Suisei no Gargantia episode 12
Oh hell’s yes! I can see it! I can see the ending! I knew it was somewhat going to turn out this way, somewhat, but I never expected it to be this good. My hopes for this show are higher than ever. I’m actually hoping for a second and even a third season, because Suisei no Gargantia definitely deserves at least one more.
Ledo and the rest of his (former-ish) friends were really pushed into a corner as they saw how Ledo’s old commander ran things around there. Weak people that were unable to contribute to help create a better world were sacrificed, people capable of doing certain things were assigned to do a job without asking questions and others, people that weren’t weak but didn’t want to comply with such a ridiculous quest for world domination, were simply killed on the spot and thrown off the ship. That’s when you, the viewer, already knew that Ledo wasn’t going to stand for it. He may be a true lapdog, but even he has his limits.
Even Rackage, a hot and badass pirate chick, was planning a coup d’état. We already knew that, but we also knew that she needed Ledo to keep that other machine calibre, Striker, occupied, so that they could take care of Kugel’s loyal slaves. Isn’t it funny how all plans so far have depended on Ledo and Chamber’s decision to help or not?
Anyway, the twist, Ledo’s discovery that Kugel was already dead and that Striker was acting on its own, was absolutely amazing, which makes me believe that the ending is going to be absolutely epic. It’s going to be an insane battle between Ledo and Chamber, fighting for the safety of mankind, and Striker, trying to follow military guidelines to create a strong military force to go after earth’s Hideauze. I can’t wait to see how it ends!
