BLOW MY MIND!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Havent seen an anime this good in a long long time. I remember i saw the first one on a trailer, and they looked 3d, and i said man, another bad mecha anime with tons of moe. That was my first thought , but, noticed they add it on netflix as a special netflix thing.I said woww, how fast  this anime go to netflix, that just aired almost a months. So ediced to give it a try.

And i was shocked. Havent seen anything this good since Macross or Evangelion. All the animation its in 3d, but i was not worried because of that, have the vibe like my favorite anime Kakurenbo. Then when i saw Sidonia from far way, the design blow my mind, how somethign so simple was cool looking. I mean this days ships are like tons of polygons, but this almost squared shaped ship blew my mind. Same as the art inside in it.

This anime its like if they combined Lain, Macross, Shingeki and Blame, if someone told me the designs were from Yoshitoshi Abe i will believe it. Music its epic, i just love the space combat, the angles are perfect. But whats its more important its the story.

THE BEST STORY I HAD SEEN IN YEARS in mechas. When i saw the scifi concepts i was blown away, the dialogues of characters are clever, this anime always end up leaving you in a cliffhanger, that you cant wait to see the next chapter.

How to i know this? Becaus ei saw the entire season(12 apisodes) in an afternoon. And its awesome that its going to have a second season. Im going to comicon this cmonth in -san diego, so im going to look for books of this series.

I normally hate the hell out of mixed media animation,and full CG is usually worse.  It usually makes the directors and storyboarders lazy as shit, selecting the same shots and types of shots over and over again.  But they did do a really really good job in this anime.  The camera was usually very dynamic and framing an actually interesting shot.  That and their choice of pallette and filters also really help quite a bit.

It was really nice to see a good old fashioned space mecha anime again!  Well.  A good one...

I saw some episodes but the story didn't really get me. The CG and battles were pretty cool do.

Just started watching it AND reading the manga at the same time. I loves me some Tsutomu Nihei, he gets better with every book, but I think this is one of those cases where the anime is an improvement.
