Synopsis

It's been a thousand years since the Gauna, a strange alien race with no known method of communication, destroyed the solar system. A portion of humanity managed to escape using enormous "seed ships" like the Sidonia, which have allowed them to maintain the population while drifting through space. Nagate Tanikaze is a young man who has been raised deep in the bowels of the ship. When he goes into training to pilot the huge robotic weapons known as Gardes, Nagate is entrusted with piloting the legendary unit known as Tsugumori. Nagate and his fellow pilots put their lives on the line against the Gauna, in the ultimate battle for the survival of humanity!

A butt-clenchingly tense alien sci-fi with an interesting setting only held back by bland characters.

Do you know what makes great entertainment? When there’s something at stake. When there’s tension. When the main characters could actually lose and fuck up.

This is my biggest issue with the superhero genre. You know Superman or Wolverine are never going to lose. If they die they’ll just come back because nobody stays dead in comics. Your toast getting burnt is more inconvenient.

When you know your heroes will win or won’t die then any excitement is gone. What’s the point of watching? It can still be entertaining, but it would be read more

Sidonia no Kishi is truly a marvel. When I began the first episode and laid my eyes on the CGI, I felt a bit underwhelmed and my opinion began to waver on the show; However, SnK soon made me realize that I could have never been so wrong and I'm glad for that. Sidonia no Kishi is a post-apocalyptic sci-fi anime where everyday mankind lives in fear of being decimated, but continues to survive on an enormous ship known as Sidonia. There struggle is against an alien-species known as the Gauna which have brought humanity to its knees before and the only thing between read more

Recommendations

A group of humans in seclusion who live in fear of a powerful race of monsters that they have managed to evade for a long time, who are suddenly forced back into combat with these creatures.
Both feature life in space on a huge ship, both have an ace pilot protagonist with several supporting female characters fancying him. Both offer powerful sci-fi storyline touching various sci-fi phylosophical questions.
Note that Knights of Sydonia is dystopic, thriller seriers while Macross Frontier is utopic adventure.
