Today we have 13 characters from the enjoyable recent series Bodacious Space Pirates and an addition to the Tales of Symphonia group.
For Tales of Symphonia, the entry is now complete after a good 5 years time. Panadero and I had begun watching the anime adaptation of the video game years ago and were aware that the production was slow. Aside from the that, the translation was also slow and beyond that, Panadero and I prefer to pick one translation group and stick with them if we can, so that slowed things down further. We finally finished watching the last OAV a week or two ago and, even though it took so, so, so long to complete, the entire series of episodes was both beautifully animated and very well done. With the addition of Martel to the existing characters in the entry, the Tales of Symphonia group is now complete!
We also have a surprisingly enjoyable series called Bodacious Space Pirates that I had grabbed on a whim a good while ago. I was very pleasantly surprised that my expectations of an all-fluff, no-substance, moderately fun show were completely proven wrong as there were multiple story arcs, very cute and fun characters, great character development, a pretty substantive world, and pretty solid story-telling for a show about high school girls in space. A very pleasant surprise, there are 13 characters from the show ready for your voting.
All in all, 14 characters are patiently waiting for your votes, so get to it!
