Ahoy there!  sorry, had to do it.  This week marks the premiere of Bodacious Space Pirates, the latest hit series from Satelight Studios.  To mark this special occasion, we put out a little Valentine's Day Card Contest.  A bunch of you guys sent us your submissions (awesome job!), but only one was picked unanimously by the AN Crew.  You can find the winning card HERE.  Save it and use it next year, or this year if you may have forgotten V-Day. ;_;

Anyway, if you're not familiar with the show (though the name alone should give you reason to watch it), here's some info to get you started:

Bodacious Space Pirates

Marika is living the normal life of a teenage girl in space: attending her school's yacht club, keeping up with the latest trends, and working part time at the Cafe Lamp. One day can change a lot, however, and Marika is about to find out first hand the horrors of life interrupted. Not only was her late father a notorious space pirate, but he was also the Captain of the equally notorious Benten Maru! What's worse, she's just inherited his position and the pirate's life that comes with it. Join Marika and her crew for a swashbuckling adventure through the galaxy, where crude turns to cute and mini-skirts are mandatory in Bodacious Space Pirates!

Bodacious Space Pirates ep. 1 - Pirates Coming Through is now available to watch, commercial free and in HD
