Sidonia no Kishi
This is going to be freakishly complicated. I have no idea how to express myself when it comes to Sidonia no Kishi. It’s very hard to describe even though I actually enjoyed the first episode. I never thought that I would come to look this.
The artwork is the main issue here. It’s a sort of 2D mixed in with 2.5D characters. It’s a very strange mixture and you’ll definitely have to get used to this sort of thing, but I actually liked it. I found it rather amusing and ended up enjoying the first episode, even though it’s from the same people that messed up Aku no Hana beyond belief.
The story is pretty cool. It’s interesting, quite well thought out and shows quite a lot of promise. Pump in a little bit of drama and you really have something here.
Do I recommend it…? I don’t know. It’s really difficult. I know that a lot of people are going to dislike this one because of the artwork. Like I said; you have to get used to it. I ended up liking it even though this normally isn’t my type of show. Just give it a try…
Plot Summary: 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 while drifting 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.
