The yacht club finishes its final exams and begins its maiden voyage in space.
Taking Their Time
Was this episode boring? A bit. It certainly wasn’t bodacious. The creators sure are taking their sweet time about turning Marika into a pirate. Since this show is going to be two seasons, I think it will probably work out in the end. But I am getting impatient.
They made it seem like we were getting somewhere with the electronic warfare, only to turn it into an anticlimax as the power went out and the other ship ran away. The anticlimax did fit the theme though. What differentiates Moretsu Pirates from other space shows, I feel, is how down to earth it is. They’ve expanded on many of the more mundane details of the setting: power supplies in the space station, expanding the ship’s sails, the depressurization process, communication systems, and tying up hair inside helmets. Having criminals flee when caught is a part of this pattern. We’d never see this kind of detail in, say, Gundam or Macross.
The part of this show I like the least is everything involving their teacher and the nurse. Especially the nurse! They’re so boring and they always sound and look so smug! You should never trust someone who smiles all the time. I hope the pirate crew just sent the two members who placed last in the popularity contest.
