After the Earth was destroyed by mysterious extraterrestrial life forms known as Gauna, the surviving remains of the human race escaped space in the huge Sidonia generation ship. Having wandered by space for millennia, Sidonia was once again under the attack of Gauna for the first time in a century. Once again, facing the threat of extinction, a temporary victory against the Gauna was achieved thanks to the Human Hybrid-Gauna Tsumugi Shiraui and the Pilot of Mecha Guardian, Nagate Tanikaze.Diez years later. The people of Sidonia enjoy a brief respite. They spend quiet days, during which Tsumugi begins to realize him by Nagate, who is now celebrated as a hero of Sidonia. However, as Captain Kobayashi has always known, while the Gauna stay, peace can not last. The decision is made: a final battle, on which the destination of the last survivors of humanity rests. As the end approaches, can the crew protect your loved ones?
