Wow, I am seriously surprised at Suisei no Gargantia, I was not expecting for a science-fiction show to come out this season, it seemed like the season was mostly a shoujo fest and now I’m welcomed by such a realistic and exciting show. We already got a space battle and a reunion with the home planet, we have an A.I and a young soldier, a group of earthling who are some kind of archaeologist .. this show just smell of goodness.
As of now I’m willing to say that this is the show I have the best hope for this season. The art is beautiful, the story looks solid and the universe is really fascinating. Who would have though that humanity greatest enemy would be giant plants who shoots laser? The war against the Galactic Alliance of Mankind and those giant plant looked epic enough, I sure hope that the show will explore that part of the war again in the future. It would be quite interesting. It is also quite formidable to think that humanity somehow managed to evolved so that they were unable to remember where earth was to begin with.
I’m not sure if this show will take an approach similar to the Starcraft Universe to explain why those humans can’t find earth again (some explorer/criminals were sent into a distant galaxy and were never the one who got there in the first place and they have no access to previous knowledge) or if it has simply been so long that Earth was an Atlantis.
It is also kind of weird that the technological level of the human who left far surpasses the one of the one still on earth. It is especially weird that the technological level of the human on earth are quite similar to the level of technology we have now. If humanity originates from earth, it means that they needed the technological level of sending people into outer space to colonize other planet and make liveable space habitation. Yet the earthling that we currently see barely seems to have the technology to get to mars, let alone create a new civilization in outer space. How could human originate from that planet and become so much more advanced technologically while the people on earth haven’t progressed one bit meanwhile? It seems that there is something extremely fishy here. I’m really wondering what happen for humanity to become split this way and for earth to be so technologically primitive.
This show is exactly my kind of show, I love science-fiction and as of now this show seems to be a good science-fiction show, not too much bullshit and enough science to make the fiction believable. I am going to blog it, but not only will I blog it, I will also enjoy the hell out of it. The universe already fascinate me from episode 1 and there is just so many questions I ask myself…I want to learn everything !
