Oh how sad it will be - when the weekly editions of this series is over (hopefully for now). But, it's been a very fun ride.

I reject your premature sadness and will reserve such feeling for after Season 1 is over.

The end card said "Let's meet again in Movie"

Will it be about one of the two things that are certain in life, other than death?

Edit: Oh lol there was a ship called Hakugin (Silver)

Mobirates The Final - Interesting, Ain't It?

Almost an entire episode devoted to interstellar combat... if the show's going to leave, best to do so with a bang. Seeing all those pirates in action, even the hybrid ones like the ninjas, was pretty awesome. What I took from it most of all was probably Marika's space suit (pirate edition). She looks very GokaiRed in it, and that's a high compliment. Another season could easily come of this show, and I'd be happy if one did.

It started off a little slow and dry, and seemed to focus more on the machines than the humans. As it went along, it became more comfortable in its own skin, more fun to watch. It's good that neither the Yacht Club nor the Bentenmaru crew were completely dominant in the story. They're both important to Marika, and have even teamed up on more than one occasion. Ai especially. She's going to go on to great things. Even if the title had stayed "Miniskirt", I don't think it would've hurt the show that much. It was well put together, with an interesting, expansive universe populated by an enjoyable set of characters. (And some yuri elements, always a plus.)

Knew Ironbeard was Marika's dad, but the implications of that weren't fully explored. Perhaps down the line. Loved the costumes the Yacht Club had in the end. Gruier aside, they looked like they belonged on a cruise ship... but it fit. The gears of pirate mania that I had early in the year now wind down, making way for... something else. But I'll remember Marika and friends for while.

So many conflicting emotions:

-Quite a cast we have here, with most development going to Marika of course, with Gruier, Chiaki, and Ai getting quite a bit. I was glad to see Marika and watch her character grow. I know there are times that I felt Marika was a kind of blank slate or didn't express strong emotions, but overall, I'm glad they didn't make her a weepy mess.

-Still, it's not as ambitious as the series implies it is, especially with the marketing and the themes of adventure and passion. There are plenty of things that they could do, things that excites the fanbase and fuels discussion, but still keep the tone that was in the first arc. But they don't take advantage of the vast, interesting universe the series is set in and settle in on mundane school and pointless cutaway scenes talking about...things. Say what you want about shows like Guilty Crown or other scifi animes, but they fuel a LOT of discussion and emotions, whether good or bad, because the world-building elements they introduce contribute greatly to a big plot. They even had some great things like the captain's UI or the corporate rebellion, except it's kinda just resolved or kind of just THERE with no further development.

Apathy is death.

I think the problem is also with the source material, so I can't blame the director for what he has to work with.

-Sometimes I think they have their heads up their asses regarding the importance of some characters and activities, like Gruier popping up all the time. Take episode 8 and 14 for example, a lot of things we didn't need to see or things that didn't contribute much at all like Gruier at school, the car ride, or the new crew member search.

-The focus is a bit lost when we have to switch back and forth between the crew and the schoolgirls. The biggest sin is not fleshing out the crew except for Kane. If you look at episode 1 through 26, which characters besides Marika grow or change by the time we reach 26?

-Please reduce the number of anticlimaxes, it's not helping the show nor is it that clever. There are many ways to have a logical/reasonable climax and invigorate passion in the viewers rather than just "oh, everything's okay".

I had fun watching the show and hope they take some criticisms to heart. And I hope that movie's not a recap, I want to see the 4-6 arc.
