Gargantia #07 — Zero Erections for Red

May 19th, 2013


Well there goes my interest again.


No surfer lesbian lobster harem pirates? No uncomfortable attempts to give Red a chubby? An entire episode of talking heads, characters not actually doing a bloody thing, wailing violins, and "fighting baaaaaaad"? Well paint me green and call me Gumby because it’s time to stretch everything out again like there’s no tomorrow. Although I think the most damning part of this episode was the end, when someone simply keeled over from a heart attack after all the ‘excitement’ had passed. Otherwise, it would have just ended with the only thing happening being everyone standing really, really still for a couple minutes. 

Also, by excitement, I mean that the plan to avoid the evil glowing sea aliens was to shut everything down until they went away. Good lord, there was even a point where someone dropped a wrench and everyone gasped in panic that the sound of a single wrench falling would have doomed the entire city. I guess they must have also butchered all the cows on the spot to make sure that none of them mooed at the wrong time and doomed the entire city. Also, might I add, the whole stillness and quiet thing? That would have been a lot more tense (or any tense at all) without the music swelling and heaving through the entire thing. Whatever tone they were going for there, they didn’t hit it at all.

    You truly have no soul. That scene with the Whalesquids was beautifully animated.

  • kenuran says:

    On the contrary Aroduc, Red only has erections for fighting Whalesquids.

  • algorithm says:

    It’s time to pick back Titan on Stills. This week episode’s second half had actual animation. Though talking heads and thinking heads are all around.

    • giuvigiuvio says:

      Nah, I say he should stick with this one. Attack on Still Frames has the most annoying set of characters ever. Everyone is channeling Ouma Shu one way or another.

      • kenuran says:

        Not to mention that there will be a rather long flashback arc coming up that felt like a waste of time back when i was reading the manga. Damn arc brought next to nothing new to the series and felt like it could have been skipped completely. To see that stretched to three episodes in the anime… fuck that.

          And yet when they skip over content instead of stretching it, you faggots will still be whining. Keep whining brah.

        • WL says:

          Stretch the good content, skip the bad one. Not hard, is it? But with a director like this…

        • Aroduc says:

          I think I’ve made it clear that I would prefer to see more lobster slave jetski harem surfing than glowing fish and violins. That’s what I’m counting as good here.

    Dumbass grabbing Bellows’ shirt and not trying to scoop a feel of her tits… seems like Red is not the only one without erections…

  • TT says:

    This anime sucks.

  • The Phantom says:

    Those stupid squids missed airhead girl… come back and take her, stupid jellyfishes.

  • Anonymous says:

    I never thought I’d watch an anime where killing a squid would be taken so seriously.

  • Anonymous says:

    This show started well and then did nothing. I haven’t watched madoka or psycho pass but they have to be better than this.

  • ark noir says:

    Once again I can’t stress how much I despise the Gargantia crew for simple reasons of powerlessnesses marinaded with bravado though I love the bed ridden boy considering he’s ledo’s go to guy for info.Kid still plays with visionaries figures.

    Squids are converging on Gargantia and face off to decide what happens:

    glasses woman who is the titular second in command of Gargantia with gun and two extras versus alien boy with high-tech killer robot hampered by loli waist lock.

    End result nearly made me fling my laptop up the wall.
