    Giant Squids + Giant Robots = Awesome
    Somehow this show manages to combine space combat, a post-apocalyptic future, giant squids, giant robots AND a heart-warming buddy story of self-discovery. It also has refreshingly creative designs for both the interstellar civilization and its enemies, and also for the waterworld. Beautiful backgrounds and high quality animation. So awesome.

    Very different than expected
    So I started watching this expecting a whole lot more of a mecha/action series than I actually got. Not that I'm complaining about that. Visually, this show is certainly nice to look at, and the action scenes that are in it do a good job.

    It's just that this is much more a science fiction series than a mecha one. It actually asks some questions about genetic alterations, AI, and the interaction ...

    Wasn't worth my time
    I have a confession to make: I failed to finish watching this anime. However, I think this is more Gargantia's failure than my own. Poor character development, an almost total lack of action in the middle of the season, and a half-baked romance left me cringing at times and reluctant to return to watch the next episode.

    Gargantia begins with a fast-paced but somewhat confusing first episode. ...

    2nd Best Anime In My Queue ^_^
    Gargantia on the Verdurous Planet was absolutely amazing. It had more feels than half of the shows I've seen (but not more than Anohana: The Flower We Saw That Day). I can proudly say that this anime has earned it's spot as second best under Attack on Titan. The characters, story, how you bond with the character over time is what makes it the best. I would gladly consider a second season and ...

    Super disappointing...
    This anime had beautiful animation and a great soundtrack, but unfortunately the story line and character development was sub-par. First of all, the story isn't that creative. It was kinda like Pocahontas. Boy comes from a distant land, and meets cute girl and tries to become accepted in their society/ get along with everyone. But the story didn't really go anywhere and I found myself bored very ...

    One amazing series!! Great story line, no fillers. The whole series is full of your daily doses of drama, action and a little comedy..

  • Good Anime...pretty deep
    So watching this was new for me. But this is one of those shows where things progress slowly at the beginning and then things pick up later. SOOO if you arent patient I wouldnt recommend this. But if you are still planning to watch it, its pretty good. I will make you think about things in life...

    Para aquellos que disfrutan de una buena trama
    Muy buen anime, escribe una historia de alguien muy apegado a las reglas que nunca tuvo que decidir por su cuenta ni tuvo que cuestionarse ninguna de sus acciones. Conforme avanza la historia, se revela la verdadera naturaleza de los que son considerados enemigos de la raza humana y lleva al protagonista a plantearse que es lo correcto o no. Recomendable.

  • Much better than I expected
    This is my first real foray into anime. I was just hoping for something mildly entertaining, but this series very much exceeded my expectation. Clever story, interesting characters, great animation,and very well produced.

  • crazy take on the future
    First off, I would like to say I have been in a bit of an anime funk. watching the first couple of this and that and not being drawn in... But Gargantia was just what I needed. Not too focused on a love story, Not crazy into military protocol. Overall amazing visuals and straight up enthralling. Have fun watching Gargantia, I did ;]
