  • Pretty Good for a Mech
    Sure, this isnt the greatest anime ever, but it was quite enjoyable.

    The story was original enough to keep it interesting, while not overly relying on bad romance or constant action scenes. Characters all felt pretty good, i didn't really hate any one. Some of them are tropes, but what can you do.

    All in all, a solid 8.5/10

  • Short and Sweet for a great mini-binge!
    Watched it in a day and loved it!! Really nice tech fight scenes....definitely worth the time!! It has a descent story-line and keeps you engaged while you see the story unfold. I thought it might be a slow story line to develop, but from the start you see where it's taking you...maybe predictable to some...but overall it was worth the binge:)

  • Gargantia On The Verdurous Planet
    A interesting series about the price of adapting and the future of earth.

    There are things that I like about this series mostly the reveals.
    There are things that bother me like the fan service.

    All in all it is a good series, I wish it was a bit more dramatic in its view
    of the visitor Ledo and his ship.

    There are other episodes that are not available on CR right now hopefully they ...

  • Execution > Originality
    This anime is your typical Sci-Fi romp. If you are familiar with the genre then you won't be finding any concepts you haven't seen before. But I think that's okay because it does it so well that it doesn't need any original concepts to be an enjoyable ride.

    All of the characters were likable even the ones I thought I'd hate and I felt really invested in them. My favorite character has to be the ...

  • Absolutely Wonderful But Felt Unfinished
    I really liked this anime. I watched the first episode on a whim (As someone who's never watched anything with giant robots) and I just loved it. The character development is so wonderful and touching, and it truly does touch on some dark and uncomfortable concepts. My only issue is that it felt unfinished by the last episode. While some things were tied up in the end, there's still so many ...

  • 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 dont usually watch many mech animes and of the ones i have watched this one was among the top. The main characters had an interesting relationship and even the culture of this show was interesting and kept me wanting more

  • 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 ...
