YMMV: Bodacious Space Pirates

  • Awesome Music: The score. Mainly Daikoukai Jidai, the bit of music playing during the Introduction Sequences and Next Time trailers of each episode.
    • The Ear Worm of an opening and (regular) ending could also count.
      • Especially the full version of the opening.
      • The full version of the ending is pretty much the definition of Crowning Music of Awesome. You know, if you cranked the trope Up to Eleven.
    • Hakuoh Jogakuin, the Leitmotif of Jenny and the Yacht Club, which plays the Adventurous Irish Violins to the hilt.
  • Crack Ship: Chiaki/Parfait. Given her Les Yay with Marika, some have suggested a three-way relationship. Four-way if you include Gruier. Just three consenting girls and a consenting chocolate dessert.
    • Marika/Hat.
  • Ear Worm: Holy GOD, the opening theme by Momoiro Clover Z! It's like J-pop on speed, but damn is it catchy!
    • Don't forget the Ending theme, done by the same artist, as well. It's got a really nice techno beat to it.
    • And Hakuouh Jogakuin, a little song which is essentially the Yacht Club's leitmotif.
  • Launcher of a Thousand Ships: Marika, so much in the yuri fandom.
  • Les Yay: Quite subtle aside from Jenny and Lynn. Marika/Chiaki. Marika/Gruiernote  Marika/Mami. No wonder some fans joke about Marika's "harem".
  • Romantic Two-Girl Friendship/Ship Tease: No puns intended. Between Marika and Gruier. Misa at one point even sees them as prince and princess as they infiltrate the ghost ship.
  • Series Continuity Error: At the beginning of episode 16 there's a wide external shot of the hospital station, which shows the Bentenmaru docked with it, even though the Yacht Club is actually out sailing in it, preparing to make a pirate raid.
  • Shipping: The anime has gotten some attention from the yuri fandom thanks to its large amount of female cast and the fact that Word of God stated that there is no romance. Yuri fans presumed that he meant "there is no male/female romance", especially after Jenny and Lynn started exploring each other's tonsils onscreen. And with that said, Marika gets shipped with a lot of girls, specifically Chiaki, Gruier, Grunhilde, and Mami. Interestingly enough, Marika and all those girls are seen together in one part of the ED sequence.
  • Shipper on Deck: Chiaki's dad, of all the people, is implied to ship his own daughter with Marika.
