Video: Knights of Sidonia still looks awesome


Gives us a reason to keep our Netflix subscriptions

Here's a look at the sixth and latest CM for Polygon Picture's upcoming adaptation of Tsutomu Nihei's Knights of Sidonia set to begin airing next month. It's one series I've been eagerly awaiting, but I admit I found myself cringing after learning the show would be premiering exclusively on Netflix this Summer. The show is slated to appear on the service subtitled with Japanese audio, followed later by an English dub. 

It's not that I don't trust Netflix to handle it properly, so much as another reason to keep that subscription going in the face of potential price hikes. Acquisitions like this have kept me from picking up the phone and cancelling outright. To top it off, they've yet to reveal a specific release date, so we're stuck waiting. I doubt they'll have the series available within a week of each episode's original air date. If you'd like to bide your time, you can at least catch up with the manga -- Vertical has released the first seven volumes so far with volume eight scheduled to arrive next month.
