I think I need a refresher on the privateer laws of the Sea of Morningstar.

The Bisque Company is after Marika's privateer license as such the last of her line she is a target for assasination.

Is the Sea of Morningstar issuing Letters of Marque on non-descendants other than the original privateers?

Next ep we see privateer ships being attacked. Possibly connected to Marika's assailants.

In this episode, Marika tells the crew they should use "that" against the attacking company (using Bentenmaru's cannon as they did last episode during the race). Everyone knew what she was talking about aside from Kane, and he was supposed to be the one to have suggested it in the first place. There was another example of this in the previous episode too, where Marika returns to the ship and asks Kane why he's acting so weird (Coach Kane), and he is similarly confused about what she's referring to. Those were red flags for me, because there's no reason for them to include him forgetting things he's done unless there are two different people.
Yep, that's exactly what I was referring to. I did find the scene showing Coach and then Kane on the Bentenmaru immediately after weird as well, but at the time I figured it was just an awkward transition. However, having him not remember what he did as Coach once again struck me as very fishy, especially since everybody else on the ship figured out right away what Marika has in mind. Kane never struck me as the slow type, so I find it pretty suspicious. If it had only happened once, I wouldn't have thought much of it, but that's already the second time.

As has been stated before, he had very little to go on. "That thing you did." is very vague. What thing? Could you be more specific? I'm sure Kane has done lots of things around Marika and is probably wondering which "thing" she's talking about. Then, as has been pointed out before, once he understood what she was talking about, he went into action appropriately.

I got the impression was that someone was jealous she got one, and was going to eliminate her. The pirate hunt next week as well lends to that notion. Someone is destroying the legal pirates, and it might just be misplaced pride, or an old ghost of Morningstar's past coming back to haunt them.

And Kane seems to have something to do with them, too. Maybe his brother as well?

I think there's enough to dub this arc:

Moretsu Pirates II: The Wrath of Kane

The Serenity Cluster is composed of seven systems. Serenity is the capital. The other 6 planets have yet to be named. They are some of oldest colonized worlds.

Chiaki is from Sea of Forrestar, a former Colony Federation planet. It seems the inhabited planets in the Colony Federation were named as seas of their respective stars.

Privateers come from the Colony Federation space... we should call it the Colony Federation Zone of the Galactic Empire.

Their former enemies were from the Stellar Alliance... Stellar Alliance Zone of Galactic Empire.

Humans have been space faring for thousands of years... they've been in space so long that space colonies had space colonies. Sea of Morningstar was at least a second or third generation colony.


So the guy in the hood from the episode 20 is Kane's brother?

I also wonder how Ai was breathing at such a high altitude.
My first reaction is how is she breathing AT ALL, it was very lucky that the planet had a high concentration of oxigen (seems to me the planet is covered with water, so there is no problem of everything burning).

If Mouretsu does get a 2nd season... the series needs a Wiki -- just to keep track of everything.

You got it all wrong: The real winner is Marika's hair stylist. Have you seen her hair stay in place during the drop from the space station? Wonders of science!


Spoiler for Two Kanes!?!:



And for those putting together a list of planets: You might want to note that Calmwind's name originally follows the same pattern as Sea of the Morningstar, Sand of the Red Star and the like. Which have all been flipped during translation, too (e.g. in Japanese sea is the attribute to morningstar, not the other way around), but that's a different matter.


Edit: Okay. Calmwind is written as something that may actually be translated as Calmwind (kanji: wind - calm - star). Just... when it is read, there is an added "no" between the wind and the calm, making the wind an attribute to calm-star and leading to "Kaze no Nagihoshi", I think, "Calm Star of Winds". Other possibility: Kaze no Nagi is one unit, like an attributive sub-clause, describing the star/planet, leading to "Planet where the winds calm down/are calm".

Now, a quick overview of all the planets I remember... Order: JP reading/speaking - anime TL - literal TL

Umi no Akehoshi - Sea of the Morning Star - Sea-y Morning Star (Morning Star of the Sea)
Suna no Akahoshi - Sand of the Red Star - Sandy Red Star (Red Star of Sand)
Umi no Morihoshi - Sea of the Forest Star - Sea-y Forest Star (Forest Star of the Sea)
Kaze no Nagihoshi - Calmwind (other pattern: Wind of the Calm Star) - Windy Calm Star (Calm Star of Winds)

Marika's hair is one of the wonders of the universe, a simple orbital drop like that has no effect on its awesomeness.

Why didn't he know about the weapon? He did, he was just trying to deny it. Note how he quickly "remembered" exactly what it was when push came to shove. Plus, in episode 20 they pretty much say it's Kane's idea.

Who did Kane call? The Bentenmaru, to tell them to ready while he made a dash for the ship. The scene switch between Coach Kane/Helmsman Kane itself is a flashback with a time-lapse. A common editing technique.

Two Kane's introduce more plotholes than one Kane. I'm sticking with one Kane for now.

One Kane will make too many scenes go to waste.

He knew the weapon, of course. But if you follow the conversation you will see he just didn't know what "that time" was about, which is the only reason he couldn't identify the weapon. When Marika told him to stop playing dumb, he was still confused. Confusion lifted only once Schintzer had the weapon ready. Need I continue?

Too lazy for the others ~~

Also. the second Kane is Kane's brother, Shane. He can be seen on the concept art posted on page 105. He's been mentioned a few times though, even on this page.



Now (completely unrelated... or not), mark my words: The ship coming out of subspace at the end of the preview is the Parabellum.

*scrolls back to page 105* Right, noted. That now leaves more plotholes, like where the hell was Kane during the training episode 20 where the blast was fired, or why he didn't go do the training himself (yet still responded to being called "coach" by Ai without hesitation).

Perhaps next episode will fill these...

Has it not occurred to you all that Kane is playing dumb? Hence why he doesn't get at first what Marika is talking about.

You see Michael Westen and Sam Axe always looking clueless every episode of Burn Notice, until it's time to get dangerous.

Kane was too focused on steering and thus did not process the information even though his mouth was speaking. It happens to the best of us.

However, Kane responding to Coach in spite of all that chaos? Its his inner perv speaking having made a whole club of girls address him as a higher being. Nothing denies the inner perv.

@gaiar ...right.
