Suisei no Gargantia Ep 12
|Suisei no Gargantia|
|Moment of Decision|
So where were we?
Oh right, Pinion the Jackass decided to sign with Kugel's ship and work on board it so he can have access to cool gadgets.
My opinion of him had never been lower.
Obviously Lukkage thought so too, because she commented that she didn't know he was so cheap.
I've never liked her more XD
It was at this moment, with the gleam in her eye, that she tells Pinion she'll be planning some sort of rebellion. Of course, we're all wondering if Pinion will be a part of it.
Red, on the other hand, as he goes through the biggest dilemma he's ever had to in life, sees a chipmunk that resembled Grace, Amy's pet squirrel.
He chases after it, of course, and for a moment I also thought that Amy was onboard.
After a closer look, I realised the chipmunks had some differences. He, eventually, noticed too.
It suddenly starts raining, and Red remembers all the things the people on Gargantia did when it started raining.
As he was busy thinking back, though, these people had a custom of their own.
It's too disgusting to type, so you'll have to watch to decipher for yourselves.
It's at this moment in the episode that Pinion decides to say "SCREW IT!" and join Lukkage's rebellion, though. (He didn't actually say those words, but you get what I mean)
Red also starts thinking hard about what he really wants to do. He consults Chamber, which I think is so cute.
Melty, however, had a mission of her own. Under orders, more specifically Red's, she was to notify Gargantia of the impending attack.
While Ridget and the others think that retreat is the best solution for the time being, Amy interrupts them, asking them why is it when Red who wasn't part of Earth in the first place, fighting a war meant for them.
That sure got them thinking.
Red, now also part of Lukkage's rebellion, decides to confront Kugel and Striker, his robot.
Naturally, the fight was super intense.
I was practically shaking in my seat. And frankly speaking, looking at all these photos is making me eager to watch it again.
Aha~ The cliffhanger for Episode 12 was beyond anything like any other.
I shan't say it here, though, I'll leave it for the next half of this post :)
But for now, this is where it stops.
Suisei no Gargantia Ep 13
|Legend of the Verdurous Planet|
Okay, so from the pictures, I'm sure you can see that Kugel's actually dead.
After finding out, Striker decides to 'let the cat out of the bag' and tell Red that he's been dead for a while now, although the cause of his death was never explained.
Red was pretty pissed because it made him realise that he was being confused over what a robot was saying about duty and shit like that.
Naturally, he felt like destroying Striker more than ever.
With Pinion, Lukkage has finally gotten her Surfing Lobster back on the seas and starts kicking butt.
Pinion also controls the machines and starts blasting stuff away.
The fight with Striker gets more intense as we get deeper and deeper into the episode.
Over here, we can see that by the bottom right picture, Red is getting ready to make a life-changing decision.
And he does.
So what is his 'life-changing' decision? He initiates this neural battle combat technique system that allows him to fight as Chamber.
It significantly increases his power and everything, but at the expense of the user's life.
So, technically, Red will die.
As they continue fighting, though, Amy comes into the picture.
I don't remember what importance she played in appearing at this point, but she did, so...
Meanwhile, Ridget and the rest on Gargantia are getting ready to use another awesome weapon they kept hidden from everybody.
It made loads of explosions too. The sky was a beautiful tint of red.
Back with Red, his life is about to deteriorate to nothing when he starts thinking about Amy.
Thinking about how much he wanted to see her again and how although he is willing to die to save his friends, a part of him wants to survive and stay in Gargantia like how they used to.
This is when Chamber becomes the main character momentarily.
The angel Chamber actually ejected Red from the cockpit, saying that he was 'relieved from duty' as he was incompetent.
He then single-handedly beat Striker like a drum, though at the cost of his own robot-life.
Everything was resolved then. Red couldn't believe that Chamber had done all that to save him, but he was thankful nonetheless.
And so, like that, the war with Kugel's army ended and Red was saved.
On a side note, Pinion decided to keep his hairstyle. And Lukkage also joined Gargantia. Well, actually many of Kugel's leftovers went over to live on Gargantia.
Bebel became an archeology lecturer. Lord knows if he has the qualifications, but hey, they gotta start somewhere, right?
And lastly, the moment I've been waiting for since I decided I loved Suisei no Gargantia, Amy and Red's happy-ever-after >.<
Red became somewhat of an expert salvager and he can even do it without disturbing the Hideauze now. He hopes that one day, they'll be able to communicate with them.
-.- Good luck.
So that's how Suisei no Gargantia ended! Wonderful episode, wasn't it? The battle between Kugel and Gargantia lasted an entire episode! Actually, it would be more than that, considering the previous episode already had part of the battle in it.
Do you know what this means?
This anime has a better war event than Twilight -.-
|Special tribute to Chamber|
It was such a great thrill following this anime as it ran through all the episodes. I'm also glad that Suisei no Gargantia's the first anime in which I've completed full episodical reviews (although I only started from Episode 3).
I'm also ecstatic to announce that there has been an OVA release, and that another one will be coming up soon on October 25th. It's my further delight to declare that a second season for this epic anime has been confirmed, although we don't know exactly when the release date is yet.
That's it, then :)

P/S/S: I'll still be doing an anime review for this. Stay tuned :D
