There are three main faults this show has.
First is that you dont get to know anything about the characters, except a bit of Marika. But nothing about the Bentenmarous crew, almost nothing about Ririka and Marikas father or any of the classmates (not that I care much about them anyway)
Second is that this show is just not serious enough, its always only happy-go-lucky. Even when ships get destroyed nobody dies, everyone is nice to each other and nobody dislikes anyone. Thats just so unrealistic. Overall this show is unrealistic to the core.
Third it doesnt give any explanations regarding the universe they live in (except those little bits about pirates), the technology or the people. You just get thrown from one little plot to the next without even knowing what you watch.
At least they answered the question to why nobody was shocked that Marikas father died or that nobody ever talked about it since hes still alive and somehow everyone except Marika seems to know it (but it seems that she has a hunch about it). Im looking forward to the upcoming movie to see how they finally meet. At least thats what I think the movie will be about.
The fight at the end was pretty good and while it may appear as too easy it isnt. After all Christie had to control three entire big ships, from the sensors, electronic warfare, navigation, steering and whatnot and regardless of how intelligent and trained someone is a human can only do so much so the Pirate Alliance had a big advantage over her. And Christie seemed to be really inexperienced while the Pirate Alliance had some really experienced people.
Overall it was a nice watch but it coulve been so much more if taken more serious.
6/10 from me.
