Like I said, I was waiting for what's about to happen next. And it's not like I didn't enjoy the series at all. It's just I didn't really feel much for any of the characters besides Jenny, or the situations they're involved in.

Competition for Marika's attention is a no holds bared affair in the world of Miniskirt Pirates.

As for ep 16

The middle of the episode had me cringing through the whole thing... not because it was bad, it was highly amusing, but cringing at the sound of Marika's and the Bentenmaru's hard fought professional reputation coming crashing to the ground. Damn you Mami (good job Mami!) you and your bizarre fashion hawking. Of course, despite this, the job was completed successfully, and the Letter of Marquee is safe, because things work out when you're a pirate.

Next up. Dread Pirate Marika is displeased that Jenny isn't getting any screen time, this will not stand. Time for some corporate raiding!
Ugh... that part was painful for me to watch, I had to take it in 30 sec intervals. I was actually filled with some dread that some yahoo was going to make trouble since these cosplay girls weren't all that dangerous looking, and that Marika was going to have to get violent.

Then the singing started and I realized it was just going to be a farce.

Good note on robbing the kitchen supplies though.

I know! Mami! What were you thinking? Marika, you need to start giving Mami some better direction instead of just letting her do her own thing. Just make her part of your official crew as the costume designer and make sure she's supervised. Drag her off in to space too.

As for Jenny rescue... well yes, you got to save Jenny but...

This is no time be having your A team out of commission.

I like the girls and all, but this is not a rookie mission, you need to kidnap her without anyone figuring out you're the ones doing it. Otherwise there will be trouble later.

I completely agree with this. Even though they are your friends, Marika, this is no time to have rookies as your crew, even if it can't be helped.

Things were looking pretty interesting between Marika and Chiaki in the Captain's quarters, but then, suddenly Serenity!

Did anyone else notice that the third bunk that Marika checked on had 5 girls and 4 bunks? Hmmm...

(I'm willfully ignoring that the first bunk had only three girls and the 5th girl in the third bunk probably has abed in the first bunk)

Spoiler for And now it's time for Chiaki pictures.:


Fight for your love, Lynn-chan!

Unfortunately, from the sound of things there is no time to wait for the regular crew to be out of quarantine. And breaking them out by force would probably cause a number of problems on its own.

Either that or they're hot bunking: two people are assigned to the same bunk but different shifts. When A is on shift, B is off-shift and asleep; when B is on-shift, A is in the bunk. That's how submarines manage their crews, since they're crewed round the clock - which would probably be in effect for Bentenmaru as well.

At least Lynn got a nice costume, though I think it would've been better if it looked a bit more like Captain Harlock's.

Because she's in love with Lynn. Don't deny it, you know it to be true. Give in to the Yuri Side.

I thought the director was following a policy of no romance/yuri?

That's true and makes total sense. However, the entire Yacht Club was present on the bridge, so I don't think they're hot bunking.

No, he never said anything about yuri. He didn't specify anything at all actually. Only that the story would focus on friendship instead of romance. Personally, I think he was talking about avoiding these sort of subplots that include the protagonist and his/her love interests and last the entire duration of the series.

Now, the Jenny rescue mission will take one or two episode at most to be resolved, and it's a rescue mission so it doesn't have nothing to do with romance per se. All we (the yuri fans I mean) are hoping for is for ONE particular scene to be included. That's all.

Hmm... do you have a timestamp on that? I must have missed it. It's important that I keep records of these things.

Doesn't look it, from the scene with Lynn. They've got one person standing watch on the bridge, that's all.

Ok, that pirate raid was comically awkward. I had the pause the video several time to look away and laugh. And finally. What we all been waiting for....the Yuri romance between Jenny and Lynn. Can't wait for the next episode! Fight on Bentenmaru!

The liner crew was somewhat put out by the rookie pirates, but after the passangers warmed up to them and all went well, things were happy. At least Lynn's blaster was there to remind people, "Hello, Pirates". Also Show seems to be pulling favors for Marika.

This also looks to be the same liner crew Chiaki raided while Marika was busy. Even mentions that the voice print matched so it wasn't a fake this time. (Though I think they really enjoyed Chiaki's over the top raid).


That newbie...the littliest First Year/helmsman. She always has those little dog ear-like flaps...on anything she wears.

It is too bad they didn't have Chiaki and the Princesses join Marika...or stage them as the plants to either try to fight Marika, or be kidnapping victums. Actually a staged rivalry between Captain Marika (Red Head) and "Captain Marika" (Dark Queen) would be very entertaining.


And yes, Mami needs to set a style rather than go random. That or someone needs to take the sowing needle away from that girl.
