At the end of the final episode that aired today, it was announced that Sidonia no Kishi will get a second season. The title will be Sidonia no Kishi: Daikyuu Wakusei Sen-eki. There will first be a two-episode pre-streaming event on November 23, 2014. More information will be announced at a later time.
Hmm. I didn't really feel like watching the first season week after week. I honestly didn't like the CGI that much. I was planning on marathoning it at some point. Guess this is more motivation to do that.
