In 1988, the anime studio {{Sunrise}} produced an unauthorized 6-episode ''Starship Troopers'' {{OVA}}. Although the series was widely considered to be more faithful to the novel than the Verhoeven movie, and devoted much more time to Rico's training than to the BugWar, it still showed clear signs of AdaptationDecay. One thing everyone agrees on about this version: the PoweredArmor is there, and it is ''awesome''.
