I think there was more fanservice in these 3 episodes than all of the show put together. Knights of Sidonia sure is delivering late.
En and Ren are the main service points yet again as the camera cuts to a segment of them photosynthesizing.
Ren and En seem to just make appearances this season for the fanservice. Meh, worse things could happen.
Breaking News. Izana grows tits.
More on this breaking story at eleven. (Or in a bath scene).
It appears Izana’s gender is now chosen, confirming her spot in Tanikaze’s harem.
Turns out Izana’s Grandmother has (had?) a thing for slightly revealing clothes back in the day. She then tries to relive said day along with Izana.
Despite the characters in the show having very…bland faces, they really know how to draw various parts of their anatomy. Like really, look at that shot at Izana’s back. Hard to find detail like that in modern anime.
Nothing really happened, service wise. Despite Izana and Tanikaze going on a “date”, there was only this I can offer.
A frustrated looking Izana, undressing.
Colour me surprised. I did not expect such amounts of service/teasing in these episodes. With all the action and plot we were getting in the first 6 episodes, I assumed that Knights of Sidonia would just play it safe and add snippets of service throughout the show while focusing on the story. To be honest, I’m not really sure if I’m glad I’m wrong. Knights of Sidonia is a great show and with the teasing in was doing in season 1, it made for a very entertaining watch with some eye-candy to spicing things up. That being said, season 1 had some nice pacing and a lot of slice of life segments that never really got the chance to show up in this season entirely because the story just can’t fit in those segments. Its a shame really since those were the parts I had the most fun with. What I’m getting at is that Sidonia season 2 is trying to replicate those SoL segments with what we saw in episode 8, some mindless comedy with the idea of Izana and Tanikaze becoming a thing being flirted in front of you. It doesn’t really have that comfortable feeling like the first season had.
Thanks to Anonecchi, we know that Knights of Sidonia S2 has confirmed nudity in it. What that means is that it is a safe bet to say that we will get some nipples or redraws in the screenshots above. Which is great of course. I did state my problems with some of the scenes but I cannot say that those scenes won’t be aided with nipples or full-frontal nudity. With volume 3 out the 24th of June, I can’t wait to see what they are going to change.
Also, best girl.
