What are some good Animes similar to Sidonia S01?
I especially value a sense of danger during battle and lots of characters dying or nobody being really safe.
Control rooms and tactical maps are a plus too.
I've just realized that Sidonia is 3-SHADED.
>Muv Luv Alternative seems to do it well
>from the first couple of episodes I watched
What the fuck are you doing goddamn
Do people really think they can just watch anime adaptions of SPin offs first? Jesus Christ what the actual fuck.
Muv Luv is supposed to start as a cliche high school harem comedy and then later turn into a violent war against aliens. The anime is a sidestory and thus jumps straight to the aliens part.
It's also a really bad adaptation, not doing the source material any favors.
You ask this one the same board where people regularly ask about using compilation films to get out of watching a series.
Are you REALLY that shocked that /m/ will take the shortest cuts possible?
Oh, right - don't forget to watch "Right of Left" OVA and "Heaven and Earth" movie, before starting Exodus. If you need fixed subs for the movie, you can easily find them by checking the archives for Fafner threads

Wait, like the former premise is supposed to be better or something?
>A bad premise makes something bad
...look, nincompoop, Muv-luv (the original trilogy) is revered because it's absolutely fantastic and is executed amazingly. Going from a forgettable dating sim to a starship troopers-esque military science fiction political-thriller-ish war drama that's utterly gripping in every way, and doing it well, is much more impressive than TE, which basically has none of the magic at all and spoils large parts of the original story.
Compare it to watching Fate/Zero before reading the FSN VN, except if Fate/Zero was garbage.
