>Abyss of Hyperspace subs released
>no thread about it
Come on, /m/.
It was pretty good.
GATTAI DAwas the best worst plan ever. Also, Advaseele was fucking cool.
It's a movie sequel to a show about space pirates. In space.
>TFW your anus will never be ready
I just finished the movie. I enjoyed it but I didn't like the character redesigns (the 3D was too obvious, too) and there wasn't enough spaceship porn. Deep sea diving metaphors got old kind of quick, too. Still, it was a fun ride. I hope they make a new season.
I need the insert and ED songs.
>Kidnapping is your job!?
Webms nothing, kit please.
Damn, watching again makes me just want S2 even more.
Higher chance than
Heromanwill ever get.
Novels have a lot to take from, too.
Say what you will about the series as a whole, but damn if it doesn't do a great job capturing the sheer beauty of space.
It really does.
So, what was behind the decision to make Schnitzer's mouth not move when he talks in the movie? That wasn't the case in the show, so it wasn't due to lack of budget.
They really paid attention to the backgrounds.
This show gives me mixed messages whenever I hear about it. All signs point to it being moeshit fluff and then I hear it described like it's moe Outlaw Star with starship porn. It's somewhat confusing.
Try to sell me on this show, give me an idea of what it's like.
The moeshit is mainly secondary, most of the focus is on the characters and the story. They actually do spend a fair amount of time discussing the tech and such, and the visuals are pretty damn nice.
If you're going to watch the show to form your own opinion, be warned that it starts a bit slow and thus the first 3 or 4 episodes aren't entirely representative of what the rest of the show is like. It's consistent, but the pace does increase.
Space privateers, that puts on performances and entertain guests on luxury liners, and they also get hired for whatever purposes, escort, "kidnapping", etc.
It's more like PMCs that in that particular sector are hired to put on shows for the super-rich occasionally.
In other sectors, they are very obviously hired for clandestined weapon's testing and espionage.
During the first wave of colonization, a system was colonized, and the capital was the Sea of Morningstar. A beautiful rich planet, it attracted the attention of an expanding neighbour. Morningstar didn't have the power to stand up to them alone so they basically created a system where illegal space pirates could get an official document legalizing their raids, so long as the pirates pillaged from the enemy. The space pirates became an armed militia and helped even the odds, until a large empire appeared and ended the fighting by annexing both sides.
However, while the war was over, the pirates stuck around. With their ancient documents legalizing their right to be autonomous and bear weaponry outside of military control, they soon found a new profession by teaming up with interstellar travel companies. What happens is the company provides pirates with the location and data of a cruise ship, and the pirates flamboyantly board the vessel, dressing up in piratical costumes and staging fights, putting on a show while robbing the guests of their valuables. The cruise company then reimburses the guests for their losses as part of the contract, and stories about being held up by dashing pirates popularize the company's trips and increases ticket sales to bored rich people.
Of course, the fact is that the pirate ships are still armed autonomous warships, and as a result are often asked by governments, companies, or individuals to do jobs involving dangerous work such as escorting goods or VIPs or rescue missions. They're mercenaries for hire.
The protagonist in the series is a girl who discovers she's by heredity the next captain of an ancient pirate vessel and decides to have a go at it. While there are arcs where she works in the school's yacht club the main ship is crewed by adults of all shapes and sizes, and it's not a super-cute show by a longshot.
Best part of this show apart from the sci-fi parts and tactics, would be the fact that they never ever shown the panties of any of the girls, despite them wearing skirts in zero-gravity.
The only fanservice is spaceship porn and scenery porn.
It's definitely worth checking out. The characters are fun, the visuals (particularly the ship designs) are damn good, and the soundtrack is fantastic. But the real selling point of the series is its top-notch world building. It's a really detailed setting, as you can probably tell from >>12411487, and the show does a great job of bringing it to life.
Note that much of this is actually addressed and explained by the series itself, including some things about the Galactic Empire keeping tabs on the systems. Backstory to the series has a lot going on, but the show also tries to utilize it fairly well, even up to the anime-only last arc.
Funny you mention that...
I still love that Komatsu did that.
Of course, not like Sei was the first model-building character she's played.
I'm kinda disappointed. Not that the movie was bad, but expected some closure or big things happening and in the end it was just like a longer regular episode in the series. Liked it nonetheless.
>Marika's VA is Sei's VA
Mother of God...
Well, you don't actually know how big the planet is. Those islands could very well be city-sized or town-sized, and the planet itself is a very dense planetoid that has high gravity for its size.
Didn't know? Well, now you do.
Seriously, this was pretty much the exact same reaction my wife and I had about this after we finished watching.
>attack a house in numbers, using at least two aerial transports
>get shot down and all arrested
And the lesson of the day is, don't fuck with Blaster Ririka.
>they never ever shown the panties of any of the girls, despite them wearing skirts in zero-gravity.
There's about 3 actual panty shots throughout the entire series; and they're less than a second each (literally an in-between frame). /a/ and the Japanese equivalent of 4chan spent hours searching each episode.
Only one I know of is Chiaki's white panties. That one happens just as Chiaki's whipping out her pistol after eating her parfait in the early episode.
Anyway, have a look at this Superhuman feat of Japanese restraint.
Here you go, Chiaki's white panties.
An entire ship full of schoolgirls with short skirts in Zero-G, and not a single overly long focus on panties to be found. It astounds me to this day.
Posting some more mother-daughter bonding.
>Privateers of an ancient government that still function ages after that government has ceased to exist
Holy fuck I'm so goddamn sold right now
Oh, wait, qualifying question: are there males in the story?
Hard mode: are there males that are not villians?
Nightmare Mode: are there males that are part of the primary cast?
Dante-must-die mode: Are there males of similar ages to the female protagonist(s) in the primary cast, with at least noteworthy levels of screentime or development?
>Oh, wait, qualifying question: are there males in the story?
>Hard mode: are there males that are not villians?
>Nightmare Mode: are there males that are part of the primary cast?
Yes (the Bentenmaru's regular crew).
>Dante-must-die mode: Are there males of similar ages to the female protagonist(s) in the primary cast, with at least noteworthy levels of screentime or development?
No. We get an anime-original female rival (which is a roundabout cocktease to what Marika later does in the LNS). Though IIRC, the author mentioned being fine with it, and was also working with a few other details that were revised by the anime.
Oh, fuck. Oh well, thanks, still gonna download
Also revising the last question: of the aforementioned males (the Bentenmaru's regular crew) are there any with at least noteworthy levels of screentime or development?
One has a brother that's important to one of the stories and the others we at least learn their hobbies and hangups.
Of the cyborg dude we only learn that he can breath in space.
Which 1080p version of the 2012 anime series torrents should I download? Coalgirls, whynot or raziel? Other than whynot, the releases seem to have some sort of filter over the vid that makes the colours less vivid.
First of all, I don't like you
Second of all, because I have heavy reservations against anything with a monogendered cast
For ALL FUCBOIS, ALL THE TIME, it usually means it's pandering to fujoshit, and that's shit
For ALL 13-18 YEAR OLD WAIFUS, ALL THE TIME, it usually means its pandering to people I dislike, and I personally don't see the point of such shows
I will still give such shows a chance based only on recommendation, but I try to stay away if at all possible
Schnitzer is the cutest Pirate.
And aside from Marika is the only character in the dub with a pretty decent VA.
Movie (along with the last arc of the anime) is not based on any of the novels.
Subs are more or less the same for all. I'd suggest whynot over the others personally.
>Movie (along with the last arc of the anime) is not based on any of the novels
Isn't that a bad thing though? How is there supposed to be an S2 when it goes into Anime original territory?
Author approved of the last arc, from last I heard, and surprisingly it seems it could tie into the Novels fairly well.
Quartz's message to Marika about finding "bigger seas", and her status as a princess of the Galactic Empire, seems to be foreshadowing Marika's eventual training with one of the Galactic Empire's fleets. The movie is a bit more ambiguous, as not much in the novels really touch upon the content of what it was dealing with, from my recollection. I am looking forward to what might be in store for S2, especially seeing what they do with the Romulan pirate.
Now THAT is real recruitment art
Now THAT is real cyborg facepalm
They've changed mother. I don't like it.
Can't tell the proper difference, but she was much more sexy designed in TV
Oh, I see what you're worried about. In that case though it doesn't apply to Pirates at all, there's no harem/fanservice pandering at all, despite the mostly-female cast. It's not "cute girls doing cute things," it's more "cute girls with likable personalities doing fun pirate stuff in a very cool, inventive space setting."
Haha, it's actually a lot more lighthearted than Harlock. I like it, whereas Harlock got really heavy at times (manly tears for Tokarga ;-; ) this doesn't have a lot of death or sacrifice. It's still quite good though.
What the hell is Schnitzer reading?
>It's not "cute girls doing cute things," it's more "cute girls with likable personalities doing fun pirate stuff in a very cool, inventive space setting."
Danke. Also, time for olde enjoyable things.
Looks like a story about a loli and a robot.
...I'm now getting Bosshi vibes. Except instead of a loli and a dragon, it's a loli and a robot or cyborg.
Schnitzer; is there something you want to tell us?
Do jap chicks not understand make up or something?
Pure, normal girls don't wear it and are expected to be absolutely gorgeous without it
Girls that do look like...that...and are "filthy sluts" and gob the shit on like a fucking idiot
I don't really get it
>Do jap chicks not understand make up or something?
Man, that's just theatre stage make-up. Before her first pirate job ever. It's supposed to be exaggerated and overdone, but you'll look on it with a distance of 5-10 meters. Or course it'll looks like shit when closer.
GIGAA DRILLL BREIKAAA
Pure Joy Movie. Enjoyable Things Are Such Enjoyable!
>otherwise it still baffles me.
Well, it was the first and only last time with this makeup in whole Moretsu Pirates.
Ok, time to post some from my Moretsu folder. I really like Heero's face on the background.
Sum pre-production desings, Chiaki is so adorable here
Holy shit, you right.
Then, some starship porn here.
Always like that balcony for romantic suicidal persons.
Finally, some scale. Their cityes are really small.
Ok, time for some delicious Marika (and schnietzel)
Anyone remember how that bitch was named? Because I can't.
I really liked how Morningstar was so sparsely populated and oceanic. It really felt like a world that was settled only a few hundred years earlier and colonized by people who could plan things out from orbit.
I also liked that bit where they acknowledged the other inhospitable planet in the system that even had a name, it was like "hey, this is proper sci-fi, you know because we bothered to put in a mercury-venus inner planet analogue"
I like dat small plate on her, you know wat I mean...
>Girls that do look like...that...and are "filthy sluts"
Damn, Kane's height is godly for Japanese standards.
Same as me, yay
That is correct.
They gave her permanent lipstick and emphasized her figure more in the movie. Not really the end of the world in terms of fanservice, and it's not like the show didn't have the occasional fanservice either.
The Laughing Heero gets me every fucking time.
I still prefer LN Marika > Anime Marika > Manga Marika.
And Anime Cyborg > LN Cyborg > Manga Cyborg.
I kinda personally prefer Anime Marika over LN Marika, but both have pretty nice designs. Honestly kinda think the anime did good with some design overhauls. Manga tried to hybridize them, and some worked, some didn't.
Complains about no one talking about your favorite animu.
make shit bait thread, not telling people what it is, thus losing opportunity to spread fandom.
come back again and complains about no one knows your favorite animu.
Speaking of LN designs, the novel Bentenmaru does have a rather bulky, angry, Defiant-ish look to it. I still prefer the anime's "cranky old grandma of the Outlaw Star" version, but the alternative isn't that bad.
FInally managed to watch it.
Marika had so many "hey kid, wanna /ss/" moments it almost felt out of place.
Dat Gruyere OTP
That said, Chiaki was adorable as always, I need gifs/webms of chibi Marika army and
