Looks like my choice isn't going to win any favor this time around, I'm honestly not surprised. Despite being one of the highest selling mangas of all time (30 million copies as of April 2017), that series isn't very well known in the west. I actually went ahead and read a bit of it (back when I had time to read manga anyways) and the story just gets better and better.

I've read kingdom it's really good, as for the anime, not so much

I agree its not the best visually, but the story does still come through quite well in my opinion and if we are being honest, it would be suicide to try and animate the huge scenes of massive battles with countless soldiers with any other style

It's the same reason I never want to see vagabond animated. No way could they do it justice

Knights of Sidonia has won! So we’ll be watching it at 1 episode as day, same as usual. Starting from December 10th, think that’s pretty reasonable. Never seen this but it looks super interesting, hope you all enjoy the show and we get some good dicussion out of it. And don’t worry, I already checked and I can in fact watch it and join in on this one! Yay! :D

I noticed that in the old watch alongs you also nominated a lot of the winners. Guess that’s going to continue, consistent good picks!

AWSOME! Please do, would love for there to be more then last time! Also I think it would be interesting for someone who has seen the show before to be able to bring in a rewatch perspective. Without spoiling anything or course, still a perspective the rest of us don’t have.
