Suisei no Gargantia episode 10
Awesome! This episode turned out to be absolutely awesome! It was so simple, so obvious, yet I did not expect the amazing twist in this episode. The story makes you focus on different things, making it easier to surprise the viewer. I really like that!
I was really nervous; I thought Ledo was going to crumble under the pressure when he found out that the Hideauze may not be the enemy at all, but that they may have been the evolved form of humans. I doubt that somehow. How would humanity benefit from losing the ability to live on the surface? How would humanity benefit from only being able to live underwater? Although… We mustn’t forget that the world Ledo now lives in doesn’t have any land. Everyone lives on ships or anything else that floats. So maybe it’s the truth? Maybe those creatures are the evolved forms of human beings? After all, the Hideauze are home in their natural environment, yet humanity has to rely on ships to keep alive…
See what I mean when I said that the story makes you focus on other things? I have been thinking about the possibility of that theory being true. I didn’t even focus that much on Ledo’s discomfort after he found out. He’s probably done fighting those creatures for the time being, at least until he finds a valid reason to kill them.
Right now we’re all focussed on what happened during the last minute of this episode. We all want to know what’s up with that other mech, a mech that comes from the same place as Ledo and Chamber. Ledo seems to think that it’s his old commander that appeared before him on that shop, which made me even more curious. I can’t want to see what happens!
