Anime — Starship Troopers

I've not read Heinlein's novel -- it wasn't in print when I was in my teens and could have read it without noticing the politics; but I've read enough about it to realise that anime Juan Rico is rather blue-eyed and blond for a Puerto Rican...

So, I don't know how faithful an adaptation it is of the parts that it keeps -- just up to a first engagement on an alien world -- and have to take it as a rich boy joins up, survives the system and gets the girl story, for which it is competently done.

You can tell from the style that it's 20 years old and rescued from laser-disk.
