In Which Japan and Hollywood Apologize to Robert A. Heinlein

A trailer for Starship Troopers: Invasion. Anime directed by the Appleseed guy. English script by American guys who obviously paid attention in Heinlein class. Might be good. It’s a new story, though. You can tell because the guy in command is identified (in katakana) as Johnny Rico, and because they’re reenacting Alien at some parts.

And nah, Rico doesn’t look super-Hispanic, but more Hispanic than Doogie. (Which isn’t to say that there aren’t some very blond people in Hispanic countries. Lots of immigrants, too.)

As we all know, Japan has had a lot of power-suit animes which were vaguely based on Heinlein’s work and concepts, but I think this is the first one that actually licensed out Starship Troopers.
