I feel as if the anime was significantly better than the manga as it didn't have such a shitty ending. Am I the only one who thinks that?
>>
Nobody really seems to care about KoS ever since it finished. Ending felt rushed though
>>
>>145663147
The manga dragged on a little too long, but it had much better scenery porn than the anime. The anime had some damn nice mech fights, though. I think they compliment each other nicely.

Sci-Fi megastructures are my art fetish. Hopefully the Blame! adaptation delivers anywhere near as well as the s2 ep8 preview.
>>
I prefer the manga because I like Nihei's scenery. The pacing is fucked up though, drags on in the latter half with a lot of SoL and Nihei can't write romances for shit.

Still mad at what they did to Midorikawa.
>>
>>145664534
I still think that Izana was the best girl and should've won. Yeah scenery was good, but the romance ending just seemed a bit too fucked up
>>
>>145664685
She was also the best boy and the best mech.
>>
>>145663147
No.

Waifufags are still crying because their waifu lost, fuck off.
>>
>>145664841
But she was never a proper boy, just an intersex person. not to be confused with today's self proclaimed "intersex"
>>
>>145665160
Was the manga really all that great? It got really rushed up at the end.
>>
>>145663147
It's really hard to tell what's going on in the manga. The anime made it easier/more clear.
>>
>>145665351
I think it's fair to think of her, in her undifferentiated state, as being both a boy and a girl. I'm taking liberties calling her the best mech, too, but I can't think of any other character that can be argued to be all 3 of those things.

That's some next level shit.

Knights of Sidonia triggers me so fucking hard.

MC-kun taking the fall for white haired fuccboi's antics in episode 7(or was it 8?) was ridiculous. Yes, they were speaking on a private channel blah blah blah. You mean to tell me there was nothing similar to a black box monitoring and recording all incoming and outgoing communications and data on a mech? Did they fucking not think of it? Or was manufacturing storage media too hard for them despite being able to maintain and further develop fucking mechs that operate in the void of space? I mean shit, we've had black boxes in our aircraft that do that exact thing since the early-mid '60s for fuck's sake.

White haired fuccboi should have taken the fall and put to the sword or cremated or whatever the fuck they did for executions on that ship.

And don't get me started on season 2 being a romcom.

So everyone but Tanikaze can photosynthesize to get their important nutrients, right? And that means their society only needs rice for carbohydrates?

So how did Tanikaze live for so long on only white rice without dying of some serious deficiencies? And if Sidonia does have other food for him besides rice, why do they keep it around if they don't need it?

I enjoyed the first episode more than the chapters it was adapted from. It ends here.

Also Yuhata was a goddamn semen demon in anime form.

>>145668188
They do produce other foods. Photosynthesizing only helps reducing the amount of food production to ensure their survival.

>>145668069
>black box monitoring and recording all incoming and outgoing communications and data
It's a military mech, though. It makes perfect sense it'd have some kind of private off the record function for pilots who are dealing with sensitive information. You don't want some things falling into enemy hands; even the pilots are kept in the dark about military secrets.

>>145668188
The mechanics of photosynthesis are never spelled out, but they do need a weekly meal and they do have other foods besides rice. He also remarked during the trip to the restricted area with Izana and Yuhata that one of the creatures they saw happened to taste good, so he probably hunted for food underground.

Your argument does not make sense in the context of Sidonia. There are no enemy hands for the info to fall into. Sidonia is a solitary ship in space and has been that way for a very very long time.

Even IRL the vast majority of military aircraft have Cockpit Voice Recorders and Flight Data Recorders. Generally speaking it's mostly older models that dont have them. In the event of the black boxes falling in enemy hands, the data is protected by encryption. And no, it cannot be realistically cracked.

Well she does technically "come back"
>>
>>145669452
Problem is that it's hinted over and over that EnaJiro or BeniJiro could regain her memories and personality, but after the Benisuzume fight BeniJiro is essentially forgotten until her body is used to bail out the space penis. Really, the manga really felt like it lost all semblance of direction after the Benisuzume fight.
>>
>>145669103
>There are no enemy hands for the info to fall into.
The gauna can copy anything, even a human consciousness. E.G. Benisuzume and super Honoka. There is at least one instance of a hostile human almost destroying Sidonia, and secrets like the immortal council and the Gauna GBE are kept from almost everyone.

>encryption
The gauna are completely alien and have capabilities far beyond humanity's, so you can't assume human encryption is unbreakable.

There are plenty of good reasons to have off the record communication between pilots and plenty of other tactical mistakes to be triggered by.
>>
>>145669598
>The gauna are completely alien and have capabilities far beyond humanity's
Would the gauna even understand what to do if they even got a black box. They could imitate and replicate it but I doubt they could understand what it is used for

It'd be foolish to bank on that given they can imitate anything and be as cunning as a human being if they happen to duplicate one. The best Ochiai could do to encrypt his research still was defeatable with a copy of his body. Can you really not accept there'd be at least a few instances when you wouldn't want to leave records in a miltary mech?
>>
The first OP was great though, seemed to fill me with a sense of duty when I first heard it.

>>145669598

If the gauna are so omnipotent then they wouldn't even need the black box to figure everything out. They'd just assmilate the pilot, as they have in the anime and manga. The is no point to not having a black box in fear of it falling into enemy hands when the enemy doesn't even have need of it.

>you can't assume human encryption is unbreakable.

Yes, you can. Safely.
r/theydidthemath/comments/1x50xl/time_and_energy_required_to_bruteforce_a_aes256/

That's only for AES-256. You can imagine what it would take to crack AES-1024. Or even Even you assume that a human civilization advanced enough to support self sustaining ships in space and genetically alter themselves has not developed any encyption standards more complex/secure than AES, we're still talking about a ridiculous ammount of time and energy required. By any standards.

>Can you really not accept there'd be at least a few instances when you wouldn't want to leave records in a miltary mech?

There can be. Just not in the conext of Sidonia and definitely not in the context of that particular mission.

Why didn't she win the Tanikaze bowl? Everythimg really seemed to be going her way, but then for some reason Tanikaze goes for the big limp penis

The gauna are beyond human comprehension; their cores defy physics and they can replicate the complexity of a human brain in minutes if not seconds. Pilots can eject or commit suicide, while mechs, especially without Kabizashi, can be reasonably expected to be just fodder.

Never being able to secretly communicate with pilots in Sidonia's universe would be stupid.

>Never being able to secretly communicate with pilots in Sidonia's universe would be stupid.

Why. There is literally nothing to hide from anyone. If the Sidonia's upper echelons feel the need to hide certain things from the rest they should be able to easily restrict the flow of critical information in Sidonia, even amongst other military personel, while having records of everything for themselves.

Also,even if the gauna could analyze and comphrehend information stored in a storage media, with their super l33t physics breaking haxxors, such equipement can easily be rigged to self destruct in the event of being seized by the enemy or if in danger of being seized by the enemy.

It's just poor writing. Why go to such lengths to rationalize it?
>>
>>145671298
Tereru never had a chance and was really only there to pad out the harem.
>>
>>145671413
Why did she become part of the harem anyway? She just seemed like such an unnecessary character at the end.
>>
>>145671351
>There is literally nothing to hide from anyone.
There are military secrets that are hid from the gauna and lower ranked personnel. The Tsugumori did belong to a member of the immortal council before Tanikaze started using it, after all.

>such equipement can easily be rigged to self destruct in the event of being seized by the enemy or if in danger of being seized by the enemy.
Not necessarily.

>It's just poor writing. Why go to such lengths to rationalize it?
It's not, though. It's an entirely justifiable plot device an antagonist used to fuck over the protagonist. That happens in fiction. I honestly can't see how you can't rationalize it, or why that one little plot device in particular sets you off. You'll accept physics-defying aliens but a radio without a recorder is just too far out there for you?
>>
>>145663147
why was the manga ending so rushed? did he finish it so the anime could fit 3 seasons nicely or was he just retarded?

She did fly with her twintails that one time. Besides that I can't think of anything else that justifies her as a character.

What the fuck does "Not necessarily." mean? That's not an argument. That's just stupid. I'm done arguing with you.

2 batches of 11 for a total of 22. 23 if you count the super Honoka the Gauna made.

>Was the person they were cloned from part of the immortal ship committee to?
It's never specified.
>Why did they choose her to make large clone batches of?
Not specified either, but I imagine it has something to do with them being absurdly strong and able to receive accelerated growth and mental training. I wonder why Sidonia bothers with normal pilots when they can churn out 5 year-olds like that.

>>145676612
she prob wasn't just any chick, but they also genetically enhanced her just how everyone was enhanced to do photosynthesis
