Judging by last week's preview this episode will be more slice-of-life than the previous 3 episodes. I'm interested to see more of Gargantia and whatever shenanigans Amy's friends might have in store for us. :)

Wow... he just started working and he is already in dept. such treatment -_-

lightbringer 2013-04-28 11:44

I was wrong. At the rate he's going, he'll have full mastery of spoken moonspeak (seaspeak?) within an episode or two.

I am suspicious of the black antena looking thinig, it looks out of place...

SonicSpeed 2013-04-28 12:58

During the flashback, is that his little brother send into space, because he was weak, disabled, or anything that possible has to do with his health. He seem to be sad because all he remember is that his little brother has that flute and he probably played the flute before. Considers that he recall his memory.

Entravity 2013-04-28 13:03

Nice calm episode, but the end part is well done. It made me actually care for his situation and the disparity between two different people.

Yeah, that was the one thing that seemed out of place. It looked like a tower where someone lived but I doubt that was its original purpose. Unlike everything else in Gargantia it didn't appear corroded. Plus the scale of thing was huge. Pointing straight up it reminds me of an attachment point for a space elevator. I suppose it could also be the tube to a rail launcher.

Looks like Bebel will be around alot to give Ledo some perspective. Well, also because he has alot of time to talk to Ledo because of his condition. Ledo will at least understand that "sick" people can contribute in some form or another. Hopefully, Ledo will find his place in this society outside of being the military ass kicker he's been so far.

Gargantia 04 - Cruise Control

This is the kind of story I was expecting from this series back when it was announced. The first episode since the beginning with nobody getting killed, no overtly military elements - just surviving and enjoying life with friends at sea on Gargantia. It's good to see Ledo starting to snap out of his mindset, and that brief flashback hints that soldiers like him aren't born, they're made. I know giant space... things (Cryptids?) aren't the most pleasant to deal with, but Earth looks like the better place to live. I should know, I've lived there my whole life. (*rimshot*) Chamber does look a little suspicious with his intent to stop Ledo from being here, even if he is a hero and starting to get used to it, but he's an AI - one with some degree of sentience, mind you, but if Chamber started living here I can see it ending up like Straight Title Robot Anime's finale. He can't process the non-military life on Earth and just shuts down. Laughter has that effect on a person. I know this relaxing pace can't be kept up forever, but next week looks like a beach/swimsuit episode, and that means at least a little bit of fanservice. Viva fanservice! The Gargantians are what got me watching this series, and they're the ones I'm rooting for. Plus, their swimsuits look sexier than the ones in Majestic Prince. This is a very crucial element to weigh the shows on.

hai_san 2013-04-28 13:23

Oha only 4th ep and Ledo is already in troubled thought about this "home". Bebel 2 killer lines+flute makes Ledo from obedient soldier to a more "human" being. Dunno about the boy in capsule is that Ledo younger brother or is it himself there and the one outside is his brother/father/genetic donor?

Gravitas Free Zone 2013-04-28 13:28

The bit with the rain catching brought up another minor bit of scene trivia from Waterworld... though it did provide some further insight on their technology level; they would need to have some form of water treatment to support that large a population, but natural fresh water would still be an important supplement. Not knowing how the ships are powered, it's difficult to guess whether there is any other means of desalinating.

Big black tower: There is a building with some plants growing on it at the top. Presumably we'll find out what that is in due time.

It would seem that Chamber is more willing to roll with the punches in the current circumstances than Ledo is, but that's the benefit of being a pragmatic AI, I suppose. It might also be possible that Chamber does have some idea of where they are but it makes no sense to it yet. And now we find that Chamber is willing to be directed by others... which, presumably would not extend to hostile actions directed toward Ledo or other humans, but might give people bad ideas about removing Ledo from circulation.

So the Galactic Alliance's entire social organization is based around what seems to be the Clone Life and being cogs in the big wheel? The first episode suggested a civilian population on Avalon, but that seems a bit less likely now. Then again, maybe there is one, and it would be a matter of Ledo needing to be pointed at the right... places... to go while on shore leave.

Next week: Beach Episode already?

Kirarakim 2013-04-28 13:28

This episode was excellent, even though it was just slice of life with world and character building it was done so well.

Ledo is so clueless and adorable. Not really sure how he grew up as well as he did in the world he grew up in. Loved his conversation with Amy's little brother.

And can I say how pleased I am Bebel is a little brother and not a little sister. :)

Looks like next week is the swimming service episode.

I only wonder when the plot line is going to kick into gear, after all this is only a one cour series. It's fantastic they are taking the time to build the world and characters but I just hope things won't be rushed in the end.

ookamigirl 2013-04-28 13:32

Dealing with the aftermath of all the damages.
Nice and relaxing episode this time.
Ledo seems to have been adapting nicely.
At least he got to spend some time with Amy.
Guess he still hasn't figured out that people have more freedom there.
He doesn't know how to be free...

MUAHAHAHAHAHA 2013-04-28 13:36

The whole conversation between Ledo and Bebel seems like therapy session between a patient and a psychologist.

Tranhieu 2013-04-28 13:41

Very nice episode. Though we all expected Ledo's gonna change his mindset sooner or later from being a strict soldier who always follows orders and rational thinking to a more understanding human being, this episode really struck me by how the world of future Earth is so beautifully depicted without exaggerating the idea of 'everyone lives together happily ever after'. Plus the way it skillfully brings up those nuances of the 2 worlds (the downpour, families, kids) really grew on me. All in all, most favorite episode so far. I've had enough violence with Shingeki no Kyojin already :P

Kirarakim 2013-04-28 13:50

Okay at first I thought Ledo's flashback was all him at different ages but then I looked at the screencaps again and realize it must be his own brother.

I guess Ledo's brother was killed because he was not a benefit to society.
