Sidonia no Kishi – Episode 1: First Battle [First Impression]


I'm just a normal guy, chillin' on the internet in search of a place that I can call my sacred hang. What more can I say?

    Ill admit that the CG was a little bit weird at first, but being someone who has played a decent amount of videogames and watched a lot of cutscenes, I got used to it fairly quickly. I haven’t read the manga, and I am hoping to read it after the season ends so that I can at least watch one anime without knowing what is going to happen. I love how this show just throws you right in without hesitation because it makes the story so much more intriguing and mysterious. Can’t wait to see what’s next! Thanks for the review!

      The CG looks horrendous when it comes to character models, but other than that everything looks super sleek. I think they introduced a little too many characters right off the bat, but the setting has me completely sold. Haven’t seen a traditional hard sci-fi like this in a loooong time. I’m worried it’ll be too short for the story to go anywhere though – it’s rumoured to be one cour, yes?

      Also, I didn’t really notice the similarities to Titan :p I guess it’s just how they presented the situation humanity was facing – Titan was a lot more bold, angry (?) while Sidonia had a much more subdued outlook towards the situation.

    That’s exactly it! It is so nice to get to see that old-school sci-fi that has practically disappeared from entertainment. I am not sure if it will be only one cour, I looked around and it seems to be up in the air so I am guessing that depending on how the ratings go, we may have a second season this winter… but don’t quote me on that.
