She obviously is not telling the adults the whole story. It's just a "personal, jump capable yacht" that will expand the type of ships the club can work with. No need to mention messy details about it being military in origin.

And so... like in the Bentenmaru... bring in the line:

"What does this button do?"

But the dinosaur costume went over so well. I don't think the girl took it off once since the Princess Apricot raid.

It is a good thing Marika is equal parts nice, naive and cunning, otherwise the school ground would be littered with craters as she takes out people she doesn't like with an orbital bombardment.
Well, Marika is an honors student i.e. she's not like the other pirate girl named Fam from Last Exile. Marika keeps her activities legal.

Nice ending to this is little arc.

High Schoolgirls blackmailing an old ugly suit wearing oji-san...hmm

Wow, I find it hiliarious that Marika gave the latest military combat fighter craft to the Yach Club. I can't wait for an episode about this it should be full of laughs.

Now that I've watched episode 18 a second time, here's my take on the good, the bad and the interesting.

By which, the constant question is asked. Given the situation, what will Marika do next? This is by far, the most compelling aspect of this series.

I really don't see the problem with Jenny changing back to her wedding dress. She's on a raid with the cosplay pirates, after all.

What was disappointing: they hinted at a bold plan to deal with the uncle once and for all, but:
- they were surprised when he caught up;
- they had no contingency plan for it;
- they had to be handed the weapon against him by the adults;
- for someone who they say will soon get out and pick up right where he left off, he folded pretty easily.

I expected he'd be caught in shady business, but I wanted it to be serious enough that he'd risk serious prison time for it. And that Jenny would blackmail him into giving up all his shares and position in exchange for a pension and a quiet retirement somewhere that isn't a salt mine.

Glad this arc is over, I thought it was the weakest yet. Can we get the real Bentenmaru crew back? Also, is this where the series goes anime original?

For a start, Robert Dolittle didn't even exist in vol 3 . So whatever scenes that he's in did not happen in the book.

So things that are different from the novel, for this episode at least
Spoiler for F**k you Satelight :P:
For something that airs in midnight Japan, they sure didn't want to show the girls drinking alcohol, and afraid to insert the words "sex orgy", drugs
"Is he gay?" was one of the comment from 2chan during the scene when the girls were discussing about Junay, and the girls called him "Bimyou".

Edit: The scene when Junay was giving his speech reminded me about the earlier stage in Metal Gear Solid 2, where you have to pass the assembly of soldiers just to take pictures of the Ray.

More from Matsumoto Noriyuki. Odette II novel version. So that's how the "single crystal" part looks like.
Spoiler for Odette II:

Female empowerment is great and all but do they always have to do it by putting down the other gender? It's just a real killjoy and I thought they were doing pretty well before this episode (Well there were undertones of it in the previous episode but that was nothing compared to this.)

Marika saving Jenny and her love from a life of misery.
This time even the real crew pitched in.
Jenny's uncle sure is persistent with the pursuit.
Chiaki was just awesome with that gun ^^
Broadcasting the whole thing live was a great idea to change the uncle's mind.

It's not that she changed back into it, it's just that she suddenly was in it as if she'd never taken it off. And that was before they had any plan about boarding anyone, so she didn't have any reason to keep up appearances for at that point.

Besides, she looks a lot better without it and without all the makeup. Ugh.

You don't announce on live broadcast that you're going to use your political connections to weasel your way out of illegal weapons trafficking and treason charges.

No, you just deny them, denounce the "evidence" as fabrication.
