  • An Old and New Twist
    If you like mecha show's, then this is a must watch. How does Gargantia of the Verdurous Planet have a new and old twist? The show has a slow beginning, but it's necessary to watch in order for the rest of the anime to come together. If you skip it, you will be sorry towards the end of the show, since the main character, Ledo, frequently has flashbacks about his former world. The show definitely ...

  • amazing! amazing! don't pass this up
    I cannot say enough good things about this anime. if you don't watch it you are really missing out on a a gun mech/humanity story. I've always been a fan of "crew" type anime like Last exile or eureka seven. you get to see the main character learn and interact with the crew/family of the Garganita and it's couldn't have been any better. I hope them make another season.

    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 ...

  • Short and sweet, as good as it gets
    This is one of the best shows that I have ever seen. Gargantia is a masterfully written piece which reaches a coherent conclusion in a timely fashion. While this show focuses on plot and character development, I must warn you that the intro to the first episode sets an off tone precedent. While there are action sequences throughout this anime, none so much as reach the height of the introductory ...

    Unexpected Brilliant Storyline
    Came in thinking this was one of those anime with just meaningless fighting and it certainly seemed to start that way in the first couple minutes. Except i was completely wrong! The anime turned out to be not only entertaining but very thought provoking. Season 2 here we go!

    PDR Reviews // Gargantia on the Verdurous Planet
    Gargantia on the Verdurous Planet is the seventh anime I've watched, and I watched it from start to finish. I was hungry for a new anime series to watch, and after some brief browsing on Crunchyroll, I found this anime. I saw it had great ratings, I saw the giant mech in the thumbnail, and I also saw the fairly cute girl - so I gave it a shot.

    Story //
    Oh boy, this anime has quite the ...

    One of the best Animes of the season!
    This anime was extremely well done. As soon as I started the first episode, I couldn't stop watching more. The characters were very well done and the plot was amazing. Sadly though, it only had 13 episodes. But luckily - it has been confirmed that a second season will soon be coming out! I'm hoping that it will show more of Amy and Ledo's romance and somehow; they will make Chamber come back! ...

    Good Series, Great Universe; Skip Episode 5 to Add 1 Star
    The greatest strength of "Gargantia on the Verdurous Planet" is the really interesting world it creates. Set in a distant future where humanity is fighting an alien menace in deep space, most of the action takes place on the earth humanity abandoned, where a lost soldier has to discover the roots of the conflict he was fighting in. The war in space and the sea-based society on earth are both ...

  • Really intriguing take on the typical Mecha anime!
    This isn't your typical mecha anime! There is a good mix of character development as well as action and the pacing of the story also feels well placed.
    However, it still had a few of the common mecha anime tropes, whether that is something that would bother you or not is up to you. But, all-in-all it was a really well rounded anime and I enjoyed it.
    Would recommend to anyone who likes mecha ...
