I've noticed they have synching issues with the non-Japanese audio track. If you pause and rewind about 30 seconds, it fixes it ... but you have to do that at the start of every episode (it usually...

He's done nothing but brood in his mansion since Benisuzume made him shit his space-pants and have a breakdown a few episodes back ... an event that has clearly left him with a serious case of PTSD,...

Indeed. Given what little I know about the manga, it would appear that they kicked a whole bunch of stuff forward into the second season. Even without any manga knowledge, the casual viewer would...

That Death Star run with Lando Calrissian and the Millennium Falcon taking it out from the inside ... that was pretty epic. And when the planet-buster impacted, I must say that the resulting cloud of...

Eh? From what I've seen of the concept, the magnitude of vacuum energy available (very little) would, pretty much give you an ion drive ... high Isp, but absolutely miniscule thrust.

From a sci-fi "hardness" standpoint, it would almost have been better if Sidonia used antimatter. You could replace "Higgs" with "antimatter" in almost everything that "Higgs' is used for, and the...

Elf magic. Unobtanium. Since they can harvest it from vacuum (ref: Out of Gas episode 5,) the closest suggestion I can think of is that it's possibly some kind of mechanism for harvesting zero-point...

Not really. The people who produced Sidonia were nowhere near Type 2. At best, they were partway between Type 1 and Type 2 before the Gauna blew up the Earth. The Kardashev scale cares little about...

And for good behavior, they gave Hoshijiro of Borg a Sharpie. It was her most treasured (and, for that matter, only) possession.

No ... Sidonia has been in flight for about 1000. It's been 600 years since someone first worked out how to kill a Gauna.

Of course, it could be that Sidonia hasn't seen...
