understated stories
19 December 2001 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

This is the story of the pirate ship Sol Bianca and her all-female crew named after months of the year. As you may know Sol Bianca was intended to be a three-part series in 1991 but only two episodes were produced. In 1999 they restarted the series but the characters and spaceship look much the same as before. For some reason our lead character April looks kind of ugly in some scenes. Perhaps it is because she frowns a lot.

The show opens with a dramatic musical theme which I like. The visuals are pretty cool. It looks like computer graphics were used for the ship's flying sequences. One nice scene is the AI's boot-up procedure where you see a woman's face and a tree blooming (which I assume is a graphical representation of ship's commands and controls).

There are six episodes in the Legacy series and I found the stories moody and underexplained. For instance in the original series they gave you enough hints to figure out June's secret but in The Legacy you had to look carefully to figure out what it was. A freeze frame was useful in one key flashback. When the crew was taken hostage I got confused about which scenes were flashback and which scenes were now. There were other points that I missed that my brother had to explain like the significance of the terraforming project.

I wonder if this show was Pioneer's answer to Bandai's Cowboy Bebop? If you liked the original series then you will probably like The Legacy as well.
