I was a bit hesitant at first to actually watch the Suisei no Gargantia specials due to the mediocrity of the series reflected by the 13 episode season. While Gargantia wasn't necessarily bad, the pacing, overall story, and character development are easily depicted as lacking, considering the potential this series innately had. These two specials essentially give background stories behind the story of Gargantia; they fulfill background information in two separate manners. Rather than lumping these two episodes together and calling them 'specials', they should have been split into their own separate OVAs.

The first special covers Ridget, the new overseer and daughter of the read more

Gargantia was a hit or miss series judging from the reactions I have seen. Personally I enjoyed it - despite its predictability, it was a beautiful and charming story that everyone should give a chance.

On the Blu-rays comes not only improvements to the animation and art, but two unaired OVA's. Those hoping for a continuation of events after Gargantia may be disappointed - both episodes take place in the middle or before the events of the series, respectively. These episodes will not mean much to people who haven't already finished Gargantia, so I cannot recommend that you watch these before finishing the series.

For many, the Gargantia series was a hit or miss. Personally, I really liked it, but it wasn't as good toward the end as it was at the beginning. I thought they could have done with a few more episodes, since it was the pacing that killed the end for most people. And now that we have 2 more episodes- both depicting backstories of characters who do kind of need development, so how are they?

Ep 14: I thought this was a pretty okay episode, but kind of forgettable. It showed the backstory of Rigit, the captain of Gargantia. It was a bit sad but far read more

Anime: Shingeki no Kyojin: Kuinaki Sentaku
"Gargantia on the Verdurous Planet Specials" / "Suisei no Gargantia Specials" and "Attack on Titan: No Regrets" / "Shingeki no Kyojin: Kuinaki Sentaku" are both prequels to action shounen series that expand more on the backstory of side characters.

For both of these series tie-ins, additional context is provided and mature issues are tackled.

Ledo and Tigre have the same voice actor. Chibi style characters from the main series. Some episodes pertain to the current parent episodes. While others give you info about the world of that series or an important lesson.
