  • I could nitpick, but frankly I don't want to - this series simply has it all
    As other series have demonstrated, mixing genres, trying to be several things at once is not an easy thing to do well. This is especially true for one cour anime, where the producers only have 12 or 13 episodes to work with. The more sides, facets such a show has, the less time can be spent on each, which can easily lead to all of them being subpar. And yet, despite all the looming pitfalls, ...

  • I'm being generous by giving this 4 stars
    This review will contain spoilers.

    This was an overall good anime. What bothers me is that I felt this anime had so much more potential which was wasted on the last few episodes.

    To start off, I thought it was interesting the way the Galactic Alliance (humanity) was at war with a potential "alien" race, as we start off believing, called the Hideauze. The humans are defeated in the battle ...

  • Definitely worth watching
    Incredibly interesting set up and story line. The language barrier was a really cool twist. The entire series keeps you interested and wanting more. The only way it could have been better is if it were longer than thirteen episodes and two OVAs. I watched the entire series in one night...

  • please make another season!
    Unfortunately a second season would be nearly impossible considering how the first season ended. This show was amazing and i think they did pretty good with the animations. As far as the actual story goes i loved hidiaazu and the antagonizing mystery of who they are and where they come from that drags you along throught the season. The answeres to these questions are simply briliant and are filled ...

  • "Go to hell, tin can!"
    I love everything about this anime. It has action, drama, and a little bit of romance thrown into the mix. I can't get enough of it.
    I really hope that another season scones put with Chamber back. And new news on Amy and Ledo relationship! I hope that you guys enjoy it like I did.

  • Imaginative, stunning, and full of heart
    Combine one part Ghibli film, one dash Mecha anime, a pinch of WaterWorld, and a whole lot of heart. What you get is Gargantia.
    This is a beautiful series, with plenty of gorgeous scenery and a rich cast of characters occupying a detailed world. It takes the classic Fish Out of Water narrative, placing a pilot from a space civilization at war with an alien race and dumps him into a sea-faring ...

  • Exciting Envision Of The Future & Great Characters
    Gargantia on the Verdurous Planet was one of my most loved series of all time, the interesting envision of future life on earth was a great change of scenery from regular sci-fi shows. The characters and plots are developed quickly, and you grow attached too even the unpleasant and cocky ones. Highly recommend, great start and finish.

  • Short but worth watching
    This serie has a lot of things that normally would not blend well but the writers made it work so smoothly that is a pity it is just 13 episodes long. I am eager to see a second season.

    Normally when you watch a serie with robots and huge battles, there is not a lot of character development, but in this case the progonist evolves emotionally in each chapter while discovering that there is more ...
