This anime had beautiful animation and a great soundtrack, but unfortunately the story line and character development was sub-par. First of all, the story isn't that creative. It was kinda like Pocahontas. Boy comes from a distant land, and meets cute girl and tries to become accepted in their society/ get along with everyone.

This anime had beautiful animation and a great soundtrack, but unfortunately the story line and character development was sub-par. First of all, the story isn't that creative. It was kinda like Pocahontas. Boy comes from a distant land, and meets cute girl and tries to become accepted in their society/ get along with everyone. But the story didn't really go anywhere and I found myself bored very fast. And I can't remember which episode, but there was this really lame pirate queen lady that basically rode on a lobster jet ski. It was so dumb! I should have stopped watching it right there, but I kept watching it hoping it would get better. It didn't Aside from the stunning visuals and great soundtrack- that was the only thing going for this show. I don't recommend it.
I found this anime in search of a new one, i had no idea what to expect. The first few episodes got me hooked, and the last few made me love the series. I do think that some episodes (near the end mostly) could have been extended, because everything seemed to happen so quickly. But overall I think its worth a watch.
One amazing series!! Great story line, no fillers. The whole series is full of your daily doses of drama, action and a little comedy..
This anime brought back memories of series like Mazinger Z. A must watch!!
So watching this was new for me. But this is one of those shows where things progress slowly at the beginning and then things pick up later. SOOO if you arent patient I wouldnt recommend this. But if you are still planning to watch it, its pretty good. I will make you think about things in life...
Muy buen anime, escribe una historia de alguien muy apegado a las reglas que nunca tuvo que decidir por su cuenta ni tuvo que cuestionarse ninguna de sus acciones. Conforme avanza la historia, se revela la verdadera naturaleza de los que son considerados enemigos de la raza humana y lleva al protagonista a plantearse que es lo correcto o no. Recomendable.
This is my first real foray into anime. I was just hoping for something mildly entertaining, but this series very much exceeded my expectation. Clever story, interesting characters, great animation,and very well produced.
First off, I would like to say I have been in a bit of an anime funk. watching the first couple of this and that and not being drawn in... But Gargantia was just what I needed. Not too focused on a love story, Not crazy into military protocol. Overall amazing visuals and straight up enthralling. Have fun watching Gargantia, I did ;]

In the distant future, in a galaxy far far away. Humankind has advanced beyond imaging and has created a civilization adapted to space and everybody's' hair is silver. But mankind faces extinction for they are constantly fending off alien life forms called The Hideauze. And so we meet our main character a 16 year old soldier named Ledo, trained from birth by the Galactic Alliance to fight against the Hideauze with his trusty AI-automated, humanoid battle ship, Chamber. Now I know wat ur thinking. Why a three star, this show looks bloody amazing and its an anime in space, so why!?
Well I must agree with the amazing animation that Gargantia has, but you would think that this anime would be set in space, right? SRCEW THAT!! This is the story of how Ledo and Chamber are knocked into a wormhole during a tactical retreat and find themselves stuck on the planet Earth, where humans are not as advanced as our friend Ledo and have been living on massive ships to survive on this ocean covered planet where about 75% of the population hasn't reached the legal age and wear less clothes than my cats. Well sh.....!!
When I was watching this anime I was patiently waiting for some epic action space battles like in the first episode, but as the show dragged on I was becoming less and less hopeful. Gargantia has a good start for an anime but it never picked up until the very end and even that last episode was not as good as the first. There was a few battle scenes but with Ledo there I would rather call it a one sided massacre. If your expecting this anime to be over the top action packed than your looking in the wrong place dude.
Gargantia develops more on Ledo and how he works to understand the strange customs of Earth. This helps set in funny moments as Ledo and Chamber interacts with the crew members and causes tension between them. Because of this he starts questioning his own morals and even his purpose. Though unfortunately the same can't be said for the other characters and are mainly there to fill in the typical anime stereotypes. You got ur unreasonably joyful main female character, Amy, the stuck up engineer with an ego, Pinion, the big boobed strong and independent, Bellows, and so on.
Gargantia was fun to watch, but got really boring at certain points. The ending was the main build up and was executed perfectly, but it fails to develop many of the characters and leaves you with more questions than answers. If Gargantia were to get a second season then my rating might go higher but I'm betting the Production I.G burned so much of their money developing this anime that a sequel is unlikely. Overall Gargantia was O.K and is worth watching tell the end. Thanx for reading hope you found this useful, continue watching
Loved this series... it was unique, fresh and well drawn. Characters were decently developed, for 13 episodes. I've seen full arcs of bleach not offer as much! (and I freaking love bleach). Not sure they could get away with another season... but wouldn't mind them trying!
Seriously awesome series. Fantastic story. Character development was perfect. I loved everything about it. It could so easily have focused more on the flashy battle scenes but instead focused on the characters and a great story about humanity. I was thoroughly impressed. I want more

In the distant future, a planet covered almost entirely by oceans, known as Earth, grows in space. Ledo, a boy who has known nothing but fighting all his life, saw the sea there for the first time. On its vast, faintly green waters, men organize huge naval fleets and live modest but active lives. Due to language and cultural barriers, Ledo lives as a lonely foreigner... but he's not alone. Ledo is just beginning his days on this green planet, asking what he must do to survive here, and what he is living for. ...more
