Netflix has announced that it will debut its first original anime series.

The on-demand service will premiere Knights of Sidonia in all territories on Friday, July 4.

The show - based on the popular manga series by Tsutomu Nihei - follows humanity's struggle to escape extinction against shapeshifting aliens who are determined to wipe them out.

The focus of the series is on low-born Nagate Tanikaze, who is now a refugee following the destruction of Earth.

After living in the bottom layers of the ship Sidonia during his youth, his talent as a pilot comes to light, leading him to become one of the ship's elite defenders.

Knights of Sidonia stars Hisako Kanemoto, Aki Toyosaki, Ryota Ohsaka, Takahiro Sakurai, Aya Suzaki and Eri Kitamura.

Earlier this week, Netflix unveiled the trailer for The Battered Bastards of Baseball, one of its first original feature-length films. »
