Knights Of SidoniaDistributor Starchild has added two new Knights of Sidonia videos to its channel on YouTube, though they’re ones we’ve seen before, as they make more of the English language push for the series and making note of it on the series official page. Based on the manga by Tsutomu Nihei  which is being published in North America by Vertical, it’s slated for a Spring 2014 broadcast with POLYGON PICTURES handling the animation under director Kobun Shizuno.

Plot Concept: Outer space, the far future.

A lone seed ship, the Sidonia, plies the void, ten centuries since the obliteration of the solar system. The massive, nearly indestructible, yet barely sentient alien life forms that destroyed humanity’s home world continue to pose an existential threat.

Nagate Tanikaze has only known life in the vessel’s bowels deep below the sparkling strata where humans have achieved photosynthesis and new genders. Not long after he emerges from the Underground, however, the youth is bequeathed a treasured legacy by the spaceship’s coolheaded female captain.

Meticulously drawn, peppered with clipped humor, but also unusually attentive to plot and structure for the international cult favorite, Knights of Sidonia may be Tsutomu Nihei’s most accessible work to date even as it hits notes of tragic grandeur as a hopeless struggle for survival unfolds.
