Gargantia finale, Railgun and Giant Hairballs 13

Suisei no Gargantia 13 is a good finale to a good series. And if some of it seemed too inexplicable or even nutty, well, much of the series was, and I ignored (or laughed at) those things because what the show succeeded in other ways. We start with an interesting debate between Chamber and Striker, … Continue reading Gargantia finale, Railgun and Giant Hairballs 13

Gargantia and Titan 12

Tens: Gargantia, Attack on Titan

Suisei no gargantia 10 is basically celebration, moping, and some weird philosophizing by a machine. Pinion's great future fleet of doom, I mean, excavation party, starts to uncover all sorts of juicy items from the whalesquid's nest, and so we now have another area of conflict to work with. He figures since he (meaning Ledo … Continue reading Tens: Gargantia, Attack on Titan

Suisei no Gargantia 9's big revelation, "We have met the enemy, and he is us," was hardly a surprise. I was betting on the Hideaze being evolved or mutated squid, and I was half right. The second-half flashback sequence had me scratching my head. Was this video data the only thing they could salvage? Was … Continue reading More catching up: Gargantia 9, Attack on Titan 9, RDG 10
