    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 ...

    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.

    A Story You Rarely See
    This is definitely one of the top anime's this month to watch. At first I thought "oh it's another mecha battle story". But the setting is in the future, an elite who's never seen earth or had any opportunity to do anything besides battle in space gets stranded on Earth. My prediction is a culture clash and he's going to learn that there's more to life than his previously high technological ...

    It Stands Among the Best
    I officially can no longer place any faith in online classification and synopsis writing of anime. In particular, this one fell way outside of my usual genre interest. The synopsis, as usual, was poorly written and an immediate turn off. But, after watching a long string of good anime whose summaries had initially deterred me, I decided to watch this one based on the promising art work and good ...

    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 ...

    1st episode was great!
    At 1st I was kind of hesitant to watch because I don't really like shows with mechas but this one seems like its going to have a good story it also reminds me a little of vandred but the animation is great they put a lot of work into it. I can't wait ton see the rest of the series!

    Production value and excellent writing!
    I've been watching anime a long time, and this one has me REALLY intrigued. In terms of pilot episodes that can get you hooked on an anime, this one has it all. I thought it was going to be an average mecha-anime, but that's not even the focus at all!

    I would definitely pick this anime up to watch!

    Excellent Anime from Start to Finish!
    At the beginning it was hard to understand the concept but after 10 minutes everything was interesting. A different way to view the concept of humanity. You get to love these characters from start to finish. 5 out of 5, Great Series!

    The story begins in the distant future in the far reaches of the galaxy. The Human Galactic Alliance has been constantly fighting for its survival against a ...

    A Surprisingly Deep Story
    From the begining, Gargantia has had something that drew me to it. Strong characters, certainly. A somewhat different take on the Mecha genre, for sure. But something else stood out to keep me coming back episode after episode. While there are certainly a one off episode or two, there is a strong overarching story that I desired to find out more about. Episode 9 starts to pay dividends on that ...

    ONE OF THE BEST ANIME YOU'LL WATCH.
    This is the type of anime's i enjoy, SPACE :)). Ledo is found crashed landed on the Planet Earth. He is from out of space and has looked upon himself as a strong, one hearted soldier. He learns the ways of the new Earth and becomes great friends with a girl named Amy. It's a must watch and incredibly addictive. the story is very well told and techniques used to show this is obvious.
