Review: Bodacious Space Pirates The Movie ABYSS OF HYPERSPACE - Marika Katoh 1/8 Complete Figure by MegaHouse

-----Based on our Japanese blog-----

Yarrrr me hearties! This is first mate Meshi, here ta serve up another helping of figure reviews. The space-age swashbucklers in Bodacious Space Pirates don't speak like the buccaneers of yore, but that's not going to stop ol' Meshi from having a jolly good time writing this review! Today I fix me one good eye upon Marika Katoh as she appears in the movie ABYSS OF HYPERSPACE. Let's weigh anchor and hoist the maiden!

Bodacious Space Pirates The Movie ABYSS OF HYPERSPACE - Marika Katoh 1/8 Complete Figure [MegaHouse]

Love ahoy! Marika sits upon the mark of the Bentenmaru in a downright regal pose. Red is a color usually reserved for the ship wench, but say any such this about this lassie and I'll have ye walkin' the plank.

Shiver me timbers there be a lot of detail fer a 1/8 figure! Avast ye the gold trim, frills, gradated braid, belts, buckles and hat worthy of Blackbeard himself.

Marika's red hair burns brighter than the sinking ships of 'er enemies, with a spirit thrice hot! I tell ye she be the only captain in the Serenity Star System who can wear a plaid skirt and not face a mutiny.

The winds blow in our favor! The meticulously sculpted coat and cape fluster about while Marika sails right into me heart.

Yo ho ho that be no dead man's chest! Sadly the cape keeps us from scrubbin' Marika's poop deck, but all fer the better. It'll be Davy Jones' locker if ye don't remove yer peepers from the captain's thighs. And don’t let me catch you gandering at 'er tiny waist getting the squeeze from that belt, ye scurvy dog! 

A view from the crow's nest give us insight on the source material's title, Miniskirt Space Pirate. Ol' Meshi's gone three sheets to the wind on account of Marika's seafaring legs! Arrrrrrrr!

Give 'er hat the ole heave ho and display her without it be ye so inclined.

Land, sea or space, light novel, manga or anime--Captain Marika's charm never falters. Trust yer first mate when me say that this booty is worth every last piece of eight in the galaxy!
