#BodaciousSpacePirates ep6: Paperwork, Plays & Pirates. That was a pretty entertaining training mission. #anime
looks like she's gonna experience some burn out until Chiaki gets
drafted onto to the Bentenmaru for some training of her own. And I
that's when things get fun.
It was nice to get a little primer, and some background on the pirate
world. I still don't get exactly what the point of all this is. It
seems almost like a legalize drugs sort of situation. Where the
"Letter of Marque" is used as pressure release valve to keep the
piracy under control.
I also found it interesting to see Marika and Chiaki interact together
again. It seems like Chiaki accepts her when she's excelling at her
piracy duties, but she can't stand her when the "ditsy" little girl
comes back out. It's like she pushes Marika away because she doesn't
know how to deal with her. That said, they're still fast friends. I
suspect we'll get to see both of them again in captain's uniforms with
matching responsibilities when they next meet. An exciting thought,
hopefully they'll still be allies as well.
As for Marika's first mission... uh, I suppose to best way to explain
it is "mock piracy successfull". Clearly pirates are so rare and
obscure in this universe that they're viewed by a portion of the
public like rumor, urban legend, or novelty. I think I need more of
the universe explained to me to clearly understand it, but for now the
episode has done an admirable job of inching further forward into the
world of space pirates.
