Differences from Light NovelEdit


Opening NarrationEdit

"The Serenity Stellar Monarchy...A federation of seven old planets that have not undergone planetary modification. The leader of this federation is the blue planet Serenity. With ancient history and beautiful natural environments, this truly is a fairy tale kingdom. But even here, there are many who desire independence from the Galactic Empire. Amidst these surprisingly complicated circumstances, the seventh princess, Princess Gruier, sneaks aboard the Bentenmaru alone, and now...A pirate adventure begins!"

Next Episode PreviewEdit

"Amidst swirling tides and black clouds, friend and enemy collide. Is the captain's judgement courageous or rash? The blood of royals. The blood of pirates. What future fate awaits the two girls? Next time, on Mouretsu Pirates: Battle in the Storm. Look forward to it."

Ending QuoteEdit

"The illegal skill 'faking attendance'" (what Gruier came to the yacht club for)



  • During the original broadcast, on one of the monitors, the pursuing Serenity ships were all labelled as 'Maracot-class' as opposed to 'Corback-class' and 'Talbot-class'. This was corrected in the Blu-Ray release.
