BTW... how many episodes is this series? I had it down on my list as ep 13 end... but there's an ep 14...
26.

Which brings up a point I've got to ask. BSP was announced as 26 episodes right from the very beginning, and yet this thread (and other, similar threads I've seen on other sites...heck, including Crunchyroll, where the thing is actually streaming) are full of people thinking it's only 13. Why is there such widespread confusion over its length?

I think that there were so many 12/13-episode (or 1-cour) shows for several years that it has become the norm, and anything more than that are infrequent.

People have become very accustomed to the 12 and 13 episode pacing. I have to admit: I did too. Yet, this 26-episode pace mixed with the sci-fi spaceship theme, it felt like a good breath of fresh air.

Surely, we've had some other 20+ length series fairly recently such as Gosick, Mawaru Penguindrum, and Stein's Gate. None of these dealt with the space "adventure" theme.

I actually got the episode count from AnimeNewsNetwork...

I don't think they update it anymore ;(

A lot of things there are out-dated or mis-informed...




AnimeNewsNetwork used to be the main source for like 80% of people that watches Anime...
They used to update daily and all info was correct and up-to-date...

But I think with "MyAnimeList" and a whole bunch of new Blogs... They stopped updating as good as before...

ANN is largely a wiki with editors. If we don't contribute, the info doesn't get updated. I still prefer it, for my purposes, since it presents the info I want in the simplest way. I'm just careful about what info I accept, as I am with every other site on the Net.

Episode totals are notoriously hard to get right. I trust the relentlessness blog, which infers totals from DVD offerings. He says 26 episodes.

By the way, since Komatsu Mikako, who plays Marika, has a single coming out next week (see Cosmic Eagle's post a while ago), there are new pics of her around. Such as these:



Her image song single is available from CDJapan, Amazon Japan, etc.

Regarding the number of episodes, when I was following the twitter #mo_retsu, there are Japanese and/or Japanese-able people who didn't know that this is going to be 26 episodes. Believe it or not, there are people who didn't watch the preview segment, as it comes after the ED song AND TV advertisements

That aside, the cover for BD Vol 3 Limted Edition
Spoiler for BD vol 3:
So Marika actually equalizes her count to Gruelle of being the main cover girl for the novels (3-3) with the other two were Chiaki (vol 3) and Müller Grant (vol 6) ...German :P
Spoiler for 誰だこれwwwwww:

Hopefully things will get interesting this time (they should be with more pirates).

On a side note, both Rina Sato (Jenny Dolittle) and Mikako Komatsu (Marika Kato) are in the new Space Battleship Yamato 2199. Rina Sato plays the new ship's Nurse (Makoto Harada) while Mikako has a minor role as the little brother (Jirō Shima) to one of the main characters (Daisuke Shima). It makes the little "bakame" scene in Episode 5 all the more interesting.

^Better not to get your hope too high, because the title is as straightforward as it can be :P. IMO the earlier part of book 3 deals with the theme "Trust" between Marika and her surrounding people. Also, nostalgia goggle in forms of cameos (if they're able to show them in this episode)

I don't know how they're going to adapt book 3, but I do know that they already did one thing wrong: Marika's business suit is supposed to be dark blue, before ending up as red :P

Oh yes, I know Rina can do the KYAAAAAA beer chuck a lot of justice.

Jenny might fancy something more classy...

Mobirates 14 - Wanted: A Crew

I never thought an insurance company would be a plot catalyst, but Hiroki Yasumoto's performance as Show was noticeably hammy. He rocks the afro. I do like how Gruier has pretty much become an unofficial member of the crew at this point - long after her arc completes, the show still needs her presence. Her "disguise" for Marika is going to spurn a lot of fanart, I bet, and meeting Chiaki's dad was pretty cool. Though I'm looking forward to the next arc(?) quite a bit. This is a chance for the Yacht Club to show their stuff and get fleshed out a little more, effectively combining the first and second parts of the show. Now it can truly be called Miniskirt Space Pirates (yes, I still like that name.)

Oh man the crew got sick. Marika looked good in a suit., too bad it was a horrible disguise. So we meet Chiaki's dad, very cool. Chiaki singing the anthem! Can't believe Marika didn't think about asking them for help.

Bleh, why are Mami and Gruelle always forcing weird outfits on me?
Observation #1: The Yacht Club simulators are located inside a pool. I know at one time it was about boats, and you are located on a planet names 'Sea of the Morning Star' but that's a bit excessive.


Observation #2: I think Marika had a reason she didn't go to the Yacht Club first.

I'm sure there'll be plenty of comedic hijinks next week about the Yacht Club taking over the pirate ship, but...seriously, Marika, when you have a gang of scary (albeit genki and cute) badasses that you hang out with every day, you know whom you need to hire! (Seriously, if Jenny was still there, I'd take the Yacht Club over the real crew nine times out of ten. )

I hope she hires Jenny,there's no reason why she can't hire her.

Er, at this point, Jenny's wealth/position/everything she's more like the CEO/fleet admiral, so it makes more sense for Marika to be working for Doolittle. After all, past a certain point, all naval careers lead to a desk.

...or a dreadnought cruiser/doomsday capital ship.
