If there seems like a lot of

If there seems like a lot of Starship Troopers parallels I believe it's because Hajime Isayama is both a fan of Muv-Luv and friends with its creator, Yoshimune Kouki. Isayama even did some crossover art including a Takemikazuchi punching a Titan.

Rocket Skirts!

A fan of Muv-Luv? That would explain why they both have rocket skirts as a way to get around.

Ender's Game for a New Generation

While I see you guys made a mention of Starship Troopers with how the action plays out in this show, and from not watching it myself since I like to get out of the sphere of influence anyway, the whole scenario with the main character's journey to become a member of the Survey Corps alone made me think of that book I had to read back in the 9th or 10th grade. Back then I thought it was an interesting story all it's own and would've loved to see it animated as a feature or a TV series (wishes that went unfulfilled, since I would've wanted to produce it myself). Of course I also see a live-action feature adaptation of said book just out so, why bother I suppose.

Once Jeremy finishes the season...

...I feel like we need to have a conversation about the show's really weird politics.

Also, how the hell did I get through this podcast without making a reference to Hobbes' Leviathan?
