Bodacious Space Pirates Film's 1st Teaser Streamed

posted on by Jennifer Sherman
Tatsuo Satō returns to direct anime slated for February 2014 premiere

The official website for the the Mōretsu Pirates (Bodacious Space Pirates) anime film began streaming the first teaser trailer and a new piece of visual art on Saturday. The "pirate teaser transmission" reveals keywords for the film that include the following: letter of marque, Bentenmaru, super-lightspeed range, subspace turbulence, the infinite beyond, flint system, the Golden Seven, the characters, and finally, Captain Marika Kato. The video ends with, "Please wait for more info!"

Director Tatsuo Satō revealed in March that the film will open next February. The new visual reads, "Well, it's pirate time!"

Sato is returning as the director and the screenwriter at the anime studio Satelight. Akira Yasuda ("Akiman") is once again adapting Noriyuki Matsumoto's original character designs for animation. King Record's Starchild Records label is producing the music.

Bodacious Space Pirates, the television anime adaptation of Yuichi Sasamoto's Mini-Skirt Uchū Kaizoku (Mini-Skirt [Space] Pirates) space-opera novels, debuted in Japan last year. Crunchyroll streamed the series outside of Japan as it aired, and Sentai Filmworks is releasing the anime on Blu-ray Disc and DVD in North America.
