Outer space, the far future. A lone seed ship, the Sidonia, plies the void, ten centuries since the obliteration of the solar system. The massive, nearly indestructible, yet barely sentient alien life forms that destroyed humanity’s home world continue to pose an existential threat. Nagate Tanikaze has only known life in the vessel’s bowels deep below the sparkling strata where humans have achieved photosynthesis and new genders. Not long after he emerges from the Underground, however, the youth is bequeathed a treasured legacy by the spaceship’s coolheaded female captain.
It starts of a little slow and you may feel like dropping it but by volume 6 it picks up steam and you actually want to keep reading it. The story is what it is, it is crude and raw and never shows you the effects of characters actions in the grand scheme of things, just leaves you with a weird feeling, but I guess that is on purpose. It also feels a little episodic at times. The art is very good, clean and sharp, but, at some parts, a little confusing during battles. The characters are also just there, you get to follow them without being show their backgrounds or motivations for the most part, but I guess this is also on purpose to show how everyone is disposable in that ship. This is definitely worth a reading.
