    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 Hidden Gem That I'm Glad I Saw
    I've been watching not great anime lately (the season wasn't the best) and I found this series. In short, I loved it. I can't really say anymore because I'd miss a lot. There will be times where a character or two annoys you, and one of the final "romances" was a little awkward, but the end was really great. And I'll just say this, if I ever get a dog or build a robot, I'm going to call him ...

  • This series grabbed me
    I will tell you how this series made me feel. I felt anxiety and confusion for Ledo. Stranded on a foreign planet not knowing how or if he can leave. I felt caring and love from Amy who so desperately wants to help Ledo and they grow to love each other. Chamber is the most interesting mech I have seen. I felt a sense of place for each character, finding myself interested in every single one. That ...

  • Fun enough, but nothing special
    This is a spoiler-free review.

    Overall: 6.25/10 - Gargantia on the Verduous Planet is essentially fun science fiction fluff. While not thought-provoking or particularly engaging, it is nevertheless an enjoyable enough series to watch. The story is predictable, characters are good but not great, and the animation is nice. It's a good series to watch if you are looking for something light. It's ...

  • Great story and art! Must watch!
    Gargantia on the Verdurous Planet has become a favorite of mine for its great character development and solid plot line. The animation is beautiful, too---and not just the drawing but the colors, too, pull you in with vivid choices. I found myself rewinding and pausing to study the artists' choices. The whole series is worth more than one watch.

  • Amazing story with incredible character depth
    Great story with a different outlook on the human race. Pirates, robots and the vision of gods were all used in this anime and worked really well together. Characters show a lot of depth and mental intimacy. Animation was really visually pleasing and the colors compliment the mood of the story through out each episode. Definitely one of my favorites.

  • Kept me guessing, very enjoyable anime
    Summary:
    I was pretty hooked for many episodes, and then the story took a turn, and I was unsure what to make of things. It was nice to not know what to expect for a change :)
    That alone makes this worth watching: it's not just another space/mecha show, it has some pretty interesting 'depths', if you'll forgive the pun ;)

    Breakdown:
    Audio was solid, nothing noticeably wrong. Decent music, ...
