    great expectations!!
    Okay I started looking at the new anime that came out. Sadly I find that anime now a days don't really hold my interest as much as they used to and if lets say 20 new shows come out each year, I'll probably only attempt to watch about 5 and maybe end up completing 1 or 2. This is mainly due to the plot, lately there's been an over load of shoujo, cutesy anime and ecchi and I'm really not into that ...

  • I have super high hopes for this series!
    I can see this anime ending up on my wall along with my favorites. The amount creativity in this series really makes me want to hug the designers and writers! The perfect theme of two individuals who are foreign to each's cultures and pasts is really a "plot heavy" lure. The addition of the robot's AI really brings me back to Full Metal Panic's Arbalest! Partners from another world in a foreign ...

  • One of the few I await, weekly.
    I only follow a few series for weekly release. This is on my list.

    The story looks HIGHLY promising, and the acting and art style are really nice. The battles are exciting, and the animation is really clean in the high-def stream. Definitely worth attention. I look forward to each week.

  • dont let it end please!
    Such an amazing anime and i would say anyone who like the gundom series would like this too! This is such an amazing mecha anime, its kinda like the main character is in the modern day world but with everything on boats and more mecha related stuff!

  • It's Different; and That's what I like!
    Gargantia is not your average mecha anime that consumes you with a slew of explosions and it doesn't follow your traditional mecha anime approach.

    Story/ Plot:
    Gargantia is about a youth that is shot down from space and has crash landed on a flooded Earth. People who survive there live on these boats salvaged from the deep oceans and they get into fights with pirates. ...

  • Must watch Anime for 2013!!!
    So far, a great storyline and set of characters especially the main character and his "Yorobo" being lost and stranded on Earth (wont go into more detail as you really gotta watch this one play out). The animation is beautifully done and very detailed space fight, battle mech's, and battleships, for me it is very reminiscent of the original Macross movie in mech battles and detail, its just that ...

    Now THIS is interesting!
    Gen Urobuchi (Fate/Zero, Madoka Magica, Psycho-Pass) returns to deliver one of the most exciting new series of the year! The premise of the story is far more original compared to most mecha series that I've seen, combined with it's great art design and animation thanks to Production I.G with a stellar OST. This also marks the breakout role for rookie seiyuu Kaito Ishikawa as the main character ...

    An Anime That Just Makes You Excited to Watch More
    After watching the first three episodes, I am definitely hooked on this anime. Heck, even after the first episode I was hooked. You are introduced to Ensign Ledo who is military personnel fighting aliens trying to destroy the human race. Through an unexpected disaster, our poor Ensign is thrown onto Planet Earth where he must learn a new, undocumented language and learn how to interact with humans ...
