Sidonia no Kishi
Sidonia no Kishi Next Season Release Date: TBA
Knights of Sidonia is a television adaptation of the eponymous manga that kicked off in 2014 on MBS. A second season, subtitled Battle for Planet Nine, was launched on April 10, 2015 and came to an end on June 26, 2015. The anime is created by the Polygon Pictures studio, directed by K?bun Shizuno (Season 1) and Hiroyuki Seshita (Season 2), and is based on the original script written by Sadayuki Murai; music by Noriyuki Asakura. Netflix has licensed the anime series (streaming rights) in North America.

Notable that both seasons of the mecha anime have a pretty high rating among the viewers. On MyAnimeList, Knights of Sidonia has a score of 7.85/10 based on over 63,400 votes; Season 2 has a score of 7.93/10 based on over 33,400 votes.


Set in the far future, in 3394, Knights of Sidonia depict the story of humans who managed to leave our green planet after invasion of the Gauna, a race of shapeshifting aliens. People created numerous huge spacecrafts using the remains of Earth. One such vessel bears the name Sidonia. People who reside on Sidonia have their own human culture similar to those of Japan. As turned out later, the elites of Sidonia are immortal. Apparently, Sidonia is the last human settlement in space, given the fact that it serves a shelter for half a million people. It's unknown for sure what happened to other vessels.

At the same time, mankind doesn't have any data regarding the true nature of the Gauna, and why they pursue humans. What is their real purpose and why they attack human vessels is unclear as well. The only thing is clear that Each Gauna has its own unbreakable core which is hidden behind a mass of unknown substance described as placenta (ena). If someone able to destroy ena, this may help to wipe out the Gauna.

Most people serve as pilots, who pass through the intense workouts since their childhood. These pilots steer the immense mechanized weapons known as Gardes. A storyline focuses on the adventures of Garde pilot Nagate Tanikaze who grew up under the guardianship of his grandfather. He passes through hard training in an old Guardian pilot simulator. As a result, he becomes a professional pilot who might protect his home, Sidonia, against the evil Gauna aliens.

MBS is yet to decide will Sidonia no Kishi be renewed for a next season or canceled. Stay tuned for updates. We'll keep you informed on the subject!
