Suisei no Gargantia

This season is out of this world… I cannot believe how many masterpieces are being aired this season. Second Oreimo season, Attack on Titan, Oregairu, and now this too… Thank you, Japan! You just made Spring a whole lot better, especially since it’s still cold as hell over here.

Suisei no GargantiaThe artwork had me worried at first. You didn’t see much of the mechs, so I got a false impression at first. I only want to change the enemies at this point. They look strangely crappy compared to the others. The rest looks good, even the protagonist and his mech.

The rest why I like this so much is because of the story. It looked pretty dull and boring at first. Let’s face it; I don’t want to watch twelve episode’s worth of intergalactic fighting where one of the sides looks like crappy flowers that destroy everything in sight. That is why I was ecstatic when Red, the protagonist, got warped to another world where he encountered a lot of people living in a very different time. Sounds darn interesting!

I highly advise you all to give the first episode a try. I really, really enjoyed it. It’s different, which is something that doesn’t come by often anymore. Just give it a shot, even you usually don’t anime with mechs in it.

Plot Summary: 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 grotesque race of beings called “Hidiaazu.” During an intense battle, the young lieutenant Redo and his humanoid mobile weapon Chamber are swallowed up into a distortion of time and space. Waking from his artificially induced hibernation, Redo realizes that he has arrived on Earth, the planet on the lost frontier. On this planet that was completely flooded by the seas, people live in fleets of giant ships, salvaging relics from the seas’ depths in order to survive. Redo arrives on one of the fleets called Gargantia. With no knowledge of the planet’s history or culture, he is forced to live alongside Amy, a 15-year-old girl who serves as a messenger aboard the Gargantia fleet. To Redo, who has lived a life where he knows nothing but fighting, these days of peace continue to surprise him.
