    Gargantia on the blue planet
    I just finished this 13 episode series, I'm not sure if its completely finished, but there is definitely room to keep going. I feel like if this series was 24 episodes it would be perfect. Gargantia starts off in this epic space battle that can be a little off putting if your not into the whole technical jargon and explosions. Once Ledo reaches earth is when the anime really begins to unfold, so ...

  • Like the main character, you will fall in love with Gargantia
    This was such a good anime. I just wish it wasn't so short!

    This was such a good series. I really connected with it, just like Ensign Ledo did with Gargantia.

    At first he approached everything with skepticism, which is what I did as well. Going in I expected a 5/10 average at best anime to watch to kill some time. I kept pointing out flaws in my head.

    Going forward though, that ...

  • A Milestone for the Genre
    This is the most refreshing mecha anime I've seen in a long time. The story is well told, consistent, and has great pacing. Beginning to end. Further, it doesn't fall into repeating common tropes. Then there's the animation. In one word, beautiful. Attractive character designs, fluid movement, great direction, and a masterful use of color make every moment joy.

    What are you still doing reading ...

  • Best anime that came out this year.
    I didn't expect this show to be good but wow it really is good. This gives great character development to Ledo and a few other characters. The animation, soundtracks, and sound effects are really good.

    Gargantia, great story, action and heartwarming
    All I need to say, watch the first episode. If you aren't interested in seeing more, there's something wrong with you. So sad it ended =\

    Its a great story about humanity leaving for the stars but still at war with itself after the sun was dying. A battle between two races from earth causes a jumping wormhole to become unstable escaping a battle. Sending a boy in his AI suit back to the Earth, ...

    It's the little things that count.
    Gargantia was a show that did not truly start to impress me until around episode 7. Prior, conflict seemed negligible and predictability was starting to set in. But halfway through, the show makes a great shift in tone to starkly contrast its bright, colorful, and usually jovial setting and tone. This amplifies the gravity of the latter half of the show three-fold. While I initially dismissed the ...

  • Suisei no Gargantia !
    I'm not the biggest fan of science fiction nor mecha anime and hence I wasn't too keen on watching it in the first place. However, this was based on my first impression when I looked at the cover art. I decided to watch it solely based on the art which I assumed was going to be very good.

    It was indeed. I was pleased to discover that not only was the art pleasing, the plot had me hooked ...

    Great Plot and Storyline
    A relatively short anime consisting of 13eps that was seriously very well laid out and played. One of the top animes I have ever saw that truly displays the human psychology very well and was a pleasure to watch. While some other animes might have more action, this one definitely has more plot and depth into the actual storyline and was heartwarming at the same time. A must watch anime for all!

    Awesome! Nice twists and alot of emotion!
    Very well done anime, that was put together splendidly! The twists just add to the already awesome storyline, and the emotion between the characters really hits home. Excellent ending, no complaints here. There is a perfect balance of action and drama.
    And the art style is to awe at!

    All in all. A brilliant anime! That any should be able to watch.
    5/5
