    I'M ON EARTH NO WAY!
    Amazing, show im not a very big mecha fan but as i watched it the storyline made the show tolerable i like how he was almost the only one with his robot capabilities which makes me happy i love anime that the main character has something people cant normally have or have the ability to use. So over all the show as good because of how it has a good relation in the end with the robot and his partner ...

    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 ...

  • top quality animation art, great story, epic battle scenes
    Really happy I watched this one. I love the show background and setup, and love the future world of Gargantia. I think you will enjoy watching he main character grow throughout the series. The animation quality is top notch and the battle scenes are meaningful and exciting. I would recommend to everyone not just mech fans.

    Gargantia on the Verdurous Planet/ Suisei no Garugantia
    Gargantia was fixated on the idea of breaking from the social construct imposed upon people by society. This anime at first had a lot going for it but as the episodes dragged on, I found myself puzzled. It's initial play-out foreshadowed a major conflict that would involve Ledo and the Galactic Alliance but instead we received a mediocre climax that failed to deliver the final ...

    A single-season treasure
    There are not many 13-episode animes that are able to pull off a great story while having and ending that leaves the viewer satisfied, but this one pulls it off beautifully. It was a great story with excellent animation. It is probably the first short run that I would actually re-watch!

    Short, But Very Sweet
    Gargantia's ocean world premise will doubtlessly remind viewers of Water World, but such a comparison is coincidental at best.Gargantia mixes high sci-fi concepts with classic dystopian themes and strings it all together with an optimistic humanist message. Indeed, at the heart of Gargantia is an egalitarian outlook grounded in a more socially-minded sense of liberty. That ...

    The best anime since Code Geass
    Truly a wonderful anime! The characters are fun and interesting and grow as the story unfolds. The animation & art are absolutely brilliant. I couldn't wait for the next episode every time and the payoff was great. The creators could have done so much more with an anime so rich with content to draw from but thy put the 13 episodes to good use. A must watch for more serious anime fans.

    The best show of the season
    The animation is amazing and the characters are all lovable. It has a strong story and a large amount of smooth character growth. The storyline is not entirely unique (reminds me a lot of xamd) but is still very refreshing and compelling. Easily the best show of its season and will keep you wanting more even after its over.

    Fish out of water anime with mech
    This isn't a mech-centric anime. Mechs just happen to be in it.
    Essentially it's a fish out of water story where Ledo get's in touch with his humanity.
    Various facts about Ledo's old home, Galactic Empire, and earth are revealed throughout the series to add background as well motivation for Ledo.
