    Great Hook! A must watch!
    If you are into any kind of sci-fi (even if you are not), this show is a must watch. The character designs and story are top notch. The premise had my brother, a friend, and myself hooked within the first half of the episode and was doubly reinforced in the second half.

    The first episode touches on a number of points ranging from self-preservation to self-sacrifice and I really enjoyed how they ...

    Well, this was really unexpected!
    After watching a few of the other newly 'released' animes on here...I've been sorely disappointed by most of them. They failed to catch my attention or stand out in anyway. This anime? Good lord! It's THE best First Quarter anime of 2013 to be released so far as it stands above the other April releases (As of the date this was originally posted) by a tremendous amount.

    It's beautifully ...

    This could be something special
    I don't normally watch much mecha anime but this first episode was incredible. Interesting, coherent plot (so far)... solid voice acting and script... and the animation is GORGEOUS. Bring on episode two!

    Amazing First Episode
    This truely has the making of the best new anime of the season! The plot seems simple, but still bold in ways other mech animes failed to do so. Even people who don't like mech animes could still watch this anime.

    Amazing. As simple as that
    Been Looking forward to this and a few others. From the looks of it, it already seems like an epic series. Interesting storyline, great art work, all aspects of a good anime are here. But of course with an epic series comes the unbearable anticipation

  • A good watch, in a "Knights of Sidonia" kind of way
    Really interesting take on the post-apocalyptic, mech vs. space parasite kind of anime. It had its fanservice-y moments, and the main chick is mostly useless (par for the course). However, the midseason reveal was definitely unexpected and last episode was great.

    If you've seen Knights of Sidonia, you will definitely notice the similarities between these two anime--from the space parasite to ...

  • The mad feels on this show
    This show is so awesome. I binged on it and felt so sad when it ended. The beginning is sort of weird but it gets so good! One thing I really appreciate about this show is how relatable some of the circumstances are and how they apply literally or metaphorically to life and blah blah you get me XD Just watch it

  • Absolutely Loved It!
    In my opinion, I feel like the negative reviews are far too harsh! I will admit the transition between the epic battle scene in episode one to the peaceful life the main character encounters on the Gargantia fleet was a bit of a shock at first, but I was not disappointed in the slightest. Yes, the action scenes are scarce, and we instead see a focus on the meaning of being human, but that's the ...

  • Reprogramming a soldier
    A soldier from a galactic war is separated as part of a gate jump, and ends up on a world with a much lower technology level. The anime covers his trip from a emotionless soldier, to a more humane person who can appreciate the good things in life including love.

    Some good combat, and good story, as you understand how he became who he was, and who he will become.

    On route to this he ...

  • Overall "good" needs character development and script re-work
    I did enjoy this series, however I think it had a lot of potential to be phenomenal rather than just good. The series is lacking in character development and has a lot of weird interactions between characters that are pointless and very unnecessary. I definitely think the script could use some re-working. But overall I don't regret watching and will probably check out the sequel when it comes ...
