I'm sensing more snarkiness coming from him indirectly.

Well I guess this means the Gargantia won't be completely destroyed and sunk and everyone dies.

That's a relief...

Oh, thats cool!

Just some questions:
1)Do the rules specify any limit on how many design submissions a single user can submit for the competition?

2)Do the designs need to be coloured? Do I need to provide any explanations for my designs?

3)Has anyone here used pixiv before? How do I upload something to pixiv with a specific illustration tag? I already have a pixiv account, and have uploaded a piece of Rurouni Kenshin fanart, but I'm not sure how to tag it so the wider Japanese audience can gain access to it.

I can't help with the first question, since I don't know Japanese, but I don't think the designs have to be colored, and any description would help I'd think. However, I don't know if the judges will actually look at English language entries. The pessimistic little voice in me thinks just because they have an English version of the contest rules doesn't mean the organizers will go to the trouble of getting foreign language entries translated.

As for the illustration tag, the best way is to just copy paste the ガルガンティア乗組員 tag into your list of tags when you submit the illustration. I think it's a lot easier for Japanese fans to find fanart of the series they're interested in if your tags are in Japanese, since that's the language they'll do their searches in. If you don't know the Japanese name of a series I'd look it up on Wikipedia and copy/paste in the Japanese title in the tags list. Another good idea is to look at what kind of tags other fanartists have used for a series. For example, some pairings have specific tags on Pixiv, and if you have a fanart of that specific pairing it makes it easier for people to find your work if you also use the correct pairings tag.

Thank you so much!

Will anyone be attempting to submit anything for the contest?

Although I'm unsure what kind of character designs are more eye-catching to the Japanese. Something typically cute/handsome/boyish? Or something more sexy/motherly/experienced?

This is unexpected. I actually find this to be very interesting although the mecha design is a little not to my taste.

Do you think an English-language dub of Gargantia will ever be produced?

If it were, my opinion is that the English dub would have to go that extra step to fit the movie like quality of the presentation.
I think one way could be to dub the Gargantia flotilla residents so that they speak in a variety of accents.(ie, A has a South African accent, B has a US Midwest accent, etc)
It would give a sort of diversity amongst the crew and establish them as a multiethnic group of survivors banding together on a flooded Earth. Nothing broad and ridiculous, but subdued and believable, like accomplished European actors speaking English.
This would be in contrast to Alliance characters who speak in a calm, logical BBC-meets-Spock English to further show the difference between the 2 cultures.

What do you think? Feel free to comment.

Sounds like an interesting plan. That said, what are Gargantia's prospects of getting licensed and dubbed?

Just wondering if some1 mentionned about it, what if... Ledo catch a cold?

I mean, in most SF's stories, people who live in space or capsuled cities didn't have anymore immunity against virus or bacteries since their air is sterilised, so what will happen if Ledo catch a cold? It might even kill him since he should have any immunity...

I would humbly like to ask for this forum's assistance once more if it is not too much trouble, in regards to:

http://gargantia.jp/#kaito_2
The above interview link has 2 images of Avalon, the Alliance space colony, as introduced in episode 1 of Gargantia.

The 2 diagrams are labelled in Japanese, but I am unable to read Japanese. I would like to inquire what the Japanese notes in the diagrams say in English, as I am curious as to Avalon's construction and components.

PS. Scroll down to find images.

Animesuki also drew attention to a spin-off Gargantia novel, which says it covers Ledo's army life.
http://gargantia.jp/#kaito_2

I would like to inquire what the novel is about, if it is alright with you.

Thank you very much.

Better a delay than poor quality, I suppose.

I'm looking forward to the OVA, though. Anybody know what "Haikyo Sendan" means?

The OVA episode title is "Abandoned Fleet Ruins". It's a reference to the phantom ship ruins they encounter in the episode. It's going to be about Amy and her friends teaching kids about their job, and also about a phantom ship ghost story which is going around, with the Gargantia eventually encountering the ship ruins. It's set during the series, so maybe between ep4 and 5.

Just marathoned eps 1 to 6. This is the Vandread anime that I've wanted to watch all these years. A sci-fi epic about a character stuck in a strange land. I am in such a happy place right now.

It's really a shame that the majority of anime out now are light novel adaptations. There's been a real deficit in original anime content for a long time, so it's great that something like Gargantia comes out every so often. And because they don't have to adapt anything, the pacing and flow is very, very good. As expected of anime originally meant to be anime.

I feel young again.

I just picked up the series a few days ago. I'm really liking it. At some points this has the quality of a Ghibli movie, and it looks gorgeous. I'm liking most of the characters for the most part, my only issue is that some episodes can be a bit boring because nothing really happens at times. Given, this is more of an "everyday" anime since Ledo is trying to fit in everyday life there. So for the most part, I'll let it slide.

I'm looking forward to the romance aspect of it too. Of course, we can all already tell who's going to be paired with who, it'll just be interesting to see how they play out.
