    Gargantia on the Verdurous Planet: Urobuchi Indoctrinated Youth with Social Commentary!
    One of Gen Urobuchi's works, not much to be said. But the Title's flashy. Like seriously, I didn't know Verdurous was even a word. A new word at that.

    To put in a review, short and sweet, Gargantia is a sort of political and social commentary directed at Teens and those in their early 20's. Gen Urobuchi stated that the intent of the anime would be to convince the youth that "going out into ...

    Amazing first epiode
    Ok so to start this anime seems awesome. I like the whole premise of it and the animation and art are awesome. It has been a while since I have gotten excited over something and this definitely has promise.

    It Stands Among the Best
    I officially can no longer place any faith in online classification and synopsis writing of anime. In particular, this one fell way outside of my usual genre interest. The synopsis, as usual, was poorly written and an immediate turn off. But, after watching a long string of good anime whose summaries had initially deterred me, I decided to watch this one based on the promising art work and good ...

    Excellent Anime from Start to Finish!
    At the beginning it was hard to understand the concept but after 10 minutes everything was interesting. A different way to view the concept of humanity. You get to love these characters from start to finish. 5 out of 5, Great Series!

    The story begins in the distant future in the far reaches of the galaxy. The Human Galactic Alliance has been constantly fighting for its survival against a ...

    Production value and excellent writing!
    I've been watching anime a long time, and this one has me REALLY intrigued. In terms of pilot episodes that can get you hooked on an anime, this one has it all. I thought it was going to be an average mecha-anime, but that's not even the focus at all!

    I would definitely pick this anime up to watch!

    A surprisingly endearing take on Gundam Wing Concept
    Dropping a Sociopath Child Soldier with a Godlike Mobile Suit into a Peaceful Civilization

    It's called the Gundam Wing (GW) setup. You take a maladjusted child soldier, give him an uber-powerful mobile suit, and strand him in a peaceful civilization or region. I can guess what you're thinking:
    "Grab the popcorn. If you ever wondered what a fox in a henhouse looks like, you're about to ...

    1st episode was great!
    At 1st I was kind of hesitant to watch because I don't really like shows with mechas but this one seems like its going to have a good story it also reminds me a little of vandred but the animation is great they put a lot of work into it. I can't wait ton see the rest of the series!

    Good show, good story, complete arc.
    Animation is nice and clean, typical of the modern styles. It isn't anything artsy or spectacular though.

    Music is blended well with the show, but I'm not buying the soundtrack.

    Characters are pretty well done for a 13 episode show. There was not time for a great deal of depth, but all the major characters had personalities and traits that stood out. They were definitely not flat.

    The ...

    The best show of the season
    The animation is amazing and the characters are all lovable. It has a strong story and a large amount of smooth character growth. The storyline is not entirely unique (reminds me a lot of xamd) but is still very refreshing and compelling. Easily the best show of its season and will keep you wanting more even after its over.

    Caught me by Surprise!
    Wow, That's all i have to say, WOW.
    At first, i thought this was going to be your typical Mecha Anime and blah; and boy was i wrong! The first 10-15 mins might not get your attention because it feels like any other space mecha anime but then boom, it suddenly grabs your attention. I'm not going to spoil anything but when the main protagonist "Ensign Ledo" gets sucked into a guess a worm ...
