Is this the final episode, or is there still 1 more to go? The net's been abuzz that there's a 13th ep of Gargantia.

It will have a 13th episode.
Also there will be 3 OVA episodes later, IIRC.

Evil_Sephiroth 2013-06-22 13:46

Only 13...So rushed ;_;

Although I feel Chamber getting destroyed or severely damaged at the end of the series is nearly unavoidable, in all truth I hope he doesn't get destroyed. Who would want our round round mecha Kyon-kun to die? D:

So, don't die Chamber!!!

As much as no one knows how the story will move forward, I'm sure they will be "predictable" when looking back.

Will there be a mecha battle? How will Ledo react? Will there be sacrifices/casualties? Who will be the unlikely ally? There are still too many variables at the moment, the very first scene shall determine which route this story will take, before being dragged all the way back to a happy ending.

Personally I don't think there will actually be a fancy mech battle, and probably will have more arguments back and forth instead. Chamber will play a massive part in this episode, depending on how Ledo manipulates the military protocol to his favour. That being said, I think there will be sacrifices. I don't think Ledo is foolish enough to actually carry out the program if it involves bloodshed, he has learnt and gain enough self awareness during his time on Gargantia to know what's right.

===

Edit: apparently the episode just finished. Judging by the screenshots, there's one convenience in the plot that I'm not sure what to think of. I would need to watch the subs to understand what happened.
Also, lulz this guy:

I wonder, how the Gargantia will take part in the fight and what's the golden key for? Hidden nukes? :D

Yeah, like what we can see in the previous episode’s thread, many members (both Urobuchi veterans and non-veterans) here already guessed that Kugel isn’t kicking anymore the moment he appeared in hologram only. That resulted in no surprise whatsoever when it actually happens/comes true. :heh:

lightbringer 2013-06-23 09:52

This episode ought to finally put to rest the recurring so often here question of why an all-powerful AI/mecha still needs a human pilot. Look at the shit that happens when there isn't one :)

I thought there would be about 50% chance that Kugel is dead, but it makes sense in retrospect - he was not exactly a sticker for rules, so he wouldn't have gone apeshit crazy like that.

Forbin 2013-06-23 11:11

So my guess is we are far into the future where the war is over..but chamber kept Ledo alive

Thinking about it, I suppose this should have been the most likely route the series would have taken, given it's limited operating time (only one episode left).

Perhaps they would have left Kugel alive had they more time to develop the story, but this probably concludes the storyline quickly and leaves it open to the "big surprise" they supposedly have in the last episode (I remember an interview where Army's seiyuu hinted as such).

aohige 2013-06-23 12:33

Kinda figured, the whole thing felt so detached from emotion, it didn't feel like Kugel was the same character from the episode 1.
The "Kugel is dead" was the most popular, but I also saw some theory like "Kugel is turning half-squid, driving him insane" lol
