This show was already losing me lately but I think this is just putting the nail on the coffin. The show has much promise at first but we are only at the fifth episode and while the last few episode already felt a bit filler-ish this one was straight up a beach episode. This is completely unacceptable that a show with such a great story and setting turns up to become so bad and unoriginal. There doesn’t seem to be any reason why anyone would watch this show since it has already alienated nearly every single kind of viewers. The people who came here for the action are let down, the people who wanted science-fiction ends up completely dried and the people who enjoy those kinds of slice of life story have already left after the first science-fiction heavy first episode.
I just don’t understand what this show is trying to be, it just seems like it is failing at becoming anything meaningful after the solid first episode it had. Since the second episode my esteem for this show has just kept on dropping and if nothing happens to pick this show up I might not even be able to continue watching it because of how terribly disappointing the show is. Now don’t get me wrong here, the show isn’t as bad as I make it out to be, the program is that the animation and universe is so great that every single episode looks like a wasted 30 minutes compared to what awesome stuff could have been shown. The gap between what the show could have been and what it turned out to be is so huge that it just makes me weep silently in the dark at night before I go to bed.
Hopefully I’m completely wrong and this kind of episode was there just for character development and to help us understand the life on the Gargantia, but I’m getting pretty tired of waiting for something to happen. Unless some aliens show up or somebody dies, I don’t see what kind of good action could result from naval battle between old rusty ships of go-lucky human living a carefree and boring life. I want to learn more about space, the show as already spent too much time with naval fleets, I want to see space fleets and see the reaction of the Galactic Alliance when they learn where earth is and learn that not only does it still exist but it is also habitable, it ought to chance their view of the universe.
Most shows I usually say that I can’t wait before the next episode, but in the case of this one, I could wait 2 weeks in between episodes and I couldn’t care less.
