That's going to be harder to maintain now that she's cruising around on a starship.

I know it goes with the Hakuoh Space Yacht Club, but every time I hear that I think of Jenny. I guess that isn't a surprise since Jenny was a big part of the Yacht Club for the 1st half of this series.
Not to mention that this track has a very strong Celtic feel, with the violins, rhythm and melody, which reinforces Jenny's Irish-ness (particularly her gold four-leaf clover choker). And that prior to the club boarding Bentenmaru, every scene in which this song played had Jenny involved in some way or another.

That's what the obstacle course is for.

I think that the Celtic music along with the subtle creaks and groans the Bentenmaru makes as she travels through space really drive home the feel of being on a sailing ship of old. I'm quite sure this is intentional.

She still goes to school and she runs between captain's quarters and ship's bridge i.e. the "can't be late for piracy" for scene.

Mobirates 16 - ゴーカイにGet it down

I have no idea what a statement like this says about me, but this episode is what I pictured the whole show was going to be like. The cosplay pirates were a whole lot of fun to watch, and seeing Marika stumbling once again with piracy created a good feeling, like the early days of the show. My favorite of the cosplay outfits was probably the full-on dinosaur costume. The others stood out, but that one stood out the most. The Marika/Chiaki scene also had some nice yuri tension to it, but that doesn't compare to what next week looks to entail. I've heard some things about Jenny and Lynn sparingly through this thread, but it looks like the latter is going to kidnap the former from a wedding... probably so she can marry her herself.

I like the direction this show has taken.

So they got the job down without many mistakes. Thanks Mami for the cosplays. So Jenny wants out of her arranged marriage. Or at least its too soon for her to get married. Anyway i should have known better to think Lynn was a spy. Nice job she came up with.

Yes, Lynn, rescue your lover from an arranged marriage using schoolgirl pirates. If you do that, you will supplant Chiaki as the coolest character in the series.

So... finally "the rescue Jenny from shitty marriage" operation is about to begin. Cool, I just hope they will include the Oh so importan scene from after the rescue. Please anime producers, make it happen, I beg you!!

Dragging behind here and only just finished up ep 15 last night ... ah well. I continue to really enjoy the series.

Must admit that I lol'd quite a bit at the crew of the Bentenmaru frantically struggling to write up a "manual" as fast as they could.

I did notice that Marika is starting to voice her actions (or perhaps stage directions). Especially when there are planning to start up the ship. She even says "glance" and does a bunch of talking to herself like things in responce to people answering her questions negatively. It was funny, also with her head tilting.

The Princesses seem to be an odd team (Moon and Chibi). One usually smiling sweetily, the other with a daring look much of the time.

If I were one of the hospitalized Bentenmaru crew members -- I'd turn on one of the surveillance cameras...

Man, Lynn sounded so cool at the end of the episode, with the music from the ending overlapping her declaration that she wanted to "kidnap" Jenny.

Lynn's just too cool. I can't wait for the next episode.

Y'know... that wedding dress and all that make-up doesn't suit Jenny at all.

Oh snap,you know shit is about to get real when they play "black holy" as the ED

Chiaki's face at the end says it all.
Appart from that cliffhanger there wasn't much that got me excited this episode,but I guess that was just practice for what's going to happen next.

However I wonder how the bentemaru crew is gonna react
Crew:Hey Marika,good job now you can just take it easy until we're all recovered
Marika:Actualy we're about to go save Jenny
Crew:


Well,really looking forward to next week,should be fun!

Random question:are the girls all alone this time around?I know main deck members are in isolation but we havn't seen a trace of other random crew members we saw sometimes in earlier episodes.

One would assume the entire ship's crew was put into isolation. Just in seperate rooms. The Bridge crew officers got one room.

When I hear that silver hair with a dot on the forehead singing, I knew right away that she was the voice actress for Ritsu from K-on .

And damn you Gruier!! We missed on our chance to see Chiaki change her clothes!! Sigh.
