirate fans! So are you still having fun with this series so far? I know I sure love watching it every week. We have finally reached the fourth episode and things are starting to slowly develop with Marika’s future as a pirate captain.
Plot this week follows Marika revealing her big secret about being a Pirate Captain to the members of the Space Yacht Club, and the crew of the Odette II prepares for their first real battle.
Jenny-“You two are not very sneaky…” Kane-“Tell me about it, no seriously tell me!”
This week, things start off with Kane helping out Jenny, the president of Space Yacht Club with a new problem. She scanned the area around the Odette II and found three ships nearby without active transponders. Maybe they are sleeping, Jenny? Ever think about that? Well, Kane tries to throw Jenny off and takes a look for the three mysterious ships. He figures out one of the ships is the Bentenmaru and Misa floats off to warn the Bentenmaru about the other ships in the area. I was really surprised no one actually heard them talking about the pirate ship, but I think Jenny figured out the truth behind Kane and Misa already.
Marika-“Sooooo when is the hot yuri scene?” Chiaki-“Not gonna happen…I am not that easy.”
Marika-“Just kidding! Wait, what are you doing with that gun, Chiaki-chan? And why are you loading it?”
Jenny leads the girls, who continue to plot a course for the inner planets of the Tau Ceti system, and join Marika and Chiaki after working together once again. The two girls start to wonder why they are always paired up? I think it might have something to do with their names at the top of the character list? Maybe Kane is hoping for some yuri action? Anyway, while the two of them work, Marika and Chiaki talk about transponders; basically transponders contain every bit of information you need about the ship and they are required by law to keep them on at all times.
Marika was having way too much fun, but I would have more fun smashing that button like her.
After that short history lesson, Marika decides to do a scan aka GIANT EXPLODING BALL OF LIGHT to detect the hidden ships. The scan pretty much requires Marika to smash the button, sending out a massive shock wave filling the area. The whole scanning for enemies scene was just like watching Marika PUNCH THAT BUTTON; man, was that the best ever. After abusing that button a few times, Marika managed to find something on radar, which was a very old Pleiades-class battleship called the Alcyon, a ship that went down over one hundred and twenty years ago! Leaving Marika and Chaiki thinking about finding a ghost ship. Oh are you watching the current One Piece arc, Marika? So the two girls decide to ask Kane for help, but he just thinks they are being paranoid and ignores them for now…
Kane-“Ghost ship you say? Was Johnny Depp on board?” Marika-“….” Chiaki-“Surrounded by idiots.”
I wonder if pirate space ghosts like cute girls? After Kane successfully dodges the girls’ questions, Marika decides to tell the crew about her secret of becoming a pirate captain. But it appears that Jenny and Lynn already figured that out long ago. However, Misa discovered that the captain and vice captain of the Space Yacht Club both have a few records of their own. Jenny is the daughter of a rich tycoon so she has the money for the club, Lynn was placed on probation for hacking and several other club members have their own set of special problems. Jenny then asks Marika to setup a battle plan and lead the girls. The episode ends with Lynn floating off to prepare for some electronic warfare on her own computer…I would leave that job to the pro hacker; sorry Marika, you need more practice.
Marika-“Just don’t make any eye contact and she will go away.” Chiaki-“She can hear you by the way.”
Marika-“HELL YA! WE WILL OWN THOSE SONS OF BITCHES! Err… I mean…YARRRRRR!”
Jenny-“So you drew these battle plans?” Marika-“Yep! Do you like them? I worked hard on them…”
Jenny-“Did you draw them with crayons?” Marika-“Wait…no…maybe I DID… SO WHAT?!”
Lynn-“Good luck, suckers, I am going to play some Skyrim! See you in a few days…”
Extra pirate fun
Kane-“Hello ladies, how about we go somewhere quiet and do some treasure hunting?”
Chiaki- “FUUUUU– Now we can’t get any awesome space kuroneko cosplay photos…”
Space raves are insane! Just ask Marika.
Misa tries to distract us with DEM legs…
Jenny-“ALL HAIL THE GIANT SPACE BOWLING BALL!”
Well, that was certainly a very slow paced episode…all that dramatic build up to the first battle and then nothing! Thankfully I still remember this series has twenty-six episodes to work with. So, did anyone else out there feel the reveal of Marika’s pirate secret, to be somewhat weak? Of course I really don’t know what I wanted to expect, but I thought it was really cool to find out Jenny and Lynn both had interesting backgrounds and a few other girls. This leaves the door open for Jenny to become a captain of the Odette II, or not? Because the opening video shows Jenny and Lynn with Marika and the remaining crew of the Bentenmaru…
Another great moment this week involved Marika smashing that button to scan for the hidden ships. I thought it was really cool to see the technology in action. Yes, it was more like a modern submarine searching for enemies using sonar, but I could tell Marika was just having a good time smashing that button over and over again. Lately I have been seeing a few bloggers comment that Marika and Chiaki teaming up is like watching Captain Kirk and Spock on Star Trek. I can agree to that statement because I have seen episodes and some of their movies with my dad, but watching them together is always great just to see the character interaction between them.
Marika is cool and all but damn, Misa looked good in this episode and it did not require a single pantsu shot. The money is in that outfit of hers and of course lots of thigh high action…I think I said this before but she is rocking that Nia hairstyle from TTGL very well, blond with blue highlights? WONDERFUL! Speaking of thigh highs…Lynn, did you steal those from Merry Nightmare? And I learned Lynn is voiced by Hikasa Yoko! Maybe we will get a few dozen character songs from her. So, Tofu and other Yoko fans are you watching? I think so…anyway cute girls doing awesome stuff in space this week! Hopefully things get interesting with the Odette II entering battle.
Marika decides to rock twin tails next week! Maybe?
Marika and the Space Yacht Club prepare for battle! YARR YOU BETTER BE WATCHING…
