King Records began streaming the second TV spot for the anime adaptation of Tsutomu Nihei's Knights of Sidonia manga on Monday. The spot features the anime's opening theme “Sidonia” by musical duo Angela.

The spot features the following dialogue:

    Text: A thousand years since the destruction of the solar system
    Izana: They say there's a new gender now besides female and male.
    Yuhata: Big brother! Why are you getting in the way!?
    Pilot: No!!
    Izana: Tanikaze, give me your hand!!

Netflix will stream the series "firstly and exclusively" in both the Japanese audio with English subtitles and in "dubbed local language dialogue" in all Netflix territories this summer.

The show's Japanese-language cast is as follows:

The anime marks the 30th anniversary of POLYGON PICTURES, a studio that has earned Daytime Emmy Awards (Transformers Prime, Star Wars: The Clone Wars) and an Annie Award (Tron: Uprising).

Kobun Shizuno (G.I. Joe: Sigma 6, Detective Conan movie) is directing the anime with co-director Hiroyuki Seshita (Street Fighter x Tekken, Final Fantasy). Sadayuki Murai (Steamboy, Millennium Actress) is writing the scripts and serving as series script supervisor, and Yuki Moriyama (Street Fighter x Tekken, Dino Dominion) is adapting the characters for animation.

The manga's story takes place after humans flee Earth due to the devastating invasion of alien creatures called Gauna. Humans travel through space in giant ships while the Gauna continue to pursue them. As a new human culture develops, people fight the Gauna with Morito (Guardian) robotic mecha. A young man named Nagate Tanikaze trains as a Morito pilot aboard the spaceship Sidonia and defends its people from Gauna attacks.

The anime will premiere in April.
