After a forbidden room is unsealed, heroic pilot Saito is no longer the only legendary Sidonian with a deceptive avatar on board.
Meanwhile, an incoming asteroid forces the spaceship’s mobile units to skirmish in a positive-gravity environment. Calling the shots is Assistant Commander Yuhata Midorikawa, still new in her role, unsure but unshrinking.
"One ofKnights of Sidonia's chief strengths is that it doesn't bog down the intrigue of its world with too much unnecessary, bloated dialogue...It's definitely a solid pick-up for Vertical; there's not really anything else in their catalog like it. Dig into the first volume and see if Nihei's gorgeously depicted wreck of a sci-fi future doesn't secure an immediately tight grip."- Otaku USA
"Knights of Sidonia is off to a solid start with its first volume...All in all it’s a promising and entertaining offering and one that’s left me chomping at the bit for the next volume." - Comic Book Resources
“[Knights of Sidonia is]just great fun, written at a (slightly) slower pace than BIOMEGA, which allows for some character development and intriguing side-plot building. The art is pretty much identical to BIOMEGA and there are definitely some amusing little nods to that work, including amongst other things, a talking bear. I will, obviously, be reading this as soon as it comes out.” —Page 45 (U.K.)
