posted on by Crystalyn Hodgkins
King Records began streaming the second teaser trailer on Friday for the Mōretsu Pirates (Bodacious Space Pirates) anime film, Bodacious Space Pirates: Abyss of Hyperspace (Mōretsu Pirates: Abyss of Hyperspace -Akū no Shien-).
The video reveals that the film will open on February 22, 2014. Momoiro Clover Z's "Mōretsu Uchū Kōkyōkyoku - Dai-Shichi Gakushō 'Mugen no Ai'" (Extreme Space Symphony's Movement VII 'Infinite Love') song from the television series will serve as the opening song for the film. Additionally, "angela Presents Shoko Nakagawa" will perform the ending theme song "Kirakira-go-round." Mikako Komatsu (the voice of Marika Kato) will again perform an image song in the film, titled "Sail Away." Komatsu's fourth single with the image song will ship on February 22.
The film's story is as follows:
Marika Kato, a third year student at Hakuho Girls' Academy, is a legitimate space pirate with a Letter of Marque. Between her studies, leading her school's space yacht club, working part time at Cafe Lamp, and being the captain of the space pirate ship Bentenmaru, Marika's days are very busy. One day, Marika gets a job to rob a high-class passenger ship, and she discovers that on the passenger list is Kanata Mugen (played by Asami Shimoda), a boy who owns a "galaxy pass." Thus, an adventure featuring a hyperspace race between pirates and one young boy begins.
Tatsuo 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 has released the anime on Blu-ray Disc and DVD in North America.
