So, what are the chances of this breakaway fleet being slaughtered when they pick a fight with the hideauze, and Ledo returning to Gargantia after that?

I'm wondering if it's already too late for this series to turn dark after so many episodes.

I don't think the whole fleet will be completely destroyed but I think that the chances that it will suffer heavy casualties are fairly high.

There aren't many episodes left and Amy and Ledo cannot stay separated for too long.

I also have the feeling that Melty is the next in line for the Urobutchering.

I guess the show might be getting darker. But for Mlety to die, wouldn't that be bit of too much swing in the feel of the show?

What are the chances that the survivors will put the blame on Ledo for failing to protect them ? IMO, the chances are high due Pinion opening his big mouth and saying that they will be find as long as they have Ledo and Chamber.

The guy only wrote the first and last episodes yet you guys are blaming him for every bad thing happening in the series.

Well the decision of making a character die and which is something that he could have determined as one of the two main writers of the series, even if the episode where it happens isn't written by him.

Didn't he say that this series will not be as dark? I think the chances of the entire main cast surviving this are fairly high.

Well yeah but I don't think that Melty as a character is more important than... Fairlock. And if Fairlock can be considered "main cast" then your theory would be already disproven.

Pinion will probably survive.

I'm not gonna be surprise if Ledo's action causes the death to almost all of the dissenting fleets.

I only picked this up because Urobuchi was involved tbh. The only thing keeping me interested is the anticipation that shit will hit the fan. Take away this anticipation and the story seems pretty bland to me when I try look at it objectively.

You know, I think this is becoming a problem.
Urobuchi has become such an important name that just attaching it to an anime is an automatic sale boost.

This leads producers to ask him to join their projects even marginally so then they can overemphasize his contribution and sell the product as if it was entirely made by him.

Honestly it isn't realistic to think that Gen has suddenly become so active, and if you look carefully you'll notice that Gargantia is co-written by him and Kazuya Murata, who also happens to be the director.

Just by that you should already understand who has more influence on the whole product, but as a general rule of book marketing when something is co-written by a famous author and by a not so famous one, you should always assume that the latter did most of the job.

This is Gen's resume of work, according to Wiki. I don't see any pattern of producers having him join their projects for "marginal" impact. In fact, Gargantia is only the sixth anime project he's been involved in.

Now, for point of comparison, here's Mari Okada's resume of work, according to Wiki.

Considering that, there's nothing unrealistic about Gen's level of activity. His level of activity is actually pretty low compared to Mari Okada's.

Gen is writing the first episode, the last episode, and he is also handling series composition. This story is as much his baby as it is anybody's.

I never considered Fairlock "main cast". He barely had any screentime. And he did not get butchered, he was old and obviously suffering from a chronic illness. It was not a surprise that he died, and they spent a whole episode on the funeral. Any number of the old geezer captains can die, as long as the main characters and their close friends are fine it should be OK.

If Fairlock's not main cast, then neither is Melty. What has Melty done other than provide fanservice? Fairlock at least has had significant plot relevance, and that's before he died.

I don't consider him "main cast" either, but neither Melty is in my opinion.
In episode 6 I was pointing out how Saya and Melty didn't seem to have any other reason to exist apart from adding more meat for the fanservice.

I kinda changed my mind with Episode8 where Saya has a part in giving more depth to Amy's profile as one of her best friends. Perhaps this will be expanded further.

The choice of making Melty split from the trio still looks suspicious to me, and a lot of things suggest that something bad will happen to Flange's fleet.
So far Melty is little more than a background character, but she might have an important role if something will happen to her.
