    Unexpected Brilliant Storyline
    Came in thinking this was one of those anime with just meaningless fighting and it certainly seemed to start that way in the first couple minutes. Except i was completely wrong! The anime turned out to be not only entertaining but very thought provoking. Season 2 here we go!

    PDR Reviews // Gargantia on the Verdurous Planet
    Gargantia on the Verdurous Planet is the seventh anime I've watched, and I watched it from start to finish. I was hungry for a new anime series to watch, and after some brief browsing on Crunchyroll, I found this anime. I saw it had great ratings, I saw the giant mech in the thumbnail, and I also saw the fairly cute girl - so I gave it a shot.

    Oh boy, this anime has quite the ...

    One of the best Animes of the season!
    This anime was extremely well done. As soon as I started the first episode, I couldn't stop watching more. The characters were very well done and the plot was amazing. Sadly though, it only had 13 episodes. But luckily - it has been confirmed that a second season will soon be coming out! I'm hoping that it will show more of Amy and Ledo's romance and somehow; they will make Chamber come back! ...

    Good Series, Great Universe; Skip Episode 5 to Add 1 Star
    The greatest strength of "Gargantia on the Verdurous Planet" is the really interesting world it creates. Set in a distant future where humanity is fighting an alien menace in deep space, most of the action takes place on the earth humanity abandoned, where a lost soldier has to discover the roots of the conflict he was fighting in. The war in space and the sea-based society on earth are both ...

  • Really intriguing take on the typical Mecha anime!
    This isn't your typical mecha anime! There is a good mix of character development as well as action and the pacing of the story also feels well placed.
    However, it still had a few of the common mecha anime tropes, whether that is something that would bother you or not is up to you. But, all-in-all it was a really well rounded anime and I enjoyed it.
    Would recommend to anyone who likes mecha ...

    Ledo. Whoa oh, oh, oh.
    Ledo missed the boat
    That day he left the shack
    But that was all he missed
    And he ain't comin' back

    At a Tombstone bar
    In a juke-joint car he made a stop
    Just long enough
    To grab a handle off the top

    Next stop Chi-town, Ledo put the money down, let her roll
    He said, "One more job oughta get it
    One last shot 'fore we quit it
    One for the road"

    Ledo, whoa oh, oh, oh
    He's for the ...

  • Absolutely Fantastic
    Despite initially enticed by the promise of a mech anime, I loved it even more because it was not your typical mecha anime. In this short series, you get to grow with Ensign Ledo, a soldier who fails to understand the world around him but continuously learns to accept and embrace this new way of life. It all culminates in an ending that leaves you satisfied and has its fair share of "WOW" moments.

  • Nice deviation from typical mecha
    I had a lot of expectations for this series given that it was written by Gen Urobochi, the writer for Madoka and Psycho Pass. The tone of the series is a lot lighter than his previous works. The basic premise of the story involves Ledo, a soldier who knew nothing but fighting trying to adapt into an environment that is absent of the dangers he faced in space.
    The anime at first follows the ...

  • Wow, great dialogue and show
    Simply a very beautiful show. Few episodes, great content (first few episodes may be slow), and dialogue between Ensign Ledo and his Mecha fighter is one of the best I've seen in any show. The show kind of reminded me of my childhood show Robotech, where everyone is stuck on a ship but they learn to live and enjoy life on it. All in all, great show, excellent animation and the coloring is bright ...
