    LightHearted Mecha Any One?
    when I started watching this I had no idea what to expect other than it was some how a mecha, and I was pleasantly surprised. I would recommend watching this if you are looking for some lighthearted feel good mecha anime. The story is a little hard to pick up from the first 2 episodes but becomes very obvious around episode 5, A misplaced soldier find himself by living with in the ocean nomad ...

    Open seas meets outer space.
    When I heard that Gen Urobuchi was the writer behind Gargantia on the Verdurous Planet, I felt a good omen was coming my way. The mastermind behind Puella Magi Madoka Magica, my favorite magical girl series of all time, has come out with a new work, and this one is incredibly recent.

    So you can tell right now, that my expectations were incredibly high. Being a mecha anime doesn't help things ...

    Lento mas recompensador
    Mais uma bela produção do Production IG no campo técnico, Gargantia começa de modo arrasador mas logo se torna lento.

    Tal ritmo é um meio de desenvolver os personagens e preparar para os arrasadores episódios finais.

    Um anime com mais "tema" do que história, mas que ainda assim empolga e cativa com seus personagens.

    Além disso Chamber é o mecha mais legal dos últimos anos!

    Good show, good story, complete arc.
    Animation is nice and clean, typical of the modern styles. It isn't anything artsy or spectacular though.

    Music is blended well with the show, but I'm not buying the soundtrack.

    Characters are pretty well done for a 13 episode show. There was not time for a great deal of depth, but all the major characters had personalities and traits that stood out. They were definitely not flat.

    The ...

    Thoughtful Science Fiction combined with anime tropes
    Will be one of the best anime of the year! Not just another Reluctant Pilot, Giant Robot, and harem of scantily clad women. Although it has all of those too. Scratch the surface and it becomes both coming of age story and an exploration of utopian/dystopian government, the consequences of war, and trans-humanism.

    Very entertaining :)
    I think this is a very entertaining anime. Love the voices, the visuals, and the plot. The story keeps me coming back for each episode I just love the humor that is subtly put in here as well. Can't wait for more

    Gargantia on the blue planet
    I just finished this 13 episode series, I'm not sure if its completely finished, but there is definitely room to keep going. I feel like if this series was 24 episodes it would be perfect. Gargantia starts off in this epic space battle that can be a little off putting if your not into the whole technical jargon and explosions. Once Ledo reaches earth is when the anime really begins to unfold, so ...

    Great Plot and Storyline
    A relatively short anime consisting of 13eps that was seriously very well laid out and played. One of the top animes I have ever saw that truly displays the human psychology very well and was a pleasure to watch. While some other animes might have more action, this one definitely has more plot and depth into the actual storyline and was heartwarming at the same time. A must watch anime for all!

    Awesome! Nice twists and alot of emotion!
    Very well done anime, that was put together splendidly! The twists just add to the already awesome storyline, and the emotion between the characters really hits home. Excellent ending, no complaints here. There is a perfect balance of action and drama.
    And the art style is to awe at!

    All in all. A brilliant anime! That any should be able to watch.
    5/5

    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!
