The Japanese software publisher Namco Bandai Games registered the game trademark "Pirate Warriors" with the United States Patent and Trademark Office on February 1. In December, the company filed the same trademark in the European Union.

When the set ends, it's on a note of combined hope and sadness that drives us onto the next volume as surely as the mounting disasters of last volume drove us to this one.
You may not get anything substantial from this brief OVA, but it's a lot of fun to watch regardless.
Oriented towards mature audiences, this tale of mercenary life in SE Asia, and the Japanese business drone who gets drawn into it, has all the elements it needs to be a big hit – sexy heroine, loads of coarse language, graphic violence, great visuals, and a kickin' musical score.
