Book Review: Knights of Sidonia Vol. 1

Review:  #681
Title:  Knights of Sidonia Vol. 1
Series:  Knights of Sidonia - 1st volume
Author:  Tsutomu Nihei
Read Before:  no
Comments:  The first volume of Knights of Sidonia has the tough mission of setting up the story and getting the readers hooked.  It doesn’t quite succeed since the pacing is off and the bombardment of new characters can be confusing at times.  However, the premise of the Garde and how Nagate must be special, is intriguing.  The action quickly comes when Nagate, piloting the Garde Tsugumori, encounters a Gauna in space with disastrous results.  While a bit confusing on what’s happening in the panels at times, it was intense and shocking.  This first volume doesn’t quite get there but is still an excellent read.
Rating:  6/10
