Marika just got through watching Ika Musume today.
|More adventures with Captain Marika headed your way. Lately with Mouretsu Pirates, it seems like they are following a basic “training to become a pirate captain arc” and I am fine with that. I also worked on some pirates fan art and I plan on drawing more. Anyway time to get started with this episode review.Plot this week continues with Marika learning the ropes of pirating from Misa, Kane and the other Bentenmaru crew members; however, a mysterious girl sneaks aboard their ship while on an important mission.|
Marika-“Pew pew pew! I just destroyed those lame ass aliens yo!”
Starting off our pirate adventure this week, we start with Marika sliding down some tubes to start a dangerous mission, but something seems off about this quest. Everything goes quite smooth for her until she gets attacked by a massive group of ships. She begins to panic and tells herself to calm down…and magically wakes up in the classroom with Mami shaking her. Oh man don’t you hate when you are having a dream about being a pirate and someone wakes you up? I know I do.
Marika-“Damn I was having a blast in that dream, maybe I should smoke some more space weed.”
Mami-“Dude, stop stealing my stash of space grass.” Marika-“Sorry bro, can I borrow some?”
After that amazing dream, Marika talks with Kane and Misa about her failing grades. While they chat, Kane almost tells her she should just drop out, but Marika protests and tells them she has no desire to drop out. You go super cute space girl! She also continues to work at the maid café… Yes, she wants to keep working and stealing from the rich on the side. That leaves me wondering how much money does she actually have right now? Or does she even get to keep any of that money they steal?
Kane-“It’s time you admit you have a problem, Marika.” Marika-“I know right? I totally have a problem with math.”
While Marika works, she gets a message from Misa to prepare for a new mission, but she is technically taking a break from her pirating. However, this is a high paying job and Marika decides to go ahead with the raid. Back at the café, Mami gets a visit from Chiaki. Ku ku ku…does someone miss their crazy pirate partner? It is clear she misses something about Marika or she’s just spying on her? While Chaiki visits, she goes on a short “date” with Mami and learns some new details about Ririka and Marika’s special relationship.
Chiaki-chan is ultra moe today.jpeg Mami-“Ice cream for dinner tonight! Wooooo!!”
Marika-“What am I even looking at? I am so confused.” Misa-“Shhh, I am trying to sleep.”
Enjoy the date, you two, but we have to go back into space with the Bentenmaru and Marika “leading” the crew through battle. They take on three small ships aka “giant purple floating swords” and one large ship full of more rich-people-excited-to-be-raided, but Marika has a hard time keeping up with everything going on all at once. The three attacking ships ignore the warnings from the Bentenmaru two times and magically after they fire on three ships, they stop fighting and surrender. I guess they got scared and decided “Fine! You can totally raid us now because we are bored.”
Marika-“EHHHH! Don’t start the super fun time explosion without me!”
Marika-“Maybe if I dream about winning, I can actually win.”
Marika is tripping hardcore this week.
Kane-“Yarr, I loves a good laser show during battle!”
Back to Chaiki as she talks to her father for a moment and quickly stops talking to him as his daughter and jumps to Captain sir! It seems like Chaki was given orders to stay where she is. I wonder what that was about… hopefully, we learn more about that soon. Anyway, after successfully raiding another ship, Marika takes a short break and prepares to study, but gets called to the bridge learning someone decided to sneak aboard the Bentenmaru… Who could this mystery person be? None other than a princess character of course! The episode ends shortly after Marika hears a girl’s voice.
Marika is tired from her wacky space adventures
Marika-“Are you squidding with me? I was about to watch more anime.”
Misa-“I think it wants a hug.” Marika-“Forget that! I don’t hug radioactive children.”
Extra pirate fun
It is a hard life for an ex-pirate.
Marika-“I totally cleared that box! AH CRAP! Is that a pit of snakes?!”
The face of a hardcore LoL player. Watch out! She is deadly.
Mami-“We are going to be best friends forever!” Chiaki-“Unless we are surrounded by zombies…you will die.”
Marika is the best Jedi…
Marika-“Being excited and hyper all the time is tough work, time for a cold one.”
So this was a strange episode this week, especially with that dream start. It was amazing and and I totally thought it was all real, but something seemed really off about it like Marika being all pro on a solo mission? I was waiting for it to turn into a whole time jump thing; like she was doing the pirate stuff for months… Thankfully this was a small peek into how she will eventually changes into a professional pirate captain. I loved that Mami had more lines this week! Yeah most probably hate that girl’s voice…every time I hear her I can’t help but think about Maka from Soul Eater. It was odd to see her hanging out with Chiaki-chan. I would think those two wouldn’t have much to talk about.
It seems like captain Marika is having a tough time balancing her school, pirate, work and social life with her friend Mami…I do like that Mami is sticking beside her best friend. In any other show the best friend would cry and bitch that her other friend is out doing stuff without them. Thank god Mami doesn’t appear to be the super attached type, or will she?! But she did look alright hanging out with Chiaki for the afternoon. Speaking of Chiaki, she had a parfait and ice cream with Mami? I guess that girl has a weakness for ice cream? And another girl that loves to eat forever is the super hacker Coorie aboard the Bentenmaru? Whoa that girl can eat anything! Luffy, is this your daughter?
Enough Mami and Chiaki going out on the town, the whole Marika running around in her pirate uniform! So was she taking a short cut to the bridge? And what is in all those giant boxes? I assume it is the loot from all the raids… I did laugh watching Marika, when she just started to relax and suddenly got the call to return to the bridge again. The “battle” scene was cool and it was also kind of dull at the same time, but I hope Marika learns how to be more aggressive in those situations like Misa told her. However, she is still learning new stuff every day.
I swear if she has elf ears I will laugh…
Princess girls make great transfer students….
