The Champions get lost within an endless labyrinthine city of epic proportions full of killer robots in their review of ‘BLAME!’. Based on the legendary manga by Tsutomu Nihei, Netflix and Polygon Pictures have teamed up to bring fans a new cinematic take on the story. Polygon Pictures have shown their strengths in adapting Nihei’s dense style before in their ‘Knights of Sidonia’ TV anime but can they bring ‘BLAME!’ to the mainstream viewer and still make it work? Listen and find out!

Today’s episode of 2-Dimensional Champions focuses on the second season of Knights of Sidonia. Rather than covering just the first five episodes as we usually do, this episode covers all 12 episodes of the second season. So, beware, there are spoilers everywhere. If you would like to catch up before listening, all 24 episodes of Sidonia are available on Netflix and the manga is published in North America by Vertical and is available on Amazon and Barnes & Noble.
I hope everyone enjoys the episode and let us know how we are doing by commenting or liking us on Soundcloud or iTunes.
