I don't know how much of Blame! they plan to adapt. They can safely much skip most of the story up to the point


But after that, if they end it early, they're only going to be leaving a bunch of unanswered questions. IMO it'd be better to do Netsphere Engineer as an original and run bits of Blame for backstory purposes.

TBH, I didn't really enjoy Biomega. Compared to Blame and Sidonia, it felt more like an expendable action flick.

Dystopian citizens gotta have entertainment too.

I couldn't get that "as a part of anime" but every story of Nihei is connected to each other maybe Tsumugi, Tanikaze, Izana and Yuhata will watch Blame! as a movie but anyways they should make the movie i want cause its epic!

Yes, it does, but what if they adapt Biomega, insert another BLAME! episode, and then go with BLAME!

Then it would have made more sense to go for Biomega first since its again more easily adaptable than BLAME! (which in my opinion is impossible to adapt without destroying it in the process).

I don't know how to actually respond to the BLAME! news.

On the one hand, in the Sidonia manga there were indeed times where the characters were watching films that were eerily similar to BLAME! and Biomega (but actually different) and this was just one of the many troll moments Nihei put in there (including this page http://bato.to/read/_/248713/sidonia-no-kishi_v9_ch42_by_habanero-scans), on the other, I'm wondering if the creators of the anime are using this to whet your appetites for a full BLAME! series. If its the first - you took the trolling a bit too far guys. If its the second - damn it I don't want BLAME! to receive the Sidonia treatment. That manga deserves much, much more! It will be catastrophic if we see a by the numbers dumbed down adaptation like Sidonia...I'll cry. I'll cry a lot.

Though I cant lie, that little PV got my blood boiling from excitement :D

Edit: I also find it funny how they misspelled Killy's name in the PV's subtitles.


I am thinking they are testing the waters for BLAME adaptation.

After all BLAME is far less "safe" to adapt than SIDONIA.

So after S2 of SIDONIA they can air BLAME anime while SIDONIA catches up.

Then test BIOMEGA same way and do BIOMEGA anime.

Blame will probably be a 1 episode special or something.

Sidonia is the hope for the Anime Industry!
