Space Pirate Mito (宇宙海賊ミトの大冒険 Uchū Kaizoku Mito no Daibōken) alternatively called Stellar Buster Mito (in its Japanese source version),[1] is an anime series from 1999. It was produced in two seasons at 13 episodes each. Director was Takashi Watanabe, and the series was animated at the studio Triangle Staff. Furthermore there was a theatrical production of the series, during the year 2000.[2]

The first series of the farcical sci-fi title mainly revolves around the small space pirate Mito and her fights with and flights from the galactic police force, as well as her relationship with her half-human Earthling son Aoi, initially largely ignorant of his mother's spacefaring life.[3] The first series ends with Aoi, having become a girl due to a biological quirk of Mito's species, crowned queen of the galaxy as a result of Mito's campaigns, and the second focuses on her and the pirates, now court soldiers, facing the challenges that come with her new office.[4] Both series have been released on DVD in the United States.

Characters[edit]

  • Mito Mitsukuni (ミト / 光国美都 Mitsukuni Mito; voice: Tomoko Kawakami)
  • Ranban
  • Azuki
  • Sukesaburō ("Sabu")
  • Kakunoshin ("Shin")

Mito Kōmon references[edit]

A couple of "internal" jokes poke fun at the famous Japanese TV series Mito Kōmon. In episode two Mito, introduces Sabu and Shin with their complete names, Sukesaburō and Kakunoshin. These also happen to be the names of Mitsukuni's two devote followers (abbreviated as Suke-san – 助さん – and Kaku-san – 格さん – in the TV-series).
