Miniskirt Uchuu Kaizoku [Light Novel]

Info taken from Baka-Tsuki.
Mini-Skirt Space Pirates (Miniskirt Uchuu Kaizoku - ミニスカ宇宙海賊 (ミニスカパイレーツ))


Quote:
The source material for the Winter 2012 anime Moretsu Pirates also known as Bodacious Space Pirates.

Publication data:
Written by Yūichi Sasamoto
Published by Asahi Shimbun
Demographic Male [Seinen?]
Original run October 2008 ongoing
Volumes 7
Noticed that there wasn't a novel thread for it before(and searched under "pirates" and "Kaizoku" so unless I severely missed something, I'm not duplicating a thread). I would like to have some clarification on the demographic on whether it is shounen or seinen.

Ummm, what should I post here?
But first of all, thank you for creating the thread
For a start, the line in the novel was 長生き、 するんだよ "Live a long life" (Epilog vol 1 pg 299), just like in the anime.
I didn't really expect fansubber to include Spock famous words

Ossan, jiji

Don't ask for translation though, as I already stated my stand

And how about start learning the language already? Mini-skirt Space Pirates and other novels from Asahi Shimbun are not the ones to enjoy sales like Haganai, OreImo, IS, Horizon and the likes that come under Kadokawa Groups. I doubt it even with the anime the novel sales will be any different. Not to mention if the anime even sells in the first place.
Heck. Sasamoto's longest novel, ARIEL, was published under the Sonorama labels, who became bankrupt and saved by Asahi Shimbun.
I'll post summaries if no one want to do them. But don't expect it early, as I'm really busy right now. I haven't even watch latest episode of Rinne
Am I allowed to lobby my friends from BT (Teh Ping, Kira, kuroishinigami) to support not translating this :P

Yes I also download novel and manga raws. But I'm also a baka gaijin who will buy the Tankoubon of gundam manga that I already read in my Gundam Ace, and novels that I found interesting. I got my own reason not to post in F/Z or Haganai or Monogatari, even though I did read some of the books

I would like to have an official link for the light novels(which I can edit into the first post).

I won't ask for a translation, although I do hope that Baka-Tsuki does decide to translate, so I can enjoy this more than I am already(and I am loving this series). But I started this thread so that those who have read the novels have a place to post about them. I do appreciate the light novel comparison stuff that you are posting to the anime thread.

I shall wait patiently for more novel info! Because I have never writing a fanfic based on such scant details in my life ever, and its getting more unnerving each time I update.

I also shall wait patiently for any more information on the novels. From what I've seen of the anime episodes 1 through 6 and the details that justpassingby has posted in the anime thread, Volume 1 of this series looks awesome. Too bad I can't read Japanese, I'd look for this in Kinokuniya the next time I go to New York City. Although if I had a translation, I'd buy the book as a companion piece.

Anyone know how far the last anime original arcs diverged from the books? I've seen illustrations for book 8 that have Lynn still as the yacht club president, so did the anime go completely off the rails?

Regarding Volume 8 - what would people generally translate the title as? (紫紺の戦魔女) (Google Translate gives 'Battle of bluish purple witch' but I doubt this is entirely accurate)

Edit: Another question, regarding the manga's plotline. What route is it taking? (e.g. adaptation with minor changes, adaptation with major changes, original story etc)

Question

I think that is the case so far, unfortunately.

I've been trying to get information from the Japanese Wikipedia article for the series (http://ja.wikipedia.org/wiki/ミニスカ宇宙海賊), however since I can't read kanji yet, I've had to use Google Translate - as such the information is a bit patchy. I was wondering if it would be OK to check some of this information with people here who are in a position to see if there are any mistakes.

Spoiler for Brief character information for novel characters (possibly inaccurate) from japanese wiki entry:

Spoiler for Brief ship information for novel ships (possibly inaccurate) from japanese wiki entry:

Spoiler for Brief term information for novel terms (possibly inaccurate) from japanese wiki entry:

Spoiler for Brief novel information for the unadapted novels (possibly inaccurate) from japanese wiki entry:

ミニスカ宇宙海賊9 無法の御免状
Miniskirt Space Pirates 9 The License to Lawless is slated for November release. [source]

Another Sasamoto Yuuichi's book, Yousei Sakusen Part IV - Last Letter (END) by Tokyo Sougensha is also scheduled to be on sale in the same month. [source]

When can I be allowed to hope that his first book and ARIEL will be animated, and Mikako-shi is type-casted as Sasamoto's heroines' voices?

Edit: Manga chapter 5 is now available at Nico2 Seiga [link]
