About Bodacious Space Pirates Complete Collection DVD

Bodacious Space Pirates Complete Collection contains all 26 episodes.

Most families have a skeleton or two in the closet, but Marika is understandably shocked to learn that what her family has been hiding is a skull and crossbones! While the revelation that her late father was a space pirate would have been earthshaking enough for most teenage girls, discovering that he was the captain of the notorious pirate ship Benten Maru will change Marika's life forever. You see, pirating is a family business, and she's just inherited the position of captain - and her father's former crew is quite intent on making sure Marika accepts the job!

What's a girl to do? Well, if you're a high school student whose prior total naval experience has been working at the space yacht club, there's really only one moral dilemma that has to be resolved: are pirates allowed to wear really short mini-skirts?

Capable Girls Take On The Power!

by -

This is a delightful anime that has romance, characters, political machinations, history lessons and, oh, yes, that's it: space pirates. I wasn't sure what to expect of this and the "high school girls as space pirates" really didn't excite me. Nor did I select this title. And yet I'm so glad to have watched it. The space pirate angle is well handled. The relationships are often more implied rather than in your face. The characters are appealing. While the characters are pretty and attractive there is no in-your-face fan service. Rather, the characters are capable and effective, even if they start inexperienced.

The situations vary from silly and absurd to dangerous and stern, but they tie and hold together as a cohesive whole. While the progress of the story was somewhat transparent and the half-pirate/half-school girl uniform always felt silly it did not reduce this show's appeal. The best anime I've watched in quite a while.

Working through the series slowly, but it is an engaging story, fun action and some great hijinx! who knew humans could code faster than a computer!!!!! hehehe. IF you like pirates, if you like space battles... this has something for you! If you like anime with cute girls, and brainy girls, have at it!

Great sci-fi space adventure


First, the title might have had a better translation. It's accurate enough, but most native english speakers associate the word "Bodacious" with the fourth or so definition. If you're expecting sexy, flirtatious, loose women, this is not the anime for you.

Bodacious, in this case, is more, "bold, brazen, or outstanding"

As other reviews have said, this title is half slice-of-life comedy, half sci-fi space adventure.

My wife and I enjoyed this show a lot. It's got comedy, space-ships, action, adventure, and a great cast of diverse characters. When my kids get into their pre-teens, I'd have no problem with them watching this show.

My only complaint? I wish there were several more seasons.

Ridiculous Space Pirates


I bought this show thinking it would be a fun, witty pirates in space show and after all of the 5 star reviews I thought I was in for a treat. I bought the complete show and the movie. I guess it just wasn't for me. I found it overly silly, ridiculous and not funny, it was more just dumb. Like some 3rd grader wrote it. I am beyond disappointed and won't EVER go by reviews again. I spent a LOT of money on this show and the movie. I wasn't expecting Captain Harlock here but at least something more like Nadesico, Captain Tylor or even Tank Police or Dirty Pair. I say rent it first.

Buy Gundam instead


Terrible Anime! Idiotic show with stupid humor and NO story, the pirates rob people (who seem happy to be robbed?) and they fly alot, not much happens. Save your cash and buy something like Gundam from this company!

All visuals and no Soul


I have to agree with the other reviewer on here. I too am disappointed in this show. For me an anime is more than just visuals. However, if you dig visuals with NO story, NO plot and zero character development then this is the show you've been looking for!!! It's a brainless show with good visuals.....You've been warned!

I'm on the Side of Loving It

If you want a stupid show with nothing but explosions and angst, this is NOT the anime for you. If you remember this is an action adventure COMEDY, you should be happy.

If you like stories with characters who actually think, space combat that makes sense, VERY cool ship design, and humor, you'll enjoy this anime.

If I had one complaint it's minor. I felt there was lots of backstory we weren't given, especially about the Letters of Marque and the war that lay behind their original issue. However, there was enough background to make the stories work.
