Manga by Chibimaru adapting February film began earlier this year

The October issue of Kadokawa's Comic Alive magazine is announcing on Wednesday that Chibimaru's Bodacious Space Pirates: Abyss of Hyperspace (Mōretsu Pirates: Abyss of Hyperspace -Akū no Shien- manga will end in the November issue of the magazine, which will ship in Japan on September 27.

The manga adapts the Bodacious Space Pirates film of the same name.

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, a boy who owns a "galaxy pass." Thus, an adventure featuring a hyperspace race between pirates and one young boy begins.

Chibimaru began the manga in Comic Alive's February 2014 issue. The first compiled volume of the series shipped in Japan on March 22.

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 in 2012. 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.
