    It's been a while...
    ...since I was truly excited to watch a new anime!!! I am super hopeful that they will be able to keep this anime new and fruitful. This show might be the only reason I keep my premium membership for the summer.

    Very Good Anime.....
    I got burned out on Mecha anime's a long time ago but this one showed up on Netflix just recently and I decided to check it out and it's dubbed (a very good one) if it was just subs I would have passed on it but I'm glad I didn't. It has the usual mecha battles which were well done but it turned out to be more than just that the story is well written the characters are not all the cookie cutter ...

    Mecha Encounter of the Better Kind
    Among the many means of evaluation for mecha anime, there are two categories that most shows tend to fall into: those that use the mecha as a central plot element, and those that use them merely as supporting elements. Gargantia on the Verdurous Planet belongs to the latter group, and it's a better show for it.

    Let's get one thing out of the way first: there's nothing wrong with battle-oriented ...

    Amazing start, the followup is average
    So, first things first: Gargantia's first four episodes are absolutely phenomenal. A vibrant, foreign world, a really cool exploration of culture clash, and a neat method of handling a language barrier. Mix in some potent emotional elements, and you have a very strong show.

    Unfortunately, it does lose some of its power as the show goes on, and the conclusion of the show winds up as a "shouting ...

    Very good, but i think it would have been better as a full 26 ep season
    So i decided to start this anime cause the cover peeked my interest for some reason. And after watching the first episode I felt the push to want to know more and it just built on itself (ending up binge-ing in 1 day -_- ). Anywhoooo, The story is very well made, the character development is pretty much textbook and the world i found very rich. But having all of those qualities made the story ...

    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.

    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:

    It surprised me. Which in itself is surprising.
    When I first saw all the pictures shouting this anime's release I was expecting what you usually see when a mecha is involved. What I saw was nothing like what I imagined and would entertain all kinds of people, not just mecha watchers. It was a great spin on a post-apocalyptic world and the struggles that it causes as well as some fun culture shock. The animation was very good as well as the ...

    Great series for 13 ep.
    I really liked this series for the amount of episodes it was. It was really nice to watch such a great story of The Gargantia, Ledo and Chamber, and a bit of the Gargantians themselves, unfold. I also really liked the animation in this one! had great picture quality almost all the way through.

    Why didnt i watch this earlier?! ITS GETTING A SEQUEL!
    I always have second thoughts of watching a meccha anime because it normally doesn't contain a deep meaning behind them. its just chunks of metal having a go at each other and whatnot.... but... in this anime they go into detail with describing ledo by describing situations in which he has to adapt to earth being away from home. That was probably my favorite part of the series and i seriously ...
