During the spring break before Marika's third year at Hakuoh Academy, Marika's days are busy with work at Lamp House, with the yacht club and aboard the Bentenmaru. Due to a number of subspace accidents which have recently occurred, various pirate jobs are being cancelled one after another. Marika is contacted by Jenny Dolittle to carry out a 'raid' on one of Fairy Jane's liners, the Begin The Beguine. Noticing a certain name on the passenger list, Marika requests a little addition to the performance.

Meanwhile, a young boy named Kanata Mugen is being pursued. After boarding the Begin The Beguine, Kanata is cornered by his pursuers, but at that moment, the Bentenmaru begins the raid on the liner. During the performance, Marika directs a question in Kanata's direction; "What colour lies at the end of subspace?". Understanding the meaning of this phrase, Kanata loudly demands that the pirates take him hostage rather than threaten the passengers.

After being taken aboard the Bentenmaru to the cheers of the audience, Kanata asks Marika if she knows him and learns that his father had entrusted the Bentenmaru's captain with a certain task. As the Bentenmaru leaves the liner, it is pursued by three mysterious warships. Thus begins a journey in search of the legacy left behind by Kanata's father, Professor Mugen...

  • The teaser which was released on August 31st 2013 features many keywords which are related to the series and the movie, with seven important ones highlighted (these include Bentenmaru, FTL Jump, Kanata Mugen, Subspace Turbulence, Flint system and Letter of Marque).
  • There have been various redesigns for certain characters, ships, locations and mechanisms, including a redesigned interior for ships like the Bentenmaru and distinctive character designs for the Barbaroosa bridge crew (identifying them as the crewmembers from the novels).
  • According to director Tatsuo Satō, voice recording for the film was completed in a single day, in a 12 hour session.[5]
  • Schnitzer's mouth doesn't move in the film like it did in the anime series.
  • The idea of Marika obtaining a shuttle license and flying herself to and from the Bentenmaru was previously discussed during the Pirate Hunter Arc [6].
  • Chiaki refers to the yacht club's previous pirating experience as the Hakuoh Pirates when agreeing to let them try to help Marika and Kanata in space [7][8][9][10].
  • Lerad's - Flyer
    On the flyer for the opening of the Lerad's New Okuhama restaurant, closing hours listed exceed 24:00. Whether this is a mistake, 28:00 being used instead of 04:00, or indicates that the hours in a day on the Sea of the Morning Star actually exceed 24 isn't known.


  • When the Hakuoh emblem spins to the Sea of the Morning Star in the opening sequence, the emblem itself is flipped such that the words are back-to-front.
