Netflix is taking another cool step with their original programming initiatives with the debut of the anime series Knights of Sidonia. The series premiered in Japan in April 2014 and an English dub version is now available on the Netflix streaming service. It is the first Netflix original anime series. All 12 episodes are currently available for your viewing pleasure.
Knights of Sidonia is based on a popular manga of the same name. It tells the story of 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.”
