Moretsu Pirates doesn’t drop the pace within its latest second episode – instead, the series amps the suspense meter another level as our heroine learns of power, deciding to decisively take action as per her own will.
As result of the megane equipped seifuku shoujo’s kind assistance in enabling our heroine’s escape from a fate of kidnapping, our heroine now stands still safe and sound in maid outfit right beside her new glasses wearing friend. This mysterious spectacle fitted female of course knows a bit more than our main character in regards to pirates – and even in respect to our heroine’s own situation, yet the brunette is unwilling to say much on the matter, and neither is our heroine desperately seeking such answers.
Everyone’s core intentions are blatant as the sun on a sunny day – whilst we remain in the dark as to what exactly the attractive brunette with bad vision desires, it’s not too difficult to see she’s not a bad person at all and our heroine can certainly be at ease in her presence.
And as for our heroine, she’s not even worried – so far, seemingly every character accepts life as it is, or rather, they operate in the present. No one is dwelling on the past, nor are they investing all they’ve got into the future – they’re gambling to make the most of what they’ve currently got.
Although apparent at every turn of action, one will definitely best come to see this above mentioned item of interest as our heroine reunites with her mother shortly after saying farewell to the glasses girl. Her mother apologizes to our heroine for abstaining from revealing to her the truth of her pirate credentials, her father, as well as the entire incident in general – yet our heroine isn’t bothered at all.
She’s not drowning herself in needless concern or tears over the recent death of her father, nor is she starting up a silly fit over learning so much in so little a time – she’s simply surprised to hear it all and is contemplating her next course of action. Such emotions are those of a strong individual who can endure the unexpected of life and still set their sights on the positive.
This is a perspective which goes very rarely seen in an anime at all – the single which comes to mind being Mushishi, for those familiar with it, which indeed portrays an identical understanding of past, present, and infinite beyond, yet in a manner all so different, doing well to display how deep Moretsu Pirates is underneath the forefront visage if it can compare to such an insightful and developed title as Mushishi in emotion.
Our heroine’s mother essentially shows her daughter the meaning of a pirate, and of power – giving her a taste of the responsibility which it inevitably entitles, and rather than force her down that path, she simply assures her it is one open and available if she feels fit. Knowing this, our heroine is certainly feeling the calling of opportunity – yet she remains undecided on the matter for the time being.
Fading off into the following day, our heroine is seen to be entering the urge to adventure true to any heroic character. Her club is to be touring space in a ship they realize not is one of seven legendary pirate vessels – and aiding the growing intensity, our heroine is one who will be piloting the ship. Yet all of that is to occur the following day, as for now, our heroine sits alone with her glasses fitted friend – yet as the two converse, it’s seen that electronic attacks are targeting the ship.
These hacking attempts are not particularly impressive – yet it gradually becomes apparent a significant entity is struggling to access the ship through its communication line. Rather than simply pull the plug on the network, our heroine is enthusiastic at the idea of “electronic warfare” – wanting to fight back against this cowardly unseen party, and with relative ease, she convinces her megane sporting friend to take up acting as well, thus leaving the episode to end on a note of hype no different than the last.
And with that, we await the moment our heroine finally adorns the pirate ensemble.
