Product Description

Product Description

The Sidonia has engaged a new type of Guana. This armored-type is strangely aggressive, and most of the young pilots who have confronted the monster are not prepared for this change in stragedy.

Rookie pilot Nagate Tanikaze has even fewer completed flight-hours, but that does not prevent him from devising his own plan of attack when his squadron is in danger. Feeling the stirrings of a bond that is precarious at best given that humanity itself is in peril, he ignores orders to save a colleague left behind.

And then upon returning to the Sidonia, the history of the Guana is revealed to Tanikaze, not long before battle and a rival's jealousy leaves him alone in space again.

5.0 out of 5 stars Watch out, placental arms! 9 Mar 2014
By Jamil Bhatti - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
The best thing about this manga (besides the outstanding artwork) is the smartly measured pace at which plot details are handed out. Somehow avoiding info-dumping dialog pages, prologue text, or (perhaps worse) tons of action without any story at all, Nihei manages to masterfully tease out details with just enough frequency to keep me mesmerized. It’s all so mysterious and cool that I can’t get enough of it. I really hope that someday, someone can make an animated film in this style, it’s perfect for epic sci-fi.

I seldom buy or read comics these days, but anything by Tsutomu Nihei I pre-order far in advance. Fans of his know just how difficult (read: expensive) it is to acquire these after they’re out of print (e.g. BLAME!). This series is excellent and shows no signs of flagging, I hungrily devour each as they are released - I recommend you do the same!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great manga from a great mangaka! 26 July 2013

I've been a Tsutomu Nihei fan since Blame! and have been collecting whatever I can from him. Knights of Sidonia (Sidonia no Kishi) has its own flow despite a few similarities to Blame! and it's well worth buying if you're a fan of Nihei's cyber-punk style.

On a side note, I am praying omnibus editions of Blame! will be made in the near future because the price of some single volumes are INSANE!!

Now! So much win!

Thank you so much for this amazing work! I feel like the manga has a faster pace than the anime does, and I think I like it better this way. Not sure yet, but I'll keep reading to find out.
4.0 out of 5 stars Volume 2 just as good as Volume 1 27 April 2014

After finishing up volume 2 I must admit that I am now hooked on this series. Volume 2 is just as engaging and exciting as Volume 1 was. The only bad part is that it ends.

5.0 out of 5 stars Don't fight it, just let it happen. 17 July 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
All I have to say is, It is right here in Volume 2 where the story starts to bear fruit. Volume 1 has you deciding whether or not to read on, it leaves you conflicted whether or not this will eventually pay off and the good thing that it does in Volume 2.

Many things occur in Volume 2 but in a very natural pace. It feels as though every event that has occurred in the story so far, happens because it does (naturally, not forced).

Anyways, its thanks to Volume 2 that I have made the decision to keep on reading Knights of Sidonia. Time to go buy a copy of Volume 3.
