So I guess they just saw how well One Piece and Gundam was doing and decided to make a combination-wannabe out of the two in a high-school setting. Arrow

This looks like it'll be fun. I'm sure Satelight will adapt the novels well.

The whole 'replacement for dead father' really makes me think of Gunbuster though.

I remember reading the article talking about "mini skirt space pirates" (the manga or anime, I'm not sure which) and how everyone was sold on such an idea based on the name itself, myself included. The preview looks intruiging, I'll be looking forward to the actual show itself. You would think a show like this would be right up Funimation's alley: short skirts and spaceships.

Considering Tatsuo Sato is working on this, I expect some fun adventures with fun characters out this. And then shit will hit the fan! Surprised

...Someone walks into the pitch meeting, simply says, "Sailor Harlock," and every one loses their $#!t... Laughing

I didn't think I'd say it, but...it doesn't look terrible.

That's as much as I'll give it for now. Not expecting it to be the next Irresponsible Captain Tylor just yet.

Agreed. I was expecting much more...Bodaciousness.

It actually looks pretty fun!

Bodacious Pirates? Really?

I haven't heard anyone use the word bodacious in like 20 years.

There'll definitely be a section of fandom who've been waiting for Sato to do this sort of material again. And I'm one of them.

I wasn't feeling the early part of the preview, but once the lead was dressed as a pirate, we started to see the crew and ship designs, my expectations rose.

There is a serious lack of eye-patches.

Wait...



Now that's kawaii - one step closer to completing my life.

I'd rather have a third season of Vandread. This series seems to be seriously lacking in both Jura and Meia.

You may not want to go there, or you'll hear from the folks who've wanted another season of Nadesico since 1997 --- which is a bit of baggage that this series will be faced with, just as Stellvia did at first.
