Synopsis

For the 73rd class of cadets of the Defense University of the small planet Kibi, a shakedown cruise on the fleet's new starship "Amaterasu" is a fitting lead-up to graduation. As they are returning to their home planet, however, they are shocked to hear news of a declaration of war by the aggressive Kingdom against Kibi. When their planetary government surrenders without a struggle, the cadets decide to launch their own war, aboard the "Amaterasu". To gain funding, they make a deal with a galactic news network - and find themselves the "stars" of their own "reality show". Unfortunately, this is the kind of reality show that can get you killed...

I must admit that I started this show because one of my favorite singers performed in it (Mami Kawada). Though I do enjoy the science fiction genre so Starship Operators seemed to be a perfect match. So let’s get on with the review!

The story is mixed for me. This is a serious story that for the most part is pretty good. It does a good job of giving you an overview of the universe in which the plot takes place in and moves along pretty steadily. The story revolves around a group of cadets for the military of Kibi on their read more

Short series. 13 episodes over 3 disks. I almost did not finish it because the premise was almost too unbelievable (yes, I like Anime's to have some sense of reality). Artwork was very good (Animation mixed in with CGI). The thing that kept me watching was how realistically the creators portrayed the world in which the show takes place. The physics of space, maneuvering, battles, all the way down to how a teardrop should behave in zero-G made this series very interesting. Yes, yes, there is an occasional space warp, but space battles are not fever-pitched like most SF shows. The ships actually take days read more

Ok, to start off, I would like to point out I am not fond of writing reviews, but I just felt like it for this one, mainly because I sat through whole show with only a few short breaks.


STORY:

When I first read description for this show, I thought to myself: "Just like Infinite Ryvius", and I was partially correct. But only partially. Story about young kids fighting whole kingdom on their own, being rejected again and again is nothing new, but it's the way story was told that made it enjoyable. It may not be the best story ever, but I find it to my read more

Starship Operators is primarily a space opera and as such follows the events through the eye's of the crew members of the spaceship Amateras. The story has an original twist compared to other titles for the genre because the crew members rebel and decide to take on the entire invading military estabilisement single-handedly in their state-of-the-art vessel. In addition, the young crew is corned into making a deal with a TV network in order to gain funds to finance their campaign by accepting to be filmed 24/7 - much akin to reality tv.

The series typically uses CG to handle their spaceship read more
