    here we go another mecha anime
    anime is awesome, for me its very entertaining and has interesting twist in every episode. hopefully as this anime progresses we will get back to the heavy duty fighting scenes, however it is interesting to watch as he adapts to new experiences.

    I hate mecha animes, but I love this one here
    I overlooked this anime for about a month before I finally checked it out, due to lack of other good titles this season. When I saw the mecha I wanted to shut the screen off, but the little voice in my head told me I should keep watching. That was the best advice I'd heard all of 2013. The writing, the character design, and plot are brilliant and refreshing. It's also nice because the main ...

    Its Battlestar Galactica Meets Waterworld, Only Better!!!
    Its the best anime here or anywhere right now, almost flawless...
    The writing and art are brilliant. Now this I would like to see done as a big budget live action movie but only if done right.

    Great anime even if it does have mecha
    After 3 episodes, this appears to be the strongest series of the Spring 2013 season. It's a hard Sci-Fi series that includes plot elements that most animes completely overlook, different cultures have problems getting along on first contact and it's not just simple misunderstandings, but things like language and technology levels. Characterizations are done VERY well, the pacing is pretty good ...

    An Anime That Just Makes You Excited to Watch More
    After watching the first three episodes, I am definitely hooked on this anime. Heck, even after the first episode I was hooked. You are introduced to Ensign Ledo who is military personnel fighting aliens trying to destroy the human race. Through an unexpected disaster, our poor Ensign is thrown onto Planet Earth where he must learn a new, undocumented language and learn how to interact with humans ...

    anime made for the future
    this is an amazing anime so far and has lead me to want to watch more. this anime mixes the future with the past. this anime has what everyone wants from an anime. action, drama, science fiction, comedy, and maybe some romance. what is could you ask for in an anime. not to mention the artwork is fantastic. also the way they put up a language barrier to actually make you feel like your there. this ...

    “Gargantia: An enemy profile”
    *Heaving a deep sigh… How disappointing! I was hoping for a seriously dramatic finale, where humanity having to encounter the most evolved life-form on the face of the Earth (Teuthoidea; cephalopods) into a one-on-one battle for supremacy! I suppose, it can’t be helped—after realizing that humanity will not stand a chance; and settles for the most unlikely draw-card called, “Bio-synthesis” in ...

    An impressive first episode
    This is one of those rare anime that just a glance at promotional art for the show gave off the impression of something more than your standard anime.

    I jumped into the first episode a little skeptical but found that I liked what I saw: just enough back round info to get an idea of what to expect while leaving much to be discovered later.

    The Mech CG animation is decent, nothing to write ...
