* OutOfFocus: Chiaki, who gets a lot of screentime in the opening and closing credits, goes down in importance shortly after Gruier is introduced around episode 8, but she makes some appearances here and there, then shows up again during the Hakuoh Pirates arc around episode 15, and seems to be making a full comeback as an important character again around episode 22 onwards.

** In the second episode Kane stresses to Marika that becoming her teacher and yacht club adviser was all just a coincidence. Kane and Marika's English voice actors are Chris Patton and Luci Christian who voiced Souske and Kaname from ''LightNovel/FullMetalPanic'' who had a very similar conversation in one of the early episodes in regards to Souske following her around.

* BoardingParty: ''Bentenmaru'' deploys something that looks out of ''Film/PiratesOfTheCaribbean'' for their normal jobs on liners. The Ghost Ship arc also shows that the same boarding party is ''quite'' competent at actual boarding operations a naval vessel would undertake.

* VillainForgotToLevelGrind: The ''Grand Cross'', [[spoiler: which delivered quite a few {{Curb Stomp Battle}}s to the pirates near the end of the anime series, is defeated rather easily by Marika and her fellow pirates in the final episode. It's largely due to the captain being cocky and overconfident, as well as ''Bentenmaru'' crew surviving a couple of attacks by the ship, and by now learning about the various tricks and tactics it uses in combat and adapting counter-strategies against them.]]

** Someone needs to talk to Lynn about that, though. She has her finger on the trigger when she sticks her gun under a guy's chin.
*** They were all cosplaying though, so it might've been a toy gun.
*** No, she fired it when they first entered the ballroom.
