Netflix has been giving us some pretty good binge-watching periods lately, and now they’re looking to tap into the anime audience with their upcoming series Knights of Sidonia. Sploid showed us a sneak peek of Knights of Sidonia, which will be showing on July 4, perfect for the holiday weekend.
Before you watch the video, here’s what to expect from the Netflix original anime series.
The first Netflix original anime series, Knights of Sidonia, based on the popular manga series of the same name, follows Nagate, a low-born youth in a society of genetically engineered refugees who escaped the destruction of Earth one thousand years earlier and now occupy the massive ship Sidonia. When Nagate’s talent as a pilot is revealed he becomes one of Sidonia’s elite defenders against the Guana, shapeshifting aliens bent on eliminating humans from existence.
Robots in space. What can go wrong?
