  • please make another season!
    Unfortunately a second season would be nearly impossible considering how the first season ended. This show was amazing and i think they did pretty good with the animations. As far as the actual story goes i loved hidiaazu and the antagonizing mystery of who they are and where they come from that drags you along throught the season. The answeres to these questions are simply briliant and are filled ...

  • "Go to hell, tin can!"
    I love everything about this anime. It has action, drama, and a little bit of romance thrown into the mix. I can't get enough of it.
    I really hope that another season scones put with Chamber back. And new news on Amy and Ledo relationship! I hope that you guys enjoy it like I did.

  • 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 ...

  • 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 ...

  • Fantastic setting/atmosphere
    Extend this series by a couple episodes; throw in some light heart-ed character development with romance during the linguistic barrier, add some extra lore to further develop the already superb setting, and you've got a well built story with a dramatic ending that the critics would love.

    With that said it was a very enjoyable ride in a truly immersive setting and is certainly worth a watch.

  • Great potential, but bland characters and episode count held it back
    There were some interesting ideas in this series, but it failed to deliver overall. I would consider it above average, but not a classic.

    I enjoyed the early culture shock and language barrier stuff. They could’ve done way more with this. It may have been a better series if it had more episodes. The show does succeed in that I would like to see more of this world.

    The characters all felt ...
