I have to say that Sidonia no Kishi sure got a lot darker than before. I mean, the show always had a dark atmosphere about it and the story was dramatic even in the first season. Characters are always dying all over the place.
Will this season be an exception? No. In fact, it seems even darker due to the fact that the protagonist has to fight on two fronts now. His home, Sidonia, is being overrun by corrupted characters and parasitic creatures and everything outside is even worse. Nagate will have his hands full. Now he has to fight off a whole swarm of Gauna as they switched from defence to offense by launching a full-scale attack on (one of) the Gauna’s spawn planet to try and stop those things from multiplying even more. It’s hard enough to fight one of them from what I’ve seen so far.
Okay, so the hybrid was sent out once again to serve as a live example of what it’s capable of. That’s fine, I’m sure it’s strong, but it’s also very stupid because it’s so young. That thing got trapped right away and things are once again left to Nagate and the brave soldiers that are on their way to save that chimera creature.
Do they stand a chance? Sure. They focussed on the fact that a lot of those mechs have been upgraded with better, lighter armour. They will probably last longer, but I doubt that’s going to be enough. I’m pretty sure that Nagate will once again emerge a hero and safe that chimera so that they can kill those creatures together.Read More
I am running out of time and I am therefor forced to keep this post short and simple, which is a shame. This episode was quite interesting and filled with a lot of action. The story might actually have a purpose right now.
So Leonardo was using his eyes to their fullest in order to see what the hell was going on. It might cost him his vision if he keeps going like this, but at least he saw what needed to be seen; hundreds of vampires that could very end up taking over the world. It seems that nobody is prepared for any of that, especially since two of Klaus’ best men couldn’t even take down one without his help.
I mean, they thought there were only thirteen of them. Now it seems that there are close to a thousand of them. You cannot battle that kind of army with a small group of “special” people. But then it occurred to me that Leonardo can see the aura of “special” people. He could use that to track down people like them so that they can be recruited. I don’t see any other way for them to fight right now.Read More
Okay, fine, I will admit that I could really use some action right about now. I am seeing too much of the same thing and it is getting a tad bit boring. At least we got to see how Mikaela became a vampire, I guess…
I must admit that it does make sense. His desire to keep his friends save and out of the hands of those vampires is what set him apart from other people. He was one of those rare ones that willingly sacrificed himself for others. Too bad that it ended up becoming his greatest flaw; he ended up fatally wounded and at the mercy of some vampire queen, whom decided to turn him into one of her kind against his will. Why? There are a number of possibilities, but I am guessing she either wanted an interesting toy or another servant/soldier to do her bidding. Why else, right?
This works, for now. Mikaela is working towards a goal; finding his long lost friend, Yuuichirou. And Yuuichirou is working towards a goal of his own; gaining power so that he can slay vampires and monsters. This works because the two of them are not really aware of each other’s situation as of yet. This will change soon though.
I am not even going to focus on Yuuichirou’s school nonsense right now. It is beginning to bore me. I’ll just end this post with a guess. I am guessing that Mikaela will either join forces with Yuuichirou to fight against the vampires or that the two of them will fight to the death and that Yuuichirou will be the one left standing at the end. I’m putting my money on door number one for the time being.Read More
Another nice episode. So what is there was very little action? I believe this will lead up to an interesting new chapter that will undoubtedly entertain me throughout the show. I especially like how high-paced this all seems.
So Bell-kun decided to tell his advisor about his insane increase in stats. He showed her and she couldn’t believe how much he had progressed in so little time. I also noticed that she did not notice that he has obtained a rare skill, which is probably why her attitude towards him stayed more or less the same. In fact, she, probably in his best interest, took him out shopping for armour. The guy has been going to those dungeons without proper equipment all this time. At one point it might not go as smoothly and he’ll end up taking a hit or two. Armour would definitely come in handy during that time.
Also, Bell-kun found out about his goddess’ new job. Yes, he has a shiny new knife that will help him reach the top, but there was a price to be paid by Hestia. God only knows how long she has to work there for her to pay back all that money. But hey, Hestia is friends with that other goddess so it’s not like those terms are unreasonable.
And finally; I can see it coming from a mile away. Bell-kun is being baited by that little midget that’s only after that special knife of his. If I remember correctly; that knife can only be used by someone with certain ambition or something like that. She is going to try it again and that goddess of beauty is going to try and mess with Bell-kun again. Things are going to get rough for him again…Read More
Not a bad episode, but it certainly does not beat last week’s epic episode where we discovered that Nagisa-kun had some hidden assassination talent. Still, it’s always nice to see another character in the spotlight I suppose.
I’m guessing that Koro-sensei has befriended all of his students now. I can’t think of one student that he hasn’t won over yet. All that was left was the class bully, whom he won over during this episode, which makes the story even weirder. He wants to be assassinated by his students that he befriended. Yeah right. His real objective will become clear in time.
But hey, those students learned that he doesn’t really go well with water. His mucus protects him from water to a point, but after that he becomes slow and somewhat vulnerable. Information like that is worth gold to someone like Nagisa, whom relies on accurate information to achieve his goals. It’s only a matter of time.
What kind of bothers me is that Koro-sensei is still being very gentle with his so-called brother. That masked guy withdrew him from his class due to personal reasons, but now he shows up again and he expect Koro-sensei to go along with him and not harm him even though he’s not really his student right now. He’s just another freaky kid with killing intent and tentacles for hair. So, in theory at least, Koro-sensei shouldn’t have to worry about harming him, especially since he was really driven into a corner this time. I guess he just refuses to go back on his word (which might just be his biggest weakness).Read More
