So in this context, I think the new title means more like "Wow, Space Pirates". They retain their miniskirts.
When the title "Mouretsu" was first introduced, I read at some random Japanese website that it is "Oyaji Kusai no Title" (Smell like old fart title). Even at Yaraon blog which I took the Newtype image, there is a similar comment. Hope the casts and staffs will not be dispirited in case if the anime does not perform well.

With 2 cour length , we may get anime original episodes

So I guess this is the only way they can even attempt to get space opera back on TV eh? Are they sure they have enough attractive females though?

Because as Kaisos Erranon points out they are sadly kind of a risk in todays kind of crappy, shallow taste, lowest common denominator anime market (which is slightly improving in terms of variety with the recent season but apparently still all too quick to mine the Light Novel hit list for hopes of finding something that can be a hit as an anime since very few studios can make anything from scratch anymore let alone a hit) so unless you add a hook/gimmick that's popular with todays otaku...like say cute attractive female characters out the wazoo, a school setting, and/or mecha you're probably just throwing good money after bad and very few if any people are going to be paying attention. It's really sad but anime productions, but for a few studios with lots of capital to burn, are sort of struggling to distinguish themselves from the Light Novel/Visual Novel market (something it existed long before I might add and should have no reason to be so unabashedly beholden to for source material) and what's popular there lately and I'm still not sure it can break free and be it's own thing again. At least not right now.

So apparently today (11-11-11) is Mikako Komatsu (Marika) and Chiaki Omigawa (Mami) birthday. From Moretsu and Satou twitter. It looks like there is going to be an announcement for both Mouretsu and Rinne no Lagrange at their official site at 17:00

Happy birthday to both of them. I enjoyed Joey (Heroman) and Hotori (SoreMachi), and them working with many of my favorite seiyuu in Mouretsu is indeed a welcome

Edit: Might as well mention this first. Like LOGH, there is going to be narration to help further the story. The novel is averagely thick because of the explanations. And yeah, expect some high school cliches like transfer student, clubs activities etc. Although it is categorized as Space Opera anime, I hope people will not take this series overly serious like LOGH or expecting ship battle every seconds, because you may be dissapointed , though the author did say that he let the director to do as he likes

Eidt II:
There is going to be an event on November 27th Link
Title: Satou Tatsuo Produces! Mouretsu Uchuu Kaizoku vs Rinne no Lagrange in Shinjuku Loft Plus One

Hmm. Details regarding the screening [Link]

Date: December 22nd
Time: Floor Opening: 1830 Screening: 1900 - 2200
Location: Shinjuku Wald 9

Komatsu Mikako and Omigawa Chiaki will be cosplaying their respective character. Besides Satou, there is going to be more guests (I guess it must be Sasamoto, duh. They didn't premier screening Gundam UC without inviting Fukui)

5 episodes huh? I think they're going to finish vol 1. I can't hardly wait 2ch and Japanese anime blogs' reactions .

Can we at least have an official trailer with voice acting included? I just can't imagine Marika's voice if Mikako is going to sound like Kotori from Zexal. And I hope the main casts on the Newtype spread a page before will not sound like guys , because the headline was "Handsome Girls of the New Era"

I just wait that angela will perform the opening theme because it really fit with this anime. I can't imagine a opening theme of Moretsu without angela !

From Akiman's twitter. [Link]
Spoiler for Marika:


Edit: Saw Part I of Loft Plus One Event . Great PV with new scenes, and Mikako's Character song was used. I literally went "すげえええええ" when Odette II opened it's Solar Sails. Oh and we got a quick shot of Marika with the saber. If I'm hearing this correctly, the anime will follow up to 3rd volume, and then will go original route (?).
Mouretsu Pirates will start the earliest on January 7th on MBS and Tokyo MX, with other channel on later dates. Some images that I saved from the streaming. Sorry for the shitty quality :P

This could be good. I haven't seen much non-mecha space opera other than Cowboy Bebop and the first Captain Harlock TV series, but it's nice to see a new entry in a genre that's out of the ordinary for recent anime.

I wonder if anyone else noticed that when the name of the series showed up in the PV, there was an English subtext that read "Bodacious Space Pirates". I assume that that's the official English title. That's quite a funny title to say out loud.

Saw PV. Had never heard about it. I need this about now-ish. Tickled my sci-fi nerves bad and it's been long since I watch a space opera anime.

The original title of Miniskirt Space Pirates is better than the new one.

My hopes are a bit deflated after seeing the PV. It's just not as fun or fresh or audacious as I hoped. There's more of the standard otaku fetish moments than I would have liked to have seen. Really, it looks more like an updated Angel Links than anything else.

Uh. What? Could you list all of the standard otaku fetish moments? This was pretty much as tasteful as anyone could have possibly hoped for.

I'm talking about things like the school life bit and the maid outfits and the nimble little ship. In and of themselves, they're completely harmless, but it means that the show itself is going to be limited in ways that we've probably seen a lot of. Instead of a show about awesome pirate adventures in miniskirts, the show seems more about telling the same old otaku-favored stories with the space pirate stuff serving as a backdrop.

I think the school life bit and the maid cafe was simply to show what our heroine was doing before she left to have awesome pirate adventures in miniskirts. Its quite clear she was learning to become a space pilot so of course its going to show her kicking ass in a space fighter. I have not read the LN but I am sure that its going to be less otaku-favored then you fear. Hell if nothing else its going to be old school otaku-favored.
