Honorifics are words which are used when addressing or referring to people, providing certain connotations. In Japanese, the language in which the Miniskirt Pirates/Mouretsu Pirates series was originally released, a wide array of honorific suffixes are used, attached to a person's given or family name, and are generally an important part of everyday speech.
