It’s true, it’s been almost 10 years since the premiere of the Bodacious Space Pirates anime, based on the Miniskirt Space Pirates light novel series by Yuichi Sasamoto. The series first hit the airwaves in Japan on January 8, 2012, and ran until June 30 of that year, and a new visual is here to celebrate the anniversary.
Beyond the visual, the Bodacious Space Pirates anime will get a 10th anniversary rebroadcast in Japan starting on January 3, 2022.
Crunchyroll streamed the series as it originally aired and describes it like so:
Marika Katou is a freshman in high school who lives on the planet “Umi no Akehoshi” somewhere in space. One day, she is told that her father, who she thought was dead, was actually alive until just a while ago, and was the captain of the space pirate ship Bentenmaru. And she also finds out that they need her, his heir, to be captain so that they can keep flying! Marika begins a new life as a high school girl, and as captain of the pirate ship Bentenmaru!
