    FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

    SENTAI FILMWORKS LICENSES
    “KNIGHTS OF SIDONIA”

    HOUSTON, February 23, 2015Sentai Filmworks is proud to announce its latest license, Knights of Sidonia. Animated by POLYGON PICTURES and directed by Kobun Shizuno, this groundbreaking space opera depicts the last remnants of humanity as they struggle against an alien enemy in the cold vastness of space.

    A thousand years after the alien Gauna destroyed the Earth, a small remnant of humanity still fights on to survive, fleeing on the gargantuan asteroid-based spaceship Sidonia. But centuries of flight and warfare have changed mankind in incredible ways: Genetic engineering has allowed humans to photosynthesize like plants, reproduction occurs through cloning, and a third gender has been created to balance the population. And, even though it’s been a century since the last encounter with the Gauna, military service is mandatory, with all those able enough enlisted to pilot the Garde robots that stand as Sidonia’s front line of defense. For Nagate Tanikaze, whose grandfather secretly hid him in the forgotten bowels of the spaceship, it’s a strange new world as he’s forced to come to the surface and join the ranks of defenders. Yet his recruitment comes just in time, for the Gauna have suddenly reappeared, and what could be man’s last battle will require every resource humanity has left. And what no one knows, yet, is that Nagate is not exactly what he seems, and a secret buried in his past may change the fate of ll mankind in KNIGHTS OF SIDONIA!

    Knights of Sidonia will be available soon for home video on both Blu-ray and DVD

      Well, this certainly came out of nowhere. Now the question about Netflix will come up...

          I was wondering what exactly went on with all the licensing and stuff considering that it has been a Netflix exclusive and dubbed in LA that led me to believe that Viz would end up with the license. In any case, it's awesome that it's coming from them after it had looked like it was going to come from somebody else. Not to mention, a dub is already in place, though this means that Sentai will have to outsource for the second season.

            Cool. Now did they sub-license this from Netflix or directly from Japan. And will the dub be a part of this package or be a Netflix exclusive meaning the DVD/BD be either sub-only or have a new dub?

            Either way, more mecha for the shelf...

              Nice. I don't have a subscription to Netflix (I used to, but switched to CR), but I did want to check this out someday. I guess I'll just wait for the BD.

                I don't care about Knights of Sidonia, but seeing Sentai releasing a title that Netflix licensed and produced a dub for on Blu-ray and DVD is awesome news to me.

                  This is great news. I loved the show when it aired and can't wait for it on blu-ray and to check out the English dub. Great timing too seeing them most likely releasing it before the second season starts in November.

                    I really hope that Sentai redoes the subtitle track for the DVD/BD release, because Netflix's subtitles were dubtitles.

                        In that case, Sentai you have a deal with me. I'm looking forward to them releasing this show.

                          I remember some speculation that Knights of Sidonia being a "Netflix exclusive" meant any possible disc sales over here would be handled in the new (and more expensive) "connected to Japan" fashion. That things are at last going ahead in the older way gets my attention; in any case I did find the series an intriguing adaptation of the manga, and I'll be watching to see how the release turns out.

                            Noted from their Facebook page that it will include 3 audio tracks:
                            Yes, it will include a 5.1 English mix which is exclusive to this set, and also the Spanish and Japanese Language tracks, and additionally Japanese with English, Spanish and French subtitles.

                            Maybe you should bring it up on their twitter or Facebook page.
