More BLAME and Knights of Sidonia anime in development

Andy has been writing for UK Anime since 2006, and was the site's editor-in-chief until August 2017.  Contrary to popular belief, Andy is not actually a robot.


It's been a good time to be an anime viewer who is also a fan of author Tsutomu Nihei's works in recent years, with Polygon Pictures working with Netflix to bring us two seasons of Knights of Sidonia as well as a movie based upon BLAME!

Given the relative success of those titles, the good news is that there's more on the way, as the director of both the BLAME film and the second season of Knights of Sidonia, Hiroyuki Seshita, has confirmed that we should expect a third season of Knights of Sidonia as well as more BLAME in an unspecified form.

The news on both titles came from the Annecy Internation Film festival, where the director was showcasing Polygon Pictures' Godzilla anime.

We'll certainly be keeping a keen eye our for more news on both of these projects, while you can find the existing iterations of these franchises in anime form on Netflix. Season one of Knights of Sidonia is also available on home video from Animatsu Entertainment, with no sign of its second season being acquired at the time of writing.
