Knights of Sidonia

vlcsnap-2014-04-12-10h43m54s92Manjiorin: 1000 years ago, humanity was attacked by an alien race known as Guana, and some were lucky enough to escape on ships now adrift in space. Tanizake Nagate has spent his entire life underground on one such ship, the Sidonia. Now Nagate finds himself above ground and drafted as mecha pilot in an effort to fight the Guana.

Spring Anime 2014 Impressions: Soul Eater Not!, Mekaku City Actors

While we do get to see Maka and Co. doing who-knows-what around Death City, the story remains completely focused on a set of new characters who start their first year at Death Meister and Weapon Academy: The under-confident Tsugumi, the air-head Meme, and the rich Tsundere Anya.
