    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

  • 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, ...

  • Exatamente como eu imagino um dia acontecer
    Esse anime resgatou meus pensamentos / sonhos a respeito de como seria encontrar alguém de outro planeta/galáxia aqui na Terra.

    Foi uma ótima experiência compartilhar o aprendizado de cada personagem durante todos episódios: as dúvidas, decisões, raiva e o amor.

    Foi engraçado e emocionante. Logicamente poderia ser maior, porém estou acostumado já (e creio que seja algo bom) com esses animes ...

  • GIVE US SEASON TWO YOU NUGGETS
    10/10

    I absolutely loved this anime. The characters were amazing, Amy wasn't annoying, the sci-fi was epic, I just loved EVERYTHING about this anime. I hate that they cancelled season two, however.

    Ledo, an absolutely incredible super-soldier, was played just right. The fact that he'd spent all of his life in war and training left him with no other valuable skills. Yay! He's not good at ...

  • A mech show that delivers a thought provoking plot, 5 Stars!!!
    From start to finish this show delivers in all departments. Personally I have great disdain for half season shows (prefer a real season to be min 20 eps), however this is one of the few that has made it as one of my favorites. The background story and progression really puts up front a though provoking notion of how humans interact and survive in a different kind of world. Also how the lack of ...

  • One of the Best Anime Out There, I can't Mean it More Sincerely
    While this is probably something you very commonly hear on the incredibly-positive Crunchyroll community reviews, let it be known that I am incredibly harsh on anime, almost to a level that many people on this site would probably consider extreme.

    Put shortly, Gargantia on the Verdurous Planet is in my opinion one of the best recent anime out there, with its de-emphasized mecha, surprisingly ...
