Suisei no Gargantia Season 2 - News & Speculation



Well this is certainly interesting. Hopefully it's a movie and not a second season. While they could do more with that universe, Ledo's story is pretty much done so I wouldn't want it getting dragged out much further.

Wow, this, Psycho Pass, Madoka’s new entries (movies & whatnot) and, to some extent, Ufotable’s Fate/Stay Night project . It seems like we’re having Urobuchi Phase 2 (just like Marvel’s MCU) whether he’s directly involved or not.

I hope it takes on Avalon with an all new cast. There's not much more to tell about Gargantia and Ledo.

But then it would have to have a completely different name!
Also the Galactic Alliance are essentially space nazis. They're racial supremacists who practice eugenics and wipe out what they consider inferior species and inferior examples of their own species. All we ever knew about Avalon was their propaganda.
They only work as an evil adversary!

A prequel when the Gargantia fleet was starting to come together would be interesting, though, plenty of stories to be told in that world.

Now I really didn't expect this, but if it doesn't focus on the galactic alliance and the war that they are fighting I'm not going to be sold.

I don't think it's necessary to revive Chamber, I'd rather have a new AI to take his place.

Plot prediction: The Aliance gets Ledo's message a few thousand years later and come to earth to slaughter Ledo's descendants therefore making up for Urobuchi's low death quota from last season. If the descendants are lucky they'll unearth Chamber but most of them will still die horribly

I genuinely laughed at this lol.
I don't think I can watch this if Ledo, Amy and the rest of the people in Gargantia are not going to be in it, it'll just make me feel sad.

YES! I really hoped for this! But isn't this surprising? I thought the sells were not good enough for a 2nd season?

Anyway... I thought that the relationship between Ledo and Amy was left hanging, so if it is a direct sequel or a sequel with a little timeskip, then I am eagerly awaiting this!

Yeah DVD/BD sales were not bad, not great, at ~8k per volume. It's certainly underrated and I honestly didn't expect it would get a sequel treatment either. Though I'm glad TPTB has agreed that it deserves one (the UroButcher factor at work, I'm sure ).

Like most I'm curious as to what they're planning to go story-wise. The project director has stated that the overriding theme of the show is how one deals with moving on from a sheltered life and learning to work and co-exist with others as a society.

I can understand how some people might've been disappointed when they expected a space epic with endless Gundam/Macross-esque fights, but personally I quite liked the direction the show took and I would like for the staff to treat the sequel in a similar vein i.e. the exploration of human interaction in a sci-fi setting (with your signature Urobuchi conspiracy looming in the narrative ), instead of another one of your run-of-the-mill space mecha show we seem to be getting every single season.
