I'd heard that this manga was really good so I decided to check out the first volume and if it was good buy the rest. But it seemed to me to be really rushed with no explanation about what's happening and the characters appear really wooden.
Is it worth checking out the next volume?

I've only read what's been fan translated so far and I'll say that the beginning is kind of obscure but somewhat resolves itself when you find out why Tanikaze is such a natural talent at piloting and killing Gauna. Though if you want to continue expect to see, fight with alien, life on the ship, fight with aliens, life on the ship sort of rotation (though i'll say in terms of characters Izana his genderless friend gets probably the most character development in a kind of weird love triangle situation heh) Anime airs next week too so that's also an option to check out.

I've read the manga before although it hasn't been updated in awhile. I think it has a lot of plot points and it's important to fit them together as the story goes on. I guess an analogy would be like connect the dots to place the story together. Anyways, looking forward to the anime here.

Chapter 78 is the last chapter most likely. I'm glad I stuck with this manga, it was pretty awesome.

I love Tsutomu Nihei, but I find that his work can be kind of obscure sometimes. It's the art that really brings me in. I love the cyberpunk themes, but just like Biomega, it takes a bit of time to figure out just what's going on, and even then the plot can suddenly take a tangent. I only own volume 01 of Knights of Sidonia, so I can't say much just yet.

CHPS 78 / 78 V2 Final / The End of the War Against the Gauna

Kinda sad it is done but what a finish. Might been a bit rushed but what happens is both amazing yet unexpected!

It was a good end (thankfully not depressing) though I do admit to being a bit disappointed about Izana ending up with someone else
. And Samari getting heavily implied to be going in the direction of someone else. I'll take a happy end with minor things I dislike over a depressive ending.
