@takashichea: Well I plan on buying season 1 if season 2 is as good. Series does not have the horror aspect of Attack on Titan, but Its got that hard sci fi aspect. Plus um I use add blockers on some "cough" sites so one can look at it as robbin hooding in a way. This site tho is whitelisted in my add blocker program so adds on Anime vice go threw.

@Marshal Victory:

Oh they are having another season in the Fall? So Chaika 2, Knights of Sidonia, and the new Fate Stay Night anime series. Looks like a good fall season for me as well as a good summer season.

If they had mechs like Strike Suit Zero, their survival rate would have been better.

Is the manga good? Or is this another case of escaflowne?

@EVA_01:

I haven't read the manga. I have to ask @Marshal Victory: and

For the anime, it's a underrated, CG show. I would argue it's the best show of this spring season of 2014. If you like horror, science fiction, mecha, and survival of humanity themes, this show is for you. It can be a bit bloody, but not too gorey.

@takashichea: So It's Similar To Evangelion?

@EVA_01:

I haven't watched or read Evangelion or Escaflowne. I know for sure Evangelion isn't in the same boat as Knights of Sidonia.

Ask @Marshal Victory: who I think watched the series.

@EVA_01: Um seen movie 1 of Evangelion an all of escaflowne an its not like either. More closer to say Battle Star Galatica ( old tv series not new) meets Robotech meets Attack on Titan.

@Marshal Victory, @takashichea:

Guys, it seems I spoke too soon. Or should I say I started whining too soon, lol. With so much material left it's no wonder they're going for a second season. Hopefully, the bit I mentioned earlier will be included.

Finished the series yesterday. Nice to see characters growing. Was surprised that Kunato shed tears. Uh-oh Placenta Girl escaped.

Now I can read the manga...oh wait another season? Damn. I guess I'll read up to the point it finished.

I love the artwork mid-episode.

Here's the vid for 2nd season which I think everyone saw already.

I might read the manga up to where the anime left off to see the differences between media.

@SekiryuuteiDxD:

I will wait for the anime in October 2014. I'm not much of a manga reader. You can ask the folks here with the reply button. Don't be shy.

@SekiryuuteiDxD:

Since I usually work on anime and make discussion threads, it's becoming more of a habit for me to watch anime and not read manga. Plus, more anime are legally available than manga these days. Mods are supposed to do things legally.

@SekiryuuteiDxD: @Supreme Marvel: I was reading it while the show was on, but after that I left it off at volume 6. I would like to continue. How much have you read so far?
