Gargantia #11 — The Most Boring Cult in the World

June 16th, 2013


How do you make a lesbian pirate jetskiing lobster harem queen this boring?

FYI, for whatever inane reason, next week’s episode airs two hours earlier than usual. Not that it really means much for me since it normally airs at I think 6am my time so I’m typically lackadaisical about getting a post up anyway on a Sunday morning, but it’ll be airing an even ungodlier hour of the morning next week. Now you know.


You know, it’s almost admirable how they can make so many episodes with absolutely goddamned bloody nothing in them. Red barely even bothered to show up this week and it was just to be talked at for a moment or two and then gasp when shown his pet tits. Good lord, I can’t even say if his commander is even alive after this episode. Given that he appeared only in video screens and holograms, there’s an even chance of him being dead and the machines running the show, or some kind of monstrous mutant that can only survive hooked up to the machines. How boringly black and white either one makes everything. Maybe it’ll surprise me and the real twist will be nothing at all. That would be… almost oddly appropriate for the show.

The real surprise of the episode was the return of the lobster jetskiing lesbian harem pirate queen… Only without the lobster, jetski, lesbians, harems, or pirates. What she did have was the only effort put into the animation for the episode in a bizarrely overanimated sequence. I have no idea what she was even doing there. The rest can more or less be summarized as "There’s a cult that likes to paint faces." Thanks, show. I wasn’t sure last week after just seeing the robes, facepainting, anachronistic staves, and dangling corpses. But now I know.

    Perhaps the real Information here, are in the last Minutes.. What will happen? Why is Amy on this Display?

    “in a bizarrely overanimated sequence”
    Oh, at least there’s something to look forward to this time.

  • Burnout says:

    I’m fairly certain next week is the big fight.

  • Anonymous says:

    I don’t understand why there is such a big deal about killing the Hideaze or not. They are not actually humans. They are violent towards humans. They stop humanity from gaining a higher level of technology or regaining surface areas. Why not just eliminate them all. I cannot side with the main character. I side with the villain which makes this show dull.

    • Athos says:

      Sugita mentioned it’s Hideauze skin what makes the electric water currents or whatever that ships use as a power source. If they kill all of them, humans would be screwed.

      With that said, nobody really cares about the Hideauze anymore, what with the crazy AI subplot and the revenge of the lesbian pirates and whatnot.

  • Tiresias says:

    Oh please the Commander’s obviously dead, it’s so blatant that doesn’t even count as a twist.

  • The Phantom says:

    Hey pirate girl is back! But no action whatsoever, just a bunch of nosense.
