Plot: Humanity spread into space, and soon, the colonies wanted autonomy. During the war for independence, pirating was legalized with a document called the Letter of Marque.
Marika Kato has just discovered that her recently-deceased father was a legal pirate. She is next in line to inherit his ship, the Bentenmaru, and a few of its crew members -- as well as potential enemies -- have their eyes on her. As a member of her school's space yacht club, Marika shows promise with her piloting skills. But does she have what it takes to be the captain of a pirate ship? (B+)

Objectionable Content: Mild
Other: An interesting girls' sci-fi flick. It has potential to be good. Don't let its english title, "Bodacious Space Pirates" scare you. There isn't much "bodacious" to speak of.
Overall Score: A-
