Weekly ED: Mouretsu Pirates

Bodacious Space Pirates, part of the excellent Sci-Fi trio of two winters past, delivered exactly what its title promised: highly entertaining sci-fi swashbuckling with a lovable cast of colorful characters, decent production values, and a great sense of overall scale and adventure. We always looked forward to the ED, not because the episode was over (that was sad) but because we liked the ED theme so much.

It’s called “Lost Child” by Momoiro Clover Z, with featured booming base (a good subwoofer is recommended), a slick beat, and vocals that switch from highly distorted rapping to crisp, clear belt-outs. The visuals are pretty straightforward, showing the different sides of Marika and then some very simple walking forward but the music is what drives it.
