A society based only on fishing and salvaging, a society which produces little to no good other than those that come from artisan. A society where no invention never seems to come to be, where the only technology comes from what is salvage from previous civilization. This world is a hippy Utopia if I ever see one, I’m pretty sure this is the kind of society a lot of anti-capitalist, anti-institution people would love to inhabit. Considering that I am a pro capitalist and pro institution type of guy, the setup of Suisei no Gargantia just makes me sick. I want Ledo to be able to escape since I view the Gargantia has a completely boring and uninteresting place. It makes it even more difficult to like this show now that it is bound to stay on earth with those guys. I find a scientific and technophile society to be most exciting and to be plunged into the complete opposite feels awkward and without surprise.
Meanwhile it was kind of hilarious that Ledo confounds octopus for enemies. It is already quite obvious that no real issue will come from what we saw in the last few minutes of the episode. Worst thing that could happen is that the octopus gets smashed to smithereens and Bellow will laugh her ass off. I mean I don’t see how anything tragic could possibly happen in this show anymore. It seems that the worst danger anyone can face is pirates and even those are a complete non-issue for Chamber to take care of. I just don’t see what the point of this show could be anymore, the only kind of enjoyment I get from the show is when Amy is dancing half naked and Ledo is staring at her like a complete pervert. It is simply becoming increasingly difficult for me to actually enjoy this.
Now don’t get me wrong, I’m not saying that this show is actually bad in any way, it just had such a misleading first episode that it should have been expected that the wrong kind of audience would try out this show. The first episode should advertise what the show will be all about, not give a false sense of awesomeness that will lead to complete disappointment from there on out. I love the cruelty of war and warmonger nation, so when you serve me with a Hippy community that won’t kill anyone, won’t progress and will just have fun and take everything relax…I’m usually disappointed.
This is it for this week, hopefully next week I’ll find something interesting to talk about when it comes to this show…who knows.
