It's just the side hulls. The ships look like a combination of swords & catamarans. The reason is that the combat in Moretsu Pirates operates off long-distance attacks, so having a small "cross section" facing your enemy is to your advantage.

So, they're just the hulls. The Grand Cross is definitely a prototype ship, as it very clearly is new tech bolted into a previous hull design. That's the reason for the transformation bit. It's actually a normally cruiser that's completely retrofitted. So, they're just the side hulls. I guess you could call it a "pontoon", but that's probably stretching it a bit.

Well, when all is said and done it looks like this was my fave series of Spring 2012. Very nice and solid all around.

Huzzah to all involved in the production of this one.

The Catamaran hull shape is also implied to represent the Empire, for both the Crand Gross and the Parabellum have that general hull design.

Interestingly, the Interstellar Alliance may use triple hulls. We've yet to see one in the flesh, but they are represented in Misa's paper cutting history lesson.

That would cause Gonzaemon to surrender his ship and become a pirate in the Greater Empire. The hint at becoming real pirates to me indicate a possible war a new threat to the Great Empire. The pirates are marauder who served as part of the military in time of war.. So becoming a real pirate would indicate a war brewing.

It has to be something big for Gonzaemon to have to fake his death so that he could than become the pirate Ironbeard and someone off the radar so he can not be easily tracked. It also has the Gruier knowing his real identity so most likely it involves Serenity also. There better be a second season there is way too many unknowns.. I really want to know why Gonzaemon's death still has to be kept hidden from Marika.

I wouldn't be surprised if the only one on the crew to know the truth is the doctor as she would of had to falsify his record for his death. As it seemed almost nobody knew Kane had a younger brother posing as him either so feels like much of the crew was left out of details also.. Probably until Marika makes her decision whatever that decision is.

The faked death and the takeover of the Bentenmaru went so roughly with military and government involved that there has to be alot going on in the Greater Empire and the local governments. Maybe a new enemy of the Empire and civil unrest that is supporting the new enemy. The Ghost ship that had enough strife to cause them to fire on a ship with there own princess on it.. the fighting really only ended when they found out the incubator on the Golden Ship of the Royalty had already run out and could not birth any new successors. The truce agreement not to interfere with Marika until graduation than she will have to face a decsion. And not to say least how Ririka was not suprised with her husband showed up and all she stated was so that is what is going on.. as if they suspected some plot for a while or that and it affirmed when he showed up out of the blue not dead but having arranged a truce for Marika.

Would be great to hear some feedback from anyone that has read the light novels.

When I reread all these thoughts out it makes the whole Ghost Ship in a new light as the last thing the Royal line would want is a method for them to be replaced.. hence killed wiped out and replaced with new stock from the Ghost Ship. Serenity is made out to be not a very important but it really seems more of the information HUB for that part of the Galaxy like the intelligence network which if the Royal family was wiped out could be a disaster to the local government. Not only that but the Ghost Ship has been traveling a strange pattern for I forget how many years it has been traveling. Unless we put a different perspective on it the ship has been traveling dangerous routes hardly ever used in a pattern that would indicate one important thing it was charting the uncharted dangerous regions. Serenity to me appears to be an information network and not only that it now has probably the ONLY copy of these uncharted routes charted so that they can be safely traversed as the Golden Ship has been serving that purpose for who knows how long now. You can't say that Serenity has been leaving their history/legacy traveling all this time with no concern until now. As long as the Ghost Ship was an unknown factor there was no danger to it so it continued to gather and most likey transmitted information to Serenity but once it became known than that knowledge would be a threat to Serenity and had to be recovered.
This being a work of both fiction, and entertainment, I suspect the likely answer to most of your questions is:

Drama.



That said, I agree that they should have another season, as there is an actual plot going on here. Still, history does not bode well for us getting all of a story from a light novel in anime format as that happens very rarely.

I wonder how they will reintegrate the series and the light novels if they do a second season?

I am going to guess and say they is nothing major in the light novel plots that they can't work around with what they've done in the last third of the anime. Having the same story, just with Marika as a third year instead of a second year. It isn't like Jenny and Lynn are gone really. Seeing Jenny taking command of pirate ship Odette II personally in the last episode seemed right even if the ship can't make it out of the system).

Sorry. Whatever is was you were trying to type got lost in the translation.

Meaning I would like to answer the question if possible. But I don't understand what the question was.

That is a question I have no answer.

I know there was an under-used light novel thread, but I know of no manga thread.
I would assume talk about it here since without a sub-forum things can get lost if they are not centralized.

Still reading the posts here, so I can't say much. But I'd like to share this... Pinoys can now sing along to the legendary OP in Tagalog: http://forums.animesuki.com/showthre...13#post4246413

BTW, my current avatar isn't Marika actually. It's Shammy (Bridge Bunny of SDF-1) wearing Capt. Global's uniform. However, the similarity was one of the reasons that finally drove me to watch Moretsu Pirates.

Weird. There was an error of some kind when I did them, but I thought I fixed it.

Fixed now.
