Editorial Reviews

The geo-political stakes are raised when the Amaterasu arrives on the planetary nation of Shu. As the Former Prime Minister Mamiya appeals to Shu's government for support, Shinon and the female crew revel in their reality-television celebrity status on the most popular show in the galaxy. But their joy is brought to a grinding halt when a revolutionary force in Shu government stages a sudden coup d'etat and tries to use Amatersu's crew as a tool for negotiation.The geo-political stakes are raised when the Amaterasu arrives on the planetary nation of Shu.

4.0 out of 5 stars compelling sci-fi anime November 28, 2008
"Starship Operators" is the story of the starship Amaterasu. On the maiden voyage, the military that the corps serves is dissolved when the ship's home world surrenders to the Henrietta Alliance. The brave crew members find themselves on a state of the art military craft without a sovereign planet to serve. The series shows how a crew of cadets presses on. In this respect, the premise calls to mind "Star Blazers" meets Star Trek's Red Squad. The series is a curious combination of two schools of storytelling. On one hand, this is a serious science-fiction drama. "Starship Operators" employs politics, military strategy, science and the psychology of combat. The series gives a compelling prediction of how the media may come to dominate interstellar life. The show offers a fascinating look at how technology may be advanced yet simultaneously familiar. On the other hand, this show is very teen friendly. Many of the character strands deal with gushy romances and interpersonal female relationships that will greatly appeal to high school girls. The voyeuristic shots of the female cadet's legs will appeal to the guys. While there are great combat scenes, much of the story is character driven. "Starship Operators" is in many respects a coming of age story. Some viewers will embrace one of these schools of storytelling and reject the other. To fully appreciate "Starship Operators," the viewer will have to reconcile the teeny-bopper and sci-fi geek forces. While I personally lean towards the geek end of this spectrum, I am ultimately able to make peace with the dual ingredients. Read more ›

4.0 out of 5 stars A SAFE HARBOR? May 8, 2006
By Sesho
I have to admit that I wasn't very impressed with the first volume of this series. It seemed formulaic what with the battleship duel of the week format and also the contrived filming of a reality show as these young men and women strove to stick it out against a powerful enemy, and outnumbered and alone, tried to gain back some dignity for their humiliated nation. But there was something about it, just a gleam that made me reluctantly try the second volume. I am very happy that I made that decision because this second volume which plays less episodic and gets the characters involved in life or death decisions hits the mark. That was another thing I had against the first disk: These kids didn't really have much empathy for their enemy and would just blow them away, killing hundreds or even thousands with hardly a bat of an eye. In the second volume we actually see some remorse and reluctance to take another's life, which makes all the difference in how you feel about these characters.

The Amaterasu has finally found a friend, at least what "seems" like a friend on the Planetary Nation of Shu. Not everyone in the galaxy supports the right of the Kingdom to invade and annex another state. Some of the highest ranking officers of the battleship are split up attending various functions on the planet which doesn't make for a very safe situation. The situation worsens as civil unrest, stoked by the Kingdom and its agents in the Shu government, breaks out among the populace, with some supporting the Starship Operators and others deadset against them. The crew must make some deadly choices if they all want to make it back to the Amaterasu in one piece. Even if they do make it back, they will have to face a contingent of Kingdom starships, one of which is equipped with an unknown weapon.

4.0 out of 5 stars Reminds me of Star Blazers in a good way. October 10, 2013

Definitely a good storyline and art work as well. Not into giving spoiler but do recommend it as a buy on the low end if possible.
