  • 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 ...

  • Very enjoyable, something a bit different.
    This anime has great animation and is something a little bit different.
    Very likeable characters and a good story.
    For me this anime was a pretty feel good series. It has some good action, very nice looking animation, cute girls, some pervy moments but light on the fan servie, some funny moments and it made me smile.
    Some kinda sad momenst also. Some nice twists in the story.
    Pitty this ...

  • Expected standard mecha, got something original
    This surprised me! Started off as standard mecha series but quickly turned everything on it's head with an original setting and for me, original story. The characters could have used more fleshing out but all in all they pulled me in to the story and it's beautifully drawn to boot.

    Very pleasantly surprised, a recommended watch!

  • Excellent series with some thought provoking themes
    Amazing pacing, intriguing backstory which was explained adequately eventually (but could still be expanded upon for future seasons), clear and thought provoking themes, likable characters, and very well written scores. Not the same as Fate/Zero or the likes, but definitely a higher-up in the extremely solid series club.

    Recommended. tin-can/10.

  • Great original story
    Excellent show. The story line is actually original, and I never could tell what was going to happen next. I really enjoyed this series, and highly recommend it to anyone who is a fan of the sci fi steampunk type animes. I was very disappointed when I realized I reached the end of the series.

  • A superb anime, with great action, beautiful characters and a thoughtful theme!
    The very first episode takes you quickly into the main subjects, which is the conflict between humans and aliens, whose identity you will discover later. The main character, Ledo, is cold but he grows from a soldier to a well liked boy with emotions. The key to his change is Amy, a very beautiful girl, who charms you in every episode.

    Ledo's partner and backup is the fantastic Chamber, an A.I. ...

  • Brilliant & Beautiful
    A beautifully animated, brilliant, true science-fiction story about what it means to be human - both for the individual and the species.

    The animation is achingly beautiful, yet never over powers the story. And that's the same with the characters. They are normal people who find themselves in an extraordinary situation.

  • 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 ...
