  • A Good Anime that's Almost Amazing
    The best part of Gargantia for me is the ridiculously vivid colors. Character's eyes, the ocean, everything pops off the screen. The premise is interesting enough and played to my love of a scavenging post-apocalyptic future. On the downside, it feels like somethings were never fully explored before being swept aside, and the action is a bit one-sided so don't expect many drawn-out fights to feed ...

  • A Hidden Gem That I'm Glad I Saw
    I've been watching not great anime lately (the season wasn't the best) and I found this series. In short, I loved it. I can't really say anymore because I'd miss a lot. There will be times where a character or two annoys you, and one of the final "romances" was a little awkward, but the end was really great. And I'll just say this, if I ever get a dog or build a robot, I'm going to call him ...

  • This series grabbed me
    I will tell you how this series made me feel. I felt anxiety and confusion for Ledo. Stranded on a foreign planet not knowing how or if he can leave. I felt caring and love from Amy who so desperately wants to help Ledo and they grow to love each other. Chamber is the most interesting mech I have seen. I felt a sense of place for each character, finding myself interested in every single one. That ...

  • Fun enough, but nothing special
    This is a spoiler-free review.

    Overall: 6.25/10 - Gargantia on the Verduous Planet is essentially fun science fiction fluff. While not thought-provoking or particularly engaging, it is nevertheless an enjoyable enough series to watch. The story is predictable, characters are good but not great, and the animation is nice. It's a good series to watch if you are looking for something light. It's ...

  • Great story and art! Must watch!
    Gargantia on the Verdurous Planet has become a favorite of mine for its great character development and solid plot line. The animation is beautiful, too---and not just the drawing but the colors, too, pull you in with vivid choices. I found myself rewinding and pausing to study the artists' choices. The whole series is worth more than one watch.

  • Amazing story with incredible character depth
    Great story with a different outlook on the human race. Pirates, robots and the vision of gods were all used in this anime and worked really well together. Characters show a lot of depth and mental intimacy. Animation was really visually pleasing and the colors compliment the mood of the story through out each episode. Definitely one of my favorites.

  • Kept me guessing, very enjoyable anime
    Summary:
    I was pretty hooked for many episodes, and then the story took a turn, and I was unsure what to make of things. It was nice to not know what to expect for a change :)
    That alone makes this worth watching: it's not just another space/mecha show, it has some pretty interesting 'depths', if you'll forgive the pun ;)

    Breakdown:
    Audio was solid, nothing noticeably wrong. Decent music, ...

  • Exatamente como eu imagino um dia acontecer
    Esse anime resgatou meus pensamentos / sonhos a respeito de como seria encontrar alguém de outro planeta/galáxia aqui na Terra.

    Foi uma ótima experiência compartilhar o aprendizado de cada personagem durante todos episódios: as dúvidas, decisões, raiva e o amor.

    Foi engraçado e emocionante. Logicamente poderia ser maior, porém estou acostumado já (e creio que seja algo bom) com esses animes ...

  • GIVE US SEASON TWO YOU NUGGETS
    10/10

    I absolutely loved this anime. The characters were amazing, Amy wasn't annoying, the sci-fi was epic, I just loved EVERYTHING about this anime. I hate that they cancelled season two, however.

    Ledo, an absolutely incredible super-soldier, was played just right. The fact that he'd spent all of his life in war and training left him with no other valuable skills. Yay! He's not good at ...

  • A mech show that delivers a thought provoking plot, 5 Stars!!!
    From start to finish this show delivers in all departments. Personally I have great disdain for half season shows (prefer a real season to be min 20 eps), however this is one of the few that has made it as one of my favorites. The background story and progression really puts up front a though provoking notion of how humans interact and survive in a different kind of world. Also how the lack of ...
