After Over your dead body and Yakuza apocalypse, he adresses the cult manga by Yū Sasuga and Kenichi Tachibana, already adapted several times in TV shows and OVAs. A punk rewritting of Starship Troopers by the author of Dead or Alive, gorged with special effects and epic fight scenes for a gonzo-style, uninhibited result.
