About Knights of Sidonia
This popular mecha sci-fi manga by Tsutomu Nihei is currently serialized in Kodansha's monthly magazine Afternoon. Thirteen volumes of the comic have been published in book form, and the animated TV series was broadcast in Japan April-June 2014 on MBS and other channels.Production of the second series, Knights of Sidonia: Battle for Planet Nine, has already been announced.
Story: It's been a thousand years since the Gauna, a strange alien race with no known method of communication, destroyed the solar system. A portion of humanity managed to escape using enormous "seed ships" like the Sidonia, which have allowed them to maintain the population as the ships drift through space. Nagate Tanikaze is a young man who has been raised deep in the bowels of the ship. When he goes into training to pilot the huge robotic weapons known as Gardes, Nagate is entrusted with piloting the legendary unit known as Tsugumori. Nagate and his fellow pilots put their lives on the line against the Gauna, in the ultimate battle for the survival of humanity!
