    Not your average Mecha anime!
    When I first saw the preview image, I had an idea for the anime that was completely irrelevant.

    The story follows Ensign Ledo, who has been in the military forces for his entire life, fighting off various alien creatures of the universe. On one of the missions, through an unprecedented disaster, Ledo is left stranded on Earth with cultural and lingual differences between the people. He's ...

    The best frigging anime I've seen this season!
    This is one of the best anime coming out this season. To me, within the first episode it promised a great entertainment for the next few months. This may seem like a typical review from a shonen loving guy, but its actually from a very picky girl. The anime is very promising and it made me scream a massive 'WHAT!' when the episode ended. Not because of a shocker ending, but because it was over and ...

    Great Show. Favourite this season!
    At the beginning I was a little underwhelmed by the space combat. I felt like this was just a typical mecha based anime. Boy was I wrong. There's actually very little combat in this series It's a pretty deep show with themes of growing up and technology, and focuses more on character development and relationships than battles. I found the setting really interesting and the relationships ...

    A solid and enjoyable anime.
    This is one of the best shows I have watched recently. It has a good story set in an interesting location, and told at a near perfect pace. The main character grows in sensible ways in reaction to what he experiences, as do a number of secondary characters. The art style is fantastic, with beautiful character designs and backgrounds. My only gripe is the use of a 3D model for the mecha. I will ...

    Excelent Start to a New Show
    Extremely smooth and vivid animation with a interesting new world to explore. Its nice to see something new with a solid story to start things off. I look forward to seeing what the rest of the season has to offer us for entertainment.

    A mecha anime for those not into mecha anime
    I own this series on Blu Ray, but felt I should leave a review here.

    Story is amazing, even if you are not a fan of Mecha Anime I would highly recommend it due to it's characters, world, and overarching plot. Kind of wish Episodes 14, 15 and the Haruka OVAs were also on Crunchyroll, especially Episode 15 as it explains major plot points about the final story arc.

    A must watch for everyone
    One of my Favs. Gargantia really hit home of what a good anime should be. If you enjoy the more darker anime like I do this is for you. Great plot awesome story and towards the end the story turned out to be more than I hoped by just reading the blurb. Give it a watch

  • Excellent story and plot
    It's a must seen.
    One of the best I ve seen.
    Excellent plot, good story for the character.
    Not the kind of mech story.

    I do like the art of this anime and absolutely love the story line.

    at the end, brilliant anime and I really recommend people to watch it.

  • Pretty anime but too short
    This was a great anime but I think they tried to accomplish too much in just 13 episodes. It could have easily been 20 something long. Great animation and character design from IG and great overall story, but so many questions went un-answered. Maybe the 2nd season will expand but doubtful as it will probably only be 13 episodes again and have another story line that it will focus on instead of ...
