New Trailer for Knights of Sidonia: A Star that Weaves Love
2021 is turning out to be a massive year for anime movies. Not only have we seen the success of Evangelion: 3.0+1.0, and the summer season is likely to be dominated by a new My Hero Academia film, but May 2021 will also see the release of Knights of Sidonia: A Star that Weaves Love in cinemas across Japan.
Based on the Knights of Sidonia manga by Tsutomu Nihei, A Star that Weaves Love will conclude the anime version of the science fiction saga that ran two seasons on TV and Netflix and is set to feature a new ending, supplied by Nihei himself, that will differ from the one on the printed page.
Here's the official English synopsis, along with the poster for Knights of Sidonia: A Star that Weaves Love
Love at a 15-meter height difference
After the Earth was destroyed by mysterious alien lifeforms known as the Gauna, surviving remnants of the human race escaped to space in the enormous generation ship Sidonia. Having drifted through space for millennia, the Sidonia found itself once more under attack from Gauna for the first time in a century. Once again facing the threat of extinction, a temporary victory against the Gauna was eked out thanks to the human-Gauna hybrid Tsumugi Shiraui and ace Guardian mech pilot Nagate Tanikaze.
10 years later...
The people of Sidonia enjoy a brief respite. Peaceful days pass, during which Tsumugi begins to realize her feelings for Nagate, who is now celebrated as a hero of Sidonia. However, as Captain Kobayashi has always known, as long as the Gauna remain, peace cannot last. The decision is made: a final battle, upon which rests the fate of humanity's last survivors. As the end approaches, will the crew be able to protect those they love?
