  • 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 ...

  • Really good Anime! A must watch!
    This may be one of the best animes I've ever watched! It has a perfect plot and wonderful animation. The only thing is, the anime picks up more during the second half, but that doesn't mean you should count out the first part! Overall, I would say this is a must-watch!

    Open seas meets outer space.
    When I heard that Gen Urobuchi was the writer behind Gargantia on the Verdurous Planet, I felt a good omen was coming my way. The mastermind behind Puella Magi Madoka Magica, my favorite magical girl series of all time, has come out with a new work, and this one is incredibly recent.

    So you can tell right now, that my expectations were incredibly high. Being a mecha anime doesn't help things ...

    Lento mas recompensador
    Mais uma bela produção do Production IG no campo técnico, Gargantia começa de modo arrasador mas logo se torna lento.

    Tal ritmo é um meio de desenvolver os personagens e preparar para os arrasadores episódios finais.

    Um anime com mais "tema" do que história, mas que ainda assim empolga e cativa com seus personagens.

    Além disso Chamber é o mecha mais legal dos últimos anos!

  • A Touching Exploration on what it means To Live.
    I went into watching this Anime with the expectation of Action and Adventure. I didn't get what I expected but that wasn't a bad thing. It has been awhile since an Anime has moved me to the point of Tearing Up.

  • You may not have seen this kind of thing before
    I went into this expecting a mecha show.
    The mech battle at the beginning is one of the best looking I've seen in quite some time. . . that's not really what the show is all about though.

    But hey, that's alright.

    There are many who say the middle of this show is boring. . . .and it is if you go into it expecting a mecha show.
    What it is is a Sci-Fi/Slice of Life show. . . .how often do ...

    Don't worry, it's not Gundam!
    My first impression coming into this was, "Oh boy, another Gundam ripoff..." Boy was I wrong! This show follows the life of Ledo as he is suddenly thrown into an entirely different world than the hardcore military world that he has lived all of his life.

    This show really explored a lot of deep themes such as young Ensign Ledo who is confronted with the choice between following his duties ...
