Finally, an anime review for Suisei no Gargantia!! This is the first mecha anime I've followed till the end. I've tried Gundam before, since I thought it should be tolerable, but I was wrong.

I guess for an uncultured mecha-ite, taking on hardcore mecha is a little too adventurous.

Either way, this anime is fantastic. 

Ledo (actually I prefer "Red" but this is not about my preferences so...) is a young ensign from the Galactic Alliance of Humankind who fights the Hideauze race in space. They kind of have a home up in space. Apparently they decided Earth could not be habited because of the fourth ice age. They explain this further in the anime so if you watch it then you'll understand.

So Ledo and the other fighters, who do so using Machine Calibers, were fighting Hideauze when their failed attempt at intruding on their (the Hideauze) home base causes Ledo to crash land on Earth. When he wakes up, he realises he's been in a state of cryostasis for 6 months while his wounds healed. 

He was found by a community of humans who lived in large ships. The one he landed on was Gargantia, ruled by a Commander by the name of Fairlock and others. 

In his quest to figure out how to get back to the Galactic Alliance, he learns to adapt to the new surroundings and customs, like what they do when it rains or their system of salvaging stuff from the bottom of the sea.

He meets Amy, a 15-year-old messenger, too, though in a rather unconventional way >.<  

This story is technically about the ups-and-downs in Ledo's time on Gargantia while the story progresses. Don't worry, the plot thickens by the episode and I guarantee that when the anime ends, you will be satisfied.

That is, of course, if you like that kind of happy-ever-after.

Guess it depends, then :P

I personally enjoyed this anime right from the start to the end. I believed that this 13-episode anime could have lasted a longer time, but I guess they're making it up with a second season, right?

Yes, by the way, a second season has been confirmed. Now all I gotta do is wait >.<

Here are the voice actors/actresses!!

Ledo *Ishikawa Kaito*
- Taku (Suki-tte Ii Na Yo)
- Manatsu Souda (RDG: Red Data Girl)
- Tsumugu Kihara (Nagi no Asukara)
- Saitou Mao (Super Seishun Brothers)

Amy *Kanemoto Hisako*
- Katsuragi (Sekirei ~ Pure Engagement)
- Nozomi Kujo (Bleach)
- Ogawa Chizuru (Suki-tte Ii Na Yo)
- Kotoura Haruka (Kotoura-san)

Chamber *Sugita Tomokazu*
- Kagami Mikage (Ceres: Celestial Legend)
- Renkotsu (Inuyasha)
- Onizaki Takuma (Hiiro no Kakera)
- Arcana Famiglia (Pace)

Striker *Fujimura Ayumi*
- Zelda (Astarotte no Omocha)
- Kannagi Ayano (Kaze no Stigma)
- Ayuzawa Misaki (Maid Sama)
- Ozawa Haruka (Shinrei Tantei Yakumo)

I know, surprising right? I didn't expect that Ledo and Amy would have also worked together in Suki-tte Ii Na Yo! It's so cute!

That's it, then.
