Sidonia no Kishi 2 episode 03
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.
