Sidonia no Kishi 2 episode 02
I just have to write about this show. I was very sceptical about the first season, so I chose to write about something else. I just wasn’t sure about the artwork back then, but hey, I came around. I see this jewel for what it is now.
So anyway; Sidonia has a lot of new problems now. Season one was about Nagate showing up one day and finding himself leading a new live in the presence of other people (and a cooking bear-woman). His biggest worry was fighting Gauna outside of Sidonia. And yeah, that was quite a load on his shoulders, especially since he was sent out almost every time.
But now? Things have changed. He will have to worry about his friends being taken over by some kind of parasite that goes for the mind and he has to worry about hybrid weapons that may or may not end up destroying Sidonia instead of enemy Gauna’s. Not to mention the fact that that captain, whom may have been taken over by a parasite as well, has just killed those so-called “elders”.
Things have taken an interesting turn. Nagate’s problems were once so simple, but now it’s going out of control. We have a captain that’s dead-set on taking over, a group of parasite-controlled ‘humans’ whose motives aren’t clear yet and we have one hybrid weapon that was supposedly created to fight off those aliens. All of it is getting out of control. Rather, I think it’s too much at once. They introduced that hybrid plus they killed off all those elders in one episode. What is next? Are they going to take over one character after another with those parasites? Sounds to me like the Gauna are winning after all…
