Now that's more like it. I think most people who were having doubts about this show should feel relieved now. Okay, maybe that's not the right word, since tension has definitely taken hold.

Spoiler for episode 7:


I thought this show would go from around 25 MPH to 80 in about three seconds, and I sure wasn't disappointed. Glad to be watching.

I'm seeing some incorrect summaries here. >.>

I guess most of you are piecing things together based on partial Japanese skills so I don't blame you, but here's what's going on (I do understand Japanese) to keep people from getting confused:

I thought it was less "we worship the whalesquid" holy and more "We mess with them, they'll mess up the fleet" fearful reverence. Pinion has a grudge against them for killing his brother and it looks like there are more that feel the same. The fact the whalesquid/sea Hideuze don't attack unless provoked me wonder about the Alliance: who shot first in their war?

You probably should've used spoiler tags, no offense.

Well I just watched the episode. Somewhat good, although not crazy good.

Not sure why they could not just say "hideous", maybe copyrights or something like that.

Just a few things I want to mention and add to the thread that stood out to me regarding this episode:

- The show takes a pretty drastic turn in the use of color for the first episode of it's second half. While the previous episodes surrounding Gargantia featured a lot of very bright and vibrant colors this week uses a more subdued color pallette. Lots of shots at dusk or in dimly lit rooms or from beneath the seabed as well. One might be lead to believe that this is to indicate a change in overall tone before we even get to the content of the episode

- While Ledo was seeming to slowly adjust to the simpler life on the Gargantia we see this episode when the opportunity arises he is all too ready to get back to the lifestyle he is most familiar with. Fighting the Hideauze, "the enemy of humanity". Nothing else matters to him the second he has a chance to get back into things, not even Amy's wishes, not even Ridget's idle threats. It makes one wonder how the previous episodes will come into play now if at all as they only seem to have had a temporary effect on his outlook of the situation and his programming still seems to have the larger pull on his interpretation of matters.

- The "whalesquids" do not seem to attack unprovoked which makes one wonder if they are the Hideauze we saw in the opening episode, offshoots or something else entirely. It brings into question whether the Alliances portrayal of the war with the Hideauze is 100% accurate or not. We never saw the Hideauze attacking a human enclave unprovoked but we have seen them counter an Alliance attack in the only major battle we've seen so far.

- Pinion raises a death flag by mentioning a dead brother and the quest for vengeance not earlier but into the shows second half. Does not bode well for him in the coming weeks, especially since it looks like he and Ledo will be going to the bottom of the ocean in a quest for answers about their history and that of the whalesquids. I assume answers with start to come as that expedition progresses.

- As I suspected seemingly semi-competent peace time fleet commander looks to be on the way out which leads me to believe that the seemingly much more capable Ridget will be rising to take his place before long, possibly as soon as next week. She seems to handle situations more proactively than he does and is more decisive while he has been shown to be purely reactive and reluctant to make key decisions right away. If things are to progress towards open conflict at this point he is not the person that need in charge, but someone like Ridget who has shown she is willing to handle matters directly like she tried to with Ledo at the end of this weeks episode.

So a whalesquid is a sacred animal.
Wow, that goes against everything Ledo is fighting for.
Hideauze he knows are not the ones Gargantian's know.
They may be the same species, but their actions were not the same.
Everything was fine until Ledo provoked them.
You could feel the tension in the air.

Considering whalesquids don't have giant shells on their back it is safe to say that they were not the same, a subspecies perhaps.

The shells could also be some kind of life support for working in space.

I'm guessing they may be an offshoot group of the Hideauze - if the species is intelligent there might be differing philosophies among them just as there are among humans.
