And we’re back… again. Sorry about the surprise skip day on Monday. Delayed con crud hit me hard and left me reeling. Hopefully now things will be back on track though! This week I’ll be taking a look at Knights of Sidonia, Vol. 13 from Vertical Comics, but first… an anemic looking news section!

And now, onto the featured review of Knights of Sidonia, Vol. 13!

Tsutomu Nihei’s bizarre sci-fi/mecha/harem series trucks ever onwards to it’s weird biological horror field future with Knights of Sidonia, Vol. 12!

It’s Wednesday, which means it must be time for another review! With the recent release of Knights of Sidonia on Netflix, I figured now would be a good time to revisit the series with a look at Knights of Sidonia, Vols. 5 + 6. Before we get to the review though, there’s a ton of manga news out of Anime Expo from this past weekend. Below are a few manga highlights from the con.



  • DMP also has some announcements to make, including the fact that Osamu Tezuka’s Captain Ken Kickstarter has reached its goal of $13k. In addition they’ll be releasing Tezukua’s Mr. Cactus through their Digital Manga Guild program.



That’s just a taste of the news that came out of the convention, if you want more I highly recommend swinging by Anime News Network and checking out their full coverage. Before you go running off to do that though, stay and take a look at this week’s featured review of Knights of Sidonia, Vols. 5 + 6!

As a meteor controlled by the alien Gauna threatens the Sidonia, Tanikaze and the other young pilots of the mecha’s known as Garde’s find themselves facing off against a veritable army of Gauna’s, and even if they can survive the initial wave of Gauna guarding the meteor, can any of them stand against the enigmatic and unique Gauna dubbed the Hawk Moth? All this and looming threat from within awaits in Knights of Sidonia, Vols. 5 + 6.
