Bodacious Space Pirates Blu-ray Collection 1 (Hyb)
Watcher O. Anime - Oct 27 2012
Amazing Visuals, Blu-Ray Worth it
This is a breathtakingly beautiful anime that truly benefits from watching in high def. You are getting your money's worth if you do decide to buy the BD. In terms of story this is a surprising gem. It has great action scenes and has the right balance of comedy vs seriousness.
Just as a warning there is a same sex (girl-girl/yuri) couple that briefly kiss on screen. This is between two secondary characters and is not the lead. This kiss, a few hugs and holding hands a few times is all they show of it and it isn't blatant in your face. It isn't paraded around like these relationships are some times. The relationship is shown and treated just like a heterosexual one would be and is an organic part of the show that outside of being same-sex wouldn't warrant a comment.
By the way the lead is female but doesn't have any kind of romantic relationships. For her they mostly explore bonds of loyalty and friendship.
