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 :twitch:. It seems like we’re having Urobuchi Phase 2 (just like Marvel’s MCU) whether he’s directly involved or not. :p

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:heh:

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 :cool:).

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 :heh:), instead of another one of your run-of-the-mill space mecha show we seem to be getting every single season.

Yeah, I'm surprised too that the show is getting a second season since I feel like the response to it was good but no where near the level that would convince the studio it was worth doing a whole second season on. A compilation movie with a few extra scenes was what I was expecting, but I'm pleasantly surprised by the news.

I wonder for the second season if they might follow up on the theme of the first season and explore what happens after a young person joins society. After all, the path of life doesn't become clear once you've find your place in the world. There are still a lot of obstacles we have to overcome on a daily bases, both big and small, and I'm wondering if these mundane but daily challenges might be the theme they'll tackle in the second season.

I honestly wonder if its going to still be following Ledo, I feel like his story was over so I got to think that while the setting will still obviously be on the Gargantia, I wouldn't be surprised if we got a whole new cast in a different time but with a lot of the same style and world structure.

Back at the end of the regular season, I posted (http://forums.animesuki.com/showthread.php?p=4743438#post4743438) these speculations about a sequel or sequels:
This has all the trappings of an "adventure-of-the-week" show starring Ledo, Amy, the squirrels, and a large supporting cast. There are a lot of possible side stories, too, with Pinion and his inamoratas, Ridget, Bebel, the flying girls, etc. There is also the whole mystery of the whalesquids and the open question about what's happening out in space and its relationship to what's happening on earth. I'm not thinking so much of another season but a franchise extending over multiple seasons. Urobutchi could have auteur responsibilities, but only write the occasional episode. Think Gene Roddenberry.

This would be a great thing for I.G. It would provide a nice predicable revenue stream to free them up for less conventional productions.

Guido
2013-10-23, 01:13
For me it's to early to tell if this second season is going to come either as another TV series or a movie.

However, I digress continuing the story, at least Ledo's. His journey is done.

The plot for the first series is self-concluding the way it was told, developed, and ended.

GreyZone
2013-12-24, 08:32

I'm certain that as soon as definitive or even reasonable speculative information regarding start date is circulated, someone will post something here. For now, I work under the assumption that no news is just that: no news.

GDB
2014-05-25, 16:28
SAO wasn't a film, it was just a long recap with a new episode. If these are truly OVAs, which means you have to physically purchase them via either mail-in or in-store, then no, Crunchyroll will not have them. And since they're only two episodes, I'm about 70% sure that they will be true OVAs and not TV specials.

Made an account to reply to this :P


I shut down my computer every few weeks. All activity ceases for a few hours. Then I turn it back on.

An analogy of what life and death are to machines: when our human hearts shut down, we can use defibrillators to start them back up. It doesn't work so well once the body begins to decompose though; luckily, machines don't decompose in a matter of minutes (rather, it takes years/decades, with a lot of weathering, before the average machine is beyond restarting).


Machines cannot die if they were never alive. One that was never alive has no soul. From that, one can say that one without a soul cannot die.

As Chamber himself put it:

- Suisei no Gargantia ep02 13:43, HorribleSubs translation


Sorry for trolling; couldn't help it. (Plz don't ban me, mods! >.<)

**!Spoiler Alert!**

If you watched to the very end of the episode (13), there's a subtle scene with some baby whale-squids latched onto a wreckage, part of which is shaped like a robotic hand reminiscent of those Chamber has.

And before that scene, it is mentioned that Ledo becomes known as a brave salvager. Salvagers salvage stuff. You can probably draw a useful conclusion out of that. :)

Watched the OVA (raw)...

There is no discussion topic for this OVA so, I will just post it here.


This OVA is the sequel to the main story. It's 53 mins. long!

The summary of story is: the exploration team which Ledo is working with on Gargantia tried to salvage a ship found under the sea. Things went wrong and Leo was trapped under the rock that fell on him. Gargantia people then sent a rescue team to save Ledo. They succeded. Amy run to hug Ledo as soon as he is back on the ship. Ledo x Amy FTW!!!!

There are many cute Ledo x Amy scene in this OVA but I won't spoil them.


The new girl, name Lima (I think), seems to know something about Kugel (need translation). She interests in Ledo and Chamber. She joined a rescue team to go to save Ledo.

I actually scrolled through the OVA just to check if Chamber was going to be in it or revive before I was going to watch it right away. No Chamber meant no watching. :heh:

Well, Chamber did show up, but not what I expected...

He didn't revive... well, at least not in this OVA. The reveal there in the end could potentially lead to Chamber reviving, or it could lead to a totally new unit. It was a different voice, so definitely a new unit for now.

I am a little excited about OVA 2. This OVA was more about the characters and daily life aboard the new bigger and greater Gargantia.

I watch this show partly for the romance, so the OVA was a hit with me. The reunion brought tears to my eyes. She was so happy. Enjoyable.

But I also watch this show for the science fiction, and perhaps ep2 will bring us more of that...next spring.

The new girl is played by Minase Inori (http://hashihime.blogspot.ca/2014/07/minase-inori-tiny-perfect-voice-arrives.html), the young seiyuu I featured last season. To my ear, this may be her best role yet. It takes her away from her usual high-voiced roles to something more straight and serious. And she can act.

I've updated the characters/seiyuus page (http://hashihime.x10.bz/etc/2013/gargantia/charsei.html) I made for the original series with pics of three new characters and their seiyuus: Rima (Minase Inori), Fraisu (Toriumi Kousuke) and the "robot" (as listed in the end-credits) we saw at the end (Sakurai Takahiro).

woah, so do the wormholes set their default destination to earth whenever they malfunction?? if we are interpreting this correctly this is the third yunboro from the alliance that had crash landed on earth!

unless of course, this girl can build chamber like yunboros from scratch.

thundrakkon
2014-11-08, 06:35
We don't really know much right now. That Machine Caliber could be a retrofit, a re-build, or her own. She could be part of the alliance sent to check things out, or she could be someone who really wants to know and understand about things.

BoyTitan
2014-11-08, 11:50
The alliance only has 2 models chamber and striker moder. So either thats a older suit that was left on earth and will get chamber A.I. later or its a body built from a compilation of crap and will be rebuilt getting chambers A.I. later. If I was chamber I would just stay dead get the feeling that new body is going to be a major downgrade. It probably came from that ship they found. The fact it can barely talk means it is definitely a dumb A.I. currently.

If I had to take a guess about what that Machine Caliber was.....

It's either an Old Earth Machine Caliber that Kugel's fleet picked up or Leema and her fleet somehow managed to find bits and pieces of Chamber and Striker and put them together in a semi-working fashion.

My real question would be if anyone else knows about it and why they would want to keep it a secret.

Watched the Gargantia: Meguru Kouro, Haruka OVA today. Wow, glad to see Ledo, Amy, and the rest of the crew back on this new adventure. Oh yeah, and Chamber is back even though it was shown in flashbacks.

Regardless, I can't wait to see Leema and her Machine Caliber next Spring... I wonder if that one holds the secret of the Alliance.

this is SUPER old but.. they are not nazis they dont say things like you need to hava this skin colour or eyes colour the just select the most fit humans, for example 1 guy who has an illnes that makes him weaker than the others or needs medicine, then they kill him. its still horrible but its more like "if he/she cant fight then it has to die"

Update: Yes, it is.

Well I just watched a Chinese sub so I can provide a summary:

Ledo recovered some data from that ship, an old weapon made on Earth before the makers headed to space - and it matches the combat mecha hidden by Leema. Turns out Leema is leading a team of 3 from a country from the great land, and is trying to recruit Ledo who they believe can get the mecha to work. Leema tell her guys Ledo can't be forced to co-operate, but they are getting restless for making no progress for so long. They also mentioned their original plan was to capture Striker's pilot.

Gargantia is getting low on resource due to all the new population so they head for the big trading place for some trading and R&R. Ridget tells others to gather intel if the great land countries are gathering resources, while Lukkage do a bit of that on her own. Leema mentioned she has an older brother. Ridget received a gift - an up-to-date map of political powers, and we found out she can't handle alcohol.

Leema tries to get Ledo and Amy to leave Gargantia and move to her country - she knows Ledo will not leave without Amy. She also promised that her country can cure Bevel. Of course they can't decide to leave easily.

After Gargantia leave port, they were approached by a fleet of combat ships from Leema's home country. Her men act of their own and kidnapped Amy to try to capture Ledo and complete their mission. But they are too late - their country already decided to destroy the weapon instead of risking it captured by their enemy. The mecha moved on it's own when the ships start shooting to try to destroy it. Leema confess to Ledo she no longer want to get Ledo involved in their war that lasted hundred of years. They get into the cockpit - Chamber lights up and enhanced the mecha. Lukkage join the fight and tell her crew they are leaving and going back to be pirate. Ledo pilots the mecha, disabled a bunch of ship and rescued Amy. The mecha was hit and Leema founds out she can't pilot it like Ledo. It got critically hit, sink into the ocean and finally have a little talk with Leema before ejecting her to safety. Lukkage invite Leema and she decide to join her instead going back to Gargantia.


Interesting setup for what season 2 could be.

UGH.

So we've been waiting for a decent sub of episode 2 for a couple of months now but looks like there's nothing on the internet at all, so I made do with a sub par engrish sub of it that I found on some site.

Without going into spoilers, looks like it expanded the world quite a bit, but apart from that nothing much really happened, and the big cliffhanger at the end of ep1 turned out to be not as exciting as I thought it would be.

I'm very disappointed that s2 was cancelled, but at least episode 2 provided some closure for anime watchers. Looks like that's the last episode we'll ever see.

Gargantia series...

where awesome AI mechs die.

I'm guessing they do that so no one has something so overpowering in the series. There is hope that Chamber will be eventually revived, since there is a blueprint on how to make an earlier version of Chamber. I guess we'll never know, since there will probably not be another series.

It was a fun ride.

How I hate Underwater for translating all the 15 eps and first OVA but dropping the second one.

Have those S2 novels come out yet?

Part I of the S2 novel comes out this 29th August.

The new protagonists are Russell (the boy) and Skaya/Sukaya (the girl), both from politically opposed land nations whose existences were alluded to in the recent OVAs.
It also guest stars a now 18-year old Ledo. It is touted the novel will conclude Ledo's story.

Hopefully some kind individuals will attempt to translate, or summarise the sequel novels for the international Gargantia fans who can't read Japanese...

PS. Ledo's aged well this past 2 years, hasn't he? (S2 takes place 2 years after S1).

I watched the sub of OVA 2 and was frankly unimpressed.

Leema as the commander of the subversion team giving order to two guys twice her age or more was pretty unbelievable. The battle ended pretty abruptly as well. Maybe if I had gone back to watch the first installment it might have been more compelling, but I doubt it. And, really, aren't Ledo and Amy ever going to kiss? They seem as much like an imouto and an onii-sama as a romantic couple.
This might have worked better had it been six episodes with some more plot development. As it stands, it just felt too rushed to be convincing.

I miss Chamber. He was the best character in the entire series.

Anyone know if the LN is out in the states yet? I can't find hardly any information about it and I love this series q.q

Unfortunately the LN isn't out in America and has yet to be discussed if it will be. Fortunately here is a website with all the illustrations in both of the novels as well as the ending for both Ledo and Amy. Warning.....beware of intense spoilers.

The way I see it, a season 2 will only come out if either the novel sells well enough or another anime production studio decides to buy the rights for the series to finish it off with a season 2.

SPOILER ALERT: Ledo and Amy get married at the end of season 2

Does anyone know the name of the books. I have been searching everywhere to purchase them but can't find them. If anyone knows where i can buy the Season 2 books, or the actual title name of the books please let me know. Thanks


NM I found them on CDJapan. If anyone else interested here are the links. Now hopefully I can find someone to translate them.

Does anyone have any links to spoilers that have translated them? Can’t read Japanese and don’t think anyone’s gonna be translating the books anytime soon.

Funny thing, I just watched the OVAs again because Crunchyroll added them to their lineup. I didn't remember either of them all that well after four years. After watching, I had the same response I wrote above (https://forums.animesuki.com/showthread.php?p=5669167#post5669167)!

I've always had this theory that some of the ideas Urobuchi Gen had for a 2nd season of Gargantia ended up becoming Aldnoah.Zero.

In other words, we would've been watching badass Ledo fight an invasion against his former comrades using the lower tech gear of Gargantia, instead of some random teenager with poor facial expressions.

In the end, Gargantia never got a sequel and what we got instead was leftovers that had to become something else

It was supposed to get a sequel anime, but the plans never came to be and the sequel story was novelized instead.
