Japanator: "If Moretsu Pirates suffered any problems, its biggest would be one of perception. That can mostly be blamed on its title: Bodacious Space Pirates. By that first word, most folks expected a whiz-bang rollercoaster of space action, voluptuous teens, and piracy up the wazoo. Similar issues persisted even if one referred to the show by its original name, Mini-Skirt Space Pirates. Whiz-bang, mini-skirts, space action, etc.
That's not what most folks got."
