Suisei no Gargantia episode 8: Departure

Suisei no Gargantia fleet commander dead

The soundtrack for Suisei no Gargantia sure is intense. I don’t care much for this show anymore since it doesn’t cater to my interest at all, I have trouble becoming attached to any events and any emotions that are explored in the show usually simply rub off my skin. Yet this episode soundtrack was so profoundly sad that I couldn’t help but feel a bit saddened by the events.

I mean even after everything that has happened I still dislike the fleet commander, Ridget, Amy and just about every old so-called veteran that stayed on the Gargantia. I already know that the show will aim to make sure that everyone who left the Gargantia will look like fool, yet those are the people I would like to cheer on and have their story told. The life on the Gargantia is boring and stale, no progress ever really comes out of it, they just take what ever they can and do with what ever they have. No progress is never accomplished without the greed of man, Humanity would be one boring species if we never tried to outdone ourselves. Why does the show really have to go with the conservative and hippy way about everything?

Luckily, there is another ending possible for the show. It was really no surprise to me that Ledo had no way to get back home unless he found a subspace transportation device, after all I would not expect the Galactic Alliance to be anywhere near earth if they had no idea where earth was to begin with. So I’m not surprised in the least that Ledo won’t be able to make it back home with the technology available to him right now, but there is still a way. It would be possible that deeper into the ocean, there were ancient human technology that allowed for faster than light space travel. After all the ancient human left for space and it was never mentioned if they used regular traveling method or faster than light one. What if   they found just that by killing every single whale-squid? Why not? After all the whale-squid are really advanced and intelligent species, they would most likely cluster around highly advanced technologies themselves.  This way maybe Ledo will be able to make it back to the Galactic Alliance and we’ll finally have some kind of science-fiction in the show…

Who am I kidding, for anyone still watching this waiting for sci-fi or action, you made a bad choice of show, but I can’t blame you, I did the same. It was so misleading at first, I was convinced this show would be dramatic, action-packed and about space craft and mecha. Turns out it was about old boats, fish and stupid hippies. Honest mistake.
