I normally don’t post about individual DVD series I watch until I can aggregate a bunch of them into one post, but this isn’t a normal series. I’m a David Weber fan, and enjoy the sort of political intrigue combined with the slow paced combat that his books provide. 

Starship Operators is probably the first TV show I’ve seen that really captures the essence of this sort of space combat and political intrigue all at once. It’s a little shallower on all fronts than most novels, but it’s hard to fit as much into a 13 episode series of 22 minute shows, and it is deeper than many space combat oriented novels I’ve read. If you’re a fan of space combat novels, then you really should watch this even if you’re not an anime fan. I place this one amongst my top few for all types of anime. Cowboy Bebop is one of the few I would put in the same class as this, and it’s hard to say which one is really better between the two. If you’re on netflix, then it’s only 3 dvd’s worth of rental…
