    Para aquellos que disfrutan de una buena trama
    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.

  • Much better than I expected
    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.

  • crazy take on the future
    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 ;]

    Fascinating Anime but Developed Slowly
    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.

  • Wicked good unique series!
    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!

  • LOVED THIS SERIES!!!
    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

    Distinctly Average..
    The show started out really promising with Ledo being a trained mecha-wielding military man who has no other ambition in life than to fight space aliens who threaten humanity. He falls to an Earth that he thought was devoid of life only to find that humans live in tankers on the ocean. Cool. He can't get back to space and must learn how to live like these people do. Awesome. There was no character ...

    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 ...

  • 翠星のガルガンティア
    At first I thought this would be a sort of anime with no direct plot in the beginning as I was entertained by the space battle and how Ledo ends up on Earth with nothing to live for as he struggles to find a purpose. A plot does begin to reveal itself after watching him change (Dynamic character development) as Amy tries to show him his purpose or "a purpose" for living and in my opinion, it was ...
