We have been twiddling our thumbs and waiting a while to hear what was to follow after Netflix dipped their toe in the anime pond via Knights Of Sidonia.
Now news has come down from Polygon Pictures that Knights Of Sidonia: Battle for Planet 9, the series continuation goes live on Netflix worldwide in July.
Based on the titular manga by Tsutomu Nihei, Knights Of Sidonia follows the last remnants of humanity who drift in space living essentially on a meteor starship called Sidonia and are constantly under threat of the Gauna, space tentacled abominations that destroyed our solar systems in times past.
If the first season is anything to go by, the Gauna battles will definitely be more intense and just maybe we’ll get more insight into where these things come from. Because if Sidonia has to switch course drastically again, you can imagine the death toll of people just falling out of their homes. Definitely on of the the most scarring images of the series.
So whilst season 1 saw the young but skilled pilot Tanikaze Nagate and the Guardians on the defensive against the Gauna, Season 2 will definite see the Guardians more on the offensive.
Knights Of Sidonia: Battle for Planet 9 begins on Netflix come July 3rd 2015
