Point, but the long-ranged jobs we see don't tally with littoral ops - all the pirates are going far and away. Then again the oceangoing issues with littoral combat ships may not be as much of a concern in space - corvettes aren't so hot in open water compared to frigates or destroyers, but that shouldn't be too much of an issue in space.

Since pirates use cruisers, I cross-applied the term from there. Too bad it wasn't accurate. It's not some heinous crime anyway, not like my day job.

And why I still keep my day job.
So basically all your focus got used up on your day job?

Now, as I was trying to say, a captain in a cruiser supported by lighter class ships would be experienced in handling fleet actions, and so would be better at working with and protecting the large star cruisers shipping companies typically use.
See, that actually made sense, and I agree with that point. Will wonders never cease? We're not facepalming at each other, but actually agree on something! It's a miracle! ...that took about five years to come about.

I am curious about Misa's mention of over 200 pirate fleets - I wonder what size and composition is required to be declared a fleet. Big Catch & escorts would, in modern US Navy parlance, be termed a Task Group (several ships to a Task Group, several Task Groups to a Task Force, several Task Forces to a Fleet).

I'm going to pretend that cool ship is a experimental ship stolen from the Stellar Empire.

The pirates ships are supposed to be "old" but they are continuously upgraded...budget permitting. They seem to keep up with regular military ships quite well. This new ship seems "exotic." Obviously some sort of experimental super weapon.
Nope, from what we're told it's... pretty much just to increase the fleet's size.

And pirates would have a far more difficult time getting their hands on hi-tech, powerful weaponry than an actual government army. Illegal, yeah, but even then within bounds (as per the whole "pirates can't commit crimes" clause). But illegal does not automatically translate to powerful, which leads us back to the first two which are easier obtained by a true military.

Well, just look at our world. Having access to the internet does not automatically mean people know about other governments. A lack of proper research and lots and lots of assumption, rumors and outright lies tends to block things for a lot of people.

In other news, goddammit why are these episode previews for Moretsu Pirates still so spoiler-filled?

From Audio Drama 2 that comes with BD Vol 4.

Title: わたしたちの、シンオク! (Our Shin Oku!) Casts: Marika and waifu no 1 and 2
Spoiler for Our Shin Oku!:

I'll not be surprised if the scenario actually happens . I'm still waiting to see what was entrusted to Show by the previous Bentenmaru's Captain regarding Marika (also from the Character profile in the ED sequence). Can't wait for the final audio drama that will be bundled with BD vol 7.

I'll stick to refering to them as escort then.

The AGE system is working as intended.

I suppose the 50 of them about to assemble for the Aiur Chef should be enough. I think that's more ships than the entire Singapore navy!

Which is why some pirates choose to work for the Galactic Empire.

Also, Imperial Intelligence would be another neat source of bling.

Because the last time they tried to give us some action they pulled a fast one on us (ITS A DREAM), and the fans didn't like that.

TENGEN TOPPA HAKUOH-LAGANN was my original phrase before I felt HAKUOH-RION flowed better and changed it.

Plus points if that song was actually playing in the background of that audio drama.

Pouting Chiak-chan is soo cute! she also blushed a LOT (considering her time when she is on screen) Love to see her back and the princess in maid uniform. Marika is indeed the boss. She even made the princess say the password. Good episode.

And don't underestimate glasses-girls. Take the glasses off... and let the hair down. You may find one heck of a knocker.

Is it just me or is the vast majority soundtrack way too good for the scenes where they were used? Sure, a few fit perfectly, but without looking at the episodes, the music exerts emotions way out of the league for a few scenes of people talking about near mundane stuff.

Interesting that Marika knew such an awesome person without realizing it until now. That's not the real Kane right?

No I do not think the music is 'too good' for the scenes where they are used instead

Interesting.

So if I understand this right, Ironbeard is using his helmsman on the Bentenmaru to either get the location of the Pirate Cove, or to draw out the Grand Cross. Or to let Ironbeard know when and where the Grand Cross is attacking. That is assuming "Kane/Coach" is working for Ironbeard.

Though that means that Kane is likely on Ironbeard's ship.

That the ship was using sound effect and holograms was an interesting touch. Captain Harlock doesn't need such things. In his universe, ships can burn in space with smoke trailing out the back.

Though if the other speculationis correct, if they had used Coorie's original design, it would have been too obvious from the start (since aside from the large glasses, her light novel face looks really nice. And I liked that design. It was one of teh few I thought was not improved in the anime.)

Chiaki finally gets into her ED outfit/jumpsuit.

Is it bad that I like Chiaki's being in a jumpsuit, now that I've seen it?
