Netflix first original anime series looks Robotech-level awesome

Netflix is launching its first original anime series on July 4: the futuristic Knights of Sidonia. The first season, already broadcasted in Japan, is 12 episodes of space opera epic drama that apparently is full of cool spaceships and mechas. Here's the synopsis:

The first Netflix original anime series, Knights of Sidonia, based on the popular manga series of the same name, follows Nagate, a low-born youth in a society of genetically engineered refugees who escaped the destruction of Earth one thousand years earlier and now occupy the massive ship Sidonia. When Nagate's talent as a pilot is revealed he becomes one of Sidonia's elite defenders against the Guana, shapeshifting aliens bent on eliminating humans from existence.

Can't wait to see it.
