Very Unique Concepts, Keeps Interest Easily!
5 July 2014 | by mercfmaSee all my reviews

So i found this show because i had off on the 4th of July 2014, and i decided to dedicate the entire day to Netflix. As soon as i went on Netflix it showed me this newly released title "Knights of Sidonia" and i wasn't that interested by the description or the images because i saw mecha type anime(robots). That immediately discouraged me because i hate mecha type anime, but for some reason something inside me just couldn't resist watching one episode.

So i start episode 1 and my first reaction was the picture quality, it was so strange and 3-D-ish. At first i wasn't sure if i even liked it but i finished episode 1 and thought it was decent. I decided to give one more episode a try before i decided if i was gonna watch it or drop it and boy am i glad i did! After episode 2 i got use to the strange animation and the story really picked up from there. Every single episode left you in suspense for the next, its been along time since a show caught my eye like this show did! This show has a very unique concept on the human race and how they've changed in the future this is one thing that really caught my attention. And the action and mystery were very nice too. Both opening and ending are very good in my opinion.

This show has post-apocalyptic, romance, action, and mystery. I'm really excited for season two and i'm very happy that this was English dubed the same time as japans release.

Overall: 4/5. Why not 5/5? The animation basically. I think if they would have used what ever effects they did on the animation during specific parts in the show rather than the entire thing it would have looked better. Don't get me wrong though even with the strange or different animation style this show is really good. The story is a 5/5 for me, theirs just so much suspense and mystery and cool concepts i love it all. And don't forget i don't even like mecha genre anime and i loved this, that basically says it all!

Edit: Just finished season 2 and i have to say i think it was even slightly better than the first, for me it kept the same suspense at the end of every episode. It had its adorable moments along with epic action and some unraveling of the shows mystery's. The opening theme wasn't as memorable as the first season but if you listen past the first few seconds its actually pretty decent. I enjoyed the ending theme very much, it gave me the old eerie feeling of paint peeling. And i have to say my judgment of the animation has changed since my first viewing, just because the style is different from the mainstream isn't a bad thing and i think this is one of the few shows that can be done the way it was and come out well. 4/5 for season 2, its completely consistent with season 1 quality and for me i think i enjoyed it slightly more, cant wait for season 3! If you were a fan of season 1 you will absolutely love season 2, i promise!
