At the beginning of each episode of Mouretsu Pirates (with the exception of Sailing 13 and 26) and during the preview for the next episode, there is a piece of narration (later revealed to be by Ironbeard/Gonzaemon Kato). This is a list of those narrations and where they are from.

Recruitment ArcEdit

Sailing 01Edit

OpeningEdit

"While the Galactic Empire expanded its power, and began absorbing neighbouring star systems, some of the outer frontier planets maintained independent governments. The third planet in the Tau Ceti system, Sea of the Morning Star, was a newly settled frontier planet. As with most newly settled planets, once generations passed, and its population increased, relations with its overseer, the Stellar Alliance, worsened. And a war of independence began. To complement their meager fleet, the government of the Sea of the Morning Star issued a new type of edict, the Letter of Marque. Papers in hand, space pirates attacked Stellar Alliance vessels, greatly contributing to the revolution's success. This story begins more than one hundred years later, the war having ended in a surprising fashion."

PreviewEdit

"A bad situation. Adults scheming. A girl from a frontier planet, whom they expected to easily control. But she has the simplest and strongest weapon. What power does she possess? Next time, on Mouretsu Pirates: My Power, The Power of Pirates. Look forward to it."

Sailing 02Edit

OpeningEdit

"Interstellar travel was once a one-way trip, with no possibility of returning. After immeasureable sacrifice, humanity miraculously found a watery planet within the habitable zone of a spectral class-G star. This planet, named "Sea of the Morning Star", received extensive funding as one of the earliest colonized planets. And now..."

PreviewEdit

"Her first electronic battle. Her first practice cruise. The tides of fate pull the girl towards the great sea. Will the sparkle of space that she sees tell her? Next time, on Mouretsu Pirates: The Odette II Leaves Port. Look forward to it."

Sailing 03Edit

OpeningEdit

"There are various strategies employed by space pirates. Some involve frontal assaults, guns blazing, some involve waiting in ambush, and some use boarding parties and man-to-man combat. But regardless which is used, bringing the enemy ship's systems under your control is critical. Electronic warfare is a quiet battle, fought without guns or hand-to-hand combat. The losing ship cedes control of its life support systems to the enemy."

PreviewEdit

"A mysterious shadow follows the fun practice cruise. What is the best choice she's made, not as potential captain of a pirate ship, but as a normal high school girl, as a member of the yacht club? Next time, on Mouretsu Pirates: The Final Battle is at Midnight. Look forward to it."

Sailing 04Edit

OpeningEdit

"In outer space, there isn't an absolute left, right, up, or down. It all depends on your relative position. Understand where you've come from and where you're going, which way you're facing, and you'll know your current position. Confronted by the vastness of space, you may be disoriented by how small you are. But overcoming that feeling is your first step in outer space."

PreviewEdit

"A mysterious, armed vessel lies in wait. Do the yacht club's frail members have any chance to win? They use all their weapons to the best of their abilities, and their resolve opens the way. What is it that Marika sees then? Next time, on Mouretsu Pirates: Marika Makes a Decision. Look forward to it."

Sailing 05Edit

OpeningEdit

"Transponders are a broadcasting device required to be active on all ships in order to notify others of their presence. A ship's name, registry, present location and heading...The transponder's information is human will and goals. When sailors understand one another's ships, the quietness of space becomes a golden sea. In this era, space is still filled with memories of the great age of exploration."

PreviewEdit

"The girl has made her decision. What was supposed to be a fun summer vacation has become difficult training. The expectations of the people around her...Her own nervousness...Amidst all this, her first voyage as a pirate begins. Next time, on Mouretsu Pirates: Marika's First Day at Work. Look forward to it."

Sailing 06Edit

OpeningEdit

"Living in space, you may be called upon to make split-second decisions at any time. In space, there's neither air around you, nor ground to step upon. And a single, minor mistake may prove fatal. Once aboard a spaceship, you must continue making the right decisions. But that is what it means to live in space. Kato Marika was a master of these decisions. One with the true right to be a citizen of space."

PreviewEdit

"Great resolve turns to everyday life, and peace sets in. But that is only temporary. A pirate's days are never dull. How will the girl pirate captain read the fierce winds? Next time, on Mouretsu Pirates: Peace Does Not Last. Look forward to it."

Golden Ghost Ship ArcEdit

Sailing 07Edit

OpeningEdit

"The Letter of Marque...The letter itself is passed down, with a new name and date written inside. After an endless mountain of paperwork, Kato Marika has succeeded in earning the right to become captain of the space pirate ship Bentenmaru. However, this is only the start of what she must do to be recognized by others as a pirate captain. Stay strong, Kato Marika! Fight, Kato Marika! Space awaits you."

PreviewEdit

"Gales winds blow from a foreign land. How will the girl captain decide to deal with her tiny but noble stowaway? The two girls meet, and the sealed darkness of history begins to move once more. Next time, on Mouretsu Pirates: The Princess and The Pirate. Look forward to it."

Sailing 08Edit

OpeningEdit

"The third planet in the Tau Ceti system, Sea of the Morning Star. As with most newly settled planets, once generations passed, and its population increased, relations with its overseer, the Stellar Alliance, worsened. And a war of independence began. To complement their meager fleet, the government of the Sea of the Morning Star issued Letters of Marque. And legal space pirates were born. Over a hundred years have passed since the war's end, and this is a story of pirates sailing the seas of space."

PreviewEdit

"Multiple factions within the royal palace. As the princess struggles against them alone, the girl offers her hand. What is the golden ghost ship that holds the key to ending the struggle? Destiny leads the girl into wider seas. Next time, on Mouretsu Pirates: A Beautiful Launch. Look forward to it."

Sailing 09Edit

OpeningEdit

"The Serenity Stellar Monarchy...A federation of seven old planets that have not undergone planetary modification. The leader of this federation is the blue planet Serenity. With ancient history and beautiful natural environments, this truly is a fairy tale kingdom. But even here, there are many who desire independence from the Galactic Empire. Amidst these surprisingly complicated circumstances, the seventh princess, Princess Gruier, sneaks aboard the Bentenmaru alone, and now...A pirate adventure begins!"

Papers in hand, space pirates attacked Stellar Alliance vessels, greatly contributing to the revolution's success. This story begins more than one hundred years later."

PreviewEdit

"The interstellar, multi-generation colony ship, which once carried the people of Serenity...Though lacking an FTL drive, it boasted a cyclical regeneration system that kept most of its passengers in cold sleep during its search for a habitable planet.
