Tsumugi and Nagate were drawn so beautifully. It didn't happen overnight, you could see their feelings and relationship growing. and later fill in the gaps with information (like in the case of Nagate and Izana's “date”.) 2. and we learn two important things - the semi-autonomous converter purpose is to. Izana's burgeoning relationship with the clueless Nagate might've been rather sweet this season if not for the stupid harem animé clichés that. Fan-Preferred Couple: Majority of the fans prefer that Nagate should ended up with Izana which is exemplified in the anime where they gave a huge focus on.
Knights of Sidonia / YMMV - TV Tropes
There is no argument for that. Tsumugi's personality it's like a child clearly, and Nagate and Izana always act as if they are their childminder, like a parents, it is too rare for me, and for many people, Nagate to end Tsumugi.
I know they are not just mine, and that many fans agree with me. And I know I will not be heard, I don't want to offend Nihei as an author. But I think it is important to comunicate our impressions. What do you think, may be crazy idea? Sincerely, an ending in the anime, like manga, will be a failure, for Polygon Pictures, and for Netflix, and I do not think they want to risk that. Nihei got tired of the manga and wanted to finish it quickly to focus on other projects?
I don't want to read anything else about him. A good manga is the one that leaves you good flavor, it does not matter that in the middle of the story sometimes it is loose in some moments, if the end is well, you always have a good impression.
If the end sucks I know I'm very focused on the sentimental part, but I've read a lot of manga, I've seen a lot of anime, and the feelings are fundamental in these genres, and a bad resolution of both, is to end up with a bad manga, or a bad anime.
In some ways, subverted. None of the characters in the series lived on Earth. The Gauna are massive, shapeshifting fetus-like creatures with the ability to assimilate humans with their Combat Tentacles. While their "Ena" bodies can be injured, Gauna are only able to be killed if their True Bodies are destroyed.
Gauna are further capable of replicating human technology, something they become increasingly proficient at after assimilating Hoshijiro.

- This Manga and Anime contain the following tropes:
- Nagate Tanikaze
The Sidonia's inhabitants are probably the last humans remaining in the universe. Face Full of Alien Wing-Wong: First, the Gauna gets its copies of humanity correct enough to know that its trying to immitate, but it always gets it wrong in an incredibly disturbing way.
Face Full of Alien Wing-Wong. The Type 19 prototype that Tanikaze was force to use was incomplete and not tested yet. As such it lacked thrusters in its jet form and had to stay in robot mode to fly.
Worse yet, the prototype didn't have a head cannon built in, something that is a standard feature on all the Gardes. So when the prototype had his arms pinned, the command post kept yelling at him to fire his Higgs cannon only to realize that he didn't have one in his head. The Crimson Hawk Moth does this in episode 12 of season 2 after infiltrating Nagate's cockpit.
It takes on Shizuka's form, rips his helmet off, then kisses him as tentacles from her mouth enter him, while as slowly choking him to death. All pilots of the Elite Four die in their first real battle against a Gauna. Kunato's four-man squad does not fare much better.

Kind of subverted; the anime features fairly realistic breast physics, in particular for scenes in null gravity. Played with the cadets and pilots' uniforms. The male ones use trousers, the females the same design but with skirts, and the third gender get to wear shorts. There were others, but contact with them was lost. While Sidonia never stops being about a grim war, as it goes on, its Slice of Life moments do at times become outright Harem Comedy. The Sidonia performs some high-G emergency maneuvers in episode 4 to avoid contact with a Gauna.
Captain Koboyashi is warned that casualties would be high based on a computer simulation, but she feels that those deaths are preferable to the Gauna getting onboard the Sidonia. Unfortunately for them, said evasion causes even more casualties than expected. And the Gauna turns around to make a second attempt at reaching the ship It's not easy for Nagate to navigate between the affections of a variable gender teammate with Artificial Limbsa command officer directly responsible for his Mission Controland an absolutely adorable and innocent human-Gauna crossbreed the size of his mech.
Nearly every other lady in the cast also has her moments. The Gauna have a rather ridiculous one, making fights with them a race against the clock to get to the weak point before they regenerate. Due to some events in the setting's backstory, a third gender was created. Like some species of fish and amphibians, they eventually metamorphose into one sex or the other in order to breed. Hoist by His Own Petard: The Crimson Hawk Moth takes its time to slowly infiltrate and incapacitate Nagate in episode 12 of season 2, rather than just destroying his garde like it would have done normally.
This buys Izana enough time to hack into his mecha, and cause it to force shut the neck seal the Hawk Moth was using to infiltrate his garde, and giving him time to destroy its ena.
Fairly low in the first season of the anime. In Season 2, however, the HSQ skyrockets, to the point where it gets hard to tell if it's actually still the same show.
The camerawork in a lot of the space battle scenes is pretty blatantly done in the style of Battlestar Galactica to good effect Honor Before Reason: Kunato never gets over Tanikaze getting the first chance to pilot the Type 17, nor for Tanikaze getting a Gauna kill before he does. This drives Kunato to screw with Tanikaze in a number of ways, most notably sabotaging Tanikaze in a fight with a Hive-Type Gauna, which results in a number of his squadmates being killed unnecessarily and indirectly enabling the creation of the Crimson Hawk Moth.
The asteroid Gauna's propulsion core needs to be disabled before it can be destroyed, to prevent evasive maneuvers. Ninety percent of it is destroyed Used several times in the fight against the Crimson Hawk Moth in season 2. Tsumugi and Nagate always seem to be one attack from destroying it, only for it to then pull an I Am Not Left-Handed attack on them.
The Gauna, when they are trying to imitate humans, but they take less humanoid forms in many encounters. The Garde are Sidonia's first line of defense against the Gauna.
All the seed ships are essentially mobile civilizations. The crew of Sidonia had to extensively rework to human genome just to keep from being snuffed out entirely. By our real-world human standards, they are already quite alien. Much is made of how Tanikaze smells bad and it's assumed that it's because he eats so often compared to the new brand of humanity that only eats once a week. However there is no mention about the Captain and other immortals stinking it up, and they are all even more standard old human than Tanikaze.
Also at the end of one chapter, Tsutomu Nihei has a note that he has all the pilots stink like mad and have to hit the showers after a mission. The pilots not only sweat like crazy, they also piss inside of their suits and each suit has a biological lining composed of engineered bacteria that process the sweat and urine but generate a foul odour as a side-effect. The immortals that don't wear flight suits have significantly less cause to sweat, but the biggest reason is that the immortals were retroactively altered to be capable of photosynthesis in the anime, Kobayashi was floating around naked under a sun lamp.
Nihei does have the cadets sending Tanikaze added supplies usually just stuffing them into his lockerso the poor kid probably just has the same issues as any other pilot, just more so. Also, he likely did not bathe nearly as often when he was living as an Underdweller. Well technically Tsumugi isn't human, but she's impaled with lots of projectiles from the Crimson Hawk Moth in episode 11 of season 2. Most chapters take a possessive form in their naming, usually as " Someone 's Something ": All episodes in the anime have titles that consist of only a single word, such as "Home", "Mission" or "Adrift".
The captain and other members of the crew deemed essential to Sidonia's mission are kept alive indefinitely with biotechnology but the rest of the population is allowed to age and die at a normal rate. They hide it and convince anyone who must be in the know that the reason this discovery isn't shared among the entire ship is because it requires limited resources, but the truth is that they simply don't want to, as being the only immortals puts them in an unique position of control over the ship's inhabitants.
Impaled with Extreme Prejudice: Tsumugi suffers a particularly brutal form of this in episode 11 of season 2, after the Crimson Hawk Moth stabs her through her throat. Nagate does this to the second Crimson Hawk Moth in episode 12 of season 2 after he manages to regain control of his garde.
Let's rant about Izana's fate (Manga ending spoilers obviously)
He also later does it to random Gauna attacking him. The Sidonia has only a limited degree of it, unable to fully compensate for the ship's acceleration at full thruster throughput.
When they have to make sudden evasive maneuvers, massive internal damage results and people die, even though they used an Emergency Broadcast to warn people.
Despite placing much emphasis on conserving resources and recycling, the Sidonia has the ability to outfit massive numbers of Garde and pilots. Later on, they start creating large numbers of smaller combat ships to ferry Garde into battle. Explained by the ship posessing limited supplies of raw materials but significant manufacturing capability.
Any asteroid with valuable materials, from water to metals, that they encounter, is quickly strip-mined and put to good use. The Mexican Spanish dub of the anime series keeps the original name in English, despite the name could be easily being translated into Spanish.
This become even weirder as the second season keeps the original name, but the subtitle isn't, and a very different one to boot. The Crusade for the Ninth Planet possibly to keep the medieval theme of the series.
Nagate attempts this in episode 12 of season 2. After barely surviving against the Crimson Hawk Moth and rescuing an injured Tsumugi, lots of Gauna show up. He pulls out his katana awaiting the impending doom Only for Samari and the others to arrive and help him.
The Gauna continually adapt and evolve after every battle, constantly growing more sophisticated and even managing to replicate Guardian technology and tactics.
Sidonia meanwhile is constantly developing new technologies and weapons in order to stay ahead of the Gauna. Much is made of the issue of communication with gauna, but the aforementioned adaptation shows the possible motive for the eldritch beings out of space falling upon and shattering the Earth in the first place.
The gauna combine material and act as hive entities, showing communion and learning through shared genetic memory. It should be noted that the growing sophistication and technological equivalence comes as Sidonians are absorbed by gauna, organic Heigus cannon and the Crimson Hawk Moth being fairly blatant examples.
Technically they're in space, but otherwise played straight. Nagate and Shizuka are both stranded after he goes to rescue her in her escape pod. It takes three weeks before they're finally rescued, and only because all of the cadets disobeyed orders and went on a rescue mission for them. The Sidonia has lost almost all of humanity's knowledge and technological data, when evil scientist Ochiai destroyed the Sidonia's archives.
However a partial backup was made and then contained in Ochiai's auxilliary brain. When the pacifists set out to colonize another world, Kobayashi needed to have Ochiai revived in order to re-learn terraforming technology. Many of the inhabitants of the Sidonia unfortunately end up like this after the ship is forced into some emergency high-G maneuvers to evade an attacking gauna. The unlucky ones who couldn't find a place to strap themselves into get splattered into paste along the walls of the ship.
Most of the Garde pilots have white flight suits. Considering their survival ratethey might as well wear red. Sasaki unintentionally does this to one of the shorter mechanics in celebration of Nagate's success in using a prototype railgun to save the civilian colony ship. Gauna is an ancient Japanese word for a hermit crab. Kabi means the germ of a rice grain. The eponymous ship is 28 km long. The supervising immortal ship committee is murdered by the Ochiai clone at Kobayashi's command after its members decided to impeach her.
Mohs Scale of Science Fiction Hardness: A solid 4, at least for the humans' daily hardware. Pretty much any time Nagate or Tsumugi are attacking a larger group of them, causing them to suffer from Conservation of Ninjutsu.
The Gauna Mass-Union ships. Nihei recycles some elements of his previous works in Sidonia, either as references or actual existing elements, such as Toha Heavy Industries, MSCF, and the Gravitational Beam Emitter, among other things. Taken to ridiculous levels in one scene in Season 2 of the anime, where Nagate, Tsumugi, Izana and Yuhata are literally watching the Blame! Ochiai created one named his 'auxiliary brain'containing most of Sidonia's accumulated knowledge, which could only be accessed by using his brain.
He then destroyed most of the original information to assure his safety since killing him would destroy any way to access it. Nice Job Breaking It, Hero! Along with Nagate, they even helped Tsumugi explore Sidonia in her probe form, despite breaking the law about it.
Tsumugi particularly enjoys her time with Izana's cat, cuddling up to it and finding it adorable, even going so far to sleep with it in her home. Though Izana gets jealous and upset when Nagate spends time working with Tsumugi to the point he doesn't notice her, she doesn't show any animosity towards Tsumugi and still cares for her deeply.
However, Izana is shown to be incredibly jealous of her relationship with Nagate, seeing him together with her causing her to walk away frustrated. In the Anime, she graduate later after Yuhata, and her first mission is the battle against the masive gauna pod G, gauna wraped the dwarf planet.
In the Manga, she use bionic limbs after the battle against massive garde-shaped gauna, before the battle of dwarf planet.
