Still one of the sillier titles out there in terms of name but being excellent of content, Sentai Filmworks has revealed the finalized cover artwork for their upcoming release of the Bodacious Space Pirates: Abyss of Hyperspace feature film. The film is scheduled for a June 14th, 2016 debut from the distributor where it’ll be getting a bilingual presentation on both DVD and Blu-ray. Sentai Filmworks previously released the TV series on both formats and with a bilingual presentation as well, giving this film some solid continuity.
Plot concept: It’s not easy being the captain of a space pirate ship. Especially when you’re still in high school and aren’t allowed to do normal pirate-stuff like rob and plunder. However, despite those restrictions, Marika Kato has proven herself worthy of commanding the Bentenmaru. And if staging performances such as pretending to board and pillage space cruise ships doesn’t pay as well as actually stealing stuff… well, at least no one gets hurt, right? But things take a sinister turn when Marika and her crew are hired to raid the luxury liner Begin The Beguine. Because one of the passengers has a hidden secret and agenda of his own. And it begins with being kidnapped! Suddenly the Bentenmaru and their new “hostage” are being pursued by other warships and the race is on for what could be the biggest prize of all! Batten your hatches and prepare to have your timbers shivered as Marika and her crew set sail for their highest adventure yet in BODACIOUS SPACE PIRATES – THE MOVIE!
