What did /a/ think of Gargantia?
>>
Decent start, got a bit lost towards the end
Chamber a best, every other character a shit
>>
>>118627850
I completely agree with you. This thread is off to a good start.

Chamber squished the cute squid girl.
Automatically shit tier character.

Not enough Bellows getting raped and impregnated by horny pirates.

Hippy bullshit that ruined itself the instant they got mad at Ledo for killing the pirates.

Unforgiveable!
>>
>>118628473

No. Watch it.
>>
>>118628473
It's even worse. Pirates capture a ship, prepare to rape and kill the crew. MC kills them all with his mecha, people bitch at him because he killed the pirates
>>
>>118628473

First two episodes are completely different from the rest. Right after those two, it shifts gears and becomes a whole different show.
>>
>>118628473
Not really no, watch anyway if only for Chamber
>>
>>
>>118628649
what a bunch of ungrateful cunts
>>
>>118627850
Agreed. It was good until:
-Excessive moralfagging
-Two computers fucking arguing with each other about logic, when both of those computers came from the same manufacturer and likely employ the same fucking logic processing methods
>>
>>118628763
one of them had a bug tho
>>
>>118628842
A bullshit, lazy ass-pull of a plot device
>>
The beginning was great, the MC getting used to his new life was very fun to watch, but it got boring as soon as the real plot started.
>>
>>118628763
Less moralfagging, more world-building, and more about the space war would've made it more enjoyable. Also the porn contributed nothing

Pretty much this. I dropped it even though I wanted to watch it with /a/

Yes, but it's still a computer. Computational processes (if purely software) are not subject to decay over time if left alone.

it didn't decay, its just not made for being stranded out of nowhere in that situation

did the ovas explain more stuff?

>>118628763

It was supposed to be an illustration of why Machines were still paired with Human operators, despite being the squishiest part of the combination. Left to their own decisions for too long, the Machine Calibers lose sight of their original programming.

>>118628256
Take a look at the above image again. Chamber managed to stay true to his original goals, only thanks to his interaction with his human pilot.
>>
>>118629893
>>118629984

Hmm... actually, after reading up about the OVAs, I stand corrected. Unlike Ledo, Kugel had a far different set of experiences with the local humans. As a result, Kugel deliberately set Striker on the path of eugenic cleansing before he died.

Wasted potential. Also: shit

Wait, was this some niconico-only special?
>>
>>118628751

People give it shit, but it makes sense in context.

This is a group of people who haven't had a total-war scenario where extermination of the other side was the goal in centuries or longer. It is waterworld, land is scarce as shit. Most people live on boats linked together in giant barges.

If you blow up a ship, it is fucking LOST. Gone FOREVER. There are no more shipyards, no more mines to get more metal.

And the pirates that were destroyed belong to a larger, more powerful fleet of pirates. A pirate fleet that, in order to protect their reputation, would now have no choice but to come after Gargantia and take their price in blood in order to establish themselves as top dog before anyone else started to question them. Pirates that no one fears don't get tribute.
>>
>>118628186
What is this? I've never seen this even mentioned before, though I haven't really frequented these threads since the series ended.
>>
>>118630330

Yep. Striker was doing exactly as it was meant to do, it was not insane. It just had unreasonable goals that had been set for it, and it would stop at nothing to achieve them.
>>
>>118630996
>but it makes sense in context.

It makes ABSOLUTELY NO FUCKING SENSE because they have Chamber who could literally take over the world in 48 hours if he was ordered to do it.
>>
>>118631093
They're liberals and not Hitler. Does that explain their actions?
>>
>>118631093

No, they don't.

They don't have Chamber, Ledo does. They have known Ledo for about a day, and that day started with him kidnapping a member of their crew. They don't know where he comes from or what he wants, and they don't really have and indication that he wont just fuck off and leave him high and dry so that the entire fleet suffers for what were his actions.

They can't afford to plan for Ledo saving their ass, because they don't have any reason to trust him yet and he has done nothing but cause trouble for them in the very short time they have known him.

Even if they did think he could be relied upon to save them, unleashing him upon the enemy to just exterminate all of the pirates like roaches is still an idea counter to their entire way of life and the survival strategy that their fleet has been founded on for generations. Military conquest simply isn't a part of their culture.
>>
>>118631093
>>118631254

And they didn't know Chamber is this powerful either.
>>
>>118631353

Even after Chamber has been with them for months, you get the sense that they never quite realize just how much more powerful he is than anything they know. They know he is better than them, but half of the technology in chamber is impressive in a context that they don't understand.

It is no surprise that the Kugel fleet mistook Striker for a god.

The girls in this show looked extremely "fertile". Like they inspired a really strong, animalistic urge to impregnate them, moreso than other anime girls.

>>118632092

Well, it gets kind of cool towards the end again. Basically, the beginning and end parts that were written by Gen Urobuchi.
>>
>>118631908

The best part, which was a nice and subtle detail, was that when Chamber calls out Striker for "If your pilot makes bad decisions, you will too arrive at the same illogical conclusion. Thankfully Ledo made nothing but good decisions so I am fine" Chamber is incapable of realizing that he cannot self-diagnose. He would think he arrived at the right conclusions not matter what Ledo did, he can't tell if those conclusions are good or bad from his perspective. That's the whole point of the flaw.

>>118627750
Liberal propaganda garbage.. I mean, really killing a criminal is bad?
>>
>>118632425

The killing of the pirates wasn't what was bad. It was the fact that the killing of the pirates signed Gargantia up for a fight they didn't want and under normal circumstances would not win.

"What have you done you little shit? Now they are going to come back in force and kill a whole bunch of us to put us in our place. Thanks a bunch."
