For those of you who don't know, it's a Sci-fi mecha anime about a war between Mars and Earth. It's written by Gen Urobuchi (Shinji, Fate/Zero, Psycho Pass) Directed by Ei Aioki (Fate/Zero) and the music is done by Sawano (Attack on Titan, Kill la Kill)

You forgot suits, anti-villains, and probably eldritch abominations (the mechs). Yeah first ep seems promising but I don't know who the mc is... I guess it's the school boy or maybe it's the Martian-controlled boy?

I'd assume both.

Also I'm not sure if Lolis should be crossed off, because there was a little girl following the Princess but she wasn't really sexualized in any way.

I've just finished watching it myself.  It has solid long term potential.  The rivalry between the Knights seems like the baseline for the show but I like that it's more complicated than that.  I also really like the clean animation style, mixed in with the landscape shots.

I like the utter calm of Inaho and I see potential for its use in the future.  I'm not sure I like Slaine, as he seems like the typical, stuttering young lad who later finds determination in some cause.  Probably in this case, the Princess.  Who is awesome, somehow.  Very likeable.  What I like most so far is that they've introduced several characters who all seem equally important.  I hope they keep it that way.

And the music.  Wow.  I fucking love the music.

Also, I just started Knights of Sidonia over on Netflix.  It's weird and I'm not sure I like it.  I think I very much dislike the lazy approach to both animation and storytelling, but we'll see.

I like the Martian Knights and I guess we're going to get our Cahr-clone at some point. My mecha hero is usually the cool anti-hero anyway.

I like Sidonia's art style, reminds me of Deep Sub 6 which was cool. I'm waiting for a batch torrent from Underwater before I watch it though. Apparently it's a slice of life mecha show like Gargantia which I really enjoyed last year.

I've heard Knights of Sidonia was basically Attack on Titan in space (and also pretty good), so I was meaning to check it out when it came on Netflix.

Also Insert_Blank, you probably know this but Gen Urobuchi also wrote the first and last episodes for Gargantia.

I watched a few more episodes of Sidonia.

Silverdream wrote:Knights of Sidonia was basically Attack on Titan in space


A good analogy, although I'd have to say the Titans are so, so much more frightening than the Gauna.  They're certainly more...visceral.  Sidonia does a great job of presenting a sense of hopelessness in the face of overwhelming force, however.  It just doesn't seem to be as focused as AoT.  I think the art direction is tied directly into that.  Sidonia itself is complex, jumbled, repetitive.  But the character design is minimalist.  The colors are muted almost all the time.  Even the space scenes have a density that is almost suffocating.  But the characterizations themselves run (at a guess, I'd say purposefully) counter to that.  A casual ease, some arrogance, complex relationships, a notably present focus on human physicality (injuries, hunger, sexual adaptation, genetic manipulations).  It's almost like they want to play up the danger of the Gauna by shocking the audience with their sudden, forceful, and overwhelming presence in the face of all the normal stuff we've just seen.  It works, of course, but it's formulaic.  So far, I've seen this anime before a dozen times but that's not a bad thing, necessarily.  It has obviously engaged me enough already.

I watched the first episode only, but I have to say I agree with you. I really like most of the designs and visuals , but the battle scenes seem very cluttered. I'm also not a fan of the animation style. Despite that I think that the setting is really interesting. Massive space ships with labyrinthine systems below and a militaristic oligarchy above. I also like the idea of bear people with robot claws and the bigendered (seriously, that sounds like the best gender ever).

Okay... that worries me. I really disliked AoT. I watched about 10eps and didn't care about any of the characters. It's shounen stuff and I've already seen it 100 times in anime I watched in the 90s. I hated the ep where the MC was trying to use the harness but he couldn't do it only for it to be unveiled that he was actually totally awesome and the best ever but the harness was broken. It would have been a much better show if he just sucked at it and needed to practice more than anyone else just to be competent.

I also just hate shounen anime, though.

Huh? Eren definitely isn't the best ever. He's actually pretty weak in most ways, including fighting. The only thing he has is determination, and a lot of the time that's not even enough. As for the harness, that was kind of filler and didn't add much to the story. I can understand not liking it for that reason. Pacing is one of the issues in Attack on Titan (although I'm one of the few people who enjoyed the pacing after I rewatched it).

I also find it a little silly you're denouncing it as "shounen stuff". Sure, I'll admit that Shounen isn't known for it's quality in story telling, but you're a grown man who watches cartoons intended for children (not that there's anything wrong with that).

What I meant when I called Knights of Sidonia "AoT in space" was the idea of humans running and trying to fight monsters much more powerful then them. Other than that there's not much in common.

Also I really enjoyed Attack on Titan, but it definitely has problems. What I liked most were:

-The artwork and animation (when it was animated that is)

-The direction

-The horror element

-The characters

-The setting

What I didn't like was:

-The direction (some scenes were really powerfully directed, but other scenes are directed like what's happening is so intense when it's not really intense at all)

-The pacing

-How some people treat it like the second coming
