Episodes: 1 – 12 (2 Disc Set)

Plot: A thousand years after the alien Gauna destroyed the Earth, a small remnant of humanity still fights on to survive, fleeing on the gargantuan asteroid-based spaceship Sidonia. But centuries of flight and warfare have changed mankind in incredible ways: Genetic engineering has allowed humans to photosynthesize like plants, reproduction occurs through cloning, and a third gender has been created to balance the population. And, even though it’s been a century since the last encounter with the Gauna, military service is mandatory, with all those able enough enlisted to pilot the Garde robots that stand as Sidonia’s front line of defense.

For Nagate Tanikaze, whose grandfather secretly hid him in the forgotten bowels of the asteroid, it’s a strange new world as he’s forced to come to the surface and join the ranks of defenders. Yet his recruitment comes just in time, for the Gauna have suddenly reappeared, and what could be man’s last battle will require every resource humanity has left. And what no one knows, yet, is that Nagate is not exactly what he seems, and a secret buried in his past may change the fate of all mankind in KNIGHTS OF SIDONIA!

Animatsu Entertainment have released Knights of Sidonia – Season 1 onto DVD and Blu-ray within the UK; and the disc contents are exactly the same as this US release.

Animatsu & MangaUK Industry Panel Announcements at London MCM Comic Con May 2015

manga_animatsu_panel_mcm_may_2015_london

It’s been a year since Jerome Mazandarani, the previous head of acquisitions at Manga Entertainment UK and now CEO of his new company Animatsu Entertainment, took to the stage at the London MCM Comic Con to make announcements surrounding new anime licenses but he, along with his side-kick Andrew Hewson, were back in top form this weekend with wave-after-wave of glorious anime news – all of which you can see for yourself in our video of the panel.

Before we get to the important stuff there is some clarification involved; as this particular panel saw both Manga Entertainment UK and Animatsu Entertainment titles being announced by the same people – namely Jerome and Andrew. The reason for this, and its something that we have mentioned before, is that Animatsu Entertainment are not only a distributor (and/or licensor) but they will also act as promoter (and licensor) for Manga Entertainment UK. In other words this formula of seeing two different brand-names but one set of people announcing titles will most likely be here to stay from now on. Read more of this post

Knights of Sidonia Comes to Netflix UK in both Sub and Dub formats

knights_of_sidonia_screenshot

It has been brought to our attention (thanks @MarkBegg49) that Netflix UK are currently streaming the CGI- anime adaptation of Knights of Sidonia in both English Dubbed and Japanese with English subtitle formats.

The anime series is an adaptation of Tsutomu Nihei original manga, a story which sees humans attempting to survive amongst the monstrous shapeshifting aliens known only as Gauana. If you’re a fan of Sci-Fi and CGI-anime then it’s definately worth checking out.

Interestingly Knights of Sidonia is only available on Netflix, both within the UK and US, as Netflix worked alongside Polygon Pictures in order for the English Dub to be created – so we won’t be seeing this on Blu-ray or DVD anytime soon.

If you are currently a Netflix customer then you can watch the entire series online right now, otherwise you’ll have to sign-up in order to view it, fortunately Netflix also offer a trial period with their streaming service.
