Metal Gear's Hideo Kojima Praises Knights of Sidonia Anime

posted on by Bamboo Dong

Metal Gear Solid creator Hideo Kojima recently had some kind words to say about the Knights of Sidonia anime:

It's a kind of anime that we haven't seen for a while that has that sci-fi spirit. Using digital technology cultivated through games, it creates animation that encapsulates Japan's cultural assets like manga, cel animation, kanji, giant robots, etc. What's born is a unique made-in-Japan work that could never be cooked up in Hollywood. Japanese culture has lost its "cool," and Knights of Sidonia will be the white knight that saves it."

Other industry pros left acknowledgements as well, including Akiko Higashimura (Princess Jellyfish), Digitarou, and Yoshinao Dao.
