The Starship Troopers Anime Sure Wants You to Know It’s a Starship Troopers Product

When non-fans think of the Starship Troopers movie, they think of one of three things: 1) alien bugs getting violently and graphically gunned down, 2) the lines “Do you want to live forever?!” and “Do you want to know more?” and 3) Doogie Howser as a mad Nazi scientist. Since Neil Patrick Harris’ popularity and asking price has gone up since the original movie, the Starship Troopers anime is forced to stick to the previous two items in order to remind you that yes, this sure is Starship Troopers.

I’m mildly interested in the ST anime, mostly because I like the original movie, although I’m certain the anime will be taking it all incredibly seriously, and thus be missing the movie’s point completely. Still, I’ll respect the anime here infinitely if when eyepatch dude yells “Do you want to live forever?!” someone, anyone replies, “Actually, yes sir, I would like to live forever. That would actually be awesome.” (Via Kotaku)
