Coyote Ragtime Show
A solid action anime made by Ufotable back when they don't make TYPE-MOON stuffs. Coyote Ragtime Show is a short but intensely fun Space Pirate anime. For such solid overall quality, i still wonder why the series doesn't seem to be that popular and just end up to be anime of the season, i suppose it is not up to the taste of Japanese. Coyote Ragtime Show tells the story of two groups of Space Pirates racing down for a Space Pirate King treasure. One group is led by the Pirate King's best buddy who's an infamous Space Pirate by himself and taking care of his buddy's daughter while the other side is led by a powerful Female Space Pirate who murdered the Pirate King himself in the past and led 12 Gothic Lolitas battle maid android as elite squads.
For a Sci-fi anime Coyote Ragtime Show gets a solid score as its intense actions and compelling story will get you hooked into the series. Best comparison would be that Coyote Ragtime Show is what Baccano will look like if it had futuristic setting and the latter is awesome anime. On the sidenote, the Space Pirate King kinda resemble Tokiomi from Fate/Zero and the Twelve Maids are quite nice eyecandy especially their leader named April which is the character in the header pics of this post. So if you are sick of Shonen protagonists and prefer characters who relies on their wits to solve their issues in a Sci-fi setting, Coyote Ragtime Show is a good choice. I suppose the series got better charm for Western Audiences and i think i will give a watch to Outlaw Stars or Cowboy Bebop eventually.
