If you’ve been clamouring for sequels to these animes, you’re in luck!
One of the directors of Polygon Pictures revealed that sequels to Blame! and Knights of Sidonia are in the works.
Knights of Sidonia currently has two seasons under its belt and will be getting a third season. The synopsis is as follows:
After destroying Earth many years ago, the alien race Gauna has been pursuing the remnants of humanity—which, having narrowly escaped, fled across the galaxy in a number of giant seed ships. In the year 3394, Nagate Tanikaze surfaces from his lifelong seclusion deep beneath the seed ship Sidonia in search of food on the upper levels, only to find himself dragged into events unfolding without his knowledge.
When the Gauna begin their assault on Sidonia, it’s up to Tanikaze—with the help of his fellow soldiers and friends Shizuka Hoshijiro, Izana Shinatose, and Yuhata Midorikawa—to defend humanity’s last hope for survival, and defeat their alien foes.
In 2017, Polygon Pictures adapted portions of Blame! into an anime movie. A sequel to that movie is currently in the works. The synopsis to Blame! is as follows:
In the distant future, civilisation has fully integrated with cyber technology, resulting in automated cities. A virus causes these automated systems to malfunction, sending humanity to the brink of extinction as their own defences turn on them.
Unfortunately, there’s no release date as of yet. Stay tuned for more updates.
