    Amazing first epiode
    Ok so to start this anime seems awesome. I like the whole premise of it and the animation and art are awesome. It has been a while since I have gotten excited over something and this definitely has promise.

  • Imaginative, stunning, and full of heart
    Combine one part Ghibli film, one dash Mecha anime, a pinch of WaterWorld, and a whole lot of heart. What you get is Gargantia.
    This is a beautiful series, with plenty of gorgeous scenery and a rich cast of characters occupying a detailed world. It takes the classic Fish Out of Water narrative, placing a pilot from a space civilization at war with an alien race and dumps him into a sea-faring ...

  • Exciting Envision Of The Future & Great Characters
    Gargantia on the Verdurous Planet was one of my most loved series of all time, the interesting envision of future life on earth was a great change of scenery from regular sci-fi shows. The characters and plots are developed quickly, and you grow attached too even the unpleasant and cocky ones. Highly recommend, great start and finish.

    Gargantia on the Verdurous Planet: Urobuchi Indoctrinated Youth with Social Commentary!
    One of Gen Urobuchi's works, not much to be said. But the Title's flashy. Like seriously, I didn't know Verdurous was even a word. A new word at that.

    To put in a review, short and sweet, Gargantia is a sort of political and social commentary directed at Teens and those in their early 20's. Gen Urobuchi stated that the intent of the anime would be to convince the youth that "going out into ...

    Awesome Action and Fun to watch, but the characters...
    This is a good action anime, and the story idea is really cool! But I don't think the character development was really that great, I didn't really feel connected to the characters after the 5th episode or so. :/
    I watched it all in one day, so it's good to fill in if you're waiting for new episodes for your other animes. c:

    A surprisingly endearing take on Gundam Wing Concept
    Dropping a Sociopath Child Soldier with a Godlike Mobile Suit into a Peaceful Civilization

    It's called the Gundam Wing (GW) setup. You take a maladjusted child soldier, give him an uber-powerful mobile suit, and strand him in a peaceful civilization or region. I can guess what you're thinking:
    "Grab the popcorn. If you ever wondered what a fox in a henhouse looks like, you're about to ...

  • Short but worth watching
    This serie has a lot of things that normally would not blend well but the writers made it work so smoothly that is a pity it is just 13 episodes long. I am eager to see a second season.

    Normally when you watch a serie with robots and huge battles, there is not a lot of character development, but in this case the progonist evolves emotionally in each chapter while discovering that there is more ...

  • surprising/incredible
    Good story. I didn't expect that at all.

    Bad:
    - Ending to short. Missing something. Might be worth it to have couple more episode.

    Good:
    - Lovely characters
    - Nice art style, well animated.

    The story is a bit twisted and it gets better after the first episode.

  • Origin meets waterworld
    This anime is very reminiscent of the anime movie Origin: spirits of the past. It also invokes elements from Water World and Gundam Seed. I really liked the main character, Ledo, but the other characters didn't seem too deep or complex, despite the creator's efforts to flesh them out. If it were a little longer it might have helped this, but I think the length of this anime was perfect for ...
