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 Ledo and his humanoid mobile weapon Chamber are swallowed up into a distortion of time and space. Waking from his artificially induced hibernation, Ledo 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. Ledo 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 Ledo, who has lived a life where he knows nothing but fighting, these days of peace continue to surprise him. (Source: ANN)

Review:

I really enjoyed this anime. It had a strong beginning and keeps you interested till the end. The ending was very sad for me. Though i don’t hate sad ending. I like the fact that the Mecha had its own personality it’s something that I haven’t seen in Mecha anime before. I also liked the fact that through out the anime you actually see how the main character adapts with the new environment he’s in. There was some awesome action going on there. Not to mention, I loved the character design as well as the animation. The story was amazing, with a sad ending. *sobs*
