  • 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 ...

    Freaking sweet watch it
    Its the season of mech anime, although most of them are Gundam knock offs this series is different. The main character isn't a whiny little Shinji and the animation is very good. In case you didn't know the same guy that did fate zero and madoka magica is directing this series. Definitely worth a watch.

    One of the best SF Mecha shows I've seen in a while.
    I've been a fan of Anime since I saw Robotech back in the 80's when it hit the early Sat morning cartoons..

    This is one of the best mecha series I've seen in a long while. I love the art and the thought that seems to be put into everything.

    just my 2 cents worth.

    Great anime even if it does have mecha
    After 3 episodes, this appears to be the strongest series of the Spring 2013 season. It's a hard Sci-Fi series that includes plot elements that most animes completely overlook, different cultures have problems getting along on first contact and it's not just simple misunderstandings, but things like language and technology levels. Characterizations are done VERY well, the pacing is pretty good ...
