  • An all around enjoyable anime
    Gotta be honest- not a big fan of mecha anime. However, this show is a really awesome take on a fish-out-of-water concept, where a character from outerspace possessing weapons and tech far advanced than those on earth, comes down to the planet and starts curbstomping on a lot of people. At least, that's a very shallow interpretation of this anime.

    The show itself provides a very interesting ...

  • Great Show, Wish It Was Longer!
    I binged watched this a few years ago on one of my nights off from work. Not that I recommend doing that anyway... It is a good show to watch and I recommend it to anyone who wants a quick jump from reality and a bit of different thinking out of the box!

  • Another awesome sci-fi series with a terrific story
    This anime series is another sci-fi favorite after I watched it. I was going to watch it on Netflix, but I had bought the series on DVD instead.

    It has been a long while since I had finished the series, so all I could remember is that during a battle in farthest reach of space, a young soldier named Ledo and his Machine Caliber (an artificial intelligent, automated, humanoid-shaped battle ...

  • I loved this anime!!
    It was definetly one of the more unique animes that i watched and i loved the characters and interactions.

  • I would love a second season...
    But mostly do help me decide if I really like this one or not... I don't think the central conflict ever really worked, but it was also weirdly rushed by the end of the season, and nothing really gets properly figured out. The setting is great, the connected independent and severable boats above a mystery underworld, is a great space to explore some key political philosophy questions about mutual ...

  • Simply, a great piece of art.
    Though embedded in a world of battling mechas and mysterious ships, Gargantia is the tale of a young man venturing out into a new world and discovering himself. I watched this a few years ago and found it simply impeccable. Definitely give this a watch.

  • An amazing mix of mecha and fish out of water story tropes.
    I can't lie. The first episode was hard to sit through, even as a long time fan of mecha anime. However, every episode after it is pure gold. The characters tend to be relatable and those that aren't have enough depth to make up for it. While not entirely ground breaking, the story has a few twists that mesh well with the pacing. The three leads (Ledo, Amy, and Chamber) mix and work well to create ...

  • Excellent short history
    Excellent short history. It is important understand difference between human and be human. This kind of history invite us to think on this issue. Cooperation and brotherhood as same race is the clue to survive in the future. I hope that author create a second part.

  • Didn't expect much, absolutely loved it
    I heard about this series a bit randomly and decided to take a look. First thing I noticed is the great art and character designs. The characters are lovable and the plot asks very interesting questions. The main protagonist comes from a different world and knows only war, but earth is very different to what he knows and he starts questioning what is his purpose. We see the character change a lot, ...

  • Really liked the anime
    It was kind of different. I actually liked it.


    The language thing was cool, and how the locals fly those air gliders so casually.

    I would definitely watch a second season of this anime for sure though!!
