What is the Premise?
In this sci-fi anime we see the future of mankind after they abandon earth as they fight the strange creatures called Hideauze. It is doing a large fight that Ledo, a boy who has known nothing but fighting all his life, ended up away from his group. Waking up on we find to be the lost plant earth. No longer any land the earth has change from what we know and people live differently then the militant view of all that Ledo ever known.
What type of show is it?
I was told that the show started off great and ended poorly but I highly disagree with it. Starting off the show show more of a slice of life of Ledo trying to understand the lifestyle of those on the fleet known as Gargantia. Some simple concepts that we see every day is very foreign to him, such as using money. The closet thing he ever known to such is meal tickets, and that was for a standard issue meal, not for choice of foods. The second half of the show start to show more action as more key points are brought to light as well as a history that he never knew.
Is it a Hidden Gem?
I thought it was very well written! It also wrap up the story well and made the Anime end feeling like a true ending. Something we don’t get often in anime. As this show wasn’t biased off of a manga or anything I looked into it and it seems they had a pretty famous script writer as part of the cast. Gen Urobuchi who was also the script writer for Mahou Shoujo Madoka Magica and Psycho Pass. While people who aren’t big action fans may had enjoy watching Ledo explore his world more I myself felt the ending was quite enjoyable.
Rating : A Shinny Gem!
An Anime Worth going out of your way for, Easy liked but not quite a true Gem.
