The anime is based on Tsutomu Nihei’s manga series. This season was directed by Hiroyuki Seshita, and Sadayuki Murai (Bubblegum Crisis: Tokyo 2040) handled the series composition and script. Both of these people worked on the first season as well. It was animated by Polygon Pictures. Sentai Filmworks provided a synopsis of this season: “The story continues to follow ace pilot, Nagate Tanikaze, as he spearheads the defense of Sidonia against a terrifying alien threat alongside an unlikely ally, a human-alien hybrid whose voice is strikingly similar to someone he loved and lost. However, Sidonia may be in more danger than anyone realized, as diabolical forces plot not only from without but also within.”
It has not yet been confirmed if this release will feature an English dub or if it there will be a collector’s edition available.
