Gargantia on the Verdurous Planet episode 13 (finale) – The robot is always the best character

This is going to sound a little harsh, but my main problems with Gargantia are eerily similar to the problems I had with Fractale. It built up a really interesting world that looked like, from the earlier episodes, it was going to build up on some key themes. However as the story progressed, it became […]

Gargantia on the Verdurous Planet episode 12 – Walk the plank

Throwing people overboard who are not considered useful enough to society aside, I think this regime is perfectly fine. Oh sure, you might think this act of mass sacrifice to appease their robot god and to keep population numbers down is barbaric, but this is only because in this timeline, birth control hasn’t been perfected […]

Gargantia on the Verdurous Planet episode 11 – Communism is bad

Yo guys, I think Butch Gen might be into liberalism. I first had an inkling of this when Psycho Pass introduced us to a world where a bunch of brains in jars told us whether we would be naughty or nice, but boy did they ever make it super obvious in this episode of Gargantia. […]

Gargantia on the Verdurous Planet episode 10 – Pinion waves his dick over the radio

I’m not very good at coming up with puns. Inushinde is the real king of that. Sometimes I can come up with the odd movie or song title reference, but those are either cliche or too obscure to be funny. That’s why for years I never bothered with the post subtitles. But bringing on those […]

Gargantia on the Verdurous Planet episode 9 – Ika MusuBLEARGH

Shinmaru late with Flowers of Evil post, Inushinde missing an Attack on Titan post, and now me being late on Gargantia posts again. The Cart Driver is going downhill. I was going to make lots of clever jokes about how the Hideauze moe girl murdering scene would have been way more emotionally traumatising if they […]

Gargantia on the Verdurous Planet episode 8 – Sad violin music

I don’t often get a chance to talk about properly bad background music in an anime. I can bitch about the horrible jpop idol opening songs that infest 90% of anime out there. But the actual background music rarely gets a negative mention. Plenty of people saying positive things about their favourites, but if the […]

Gargantia on the Verdurous Planet episode 7 – Co-existence? Urrr wuts dat?

If the solution behind the intergalactic space war really is as simple as the Alliance not even considering that maybe they could have just left the space snails alone, I will be supremely disappointed. I could buy that maybe some skirmishes between the Alliance and space snails kept happening until one side realised the other […]

Gargantia on the Verdurous Planet episode 6 – Shut up and dance for me

A lesson on how writing episodics can sometimes lead me down really strange paths: I could now blag my way through the origins and history of bellydancing. I was under the impression that Ledo asking Amy to perform the bellydance for him was not too far from asking for a private dance at a pole-dancing […]
