Woohoo! I can't wait to buy this. I love Nihei's crazy sci-fi. Blame and Biomega are among my favorites.

Any relation with the song "Knights Of Cydonia" by Muse? Or is that just coincidence?

Oh, I love that song. Anyway, in the song (and in the manga, I assume) Cydonia refers to a region on Mars, famous for the rock shaped 'Face'. I find it interesting that Vertical did not use the 'Cy' spelling, but then again, the correct Greek is Kydonia, so whatever.

....well as much as I love to see new license announcements, particularly from Vertical, this is one series I know I'll be passing on. I didn't like Blame at all and only found Biomega to be average. I'm not a fan of Nihei's style to be honest.

Still, I know there are many a fan out there and I always hope that all their titles sell well, even the few I have no intention of buying. Well I'll rent it from the library first maybe.

I really enjoyed Biomega and the premise for Knights sounds quite interesting. I'll have to keep a watch for it when it comes out next year.
