A fourth commercial is offering the latest look at Knights of Sidonia, the anime adaptation of Tsutomu Nihei's sci-fi manga, set to run on Japanese TV in the spring, then stream internationally on Netflix in the summer.
The spring 2014 anime is produced by Polygon Pictures (Transformers: Prime, Tron: Rising, Star Wars: The Clone Wars) as its 30th anniversary title. Kobun Shizuno, who directed 2005-2007 American TV series G.I. Joe: Sigma 6 for Gonzo and three Detective Conan films in 2011-2013 (Quarter of Silence, The Eleventh Striker, Private Eye in the Distant Sea), serves as the director.
The series, the manga of which is released in North America by Vertical, explores the the struggles and evolution of the inhabitants of a massive seed ship a millennium after gigantic aliens known as Gauna destroyed Earth's solar system.
Volume one of the series is now being listed for a May 28th release. If Amazon Japan's information on the series is correct, it will run 6 volumes, suggesting that it should stop, at least for some time, after the spring season.
