Bodacious Space Pirates

  • 1


When her estranged father passed away, Marika Kato has found herself unsuspectingly inheriting a pirate ship called the Bentenmaru, and it’s crew. By law, the ship’s captaincy must be inherited by direct blood relatives and as the only living relative; Marika must take charge if the crew of the ship wishes to continue on their adventures.


But what’s a girl supposed to do when you’re just in high school and the only experience you’ve had in space are your rides in the space yacht club? For Marika, the answer is simple, but juggling life between being a student, her part time job and being the captain of a pirate ship is easier said than done.


Nevertheless whatever happens, arm yourselves for a swashbuckling adventure across the galaxy in Bodacious Space Pirates!


  • Marika Kato

    Marika Kato was just suppose to be an ordinary student until her estrange father passes away and now she's the captain of a pirate ship? Juggling with life as a student and the captain of a legal pirate ship is a tall order to ask for a teenager but Marika is willing to take on the challenge.
